The Flash - Wednesday Ever After

The Flash returns for its final season with a time loop episode where Barry (Grant Gustin) and Iris (Candice Patton) will eventually learn to listen and work together by the end of the episode. The episode sees the return of well-intentioned Barry whose obsession with keeping to the existing timeline on-track causes friction at home and the exact opposite of his intentions. We also get a new Captain Boomerang (Richard Harmon), Cecile (Danielle Nicolet) training to use her powers, and in the epilogue a tease of a storyline involving Frost (Danielle Panabaker).

The show is long past its prime with a need to carve out segments to focus on a bloated supporting cast, which we continue to see here, rather than spend that time on our hero or the plot. That said, the time-loop (outside of the marital squabbling) has its moments. We get a tease of what appears to be an evil speedster behind the new Boomerang (joy, another one of those!), but it appears that will be a slow reveal with the show's more immediate attention picking up the thread of last's seasons cliffhanger with Frost (or whoever Panabaker may now be playing).
