“P.O.W” Review of S7 E16 of THE FLASH

Godspeed is back, or at least Godspeed’s clones are back. They may be fighting each other for now, but they have already proven to be more than a match for Team Flash. We may have some hope in this episode with the appearance of John Diggle, who is showing up in several Arrowverse programs. But, how that all plays out is yet to be seen. Wanna know more?

“Masquerade” – Review of S7 E13 of THE FLASH

Last episode we gave a fond farewell to Cisco and Kamilla. But, we were also introduced to a new danger to Team Flash, tied to Cecile. She is trapped in a mindscape, along with one other critical member of the team. This episode includes some great acting on the part of Daniele Nicolet (Cecile Horton) and Brandon McKnight (Chester P. Runk). And, we see the return of another great character. You won’t see a lot of Flash in uniform, but you will see a great episode. Wanna know more? Follow us after the jump!
