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….

“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.

“Invincible” Zoom begins his campaign to bring chaos to Earth-1 when he unleashes a legion of Metahumans on the unsuspecting population in the second season penultimate episode of The Flash.

“The Runaway Dinosaur” Kevin Smith directs an episode of The Flash…oh and some stuff happens to the characters that populate this show.

“Rupture” Barry takes advice from all of his father figures as The Flash deals with the problem of Barry’s lost speed when Zoom begins a campaign to bring Earth-1 to its knees.

“Flash Back” The Flash looks back to the past as Barry travels back in time to look for help increasing his speed from Eobard Thawne. Time travel is a really tricky idea in storytelling and The Flash hasn’t typically handled it all that well. When Barry decided that he was going to travel back in…

The Flash – Season 1 Episode 23

“Fast Enough” Season 1 of The Flash comes to an end and I don’t think the conclusion was anywhere near what anyone was expecting. I know I certainly wasn’t but in this case unpredictability is a very good thing. On shows like this we’re probably all used to the season finale boiling down to the…
