Oh look. So what have we learned?

"I'm assuming you know who I am (The Flash) and what I can do (Fastest Man Alive)"

Well, yes, we all torrented the pilot. But the plot, Barry Allen mooning over the girl he grew up with since the age of ten, and gets treated as "just a friend", combined with a hostage taker taking a woman who he insists will be his girlfriend, might generate a little tonal criticism – is one just the exaggeration of the other, and is that intentional? Will the more recent criticism of the "friend zone" be addressed in the show, or just accepted as a clichéd plot point?

But we do get the first TV continuity appearance of Snart… or Leonard Snart… or Captain Cold. Played by Wentworth Miller in the TV show… hence the cold breath.
