The Flash Returns with a Plot Worthy of its Best Villain – has made no secret of how much we love Gorilla Grodd. Of all the strange, colorful villains in The Flash’s rogues gallery, Grodd is the most interesting, the most formidable and the absolute least likely to work on a modern TV show. The Flash was able to make television audiences take a talking psychic gorilla seriously, and did it without compromising who Grodd is in the comics. It’s only a shame in the last two seasons; he’s either been someone’s pawn or relegated to a throwaway villain-of-the-week episode. Now, he looks to be getting the two-parter he deserves.
