In a special Christmas episode, Weather Wizard, Captain Cold, and the Trickster all get together to try to kill the Flash. How festive! Also, Iris finds out she has a brother and doesn’t know if she should tell her father, Joe.

Mark Hamill is great in everything and I do wish they had enough money in the budget to make the Trickster a full-time enemy for the Flash, but I’ll really settle for any episodes with Hamill’s Trickster because he’s just such a joy to watch. Maybe he could team up with Damien Darhk and both shows will have to join together for a season? Okay, that’s too much, but it would still be awesome in my opinion. The two greatest villains in all of Arrowverse fighting side by side to destroy the world.

It really bothers me that none of the superheroes on these shows don’t see how much damage they do to people by not telling them they’re a superhero. Then again, that usually causes those people to then become superheroes. Maybe they’re just doing it to hog the glory?

SCORING:

+9: Very entertaining episode

+1: Mark Hamill is the best Trickster that ever was

-1: Barry should tell Patty he’s the Flash!
