    I really liked this episode. The story went more further and there were some great twists and turns. Can’t wait to see the big battle and the reveal for what Eonard Thawne’s ultimate plan is.

    So I’m curious how Flash beat Agents of Shield when it had 3.8 million views compared to Agents of Shield that had well over 4 million viewers. The math just doesn’t add up to me.

      In the initial overnights, The Flash had a 1.5 in the Ages 18-49 demo; SHIELD had only 1.4. Ergo, in the key demographic – the one most important to advertisers – Flash beat SHIELD.
