The Flash Preview ‘All Doll’d Up’
Well, that’s certainly creepy.
Team Flash faces off against their newest foe, who happens to be a creepy doll. It kidnaps Barry, and it will be a race against time for the others to find him before the doll kills. If we’re going with the idea that the fallout of the Enlightenment created meta-objects, I’m going to assume the mask worn by this person is giving them all of these creepy attributes and “powers.” Ralph will take the lead on this mission since Cisco is out of commission as Vibe. Nora might end up helping them since she still cares a lot about her father, but she is taking some time away from them because of their fallout last episode.
I’m a bit surprised that we have this much information about the main antagonist and the main mystery of the season (the meta-objects). I’m wondering if the season will take a turn mid-way through and switch focus to something else, kind of like how Arrow changed big bads mid-way through. Right now, I just can’t see how they’re going to sustain this idea for 19 more episodes. Maybe because Nora is interfering so early, Barry actually will end up disappearing sooner than they think. I could see the season finale doing something along those lines and leaving us with a massive cliffhanger, but then that might be too close to the Season 3 finale when Barry went into the Speed Force. I don’t know what the show is planning, but I’m going to have faith in their vision.
