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?

TV Show: DC’s Supergirl | Flash Crossover

Supergirl-JS-tvgm-812x522

Gotta be honest here: I started watching DC’s Supergirl just because a crossover with DC’s Flash was announced (Flash is my current favorite show, even though season 2 has so many breaks between it’s episodes it is quite frustrating).

To be honest, Supergirl is entertaining at times but I get rather bored by the fight scenes. I like the scenes where she is Kara or tries to conceal her identity but I have seen so many versions of Superman that I favor him over Supergirl. Clark only sometimes appears and you never see his face. Sure, CW  doesn’t want to meddle with other DC stuff or the movies that are out and the show is not about him but Kara.

When the Supergirl/ Flash crossover came around I was surprised to see how they resolved the DC universe issue. You guys might know that there are lots of other shows exiciting like Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow and Flash but neither of them mention Supergirl in any way or that they have a Superman.

Barry Allen appears in Supergirl’s National City, rather confused by her not knowing who he is and being very irritated by the fact that she is an alien. The solution: As he is training to get faster in order to beat Zoom, he is actually so fast that he breaches the connection between the earths and enters into another earth, let’s call it Earth 3.

There are no Meta Humans, no Starlabs, no super heros or vigilantes on Earth 3 other than Supergirl and Superman. So Barry can basically reveal his identity to everyone without risking too much. He helps out Kara and then runs back to Earth 1 by the end of the episode. That episode itself was fun to watch.

TV Series: Flash

 
As I am watching Arrow, I got introduced to the Flash which has multiple crossovers with Arrow

The show is so good. I like it as much as Arrow. The main character Barry Allen is struck by lightning after a laboratory accident and goes into a nine month coma. He wakes up to a whole set of new abilities. Speed, high metabolism and the ability to heal quickly. Berry now lives a double life as CSI investigator and superhero, called the Streak or later on the Flash. 

If you like shows like Smallville or Arrow, check this one out to. It’s definately worth a watch.
