Critic Reviews for The Wrath of Savitar

I'm just here for HR and his wild a** quotables... This dude has me crying.

Aug 2, 2018 | Full Review…

It is starting to get a little ridiculous how much of the drama on this show is fueled by characters keeping secrets from one another.

Aug 2, 2018 | Rating: 8.3 | Full Review…

Action packed, emotionally raw and offering up major decisions and pitfalls for each character to fall into.

Aug 1, 2018 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

'The Wrath of Savitar' makes a strong case for fear being what "makes us do a lot of things that we shouldn't," as Barry so poignantly puts it.

Jul 31, 2018 | Full Review…

Almost every character makes decisions that are meant to move the plot forward, first and foremost, even when those choices don't make much sense.

Aug 1, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Boy, how about that ending?

Jul 31, 2018 | Full Review…

Overall, the episode (and in the end, perhaps the season storyline as a whole) succeeded because of Savitar.

Jul 30, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It's another heartbreaking moment courtesy of strong performances from the cast, especially Grant Gustin.

Jul 26, 2018 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

A consistently thrilling entry that moves both plot and character in more ways than the last seven or so episodes, and one that might even belong alongside the series' very best.

Jul 25, 2018 | Full Review…

Enough with the members of Team Flash withholding crucial information from each other to create artificial drama. It's so tired, it's so boring, it's so old.
