The Flash Review: Season 2 Episode 1 "The Man Who Saved Central City"
The Flash Season 2 Episode 1
"The Man Who Saved Central City"
In the season premiere, Barry Allen (GRANT GUSTIN) has chosen to protect the city on his own - until a meta-human named Atom Smasher (ADAM COPELAND) attacks
Everything about season 1 of The Flash was great, not only did we get a conclusion to the Reverse Flash/Harrison Wells Story arc we also were left with a great Cliff Hanger. Episode 1 of Season two started a little confusing with the battle between Captain Cold and Heatwave vs the Team of Flash and Firestorm……..was that a Dream Sequence or an Alternative Universe? Then we jump 6 months down the road with no explanation of the events of the Singularity. However once we get through the awkwardness of the first few minutes, Flash hits its normal charming stride.
With that Episode 1 starts with the loss of one half of Firestorm in Ronnie Raymond. Raymond sacrifices himself to help Barry close the Singularity. It will be interesting to see how they will introduce the new half of firestorm to combine with Martin Stein. Then the introduction to the main villain of Episode 1 Atom Smasher……I was ok with how he was portrayed, best part coming from this season of Flash, if someone is bad or if someone dies it’s not the end of that character. Got to love the Multi-verse! Speaking of the Multi-verse it looks as this season we will soon be introduced to the Meta-Human powers of Cisco, I can’t wait to see how this expands on the show to help explain different characters. (Side note: Does anyone else think that the hidden gem of this show is Cisco?) And finally the arrival of The Original Flash Jay Garrick
Episode 1 is the start of something great, but it had to pack a lot of information and storytelling into one episode. I think it was for the most part well done and I give Flash………One Thumbs Up
