This review is dark and full of spoilers.
This week gave us an absolutely huge Flash episode within the context of the story. The finale is set up.
Let’s take a look at some of the best moments from Season 2 episode 20 of The Flash.
Iris reveals her feelings to Barry:
At the end of last season Barry reveals his love for Iris but she isn’t available and now at the end of this season the roles are reversed, we don’t know for fact that Barry doesn’t want her but if he did, surely he would have said something? I’m not a ‘shipper’ of Barry and Iris at all, in fact Iris is my least favourite character on the show, she just constantly annoys me and says dumb sh*t. I do expect Barry and Iris to be together at the start of Season 3 because they are a big comic book couple and they have been setting there relationship up forever. Hopefully, when they are together it will be somewhat satisfying for all the fans of the show.
By the end of the episode Barry agrees that the best way to stop Zoom is for Harrison Wells to recreate the particle accelerator explosion but just on Barry’s body. At first I thought this was the dumbest idea but when Wells said he could contain it I was like ‘Yeah man cool, all those explosions you’re good at containing right?’; but I trust Wells, he’s a good dude.The explosion is successfully recreated but it appears to make Barry disintegrate in to pure energy; similarly to in the Flashpoint comic. Obviously, Barry is not dead he just needs to find a way to form himself back in to his body and out of pure speed force energy. It’s going to be interesting to see how they actually decide to show Barry’s thoughts and actions whilst he is just energy, I hope it doesn’t look bad. Some of the visual effects on Flash don’t look great but it is a TV show so you just have to accept it.
Other things I enjoyed:
- It looks like Wally and Jesse were hit with some of the energy. However, they didn’t have the exact conditions to replicate the speed force so maybe they will get different powers to Barry? I don’t expect it to happen straight away but eventually we’ll find out that they can do things to.
- It was cool to see Henry Allen back and I actually think now that Earth two Flash is him. Obviously his Earth two counterpart, but don’t quote me on that. Just a guess.
- I enjoyed the Rupture stuff a bit but at the same time I really didn’t care for it. We didn’t need to see that.
- CAN ZOOM PLEASE STOP TRYING TO GET CAITLIN TO BANG HIM! DUDE BACK OFF, SHE ISN’T INTERESTED!
Episode rating: 7.5
