An Emotional Ride!!
1 November 2017 | by rajab-531-19490See all my reviews

It's hard to write a review without spoilers but I'll still try. This is my first review ever and this episode forced me to write one. After a slow start to the season, I was expecting this episode to increase the pace but instead they slowed it down and it didn't disappoint a bit.

This episode is an emotional roller- coaster. Starts off with some good laughs and will make you cry at the end. Young Ray Palmer's pet is so cute and adorable. In short nothing beats a family reunion and you get to see it twice in this episode. Enjoy!
