The Flash - The Exorcism of Nash Wells

Discovering all the versions of Harrison Wells from the collapsed Multiverse are living inside Nash (Tom Cavanagh), Team Flash races to stop Eobard Thawne from taking control of Nash's body permanently and regaining his speed powers. With much of the episode taking place within Nash's mind, the episode offers the opportunity to explore his past including his relationship with the Maya (Briana Tedesco) from his Earth while also teasing the return of the series most memorable villain. Unfortunately, the storyline falls back on the show's tired trope of Barry (Grant Gustin), now with limited speed thanks to the destruction of the Speed Force, acting like a jerk for about half the episode before coming around and being the swell guy his friends and family know him to be.

In the other storyline, the mirror doppelgangers under the control of Eva McCulloch (Efrat Dor) are sent after a Prismatic Refractor which a new sunshine-powered meta, coincidentally named Sunshine (Natalie Sharp), also has her eyes on. Other than offering an opportunity for Barry to help without using his powers, there's not much to the storyline. Although it does allow Joe (Jesse L. Martin) to see an example of Iris' (Candice Patton) odd behavior which Kid Flash (Keiynan Lonsdale) commented on last week. Is someone finally beginning to suspect something might not be quite right with Mrs. Flash?
