"Untouchable" brings several of this season's plots to a head in a way that's very satisfying and leaves me excited to see what comes next.
"Untouchable" is just the latest offender, an hour that hits the same old beats with thudding familiarity.
Characters are misused, the themes are well-worn, and mostly, it feels like treading water.
Flash has to dig deep and try something he has never fathomed he would have to do... One of the dopest step-up moments in Flash history.
This episode used some lingering loose ends from Flashpoint to good effect, while at the same time hinting that Barry Allen isn't quite done dealing with the fallout of that alternate reality.
The Flash airs on The CW so it's not shocking at all that their bond is taking a romantic angle, but to be fair, this instance feels like it's earned it more than most.
Considering this is a show about people who can run really fast, it's high time we got a race.
Provided a new perspective on superheroes in this world by letting us in on how normal citizens admire what Flash and Kid Flash are doing for their city.
"Untouchable" feels like a definitive return to form. What's more, it opens with some classic Flash imagery: a race.
It was a good, if not great, episode of The Flash that was just about overshadowed immediately by the end tag of Gorilla Grodd.
