A satisfying episode, albeit slightly dampened by the fact that its blatant purpose was to establish Legends of Tomorrow -- and the shark-based villain that popped up out of nowhere.
The Flash is a fun show, but the seams are showing.
Part of Barry's change as the Flash has been helping others to reconcile themselves with the abnormal changes in their lives, lest they be left dwelling in the past forever.
Enter Jax. Headstrong where Stein is calm, instinctual where Stein is cerebral, he complements the professor psychologically as well as physically, and makes for a much more interesting whole.
Some of The Flash's best moments came early in the series, when Barry Allen was just learning to tame his powers. Last night's episode, The Fury of Firestorm, gives us another young hero to root for.
The plot was more disjointed and unfocused than usual, and the villain is yet another in a long line of underdeveloped foes.
A great balance of moral platitudes and comic book action, but it lacked a lot of the tension that makes certain episodes of The Flash so good.
If you were hoping Iris' long-overdue meeting with her mother would be all sunshine and rainbows, you were probably pretty disappointed by what transpired.
The Flash cast is a bunch of puppies. Put two puppies together, and it adds up to more cute. Quite frankly, it's difficult to dislike any pairing on this show. I'm constantly debating which puppy pairing is cuter, and it feels like splitting hairs.
This was not the most riveting hour of The Flash. While it was kind of nice meeting Jax, the fury of the other Firestorm dude (who knew there were so many of them?!) it fell flat.
Reasonably self-contained, it moved at least one key storyline forward, and it did feature a disposable villain of the week, the structure of the episode didn't really follow the kind of structure you normally associate with episdoes like that.
I can't think of a recent episode ending that has given me as much tonal whiplash, but man what a cliff hanger to end on!
"The Fury of Firestorm" introduces us to Martin Stein's new other half, a reminder that Greg Berlanti and company seem endlessly successful at creating fun and lovable adaptations of comic book superheroes.
