Crazy for You (SPOILERS)

The antagonist in “Crazy for You” was Peek-a-Boo, a metahuman who can teleport.  If I ever had a super power, I would want to have the ability to teleport.  So, of course, I thought this was really cool.  The writers covered their tracks and set up specific rules for Peek-a-Boo’s powers. When we first saw Peek-a-Boo, I noticed that she was using a telescope.  Right off the bat, we were introduced to the rules of her powers- she can only teleport to places she can see.  Setting up these rules from the get-go allowed us to understand her limitations and believe her ultimate downfall.

Cisco kicked butt in “Crazy for You!”  The first time Hartley attempted to escape, Cisco was a total badass.  He threw strong punches and kicks, overcoming Hartley.  I didn’t know he had it in him.  It was awesome!

Caitlin still lacks any emotion towards Ronnie.  She mentioned that she had no life and finally needed to move on, but what is she moving on from?  She didn’t react to Ronnie’s death or the shocking fact that he merged with another individual.  Danielle Panabaker (Caitlin), the writers, and the directors need to step up their game and delve deeper into Caitlin’s character.  Just because she is a more reserved person doesn’t mean she can’t show emotion.
