I can’t talk about last week or this week’s episode without revealing some stuff, so spoilers!
Last week had one of the craziest episodes as Mark Mardon, brother to Clyde, came seeking revenge for his brother’s death way back in the pilot, especially gunning for one Detective Joe West (Jesse L. Martin). Dr. Wells was discovered by Cisco and he died for it. Iris (Candice Patton) finally professes her love for Barry (Grant Gustin), as a tsunami barrels towards them, and Mardon renders the Captain a cripple. Barry “supermans” around the tsunami and has his own “Groundhog Day.”
The Flash 1.16 “Rogue Time” review: Great Scott! Barry lasts about 3.2 seconds after Dr. Wells warns him not to change anything in his day, when he starts doing just that. He then proceeds to get in more trouble, while Evil Wells asks his magic computer if the future has changed.
As we also saw in the promo, Cisco is alive again. Yay! I almost cried last week.
Lisa Snart: “Make me something pretty and toxic, like me.” She certainly is. I like Golden Glider much more than I liked Jane Sterling (Mad Men), even after she became a hippie. Her gun has the Midas touch, turning everything it touches into gold. She is fun! She totally handles her own against her big brother. I wish she didn’t string Cisco along though. He needs a girlfriend.
It’s so weird that Dr. Wells helps them or still pretends to when we know all the stuff he did (and does in this episode). It was great how today’s episode had us feeling like we relived the day along with Barry as they intertwined things that were done and said. Someone still dies via Reverse Flash. Is it Cisco or someone else?
Captain Cold and The Flash have a heart to heart at the end of the episode with surprising results!
Wentworth Miller makes me want to add Prison Break to my future binge list. He is so smart, funny, and handsome. I think I can overlook the occasional criminal activity.
