The Flash at Midseason: Worst New Character, Most Welcome Return & More!

at . Comments

Have you been enjoying The Flash Season 2 so far?

We're taking a look at some of the bigger moments to see where we are at midseason.

It's been very enjoyable, and we're expecting the biggest material is still to come. 

If you need to catch up before the series' return, you can watch The Flash online any time!

1. Most Surprisingly Touching Moment

Most Surprisingly Touching Moment
The Flash Season 2 Episode 1 was full of surprises, but one of the greatest was learning Harrison Wells/Eobard Thawne left to Barry Allen STAR Labs AND confessed to murdering his mother so that Barry could have everything he thought would make him happy. It's just like Wells to do something so confusing, so that even in death we are left wondering if he's evil incarnate or just misunderstood. It kinda made us miss him all the more.

2. Character Acting Most Out of Charcter

Character Acting Most Out of Charcter
When Henry Allen got released from prison, we expected him to want to get to know his son. Instead he hung up a "gone fishin'" sign and left Central City so his boy could be The Flash instead of Henry Allen's son. We cry foul on that, especially since we later learned Henry didn't even take a moment to catch up on family photos and take some along for the trip. It seemed really out of character for one of the best dads on TV.

3. Best New Character

Best New Character
Having two Flashes was already going to be a lot of fun, but Jay Garrick is actually a really great guy. He has personal insight on both Zoom and Harry Wells, as well as Earth 2, and he's providing valuable insight for Barry about being a Flash.

4. Worst New Character

Worst New Character
Sorry, Barry, we know you have fallen for Patty Spivot, but some of us just...haven't. It would be far more interesting for us to get to know Iris better and follow her work at the Central City Picture News than it is suffering through another police officer's antics and artificial love story with you. She gets away with far more than any character of her ilk should.

5. Best Family Dynamics

 Best Family Dynamics
Without a doubt, it's the West family. There were many opportunities for miscommuntion (or lack of communication) to become betwween the members of this family, but instead they listened, forgave and grew closer as a result of the trauma they experienced. If only every family on TV could be as well adjusted as the Wests. Joe is the patriarch after which all patriarchs should be modeled.

6. Most Ridiculous Use of Super Speed

Most Ridiculous Use of Super Speed
You gotta admit that Barry drawing the photo of Vandal Savage was ridiculous, but it was also adorable. That Barry can do pretty much anything with his speed in record time makes The Flash light and cheerful, even when the chips are waaaay down.

The Flash Quotes

One mystery I cannot figure out is why some people come into our lives and why some people go. Others become a part of you. Some friendships feel like they'll last forever and others end far too soon. Not every friendship is meant to last forever. What does last forever is the pain when that person is gone.


Barry: People we admire aren't always who we want them to be.
Iris: Well said.
