The Flash season 1 finale review

The first season finale of The Flash on The CW came at the fans with such an intensity of story that I kept double checking I was watching the same show, but sure enough, after establishing several character stories, after doing a few cross overs with Arrow, and showing us Barry Allen’s (Grant Gustin) journey to becoming the man we know today, the first season of The Flash created one heck of a story line and season ender that impressed me.

Let me explain:


The Wolverine warns about spoilers

During the first season of The Flash, we learned about the death of his mother, of his father being incarcerated for her death, and Barry’s life-long pursuit into finding the truth about her murder. Along the way we experienced a few bad guys that would give Barry the run for his money. We learned who Dr. Wells / Eobard Thawne (Tom Cavanagh) really was, what his mission truly is, and how and why things came to be.

We also saw the man who played The Flash back in the 1990 television series, play Barry’s father, Henry Allen (John Wesley Shipp). I thought that was pretty cool.

Along the way we were introduced to Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller), Gorilla Grodd and a bunch of other bad guys, as well as a few cross over episodes with Arrow, which added a wee bit of outside life to the story.

We were also introduced to Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker) and the guy who wears the coolest tee-shirts, Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes).

But last night, the season finale surprised me in many ways.
