In a comic it's fine, on a tv show token is right, it tends to get grating.

I had assumed the girl was a "good" guy, but was I the only one that thought that last comment was super ominous?

Yeh, that was weird. But maybe they were just really trying to smack people over the head with "hey this girl is up to something" as if we didn't realize that already. Subtle, the CW is not.

This last episode was pretty good but the entire premise just further illustrates how ridiculous it is that Barry would have any trouble defeating villains that aren't speedsters themselves. If he can move and perceive the world this fast, then he could KO pretty much anyone before they even realize he was coming. Not to mention that he could solve most of Oliver's problems single-handedly in his lunch break.
Of course that doesn't even compare to Supergirl, who is supposed to be just as fast but keeps forgeting that she is. With her speed and a ton of other powers on top of that, she should be unstopable and most of her "problems" should be minor nuisances at best.

It wasn't even the line itself for me, it was the way it was delivered. She could have said it in a more upbeat way (since she seems to be super cheerful) and gotten the same point across.

Flash has been pretty meh all year but that scene with Devoe in the hallway was pretty tight!

The Flash may have the shallowest gulfs between its peaks & valleys this season. It doesn’t reach the heights of Legends of Tomorrow’s best episodes, but it also doesn’t make me scream waves of obscenities at my TV like Arrow

That might be the most accurate description of the Flash I've ever seen.

The Flash’s fifth season starts off on the right foot.
The coroner’s alias, Cameron Mahkent, is the real name of The Icicle. So maybe Killer Frost’s dad is another icy foe?
After wasting many potential recurring foes last season, I’m wary about Cicada killing what metacrooks remain. Don’t you dare hurt Rainbow Raider!

This episode embodied a lot of what I loved in the first season of the Flash. It was a lot of fun while having serious beats that had some actual depth to them.

Unlike previous seasons, this one started immediately after last finale. So when was the time-skip for events to catch up to the present?

I'm starting to get really tired of the episodic repetitiveness of "XS is being cold/secretive/evasive towards one of the parents... let's try a heart to heart talk... we're cool now". If they want to do that, it would work better to just focus on a couple of issues and make them last a bit longer.

Okay, I'm confused. Who is that at the end supposed to be? All the actual Wells' that we've seen so far have been more or less good guys. His past/our future Thawne shouldn't be wearing Wells' face yet. And he was removed from the timeline anyway. Also, why would a prisoner be given access to his Gideon unit?

Thawne had the Wells face again during the Earth-X event.

The Flash really overthinks how to vanquish his supervillains.

This finale was superior to last year's! Next season they need to upgrade Brie Larvan to Queen Bee!

Flash can be really up and down. I definitely liked the finale, but one moment really highlighted why in my mind Flash will always be the superior show to Arrow.

On Arrow: "I'm a vigilante."
"WHAT!? YOUVE BEEN LEADING A DOUBLE LIFE!? I HATE YOU! ILL NEVER FORGIVE YOU!"

On Flash: "I'm a metahuman."
"Oh that's really cool! I respect your choice to tell me that in your own time."

That was a good scene that further undercut Cisco's decision to give up his incredibly useful powers.

It’s about time they played Queen’s Flash Gordon themesong! That perfect needledrop completely validates the scene’s ludicrous physics! I’ll give it the edge over Supergirl’s black hole climax (Did they coordinate this?) because it was actually woven into the plot.
I’m most intrigued by the impostor Godspeeds only speaking in modem noises.
