I'm beginning to enjoy this Shawshank feel (which was actually referenced tonight) to these prison sequences. Barry and Big Sir developed a nice back and forth within a few episodes and the latter's arc in tonight's episode provided a nice emotional weight to something Team Flash was doing (help prove him innocent), while they had a humorously charged villain to deal with on their own. Is that two straight weeks where the tone of the episode was the highlight for myself? Yes, it was. Should we just keep Barry in jail for the time being?
But the great thing is, these two plot points (Big Sir's escape and Team Flash taking down Dwarfstar) were complemented well by the fact that it still proves just how ahead of them DeVoe really is. The best of villains are felt even when they're not on screen. While I still don't approve of the actor change to DeVoe, I can't deny that he's definitely made his mark on Team Flash's usual shenanigans in Central City.
Aside from the random reveal that Cecile has mind control powers (has no one made the connection that it could be related to DeVoe or maybe he's inhabited her body now somehow too?), the episode was a feast for the eyes and ears. With laugh out loud humor and a dramatic undertone, there was a lot to like. Also, does anyone find it weird this episode aired the same day that the Ant-Man & the Wasp trailer debuted? Probably a strange coincidence.
