What I’m Watching: The Flash

The Flash: Season 7, Episode 14 “Rayo de Luz” (B)

I wasn’t sure whether there’s some kind of deal in Grant Gustin and Candice Patton’s contracts this season that means they’re not supposed to be on set as often, because I understand the desire to start trying to procreate, but that doesn’t mean that they need to sneak off all the time to have sex privately or go away on vacation. This was, I suppose, a strong endorsement of how this show could look without its recently departed series regulars, continuing to push Allegra and Chester closer together as Allegra was able to make a startling discovery about herself and complete a transformation thanks to the subversive efforts of her cousin Esperanza. It’s still not clear whether she’ll be able to control her powers in the future, but she’s going to be a superb asset to the team going forward now that she has some concept of what she can do. It was great to see Sue again, and I would definitely like to have her around all the time, especially if Ralph doesn’t have to come with her and she can just continue to show off her theatrics and make snarky comments while always saving the day with style. As expected, Kramer wasn’t just a villain and has a relatable backstory, and Joe was exactly the right person to help process what she went through. I’m not sure where things go from here, but I would appreciate the opportunity to see the entire Team Flash come together to take on whatever enemies remain for the rest of the season.
