The fifth season finale of The Flash is full of a lot of endings, not just for the running storylines, but also for a few major characters.
As The Flash fast approaches its season finale, the show drops a plot twist that, let’s be honest, we all saw coming a long time ago.
Between two Cicadas, Eobard Thawne, and now Nora seemingly going dark, The Flash is really inundated with villains this season. Why not bring back a bunch of minor leaguers while we’re at it?
After five seasons, Fox’s Gotham ended its run last Thursday with a finale episode that tries very hard not just to wrap up its own storylines, but to tie the entire Batman mythology together.
The Flash has a lot going on this week, with enough plot and storylines to fill at least three episodes. I kind-of wish the show had just picked one of them to focus on.
As the old axiom goes, all actors really want to direct. Danielle Panabaker, who normally plays Caitlin Snow, gets her shot with this week’s episode of The Flash, in which she even gets to introduce a new speedster villain.
The premise of Shazam! seems primed for contemporary audiences. It’s the story of a young boy trapped in the body of an adult, a feeling that comic book movie viewers long away from high school should easily relate to.
With two Cicadas on the loose, The Flash has his hands full this week. You know, it occurs to me that birds eat cicadas in real life. Perhaps it’s time to bring back Hawkman and Hawkgirl!
If Barry’s plan to simply ask evil villain Cicada nicely to give up his powers seemed kind of half-baked, The Flash sort of addresses that this week. Unfortunately, the episode then doubles-down on it in a very unconvincing manner...
The CW and Syfy networks nearly converge this week as The Flash delivers a cheesy monster smackdown not far removed from something The Asylum might produce. I assume the resemblance is deliberate.
Between Russian Doll and the Happy Death Day sequel, Groundhog Day narratives are having quite a moment lately. Even The Flash gets in the game this week with a time-loop story that may be one of the better episodes of the season.
I wonder what’s going on with actor Carlos Valdes this season. Cisco is absent from The Flash again this week, which means that the meta-humans get to name themselves. That turns out to be a problem.
