Tonight we saw the origin of The Flash and that the good doctor is hiding something, from the future. Barry has been trying to come to terms with what happen to this mother for years and now with his new abilities and what he has seen others capable of, he is more determined then ever to save those who need saving. We even got a nice crossover with Arrow in this episode to help push things along and tie things together. What did you think of the pilot for this new series? Check out this season look ahead and the synopsis for next weeks episode.
Barry (Grant Gustin) escorts Iris (Candice Patton) to a university gathering honoring scientist Simon Stagg (guest star William Sadler). When six gunmen storm the event, Barry changes into The Flash and tries to stop them. While he does save a man’s life, he passes out before he can capture the robbers, which frustrates him. As Dr. Wells (Tom Cavanagh), Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) and Cisco (Carlos Valdes) scramble to find out what’s wrong with Barry, Joe (Jesse Martin) comes down hard on Barry for taking the law into his own hands and risking his life. Barry realizes that it wasn’t six gunmen but a metahuman named Danton Black (guest star Michael Christopher Smith), who can make multiples of himself. Meanwhile, Iris becomes even more intrigued by the “red streak.”
