Storyline

Now incarcerated, Dr. Wells (Eobard Thawne) proposes a plan: use the awakened Particle Accelerator to create a stable worm hole that'll grant Barry and himself each their deepest desires, respectively a living mother and a 22nd century return trip home. The risks are great. Tampering with time will cause permanent and unpredictable changes, let alone a chance at mistakenly spawning a black hole on Earth. In the meantime, Wells suspects that Cisco might be a meta-human, and Eddie (apprised of his rather unique, coincidental position) fulfills a personal wish. Written by statmanjeff

Quotes

Dr. Martin Stein: We're dealing with a lot of big scientific ideas today, but you, Mr. Thawne, might be the most interesting thing here at S.T.A.R. Labs.
Eddie Thawne: Me?
Dr. Martin Stein: What are the odds that Dr. Wells would travel back in time and get stuck in the exact same city as his great-great-great-great grandfather, working in the same profession, the-the same building, and that part of his plan to get home would mean that he'd have to preserve and protect your life. That makes you this rare thing that-that-that no scientist can ...

Compelling and emotional marvel
28 May 2015 | by jhdenneraccSee all my reviews

Oh, how I wish I could give this episode a 15 out of 10! This was to my mind one of the most compelling finale's to a series that I have ever seen. I have been truly and increasingly astonished by the remarkable writing of the script of The Flash.

My wife and I were on the edge of our seats throughout the episode, but also throughout the series and especially in the latter half.

The one thing I would like to commend the writers on, is their ability to draw the viewer into the story emotionally. Credit has to go to Grant Gustin as well, because the writers can write in such a way all they want, but if the character's portrayal of their ideas doesn't cut it, all that effort would be for no cause whatsoever.

I was most definitely drawn into the series emotionally. I really felt every emotion with Barry / Grant.

This last episode had a fair deal of heart break and I will admit that I shed more than one tear throughout the episode. I was in utter anguish with Barry.

Emotion, however, is certainly not the only aspect that one would want as a viewer. The viewer wants to be drawn into the story as well.

THAT I WAS!!!! There were moments during the series in which I was absolutely flabbergasted for a moment (To think of one, Reverse Flash revealing his NOT DR Wells face outside of Barry's home when he realized he got stuck a few episodes ago, another one is an unexpected, but very important (how can I put it) "very loud sound" in this last episode). I was kept guessing throughout.

Supporting actors: Who didn't love Cisco Ramon???? He was just super amazing and his whole character was so awesomely written! His facial expressions and his portrayal of this super passionate scientist were just awesome. I loved everyone, but admittedly I hated Iris at times. Eddie Thawne. What can I say? WHAT CAN I SAY??? AND THAT CLIFFHANGER!!! Overall I would give the first season a 9.5 out of 10. I LOVED IT!!!! I LOVED IT!!!! I LOVED IT!!!! The last time both my wife and I got so enthralled in a series, was when we were watching the series MISSING, with Ashley Judd. Unfortunately that one got canceled after only one season with 10 episodes, and that on an awesome cliffhanger.

As a last thought, I have a question, though. Once the cliffhanger gets resolved: THEN WHAT, WRITERS????? How on earth are you going to manage to pull off the same suspense, emotion and fun in a second season????? How can this not become just an average superhero series going forwards?? I think the writers might have outdone themselves in Season 1, but if they can manage to recreate all these elements two seasons in a row, I might just start calling it one of the best series ever. I look forward to Northern Hemisphere Fall for Season 2.

Good luck and

T H A N K

Y O U

for writing such an awesome season!!!!!!!!!! :)
