Did You Know?


Dr. Wells refers to Tony as "the man of steel." This, of course, is a tongue-in-cheek reference to Superman. See more »


At the beginning the Flash talks to Iris and she says "it's crazy what you can do to your voice". As she has always heard him talk that way there's no way she can know he's "doing" it and that it's not the way it normally sounds. See more »

Iris West: [on her blog; voice-over] To understand what I'm about to tell you, you need to do something first. You need to believe in the impossible. Can you do that? Good. Because all of us, we have forgotten what miracles look like, maybe because they haven't made much of an appearance lately. Our lives have become ordinary, but there's someone out there who is truly extraordinary.

Great Episode!
4 December 2014 | by See all my reviews

The Flash redeems itself from last weeks episode. This weeks episode is really good, not better than episode 1 or 4 but definitely good. I love the new villain Tony. The conflict is probably the best we had so far, the final scene is also incredible! The background to Tony's story about him being a bully to Barry is genius and really stands up to bully's globally! Flash learns how strong he really is on this episode which made extremely enjoyable to watch. Villain is superb! Iris chasing after "The streak" is now starting to annoy me as well as there love triangle as I said last week. I liked Iris at some point, but she's beginning to look like some mindless idiot looking for a red streak. I don't like her as much as I did before which makes me sad. I might be the only one to say this but I really ship Barry and Caitlin. Just saying. Overall, fantastic episode. Not the best, but definitely not the worst! Here's to another great episode! - Jdmax
