The Flash

TV Show • 2014 • Drama  

Report
After a particle accelerator causes a freak storm, CSI Investigator Barry Allen is struck by lightning and falls into a coma. Months later he awakens with the power of super speed, granting him the ability to move through Central City like an unseen guardian angel. Though initially excited by his newfound powers, Barry is shocked to discover he is not the only "meta-human" who was created in the wake of the accelerator explosion -- and not everyone is using their new powers for good. Barry partners with S.T.A.R. Labs and dedicates his life to protect the innocent. For now, only a few close friends and associates know that Barry is literally the fastest man alive, but it won't be long before the world learns what Barry Allen has become...The Flash.

The Reverse Flash spends nearly 15 years stalking Barry and watching his life (he implies he even went to his soccer games and science fairs as a child) and after Barry wakes from his coma he has cameras placed in places he frequents.

Barry is told that his version of what happened the day his mother died never happened, and that the real killer was his father.
He is also told that he was simply being paranoid when he suspected Devoe.

In the first season, a brother-sister thief duo discusses their abusive father. The sister goes into detail by saying their father hit them to "teach them lessons". She exposes a large scar on her shoulder and says her dad hit her with a bottle when she was young (<10 y/o). Says she was mostly raised by her brother. At issue in the episode is that the father puts a bomb in the sister's neck to manipulate the brother and threatens to kill the sister if he doesn't do everything he says. The bomb is removed and the sister is saved.

Not squashed, but in the first season, a villain's father explodes heads via a bomb in the neck. When one of the bombs detonates, we don't see the head explode, but we hear it and characters discuss the headless body and "jagged" neck.

After a duo of villains kidnaps [Character 1], they torture his brother (we learn he recovers but don't see it) to extort information. In a separate episode, the same duo kidnaps [Character 2] and tie her up and make threatening comments to her. They put a trip-wire bomb under her chair (everyone escapes unharmed).

From most to least graphic...

S1E12 Caitlin does it after she and Barry go to the bar. There’s a decent warning— “Barry, I don’t feel good.” This is the only instance in this episode. There is audio and visual, but it doesn’t last too long.
S4E4 This is the first appearance of Ralph Dibny, The Elongated Man and a bus meta. His powers manifest, and he is taken to STAR Labs for Caitlin to restore him. When he is in the bed and everyone is in the room with him, Ralph sneezes, and his face stretches off. Joe is then heard and seen getting sick. You don’t actually see it because he does it behind Barry’s back.
S4E5 Barry is heard and seen getting sick in the jail cell toilet. Again, you don’t actually see it, but you can see him with his head in the position of the toilet, and he wipes his face. Fair warning. You should have the time to skip.
Finally, each time Barry runs Diggle somewhere, Dig gets sick. Should give enough time to skip. Some are more graphic than others.

Barry is a CSI whose overstepping of the law is often celebrated. Later seasons tend to ignore his job completely, until they decide to use it as a plot point for a few episodes then forget it the rest of the season again.

Yeah, but it isn't because they're LGBT. [SPOILER] is shown flirting with a person of the same gender once. The show doesn't make too big a deal of it. Later, the person dies due to timeline complications.
Also, one character who is openly gay does die, I think.
LGBT oppression in camps is shown in a crossover episode, but the episode can be skipped.

The main villain of the show fakes being paralyzed in order to gain sympathy. He is revealed to be the villain because he stands up from his wheelchair, which perpetuates the all wheelchair users are paralyzed and anyone that can stand up is faking myth.

A character also invents a fictional mental illness called "Lightning Psychosis" in order to explain the person in question;s quite creepy behavior towards the girl that he likes, instead of saying: "Hey he's in love with you."

A girl with DID or Dissociative Identity Disorder is shown and one of her alters is seen as a monster that attacks people, stigmatizing those with DID. It's never directly said on screen that it is DID, but with context clues you can figure it out very easily.

A partially blind character is introduced with horrible burns on his face, and is often referred to as "pizza face".
The character is eventually killed because another character uses his partial blindness as an advantage.

The main character comes back communicating differently, and is eventually revealed to have Schizophasia. The character's significant other starts crying and saying that she wants the old him back, and that she would be sad if this was all that was left of him.

There are suggestive scenes, there's one scene where two characters start to undress and make out.
Many times it is implied on or offscreen that characters are partaking in adult acts.

Adopted siblings who have been living together since they were both 10 years old get married. In early seasons she refers to him as "like a brother". He refers to his adopted dad/father-in-law as "dad" occasionally but mostly calls him by his first name.
