Review


The episode was a good lead in to the finale and a second season, since all of the meta humans were able to escape thanks to Leonard Snart. It was also fun to see The Flash team up with Arrow and Firestorm to finally stop Wells. However, it leaves a major question mark on the finale. Either way, it was a good episode and deserves a 7.5 out of 10.
