Flash Season 2 Finale | Review


I just got the time to finish Flash season 2. Oh my goodness you guys! There were some events where I was like: Woooow! Stoked! And events where I was upset over the writers choice of storytelling. 

The end of the season is a bigger cliff hanger than the last and I’m very excited to see how season 3 turns out. In the following sections I will talk about some of the aspects of the season and its final episode m, so if you haven’t seen the finale be warned of spoilers!

———————

Okay so, first of all season 2 is not as good as season 1 but I still enjoyed it. What I didn’t like was that Barry couldn’t get a grip on the right attitude as the Flash and stay together with Patty, who I absolutely adore! But you know the writers are good so I accepted the style of writing because we all know the hero has to struggle through stuff.

But what I was really disappointed about was how they solved the identity of the masked man. Dude, we were all at the edge of our seats with his guy. Who he was… Why he was imprisoned. He was a key figure. Why didnt the writers give him a more spectacular reveal? It’s Jay Garrik! And it’s Barry’s dad! Hello? In the end, they just show him in the lab where his mask is being taken off. He could have had such a dramatic reveal, especially with Henry’s death. 

Here comes the next point I wan’t to talk about. Henry Allen’s murder by Zoom. I think it was very sad and heartbreaking. But seriously: Barry has too much family for a super hero. He has Henry and then a full-on dad, sister, brother family with the Wests. From a writer’s point of few, letting Henry die was a good choice, especially as he was killed by Barry’s second arch nemesis (his mom being killed by his first arch nemesis). But I seriously fear for Joe now…

The last point I want to write about is the end of the season. Barry is so heartbroken that he makes the jump into the past to change his mother’s murder, even though he decided not to do it at the end of season 1. Wow, everything is different now. And my first thought was: is Arrow going to stop with the cross overs? Because their reality will change too because of Barry’s time jump: pretty cool stuff to think about. I wonder how they continue the series. Will Barry loose his powers? Will he try to get them back in order to stop himself from preventing his mother’s death? Will Flash do a whole new story line? But isn’t that counterproductive to the show because people have started to love the characters how we know them?

Give me your thoughts! How do you think will season 3 look like?

Parks & Rec Finale

  
I just finished Parks & Recreation! The show ended a while ago but I hadn’t gotten around to watching Parks & Rec until recently. I started because I heard it was funny and I was seeing all these hilarious pics on Pinterest about it.

A few hours ago I watched the final episode of season 7 and I am happy with how things ended. I am also glad, that they are not dragging on the show (how they seem to do it with Castle- seriously: I don’t have the motivation to watch anymore, even though I love the characters and the show).  

I don’t want to spoil it for you so go ahead and watch the show! The episodes are short, about 20min each so it’s easy to watch on a little break
