The Death of Vibe



Critic Consensus: "The Death of Vibe" effectively teases out the threat posed by the villainous Cicada and introduces a fun new persona for Tom Cavanaugh to play, although viewers' mileage with the more relaxed pace may vary.

Critic reviews for The Death of Vibe

Nora/XS gets her heroic moment, and Cicada's powers take a a satisfying episode for any Flash fan.

Well that was a satisfying episode. We have our Wells, we are on the trail of the new villain, and Caitlin has her own storyline outside of Team Flash. Can we give Iris one too?

The Death of Vibe sports a dramatically over the top title, but features a story that's surprisingly grounded.

Cicada is shaping up the be the best bad guy a Flash fan could ask for.

In the wake of their fight with Cicada, Team Flash decides to announce Vibe is dead, which means Cisco will have to find another way to be a hero. I'm interested in seeing where this goes.

Even though Cicada can apparently fly, this villain reveal formula is getting old.
