Rushed to the finish line, left the view in the dust.
This episode had a great plot, plenty of engaging material for the audience to sit on the edge of their seats, biting their nails. Unfortunately, the delivery of the plot was disappointing to say the least. The plot twists would have been great, if they gave us time to process them, highlight the emotional impact of those twists. Instead we are quickly pushed to the next big plot point and left with a feeling of "Okay, I suppose it wasn't that big of a deal after all". Big expected clashes between the Flash and Savitar, between Killer Frost and Cisco were short and underwhelming. Instead of spending an extra 2-3 min on each fight scene, giving the audience some proper action and excitement worthy of a season finale, the episode director seemed more concerned with saving the budget for season 4. A lot of this would have been a lot more digestible, had it not been for the fact that the entire season leading up to this episode, hadn't been one massive build up, promising us a thrilling conclusion. It feels a bit like going to a movie that you've been super excited to see because of the amazing trailers, only to find out that the shots in the trailers are the only interesting parts of the movie. The creators behind the Flash TV show knows how to work the audience, how to perfectly time the drama and the action, this is the very reason why so many love the Flash. But that means they should've known that a season finale like this would turn out incredibly underwhelming.
