This season was my least favorite season.
They gave us another villain that is a speedster, but thankfully they’ve confirmed a non-speedster villain for next season. Also, there was too many good speedsters: Barry, Wally and Jesse. Jesse went away, but I think Wally should too. Maybe go to a university in another city or something.
Killer Frost wasn’t what I thought she would be. Why does she change to evil just because of her meta powers? They didn’t explained that. I didn’t like her outfit either, it looked like a cosplay.
About the finale, I think HR technology was too unrealistic. It felt like Deus ex Machina. Nevertheless, it was a good finale. I loved to see Jay Garrick again and Barry being trapped in the Speed Force was unexpected. I just hope they don’t keep him away for too long, because I can’t stand Wally.
In addition to that, I think they should have used the classic Savitar, from the comics, instead of a version of Barry in a weird suit.
The Flash has lost a few viewers this season. It has too many speedsters on the team (Barry, Wally, Jesse) and, after two seasons which the main villain was also a speedster, fans were hoping for something different.
One of my many complains is Wally. I think he is one of the most horrible characters in the show, along with HR. The best thing to do is for him to go be The Flash in another city. Everybody loved Harry last season, and why they’ve decided to change him for HR is just incomprehensible.
However, what really disappointed me was the musical crossover episode. They have been announcing it for months, they have the most talent cast, but what could’ve been epic, was wasted.
As a fan of musicals, and after Buffy’s Once More With Feeling, I had great expectations for this. I wanted to see a superhero musical, but they not only decided to make the whole story sort of a “vintage dream”, it only had like 6 songs in the whole episode. I kept waiting for more songs to come, all in vain.
For me, it would be great if the villain made them sing in the real world. It would be a delight to see Supergirl and The Flash fighting and singing about their frustrations, or Cisco and Winn becoming bros and singing about it, or many other possibilities. It was really frustrating.
So, The Flash, why do you hate me? And especially, why would you destroy my superhero musical dream?
