Mark Mardon, brother of Clyde Mardon, kills the city's coroner with one goal in mind: to get the name of Joe West, the man who killed his brother. Receiving word and breaking his impromptu double-date with Linda, Iris and Eddie (where Iris and Barry's close behavior equally disturbs their dates), Barry freakishly sees himself running beside him en route to the crime scene at superspeed. Joe, knowing the impossibility of protection against meta-humans, works the case but is captured and used to lure Iris to the beach. Meanwhile, as Police Captain Singh winds up hospitalize in trying to protect Joe, Cisco pays dearly for pursuing his suspicions against Harrison. Back at the beach, Iris finally learns the identity of The Flash as Barry tries to thwart Mark's tsunami, hurtling toward the city, and winds up meeting himself en route to the coroner's office instead.

There seems to be no reason why Barry couldn't have stopped the Weather Wizard from creating the massive storm which formed the tidal wave by using Cisco's Wizard's Wand. See more »


Caitlin Snow: So Clyde Mardon has a brother?
Dr. Harrison Wells: And both brothers survived the plane crash, and then the dark matter released from the particle accelerator explosion affects them both in virtually the same way.
Barry Allen: Yeah, only Mark's power seem to be a lot more precise. To be able to control the weather like that, indoors?
Cisco Ramon: You'd have to be a Weather Wizard. Ooh, I've been waitin' since week one to use that one.

User Reviews

7 June 2015 | by cheroldSee all my reviews

I really liked the first few episodes of The Flash, but then I began to become slightly weary of its villains-of-the-week, and only really kept with the story because I was curious about the mysteries of Wells and Barry's mom.

By last week, though, I was ready to give up. The story arc was proceeding too slowly, and I just couldn't wait anymore. So I went looking for recaps to find out how it all turned out.

However, what I found was that this episode was the one where things finally kick into high gear. It was the episode I'd been impatiently waiting for. And so I watched it, and it was great, very intense and original. The story arc took a big leap forward.

I hope there are more like this coming.
