The Flash – Season 4 Episode 5

“Girls Night Out” The Flash brings the female characters into focus as the budding newly-weds go on their bachelor/bachelorette parties. This show has always had a bit of a woman problem in terms of how the female characters are handled and this episode highlights this while attempting to address it. Iris’ Bachelorette party is hilariously…

The Flash – Season 4 Episode 4

“Elongated Journey Into Night” The Flash introduces another DC Comics hero as Cisco is forced to deal with the unexpected arrival of Gypsy’s disapproving father.

The Flash – Season 3 Episode 23

“Finish Line” The Flash closes off season 3 by revealing the fate or Iris and delivering a final confrontation between Barry and Savitar. I suspected last week that something would happen to undo or invalidate Iris’ death at the hands of Savitar. With an entire episode left to go it made sense that there was…

The Flash – Season 3 Episode 22

“Infantino Street” The Flash reaches the moment we have all been waiting for and reveals if Team Flash have what it takes to stop Savitar from killing Iris.
