The Flash – Season 7 Episode 10

The Flash – Season 7 Episode 9

“Timeless” The Flash has Barry and Iris divided on a radical plan to deal with the threat of the Forces as Cisco considers his future. It’s quite common on this show for Barry to have an idea that many would consider to be either stupid or ill advised. He will quite often make plans without…

The Flash – Season 7 Episode 8

“The People V. Killer Frost” The Flash has Frost answer for her crimes and raises issues that could have major effects on Metahumans everywhere. Having Frost accept responsibility for her former crimes was an interesting idea as it flirts with the idea of accountability; something that a lot of superhero media deftly avoids because it’s…

The Flash – Season 7 Episode 7

“Growing Pains” The Flash focuses on Frost when a killer emerges looking to frame her just as Kristen Kramer intensifies her efforts to bring Frost to justice.

The Flash – Season 7 Episode 3

“Mother” The Flash deals with Central City once again under siege as Eva accelerates her plan to take over the city by replacing everyone with mirror duplicates.

The Flash – Season 7 Episode 2

“The Speed of Thought” The Flash deals with an unexpected side effect of the Artificial Speed Force that ends up causing major problems for Team Flash. This has always been a show that wears its heart on its sleeve. Barry in particular is a very emotional person; so much so that frequent references are made…

The Flash – Season 7 Episode 1

“All’s Wells That Ends Wells” The Flash returns for a seventh with the continued efforts to create an Artificial Speed Force, Iris still missing and Eva McCulloch free to wreak havoc.
