After a bomb goes off downtown, the army, led by General Eiling, rolls in and takes over the case, much to Joe's surprise. Suspicious, Joe tells Barry that he and his friends at S.T.A.R. Labs should look into the army's involvement. Wells informs the team that Eiling was experimenting on his men to turn them into super soldiers. Cisco confirms one of Eiling's soldiers, Bette Sans Souci, was at the bomb site. The Flash tracks her down and realizes that she's not setting off the bombs, she is a meta-human who can blow things up just by touching them. Meanwhile, when Joe learns Iris is writing about "the streak," he tells Barry to make her stop. Barry realizes Iris won't listen to him so he decides to have The Flash pay her a visit.

Nice spin on the metahuman villainy
1 April 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For now, the will they or won't they romantic drama surrounding Barry and Iris works well, but it's a gimmick that does wear out fast if not handled just right. Another gimmick that wears out pretty fast is freak of the week villainy, however "Plastique" puts a nice, personal spin on it by having our metahuman be a good person. A victim. Her power is a little bit of a stretch, but it's used effectively; particularly in the climax.

Guest star Clancy Brown (a good Ohio boy) makes things better simply by being Clancy Brown, and though I do like the chemistry between Barry and Iris, my favorite moments in the show continue to be the ones between Barry and Joe. The two actors have a nice father and son vibe together and Jesse L. Martin is wonderful in the role.
