Not the best episode , but it had to be done so Barry had a chance to understand his powers.

Mommy died, I miss her. BooHoo! Sack-up, put on the big boy pants and get on with it ... be The Flash, stop making stupid decisions or walk away and go back to being a faceless CSI.

It was evident that there was new direction in this episode as Kevin Smith took the helm. The episode definitely took a emotional route and slowed down to focus on Barry and help him realize the truth behind his powers. The tone continued from the "Back to Normal" tone and in a way took too long to get to Barry doing what he had to do and realize what he had to realize in order to return back as The Flash. The acting from the supporting cast seemed a bit weird - the awkward humor between Wells and Cisco ("Plan H") didn't help the "unnatural-like" Team Flash. Things did take a positive turn when Barry finally showed up and the episode became as we know it. There definitely is a delay to get to the final duel between Barry and Zolomon as the viewer is being given a "it all comes down to this" build up. Well they have us hooked and wishing its the finale already, at least in my view. The episode "The Runaway Dinosaur" was sadly a 7/10.
