A Flash adventure that brings new meaning to the phrase "dashing through the snow."

Not only did the show fritter away the backstory of one of its newest characters, but it actually added another member to a cast already groaning under the weight of too many parallel plotlines.

The return of Mark Hamill's Trickster alone was a welcome holiday treat, but seeing him paired up with Weather Wizard was even better.

Nothing says Christmas like a couple of murderous Rogues out to get you and family secrets that can potentially tear you apart.

If you didn't think Zoom was diabolical before, this episode allows him to dangle Harry's daughter in front of his eyes before snatching her away again, forcing Harry's hand.

One thing is for certain: Fans of Iris West this week got perhaps the biggest gift of all, as after instances of a scene here and there not making it to broadcast, Miss West was well accounted for.

Heavy and meaningful silence reveals what isn't said is more important than what is.

All in all, Episode 9 was pretty entertaining, but didn't leave viewers hanging or worried over the fate of their favorite characters over the holiday season. Honestly, that's kind of nice.

Despite its fun moments, the episode does a major disservice to the family at the heart of the show - the Wests.

The Flash proved that even the superpowered and superpowered-adjacent can't escape the holidays unscathed by family and friend drama. There just happens to also be some life-or-death drama surrounding it during Running to Stand Still.

A wheel-spinning episode that, despite a couple of developments, really didn't feel fully formed.

The Flash has been off to a great start this season, proving again and again that they can accomplish more than fans would have initially wished for, and I can't wait for the show to return.

Running to Stand Still has so much going on, and manages to balance each thread with meaning and humor.

At its heart, though, this is the same show that came as such a pleasant surprise from the day it debuted, with at least half of the second season episodes to this point ranking with the best the show has to offer.

For longtime fans, the debut of one of the more popular characters in the Flash mythos was enough incentive to start counting down until it returns from the holiday break.
