Rating: 8/10

Ronnie and Professor Stein are permanently merged together in one body. Unable to control their powers, they’re killing people without meaning to. The Flash must put a stop to them before they hurt anyone else. Also, Joe enlists Cisco in helping him to find the murderer of Barry’s mother. Meanwhile, Barry tries to date someone in between being the Flash.

The dating plotline was kind of weak, though it had some funny moments so I’ll forgive it for being a little out of place and not really going anywhere. Actually, this whole episode was kind of slow, as if they were trying to stretch out a single episode’s worth of plot into two episodes, but maybe I’m just imagining things. It was decently dramatic and had some action, though not quite as much as I would like considering they’re filling my time with Barry’s dating life, which actually wasn’t that bad to watch, but still had a few places that could have been cut without any issues to any plotlines, whether the main one or a side story.

SCORING:

+8: Decent episode though lacking in places
