It was an episode that didn't quite work for me, there were lots of very clever ideas within married with all of the ongoing subplots and it all didn't quite gel together. The problem fundamentally is that this was an episode moving the overall season-arc along, no major reveals as such, just a distraction revolving around a Queen Bee angry because she was fired from her job and now used her invention to hunt down her ex-boss and get revenge of the lethal kind.
 
This story was pure comicbook, a plot torn out of traditional superhero adventures. How many of the classic DC/Marvel comics had disgruntled ex-employees going after the person who fired them and the superhero having to intervene... the problem on screen though is that patterning the dialogue directly on the extreme melodrama of those vintage books made for extremely improboble dialogue for the actor playing the villain this month and the threat of her minute robotic bees, while excellently conceived, were not a convincing threat for the Flash. To see him struggle haplessly against these bees made for a distinctly unconvincing sight...


Yeah I would think Barry could have spun around in a whirl wind and spun the bees off him.
