As implied by the title of this episode, this one is all about mixed signals, whether literal, or emotional and romantic. As The Flash battles Kilg%re, here a dangerous metahuman who can control technology, Barry struggles to reignite his six-months-gone relationship with Iris, and we see an interesting reversal in Cisco and Gypsy’s relationship as well. Join me after the super-speed techno-organic jump for my thoughts on “Mixed Signals!”
Reborn and recharged, The Flash is back with its season four premiere. Our hero has returned from the Speed Force for a season with lots of surprises and shocks, including new characters and villains like Blacksmith, Hazard, Breacher, the Elongated Man(!), and our new big bad, Clifford DeVoe, the Thinker! In the meantime, how has Team Flash (or is it Team Vibe, or Team Kid Flash?) fared without Barry? And what brings our hero back? Find out after the Speed Force jump in my review of “The Flash Reborn!”

Why are the Inhumans so hated? Is it because Marvel has forced them on us because Fox keeps the mutants out of their film and television hands? Is it because we’re getting them instead of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.? Is it because their big screen debut had such lousy distribution? Who are Jack Kirby’s least-loved creations, and why are they so hated? The answers, and a review of the first two episodes, after the jump.
