.....for me, this was another solid Season 2 offering - Sonja served well as a plot device for EVERYone, including Cabe (and Toby, even Sylvester) who is now trying to re-establish the trust in his relationship with Walter, to re-evaluate their judgment - it's only NATURAL after what's transpired between those two, for HIM to acquiesce into such an increasingly familiar, yet now DIFFERENT tete-a-tete with Paige (do either of them have a good grasp on what the understanding at which they've arrived, actually signifies, means? Not QUITE - and it's a process of evolution for HER as much as Walter, in trying to reconcile frequently conflicting impulses with a much stronger sense of what her role is.....)
Sorry - 1 more quibble. If Eddie's shooting himself meant that Eobard Thawn never existed, shouldn't everything connected to Eobard and his actions have been eliminated? headache-inducing "timey-wimey" stuff (to borrow from Doctor Who)
I was sort of thinking that route myself... Like how had Barry's mom even died if Eobard never existed?
Agree that Eobard not existing means everything should have been undone .So Nora Allen should still be alive ,The real Harrison Wells would have built the particle accelerator years later and Bary would have become flash much later.But i don't think that the writers would take that path and undo everything.
I thought Henry leaving made no sense, despite the noble reason he gave. Also, after all those years in prison (and no mention of his being given restitution), where will he go? Barry wanted and deserved a chance to get to know his Dad outside of the context of prison. Too soon, IMO. Was there anything in Wells's recording that would have given away that Barry was the Flash? I can't remember. Perhaps he was just referencing mentoring Barry and Barry's growth. Overall, really enjoyed this episode, though, and look forward to the rest of the season.
It wasn't one of the better ones but I still enjoyed it. I knew Bishop and Jake would be having marital woes this season, I hope they work it out. I can't see her hooking up with Tony, it would throw off the team dynamics in my opinion. So not sure where they are going with Tony and Bishop both having relationship problems at the same time but I hope they don't throw them together. If they are going to give Tony a new love interest I would rather it be someone new and not a past one. I am not too fond of Zoe, so he can split with her as far as I'm concerned. I did feel bad for Tony and his feeling of not belonging when Senior passes. If one of the guys had been where Bishop was instead, they would have done the same thing and I know Ziva would not have waited for backup. In the end she took care of herself. I did cringe when the guy fell backwards with the scissors stuck in his back. It was kind hard to follow where all the pieces fit. It is one of those episodes some viewers would have to re-watch so it all makes sense...me being one of them.
What a great episode! Good review. I was surprised by Ronnie's death .Loved Cisco's welcome hug to Stein .Henry leaving seemed justified.Jay Garrick's entry was cool.Wells gave Bary what he wanted for so long but like he predicted Barry still is not happy.Hope we see more of Tom Cavanaugh.
I normally agree with your reviews, but not this time. You indicate that it was not clear why Newton began to investigate Hudson, but we knew they had both been at Camp Lejuine at the same time and that's they ran into each other at a cafeteria in Quantico. Newton realized the woman was not the real Mrs Hudson, and that is why he took the knife, and why he was killed. I don't think the conversation with the lawyer went nowhere, it provided the motive for the killing. While this wasn't one of the best episodes, I thought was pretty good. I enjoyed seeing Bishop go into the house and nearly jumped out of my seat when she found the body.
"Newton realized the woman was not the real Mrs. Hudson". Yeah, not buying it. Not when Abby had to compare two pictures, and realize that the only appreciable difference between the two was a misaligned beauty mark. Maybe her voice was different, or her mannerisms, and that's how he spotted her. Who knows? The show didn't tell us.
Unless you meant there is no way he would have figured it out on his own. I am a little slow this morning. Too bad we didn't find out what tipped him off.
I don't know, he did take her knife at the restaurant. He knew something was up with her.
I agree. Very lazy of the writers to use the old tired trope of the bad corporate exec. Just like if you want a corrupt government agency you use the CIA. By the way the air station is in Belle Chasse which is in Plaquemines Parish so that parish's ME should be handling the body not Loretta from Jefferson Parish. Minor point - I love CCH Pounder.
"...By the way the air station is in Belle Chasse which is in Plaquemines Parish so that parish's ME should be handling the body not Loretta from Jefferson Parish." Not unless there's another NCIS office in that parish. It was a naval officer who was killed so a naval agency gets the case.
The NCIS office is in Orleans Parish near the French Quarter (think of the rent!) Maybe the Navy has a contract with Jefferson Parish to handle their forensic work. Might be cheaper and easier than bringing in Ducky and Abbie from the mothership in DC.
I just really wish we didn't have this jumping about from the bomb to the academy. It's a distraction and is taking away from both plots.
Christine, as always, I appreciate, reflect on, learn from, and value your writing style, content, and passion!!! Thank you!!!
I loved the premier and I am stoked that they are introducing another speedster and following up on the fact that another speedsters helmet fell out of the ring last season. One question, how come no one is curious about the fact that there is a meta-human that wasn't created in central city? So the collider had nothing to do with it and can we still call him meta?
