What I’m Watching: The Flash

The Flash: Season 4, Episode 5 “Girls Night Out” (B)

This episode was a bit silly in its structure, but I’m not sure I would have expected anything else from the pretty unforgettable bachelor and bachelorette parties for Barry and Iris. It’s always good to see Felicity, who was the only one truly full of enthusiasm of the bunch gathered for Iris’ celebration, as Caitlin was rightfully concerned about distracting factors and Cecile was thinking about her own future. I don’t really understand how Killer Frost works and how she sort of allied herself with Iris, and it’s even more puzzling to me that Iris stopped her from killing Amunet since she’ll obviously be back to make their lives miserable. Fortunately, that’s great news for us viewers, since Katee Sackhoff, veteran of “Battlestar Galactica” and “Longmire,” is completely terrific with a very strong fake British accent in the performance that I think allows her to have the most fun she’s ever had on screen. Her power is pretty cool too, so I do hope she’s back to go toe-to-toe with our characters. The boys had a less productive night, with Ralph hijacking Barry’s bachelor party and landing them in jail. Barry getting drunk thanks to Cisco’s elixir was entertaining, and he was totally useless. Joe got to have an interesting parenting moment with Cecile’s daughter, the undercover strip cover dancer penning a book on the female experience, which should prove an interesting topic to revisit. The prisoner whose tears are like opioids is intriguing, and the Thinker is clearly invested enough in him to hover around in plain sight to make sure he completes his designated task.
