Previously on The Flash, “The Trial of The Flash”
I don’t even know where to begin, y’all. I guess I should start with saying that I started the episode 15 minutes late because I didn’t want to turn off the Damnation finale. By the way, if you weren’t watching USA Network’s Damnation, shame on you. We cover it on the Premium podcast on Patreon and it’s fantastic.
Anyway, once Damnation was done, I fired up The Flash and I wish I hadn’t.
Who cares about Ralph Dibny? Who cares about Ralph Dibny finding his inner hero? Who asked for this? Let me help you out:
Barry is still in jail and making friends in all the wrong places; until he’s rescued from a beatdown by a convict, Big Sir (Bill Goldberg), who owed Henry Allen his life. Barry’s made a friend on the inside and vibrated his hand through the visiting room glass so he and Iris could touch. Yay! I guess.
Meanwhile, the Trickster’s son (Devon Graye)escapes from Iron Heights with the help from his mother, Prank (Corrine Bohrer) who’s just as crazy and murderous as her son and baby daddy. When Ralph flakes on stopping them because, it turns out, he ain’t bout that life, it’s up to Cisco and Caitlin, but they’re promptly captured. After a jailhouse pep talk from Barry, Ralph finds the wind beneath his wings and saves the day. Yay! I guess.
The best parts of the episode were any WestAllen moment, Caitlin as Killer Frost (she’s become so fun to watch), and the reappearance of the mysterious and adorable server from the wedding (Jessica Parker Kennedy). Oh, when we learned Barry doesn’t know how to do hash marks.
But Wait; There’s More
The mysterious server furiously scribbles the symbols Barry drew when he came out of the Speed Force in the premiere. She’s also wicked smart.
