What I’m Watching: The Flash

The Flash: Season 6, Episode 5 “Kiss Kiss Breach Breach” (B-)

I guess it’s a good thing that Barry and Iris found some time to jet off to a tropical vacation before Barry’s impending death, and they certainly seemed relaxed both heading into it and coming back from it. I love that Cisco created an artificial intelligence version of Barry that he called B.A.R.I. to calculate and predict what Barry would do if he were there, to the point of knowing his actual favorite movie rather than the one he first said when asked the question. Naturally, Barry being away would bring a huge crisis for Cisco in the form of Gypsy’s death. I didn’t expect to see a guest appearance from actress Jessica Camacho since she’s busy with both “All Rise” and “Another Life,” and this was much more about Cisco needing to prove his own innocence after a bad-news alter ego of his had actually tapped into his white noise machine and framed him. It was ultimately a positive bonding experience for him and Kamilla, a very cool-under-pressure ally who deserves to be made a full-time member of Team Flash. Ralph and Killer Frost proved to once again be a strong duo, showing up just in the nick of time to save Joe and Nash from death. Nash wasn’t eager to share what he was working on, but it’s good to see him finally be open and upfront about the fact that, thanks to his multiversal frequency knowledge, he’s on to a solution to save Barry, good news we could all use!
