H.R. Wells' life and Cisco Ramon's heart are both on the line in a banter-filled installment that gives a welcome spotlight to The Flash's secondary characters.
The Flash finally gets its formula right, mixing zaniness, a dash of pathos, ridiculous sci-fi, and a lot of heart.
It was an immensely fun hour that put Cisco and Iris in the spotlight and allowed them to shine.
It's a relatively lighthearted, angst-free hour with Team Flash.
"Dead Or Alive" succeeds largely because of a script that isn't fearful of being playful with its characters and allowing pairing favorites to thrive onscreen.
Seriously, these people have a problem with being secretive and Iris' arc in 'Dead or Alive' makes that abundantly clear.
The effects team really outdid itself with this one, and it made for a great nod to all the little worlds we've glimpsed the past few seasons.
I thought it was a trial by combat...to the DEATH?! I'm just gonna sip this tea though...
The best part of Gypsy's appearance was the flirting between her and Cisco. Their chemistry was off the charts, so hopefully she will make a return appearance.
In the span of less than half a season, The Flash has done enough character work with HR Wells that his narrative in this episode isn't just believable. It's almost ... touching.
Each episode feels more or less satisfying. "Dead Or Alive" falls more on the "more" side of that spectrum.
It was nice seeing Cisco take the spotlight and continue his trend of falling head over heels for the bad girl in his life.
Dead or Alive brought back a much needed lighter tone that mostly got away from the heavier Iris is gonna die subplot to have a little fun.
