What I’m Watching: The Flash

The Flash: Season 6, Episode 12 “A Girl Named Sue” (B)

I was wondering where Ralph had been since it felt like it had been a while since we saw the stretchy detective thanks to the crisis and all that. Just like an earlier episode this season, he got to lean entirely into the private eye life in this hour, searching desperately for the missing Sue only to finally meet her and realize that she was more than capable of taking care of herself. They bonded pretty well and made a great team, but she had to go ahead and ruin that by turning out to be someone more concerned with getting what she wants than being honest with the people who are nice to her. I’m sure that Ralph is going to have a tough time getting her out of his head, and she’ll likely pop back up in the way that other recurring villains like Ultraviolet keep doing. Barry continues to be clueless about the fact that he’s not with the real Iris, even if he’s tracking her unusual behavior more than usual. Inside the mirror, Eva is expressing a lot of anxiety about being trapped there forever with Iris’ unhelpful optimism. Fortunately, Iris is clever, and hopefully she’ll be able to convince her new ally that they can get out of there and fight whoever it is that is pretending to be her on the other side. Nash appears to be hallucinating the other Wells, something that hasn’t yet led to anything problematic but seems destined to have much more relevance as he finds himself unraveling as a result.
