The continued development of the many Forces is at work in this finale.

Spoilers ahead. You’ve been warned. For more read the review.

Josh Williamson and Howard Porter’s “Year One” story arc in The Flash has been exciting and enlightening.

That’s only a portion of the story though and I highly recommend you read the whole thing today!
