Going into this season, I had heard that there were a number of people that weren’t fans of it. Whether it is because they always felt the show was in decline, or if they just had issues with this season. Which puts me in the minority because…I really enjoyed this season!
I thought Nora was a great addition. She was the focal point for a lot of things story wise and I really enjoyed her. I was a little disappointed that Ralph didn’t get that much to do and he has quickly become one of my favorites on this show, but he still left an impact. I have always enjoyed Caitlin since the beginning, but once Killer Frost entered the picture, she became significantly more interesting. I love the dynamic and relationship between the 2 personalities. As for Killer Frost by herself, I love her. I mean I have a crush on her, but yea she’s great as a character too.
I had noticed that in terms of characters, the Cicada gets a lot of criticism. The first Cicada was enjoyable for me. Appropriately creepy and intimidating, I liked him. The second Cicada I will admit is more interesting psychologically speaking and does pose a more physical threat. Glad to see the Reverse Flash, he is always great (all though I will admit, I’m not completely sure how he showed up on Earth X and how he got from there to being captured in 2049. I don’t even think they explained HOW he got captured). There were a couple of small baddies I liked, including Rag Doll, Goldface, and Icicle.
The story for this season I thought was pretty good. There were a couple of annoyances, mainly when Barry AGAIN makes a big decisions without consulting anyone before he does it. All though he and Iris do get in a big confrontation about it and hopefully these kinds of decisions will be over.
So, yea. I actually really enjoyed this season, and I know there are a lot of people that might disagree with me on this. I still say Season 1 is my favorite if that makes anyone happy.
