Text to my Daughter: Why “The Flash” Episode 12 —”Crazy for You” — Rocked!

Hey, Adriane! Just finished watching this week’s episode of The Flash and “ran” the gamut of emotions: pleased to see the continuation/dev’t of the Firestorm storyline; thrilled by the reappearance of Rogue Pied Piper (even though Momma thought it unbelievable that Cisco would’ve been so stupid as to free the prisoner … I thought it believable because of guilt he felt about locking Ronnie into the particle accelerator) …

stupefied by the awesomeness of the intro of yet ANOTHER Rogue (Peek-a-Boo); amazed by the intro of Linda Park as romantic rival to Iris West (in the funny books for half my life, Linda Park was the romantic interest/wife of Wally West, the former “Kid Flash” who became THE Flash from 1985-2009, after Barry died saving the universe in “Crisis of Infinite Earths” …

… having original Barry Allen die was shocker 30 years ago, until all great again when Geoff Johns brought him and Green Lantern back to life a few years ago…whew); and FREAKIN’ GEEK-OUT CHILL DOWN MY SPINE at appearance of Gorilla Grodd, who, besides Reverse Flash & Captain Cold, is one of the TOP 5 Flash villains EVER; I know, sounds silly, but Grodd’s of the most original super-villians since Barry Allen led comics into the “Silver Age” in 1959…very cool, and we’ve still got 11 episodes left in the season!

Gorilla Grodd appears in Epilogue of "Crazy for You" (Episode 12) of "The Flash,"
