    2. Barry needs to use the videos that RF left behind and trace the angle back to the hidden cameras in Star LAbs and their homes and get rid of them all. Cisco then needs to run a sensor scan for any other cameras.


Well, we now know that's done and done. Cisco showed that he'd rounded up the cameras and likely checked for others already.

    5. Cisco needs to recreate the cold gun used by Captain Cold and give one to Barry and to each and every member of team Flash since the cold gun is designed to stop a speedster.


Wells taught Barry how to get rid of the Trickster's bomb. He may know a thing or two about dealing with the cold gun as well... Like vibrating so the ice can't form and trap him, or at least to instantly become free of it.

    6. Get Henry Allen to Star Labs for protective custody as RF could still target Barry through his father.


Yeah. The DA and the prison Warden are sure to agree to this.


    Quote:
    9. Talk to all the imprisoned meta humans, work out a deal for their aid against RF.


That may be a valid point, since the argument might be made that if it wasn't for Wells, they wouldn't have become Metas and wouldn't be locked up right now.

    Barry also needs to make a decision about his impending time travel to 15 years ago. he knows he HAS to go, but what devices could he take with him to tilt the odds in his favor?


I'd suggest Barry NOT go back in time, and thus wreck the timeline, except we know young Barry was the target, not Nora.

From the Silver Age comics, we know Barry can become The Flash without his mother being dead, right? (I sure don't recall ANYTHING from those old stories to suggest Barry's mother had died when he was a kid.)

If not for young Barry being Thrawne's target, older Barry going back wouldn't have to happen. But Wells says young Barry WAS the target, so what other option does older Barry have?

I still wonder about Wells' claim that he hadn't intended to kill Nora, and that Barry was his target, tho'.

First, if he erased The Flash, he'd erase the basis for his own super-speed as well. What had he planned to do? Stay in the present and become The Flash? Destroy the object of his own obsession? It makes no sense.

And why in the world kill Nora just because he hadn't been able to kill young Barry? I find it hard to believe he'd have been in such a wild, "kill-kill-kill!" state of mind where he'd kill the mother because he couldn't kill the son. Thrawne doesn't come across as being that way. He's far too much in control of himself.

There's got to be more to Nora's death than Wells/Thrawne is admitting to.

I just have no idea what it is.







After multiple misspellings, I just have to point this out. It is "Thawne" not "Thrawne". No R. \:\)





It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
