The theme of fatherhood is given a moving centerstage in an installment that presents a dire dilemma that compels the STAR Lab crew to send The Flash back into its full-throttle super heroics.
With three episodes remaining, this has to be the incident that jump-starts the season's endgame.
When Barry does return from whatever alternate universe/reality the accelerator blast has sent him to, he'll have two sidekicks for the price of one.
If this week's episode of The Flash proved anything, it's that the show can give Arrow a run for its money in the darkness department.
In last night's conclusion the team at STAR Labs reasons that the only way to stop Zoom - who still has Dr. Caitlin Snow chained up at the police station, mind you - is to get Allen his powers back.
Criticism aside, "Rupture" offered all the horror needed to force Barry and his S.T.A.R. Labs team to actually... act.
Not only has our investment in their dynamic dropped considerably, there's also so much going on surrounding the pair that it's difficult to find anything they're dealing with to be all that consequential.
Central City needs The Flash. And, frankly, The Flash needs The Flash, because this isn't much of a superhero show without him.
In a subtle nod to the Flashpoint comic storyline, Barry attempts to regain his speed powers at the behest of Harry, who thinks he's figured out how to perfectly duplicate the experiment that did it the first time.
Tonight's episode was all about getting Barry to a place where he would entertain Harry's stupid crazy idea to create another particle accelerator explosion in an effort to restore Barry's speedster powers.
Having spent the past few minutes perched on the edge of my seat, I'm here to say that was a helluva final act.
Watching Henry, Joe and Harry argue over whether Barry should become The Flash again made it blindingly clear Barry has too many father figures. I say this with much love for all three, but there's too many cooks in this kitchen.
Did Barry just become so fast that he's going to be able to be invisible? Hey, I know only what I read online about the comics, and I don't know what they'd be willing to change for the show, so I'm only spit-balling.
