Let me start out with saying I’m no writer, But I wanted to write an article on everything that was good & bad about this season of The Flash. There will be spoilers for season 3 so if you haven’t watched the finale yet come back when you have…….
Bad: Why was Flashpoint only 1 DAMN episode! I’m a huge Flash/Barry Allen fan so when I heard this season was gonna cover Flash point I was soooooo excited. Then they go and make it 1 episode to disappoint me/the rest of the fan base. If they we’re only gonna dedicate 1 episode outta 23! on Flash point WHAT WAS THE POINT of it?
Good: The double part episodes/Crossovers are the best! The whole arc with Gorilla Grodd was amazing Oh and Gorilla City is BAD ASS!! As I just said the crossover eps are the best but I had a problem with this year’s which is the integration of all the shows for example: Supergirl’s episode was a throwaway (Barry & Cisco show up in the last 30 seconds) Which they show on The Flash episode anyway.
Bad: When Barry travels to the future (accidentally) in episode 9 he sees Iris West die. Why is this bad? 1. there was no way in hell it was gonna stick. 2. We spend 14 episodes on something we know is not going to stick!
Good: H.R. …..Unlike some I actually liked his character since he was different from the other wells’s. The way Cisco & H.R’s relationship evolves through the course of almost the whole season is one of the best aspects of season 3. I liked that he brought a sense of levity & goofiness which we needed with all the mopey shit this season.
Bad: EMO douche bag Barry….. OMG as much as I love the Flash seeing Barry be sad & miserable is fucking awful! Like my god give the kid a rainbow, a lollipop & a dog for christ sakes! I need happy Barry back.
Good: Caitlin Snow’s progression to Killer Frost. This is by far the best arc in the whole season since we know it’s gonna happen but are all praying Caitlin can beat it and not become Killer Frost. The way Cisco fights to keep her from going to the dark side is touching and ultimately heart breaking. Though I do wish we had gotten more then 5 episodes with her as full blown Killer Frost
Bad: Draco Malfoy as Julian Albert/Dr. Alchemy…… The kid is a good actor but for some reason or another just didn’t fit the vibe of the show/team dynamic. As much as they wanted us to get invested in Julian & Caitlin as a couple it just never worked.
Bonus: Why in the hell was there a musical episode three quarters of the way through the damn season!!!! It broke up all the flow that had been built up from the past couple episodes. I love musical episodes but there is a time and place for it NOT 3 quarters of the way through! Have the musical ep but it should of been around episodes 8-13.
So for all my good and bad points what do I ultimately think of season 3…… Well it’s good just maybe loses it’s direction from time to time I don’t think the show has fallen off a cliff like others but that all depends on what happens with the finale outcome.
