Did You Spot?: The demolished “Grodd” cage at STAR labs gives us hope a certain hyperintelligent super- ape will soon be causing trouble in Central City.
Highlight: Even if The Flash pilot’s finale hadn’t followed 30 minutes of awesomeness, it still would have impressed, depicting a scene we’ve waited our whole lives to see – the Flash running circles around a tornado until it unravels. Can a giant boomerang be far behind?
Influences: The pilot recreates one panel from the Flash’s first appearance ( in Showcase Comics # 4), in which Barry’s newly acquired super- speed makes him witness a waitress’s tray of food tumbling in slow- motion.
Best Line: Barry: “Lightning gave me... abs?”
