Some Thoughts from Joe about Tricksters!
Trickstered! or Will the Real Eobard Thawne Please Stand Up?
Well, Tricksters was everything I’d hoped it would be and more. Mark Hamill’s 1/2 Hannibal Lector, 1/2 Jerry Lewis Trickster was a shtick-spewing force of awesome. Watching Barry’s animosity toward Wells escalate propelled us ever closer to the showdown. But then, we got hit by the biggest trick of all! Harrison Wells ISN’T Reverse-Flash! Eobard Thawne is! But…wait. Isn’t Harrison Wells actually Eobard Thawne? Well, not exactly. Some time-travel, some future tech, and a big ol’ reveal as the yellow cowl is removed to reveal…Matthew Letscher?!
Here’s perhaps the biggest reason I cannot get enough of The Flash: Just when you think you’ve got the show figured out, here comes a clever, brilliant curveball. Every new twist and wrinkle feels as organic as they do surprising. How many of us found ourselves asking “Why didn’t they find Harrison Wells’ DNA at the crime scene?” Well, now we have an answer that makes total sense, but also puts everything we know about Harrison in a new light. Some shows struggle when introducing such complex themes into their overarching plot, but The Flash continues to be slickly written…a show where nothing’s accidental and the only thing we can be sure of is that we only know part of the story. And oh, what a story it’s been. I cannot help but wonder, after all these amazing shocks and twists, what on earth could they have left for the season finale? I for one cannot wait to find out.
Don’t forget – no episode this week (the week of April 6, 2015). The next episode is April 14, 2015, titled “All Star Team-Up”.
We hope you enjoyed our interview with Matt Letscher (AKA: Eobard Thawne!)
