Flash trains so he can get faster than the Reverse Flash, who kicked his butt in the last episode. Captain Cold returns with an arsonist partner, Heatwave (not the 70′s funk band). Heatwave has a mega-flame gun to complement Captain Cold’s ultra-ice gun.
Flash’s dilemma is whether to keep hard training (because evil Dr. Wells wants him to) or to go fight the Icy Hot villains. Guess what? He eventually decides to go fight them. This results in another odd confrontation where Flash runs around his foes real fast instead of just grabbing up their weapons of mass climate change. I get it, if the fights happened in real Flash-time they’d be over much too quickly and plus we’d all get strobe-induced seizures from watching them. But it’s getting increasingly hard to believe that the Fastest Guy Alive cannot quickly settle a dispute with a man whose costume is a fuzzy parka.
