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…

The Flash – Season 3 Episode 10

“Borrowing Problems from the Future” The Flash returns from hiatus with the problem of Iris’ future death hanging over the team as a problem that needs a solution. This show has a lot of problems that have really become apparent this season. Chief among them is the tendency to repeat itself. It seems to be…

The Flash – Season 3 Episode 9

“The Present” The Flash moves away from the alien craziness last week and returns to handling its own problems. Revealing that Alchemy is actually Julian under the mask two episodes ago was a really boring and predictable twist that made the world this show inhabits feel hilariously small but this episode does some work to…

The Flash – Season 3 Episode 8

“Invasion!” The “Invasion” crossover really begins on The Flash after the smallest of teases on Supergirl. Barry brings together a group of heroes from far and wide when aliens invade Central City. I’ll start by talking about the invaders as there is so little to them so far that there’s very little to say. We…

The Flash – Season 3 Episode 7

“Killer Frost” The Flash moves things along when Caitlin becomes Killer Frost and the identity of Alchemy is revealed. For me, Caitlin’s manifesting powers has been a mixed bag but has been getting better recently. Having her be honest with Team Flash about what she’s going through has really moved things to a place that…

The Flash – Season 3 Episode 6

“Shade” The Flash deals with Wally’s lack of powers while dealing with Caitlin’s abundance of powers as the consequences of “Flashpoint” continue to present themselves. Wally not having powers has been an ongoing thread this season. It has been established that he is jealous that Jesse was granted powers from the same Dark Matter wave…

The Flash – Season 3 Episode 5

“Monster” The Flash brings the new Wells into the fold as Barry deals with a rampaging Kaiju along with his difficult co-worker. This is the mandatory episode where a character portrayed as being unlikeable has reasons for being the way he is. It looked like the episode was going to subvert that trope when Julian…
