Barry – “I can’t help but feel like my past has caught up with me.”
These introduction monologues get cornier every week.
The gang, minus Iris of course, meet to discuss Harrison Wells being Reverse Flash. Using his speed Barry gets the “best” pizza on the west coast; talk to me when you can get some NYC pizza Bare. Joe and Cisco will investigate the car accident that killed Dr. Wells’ wife 15 years ago.
Caitlin – “Grief can change a man.”
A logical explanation? Maybe in real life, but in this universe I’ll have none of that, he’s clearly a time traveling vampire. They’re relying on Caitlin to lie for them…I can already see this plan failing. The meeting ends in less than 30 seconds…this could have been covered in one group message.
Eddie – “What should I do?’
Joe – “Just keep being yourself.”
If you get that assignment in a group project, you’re the weak link.
They inserted last week’s ending into this week’s opening…
Barry relives the day and still comes to the killed by hail conclusion…he blew both of his opportunities.
At least the Chief’s coat isn’t ruined, that was always more important than being able to walk.
Caitlin – “He’s your brother.”
Cisco – “Yeah, not by choice.”
Like most brothers then.
Caitlin will go with Cisco to his brother’s birthday party and Barry experiences more time travel shenanigans and clichés.
They flashback to the pilot episode…this is still Season 1 guys, we know what happened.
So it looks like they finally cast the other brother, if a life of crime doesn’t work out for these two I’m sure modeling is always an option.
Thank God they had their seat belts on, that’s how they survived the plane crash.
Honestly I think all bowling alleys have the same art design.
Barry – “This is one of my favorite places in the world.”
That’s kind of depressing.
“I’m guessing bowling is one of the only sports where I can destroy you at.”
Shouldn’t this be the one sport she has a chance in?
I wonder how fast Barry can run with those goofy bowling shoes on. Besides ice, arriving on time, and Iris, I bet running in a bowling alley would be one of his many weaknesses.
A bowling date is like first week dating 101 and Iris loves bowling as much as Barry, but this is the first time she and Eddie have been bowling.
Iris is encroaching on Barry right in front of her boyfriend and Barry’s girlfriend, everyone knows you don’t wipe stuff off people’s faces unless you’re their mother/grandmother/girlfriend.
It took maybe the worst possible circumstances for this car to explode. Barry can get into cars tumbling off a dam in the blink of an eye, but a stationary flipped car is kind of tough…
Dr. Snow – “Tonight was the fastest you’ve ever run.”
I don’t know if I should be impressed or disappointed.
Barry – “I can still get faster, I know I can.”
He always says this, we know he does.
Barry has movie night with Joe and it takes precedent over everything, like it should. Cisco and Snow talk about Ronnie.
Cisco – “I know you said to stop looking for Ronnie so…I didn’t stop looking for Ronnie.”
He doesn’t know how to follow directions, unless it involves locking certain doors in exactly 2 minutes.
Snow – “Ronnie’s gone and I’ve moved on with my life.”
Neither of those things are true.
A motorcycle gang should be the easiest opponent for a guy with SUPER SPEED, but then we wouldn’t have a show.
Barry – “Which way should I go?”
Should I put on pants today? Which seat should I take? Oh I’m sorry Bare, I thought we were asking stupid questions. Heck, he could take a nap and still be able to capture these guys.
Barry maneuvers the King and Queen riders back to the middle road and, even though Barry didn’t tamper with him at all, the Ace rider arrives last. Despite what his helmet says, Ace isn’t the best driver. Looks like the Royal Flush Gang were a couple cards short of a winning hand, stylish helmets though.
The weather looks worse now than it did on Christmas. This episode starts off highlighting how terrifying drone strikes can be. How have we not wiped terrorists off the face of the planet with these things? Also this drone is able to keep up with the 2nd fastest man alive no problem.
Barry runs into some trouble with the drone because Barry has trouble with everything he fights despite his super speed. Dr. Wheels readies himself to save Barry, which would reveal he’s not handicapped, incase Comic Relief accidentally kills Barry during a training session…it’s nice to know he cares, but come on, his life isn’t in danger. Barry grabs the missile in mid air and throws it back at the drone. For a bankrupt company it’s impressive how Comic Relief can churn out all these gadgets. Comic Relief “names” Reverse Flash and
Reverse Flash Dr. Wheels likes the nickname.
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.
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?
