Season six of The Flash is mostly about getting ready for the Crisis on Infinite Earths. Barry has more or less accepted the fact of his own death, and is trying to prepare the team for his not being around anymore.
With all the pressure on everyone from the approaching Crisis, the team takes a different approach in this episode. The focus this week is on the secondary characters, a mystery, and some underground happenings.
Last episode ended on a bummer of a note, as the Monitor dropped by to erase Nora’s goodbye message and bring grim tidings to Barry and Iris. There’s been a lot of advance buzz about the major crossover coming this winter, and this episode definitely contributes to the hype.
Season Five of The Flash ended on a serious downbeat, as the future was rewritten and Nora/XS was erased from the present. It was a shocking surprise, and an unexpected end to the season.
The CW/DC Universe finales keep coming with stories that touch on the future and present both. Flash is very concerned with “Legacy,” which would have worked for the title of Arrow as well, but they used it in season five.
The end is almost here for Team Flash… of the season, that is. Now that they have everyone back together and on the same side, they need to figure out a way to stop Cicada II, or She-Cada as she’s been dubbed (I admit, that name is growing on me).
Things are speeding along towards the end of the season on the Flash. Barry made a rash decision last episode, and that causes a lot of complications for this one.
