TV Review: The Flash 3.22 “Infantino Street”

The Flash 322-01

The Flash
Season 3 Episode 22: “Infantino Street”
Directed by Michael Allowitz
Written by Andrew Kreisberg and teleplay by Grainne Godfree
Starring Grant Gustin, Jesse L. Martin, Danielle Panabaker, Candice Patton, Carlos Valdes, Tom Cavanagh, Keiynan Lonsdale, Tom Felton
Created by Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg, Geoff Johns
The CW
Air Date: Tuesday, May 16th, 2017, 8:00pm

Last week on The Flash, Cisco (Carlos Valdes) came up with a flawed (but from the heart) plan to prevent Barry (Grant Gustin) from making new memories, so that Savitar-the-Barry-remnant wouldn’t know what it was. It was too successful. Barry and Savitar got complete amnesia. Both myself and Iris (Candice Patton) were happy to see this lighthearted Barry without all the darkness and pain, falling in love with her all over again. Unfortunately, Barry was also crucial to a court case, resulting in a firebug walking. Said firebug attacked, but Wally (Keiynan Lonsdale) had no powers because Savitar never awakened them, and Barry couldn’t control his. Killer Frost (Danielle Panabaker) showed up to help Cisco and Julian (Tom Felton) fix the mess. They got to the Caitlin underneath. HR and Tracy (Tom Cavanagh, Anne Dudek) started falling in love. She finished the “speed force bazooka” but it needs a lot of energy… energy that is guarded by King Shark.

Last week on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, evil Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) said the overridecode to Gideon and plunges the timeship into a whirlwind that landed in Jurassic World. Luckily, Ray (Brandon Routh) still had all his knowledge and shelter from when he was stuck there. He advised Nate (Nick Zano) not to get with Amaya (Maisie Richardson-Sellers) because of her destiny. Sara and Jax (Caity Lotz, Franz Drameh) entered Rip’s brain to get the secret spear info. Inside, they found evil versions of the team and a flesh and blood Gideon. Sara found the real Rip and talked him into fighting for freedom.

Last time on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Damian Darhk (Neal McDonough) narrated the opening, and we got to see how Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman) hooked up with Darhk and Eobard Thawne (Matt Letscher). There was trouble in paradise, with the two seething at Eobard Thawne’s highhandness, while simultaneously at each other’s throats. They were trying to get info out of Rip (Arthur Darvill), but the info just wasn’t there. A safety deposit box in 2025 had a piece of the Spear of Destiny, but they could not get in. Malcolm and Darhk have an assassins sword fight, until the “hippie” made them realize that they should work together. Lily Stein (Christina Brucato) found out she was a time aberration. The team figured out why Thawne was always on the move. The Legion of Doom trapped the monster (kinda looks like a zombie Flash) in a bank vault as partners.

Last time on The Flash, we saw a bit of Julian’s (Tom Felton) history, which basically explained the Alchemy/Savitar situation with something called the Philosopher’s Stone. Earth-3’s Jay Garrick (John Wesley Shipp) was supportive (almost like a dad), with wise words and a suggestion to get rid of the Philosophers Stone (oh yeah-fixed Julian and “fixed” Savitar), of throwing it in the speed force. Barry (Grant Gustin) accidentally ran 5 months into the future and watched Iris (Candice Patton) die at the hands of Savitar. Barry gave Iris an awesome apartment for Christmas.

Created by Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg, Marc Guggenheim, Phil Klemmer, Sarah Schechter
The CW
Air Date: Thursday, October 27th, 2016, 8:00pm

Last week on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, they ran into The Justice Society of America in 1942. And by “ran into” I mean “got captured by.” Nate Haywood (Nick Zano) was giddy because he met his grandfather, Commander Steel (Matthew MacCaull), and tried to prove the familial connection through his dog-tags, and personal stories. We saw two of our favorite presently dead villains in the past, Eobard Thawne and Damian Darhk (Matt Letscher and Neal McDonough), in cahoots with each other and the Nazis, for nukes and a super serum. Sarah (Caity Lotz) tried to kill Darhk to prevent Laurel’s death, and Thawne ended up killing Rex Tyler (Patrick J. Adams), spurring Vixen (Maisie Richardson-Sellers) to blame Mick (Dominic Purcell).

