Prison Cells in The Flash: Who the hell is feeding these villains?


0

Because my sister and I are both a little bit more than obsessed with The Flash and were in a rush to catch up before the third season started, we binge-watched about half of season two the other day when I started thinking… another metahuman tossed into the specially created cells beneath Star Labs in the popular speedster’s TV series, but given how dangerous these people were and the total lack of any visible openings on the octagonal prisons, I began to wonder, “Who in the hell is feeding these villains?”

Of course, it is very possible that they knock the metahumans out for every feeding, not that we’ve ever seen them being fed. With their seemingly unlimited resources, this isn’t the craziest theory I could come up with. Although I’d think being gassed two or three times a day would be very hard on the body, at least, for a normal person. Who even said metahumans had to eat anyway? Some of them, like that guy who barbeques people with his bare hands, survived years in impossible conditions (in his case, in a vat of hot tar) without food, oxygen, water, and other bodily needs. Even still, people with such high moral standards as team Flash would never let a bad guy go hungry and none of them have the stomach for psychological torture.

Why would I even been thinking about this? Because I am me, my brain probably gets about as much rest as any of the wonderful, charming scientists that make up the cast of the show, and so, my brain is always busy thinking thinking thinking about things, constantly arranging, taking apart, and restructuring all sorts of situations to come up with new storylines, lines of poetry, blog posts when this thought popped into my head. My brain did not stop there. Once on this line of inquiry, it was hard to just stop so then I turned to my sister and said, “Alright, so not only are they not feeding any of these sucky human beings, but they also don’t have toilets or showers. So they’re hungry and funky, which are very bad qualities to add to the personalities of the kinds of people who end up in these meta-proof cells.

What is the whole point of this post?

To share with you my neuroses for over-analyzing fictional television shows and further prove that there are girls out here in the world who geek as hard as any man. Yes, many of us are capable of having hypothetical geek sessions about our favorite super heroes, analyzing their behavior in order to predict the future of the TV shows, and coming up with alternate theories for events that have already occurred.

With all of that being said, I hold to my theory that these villains are either being gassed or otherwise restrained for feedings because people need food. Shit. Flash eats and he’s a metahuman so why should any of the villains be different? This also brings to my mind the prison cells of Zoom, also toilet and shower-less and created for the purpose of keeping his prisoners indefinitely. The only time we ever saw anyone with food was after he kidnapped Kaitlyn, whom he had feelings for. So I guess Zoom has to care about you in order for you to get fed and maintain personal hygiene.

None of this has any influence over the storyline of the show, but that does not stop me from being nagged half to death until I had to share my craziness with Flash fans.

Have you noticed any details that nag the hell out of you? Comment below so we can all geek out together. 🙂

What if Peter Pan was black? Black kids can't go to Neverland? What if Peter isn't the star of this story? In this retelling of an old classic, my "Wendy" runs the show. It's like Disney but with a lot more darkness and a lot more girl power. It's...Neverland by Maple Summers.
