This also marks a milestone, in that as of this episode, The Flash surpasses Arrow in number of episodes. With this being a season finale, there will be spoilers below.
Flash and his friends struggle to figure out what’s going on, and they’re a few steps behind throughout the episode. Other surprises include more visitors, the truth behind an ally, some troubling decisions, and a shocking ending.
This episode was all over the road, with unexpected guest stars, subplots lurking around every corner, and a lot of surprises.
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.
Season seven of The Flash reaches its end amid the chaos of the Godspeed war. We get a resolution to that, several allies working together, an old enemy coming back, and a nice little family scene at the end. To my surprise, there was no big cliffhanger, which the CW usually does on their season finales.
The problems with the Mirror Universe and Eva McCulloch seem to be the big issues for the second half of Flash’s current season. Even after Crisis reshaped the multiverse (do the heroes know there are other worlds now?), alternate worlds keep plaguing the Flash and his friends.
Things have been complicated for Team Flash since the Crisis ended, and that continues in this episode. There’s a new threat to deal with, the return of an old enemy, and two friends come back as well.
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.
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.
Last episode, the team learned Nora’s big secret. This episode deals with the fallout, and gives us some insight about how things happened. Essentially, it’s the secret origin of Nora West.