Last week on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, it was 1986 and they were looking into Operation Svarog, a secret Soviet project that Vandal Savage (Casper Crump) was involved in. Ray and Snart (Brandon Routh and Wentworth Miller) teamed up to get info from this beautiful Russian madwoman, who is trying to build a Russian Firestorm. Ray strikes out, but Snart piques her interest for a while. Predictable fight ensues and half of them are captured. Sara and Hawkgirl (Caity Lotz and Ciara Renee) train as a way for Hawkgirl to control the animal within. But Sara still has limited control over herself, and is humbled. The Timemaster confronts Hunter (Arthur Darvill), offering him immunity and safe passage for the team. But it’s a lie.

The Flash
Season 2 Episode 5: “The Darkness And The Light”
Directed by Steve Shill
Written by Ben Sokolowski & Grainne Godfree
Starring Grant Gustin, Jesse L. Martin, Danielle Panabaker, Candice Patton, Carlos Valdez, Tom Cavanagh
Created by Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg, Geoff Johns
The CW
Air Date: Tuesday, November 3rd, 2015, 8:00pm

Last week on The Flash, Harrison Wells from Earth-2 saved The Flash!!! From a Sharkman! Woohoo! What is this, the Syfy channel? So happy that Tom Cavanagh is back. Now I don’t know if this is the real Harrison Wells, or if on Earth-2, Eobard Thawne also killed the real one. My guess is that this is the real one, because Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) never became The Flash. Jay Garrick (Teddy Sears) did. Plus the S.T.A.R. Labs of Earth-2 was bustling and sunny. Earth-1’s lab gang during this entire episode is trying to find another other half to Dr. Stein (Victor Garber), because he is becoming instable. They find one in the form of Jax Jackson (Franz Drameh). Barry’s new love interest, Patty Spigot (Shantel VanSanten) is adorable.

TV Review: The Flash 1.21 “Grodd Lives”
Olympus Athens   |  

The Flash Grodd Lives

The Flash
Season 1 Episode 21: “Grodd Lives”
Directed by Dermott Downs
Written by Grainne Godfree, Kai Yu Wu
Starring Grant Gustin, Jesse L. Martin, Danielle Panabaker, Rick Cosnett, Candice Patton, Carlos Valdez, Tom Cavanagh
The CW
Air Date: Tuesday, May 5th, 2015, 8:00pm

Last week’s The Flash was exactly what the title said – a trap. Except instead of the team tricking Dr. Wells (Tom Cavanagh) into confessing to Barry’s mom’s murder, Dr. Wells had been playing them the whole time. He had screens set up, with cameras everywhere. The trap involved Cisco (Carlos Valdes) revisiting his alternate reality death experience he’s been dreaming about (Inception Vs. Dreamscape – classic line). There was another Barry (Grant Gustin) flashback to his coma days. A little spark of electricity, then and now, “sparked” Iris’s (Candice Patton) discovery. So having the exact face, build, and mannerisms as the man you lived with your whole life doesn’t give it away, but some static does? Whatever. I’ll forgive you because thank god everyone knows now. Eddie (Rick Cosnett) attempts to propose to Iris, despite Joe (Jesse L. Martin) not giving his blessing, but he is kidnapped by Reverse Flash. So should Joe and Barry send Reverse Flash a thank you card?

TV Review: The Flash 1.18 “All Star Team Up”

The Flash All Star Team Up

The Flash
Season 1 Episode 18: “All Star Team Up”
Directed by Kevin Tancharoen
Written by Grainne Godfree and Kai Yu Wu
Starring Grant Gustin, Jesse L. Martin, Danielle Panabaker, Rick Cosnett, Candice Patton, Carlos Valdez, Tom Cavanagh
The CW
Air Date: Tuesday, April 14th, 2015, 8:00pm

The Flash! Oh how we’ve missed you the last two weeks! We did have awesome videos to console us like “Superhero Fight Club,” an inside look at this episode, and even got a little preview of “All Star Team Up”.

Last week we got a mega geek treat with Mark Hammil as the Trickster. We all swooned when he told his protege, “I am your father.” On top of that, the Master-Padawan moment I referenced was Dr. Wells (Tom Cavanagh) guiding Barry (Grant Gustin) on how to get to a speed to pass through solid objects, and all but said, “Feel the Force.” This led Barry to be sure that he was the Reverse Flash. Flashback to the night Barry’s mom was killed. Dr. Wells is… not Dr. Wells? We see the entire ugliness. Happy Dr. Wells was run off the road, his wife Tess died, Reverse Flash sucked the life out of him and assumed his identity, all because he got locked in the past after murdering Barry’s mom.

The Flash 1.18 “All Star Team Up” review: The verdict? This episode is deserving of the mega-buildup it generated. Each millisecond was hypnotizing.
