Barry runs so fast that he literally runs through time and back “a day and some change,” specifically into the beginning of last week’s episode. To recap, he’s ran into a time before [SPOILER ALERT] Weather Wizard 2.0 kidnapped Joe in revenge, before Captain Singh was hospitalized/paralyzed, before the WestAllen kiss, before a tsunami threatened Central City, and before Wells vibrated his fist through Cisco’s chest.
Only my fellow nerds understand how excited I was to hear a narrative voiceover again, despite basically memorizing our hero’s speech. But it’s a new year, and we have a new Barry!
“My name is Barry Allen. I am not the fastest man alive.”
Four episodes into its debut season, and I’m still waiting for one that I don’t like. With everything last night’s episode had going for it — the debut of Flash’s most iconic nemesis Captain Cold and Felicity Smoak’s long awaited crossover appearance — chances were high that “Going Rogue” was going to be another home run for The CW’s most watched show ever.
