The Flash – Season 3 Episode 19

“The Once and Future Flash” The Flash returns from hiatus for a trip to a dark future where Iris is dead and Team Flash has been disbanded. There’s a dark shadow hanging over The Flash at the moment. Building up to Iris’ death at the hands of Savitar has consumed the show and made this…

The Flash – Season 3 Episode 18

“Abra Kadabra” The Flash introduces a villain from the future who claims to know Savitar’s true identity and offers it in exchange for letting him go. In every superhero story there will eventually be the impossible choice where the hero can’t possibly make the right one. Abra Kadabra (David Dastmalchian) represents that for Barry and…

The Flash – Season 3 Episode 17

“Duet” The Flash crosses over with Supergirl when Barry and Kara are put in a shared coma fantasy where life is an old timey musical. I’ll preface this by saying that this episode will definitely be a “mileage may vary” sort of episode as your enjoyment will largely depend on whether or not you like musicals….

The Flash – Season 3 Episode 16

“Into the Speed Force” The Flash sends Barry into the Speed Force in an attempt to rescue Wally from the prison that he was tricked into by Savitar. This episode counts as something of a sequel to “The Runaway Dinosaur” in that both share the plot detail of Barry interacting with the Speed Force on a…

The Flash – Season 3 Episode 15

“The Wrath of Savitar” The Flash brings Savitar back into focus as the self proclaimed “God of Speed” engineers his escape from the Speed Force. I’ve been really hard on The Flash lately and that’s largely because I no longer enjoy this show. This season has been bad from almost every angle and there’s no…

The Flash – Season 3 Episode 14

“Attack on Central City” The Flash picks up on the cliffhanger from last week when Grodd stages an attack on Central City at the head of his Gorilla army. I’ve talked in the past about how I applaud the ambition of the creative team on this show. Having Grodd and King Shark in episodes at…

The Flash – Season 3 Episode 13

“Attack on Gorilla City” The Flash heads to Earth-2  when Harry is captured by Gorilla Grodd who has bigger plans than Team Flash initially thought. Grodd (David Sobolov) has been one of the more interesting antagonists this show has had. A lot of that is to do with the fact that he has been rendered convincingly…

The Flash – Season 3 Episode 12

“Untouchable” The Flash explores the pupil/teacher dynamic between Barry and Wally while a metahuman able to kill with a single touch threatens Joe. Barry training a new Speedster should be a more interesting arc than it currently is. He has a lot of experience fighting crime as the Flash so figuring out how to pass…

The Flash – Season 3 Episode 11

“Dead or Alive” The Flash takes a more light hearted approach when a Bounty Hunter shows up from Earth-19 to bring back H.R. so that he can answer for the crime of interdimensional travel. I’m so glad that this episode was fun. The Flash just hasn’t been much fun lately because everything has been so…
