Critic Reviews for Going Rogue

The show continues to not be afraid of properly showcasing Flash's powers as we get a cool sequence of Flash racing in and out to save passengers before the train crashes.

It addressed The Flash's one real weakness by introducing a memorable villain and leaving the door wide open for a continued rivalry... We can only hope the rest of the Flash rogues enjoy debuts this strong.

I don't even know where to begin with Wentworth Miller as Len Snart. I believe the technical term I'm searching for here is "badass."

The Flash may be too hot to handle, but Wentworth Miller's addition to the show is too cold to hold. The special guest star turned in a great performance as the episode's villain...

Not merely content with introducing this iconic villain, tonight's episode also starts to look at how the presence of people with abilities has complicated things for not only our heroes, but also for Central City's normal criminals.

The Flash gives us its mission statement... This show is fun, and "Going Rogue" is the most fun episode yet.

Not only does it feature one of the Flash's best-known enemies, it's also a crossover episode... The presence of both characters helps make this the best episode since the pilot.

The Flash has finally offered up a villain who's genuinely worthy of the term... It seems like there's a remarkably solid throughline between the script and the show's intentions and Miller's performance.

Another solid, highly enjoyable episode with some moments of visual flourish. The Flash is showing no signs of slowing yet.

If The Flash is to grow beyond the freak-of-the-week concept, it would have to get Leonard Snart absolutely right. And rest easy, DC fans, it did... The episode nails the Flash/Cold dynamic.
