Last week on The Flash, a super strong meta kidnapped Wells (Tom Cavanagh) to cure him, thinking he was evil Wells. The strength side effect was accelerated aging. With Barry (Grant Gustin) powerless, they tried to make the meta exert himself so much, he would die of old age. Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) came face to face with Killer Frost. She helped her escape, but just as Frost was ready to get rid of her, Zoom (Teddy Sears) killed her. Wally (Keiynan Lonsdale) wanted to thank the Flash for saving his life, and is ready to turn his whole life around.

The Flash
Season 2 Episode 4: “The Fury Of Firestorm”
Directed by Stefan Pleszczynski
Written by Kai Yu Wu & Joe Peracchio
Starring Grant Gustin, Jesse L. Martin, Danielle Panabaker, Candice Patton, Carlos Valdez, Tom Cavanagh, Victor Garber
Created by Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg, Geoff Johns
The CW
Air Date: Tuesday, October 27th, 2015, 8:00pm

Last week on The Flash, it was a Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller) family reunion, as Lisa Snart (Golden Glider – Peyton List) went to the S.T.A.R. Labs crew for help. For some odd reason, her brother is working with their dad, who abused Lisa mercilessly. She knows Leonard is being forced. Turns out, she was right. Her dad put some kind of injectable explosive into her, and had his finger on the detonator to bend Cold to his will. And his will is a heist. Barry (Grant Gustin) joins the crew in an effort to save Leonard, almost getting himself killed. Cisco (Carlos Valdes) saved the girl, and Barry saved the day, with the added bonus of making Captain Cold seem less evil, thus making him a more believable “legend.” Jesse L. Martin carried the less than stellar side plot of Iris’s (Candice Patton) mother returning. Dr. Stein (Victor Garber) is unwell. The Flash always comes through, so I’m hopeful this piece will become more compelling soon. The biggest of the 52 time breaches is right in the lab, and Earth-2’s Dr. Wells (Tom Cavanagh) comes walking on through. Squeal!!!!

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?

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.
