STAR Labs has a morgue. Henry mumbles. The underlying difficulty of this ep is that it is boring. Barry’s plaintive entreaties annoy and Jason Mewes cameo amuses. This was not mighty fine. Iris won’t stop inserting herself into events and conversations. Doesn’t she have a job she should be at? Enjoyment is elusive and meaning is indistinct in this ponderous ep. The speed force gives Barry a new costume. Iris will not go away. Henry finally decides to come home. Iris makes everything all about her. Snow is given a choice and Zoom has a metahuman army.
“After the first accident.”
“This didn’t tip any of you off that he might be secretly evil?”
“You get behind me.”
“Major rage issues.”
“The poor dumb bastard.”
“He’s after me. Again.”
“You saw what I chose.”
“Smush us all into chunky sauce.”
Kurt is like Adrian Mole: forever obsessed with his childhood love Taylor. It is more obvious how obsessed and damaged Kurt is. Borden is a 1D fan. Reade shows up. Tasha is angry. Sense is cruelly dismissed. The official is the baddie, like duh. Jane does something she shouldn’t. Mayfair is in trouble. Where does Kurt go for his grooming? Salon school?
“Can’t imagine a life like that now.”
“Only slightly less dysentery.”
“You ice me out.”
“We could use some of this to kill someone.”
“You shoot him, we’ll shoot you.”
“Sorry I blew up your house.”
There is no high spirited fun in this jail just dour unpleasant drama. People have palpable disgust for Macarena’s dumbness and uncontrollable, frightened, miserable whimpering. I feel only blistering scorn for her. This was relentlessly mediocre and I had no personal investment in her nitwittery. It’s belaboured how evil Zulema is and how long a reach she has outside the jail.
Yolanda befriends Macarena and is nice to her. Then Yolanda is horribly killed. Macarena learns that Yolanda was sent to jail for stealing 9 million and it is hidden somewhere out there. Macarena finds the clue to where the money is. But what will or can she do with it? This was okay in places but I have no interest in further exploration of the emotionally inappropriate relationships, sex, guards, inmates and a possible planned escape.
“Be careful what you say around here.”
“I hope she dies soon.”
