I’m back with FLASH Back Tuesdays. Every week I’ll review episodes off CW’s new hit television series called The Flash. If you haven’t watched the series I recommend you do so now, before I go all in twenty-three episodes. Season Two is set to premiere on Tuesday October 6th. I’ll be reviewing Episode Four “Going Rogue” and Five “Plastique”.
EPISODE FOUR – GOING ROGUE
Barry’s day off is more busier since he’s gain his abilities. Currently he’s at S.T.A.R. Labs, while Barry plays Chess with Dr. Wells, Operation with Caitlin, and Ping-Pong with Cisco. During this, an armory truck is being hijacked. The one in charge is calculating the time the police are getting there. Flash is able to defeat all the robberies but one of them shot one of the guards. This makes Barry chose to take the guard to the hospital instead of stopping them. Barry was able to see one of the robberies face and went through the entire mug shot book in no matter than seconds and finds the familiar face… it’s Stark. Iris tells Barry that with all her journalism classes and she’s inspired to create an anonymous blog about The Streak. Felicity is in his lab and Barry is so out of it. Felicity definitely has an impact on Barry. You get to see where they started on Arrow. Another CW show that it’s worth the watch. Felicity tells Barry that she knows about his secret and wants to see it for herself. So Barry runs all the way to the top of a building and takes a picture of Felicity from there. Barry tells Felicity to S.T.A.R. Labs to show her his team. Felicity has so many questions regarding Barry’s condition and Wells lets her know their doing everything possible to make sure Barry’s okay. Eddie and Joe are having a bit of some tension because Iris lied about them being together. Iris wants to have a double date with Barry and Felicity. Iris can tell they like each other. Stark meets with a man that has heavy duty equipment that is actually stolen from S.T.A.R. Labs. Stark got an Ice Gun fits well with his persona. Trivia Night at Jitters. Felicity overdressed for Trivia Night. E=MC Hammer is their team name. Nerdy humor. Stark is at a museum where the Dynasty Diamond is found. Wells discovers that his weapons are missing, his blaming Cisco for not knowing. He wants to know how long it’s been missing. This weapon that Cisco created can really hurt Barry. Stark is on to the cops who know he’s at the museum. Barry’s gets notified and gets there in time to save Joe, but wasn’t fast enough to save everyone in the museum. Barry is devastated that he wasn’t able to save the security guard. Cisco admits that he was the one who built the gun, Barry can’t believe it. So in a way Cisco made a weapon to stop Barry if he ever went haywire.
Joe has a lot on his shoulders, because since his daughter is with Eddie it makes it difficult for him to focus. Stark is attempting to steal the diamond again. Felicity gives a lot of great advice to Barry regarding the lifestyle of a hero or being apart of a team. Cisco name for Stark is Captain Cold. They were able to get a ping back off the ice gun. Stark is heading to the train station. Joe tells Eddie he needs to stay back. Felicity helps to motivate the team to be there for Barry, whether or not Barry wants it or not. Captain Cold knows The Flash’s weakness and that’s to save lives. Stark freeze the train’s railings and the entire train is about to crashed. Barry in a flash saves numerous people who were on that train. Even though we see it in slow-motion, that’s how fast he’s going. At the end of it, Barry saves everyone but then gets shot by Captain Cold’s freeze gun. The Flash’s team comes in time and saves Barry. Pretty funny how they tricked Stark with the S.T.A.R. Labs vacuum cleaner. Felicity is on her way out, she needs to get back to her Arrow team. They hug goodbye. Iris visits her father to apologize because of not looking out for his view on things. But Joe underestimated Eddie, because he saved him tonight at the train station. Speaking of trains Felicity is on one and Barry surprises her. They both know they like each other but they still like the other people. Barry and Felicity have a kiss goodbye. Makes my heart melt. Stark contacts an old friend and needs back up with the Heat Gun. This is going to be intense. Fire and Ice working together against the Flash.

Cisco is mesmerized by Plastique’s look. Joe speaks to Barry that Iris saw the Streak. He wants Barry to talk to Iris about stop blogging about the streak. Iris doesn’t understand why Barry is against her blogging. Even mentioning how serious can you be with you leaving it anonmouyous. Plastique is out for revenge to the people who did this to her. Iling is after her and Barry was able to get her out there in the nick of time. S.T.A.R Labs is doing their best to get her informed on her condition.
