The Flash: The Man in the Yellow Suit

The Flash has reached its winter finale and it was awesome. Finally Barry comes face to (blurry) face with the man that killed his mother and learns that he’s no match for the Man in the Yellow Suit or Reverse Flash.

  • Grant Gustin deserves a lot of credit for his work on this episode… his anguish when he went to see his father in prison to tell him that he had failed him, was heartbreaking.
  • More and more convinced that The Reverse Flash here comes from the future “we have been doing this for a long time and I’m always one step ahead” – clearly he has been doing it a long time with The Flash, just not this very young Flash.
  • I want a friend like Cisco. Even doubtful of what his friend is telling him, he goes with Caitlin and the comforts her and protects her…

  • I do not love Iris, but how differently could she have reacted?! But seriously now, how did she not know? At least that is out of the way and they didn’t drag it for long. Wondering how she’ll feel when he eventually starts dating someone else.
  • The Reverse Flash does not harm Eddie… wonder why…

  • Firestorm can fly?! WOW!!! Still, his introduction was done without any resolution to the matter.

  • Joe and Barry are my perfect father/son on tv…
  • Oh Cisco, my perfect nerd… you know more than most people… my guess is that you’re totally right, on that fateful night there were two speedsters on the Allen house: The Reverse and the Original, and that’s how little Barry ends up outside the house.
  • The parallels between Barry and Wells and The Flash and The Reserve Flash were very well played.
  • So, is Harrison Wells the Reverse Flash?! I have no doubt that he, as the RF, comes from the future, the questions is that they might not come from the same point in the future. Either the Reserve Flash is Eddie (a long way from now) and Harrison is his descendant, and that is how he has inherited the ring and suit (and abilities, maybe?!), or (again) Harrison is descendent from Eddie but he himself is the Reserve Flash, but his version on the present is actually older than the RF on this episode. Did that make any sense?! Hope so… it sounded a lot more coherent in my mind.
