The Flash Season 4 Episode 3 " Luck Be a Lady" Review
Warning : Potential Spoilers Ahead.
Star Cast :
Regular - Grant Gustin, Candice Patton, Carlos Valdes, Danielle Panabaker, Jesse L. Martin, Tom Cavanagh, and Keiynan Lonsdale.
Guest - Sugar-Lyn Beard.
Direction : Armen V. Kevorkian.
This week's episode "Luck Be a Lady" showcases that how hazardous a bad luck can be, as The Flash and his team is hit by a string of bad luck. We have a mysterious new metahuman, Hazard (a.k.a. Becky Sharpe), who can turn her luck at the expense of the people around her. It also reveals the cause for the creation of new metas (kudos to Barry Allen who was the sole reason behind this) as they were hit by the dark matter of Speed Force.
The writers of the Flash were in Terrific form as they deliver one more winner in this season. The ill-fated sequences like Flash tripping by stepping on marbles or Priest in the church allergic to spices or Jessie breaking up with Walley work for the larger part due to the tight writing. Becky Sharpe played by Sugar-Lyn Beard steals the show with her funny antics especially during her intro.
It is good to see Tom Cavanagh back in action as Harrison Wells, I hope that he will stick around for some more episodes. On the flip side, it is not such a memorable one, the reason is the mellowed approach towards baddie. After Killgore in the Mixed Feelings, we have one more non threatning villain in the series
1. The whole Barry and Becky conversations,
2. Harrison Wells is back,
3. Small reference about Earth-2 Atlantis while describing Break up Cube,
4. Humor quotient.
1. Thinker's big revelation,
2. Wally's sudden break from the series,
3. The uneven direction of the episode.
Overall, I feel that the third episode " Luck Be A Lady " is largely successful in following the template set by season 4's first two episodes – keep it light and funny, and try to squeeze out the dynamics from the main cast and also eagerly waiting for the remaining 10 metahumans who are yet to arrive.
Rating : Three and Half out of Five
