When he walks off brooding, Iris catches up with him to give him a pep talk. Let's start with our loud, Elongated Man who is becoming a problem. But regardless, I'm thrilled that they went with that color. We have seen Iris' life be pushed off-screen a lot of times which is why I appreciate her story here. Yes, but with an unfortunate heavy dose of Ralph Dibny feeling entitled and mopey.
Should we be more than curious about how Cisco had a suit ready for her this whole time?. This The Flash review contains spoilers. It's tough for me to really process just how much story and character development they managed to pack into this one, even in something that could have been a gimmick episode with a villain of the week. I don't know if I could see Barry or Cisco or anyone else handling that situation in quite the same way. Caitlin, who was in earshot, confronts Cisco and tells him he should help Harry. Barry mentors her over the communication and tells her how to stop the fire meta.
The Flash Season 4 Episode 16 'sup, speedsters? In what may have been the longest night of his life, Barry Allen entered Flashtime to slow the detonation of a nuclear bomb. Now, with a new threat unleashed on Central City, Barry must act as the team leader while Iris takes on the mantle of superhero speedster in order to defeat their new foe. Ralph is getting cold feet about the situation as he knows that DeVoe is still after him. I think it's the kind of quality you only see in a real leader, and I hope they show more of this side of Iris down the line. Barry: What if I never get it back? A young man tries to talk him down and tries to change his mind.
Of course Cisco would name it as a way to bust Harry's balls. An episode about Iris should have been focused on her as much as possible. But it goes bad as he takes Iris under a throat grip. Caitlin is gonna find something. It featured a compelling narrative and strong performances from the entire cast.
It was, without a doubt, funny to see another Glee alum enter the Arrowverse in the form of Max Adler. Iris tests her speed back at Star Labs as the team figures out that this new meta is DeVoe's next target. Iris talks to Barry about wanting to prove to herself that she can do this. I understand his fear of dying at the hands of DeVoe. Like many Iris West fans, I have been waiting for this moment since the beginning of The Flash. It didn't help that he started out as a sexist douche, especially given some drama about a former showrunner. Cisco: Yeah, which one of them is in mad science? It just feels like DeVoe is.
It's not a degree, okay? But she isn't able to as Cisco breaches in to save her. And next week, she gets the chance to prove it. Everything about Iris' story was top notch and one of the character's best hours in the series. Harry Jierjian directed the episode written by Eric Wallace 416. Labs and dedicates his life to protect the innocent.
After Cisco turns it off, Harry reveals he knows the names of the other two bus metas. Iris needs to run on water on the nearby bay and create a tidal wave to put out the tower of fire. But Ralph has had a solid progression throughout the season. The Flash Season 4 has done a solid job so far in addressing her agency more than ever. The scene where Iris races off to save people from a fire after barely getting her new powers also lacks any common sense and logic.
The team looks into it but Iris asks Barry to stay behind while Iris wants to go out on the field to investigate. Barry tries to tell her to phase through the beam and she has to reach down inside herself and feel it, but the scared and inexperienced speedster begins to panic. Another call comes in about a new fiery meta outside the same bank. I did appreciate the heart-to-heart that Iris had with Ralph. During a battle with Team Flash, Harold transfers Barry's super speed to Iris. With Harry identifying the last two bus metas and with Matthew joining Team Flash to fight DeVoe, it should be very interesting and exciting to see what Team Flash comes up with to stop the evil mastermind.
They both have something to prove to themselves, even though they have the greater good at heart. Iris has another talk with Ralph and shares his concern for DeVoe killing him. He will be the latest Glee alum to appear in the Arrowverse, after Gustin, Melissa Benoist, Darren Criss and Nolan Funk. A little while later, Joe and Cisco are investigating the robbery and are quick to realize the man in custody is the would-be robber but that his powers are now gone. However, viewers saw things through his lightning-quick speed, which only Jesse Quick and Jay Garrick were able to help with. The team tracks down Matthew Kim and Iris get her own suit as she rushes off to help out. He grabs Iris and holds her at knife point.
