Rick Cosnett Confirms His Return To ‘The Flash’

Thanks to Flashpoint, anything can happen. No show is safe. No cast member, dead or alive is safe. As some of you may have seen from previews of Arrow, Laurel Lance has resurrected herself. And now it looks like another another deceased member of the CW/DC Universe is coming back from the dead, but in what capacity? Leave it to Rick Cosnett to say anything far from the truth with the answer. In fact, he was quite blunt when he Tweeted that he was coming back to The Flash. Will fans see Eddie Thawne stitched back together again thanks to Flashpoint? Or will this be some other version of Thawne from another Earth? It’s anyone’s guess.

Looking Back At The Top 10 Nerdy TV Shows of 2016

screen-shot-2017-01-03-at-9-57-39-pm

It’s a terribly kept secret that there’s too much good TV to watch; for every series you manage to finish watching, there’s two more already queued up and ready to binge. It’s an embarrassment of riches, as in you’re embarrassed when people ask you if you’ve seen the hot new show and you’re forced to answer “no” because, hey, there are only so many hours in a day… That’s what you need semi-professional critics for. In reviewing the last 12 months, and looking at the plethora of sci-fi, superhero, horror, and other genre TV shows, we’ve paired it all down to a Top 10. Here, in our humble estimation, are the Top 10 Nerdy TV Shows of 2016! (more…)

It’s almost ironic to think that fans had to wait for the two of the fastest superheroes to come back from their winter break. But the wait is almost over, and to celebrate their returns, The CW has debuted trailers for both Supergirl and The Flash. One trailer shows how one hero spent too much time in the sun while she was away, while the other shows that a certain hero hasn’t learned anything from his mistakes.

It’s the season to be jolly. But of course, on The Flash, Barry finds a way to put everyone in a sad state. With Savitar running around (some pun intended), can you really blame him? Yes and no.  The episode, which is titled, “The Present,” can be interpreted many different ways. It’s a bit of a present to the fans for bringing back some popular characters, especially another version of Mark Hamill‘s The Trickster (who looks very much like another character he’s known for). Another way to look at the title is a meaning of time – as in the past, present, and future. Once again, time is knocking on Barry’s door, but in a direction he’s never gone before.

This week, the DC CW Universe unleashed their 4 (really 3) night crossover titled Invasion! Each night was a ratings high for each of the shows as each night Supergirl (not really), The Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow had to work together to save the world from The Dominators. Each episode was jam-packed. You can see our reviews for The Flash (here) and Supergirl (here) for our thoughts on the individual episodes.

“Skirt!” Best. Line. Ever. This week’s episode of The Flash continued the “Invasion” crossover happening on all of the DC Universe/CW television shows. Even though the event began with Supergirl, the core of the story is in this episode. There were aliens, team-ups, superhero poses, conflict, BIG conflict, and an ending that is satisfactory, but will leave you tense enough that you have to watch the rest of the shows to see what happens next. But this review is all about The Flash. That being said, it will be a long time before this writer calls any other episode of The Flash “the best.”

In every season of The Flash so far, there’s always been that moment when the villain’s true face is revealed after several episodes of threatening behaviour. In season one, it was when the Reverse-Flash was unmasked to be Harrison Wells, and in season two, it was when we learned that Jay Garrick and Zoom were one and the same. For season three, the big (bad) question was who is Dr. Alchemy, and in a last minute twist on Tuesday night’s episode, the secret was uncovered much earlier than expected, even if the secret identity of Alchemy was pretty much as we expected.

Not since the time Iris tried to pull Barry out of the Speedforce has an episode of The Flash been so emotional with all of it’s ups and downs. Coincidentally, both episodes were directed by Kevin Smith. Titled, “Killer Frost,” this week’s episode brought out a side of Caitlin Snow that has only been glimpsed upon, but not to this extent. And, boy, did she do some damage. As her powers break through the surface, feelings that have been deep inside risde up as well. Rifts are created and the team becomes divided again. Just when Barry thinks the Flash is the last thing his friends need in their lives, Iris finds a way to tell him that it’s the exact opposite and that he’s needed more than ever.

One of the coolest things about the “Arrowverse” is that almost every day this week, you get to see a DC TV show on the CW. On Mondays, you get a new episode of Supergirl. One Tuesdays, you get a new episode of The Flash. On Wednesdays, you get a new episode of Arrow. Finally, on Thursday, you get a new episode of Legends of Tomorrow. It’s great because no matter what, you’ll be able to experience a DC adventure almost every day of the week. However, when shows return after their mid-season break, there will be some shifting around.

Cisco was totally right when he said, “Ignoring the problem does not get rid of it. You’re gonna have to face it.” It applies to everything, but in particular, last night’s episode of The Flash. Titled, “Shade,” it seems that the team can’t ignore the inevitable that’s going to happen to Wally. Like a fixed point in time, it happened, and whether or not Barry tried to alter that timeline, it’s wanting to correct itself, finally leading to this scenario. No matter how hard the team tries to keep Wally from turning into his Flashpoint self, it looks like its going to happen. Their fear of what the results will be don’t go unwarranted. Just look at those before him, their either dead of have been seriously hurt in the process. Just because Wally is on team Flash doesn’t mean he’s immune to the effects of what will happen.
