THIS is what a Christmas episode should be. Just enough sappy fun to evoke the season, but not so much as to take away from what makes the series work. We see some significant reveals about the backstory of Alchemy…some serious danger…and foreshadowing of events that will have us waiting with bated breath for the next episode in late January 2017. Want to know more? Just follow us after the jump!
This episode is unique in a lot of ways…with some significant developments in both the personal and heroic lives of Team Flash. And, for once there is no epilogue…and I don’t think that has ever happened in any episode of the Flash in any season so far. What we get instead is…something pretty important, and you’ll have to follow us after the jump to find out more!

Warner Bros. TV schedule is up for Comic-Con International. The Flash TV Show Panel will be Saturday, July 23 at 5pm in Ballroom 20:
Parallel universes…and doppelgangers…and man-sharks, oh my! The second season of The CW’s highest-rated series had more than its fair share of twists and turns, but none compared to Barry Allen’s jaw-dropping decision to go back in time and save his mother from his arch-nemesis, Reverse-Flash, a decision that called the entire timeline into question. But fear not, fans, you won’t have to wait until the fall to start getting answers to some of your most pressing questions, as the cast and creative team behind the show make their annual appearance at Comic-Con to begin giving fans insight into the show’s highly anticipated third season.
Violett Beane is set to return as Jesse Wells in Season 3 of the show. No word yet on whether she’ll be the Earth-2 Jesse we know or from another timeline, or whether we’ll see her as a speedster anytime soon. (via ComicsAlliance)
Warner Bros. showed a scene from Justice League featuring Batman (Ben Affleck) and the Flash (Ezra Miller) to the press, and CinemaBlend describes the scene, which shows the first meeting of Bruce Wayne and Barry Allen. The tone is reportedly a bit lighter than most of Batman v. Superman, and the scene tells us a few important things about the cinematic universe’s Barry Allen, and more. Spoilers of course.
DC is re-releasing a bunch of its early Barry Allen stories from the 1950s and 1960 in the first volume of a new series of softcovers, Flash: The Silver Age.
Collecting the earliest adventures of The Flash from SHOWCASE #4, 8 and 14, and THE FLASH #105-113! Witness the origin of The Flash, the debuts of his Rogues Gallery, including Captain Cold, Gorilla Grodd and Weather Wizard, and the introductions of fellow heroes Kid Flash and the Elongated Man.
Stories by John Broome and Robert Kanigher with art by Carmine Infantino, and a cover by Michael Cho.
Presumably this series replaces the “Flash Chronicles” series that previously reprinted the early Barry Allen Flash stories in softcover trade paperbacks and got up to 1961. I like to think that someday DC will actually keep going with one of these reprint series and we’ll get past the mid-1960s.
