Critic Reviews for The Last Temptation of Barry Allen, Pt. 2

The arrogance of the scientific mind is certainly nothing new on The Flash, but Bloodwork did bring an element of horror to the proceedings that felt like something different. Eight episodes is just about right, I think.

The first part of The Flash's midseason finale, which aired last week, was the heavy emotional hour... Part 2" is all about the action, but the heart doesn't get lost amid all the scares, Bloodwork zombies, and CGI fights.

However Crisis turns out, it can't be stated enough how expertly the writing team has built up to the biggest crossover in the Arrowverse.

The urgency of his rampage made for a thrilling edge-of-seat adventure that successfully managed to set the stage for Crisis On Infinite Earths.

It felt bogged down by too much detail on unnecessary story points before bringing it back to pure, raw family emotion that this show has a bullseye on.

Oh, well. Even with this slightly messy resolution the Bloodwork arc has generally been more satisfying than a lot of the show's previous Big Bads - Looking at you, Cicada(s) - so I'm willing to call it an improvement and move on.

It would be interesting to see Cecile's powers grow and whether her daughter will inherit anything.

I'll be honest: The Ramsey Rosso/Bloodwork storyline hasn't engaged me as much as the writers of The Flash may have hoped.

It was all too neat, and supported by entirely too much expository technobabble (yes, even by this show's standards) to really hold up. It also featured perhaps the single worst example of Caitlin/Frost talking to themselves.
