It’s been a rough few episodes for Team Flash. They had a big disagreement amongst themselves on how to handle the apparent return of Ronnie Raymond, Caitlin’s husband and the original Firestorm, got a major shock when this being turned out to be Deathstorm, and everything they’ve tried against it has failed.
The CW’s big crossover events are something that a lot of fans, me included, look forward to. Like so many other things, last year’s was cancelled due to complications from COVID. In part to try and make up for that, The Flash began season eight with a five-part event called Armageddon.
Flash’s long-term planning has been all sorts of thrown off over the last year or so. COVID changed the spacing and timing on a few major plot elements, and in some ways it feels like they’ve been struggling to get back on track ever since. When in doubt, they toss the mysterious Godspeed into the mix.
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.
