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.

    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.






He is a sociopathic killer fixated on Barry.

He has shown that he can manipulate people with words as well as kill with ease. Case in point when he manipulated Plastique to try to get Eiling.

I believe him when he says he wanted to kill young Barry. However since Barry as the Flash arrived and fought him, Barry likely realized he needs to safe his young self from RF, but despite his speed he can't save himself and his parents so a choice has to be made. To be honest it really feels like a no won scenario, save his kid self and lose his mother or try to save her and be killed as a kid thus being terminated from the time line.

Reverse Flash states he hadn't intended to kill Nora Allen, but when Flash takes his young self to safety RF feels a bit of spite and kills Nora then takes off after the Flash but goes the wrong way and then runs out of power as we saw.

Reverse Flash outsmarted himself since he went too far back in time and was present before the Speed Force and the Flash exists.
