While "Trajectory" doesn't go the distance to mix things up, it does throw a new speedster into the mix and presents new and exciting questions that will impact the rest of the season.
All in all, "Trajectory" provides a slight but fun storyline that further underscores why Barry is such an amazing hero for Central City.
The Flash returns after its cliffhanger reveal that the man under the Zoom mask bore a familiar face to have Barry face off with yet another villainous speedster.
The cat is out of the bag, and now the hunt for Zoom gets personal.
The Flash deserves better than to be saddled with a recycled season-long storyline this early in its run. And we deserve better than to be forced to think it might do that. Red herrings have their place, but don't try faking us out with false lameness.
The Flash didn't miss a beat as it returned after a month-long absence. This show managed to introduce a compelling new speedster villain while simultaneously playing up the mystery of Zoom even further.
As far as departures from the real stories, conflicts, and significant plots go, "Trajectory" is probably the best that can be hoped for.
Trajectory was a complete dud. There was nothing even remotely compelling about her. She was sort of a waste of a first female speedster.
Not bad, not great, but somewhere in between, this week's episode of The Flash reminds me of why I love the show but doesn't offer anything as thrilling as the past few episodes.
Trajectory is a great return to form after The Flash's month-long hiatus, and it sets us up for the final third of the season with many issues resolved and new questions asked.
Though the mild-mannered scientist checks out when quizzed by Joe and Caitlin, it immediately becomes clear that she is the speedster, taunted by a V9-addicted inner demon.
"Villains gonna vill." Best The Flash line ever? Best The Flash line ever.
Although it wasn't a major game changer, this was an important and entertaining episode to further unravel the mystery of Zoom.
