Rating: 7.5/10

Felicity and Ray show up in Central City to find help fixing Ray’s suit. The Flash and Joe are trying to figure out how to investigate Wells without letting anyone else know, like Cisco and Caitlin. Also, a new supervillain is attacking the city…with bees!

This was a fun episode. Also, kind of intense at a few different points, one being when Barry is knocked unconscious by bees. The bee angle is a little weird at first, but actually makes for some pretty good action sequences.

Though I like seeing Felicity and Ray show up it feels like their presence is a tad wasted as they don’t really do anything that other characters couldn’t be doing. Like they go on a double date with Eddie and Iris, but it could easily have been some other couple. Actually, is there another couple at this point? Huh? I guess they needed them after all.

SCORING:

+8: Pretty good episode despite it juggling many plotlines

-0.5: Just a tad disappointed the only reason for Ray and Felicity to be there is that they don’t have any other couples for a double date
