REVIEW: The Flash – Season 8, Episode 15 “Into the Still Force”

Iris’ disappearance at the end of “Funeral for a Friend” takes center stage in “Into the Still Force,” a building block episode that inches Barry closer to saving his wife without closing out the storyline yet. It’s a bit more unfocused than The Flash has been this year, with a couple of...
