That's right guys and gals The Flash is back after about a month break which means I'm back with my weekly reviews for both The Flash and Arrow. If you want to see my opinions on the last handful of episodes go ahead and check out my Moviepilot Profile to catch up.
Here's my full Video Review on the episode:
Here are my Top 5 Moments from season 1 episode 15 "Out of Time".
5. Villain of the Week
Let's start with the basics before we get to the HEAVY and EMOTIONAL stuff. Ease into it? So this villain of the week was another meta-human with intense weather controlling abilities. The acting, the powers, the effects were all totally fine don't get me wrong.
The problem is that this episode had a ton of moments that were so memorable it leaves villains like the "Weather Wizard" a bit forgettable.
4. Barry-Iris-Linda-Eddie Love Quadrangle
I've talked about how I think the love stories on this show are a bit weak because Iris as a character feels like that's her sole purpose on the show. This episode things heat up as both Eddie and Linda get pissed that Barry and Iris are so flirty with one another.
Iris also decides that she loves Barry? I don't know but that felt rushed and forced. I have a feeling Iris and Barry won't REALLY end up together until the season finale or perhaps next season.
3. Barry tells Iris he's The Flash
We all knew it would eventually happen but I didn't think it would happen so soon. Besides Eddie, Iris seemed to be the only one who had no idea Barry was The Flash. I'm curious to see how she actually takes it besides shock.
Will she totally accept it and love him more? Or will she reject the idea of him putting himself in that kind of danger?
2. Cisco... is... dead!?!?!?!?!?
After a couple weeks of suspicion, Cisco puts the clues together to find out that Harrison Wells may in fact be the Reverse Flash who killed Barry's mother. Before he can do anything about it Wells shows up. He admits to murdering Barry's mom in the process of trying to kill a young Barry.
This scene was truly touching because Cisco was pleading for his life while also having is soul crushed. Wells was like a father to him and Wells even admitted, Cisco was like a son to him. Then BOOM Wells uses his speed powers to stab him in the heart. Jesus Christ, I did not see that coming at all. I really really really hope Cisco isn't dead because he was only with us for 15 episodes.
1. Barry Time Travels!
When the Weather Wizard causes a huge tidal wave to head towards Central City, Barry has to run back and forth so fast he could stop the wave. Little did he know he would run SO fast he would TIME TRAVEL AHHHHHH! I love that this show is introducing time travel so soon.
Barry ends up about a day or so back in time? This opens up a whole can of worms because that means Barry could stop Weather Wizard, not tell Iris he is the Flash and most importantly SAVE CISCO FROM DYING. What is going to happen? I have no idea but I cannot wait for episode 16 to come any faster. Pun intended!
