This week’s Flash felt both padded and overly soap operatic, and not at all “Timeless.”
Life probably hasn’t been normal for Barry since he was a kid, and less so since he got his powers. Lately, it’s been even stranger, as the team clashed with Mirror Monarch and dealt with the aftermath.
Season seven’s premier seemed, to me at least, more like the season finale we didn’t get last time.
The Flash hits the last episode before the big Crisis On Infinite Earths takes over the DC CW-verse. Last time, Barry got taken over by Bloodwork (that’s just not an intimidating name for a villain), leaving the team without their most powerful member.
