İnsan yağıyla ağırlaşmış dumanın arasından gökyüzüne baktım ve Tanrı orada yoktu. Soğuk, boğucu karanlık sonsuzluğa doğru gidiyor ve biz yalnızız. Yaşamlarımızı yaşıyoruz, yapacak daha iyi bir şey bulamıyoruz. Mantığı sonra uyduruyoruz. Karanlıktan doğuyor, kendimiz kadar cehennemlik çocuklar yapıyor, karanlığa gidiyoruz. Başka hiçbir şey yok. Var oluş rastgele. Uzun süre baktıktan sonra hayal ettiğimizden başka bir anlamı yok. Bizim yüklemeyi tercih ettiğimizden başka bir manaya sahip değil. Bu dümensiz dünya muğlak metafiziksel güçler tarafından şekillendirilmiyor. Çocukları öldüren tanrı değil. Alın yazısı onları kasap gibi kesmiyor, kader köpeklere beslemiyor. Biziz. Sadece biz.” #rorschach
My first review on this page! Hype! But not as hype as this episode was for me. I thought the ending of season 3 was masterful and I really couldn't wait season 4 to see how the team reacted to Barry being gone this long. I was quickly disappointed when they made no use of that plotline and just had Barry come back very quickly. I honestly hated the first episode this season, but I have now had a week to dwell on it.
This episode was a delight. I am so glad they are going back to season one with its lighthearted humor. It made this episode much more enjoyable than it could have been with Iris and Barry's funny couples therapy and Barry's suit malfunctioning being some great highlights. The later reminded me of Spiderman Homecoming which is a win in my book!
My only complaints are that the villain, kilg%re, was forgettable and there isn't any real tension at all making the show seem somewhat dull. Next episode is going to be another villain of the week kind of thing but I want to see more of the thinker since he is our first real non speedster main villain in what is now 4 seasons. He reminds me of a crippled brainiac, which is in no way an insult.
Overall it was a pretty good episode but it didn't have enough to it to make it a truly great episode. It is certainly better than S4E1. I just feel like the show has taken one step forward and 2 steps back. It took everything great about season 1, but forgot everything amazing from season 2, and 3 to some extant.
