Trivia

When Harry was talking to his doppelgängers, a doppelgänger of him interrupted and said, "I am Wells the Grey", an obvious reference to Gandalf from the Lord of the Rings. See more »

Still a Lack of Direction
14 November 2017 | by ThomasDrufkeSee all my reviews

So, The Flash is one hundred percent back to the laid back goofy show it was in season 1. Whether that's ultimately the right direction or not remains to be seen, but there's undoubtedly a change in tone from last season to where we're at now. However, the tone isn't necessarily the problem with the show, it's simply the fact that the writing has provided zero direction thus far. And really, you can say the same about all 3 other CW superhero shows. I feel like at this time last year, we pretty much knew the direction and overall arc the seasons were going, but that's not the case at all here.

Perhaps, the lack of direction is almost being played as a neat misdirection for most of the shows. Like we're waiting for the shows to do something insane and set the season(s) on fire with particular character choices. If I'm being honest, I don't think that's the case at all. It's more likely that the writers to this point don't actually know the direction they are taking each show and are taking their time. In any case, tonight's episode of The Flash lacked substance. I enjoyed Ralph Dibny's hints towards taking a smarter and more cognizant approach to being a superhero, but even that subplot felt awkward and out of nowhere.

The title of the episode is in reference to the multiple versions of Harrison Wells that appear, but rather than being a pleasantry like almost every Tom Cavanagh scene typically does, it felt like a re-hash of last season where the team needs to find a new Wells and they go through the different Earth's versions. That whole thing was more than a letdown.

And the villain of the week? I mean I would rather not comment. You're telling me we have a mix between a horrible version of Vixen's powers meets the stupidity of The Dodger's crimes (from Arrow season 1)? I was very bored by all of this. That is, until we got to the final scene of the episode where The Thinker (Clifford Devoe) looks like a normal human being who is clearly conning all of Team Flash. For once, he seemed like a relatable villain who doesn't look like a horrendous one-off Star Trek villain from the 90's. Those final shots seemed promising. Now it all comes down to execution.

6.7/10
