Sometimes, the only person you can trust is yourself.

The Flash ended its first season with a bang. The entire season overall has been excellent. The tone, the acting, the emotional ride, and the character development were all top notch. Grant Gustin gives a mind-blowing performance as a young Barry Allen, being that his mother was killed by Reverse Flash and his father was sent to prison for it, forcing Barry to live with Joe West and Iris West. When the particle accelerator at S.T.A.R. Labs explodes at the beginning of the season, this sets up Barry becoming The Flash, in order to stop other metahumans from causing destruction and mayhem. Tom Cavanagh plays Harrison Wells and for a while, it seems like he is the good guy and wants to help Barry become faster as The Flash, but in reality, we learn that Harrison Wells has been dead for some time and Eobard Thawne has taken his body likeness as his own in order to create The Flash sooner than expected, so he can go back to his time, since killing Barry's mother in the past timeline caused him to lose his powers from the Speedforce and he was forced to live in the past. Watching the relationships between Barry and Joe, Barry and Harrison, and even Barry and his father, Henry, have all been excellent and even brought tears to my eyes from time to time. The supporting cast of Danielle Panabaker, Carlos Valdez, Candice Patton, and even Rick Cosnett do a great job of furthering Barry's development as both himself and as The Flash as each one of them bring an element of humor, heart, and wisdom. Although a few episodes weren't as great as others, the season as a whole was done very well, especially at the end when Future Barry signals Present Barry to not save his mother, something that Present Barry has been trying to accomplish all season long. That scene alone between Barry and his mother has made this entire season worth watching.

The Flash Season 1 gets a 9/10.
