Its that time of the week, flash fanatics. This episode of The Flash on The CW focuses on the redemption story of its newest character Ralph Dibny, Elongated Man. The following review is for season four episode six, “When Harry Met Harry.”

 

RECAP

Last time, the women stole the spotlight from the scarlet speedster. Killer Frost finally returned with a large bounty on her head. Amunet attempted to hunt down Frost during both Iris and Barry’s bachelor party. Both parties ended with a disastrous night, but another day closer to the big wedding day. We discovered that the two will be getting married in three weeks, but for those of you keeping up with the crossover news, none of this was new information. It was a rather entertaining, but plot hole filled episode.

 

Episode 5X06 Review “WHEN HARRY MET HARRY” 

Barry and Ralph argue while the mugger prepares to fire.

Ralph Dibny has somehow been a successful superhero. The opening started off with Barry giving some Oliver Queen advice to Ralph. On their way back to Star Labs, a mugger decides to try and rob the two. Barry and Ralph get into a minor argument. The mugger, with no patience, opens fire on Ralph, but in an unfortunate turn of events for the criminal, the bullets ricochets right off of Dibny and fly back into a rather painful spot for the mugger. A highlight of the episode is how Elongated Man has developed overall through the course of only three episodes. His ego is constantly getting in the way on his staircase to being a superhero and it certainly adds something that has been unseen in the rest of team flash. The character’s cocky personality and over the top frat party type attitude puts even Barry himself in danger. Ralph learned to accept that his job has consequences and being a hero does not always mean defeating the villain. So far, Ralph is yet to disappoint and we can only hope that he will never achieve that point.

Clifford Devoe got into an argument with her assistant. Nothing has been going to plan. As per usual with the villains on The Flash, the overall atmosphere and effects used during the Devoe scenes have been astonishing. Each scene is just draw droppingly high in quality. The character is certainly headed in the right direction. The only question that I have is, is he more steps ahead than previous record holder, Adrian Chase?

Multiple versions of Harrison Wells from season three.

Harrison Wells has been quite busy trying to make friends outside of Earth one’s team flash. The only entertaining company to Harrison Wells outside of Earth one is himself. Actor Tom Cavanagh has begged the writers to let him play as many different versions of the character as possible. Writer Todd Helbing is also a fellow die hard Rick and Morty watcher. Taking inspiration from the season two Rick and Morty storyline, he introduces the new Council of Wells. Earth two Harry attempts to assemble a team of Wells that can find Devoe. Not all councils have ended well in the Arrowverse however. The Time Masters exploded at the end of the timeline, but this council has a chance to not go down in flames. The last time a Harrison Wells met a Harrison Wells, one ended up dead in the long run. The DC multiverse is massive, and it will be interesting to see what the writers and actors are able to bring out in the character. I personally am hoping that we see Earth X Harrison during the crossover later this month.

Black Bison was the chosen odd ball of the week. Episode six had a strong focus on the heroes. This resulted in an overall weak villain this episode. I did not expect much considering this

villain appeared at the end of the bronze age of comics. First appearing in Firestorm (Volume 2) #1 1982, this villain can control inanimate objects that represent historical figures. One thing I really respect about this interpretation was the fact that the character had an entire change in gender for their onscreen adaptations. I personally enjoy when  DC television shows make changes from the comics, but there are definitely some questionable changes at times. This interpretation worked great compared to other massive changes that characters have been forced into overtime.

The Council of Wells successfully located Clifford Devoe. Barry and Joe finally confronted the main villain of the season, only for the audience to discover that Clifford’s wife is The Mechanic and he is indeed paralyzed as I predicted back in episode four.

Overall, this was another great episode. The characterization and overarching story is working really well so far this season. We can only hope that the show maintains this speed and keeps pumping out great episodes. It’s worthy to note that the new additions to the cast have been phenomenal so far. I could not have been happier about this considering last year’s newcomers were quickly written off at the ending of the season.

 

Predictions

Last season, we saw one of the unaddressed newspaper headlines read “Joe West Honored at City Hall.” I’m positive we will see this outcome soon come into sight. The Thinker has been known to mess with the Flash’s personal lifestyle, so I’m expecting the same outcome, except the result will affect all of team flash. 

First official photo of Matt Ryan on set of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.

We also got some of the first photos of Arrowverse’s favorite John Constantine. Previously, his show was canceled on NBC after an incredible thirteen episodes, but The CW has attempted to bring back beloved actor Matt Ryan. I think it’s unlikely we will see Constantine appear on The Flash, but he has been confirmed to join the Legends in episodes nine and ten of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. An animated hour movie is also coming to the CW Seed online early next year.
