Finish Line



Critic Consensus: Equal parts heart-felt and harrowing, "Finish Line" tops off a thoroughly entertaining season of The Flash and leaves just enough anticipation for season four.

Critic Reviews for Finish Line

The subtle Cisco love and motivation in this episode was crazy. From Gypsy to HR, Caitlin to Flash himself, it's clear the team has one true constant that holds them down every step of the way, and his name is Cisco Ramon!

It paved the way for a lighter, happier Season 4, regardless of which character will be wearing the Flash costume by then.

H.R. has been annoying at times, though he's had his moments along the way. But this episode was his greatest.

The ultimate showdown between Barry and Savitar did not disappoint.

It's a confident and at times clunky episode that manages to recapture some of the show's heart right when it needs it the most.

"Finish Line" falls victim to yet another series of poor narrative choices that go back on a whole season's worth of story and growth.

It opened the door for The Flash to try something a little different at this season's end and perhaps even course-correct for past mistakes.

The show down is a marvel to watch, merging everything from wonderful stunt work, to high stakes to character drama that makes for possibly the finest scene in the whole third season.

Given that Caitlin's embrace of her meta-human abilities is one of the most fun aspects of the season, I'm glad her character is being developed in this direction.

He goes out like a true hero, though, and his sacrifice makes for a far more touching send-off than anyone could have predicted for such a goofy character.
