[[folder: Meta (human) ]]

* Unlike ''Series/{{Arrow}}'', which tries to be much more grounded, this show's heavy use of metahumans means it's going to be much more effects-heavy (Barry's speed effects, Mardon's tornado, and Nimbus's mist effects, for starters.) From what we've seen so far, [[VisualEffectsOfAwesome they've handled it really well]].
* The fact that they're even tackling Gorilla Grodd, one of the more outlandish elements of the Flash mythos, in live-action.
* Many queer viewers have been praising the fact that Captain Singh is gay, like his comic book counterpart, and especially the fact that his statement confirming this was ''the'' most casual and normalized thing he could have said.
--> "My boyfriend wants us to eat more healthy at home, so this is the only place I can eat what I ''like.'' Sorry, you were saying something?"
* Creator/MarkHamill has been confirmed to be reprising his role of the Trickster, having played the role both in the 1990's TV show and in ''Justice League Unlimited''.

[[folder: Episode One: Pilot ]]


* The flashback that shows a child Barry getting beaten up by some bullies. The reason? Because he stood up to them for picking on some other kids. He emerges without any bruises, and his Mom later reveals that he won.
* The S.T.A.R. Labs team testing Barry's powers. They don't expect much..until he begins clocking in at 200 mph and blows away the canopy they set up.
* Barry cancelling out Mardon's TornadoMove at the end of the pilot is awesome both in-universe [[VisualEffectsOfAwesome and out]].
** [[CrowningMusicofAwesome The music definitely helped the scene too]].
* The moment Barry catches the piece of debris headed for Joe and unconscious Eddie, then tosses it off and standing up to reveal himself in The Suit and Mask for the first time.
* The fact that CrisisOnInfiniteEarths gets mentioned at the end of the pilot. Making this the first time in non-comic media that any Crisis has been so much as hinted at.
* Oliver's RousingSpeech about how Barry can be even more of a hero than him, topped by giving the Flash his name.
** To say nothing about how the scene ended with [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome a combination of both their theme songs]].
* Shortly after Barry gets his powers, he sees Mardon driving in a getaway car. After he and Iris get out of the way, what does he do? He doesn't stop to think, he doesn't hesitate, he just runs after him with the powers he barely even understands yet. The lightning bolt chose well.

[[folder: Episode Two: Fastest Man Alive ]]


* Flash running through the giant mass of Multiplex's clones [[Film/TheMatrix Matrix]]-style.
* Wells stating that the Flash must be protected, [[spoiler:and then stabbing Stagg]] who was talking about harnessing the Flash's powers after having seen the Flash in action.
* Flash [[BulletDodge dodges a bullet]] for the first time.

[[folder: Episode Three: Things You Can't Outrun ]]


* Ronnie Raymond's HeroicSacrifice. The moment the particle accelerator begins to fail, he straight-up volunteers to use his expertise to redirect the explosion. He saves countless lives in exchange for losing his '''one'''.
* Barry's first confrontation with The Mist. He gets exposed to the toxic gas, his next course of action? ''Running'' all the way back to Star Labs so they can extract a sample from his body and create an antidote. Bear in mind, ''he can't breathe and is dying''.
* In the opening scene, Barry pulls a guy being chased by the police out of his car, puts handcuffs on him, and delivers him right into the back of the squad car chasing him - in the time it took Iris to take one phone call with Eddie. Bookended when he snatches a knife from a mugger and leaves the woman being mugged holding the knife, all in an instant.
* Caitlin facing her fear of going down into the Particle Accelerator deserves some mention. Bonus points for Barry agreeing to accompany her.

[[folder: Episode Four: Going Rogue ]]


* Barry is now able to simultaneously play Operation, ping pong, and chess, winning two of them.
* Captain Cold is able to get away from Barry twice (one without his cold gun), and then nearly kills him at the end of the episode. He figures out Barry is more concerned with saving people than stopping him, so he endangers a train full of people, and has proven himself to be the most dangerous villain so far.
* When Cold derails a train, the cars flip and fall out of control. Barry is able to save everyone by picking them up, running them out and then going back for more at lightning speed. He's moving so fast he might as well be ''teleporting.''
* Cisco successfully bluffing Captain Cold into backing off by pretending a vacuum cleaner is an upgraded version of his gun. Even when Cold points out he's clearly never killed anyone, the guy is able to keep his cool enough to make it believable.
* Everyone seems to hate Cisco's code names for the villains, but when he calls Snart "Captain Cold" during their standoff, the latter can't help but give an affectionate smirk, apparently getting a kick out of the title.

[[folder: Episode Five: Plastique ]]


* Barry runs up a building (And back down again) to save a falling window cleaner.
* Barry talking Plastique down, only for her to be shot and killed by General Eiling. As her explosive powers begin to overload her body, Barry picks her up and runs across water to get her out of Central City.
* When Eiling confronts Wells over sending Plastique to kill him, Wells doesn't even need to get out of his chair to convince the general to back off.

