Critic reviews for The Flash & The Furious
The Flash's mid-season return might not have been super strong when it comes to driving the season's narrative forward, but it did do its job by laying some important groundwork.
This episode was about giving second chances. And even though Barry believes that there is still some good in Eobard, there's no way this is going to turn out good.
Bringing a true cure into the mix could open things up to a multitude of opportunities...In a show where the formula tends to be somewhat repetitive, it's a clever and potentially refreshing move.
While the main plot serves to give Nora the lead on her own adventure and expands the character's emotional depth, the subplot revolves around Cisco and Caitlin/Killer Frost arguing about whether a "cure" for metahumans should be explored.
The Flash returns from its winter hiatus with a rather subdued episode that at times plays more like a presentation on the topic of superhero ethics than a fully-realized hour of the show.
