What I’m Watching: The Flash

The Flash: Season 4, Episode 21 “Harry and the Harrisons” (B)

After an episode that ended with the introduction of a mysterious speedster and also Marlize leaving DeVoe just as his plans were about to come to fruition, we had an entirely DeVoe-less hour that found the team trying to figure out a few other problems to help them mount their best defense yet. Iris wanting to expose DeVoe through journalism feels a bit idealistic, but I suppose there’s something to be said for getting the public rallied against a cause when they know metahumans to be a very real thing. I’d hope that he wasn’t actually walking around in his own skin but rather as Ralph, unaware that anyone would be looking for him, but it’s good to know that the city wants to help and that they may just be able to use something against DeVoe that he didn’t see coming. I love that they reached out to Amunet, who was posing as a southern poker game runner. Katee Sackhoff is always fantastic, and her fanciful fake British accent adds to the charm as she chews scenery as the latest villain to be moderately rehabilitated, not completely changed but open to less deadly resolutions against our heroes. That eye snake was definitely creepy, and at least it won’t be back to threaten anyone. Cisco getting the Council of Harrys together was a recipe for silliness, but at least it managed to be entertaining while it lasted, and may provide some hope for Harry’s future.
