Barry and Ralph take different approaches to finding the remaining metas before DeVoe gets to them; Ralph’s cavalier attitude frustrates Barry and the two clash over what it means to be a hero; Breacher returns to ask Cisco for a favor.
After a month away, The Flash returned tonight with a perfectly pleasant episode. There was nothing glaringly or frustratingly wrong with the hour, but it wasn’t the most exciting one either. “Null and Annoyed” was a very soft return.
Since we last checked in with Team Flash, Cisco has built S.T.A.R. Labs’ version of the Danger Room, which Barry and Ralph have been using to train for their inevitable battle against the Thinker. Their plan is for Ralph to shapeshift into Barry, because the presence of two Flashes should confuse the Thinker, right? Right? But let’s ignore the weak plan because that isn’t their biggest problem. No, that honor goes to Barry and Ralph’s working relationship. Barry’s growing increasingly annoyed with Ralph’s need to joke about everything.
