TV Review: The Flash S1E11 The Sound and Fury

theflash_full_costumeAfter his encounter with The Rogues, Barry must face off against a new villain, Pied Piper.

The Flash‘s latest episode is a rather interesting one. It’s focus isn’t so much the Flash as it is Harrison Wells, focusing on his mysterious origin and background.

The episode introduces us to the Pied Piper, the latest villain to enter the DC television universe. He turns out to be a former colleague of Wells and the two had a falling out. He even warned Wells about how his experiment might go haywire, which it did, creating all the meta-humans.

All of that shows off not just Wells’ history, but we see him show off his speed powers, and there’s some revelations. Not just to us the viewer, but also some of the other characters who suspect something is up. And something is, as Wells has issues using his abilities, with them shorting out in a way.The episode is a pretty solid one adding to the world that is The Flash, and that’s always welcome. It also hints we should be expecting some movement in the whole Reverse Flash angle soon too. Can’t wait!
