“Attack On Central City” Review of S3 Ep14 of THE FLASH

“There’s always another way.” That theme keeps coming through in this episode, and it makes “Attack on Central City” much more than just a battle with Grodd…even though the battle WAS fantastic! Grodd has used Gypsy’s abilities to bring an entire gorilla army to Earth One, with the singular goal of turning Central City into a wasteland! Can Barry find “another way” to defeat Grodd?

“Into The Speed Force” Synopsis, And More

The CW has released the official still images from next week’s episode of The Flash, titled “Attack On Central City”. In the image above, you can see Accelerated Man (played by Sean Poague), who is the Flash of Earth-19. It seems like he may be assisting Team Flash against Grodd’s invasion, and one wonders if he’ll be interacting with H.R., who is native to that world. Accelerated Man is from the comics, though he’s only appeared in The Multiversity #2 and The Multiversity Guidebook by Grant Morrison. You can see the rest of the stills of Cisco, Gypsy, H.R. and more, at CBR.

Just for fun, here’s the poster created by the CW for “Attack On Central City”. You’ve got to love the pun and that beautifully-rendered image of Grodd.

And finally, here’s the official synopsis for the March 14th episode, titled “Into the Speed Force”.

The Flash 3×16 “Into the Speed Force”: “BARRY TURNS TO THE SPEED FORCE – Desperate to stop Savitar and save his friends, Barry (Grant Gustin) turns to the speed force for answers. H.R. (Tom Cavanagh) gives Jesse (guest star Violett Beane) some advice. Gregory Smith directed the episode written by Brooke Roberts & Judalina Neira (#316).” The Flash season 3 airs Tuesdays at 8PM on the CW. “Into the Speed Force” airs March 14.

Looking forward to more Grodd and the debut of Accelerated Man? Let us know your thoughts!

Jay Garrick Returns On The Cover Of Flash #22

DC has posted the cover for the last issue of the upcoming FlashBatman crossover, and it’s another big one. As reported by CBR, Jay Garrick is apparently back as of Flash #22. This image is part of a lenticular cover by Jason Fabok.

Jay has been in the Earth-2 book since the early days of the post-Flashpoint era, where he’d been youthfully de-aged and was no longer the elder statesman readers had become so familiar with. But that series ends next month, and people had been hoping he’d return to the main DCU. It’s not clear what version of Jay we’ll be seeing in the upcoming crossover, but his uniform (and helmet!) is much more reminiscent of pre-Flashpoint Jay than the one in the Earth-2 book.

Looking forward to the return of Jay? What do you hope to see done with him, and potentially with the JSA? Share your thoughts!
