Magenta, the third episode of season 3 of The Flash, was written by Judalina Neira & David Kob and directed by Armen V. Kevorkian.
A new breach opens up inside S.T.A.R. Labs, but it is Harry and Jesse who come through. Jesse reveals she has super speed from the dark matter blast, disappointing Wally. Harry wants tests run on Jesse, but really wants her talked out of becoming a superhero. In the meantime, Frankie Kane’s alternate personality, Magenta, attacks her abusive foster father using strong magnetic powers. When Julian discovers she has an element of metahuman DNA, he confronts Frankie, which awakens Magenta. Barry learns that Magenta got her powers from Dr. Alchemy. Jesse tells Wally her powers were triggered when a car nearly hit her. Wally unsuccessfully tries the same thing, requiring Jesse to save him. Caitlin ultimately chastises Harry, saying he should help Jesse instead of interfering. Magenta goes to the Central City Hospital to destroy it with an oil tanker, with her foster father inside. While the building is evacuated, Barry attempts to hold off the tanker. Since Barry can’t also confront Magenta, Harry sends Jesse to help. Barry is able to talk Frankie into gaining control over Magenta. Frankie reveals that Alchemy came to her in dreams of another life, which concerns Wally as he has had similar dreams. Harry tells Jesse that he will support her decision and presents her with her own costume. Joe later shows Barry and Julian a video of Clariss being killed in his cell by an unseen force.
This was kind of a mediocre episode, a little too much dialogue driven scenes throughout this episodes and most of the dialogue in this episode is mostly filler, nothing of interest or excitement happens in this episode and a lot of it just goes on and on and there’s never a point in this episode where you feel like you’re getting future story development. I really think this is pretty much a filler episode that just didn’t work as well as the first two episodes did.
A Matter Of Trust, the third episode of Arrow season five, was written by Ben Sokolowski & Emilio Ortega Aldrich and directed by Gregory Smith.
The Green Arrow is forced to face a powerful new drug dealer when Wild Dog goes off on his own.
An overall okay episode, I didn’t think there was nothing incredible or too exciting about this episode but unlike this week’s Flash episode, something of interest was actually happening, the story felt like it was building up to something, there was decent acting, there was good action, it was an okay episode, not one of the best but not one of the worst.
