Barry Allen’s on trial for murder on The Flash in “The Trial of The Flash,” and there’s nowhere he can run from justice.

During the climax of the episode, Barry wields a dramatic new power that proves he’s faster than ever. It’s just too bad that his freedom is on the line.

Spoilers follow for The Flash Season 4, Episode 10: “The Trial of The Flash.”

In the mid-season finale, “Don’t Run,” The Thinker transferred his mind into a younger, healthier meta-human and framed Barry for the murder of Clifford DeVoe — who was seemingly left as a brainless husk after the aforementioned transfer. The Thinker thoroughly set up the framing to set Barry up, and the evidence is totally stacked against him.

The prosecutor for the trial is district attorney Anton Slater against Cecile’s defense of Barry. Slater deftly builds his case rather quickly, calling into question Barry’s unapproved six-month “sabbatical” to the Czech Republic (the excuse they gave for Barry being in the Speed Force), and he also highlights the 72 times Barry’s been late to work over the past two years.

Mark Valley as district attorney Anton Slater, who prosecutes Barry.

His entire case is built around the many suspicious details in Barry’s history, as if he has a secret identity … as a murderer. As such, even the few people that do publicly vouch for Barry’s character aren’t enough to convince the jury.

Cecile and Iris recognize that the only way for Barry to win the case is for him to take the stand and testify with the truth, admitting that he’s The Flash. But that’s not something he’s willing to do.

For a long stretch this episode, The Flash really wants you to think that they’ll actually follow through with it, going so far as to offer up a cliffhanger in which Iris bursts into the courtroom and says, “Barry Allen is …”

Just then, Barry reveals a new power. He rushes over to Iris and holds her in front of everyone, but he explains that he’s moving so fast that everyone else is still. They hold a lengthy, tear-filled conversation like this, and Barry’s able to run back without anybody noticing what happened.

Barry worries about the courtroom drama.

Barry’s not even sure how he was able to move this fast, but in case you were wondering, those speed levels are pretty much faster than is conceivable.

Ultimately, Barry Allen follows in his father’s footsteps. After saving the city one last time against a nuclear-charged “bus meta,” Barry’s convicted of the murder and sentenced to life in prison without parole. Legally speaking, Barry can never leave jail — until he does — which means that either Team Flash will figure out a way to have the conviction overturned or we’ll eventually get his secret identity publicly outed.

Either way, The Flash is starting to really frustrate its viewers, and next week’s episode that will see Ralph become a hero doesn’t seem like it’ll deliver.

On the plus side, maybe now this means that we can get The Flash on the DCTV version of the Suicide Squad? It’s doubtful, but we can dream, right?

If only we could see Barry team-up with other Arrowverse criminals.

The Flash airs Mondays on The CW at 8 p.m. Eastern.

It’s only Tuesday, but the latest batch of Fortnite: Battle Royale challenges have already leaked. We actually covered the initial news (and the mystery behind it) last week, but with Season 6 challenges quickly approaching here’s a quick guide on what you can do to prepare for the update (presumably version 5.3).

Monday is normally the day when Epic Games gives a tease of what’s coming in the next update for Fortnite: Battle Royale. While the company has yet to tweet or post about the update on the game’s subreddit, the update will likely happen Tuesday morning and include some interesting content.

Tuesday’s patch for Fortnite: Battle Royale will include new content and fixes to the game. One of the pieces will cause a big change to the game while the rest will be welcome additions for players.

Slender Man is the first feature film based on the wildly popular Slender Man creepypasta stories, but the movie’s abrupt ending suggests that the filmmakers don’t intend on producing a sequel. What we got instead a message that seems to put the franchise in an identity crisis.

Warning: Slender Man spoilers ahead.

Shark movies have an important place in film history. Jaws, the first-ever summer blockbuster, changed the film industry forever. Despite having a much bigger shark in it The Meg will certainly not make as big a splash as Jaws. The new action movie is perfectly dumb in the best possible way, though in an unexpected twist, the giant shark is really itself just bait to get moviegoers to see a Jason Statham movie.

Epic Games’ Fortnite: Battle Royale Summer Skirmish Series had a rocky start, but the weekly esports competition vastly improved over the course of four weeks. In Week 5, the event will go back to a duos tournament, but this time around, players will be awarded for a more aggressive playstyle.

On Thursday, Epic revealed the format for the Week 5 Summer Skirmish Series, which it calls King Pin. Fifty teams of two will compete in eight matches. They will receive points for each elimination they rack up, but what makes things interesting are the bonuses. A duo can receive double their points in the next match if they score seven or more eliminations or triple the points if they earn a Victory Royale. With this format, the team that strategizes and wins multiple matches could handily beat out the competition if they score plenty of kills or all their efforts to earn a Victory Royale could be for naught if they die right away in the next match.
