The Flash Season 8 Episode 1 Recap
In the premiere of ‘The Flash’ season 8, titled ‘Armageddon, Part 1,’ Barry prepares for his upcoming battle with Despero, and this time he seems more confident because of his recent win against Godspeed and Reverse-Flash. Iris West’s news agency is doing exceptionally well, and she even makes Allegra Garcia take on more duties. Trouble arrives shortly after as a group of supervillains called the Royal Flush Gang plan to run major heists on a group of casinos.
The main event is preceded by a train accident, a break-in at a laboratory, and the planned escape of a fugitive, all of which is caused by the team of nefarious thieves. At Iris’ news agency, Allegra is helplessly incapable of impressing her subordinates, although she is willing to work for it. Police Captain Kristen Kramer starts to believe that a metahuman task force could have easily stopped the Royal Flush Gang sooner, but her statement worries Barry. He doesn’t want her to figure out that he is The Flash.
Ray Palmer, in the meantime, returns to the city, hoping to rid himself of any superhero commitments, but Despero’s arrival obligates him to wear his suit again. Reinhabiting his identity as the Atom, he assists Barry in fighting the bad guys and then considers starting a nonprofit organization funding tech research in the name of Chester’s late father. Despero declares that The Flash would be responsible for causing a disastrous Armageddon in the year 2031. Barry tries to showcase the strength of his good-natured side to Despero, who ultimately gives him seven days to change his mind.
