What I’m Watching: The Flash

The Flash: Season 6, Episode 15 “The Exorcism of Nash Wells” (B-)

I’m not so big on episodes like this since they don’t serve a greater purpose, expelling one threat that hadn’t really come to fruition just yet simply as a building block for future storylines. Eobard Thawne’s return was not a bad thing since he’s always been one of the better nemeses for this show, and instead now he’s been defeated while all of the other versions of Harrison Wells theoretically live on in Nash’s head. We finally got the link to Allegra, that she was the doppelganger for Maya, Nash’s protégé who plummeted to her death on one of their archeology adventures. It was helpful that Barry was able to use Thawne’s efforts to make him angry or devastated to channel positive memories instead, and that he’s planning to use that and Nora’s journal to create his own new speed force. Things were getting tense with the rationally-minded Caitlin, and hopefully the original brain trust of Barry, Cisco, and Caitlin can work together to figure out a new way to power Barry’s speed. It was comforting to see Joe and a Barry running not particularly fast take down the meta Sunshine by cutting off the one thing that she needed in order to use her abilities. The fact that Kamilla is now just like Bizarro Iris and working for Eva is disconcerting, especially since Barry and Joe still refuse to pick up on the many signals that the most dangerous threat in their midst is currently posing as one of the most important people in their lives.
