It’s Christmas! Well not yet, but it definitely was Christmas time during the Flash Mid-Season Finale. Beware of Spoilers!
This episode had some major reveals in it and it should have blown me away. Somehow it didn’t. The episode wasn’t very balanced and I enjoyed it a lot less than last week’s crossover titled Flash vs. Arrow (which was hilarious and brilliant, mainly because of Cisco). But let’s dive more into this week. What do I mean by it wasn’t very balanced you may wonder. Well, the Reverse Flash and the Firestorm storyline are huge and interesting things in my opinion, but the focus was more on Barry’s feelings towards Iris. I just wish that wasn’t such a big deal in the show, because while I do like Iris better than Laurel, I just don’t see her with Barry. He has much more chemistry with Caitlin, or is it just me who thinks that? I just keep realising that they have these really cute little moments and I don’t see those with Iris.
Here are some other thoughts about the episode:
- Poor Caitlin! She is one of my favourites of the show (duh!) and I feel really sorry for her. She’s so torn about how to feel about Ronny/Firestorm now that he’s back and clearly not the same person he once was. I definitely hope to see more of him soon. I need to see more of him soon! I find him a really interesting character and I’m interested to see in which direction they’ll take him, because he doesn’t seem like a typical antagonist/villain to me.
- Wells is the Reverse Flash? There were hints that something was definitely up with him, but I did not see that coming. Am I that blind? And it was confirmed that there was another speeder besides the Reverse Flash at the murder sight of Barry’s mum. So, maybe my time travelling theory is right? Barry and Wells both going so fast they go back in time? Who knows.
- Just when I started to like Eddie, he starts a task force meant to catch the Flash. I guess he’s strayed from that plan now, but still … how could he not see that the Flash is a good guy? Oh right, Barry beating him up probably didn’t help, but that was really the only time he didn’t help people. Now Eddie wants to move in with Iris and I am happy for them. I say, why not?
- Speaking of Iris. Barry finally confessed his undying love for her. He didn’t phrase it like that, but can you guess what her answer was? Utter silence! That’s right, she said nothing. I think she may realise she has feelings for him too now, but as I mentioned above, if it were up to me they don’t have to get together.
The promo for the next episode looks interesting. The Reverse Flash taking Caitlin hostage and stuff like that. I’m looking forward to the other half of the season, but as a last thing I just want to say that even after the Flash‘s rocketing success, I still prefer the Arrow a little more. What are your thoughts?
