After last week’s “Death of Vibe”, we take a break from direct attacks by Cicada…and yet we learn some key things about the big bad of the season along the way. More important, we learn just why Nora has a problem with Iris…and we learn that there was more fallout (figuratively and literally) from that satellite incident last season than we had thought.

Okay, what did you think when the Strength Force, Sage Force and Still Force were introduced? Were you impressed…were you a little worried…did you decide to sit back and see how it played out? We are now ending the first major arc in THE FLASH that features the new forces, and are getting ready to jump straight into a Force Quest…but before we go there, let’s talk about how the status quo has changed, in the conclusion of “Faster Than Thought”.

We’ve now been introduced to our big bad of the season, Cicada…but there are more surprises ahead. If the title of this episode doesn’t get your attention, I don’t know what to say…except that there are even more twists ahead in what promises to be a very good season of THE FLASH!

The annual CW DCTV crossover won’t air until December, but it’s currently being filmed and story details are slowly beginning to trickle out. This year’s theme is “Elseworlds”. As you can see from the poster, Barry Allen and Oliver Queen will be swapping superhero identities, but that isn’t the only Flash-related surprise from the story. See the photo below, though be mindful of spoilers.
As can be seen here, John Wesley Shipp is back as the `90s Flash. It isn’t known how much he’ll be appearing in the story or what exactly he’ll be doing, but it’s great to see him back in the role and the suit again.
The crossover episodes will air from December 9th to 11th this year, and will include The Flash, Arrow, and Supergirl.
DC has posted the official preview pages for this week’s issue of The Flash, and you can see them at The AV Club. In it, Barry and Detective Burns are trying to find their way out of Heat Wave’s mindscape because of his infection by the Sage Force. Check it out at the link!
