"Shade" sheds light on some of the series' meta issues, but carefully crafted dialogue and character moments make it a standout for the season.
The Killer Frost story line is one of the season's best, so I appreciate how Cisco and Caitlin's friendship plays such a significant role in its development.
While this was a pretty intense and weighty episode, the show still found other ways to inject some lightness into the proceedings.
There's a contradiction that plays out over and over again on the show, and it was front and center tonight.
Cisco dropped one of the most beautiful, powerful and moving speeches.
The Flash is trapped in a funny place right now. The core cast remains as appealing as ever... but this season is struggling to build a status quo compelling enough to rival its predecessors.
In what's becoming a trend this season, the titular villain of 'Shade' matters very, very little... but by finally moving forward with a couple of season 3's subplots, the episode gets a pass.
Tom Cavanagh is awesome, and even when he's playing the mildly annoying H.R. (a version of Wells from Earth-19), he's still pretty great.
The best episode so far this season, the focus was primarily on the ramifications of obtaining metahuman powers and their potential villainous side effects.
"Shade" finally affords Wally and Caitlyn the breathing room they deserve, and the show will likely be all the better for it.
Apart from some questionable villain design choices, Shade stood out as an exceptional episode that bodes well for Season 3 going forward.
