Had to do one last one before bed:

Flash Review!
Episode (I've lost count): Deadly Nightshade

Episode Summary in 5 Sentences or Less: A new, murderous vigilante calling himself Nightshade is on a killing spree. It's up to the Flash and the original Nightshade (last seen in Ghost in the Machine) to bring him in!

Hey! I Know that Guy!: Who's that frightened heiress that the Flash rescues in the opening scene? Why, it's Jeri Ryan! Who's the somewhat frigid psychiatrist who's trying to discredit the Flash? Why, it's Denise Crosby! Trust me, this is the only place you'll ever see Seven of Nine and Lt. Tasha Yar on screen together.

What's Good: The fact that there's a bit of a mentor/student relationship between the Flash and Nightshade. A nice, psycho villain and some decent action.

What's Not So Good: Not a lot.

Final Verdict: One of the better episodes.

Oh, and just one thing I'd like to point out. In his costume and methodology, Nightshade (the good one) seems to be heavily inspired by the Golden Age hero the Sandman.
