All of Barry’s training was tested this week on “The Flash” when he encountered a meta-human with the power to teleport and a selfish agenda. Meanwhile, Cisco runs into trouble while investigating what happened to Ronnie and Caitlin deals with her lack of social life by doing karaoke.
“Guilty” felt like an episode that was meant to be a set-up for bigger things to come. We got some character development for Ted Grant, confirmation that Laurel could actually make a believable Black Canary and the introduction of a villain that can’t possibly translate well to TV. Then again, I didn’t think Laurel could pull off Sara’s Black Canary costume, but the Internet proved me wrong on that one:
After this week, it’s apparent that “The Flash” isn’t losing steam anytime soon and the writers are just getting started with slowly unraveling all of the mysteries that have already been introduced. This week we were introduced to a new meta-human, Bette, who wasn’t the episode’s central villain but the target of a regular old bad guy with some human flaws. We were also given another preview of who I’m assuming is going to become a major player in the future, and there was some more (pretty boring) drama between Barry and Iris.
This week’s episode of “The Flash” finally answered our burning questions about the night the particle accelerator exploded. Well, some of them. Mostly it gave us even more questions, but it was still really interesting to see through flashbacks exactly what happened that night and who was really behind the explosion that changed everything for our main characters.
