After Eddie is kidnapped by the Reverse Flash, Iris discovers Barry is the Flash. Also, General Eiling comes back and seems to have been mind controlled by a gorilla with genius intelligence and psychic powers.

I’m glad Iris is finally able to join Team Flash. Also that she calls Joe out on keeping it secret from her for so long actually being less safe for her in the long run as that’s all I think about whenever Flash or Arrow feels that someone isn’t allowed to know who they really are. Maybe this will stop happening as much in the future? Maybe?

Gorilla Grodd actually makes a for a pretty formidable villain. I wouldn’t mind seeing him as more of the main villain for a season at some point. But something tells me I’ll have to read some of his comics to get some truly great storylines involving the character. Though this was is pretty good itself, it still feels like more of a filler episode right near the end of the season. Wait, didn’t Arrow Season 1 have a similar episode near the beginning? Is this just a copy of that?

SCORING:

+6: Decent episode, though nothing fantastic

+1.5: Grodd is a great villain

+1: Iris is finally where she belongs, on Team Flash

-1: Weird place for a (mostly) filler episode
