Storyline

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.

What Happened?

"Plastique" is I hate to say it, the worst episode of The Flash so far. The love triangle between Barry and Iris is now just getting a bit strange to me. I like the whole idea of The Flash changing his voice and meeting her pretending to be somebody else, but isn't that just a bit too cliché? I mean, Batman does it, Arrow does it and so Does Spider-Man, so why Flash had to copy them, I have no idea. The episode also feels flat, and boring. While don't get me wrong, this episode was enjoyable, it lacked in many areas. The villain "Plastique" is the worst villain we've ever had. She's not one bit believable, I mean c'mon a girl that touches you and automatically makes you a human bomb!? That's one stupid idea. The episode drags a lot too, making me lose focus at times. The love triangle was cute, but now it's getting annoying. Overall, not the best episode. Hope they can redeem themselves next week! Best of luck to the Flash team! - Jdmax
