The Flash Season 2



Critic Ratings: 16
Critics Consensus

"Invincible" isn't the season's strongest installment, but nevertheless holds the audience's attention with life-altering -- even life-ending -- events and a dramatic cliffhanger.

Episode Info

After Zoom unleashes an army of Earth-2 meta-humans on Central City, Barry is shaken when he sees their leader is the Black Canary's Earth-2 doppelgänger, the Black Siren.

Critic Reviews for Invincible

A near-perfect episode, hindered only by a few hiccups.Those issues are easy to brush off, however, because the rest works so well.

Despite staring down a Metapocalypse and the destruction of Central City at the hands of Zoom, Barry is so shockingly positive about their endeavors that it worries everyone around him.

Zoom believes he and Barry are the same, but Barry was protected from the horrors Zoom suffered. To Zoom, the nurturer makes the man not the nature.

Even so, between Caitlin's battle with PTSD, Cisco's big moments and the tragic death of Henry Allen, this episode certainly had its moments.

From Hunter's crazed promise to show Barry the truth, to Henry's final words of live and pride, the editing, performances, and cliffhanger ending succeed in making this as harrowing an experience for the viewer as it is for Barry.

I want to believe* Barry won't succumb to his darker angels, but there's got to be some sort of PTSD/psychological fallout from watching your dad die a pointless death.

Well, now we know why The Flash was so eager to make Henry a part of the STAR Labs team...

This was not my favorite episode of the season. It was incredibly slow and rather frustrating.

It's lookin' like The Flash done used up 80% of their budget on this episode alone cuz It. Is. Goin'. Down!

The Flash was up to its old tricks again last night. It shrugged off the success of Kevin Smith's heartfelt, almost leisurely episode last week in order to once again try and cram in enough plot points for three regular shows.

Invincible managed to indulge all of this season's worst instincts in the space of its (far too long) running time.

We've got one episode left in the season, one that will likely deal with the destruction of Earth-2 envisioned by Cisco, and that's an hour remaining to steady the lilting ship that has been The Flash Season 2.
