Grant Gustin The Flash Plastique

CW‘s The Flash Plastique Review. The Flashcast: The Flash Podcast: Season 1, Episode 5: Plastique is an audio podcast review in which FilmBook contributor Mike Smith discusses his reaction to the latest episode of CW’s The Flash.

The Flash: Season 1, Episode 5: Plastique‘s plot synopsis (spoilers): “A new metahuman appears in Central City, with the ability to turn anything she touches into an explosive. Barry is able to discover that the metahuman, Bette Sans Souci (Kelly Frye), is a former military explosives expert who was changed by the particle accelerator when it bonded bomb shrapnel to her body on a cellular level. As General Wade Eiling hunts for Bette, Barry brings her to S.T.A.R. labs where the team explains to her how she got her powers. Unfortunately, they cannot reverse the process. While the team is away, Dr. Wells convinces Bette to kill Eiling so that he cannot exploit any metahumans. Barry races to stop her, but Bette sets off several bombs around Eiling and his men. Eiling manages to shoot Bette, which causes her body to turn into a massive bomb. Barry speeds off with Bette’s body and drops it in the river to save the city from the explosion. General Eiling visits Dr. Wells demanding that they work together, as they did in the past, to collect the metahumans. Dr. Wells refuses and warns Eiling to never return to S.T.A.R. labs. In a flashback set five years in the past, Dr. Wells tells Eiling he is putting an end to their experiments. After Eiling leaves, Wells walks to a cage and tells Gorilla Grodd that he has plans for him.”

The Flash: Season 1, Episode 5: Plastique stars Grant Gustin, Candice Patton, Rick Cosnett, Danielle Panabaker, Carlos Valdes, Tom Cavanaugh, Jesse L. Martin, John Wesley Shipp, Kelly Frye, and Clancy Brown.
