CHECK : The Flash season 7 episode 3 Mother

TV magazines

Mom, the season finale that is no longer a season finale, but still feels like a season finale, is a perfect summary of The Flash in its later seasons. Some parts are excellent and hide the best of the series’ climax; other parts are bad, boring, and make you look at your watch when you should be checking your heart rate instead.

Team Flash is trying to save Iris who is having seizures. Barry makes a radical decision about his powers. Eve finally reveals herself and begins to carry out her evil plan. A long lost friend may be the key to saving the world. Joe is there for more than a full minute; the crowd buys lots.

Mom follows up on last week’s “Speed of Thinking” and shows the impact of Barry’s turn to utilitarianism. His friends, previously clueless after their failed attempt to stop him, soon realize that the old Barry is back, and they do so because they perceive his desperation to save Iris. You can tell by his face that Barry isn’t afraid because Iris used him to stop Eve; it’s because he loves her and is terrified of losing her. Grant Gustin is great again, and even though he’s been playing Barry for seven years, he’s back after playing a very different Barry last week, and he does an excellent job. It’s through his performance that we see this isn’t just another fast Barry robot; it’s in his face, in his voice, in his eyes. And Carlos Valdes plays this change beautifully, going from cautious and anxious to siding with his friend in the blink of an eye. The actors really do this show, and they feel so good about their roles that they can stretch their performances so much.

This familiarity is very important to the mother because it returns Barry to his position as champion of the immediate good. Seeing what robs others of their emotions, especially Iris, he gives up his speed and disables the artificial Speed Force, deciding that no Flash is better than a cold-blooded Flash. Now he can’t sacrifice anyone like he just did with Kamila and Singh, but he can’t do much to stop Eve either. And Eve, in the really big angry way, drags her to the mirror to tell her so, show her helplessness and insist that she’s the good guy. She also reveals her grand plan: she will copy all of Earth’s inhabitants and replace them with mirror copies to end man’s inhumanity to man. It’s kind of awkward, the show never really built Eve’s purpose, instead letting her run around destroying the Black Hole technology. She even refers to Ramsey Rosso, a character who will remain the antagonist throughout the season, and the comparison doesn’t do her any favors; Ramsey was much more compelling, and his villainy escalated naturally rather than being handed out so that an ill-defined villain could do a few things in the season finale. But it works because Barry feels defeated, powerless to stop what is happening. Then the universe throws him a bone.


As mentioned at the end of Speed of Thought, Harrison Wells is still alive. And that’s the original Harrison Wells from Earth-1, the one who was killed and replaced by Eobard Thawne. Wells explains to Barry that by destroying many Wells look-alikes, Nash left behind a small energy that brought the only remaining Wells back to life. And now Wells can travel through time, which is convenient because he has all the answers Barry needs to save the day. According to Wells’ theory, the Speed Force is never really dead because it is a part of the universe. This means Barry can reconnect and regain his strength naturally. And the secret, not surprisingly, is Iris. When Barry touches her, he feels the spark he had years ago, the spark that let Iris know he was the Flash. She is now his link to the Velocity Force, a constant she has always represented on an emotional level. Wells confirms that Joe was right last week; Barry’s real strength is his heart, and his heart is still with Iris. Another strength of the series is finding new ways to explore the central themes; the previous episode did this with ethical issues, Mother did it with Barry and Iris’ love for each other.

So everything went according to plan to bring the previous season and the Eve series to a successful conclusion. Then Mama drops the ball with one of the worst storylines this side of Alias season 4 – everyone is now a zombie, but not quite. Frost and Vibe join the Flash to fight Eva, whose mirror power gives her even greater speed than Barry’s, but this results in nothing more than Eva’s army blasting the heroes with ray guns. In other words, it places blandly, and the visuals are lifeless and dull, lacking any flair – even a CW reference – and looking like one of those late ’90s shows that aired on UPN on Sunday afternoons. Why not use Eve’s mirror powers? Have him jump in and out of any reflective surface, piercing Barry and disappearing before he can react. Remember the fight at Liber8? It was a million times more inventive than any action in Mom, and the awkward nature of the climax takes the wind out of the episode’s sails. The resolution is even worse: Iris tells Eve that it’s okay to be good, to which Eve gives up her plan for world domination and goes into the Mirror, swearing with her fingertips that she’s not bad at all anymore, and so on. Is this what we’ve been looking forward to all year? Is that why the Ramsey Rosso story broke? Maybe it’s better that Mama doesn’t make it to the end of the season, because when it’s over, you’re just glad the show can move on to something more interesting.

Otherwise, there are ups and downs with the mother. Bringing Harrison Wells to Earth-1 was brilliant, and I was glad Barry and the others finally got to meet him. It’s the ultimate statement of the kind of character Nash could never have been. Cisco’s reaction to him is honest; they don’t technically know each other, but they still feel like old friends. And he has a happy ending, he can live with his wife again. I guess that means he won’t be a regular anymore, but the door is open for him to come back. I hope he takes it, Harrison Wells needs the show. She also needs Caitlin Snow, and as much as I like Frost, I was glad that Caitlin was the character played by Danielle Panabaker for most of the episode. And Joe had to do something for a change, it wasn’t much, but I was tired of him being sidelined. On the other hand, Allegra and Chester are still redundant, and I’d love to see them go away to make room for good characters like Joe. And Sue Dearbone and Ralph feel stuck too. Sue isn’t as annoying as usual, but she is distracting from the beginning of the episode. With Ralph, they’re clearly trying to get around Hartley Sawyer’s firing, but it’s so ridiculous and stupid that I wish they’d just write it up and say he went somewhere else to do something else. I wonder if they should remake the long-haired guy and keep him in the show. I’d rather they didn’t; they’re so full of characters now that he’d probably get lost in the shuffle anyway, and Sawyer has grown into the role so well that I don’t necessarily want to see him replaced. And I’m immensely grateful to Sue for turning down the offer to join the team.

Mom is a mixed film, with some good moments and performances watered down by a terrible climax and too many unnecessary characters. It’s more a relief than a satisfaction that the Mirrorverse story is over; if the rest of the season is more focused, it could move forward.
