    I'm still wondering why Barry's super-speed punch had no effect on Grodd. Telekinetic shield, maybe?

Uhh, did you not see Grodd "catch" that superpseed punch with his own hand? That's why it had no effect.

    Still, since the closing scene proves Grodd survived his "encounter" with the train... (And how convenient...Cisco never even saw the second train coming, yet it was there a moment after the first train had passed...and Grodd never noticed it coming either?)

This I thought was odd as well. Pretty dumb to jump in front of a moving train and somehow "not" know it's coming...

Then again, maybe Grodd was so focused on Telepathically messing with Barry, he failed to notice the train? Possible.

    If Grodd survived, why did the General suddenly find himself free of Grodd's mind control? If Grodd was shielded by a TK field and was only stunned, why didn't his control of the General return once Grodd came to?

Interesting questions.

    I suspect Grodd originally was written to have been killed, and at the last minute the show-runners decided Grodd was too good a character to lose so early, so they changed it so he lived...which ended up making no sense considering what else happened.

    I hate it when they do stuff like this...

Maybe they'll introduce Gorilla City next. \:P

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?
