This review is dark and full of spoilers.
The Flash is back to normal, now he has to try and learn to be a hero without his speed. So, we’re going to take a look at some of my favourite moments from episode nineteen of The Flash.
Caitlin meets Killer Frost:
At the end of last weeks episode Zoom steals Caitlin Snow and takes her to Earth Two. In his psychotic mind, Zoom wants Caitlin to feel comfortable and he feels that eventually she will love him the way he says he loves her. Trying to look for a way to escape, Caitlin meets her Earth Two doppelgänger Killer Frost, was really cool to see these two finally meet. The two Caitlins make a deal that if Caitlin Snow breaks Killer Frost out then she will rescue her and help her get back to Earth One, obviously things don’t work out that way. When Killer Frost is released she attempts to kill Caitlin but Zoom comes in and saves her by murdering Killer Frost. Due to the fact that there are probably limitless amounts of Earths we will undoubtedly see Killer Frost again. I really enjoyed this part of the episode, it’s always cool and different seeing the same actor play two different roles at the same time on screen, I can’t wait to see it again.
Barry has to fight without speed:
Harrison Wells gets kidnapped by a new villain called Griffin Grey, he has the power of super strength but every time he uses his power he ages. He stole Wells to get him to cure him of his ‘disease’, but Harrison can’t do it because he doesn’t know how. Team Flash have to figure out a way to save him without Barry’s speed, Barry has to learn to fight evil without his superpower. As always, there is a loophole because the team work out that all they need to do is get Grey to use his powers a few times and he’ll die. Barry puts on his suit which has been upgraded so he can take at most one punch from Grey. Well, Grey gets off two punches and falls over and dies, Barry is somehow completely fine from the second punch but I won’t question it.The Villain was a bit disappointing this episode, I didn’t really care for him living or dying, he was fairly boring.
- Zoom reveals that he wants to conquer more Earths. This was really interesting because now the finale is set up, our team have to try and stop Zoom from creating a ‘Crisis on Infinite Earths’.
- Harrison wells tells Barry that he is going to get him his speed back. However, the way to do that is for Wells to create another Particle Accelerator explosion. This is a way of the show giving us more new villains for next season and for Barry to finally get his speed back.
This was a somewhat enjoyable episode but I think we’re all just waiting for the finale now.
Episode rating: 7
