October 7, 2015 – The Man Who Saved Central City: Welcome back to the Flash, Speedsters! Season two is finally here and I can’t be more excited. No, really, I can’t. I tried but realized I needed to focus so I could watch the episode and recap it for you. CONTINUE READING…

October 21, 2015 – Family of Rogues: Sometimes it’s easy to forget that Barry has a real job and this episode does take a moment to remind us of this. We open with Barry working in his lab, but this is interrupted by a call from Iris. CONTINUE READING…

Image Credit: The CWOctober 28, 2015 – The Fury of Firestorm: So two years ago there is this high school football player named Jefferson Jackson, aka Jax, who is celebrating the game-winning touchdown out on the field with his team. CONTINUE READING…

Image Credit: CWNovember 4, 2015 – The Darkness and The Light: Earth-2, eight months ago. Harrison Wells (the real one for his world) is holding a press conference to talk about STAR Labs’ commitment to helping save the world from metahuman bad guys. CONTINUE READING…

Image Credit: The CWNovember 11, 2015 – Enter Zoom: This week we finally get to truly encounter Zoom so if you haven’t seen last night’s episode this is your call to step away from the recap. If spoilers don’t scare you, hold on to your hat because here we go. CONTINUE READING…

November 18, 2015 – Gorilla Warfare: Last week was a rough one for us, Flash fans. I don’t know about you but I’m still recovering. However, last night’s episode was pretty great because it included one of my all-time favorite characters, Gorilla Grodd. CONTINUE READING…

December 2, 2015 – Legends of Today: It’s the best time of the Flash season, Flash Fans! It’s Flash/Arrow crossover time! Last night we got the first installment (tonight is the second half over on Arrow and yes, I’ll have a recap for that on Thursday)… CONTINUE READING…

December 3, 2015 – Legends of Yesterday (Arrow): Last night’s episode more or less ties the events of “Legends of Today” into a neat bow and sets up for the January 21st premiere of Legends of Tomorrow. However where Tuesday’s episode of The Flash was largely… CONTINUE READING…

December 9, 2015 – Running to Stand Still: Last night was the midseason finale for The Flash so you know there was a healthy mix of resolving some loose ends as well as giving us just enough to tantalize us for after the holidays. CONTINUE READING…

January 20, 2016 – Potential Energy: Welcome back from the mid-season break! When we last saw our heroes, Barry was happy in a relationship, while Harry was pledging to help Zoom achieve his goal of destroying The Flash. CONTINUE READING…

January 27, 2016 – The Reverse Flash Returns: As the episode opens with our hero narrating, Barry talks about the nature of running and how it plays out in his life: running to avoid things. While running, Harry and Cisco are irritating each other in the lab with Harry being demanding about what Barry needs to do and Cisco pushing his buttons. CONTINUE READING…

February 3, 2016 – Fast Lane: One of the things I love most about The Flash is that the show never loses sight of its emotional center. Yes, it’s a show about super humans and some extravagant, questionable science, but underneath the spectacular is a beating heart. CONTINUE READING…

February 10, 2016 – Welcome to Earth-2: This week the team heads off to Earth-2 to stop Zoom and rescue Jesse. It’s an action-packed episode with a lot of great Easter eggs for comics fans, but as always this recap contains spoilers. CONTINUE READING…

February 17, 2016 – Escape from Earth-2: Last night’s episode picks up from last week’s. There are spoilers—abandon now if you hate spoilers. Anyway, Zoom has Barry and now he is hunting Harry, spreading his demand that citizens “bring him Wells” all over the city. CONTINUE READING…

February 24, 2016 – King Shark: So last week Jay died and that is exactly where we pick up. Caitlin, despite having just witnessed Zoom shoving his hand through Jay’s chest, is totally in denial. One can’t blame her. This is the second person that she’s lost that she loved. CONTINUE READING…

March 9, 2016 – *The Flashback Special Edition* – Who is the Masked Man?The Flash is a show that does an incredible job of keeping viewers guessing and building suspense. This season, one of the questions the show has given viewers to ponder is who is the man in the mask that Zoom is keeping prisoner? CONTINUE READING…

March 23, 2016 – Trajectory: Welcome back from the break Flash fans! I don’t know about you, but I’ve been anxious to find out what exactly is going on with the whole Zoom appearing to be Jay situation. And what about that girl speedster? CONTINUE READING…

March 30, 2016 – Flash Back: This week’s episode opens with Barry speed-reading and indulging in some guilt. He blames himself for trusting Jay now that the team is aware Jay is Zoom. Barry equates this to his trust failure with Dr. Wells-Thawne, catapulting Barry to take the matter of improving his speed into his own hands. CONTINUE READING…

April 20, 2016 – Versus Zoom: Last night, The Flash returned after a short break and we finally got to see Barry and Zoom/Jay face off under honest terms.  I don’t know about you, but I was so looking forward to this episode and didn’t want a single moment spoiled for me, so consider this your spoiler alert. CONTINUE READING…

April 27, 2016 – Back to Normal: Last week we watched Barry deal with every speedster’s worst nightmare: he gave up his speed. Barry’s sacrifice was not in vain as he gave up his speed to save Wally, but it left our favorite hero powerless and ordinary. CONTINUE READING…

May 4, 2016 – Rupture: Welcome back! Last week we looked on in horror as Zoom decided to take over Earth-1 with Caitlin unwillingly by his side. This week, well, I’m still not entirely certain what went down last night but we definitely get to see just how fearsome Zoom is. CONTINUE READING…

May 11, 2016 – The Runaway Dinosaur: I don’t know about you, but I’ve been waiting for this episode since it was announced that Kevin Smith was going to direct. Last night my patience was rewarded, not just by Smith’s guest direction but by an episode with a punch right to the feels. CONTINUE READING…

May 18, 2016 – Invincible: Last night was the penultimate episode of this season’s The Flash. Coming off of last week’s restoration of Barry’s powers, this episode not only sets up next week’s finale but puts Team Flash back together at last. CONTINUE READING…

May 25, 2016 – The Race of His Life: Last night Barry had the ultimate face-off with Zoom in the season two finale. There really is no witty way to introduce this, so for the record there will be a lot of spoilers in this recap as well as a bit of speculation for season three. CONTINUE READING…
