Quote:Wells then shows them a theory he has, that she can only teleport if she can see where she is going.
Quote:Barry then gets a call that his dad was stabbed in prison and goes to see him with Joe. Barry's dad gave him the intel that led to the raid that led to the arrest of Marcus, the main criminal and the wounding of Clay.
Barry and his dad have some words and he then asks who did this to him, it as a criminal named Julius. Julius then gets a visit from a very angry FLASH who zips him out of the prison and demands information or he will be caught escaping. He gives him the info and then leaves him to be captured and get the extra 5 years.

Quote:Episode ends with two workers checking power lines underground, they hear a noise and then see the word GRODD written on the walls! Grodd then attacks them and the episode ends.
Quote:Overall a nice episode, we get more data on Ronnie and Professor Stein and that they are merged into one. Barry and Caitlin may have a romance forming, Barry goes on a date with Linda, another metahuman captured even as Piper is back on the loose, and while it is not directly stated, it seems that Henry Allen (John Wesley Shipp) has connected the dots and done the math and knows Barry is the Flash.
Quote:Again, it is not directly stated that he knows, but it is rather obvious. Julius beats up Henry, Henry tells Barry who did it, and then the Flash deals with Julius and leaves him outside to be caught while escaping for another 5 years on his sentence.
Cisco pulled a Jerry Gergich this episode...he had one job to do.
I liked this episode...I'm hoping Barry sleeps with Linda. So far Felicity, Iris and Bethany have banished him to the inescapable friend zone.
I liked that we saw Pied Piper again so soon. I figured we wouldn't see him again until next season or until a Star Labs full scale breakout.
I'm nervous about whether this show can pull off Grodd. I don't think Arrow could but Flash is light hearted enough show an evil gorilla might work.
Grodd is in the comics someone with strenght of a gorilla, and has the IG like a Rchards/Doom, and telepathy like a Prof X isn't he?
Would that combo not make him maybe Flash most dangerous foe?
And Firestorm would be like in the comics, with the prof and Ronny carrying on mental debates in their head>
