The Flash - Season 2, Episode 4 - Rotten Tomatoes

The Fury of Firestorm



Critic Consensus: 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.

Episode Info

Barry and the team look for another Firestorm match for Dr. Stein, but when Caitlin meets Jefferson "Jax" Jackson she questions whether he is the right match. Meanwhile, Iris surprises Joe; and Barry and Patty grow closer.

Critic reviews for The Fury of Firestorm

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.
