FLASH SPOILER Review: Episode 4x21- "Harry and the Harrisons"




The Flash (4x21) - "Harry and the Harrisons"
Written by:         Judalina Neira & Lauren Certo
Directed by:       Kevin Mock

Let’s cut the fat out of this review from the start… The main plot is a pretty standard help a villain so they’ll help you story.

The big thrust of this episode is a debate about the power of having information vs the power of spreading or not spreading information.  Harry and Cisco are running into problems trying to get help from the other Harrison Wells’ of the Multiverse as they feel that their knowledge gives them power.

Amunet admitted to hiding the nature of Caitlin’s powers from her and using a fake device to have control over her while Caitlin hid her true intentions for enlisting Amunet’s help against DaVoe to try and get her powers back.

Lastly, and most importantly, Barry and Iris are debating the merits of telling the entire city about DaVoe.  They come out on the side of telling the city and by the end of the episode we get the impression that this tactic will work out for the team with two episodes to go.

Katee Sackhoff was enjoyable as Amunet again, and there were plenty of fun moments with Harry and Cisco as Harry rediscovers his emotional intelligence as his intellect abandons him.  Harry even comes up with a possible key to defeating DaVoe, his love for Marlize.

The final battle is taking shape and barring some sort of cop out ending or story telling disaster it’s been a good story that’s been bogged down by fluff but that’s a conversation for after the Finale.  My hope is that there’s no more filler or otherwise I might find myself reevaluating whether or not The Flash has outran its shelf-life.



Three Things We Learned This Week:

1)      Amunet’s power isn’t a control over metal rather a connection to a specific metal she was exposed to during the Accelerator Explosion.
2)      Speaking of misunderstanding someone’s powers. It seems Caitlin’s powers are still more complex than she believed.
3)      Central City is now aware of DaVoe’s plans. Providing Barry a chance to return to the Police.

Three Questions:

1)      I asked a few weeks ago about Iris but it now dawns on me to ask, how do any of team Flash get by as only Joe and Cecile seem to have paying jobs?
2)      What was the metal Amunet became connected to in the blast?
3)      What’s this silliness about the key to Harry saving his intellect being “inside him?”
