WARNING! MAJOR SPOILERS for The Flash
With the Firestorm storyline slowly progressing over the past few episodes, it was high time that we got a story focusing on the character, and with the title The Nuclear Man, being pretty heavily connected with the character (In fact, the most recent Firestorm comic was entitled The Fury of Firestorm: Nuclear Men), it was great to see that this episode mostly didn’t disappoint, splitting time between yet more character development and the answer to that mystery question, just who is Firestorm? Yes, it may not be the most action-packed episode on the whole scheme of things, but still, there was plenty of awesome stuff going on here that made it a mostly successful one.
After [The Flash](series:1068303) spent weeks building up the mystery of Ronnie Raymond (Robbie Amell, who, in case you haven’t realized yet, is the cousin of Arrow actor Stephen Amell), we finally got the answer here as to just who Firestorm really was. Yes, he may look like Ronnie on the surface, but his mind and body was that of Professor Stein. This was an interesting revelation that will be fun to watch develop going forward, and it was good to see Ronnie/Stein interacting with the main cast at their S.T.A.R. Labs HQ, even if he may not have been Ronnie himself. Whilst Robbie Amell still has a bit to work with regarding his acting here, he does enough to make it seem just about believable, with the ending scene between him and Caitlin being a particular standout.
