Critic reviews for Revenge of the Rogues

More than any specific plot beat, the real achievement of the winter premiere is just how much footwork is accomplished, with fans unlikely to even notice.

Treated its audience like adults, which goes a long, long way towards creating a feeling of trust between viewer and show.

Coming off a subpar episode in the fall finale, the show wasted little time getting back in the groove, serving up another tight and entertaining hour.

"Revenge of the Rogues" is another episode about duality, most obviously as embodied by Captain Cold and Heat Wave, both of whom are perfectly played by former Prison Break stars and real-life buddies Miller and Purcell.

This week all the subplots of the supporting cast moved things forward instead of just giving them something to do.

The show has become sure-footed! It's found its runner's high! Whatever hackneyed way you want to say it, the fact is that "Revenge of the Rogues" was one of The Flash's best episodes yet.
