“Flash of Two Worlds” Review

I hyped myself too much cause “Man Who Saved Central City” was an underwhelming season premiere same for IZombie which I’ve enjoyed previous. Wentworth Miller (Captain Cold) hammed it up, Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) mop about Ronnie Raymond’s “death” for the majority of the epsiode leaving Team Flash to hog the spotlight (Smallville deja vu). Cliffhanger with The Singularity resolved quickly. This alternate universe can’t keep going without Eobard Thawne existing. John Wesley Shipp leaving irrated me especially on Henry’s flimsy speech which goes against what he said in finale.

I’m currently reading DC’s Library featuring Barry and Jay Garrick’s adventures collected while writing this. Barry meets Jay when he comes out of retirement to take on Fiddler, Thinker, and Shade as opposed to in his prime while second year as Crimson Comet. Teddy Sears great addition to the cast portraying Jay’s nobility and optimism in-contrast to everybody else. He’ll serve as a true mentor for Barry unlike his false idol. The ability to throw lighting bolts something Captain Marvel would do.

Zoom voiced by Tony Todd (Candyman) more Death Flash then another Reverse. It’s probably Stock Boyfriend back-from-the-dead corrupted by Speed Force energy instead of Colbalt Blue.

At least Patty Spivot (Shantel VanSanten) earned her position on Joe West’s vacant Anti-Metahuman task force unlike his daughter who was handed a Picture News job without much credentials. Patty could possibly 52 universe where they’re already an item causing annoying love-triangle-melodrama.

Unfornately, Barry’s first kill with this new move very jarring. You’d think Jesse L. Martin’s character would tell his surgent-son about Iron Heights offically able to contain Metahumans. While it’s understandable why he has trust-issues, still got absurd towards imprisioning Jay after calling them out on their paranoia. Barry’s bad attutide got obnoxious halfway through similar to how Clark (Tom Welling) distrusted every future ally he encountered.

Catlin (Danielle Panabaker) having hots for Jay isn’t suprising despite Jay already has someone special named Joan Matthews. Iris still dumb cause Barry didn’t defeat Eobard. He kicked his ass since he’s still a rookie in his second year under-the-name Scarlet Speedster.

Series starting to lose-focus on Fastest Man Alive by plugging other heroes to-be-featured in upcoming Non-Justice League (Legends of Tomorrow) shown in this year’s reel using Eddie Slick aka Sand Demon (Kett Turton) being another Firestorm villain for them to fight.

Despite things that peeved me, this should’ve been opener. Good start to assembling Flash Family. Keiynan Lonsdale as Wally West and Jesse Quick (Violett Beane), daughter to Johnny Chambers/Quick (Golden Age) speaks a formula (3x29YZ4A) to access his speed still to come. Martin Stein (Victor Garber) collapsing been separate from Ronny (Robbie Amell) for so long would’ve happened sooner.

Rating: 7 1/2

Tom Cavanagh returning as Harrsion Wells means this Earth-2 version is evil unlike in this world where he was good before Thawne (Matt Letscher) took his face.
