The Flash is only four episodes away from its season ending. But before we get to that finale, we have an episode directed by none other than Kevin Smith, who has not been shy about his love for the series.
In a roundtable interview (via ComicBook.com), The Flash Executive Producer Andrew Kreisberg noted how much fun it was to have Smith direct an episode: “Kevin is such a fan of this show, in a way that humbles me beyond my wildest expectations. To think about how often I quote his movies, and how he was who I wanted to be when I was in college, and to sit in a room with him and have him speak about this show so lovingly, intelligently and deeply, he didn’t approach this in the way of, ‘Well, here’s my chance to put my stamp on it,’ or ‘Here’s my chance to Clerks-ify it.’ His biggest drive was just to not mess it up because he’s such a fan. There was a reverence and an awe in how he approached everything. Usually, there’s a lot that goes on in editing, but this was an episode that we watched and gave very few notes and just said, ‘Go with God,’ because it came out so great.”
The Flash airs on Tuesdays on The CW.
