Last week on The Flash, all my dreams came true as Barry and the Barettes did a few musical numbers. Also a Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, and Arrow-ish crossover (latter 2 and The Flash came from Arrow), a villain called the Music Meister (Darren Criss, Glee) trapped Kara Danvers (Melissa Benoist) in a musical dreamworld, mentioning The Flash (Grant Gustin) as he exited. Mon-El and J’onn (Chris Wood, David Harewood) brought her to S.T.A.R. Labs for help. The Music Meister got pinched, but not before he sent Barry down the rabbit hole as well. The rules were they had to move the story (of forbidden mob love), along with performances of some snappy numbers. Here’s where Gustin, Benoist, Carlos Valdes (Cisco), Jeremy Jordan (Winn), Jesse L. Martin (Joe West), Victor Garber (Stein), and John Barrowman (Malcolm Merlyn) got to show off their chops with some awesome original and cover songs. My favorite, “I’m Your Superfriend,” was written by Rachel Bloom (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend – my new guilty pleasure), and was a complete delight, with Benoist and Gustin using comedy and tap to make me smile. Everything worked out – Barry and Iris (Candice Patton) and Mon-El and Kara reconciled and escaped the dreamworld, because the Music Meister wasn’t a villain at all. He did this for love. This episode also showed off Gustin’s funny side.

Last week on The Flash, Savitar kept messing with Wally’s (Keiynan Lonsdale) mind. Julian (Tom Felton) reluctantly went under so Barry (Grant Gustin) could talk to Savitar. Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) confessed she kept a piece of the philosopher’s stone, which turned out to be a good thing. As long as it wasn’t whole, Savitar was trapped in the speed force. Unfortunately, Wally threw the other piece in, freeing Savitar and trapping Wally. Jesse (Violett Beane) turned to HR (Tom Cavanagh) for dad comfort. Barry and Iris (Candice Patton) got engaged, then unengaged.

Last season on The Flash, Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) had another, more deadly speedster nemesis than Reverse Flash – Zoom (Teddy Sears). Zoom came from Earth-2 and began sending metas from his world to kill Barry. He wanted his speed (doesn’t everyone?), and to be the ultimate power. They were joined by Dr. Wells (Tom Cavanagh) from the other Earth because Zoom had kidnapped his daughter. What commenced was a crazy exciting season filled with doppelgängers, vibes, the speed force, and crossovers galore. Barry finally got the girl and a new brother, but lost his dad (John Wesley Shipp) for real. So Barry went back to that fateful night and stopped Reverse Flash from killing his mother.

Last week on The Flash, Barry (Grant Gustin) was lost in the speed force after they tried to recreate the particle accelerator explosion, tasked with catching up with a dark shadow or leave without his powers. The speed force seems to be God, or midichlorians, or the origin of matter, or something omniscient. He was visited by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and… actually, the speed force just dressed up like his family to give him Joe-isms, while his real family tried to get him back through the vibes of Cisco (Carlos Valdes). The final tears came when his loving mom came and read him a childhood story, “The Runaway Dinosaur.” Barry caught the shadow – himself, as Iris (Candice Patton) reached for him through Cisco, and brought him home with his speed.

Spoilers below.
