One of the better episodes in The Flash. Wonder if Captain Cold has to do something to do with the episode's effectiveness. Somehow, the episodes where he makes an appearance are always gripping. In my opinion, the show works better if it focuses on crime than science fiction. In other words, a typical DC product. And, in this episode, you can see why.

Story - Captain Cold plans a heist with his dad, and Barry tries to stop them. Meanwhile, Prof Stein is having some troubles. And, guess who's back?

Rating - 9/10
