The Flash Review: Season 2 Episode 9 "Running To The Start"

The Flash Season 2 Episode 9
“Running To Stand Still”

When Mark Mardon AKA The Weather Wizard (guest star Liam McIntyre) returns to break Leonard Snart AKA Captain Cold (guest star Wentworth Miller) and James Jesse AKA The Trickster (guest star Mark Hamill) out of Iron Heights, Barry (Grant Gustin) must stop these rogues from taking over Central City during Christmas.  Meanwhile, Joe (Jesse L. Martin) and Iris (Candice Patton) meet Wally West (Keiynan Lonsdale).

Its the mid series finale and the christmas episode. What better gift than the return of Captain Cold and Mark Hamill as the Trickster. The Weather Wizard decided to breakout both Snart and Jesse from Iron Heights in order to come together to kill The Flash. Snart decided to let Barry know about the plan, we are getting closer and closer to Snart turning into legend he is to become in the future. 

The Trickster decided to hand out gifts while dressed as Santa to all the kids, these gifts all contain explosive. The Weather Wizard and Trickster give The Flash a choice use his power and all those kids die or let them have their way with The Flash. Harrison Wells and Cisco come up with a plan to save Barry.

In this episode Joe finally finds out that he has a Son named Wally West……We we finally got to meet the guy who will play Wally in future episodes,

Final Thoughts:
Wentworth Miller may be the best at playing Captian Cold but the original Trickster Mark Hamill is still perfect for the role of James Jesse.  We got to see his inner Joker come out and how great was that performance. As for Captian Cold we are slowly seeing him turn into a hero, I absolutely love how they are slowly bringing Captian Cold along.

We learned more about Patty Spivot and why she joined the Meta Human tasked force, she was truly out for blood until The Flash was able to talk her out of it. Hopefully this will be the last time we have to deal with this, I think she is a great supporting character, however I am not sure if I can deal with this if its a weekly ordeal.

We also saw at the very end Harrison Wells make a deal to save his Daughter by promising to increase the powers Barry in order for Zoom to get more powers

Finally Joe learns about his son Wally West, I am just intrigued whether or not he will have the speed force or is this just another example of the Multi-verse.

Any episode with Captain Cold will automatically get two thumb up. I can’t seem to get enough of this character. and I also can’t seem to get enough of the trickster.
