The Law of Unintended Consequences – Review of “Rogue Time”, Episode 116 of THE FLASH

Category: Reviews — By

In an episode that has echoes of “Groundhog Day”, Barry Allen finds out the hard way that messing with the past can have serious results. If you didn’t see last week’s episode, you may want to catch that one first, as this episode makes SO much more sense that way. It would be very hard to match the intensity level of last week’s show…and unfortunately there are parts of last week’s episode that no longer apply (spoilers ahead)…but still this is an important chapter of the story, and if nothing else a little…Golden…intervention makes this another very interesting episode of our favorite super-hero show.
