Critic reviews for Potential Energy
Wells has grown frantic in his quest to rescue his daughter from Zoom. While he promised the villain he'd help him steal Barry's speed in exchange for Cassie's life, he's open to Cisco's idea of stealing Zoom's speed instead.
Once you throw in the always unpredictable Dr. Wells, this episode delivered on pretty much every front.
Overall there was too much fun to be had for me to get worked up over anything. If you've gotta do a disposable villain episode, this is how you do it.
Despite the winter finale having left me feeling cold it certainly feels like the show has been gone for far too long even if in reality it has only been a little over a month.
Barry's relationship drama also crosses paths with the meta-human-of-the-week. We don't have any hot, low-level criminals, or a thief with a surprising way of words - man, this episode could really use Captain Cold's energy.
