The Flash (The Man in the Yellow Suit) review

Dr. Wells really?!

Tonight, The Flash introduced the man in the yellow suit. The man in the yellow suit is called the Reserve Flash or Professor Zoom.  The Reverse Flash is the Flash’s arch nemesis and killed Barry’s mother, Nora Allen. Tonight, on the Flash, we learned that Reverse Flash is Dr. Wells. “Or is he?”

It is Christmas time, and Barry Allen is upset about Iris and Eddie. The Man in the Yellow Suit comes back to town for a tachyon device. Tachyons on a theoretical molecule that can travel through space and time in science fiction. Barry tries to beat the Reserve Flash but gets epically beaten to a pulp. Dr. Wells and Detective West devise a trap to capture the Man in the Yellow Suit. Can Barry stop the Reverse Flash or will he fail and get killed?

Before talking about the revelation of Dr. Wells being the Reverse Flash, the writers should get brownie points on having Barry Allen grow some balls and telling Iris about his feelings for her. That’s a positive mention along with the special effects because they were awesome. I believe that Dr. Wells isn’t the Reverse Flash. He knows who he is and where he is. I think it is Eddie Thawne from the future. The Flash can time travel and it is one of the biggest predicaments about writing continuity and mystery for this show. The Flash cannot break the time barrier yet but he will. The Reverse Flash has a vicious nature with his taunts of Barry Allen which made me get cheerful inside.  Honestly, I can’t wait to see how they use the Reverse Flash in future episodes of the show.

Robbie Amell, Stephen Amell’s brother, was introduced as Ronnie Raymond a few weeks ago. He appeared again with showing his fire capabilities last week. He comes to save the day. He burns the Reverse Flash which causes the villain to flee. His appearance is scruffy looking and it is visually appeasing to see him turn into the Human Torch AKA Firestorm in the DC comics. I really hope they use the character more because he is super cool.

Overall, the Flash episode “Man in the Yellow Suit” was great. It is a fun episode and my mom despises Eddie now. I don’t like him either as a person but as a character he is a big dick. I give the episode a 4.5/5.
