REVIEW: The Flash – Season 6, Episode 19 “Success is Assured”

Thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, “Success is Assured” is the makeshift finale for season 6 of The Flash, and it certainly feels that way. It doesn’t finish the main storyline, and it doesn’t feel particularly epic or important, just more connective tissue. That makes it a letdown as a fin...

REVIEW: The Flash – Season 6, Episode 18 “Pay the Piper”

blank

After “Liberation” got things moving, “Pay the Piper” slows The Flash’s momentum down considerably, centering on a subplot introduced early in the season and then mostly forgotten till now. The main plot is on everyone’s minds, but the focus is on a pair of lesser villains while the hero...

REVIEW: The Flash – Season 6, Episode 13 “Grodd Friended Me”

blank

“Grodd Friended Me” is a gratifying return to form for The Flash, good enough to banish the memory of the last two weeks’ duds and reinvigorate a flailing season. It gets back to the moral dilemmas that made the show so fascinating from its earliest days, brings back a great villain (as oppose...
