THE FLASH Season One: What Have We Learned? (Part Two)





Okay… When we left off in Part One, Barry had received his powers and the mystery of “Who is the man in the Yellow suit?” had only begun to be established.  Here’s part two of our “What have we learned?” Review Flash of Season One.

1)      Is Wells trying to stop whatever caused the Red Skies in 2024? Or is he trying to make sure Barry survives them?
Answered: Neither.  Eobard's plan had nothing to do with the red skies other than that was the day he traveled back to the past to kill Barry as a boy.
2)      How fast was Barry going at the end of the episode if he could outrun Farooq's blast?
Still unsure.
3)      When I paused to write some of this review I noticed one of the stories on the future newspaper and it begs this question: How on Earth is there a Wooly Mammoth at the Central City zoo?
No answer at present.

1)      Is he (Barry) doing this (thinking at super speed) consciously or has he noticed yet?
Answered: If he hadn't noticed yet, by the end of the season he does.
2)      Has Ronnie been conscious for ten months and not told Caitlin?
Answered: Yes and no.  At this point, Dr. Stein is in control of Ronnie's body as their fusion was imperfect.
3)      THE EMOTIONAL SPECTRUM?! Are you kidding me?! Where's Hal?
Answered: Still Missing.

1)      What is the nature of Wells' relationship with Reverse Flash?
Answered: Wells was Eobard Thawne in disguise.
2)      How long until Barry telling Iris he loves her nukes her relationship with Eddie and how bad will the fallout be?
Answered: Quite a while and pretty substantial since Eddie goes into a bit of an emotional crisis.
3)      Is Max Mercury associated with Mercury Labs?
No answer at present.
4)      Who was the other Speedster in Barry's home the night he was murdered?
Answered: Barry, but it got even more complicated than that.
5)      What did Reverse Flash and/or Dr. Wells need with the device from Mercury Labs?
Answered: He was harnessing the Speed Force to regain his powers.

1)      Why is Wells protective of Barry?
Answered: He needed Barry to punch through the time barrier.
2)      Is Eddie still curious as to why Cold would go after Caitlin and might this lead to him finding out that Barry is The Flash?
Answered: No, but he learns soon enough anyway.
3)      Is it safe to assume that Barry is down to one suit now?
Answered: Yes but it seems Cisco makes more.

1)      What does Joe suspect Wells is involved in that has him investigating Wells?
Answered: Joe suspected Wells of working with the Reverse Flash in Nora Allen's murder.
2)      Have Barry and the Team graduated to holding all the criminals they capture in the Pipeline or is Hartley a special case?
Answered: Hartley seemed to be a special case.
3)      What is the "Endgame" Wells is preparing for?
Answered: Using Barry to travel back to the future.

1)      How far is too far when it comes to the treatment of the prisoners in The Pipeline?
This was never answered but it seems that Joe at the least was opposed to the prison.
2)      What's Hartley's next move and will he try to hook up with Cold and Heatwave?
No answer at present.
3)      What has happened to Grodd?
Answered: At this point, Grodd was starting to attack people in the sewers.

As the saying goes, “Business is about to pick up.”  The show has found its grove and now that we know Wells is the Reverse Flash and has an "Endgame" the season long arcs are starting to come to the forefront.  Next week, we’ll deal with Firestorm, time travel and the return of the Trickster.
