Tonight's episode was by far the defining moment in the entire season of "The Flash," it just leaves you wanting more answers as to whether or not Barry can save his mom or Cisco.

Also, will Gorilla Grodd be a factor in future episodes? This was a brilliant piece of direction.

"Out of Time," brings a whole new edgy factor to "The Flash" as Barry gets closer to the truth of the identity of the man responsible for his mother's death. The Weather Wizard was a formidable opponent but not one that The Flash could not handle.

There is a serious storm brewing on this show and tonight's episode is only beginning to elude to what's yet to come.

"The Flash" continues to build the hype around the hit show as it follows in the footsteps of "Arrow." Fans will need to tune in next week on The CW to find out what happens next.
