And, so we return to another annual Flash Christmas episode! This year it’s called “Don’t Run,” although, luckily for us, Barry pretty much ignores that advice until the very final moments of this midseason finale. Barry’s decision to follow his own advice actually sets up a really great cliffhanger to tide us over until January, so I guess we can forgive him for that.
The Flash has had a great number of villains that have crossed Team Flash’s path over the years since the show’s #DCTV debut. Like the comics that inspired them, some are more memorable than others, with some that will stick forever in your memories. Eobard Thawne (in his various incarnations) and Captain Cold are two that I have especially enjoyed seeing adapted to the small screen. As a fan of Battlestar Galactica, when Katee Sackhoff was cast in the role of Amunet Black, I was 1000% on board.
