Barry Allen’s done his fair share of hard time, so after seeing the first images released from next week’s Flash midseason premiere, we can’t help but wonder what he’s doing back in a cell. Granted, it’s a S.T.A.R. Labs meta cell rather than a crib in Iron Heights, but he sure looks like he’s on the wrong side of it. There’s actually quite a few questions we hope this much-anticipated new episode, “The Flash and the Furious,” answers for us when it airs next Tuesday, including what the deal is with Nora and Eobard Thawne. I mean, I realize kids become rebellious as they come into their own, but this is taking things a bit too far. Of course, you can say that about Cisco and Caitlin as well, who apparently bandy about the idea of a metahuman cure this episode. I get that all superpowers aren’t created equal and some can destroy lives, but we’ve seen enough superpowered mutant movies to know where that path leads. I mean, is NOTHING sacred with this crew?!
The Flash returns on Tuesday, January 15 at 8 p.m. (7 p.m. CST) on The CW.
