The War for Central City begins
In the penultimate episode of Flash, Zoom is pulling out the big guns as he is getting all of the major villains together to make one big push to to take over Central city. The opening shot of all the villains attacking the was very cool but Barry beating then all in one swoop seems a little far fetch. My major issue with this is the fact that if all these super villains are taking over the city why not get Ollie. It seems like it wouldn’t take long to bring him in to help for a little then take him back and help with Darhk. I personally would like to both shows get better with this as it would make sense for what villains do in Arrow and Flash effect both shows. Darhk is literally trying to Destroy the world and no one calls the Flash.
The big story of this week is the return of Katie Cassidy. Instead of the Black Canary we get her Earth 2 doppelgänger the Black Siren. It’s great seeing her in a variation of the Canary character as she has gotten so much better from when she first played the character. It was a nice nod when Wells asked the team did they know Laurel Lance and there response was we loved her. We also got the see the return of Reverb and Killer Frost as Cisco and Caitlyn ( returned from her capture by Zoom) had a plan to trick Siren. Overall, it was great seeing Cassidy back.
Barry’s a changed man since his return from the Speed Force. He is very optimistic, maybe even to a point where it maybe even seems cocky. It was being driven in our head the whole episode that Barry is not invincible and fear could actually help him. It was said so much it was almost a point of annoyance. The dialog this week between Zoom and Barry was excellent as Zoom points out the similarities between the two. In the end it was the Final moments that crushed our hearts as we lost a member of team Flash.
Score 8.8 out of 10
