There’s no monologue voiceover in the beginning and instead we see a ton of Christmas lights, so many lights it almost feels like the writers were forced to shove this Christmas aspect into the finale. Flash and Reverse Flash run by some Christmas lights at super speed and they turn off. Okay. Santa is on Barry’s side, not because he’s been a good boy all 3 months of the year he’s been awake, but because he likes Barry’s costume better.
I’ve never watched Arrow and I don’t plan on watching the series anytime soon, but I did enjoy this episode. Here’s a recap from someone who has no idea what they’re talking about.
So there’s a Red Arrow? Okay, well he’s in position. Other Comic Relief character is also in position. So the villain for this episode planted tripwire bombs in his suburban home in case of intruders. Seems a bit excessive and Oliver can look right through the window boards and see the whole set up. Not smart.
I just want to say I don’t watch Arrow or plan to watch it anytime soon, but I will recap the Arrow and Flash crossovers.
The Flash runs through the city acting as Cupid and painting houses instead of acting as a superhero. I think doing stuff like this would be a lot more useful if there weren’t a steady supply of metahumans coming into town. Doing cute hero stuff like this is why I like the Flash though.
That’s the face of someone in the friend zone. I don’t think about how my friends came into my life, but I’m pretty sure it’s just because they were nearby. All my friends are from the schools I went to, now that I’m out of school, how do I make new friends?!
I guess they actually drink in this show, but Barry can’t get drunk. There are some positives though, he doesn’t have to worry about drunk driving, drunk texting, hangovers, and he still has SUPER SPEED. Maybe he can simulate being drunk by spinning around at super speed?
Going Rogue is a great title and a nod to the villain Captain Cold, the leader of the villainous organization the Rogues.
“What does the fastest man alive do on his day off?”
But crime never sleeps Barry! And probably the same thing everyone else does, relax.
Barry – “There are some things you can’t outrun, some things always manage to catch up to you.”
I’m guessing he means metaphorically.
Barry and Iris went on a movie “date.” If there’s a zombie scale then the Walking Dead is on the bottom of that scale. What a terrible show. It doesn’t even refer to zombies as zombies.
Iris is more sexist than Barry about the gender of the “Streak.” How do they even know this is a human? No alien or robot guesses? Iris says she’s “really intuitive about this kind of stuff…” this kind of stuff being knowing the gender of things.
352 MPH is a slow day for him. 761 MPH is the speed of sound. Just putting that out there. The fire trucks are two minutes out from the burning building and apparently they can’t make it in time, if only someone could get there faster!
It’s unfortunate those fireman suits Comic Relief made for them will go to waste.
Barry over shot the burning building by 6 blocks…can he…can he, like, see when he’s running?
I want to start by saying I don’t watch the Arrow, but I do know some things about the Flash; several years ago I wanted to write a Flash screenplay, but then Iron Man came out and started the superhero movie revolution and stole all my ideas. Plus I’m a terrible writer with an even worse attention span so nothing ever came from it. Anyway let’s start this Flash Recap, a show I thought looked surprisingly promising. You can watch it here.
Barry – “My name is Barry Allen and I am the fastest man alive.”
Were there any dead people that were faster than him? Is the alive part really necessary?
