The Flash

During the season premiere, Caitlin says, supposedly threateningly, "don't make me frosty; you wouldn't like me when I'm frosty."

I think we can call time of death.

This'll be my last season. The premiere to season four wasn't without its fun and charm, but when push comes to shove they've just given up on gripping storytelling wholesale for the sake of the status quo. It's the fourth season and I still really don't give a shit about Caitlin Snow beyond what Danielle Panabaker brings to the role, which often isn't much. And Cisco's back in full-on deus ex scientist mode, I'm beginning to think the Flash would've been a stronger series if those two weren't there to begin with. They aren't even Flash characters, and the West family is much more engaging than the season one cast's hi-jinks.

The death of a character or the death of a series? Ice puns have been known to kill previous DC adaptations.

After a bunch of better than average episodes, it's good to be reminded that this show can find new ways to drop the ball. The Caitlyn side of the episode was good but the Barry side was blah. My main complaint came down to that cliffhanger. There are about a million holes in Devoe's entire plan to frame Barry. 1) Barry has no blood splatter on himself. 2) The guy was in a wheelchair. It's nowhere to be seen. So, did Barry lift the guy through the apartment building to his apartment to kill him? 3) An apartment that nice has cameras in the lobby. A good lawyer would subpoena for them right away. 4) Iris can testify they only received one knife as a gift. True, it might look like hearsay but it casts doubt. 5) There are no witnesses to the murder. The CCPD have no probably cause to arrest Barry outside of the restraining order and even then, why would Barry have set off his own alarm for the apartment. There's more than enough there to argue that the body was planted there.

So, yeah, an average episode that was brought lower by a plot twist that could be solved by watching a rerun of Law and Order.

I don't know how much more I can take of this show. Why is Iris the leader of Team Flash? Because they don't know what else to do with her? Barry couldn't phase through the field, until he could. Hey, actor getting probably the biggest role of your career, fuck you, we replaced you with a young handsome black guy halfway through your season. Dibney is the best reason to watch the show now and he barely does anything.

Saw a lot of hype around the most recent episode, "Enter Flashtime," and damn that was good! It made me want to jump back in.

Question about something Jay said at the end:

Spoiler

He mentioned mentoring a new Flash on Earth-3, a female speedster. Who could this be? XS maybe?