[[folder: Episode Six: The Flash is Born ]]


* Just before launching on his way to his mach punch, Bary takes a three point stance and his eyes flash with yellow lightning.
* Barry's Mach Punch!
--> '''Cisco''': ''[[AudienceSurrogate SUPERSONIC PUNCH, BABY! WOO!!]]''
* Iris taking the finishing swing at Tony.
* Barry reveals his identity to an incarcerated Tony, not only to let the JerkJock know who beat him, but to give him a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech about how Tony is nothing but the same elementary school bully who has wasted a powerful gift.
* Barry comes up with an especially sly way to get the public onboard with his preferred superhero name, contriving to mention the word "flash" while talking about the Streak with Iris so she'll put it in her blog.

[[folder: Episode Seven: Power Outage ]]


* Blackout's CurbstompBattle against Girder.
** Before his [[spoiler: death,]] Tony punching Blackout across the room and pulling a NoSell against a blast of electricity. He may not have lasted too long, but he did put up a fight against Blackout.
* Barry outracing lightning from across the room and saving Wells, followed by overloading Blackout.
* Iris taking out Clock King.

[[folder: Episode Eight: Flash VS Arrow ]]

* Flash VS Arrow in a downright epic street fight!
** This is also awesome on a meta level, as they seamlessly combine ''The Flash's'' special effects with ''Arrow's'' fight choreography.
* Wells deducing the Arrow's identity in less than a day once he decides to get serious about it.
** FridgeBrilliance kind of nullifies this though, since [[spoiler: he probably just used his future computer to figure it out]].
* With the Flash and the Arrow teaming up, the outcome is such a foregone conclusion that we cut straight to Bivolo being put in the Pipeline.
* During TheStinger, two crooks try [[MuggingTheMonster robbing]] someone who turns out to be [[spoiler:Ronnie, alive and with superhuman fire powers.]]
* Oliver's method of teaching Barry to be more aware of his surroundings: He challenges Barry to avoid being shot, and while Barry easily catches the arrow Oliver himself fires, he runs straight past two automatic crossbows hidden in the grass which both get him in the back.
** Which then gets a super sweet callback as Barry catches the arrows Oliver had set up to repeat the trick during the street fight. "Fool me once." Then he gets a flechette in the leg. The Arrow landed a hit on a rage-maddened Flash!

[[folder: Episode Nine: The Man In The Yellow Suit ]]

* Reverse Flash's fights with The Flash are awesome, and the character is very scary and effective-as a good villain should be.
** During their second fight, Barry saves Joe and Eddie from Reverse Flash, and then is himself [[BigDamnHeroes saved]] by [[spoiler: Firestorm, who blasts RF like a flamethrower. Firestorm then flies away with awesome trails of fire behind him.]]

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Episode Ten: Revenge of the Rogues ]]

* Barry has been training to increase his speed, and at the beginning of the episode, we catch up with him dodging missiles. Except he's now gotten so good that he opts to instead ''catch'' one and throw it back at the drone, in the process freaking Wells out so much that he almost jumps out of his chair.
* This exchange from when Caitlin is being held prisoner by the Rogues.
-->'''Caitlin''': You're sick.
-->'''Heat Wave''': You ever think you're all the sick ones?
-->'''Caitlin''': [[ShutUpHannibal Not really, no.]]
* The Flash's epic fight with Captain Cold and Heat Wave, which combines with his public reveal to make the police quickly accept him as a hero.
** Ending the fight by slowing down, [[DeliberateInjuryGambit deliberately letting himself get hit by their weapons]], in order to cross the streams and cancel them, knocking both villains out.
*** The scene nicely resembles the cover to [[http://www.wtv-zone.com/silverager/flash/flash140.jpg ''Flash'' #140]].
** Eddie deserves mention as well, as he dives into the fight with nothing but one of Cisco's customized shields, saving Flash from a double attack by the villains.
* TheStinger. Both Captain Cold and Heat Wave are on their way to Iron Heights in a police wagon. Heat Wave is ranting about how Cold's obsession with the Flash cost them everything, but Cold is his usual calm and collected self, saying their current situation just means the plan changes. Then an explosion goes off (or some sort of commotion) and someone opens the police wagon door. Who opens it? Cold's ''sister''. The man has a plan for '''everything'''.

[[folder: Episode 11: The Sound and The Fury ]]

* Hartley nearly kills Harrison Wells. The [[BigBad Big Bad]] of the Flash series. Not bad, for the 'Prodigal Child'.
* Harrison saves Barry by sending a frequency through the satellite radios of all the nearby cars that destroys Hartley's special gloves.
** And at the beginning of the episode, where he directed Barry to steer 3 motorcycle crooks right toward each other.
