Okay guys and gals we had a great episode tonight and it was a really good episode! Does Barry Allen/The Flash (Grant Gustin) die tonight? Will Nora get erased from all existence? These are things and more that we will be talking about in tonight’s review for the episode!
So in this episode we are starting to have a trend on the super people for this season, like its literally father/daughter season for this year on the Flash and the audience is loving it! First we had Barry (Grant Gustin) and Future Nora (Jessica Parker Kennedy), then we had Caitlin/Killer Frost (Danielle Panabaker) and her father Thomas, and now we have Martin/Weather Wizard (Liam McIntyre) and our this weeks villain Joss/Weather Witch (Reina Hardesty) meet up with each other. See what I mean there’s a big trend happening this season and the fans are loving it. This week we found out that Weather Wizard had a daughter long before he started his crime wave and then when he started that job that gave him his powers that night he left his daughter and his girl alone, abandoned them! Well Weather Witch came for revenge upon her father, I know not that father/daughter reunion you all were hoping am I right?
Now as you all know I like going into the comic lore of each character that is brought to the series, now in the comics Weather Witch wasn’t related to Weather Wizard, she was actually a prostitute that was a part of an experiment done by the Penguin in Gotham City to create a new Rogue for the Rogue’s Gallery. When Penguin told Weather Witch to kill Weather Wizard; instead Weather Wizard killed Weather Witch. Yeah not much to the comic story of Weather Witch, but it’s good to see a revamped version of the story for the series though. I mean this revamped version really makes more sense than the comic book version just saying. I mean having Weather Witch as a daughter for Weather Wizard is definitely better because it makes sense why she wants her father dead, instead of just having the character as a prostitute that just wants to kill the guy for no apparent reason.
In the side plot we had Cicada (Chris Klein) origin story revealed in how he became Cicada and why. Apparently Cicada’s sister had died because of a Meta-human attack but the one that survived was his niece Grace (Islie Hirvonen) who he was in charge of taking care of because he’s the only family she’s got. Orland aka Cicada wanted to make the best for Grace’s life but after the enlightenment happened and the satellite came down Grace was forced into a vegetative state in a hospital bed and Cicada was born on that night! But truth be told Grace was a little brat, I mean I understand she lost her mom, she has ways of grieving but come on give your Uncle Orland a chance don’t just start calling him names and calling him a piece of shit. Like that’s not right for a kid to do to family!
But what will happen next week? I mean we almost lost our hero in this episode! But I’ll tell you something next week marks the 100th episode of The Flash it’s gonna be a special episode where we see Savitar, Zoom, even Reverse Flash all in action once again!
