Just a quick review for "The Flash" latest episode, "Power Outage" where outrageous villains are having their own scenes with the people in Central City. Two villains at the same time, huh.
I liked the scene where Barry lost his powers then struggles to build himself up again but keep questioning what if his powers won't come back again. Well, obviously it wasn't the end of the series yet. So, Barry can restore it. And it did happen at nearly end of the episode. Thanks to Mr. Harrison Wells for quite sacrificing himself. We all knew he has his known agenda with our Flash but Barry obviously don't know that yet. Ouch.
So, Barry began to love his powers compared to other heroes who took weeks or even months before they accept the fact that they have this unique supernatural powers. Well, Flash was different from them. I guess, I was driven by his question what if he end up being a nerdy, boring Barry Allen again. The fear of losing his powers gave him a chance to experience the feeling of emptiness--a part of him was gone. Yeah, it is a good fact that once you feel you're the strongest, that's when you fall. Glad, that he got his powers back and the first word came out from his mouth, was "Iris". I think WestAlllen shippers were doing the fist pumping move after hearing that. Well, yeah.
The S.T.A.R. labs team were on their move on restoring Barry's speed. Girder who sacrificed himself and be a buff distraction to help Barry has just died in front him. But I liked that little bond that they had. Tony had also expressed his soft spot for Barry. But so sad, it ended like that. I also liked the genuine bond between Caitlin Snow and Barry Allen. This episode helped them know more about themselves and how they made good conversations with each other. And I find these two might be good siblings in the name of Science. I would also like to include Cisco here. He is also one of my favorite characters in the series. I think these three might develop interesting outputs in more upcoming episodes. They might create great-siblings-relationship here, no doubt. However, I'm not forgetting the fact that Caitlin will be The Killer Frost. Maybe we'll see that soon. Let's just enjoy the bond that these three have for now.
On the other hand, I also liked the split approach of the scenes between Clock King and Blackout (called Farooq as many called him that). They made a quick break just fine. I guess, Clock King picked the wrong person wherein Iris got to save herself. Joe must be proud of her. I should probably use this line, "A girl's gotta be her own hero every now and again", the now-famous-Iris-West line. Honestly speaking, Iris is becoming an interesting brave and smart character here. Just don't forget what you're doing whenever [The Flash](series:1068303) is coming right in front of you--especially the coffee.
Since the two villains came up simultaneously in this season, the mystery of Dr. Harrison Wells is still number one on my list. I keep thinking who this guy is. But I think there's a lot more he knows about The Flash since he was able to see the future. Will it be a bad agenda? or good? Or is he The Reverse Flash like most of the viewers say? Honestly, I'm clueless. I keep guessing if he was also a victim of the particle accelerator explosion then he got his power to see the future. Or maybe he also want to see The Reverse Flash who possibly killed his wife so as to Barry's mother and witness how The Flash would react on it and fight him--that maybe the reason why he doesn't want the future to be interrupted. He wants to see the two in the scene. Maybe he wants to fight back for his wife or moreover, he's interested to The Reverse Flash's capabilities. I don't know, I'll just wait for more new episodes to come. Wells is becoming more interesting character in the series. I'll just maybe keep guessing until the truth about his character reveals.
Who do you think Dr. Wells is? Is he The Reverse Flash or just a Mad Scientist/Director of S.T.A.R. Labs?
