This week girls take the lead in The Flash as they celebrate their Bachelorette party in “Girls Night Out”. What makes this episode stand out is that it comfortably carries the momentum from the excellent “Elongated Journey Into the Night”. The girl's gang include Iris, Cecile, Caitlin, and Felicity (Guest starring) had a rough night which includes a drug generating meta, a Crime boss who carry a bucket of bolts, and a snake-eyed henchman.
First things first, the Writers of the season 4 are in excellent form, as they continue to deliver each episode in top-notch quality. One of the masterstrokes played by them is placing Iris in the driver seat throughout the episode. Well supported by Felicity Smoak, and Caitlin's Frosty mode, she delivers a perfect knockout.
1. The camaraderie between all four women,
2. Ralph Dibny's antics,
3. Felicity Smoak,
4. References to Incredible Hulk.
2. The Subplot of Caitlin Snow.
After a long time, "Girls Night Out” provides a really required change of pace for The Flash. Moments like drunk Pep talk between Barry and Joe about Kids, Elongated man testing his abilities and Ladies trying to solve the case on their own proved to be standalone points of today's episode. It should be very interesting to see what the showrunners have in their bag for the coming episodes, especially the epic crossover event of the Arrowverse.
My Rating : Three and Half out of Five.
