Critic Reviews for License to Elongate

Thankfully, though, the darkness and gloom temporarily lifts in tonight's exceedingly fun outing, which was directed by Danielle Panabaker.

It's not easy to pull off a wacky romp when your main character is facing death in a few short weeks, but The Flash gives it a shot with "License To Elongate."

The capture of Barry and Ralph was inevitable, but the villain having a laser beam seemed extreme.

Was "License to Elongate" the best episode ever? Nope, definitely not. But in a season that seems primarily focused on character-driven stories (even as the threat of "Crisis" looms), it does exactly what it needs to do.

By the time Crisis on Infinite Earths is over, I won't remember any of the things that annoyed me about this episode, but I'll remember the way that final scene made me feel.
