‘The Flash’ recap – 4×16: “Run, Iris, Run”

The Flash episode “Run, Iris, Run” aired 13 March 2018. Hello everyone. “Run, Iris, Run” was my most anticipated episode of The Flash this season. Iris haters have long tried to argue that she doesn’t actually contribute to the team because she does not have superpowers or badass fighting skills, doesn’t pull any heroics out in […]

‘The Flash’ recap – 4×15: “Enter Flashtime”

The Flash episode “Enter Flashtime” aired 6 March 2018. Since returning from the speedforce, Barry has become faster and more self-righteous. He’s also become more of an ass when he gets stressed. And the DeVoe debacle is getting him really stressed. He pushed Izzy too hard last week and this week, wore Cisco down during […]

‘The Flash’ recap – 4×14 “Subject 9”

The Flash episode “Subject 9” aired 27 February 2018. Really? I’m sure The Flash can come up with something more creative than “Subject 9”. Then again, it took 40 minutes before we named this week’s new meta. The naming powers are not with us this week. Anyway, welcome back! Barry is a free man and […]

‘The Flash’ recap – 4×13 “True Colors”

The Flash episode “True Colors” aired 6 Feb 2018. Welcome back! How are you all holding on after last week’s cliffhanger? All about the disguise Iris brings Cecile to her daily talk with Barry, but Barry isn’t there. Warden – who’s name is Gregory Wolfe – makes up an excuse, but Cecile reads his thoughts […]

‘The Flash’ recap – 4×12: “Honey, I shrunk Team Flash”

The Flash episode “Honey, I shrunk Team Flash” aired 30 January 2017. Does anyone else find it a little odd how we haven’t seen the DeVoes for 2 straight episodes? After’s last week’s detour, The Flash headed back to the highway this week by bringing back the bus metas storyline. Still, it does not feel completely back […]

‘The Flash’ 4×11 recap: “The Elongated Knight Rises”

The Flash episode “The Elongated Knight Rises” aired on January 23, 2018. After last week’s dour courtroom drama, “The Elongated Knight Rises” was a nice, lighthearted detour from the main Thinker plot. While the Flash is out of commission, some random, completely normal guy tries to rob a jewellery store. He holds the employees hostage […]

‘The Flash’ recap: season 4 episode 10, “Trial of the Flash”

The Flash episode “Trial of the Flash” aired 16 January, 2018. Welcome back everyone! It’s been a while. The last time we were here, Clifford “The Thinker” DeVoe switched bodies with telepath Dominic Lance, then killed and planted his old body in Barry’s loft. Barry insists he will not run from the law, nor will […]

‘The Flash’: 5 things we want from season 4 in 2018

Hello Central City! The Flash is back tomorrow! Well, the show at least, not the actual character because Barry is detained and on trial for murder. We all know that the back half of this season will center around proving Barry’s innocence and ultimately taking down Clifford DeVoe, the Thinker. This parallels the plight of Henry […]

‘The Flash’ recap – 4×09: “Don’t Run”

The Flash episode “Don’t Run” aired 5 December 2017. It’s the midseason finale! ‘Tis the season for cliffhangers. The Flash certainly left us with a cliffhanger no one saw coming. In an episode with many twists and turns, “Don’t Run” was a good pre-holiday treat, although not the nicest one. Westallen interrupted…again Poor Barry and Iris. […]

Top 10 crossover interactions from “Crisis on Earth X”

What a week. Four jam-packed hours of action over two days. I’m talking about the Crisis on Earth X crossover, of course. Most people would note that unlike the previous crossovers, Crisis on Earth X was pretty well-blended. For the most part, all four hours of the event felt seamless. This was unlike last year’s Invasion!, where the […]

‘The Flash’ recap – 4×07: “Therefore I am”

The Flash episode “Therefore I am” aired November 21, 2017. The Flash did two great things tonight. It showed good storytelling with the use of flashbacks, and humanised the season’s central villain in a big way. Barry became the villain of the week in a way, with his paranoia over DeVoe, even when his suspicions […]

‘The Flash’ recap – 4×06 “When Harry Met Harry”

The Flash episode “When Harry Met Harry” aired November 14, 2017. The Flash took a step back for humour this week, but that had to happen at some point. This episode was still filled with amazing quips. Harry is only the subplot of “When Harry Met Harry”, but his misadventures this week served up some great […]

‘The Flash’ recap – 4×05: “Girls Night Out”

The Flash episode “Girls Night Out” aired November 7, 2017. Drunk Barry. Bachelor/bachelorette parties. Girl friendship. What could make a better episode of The Flash? Answer: “This house is bitchin'” making a comeback. That line is the real gift that keeps on giving. #feminism In case you didn’t figure it out, this episode is all […]

‘The Flash’ 4×04 – “Elongated Journey into the Night” recap

The Flash episode “Elongated Journey into the Night” aired October 31, 2017. Happy Halloween! I want to be disappointed at the lack of festivities in Central City, but The Flash made it up with some insane humour. Also, is it just me or Barry’s opening speech getting longer and less catchy? Breaching the gap Cisco and […]

What do Barry’s ramblings mean for ‘The Flash’?

When Barry came out of the speedforce, he was a bearded babbling mess. The things he said did not seem to make any sense. However, The Flash has shown that random details – like the average metro bus at the average street corner – do matter. Even if he does not remember, Barry must have […]
