Did You Know?


This episode was based on the Trial of the Flash storyline which ran from The Flash #323 (July 1983) to The Flash #350 (October 1985), the final issue of the first volume of the Flash title. See more »


Cecile does not present a defense for Barry because he refuses to testify. However, Barry's testimony is not the only part of the defense she could have presented. She could have asked Iris to testify that the murder weapon was not included in the wedding gift that they opened together. She could have also asked Joe and the other guests at his Christmas party to testify that Barry was at the party so he would not have had time to commit the murder. See more »


Joe West: What happened here?
Captain David Singh: Well, vintage Central City. Meaning another weird one. No data breach, nothing stolen. Everyone just collapsed. I have officers at the hospital interviewing people now, but so far, no one knows anything.

Logic missing...
17 January 2018 | by IvayloYordanovSee all my reviews

A crime upon a dead mean, going alone in somebody house, and yet the wheelchair was nobody to be found... How did he get there ? ()Isn't it all so obvious stupid ? Well this was one of the worst episode, the writhing was terrible, epic and stupid, reminding us how not to do a show ... Like the old Spiderman and the stupid truth that took 3 different movies to be told as it could be done in one, as it should have, and it is in the new line up of movies... () Arrow universe, you are lost in your stupidity...
