The Flash – The Masks of the Pink Loss of life Half 2
“The Masks of the Pink Loss of life Half 2” wrapped up the villain arc of the Pink Loss of life reasonably shortly. With some assist from Grodd and Batwoman, Flash was capable of take her down. Other than that, I did’t discover a lot to rave about- not even Iris’s being pregnant reveal. Let’s get into it.
Pink Loss of life/ Batwoman
Javicia Leslie’s portrayal of The Pink Loss of life was a gem for this prolonged episode. She completely entertained because the crazed and campy comedian foe of Staff Flash. Taunting Flash and utilizing Grodd to amplify her telekenesis was very cool to observe. I have not at all times been a fan of the ladies villains on the present, however she got here through.
Giving Lesie the chance to don the bat go well with another time was additionally nice. Seeing her swoop in to assist Flash after which swing her cape as she left was an superior sight. Possibly in the future, in one other a part of the DC Universe, we’ll meet Leslie’s Batwoman once more. I am all for it!
Grodd has at all times been one in every of my favourite villains. Absurd in each method, he is without doubt one of the most entertaining of Flash’s rogues. I had lengthy forgotten Grodd’s talents so when he was revealed to be the one amplifying Pink Loss of life’s powers, I cheered! (I used to be so glad it wasn’t Cecile).
Grodd’s purpose for serving to Pink Loss of life and for turning on Flash was fairly compelling as villian tales go. He tried the hero route, and it left him on their lonesome. That was one thing Barry actually needed to gapple with. Ultimately, Grodd got here through for Staff Flash.
Cecile and Joe have utterly perplexed me. One minute they’re leaving, then they are not, then one in every of them is leaving. The present is ending, so I am unable to perceive why they would not simply journey off into the sundown collectively. Cecile is an empath and no matter else she has morphed into. I am certain Barry or Chester might provide you with some tech that might enable her be linked to STAR Labs or Central Metropolis if her powers had been that necessary to the workforce. Joe spent years as a single mum or dad. It is exhausting to think about he would volunteer to be one once more.
Allegra and Chester have lastly determined to be grown ups. I do not like how we acquired there, however I suppose it is a factor now.
Khione and Mark…… simply, why?
The ONE Different Factor I Was Pondering
We have all recognized a being pregnant reveal was coming. This has been years within the making. This season, Barry tells Iris she’ll be pregnant in three months. Then Khinoe blurts out that Iris is pregnant at Joe’s bon voyage get together. How impolite! Iris ought to have been capable of give that information on her personal phrases, and it will have been good for Barry and Iris to share that second first and THEN reveal it to the workforce.
The workforce already is aware of that Nora and Bart exist within the future- they’ve met them. So, to take away the non-public nature of the being pregnant announcment simply appeared all improper. It is a comedian ebook present so I count on comedy, however having Khinoe blab the information after which feign innocence was removed from humorous.
Barry and Iris have had years of coronary heart ache and trauma. They’ve additionally had their share of humorous moments. This second ought to’ve been theirs to cherish it doesn’t matter what tone it took. The necessity to at all times shoehorn supporting characters into events made for our most important heroes is a development that appears to maintain on trending beneath this present runner. Not a fan of that alternative. Not one bit.
