As one of the most anticipated series of all time, The Flash finally returned from its one মাস hiatus. I have seen the teaser and promo pictures, and read the official synopsis. The Flash has been accused for going rogue as well as being send into the pipeline? Iris's potential new lover?? Most of all, the appearance of the first female speedster ever??? Well, now after watching the sixteenth episode, I couldn't help myself to write my positive and negative opinions about it. (+ is for positive and - is for negative.) Let's start right now!

'Well, good job on the cell, Cisco' - Barry Allen

Note: This প্রবন্ধ may often refer to অনুষ্ঠান- অ্যারো (2012 TV series) since The Flash is a spin-off of Arrow, and I believe the latter serves as a template for the Flash, especially the character arcs.


'Oh, why do the crazy ones always name themselves?' - Cisco Ramon

+ Eliza Harmon a.k.a. Trajectory, the first female speedster, is an amazing villain-of-the-week.
1. I like her Jekyll & Hyde persona (which reminds me of Willem Dafoe's link).
2. She was a brilliant but tragic scientist of Mercury Labs. Dr Caitlin Snow only gave her 3/8 components to create Velocity 9 but she could finish it herself. With that high-level intelligence, she was still underpaid and understaffed in her job, making her research six months behind, and that because she was being too perfectionist.
3. Her Hyde side really amazed me. First, she nicknamed herself 'Trajectory'. Second, she was able to put The Flash into the pipeline, an action that other evil speedsters never did before. Third, her evil goal was solely creating chaos, not desiring money, power, অথবা revenge.
4. Though, for being a truly fascinating villain, I wish she did not die too quickly, her demise is one of the most memorable death in the series.

But then, still better be dead than becoming a terrible glowing blue-skinned character (yes, I'm pointing at আপনি Electro and Dr Manhattan).

+ The word Velocity 9 (V-9), the drug for speedsters, kind of dominated the script if আপনি noticed. I have already known that it can make the user faster than before but highly dangerous, as the series had explained in the earlier episodes. Trajectory clarified আরো on how V-9 worked; it makes a normal human could run even faster than a speedster, as well as side effects such as addiction and creating বিভক্ত করা personality. Moreover, when someone overdosed it, s/he ran incredibly fast that his/her lightning turned blue, but his/her cells kept degenerating that ultimately his/her body disintegrated.

'Are আপনি going to মুষ্ট্যাঘাত your dad?!' - Harry Wells >.<

+ Jesse Wells is the সেকেন্ড spotlight of this episode. She had to adjust herself in Earth-1, after leaving everything without goodbye, and already becoming an agreeable member of Team Flash. I প্রণয় her friendly and open-minded character. She is intelligent but not the annoying-socially-awkward-geniuses template. Especially to know that she has the prospect to become a speedster. B-but why leaving so soon, Jesse? Just because you're tired of your overprotective daddy and wants to explore Earth-1???

'If আপনি like to do the things আপনি know that we shouldn’t do. Then Barry, I'm perfect. Barry, I'm perfect for you.' - Harry Styles

+ I প্রণয় the উদ্ধৃতি of Harry Wells when he forbade Barry using V-9. 'You want to take a shortcut; is that right? আপনি want to take a shortcut? Remember this. আপনি lose a chunk of your humanity every time আপনি compromise your values.' So true! And although Barry sarcastically replied, 'Sorry, that's really good coming from you', Harry's respond still hit the spot, 'So don't be like me.'

'Hey, here's a প্রশ্ন for you, purely scientific, was she good-looking?' - Cisco Ramon

+ হাঃ হাঃ হাঃ for Cisco's purely scientific question when Barry had fought Trajectory, 'Was she good-looking?' Really, Cisco? XD Nevertheless, he is still the most relatable and comical person in Arrowverse.

'I'm charming enough, right?' - Scott Evans

+ Scott Evans, the new editor-in-chief of CCPN, first appeared in episode 14 and at that time I highly prejudiced him. Seeing him again, he turned out to be not dull as I thought he would be. I understand why he didn't trust The Flash, particularly when he explained the reason to Iris. Furthermore, the fact that he thought he and Iris were having a তারিখ in CC Jitters is unexpectedly nice (clearly not a WestAllen shipper here). Hopefully he will be half as good as the late Eddie Thawne. আপনি know, he is not one of the main characters.

CAUTION! This is not a crazy disco dance.

- The idea where 'The Flash has been compromised' was great until I realised that the writers could never create a good plot, when it is about the hero was not actually gone rogue but the bad guys made frauds. *cough* অনুষ্ঠান- অ্যারো Season 3 *cough* Iris West, the সেকেন্ড principal character in the series, should be the one who handled this situation, but since Season 2, her stories, including this episode, were always felt like only as subplots.

Even Bella রাজহাঁস can jump off the cliffs. Meaning she ran faster than Mach 3.3???

- Now I only know two modes of The Flash:
1. He teased bad non-speedster Meta-humans দ্বারা saying, 'Catch me if আপনি can', since he is super fast.
2. Lamenting himself that he is not fast enough to save his বন্ধু and the city so he has to keep training to go faster and faster and faster. (<-- I prefer this one.)
Now, he's the সেকেন্ড one. In fact, it's only his role. Luckily his whining stopped when he at last reached Mach 3.3 in order to stop Trajectory.

Frillion-wajillion-bazillion times we have this type of scene portrayed দ্বারা various characters from Arrowverse.

- The daddy-daughter issue thing is so outdated. It has been repeatedly used in Arrowverse. Quentin-Laurel, Malcolm-Thea, Ra's-Nyssa, Noah-Felicity, Joe-Iris, and now Harry-Jesse. This time, Jesse was mad at her father because he would do anything to protect his daughter, even if it against morality. Sounds familiar? If আপনি have also seen অনুষ্ঠান- অ্যারো Season 4, 'yes' will be definitely your answer.

'Screaming, crying, perfect storm. I can make all the tables turn.' (credit to Taylor সত্বর অথবা else I will be sued. XP)

- Two times being deceived দ্বারা the main villains who acted as Team Flash's mentors. Seriously, writers of Flash? আপনি could not make a new, better major plot twist for this season?? It is so clichéd, banal, trite, corny, and any other synonyms of lacking originality. No wonder that the end of this episode is link.

Conclusion: 'Trajectory' had a possibility to become one of the most interesting episodes of season 2 but it failed to meet my expectations. I blamed the writers for holding out the identity of Zoom. As I have written previously in link, I hoped they revealed the man behind the mask of the speed demon in 2x09 'Running to Stand Still'. Later, in 2x14 'Escape From Earth-2', I wished for the same since the episode is about Zoom. Eventually, they exposed his identity in the very end of 2x15 'King Shark' and the audience had to wait for a মাস to know more. Sure, 2x16 gave আরো information about him but the hype of Zoom's identity and intention are gradually loosening from me. (★★★☆☆)

The Flash returns on Tuesday, 29th of March at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT.
