Last episode ended with Iris proving why it’s often not a great idea to go off by yourself in this kind of show. Now, things are different although no one can put their finger on what’s going on. We also get Valentine’s Day drama, the return of a very entertaining foe, and have several missing cast members once again.
After a longer than normal season break, the Flash and his friends return to try and figure out the strange new world Crisis left behind. We get a feel for some of the changes, some important decisions, and the beginnings of a big new threat.
The Crisis on Infinite Earths keeps going, claiming more aspects of DC’s past as the remaining heroes try and assemble the Paragons the Monitor says are so vital. They’ve taken some losses, and are making some questionable choices in the wake of the tragedies.
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.
Last episode ended with the surprising ambush of Elongated Man by the annoying Ramsey Rosso. Now we see the outcome of that fight and several other surprises as the Crisis creeps closer.
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.
