TV Review: The Flash S2E12 Fast Lane
Barry and Wells work on a way to close the breaches but all of that is a side project as a new meta human named Tar-Pit arrives. Iris also confronts Wally about his drag racing and gets tied up in to that world, putting herself in danger.
The Flash is a bit of a mixed episode with some of it being really good, and some of it being so so. I can’t tell if some issues stem from the budget constraints, but the drag racing scenes in particular this season feel more like a cheap version of other shows or movies that have focused just on that.
This episode’s villain is also a bit meh in ability as well as his look. Especially how he’s defeated feels a bit like of a rush in the resolution.
I think the big thing about the episode is how it moves Wells’ story along, especially how he’s playing both sides. That’s finally moving along and there’s a big twist in this episode where the cards are laid out on the table.
We’re getting focused again on Zoom, and this episode shakes things up a bunch as far as that.
This definitely isn’t the best episode, but it’s not bad either. It’s perfectly adequate and entertaining. It’s just not nearly as good as what’s come before.
Overall Rating: 7.4
