The Flash season 1 finale is here! Has this been a fantastic season or what? Little did I know back in October at NYCC, when surprised with a sneak peek of episode 2, that this would end up being one of my favorite shows of the 2014-2015 television season. Who would have thought that the kid from Glee, would end up an awesome superhero? Not this girl! I was happily surprised as Barry Allen and his team (especially my fave, Cisco), continued to wow me every week with this really fun show. It’s gonna be a long summer without them.

Do not continue on if you have not watched the episode. Definite spoilers!

The Flash
Season 1 Episode 22: “Rogue Air”
Directed by Doug Aarniokoski
Written by Aaron Helbing, Todd Helbing
Starring Grant Gustin, Jesse L. Martin, Danielle Panabaker, Rick Cosnett, Candice Patton, Carlos Valdez, Tom Cavanagh
The CW
Air Date: Tuesday, May 12th, 2015, 8:00pm

Last week, on The Flash “Grodd Lives,” there were movie ape references galore (by Cisco – Carlos Valdes), as Dr. Wells (Tom Cavanagh) sent the meta-gorilla after them (after some luring), to distract from the real plan, getting Eobard Thawne back home. Eddie (Rick Cosnett) acted as plot device, as he and Thawne talked (or didn’t talk) about things to come. He did show Eddie the “Iris West-Allen” thing. He was less clear about the details of HIS actual plans. Grodd used mind control to grab and scare Joe (Jesse L. Martin).

TV Review: The Flash 1.21 “Grodd Lives”

The Flash
Season 1 Episode 21: “Grodd Lives”
Directed by Dermott Downs
Written by Grainne Godfree, Kai Yu Wu
Starring Grant Gustin, Jesse L. Martin, Danielle Panabaker, Rick Cosnett, Candice Patton, Carlos Valdez, Tom Cavanagh
The CW
Air Date: Tuesday, May 5th, 2015, 8:00pm

Last week’s The Flash was exactly what the title said – a trap. Except instead of the team tricking Dr. Wells (Tom Cavanagh) into confessing to Barry’s mom’s murder, Dr. Wells had been playing them the whole time. He had screens set up, with cameras everywhere. The trap involved Cisco (Carlos Valdes) revisiting his alternate reality death experience he’s been dreaming about (Inception Vs. Dreamscape – classic line). There was another Barry (Grant Gustin) flashback to his coma days. A little spark of electricity, then and now, “sparked” Iris’s (Candice Patton) discovery. So having the exact face, build, and mannerisms as the man you lived with your whole life doesn’t give it away, but some static does? Whatever. I’ll forgive you because thank god everyone knows now. Eddie (Rick Cosnett) attempts to propose to Iris, despite Joe (Jesse L. Martin) not giving his blessing, but he is kidnapped by Reverse Flash. So should Joe and Barry send Reverse Flash a thank you card?

It’s the final four, starting with this week’s The Flash 1.20 “The Trap”! But first, a little recap of last week’s crossover episode.

Joe (Jesse L. Martin) and Cisco (Carlos Valdes) took a trip to Starling City, the scene of Harrison Wells (Tom Cavanagh) car accident that was so fatal to his Tess (and to the real him) all those years ago. They enlist Captain Lance (Paul Blackthorne) to help. While there, Cisco gets the thrill of his life when Laurel (Katie Cassidy) reveals all she knows about the hidden identities and reveals to him that she is the Black Canary. “I love you,” Cisco says. We love you too Cisco! He is my favorite character on the show. Cisco helps her with a techie problem, and Lance helps them out too, by not reporting the dead body they found of the real Harrison Wells. Now they have the proof. Joe gives Lance some wise advice on forgiveness.

TV Review: The Flash 1.19 “Who Is Harrison Wells?”

The Flash
Season 1 Episode 19: “Who Is Harrison Wells?”
Directed by Wendey Stanzler
Written by Ray Utarnachitt & Cortney Norris
Starring Grant Gustin, Jesse L. Martin, Danielle Panabaker, Rick Cosnett, Candice Patton, Carlos Valdez, Tom Cavanagh
The CW
Air Date: Tuesday, April 21st, 2015, 8:00pm

It’s time to talk about my favorite show! I hope my other shows don’t get jealous. Before we get to The Flash 1.19 “Who Is Harrison Wells,” let’s recap 1.18 “All Star Team Up.”

Cisco (Carlos Valdes) met his new bestie Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh), as he and Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards), crossed over to Central City to get help with The Atom suit. This was in the midst of the season long Reverse Flash mystery, and the episode long Bug-Eyed Bandit (Emily Kinney), who caused death by robotic bees. Felicity was a shoulder for Barry (Grant Gustin), and gave him some pretty good advice. Joe (Jesse L. Martin) and Barry showed Caitlin and Cisco the Reverse Flash board, and spilled their theories. Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) is in disbelief, but Cisco tells of a dream he had… where Dr. Wells (Tom Cavanagh) killed him.

Make sure to watch the four clips below.
