The Definitive Flash: 50 Shades of Flash, Day 8

Fifty Words on Fifty Def­i­n­i­tions of Flash

(def­i­n­i­tions from Dictionary.com)


      8.   the sud­den flame or intense heat pro­duced by a
bomb or oth­er explo­sive device.

Hitch­cock said to show
the audi­ence the bomb right away, but some flash writ­ers pre­fer the thing to go
off unan­nounced. It’s not always a bomb that appears to give flash a twist.
Guns, acci­dents, ghosts, even aliens pop up in end­ings. I say, “Show da bomb;
be da bomb.”
