    Okay whatever that neutralizer device is in the Arrow, Cisco and Caitlyn need to replicate that device and build many copies of it ASAP as we all know RF isn't down for long.

And we all know he has a back up plan. Any mastermind Super-Villain always does.

    Even though they shut down RF's speed for the moment, how will they contain him? Wells/Thawne is very crafty.

Crafty as well as smart. Smarter than any and all of them. Now is the perfect time to get Gideon away from Thawne.

    RF reveals he stores his costume in his Reverse Flash ring!

Isn't that awesome? Maybe Barry will get that idea and adopt it himself.

    Snart double crossed Barry, no surprise there. Barry's faith in human kindness was used against him. Now the Rogues are on the loose and Snart is planning to recruit them since they owe him a big favor. I have got to once again give the writers points for making Snart so devious.

Which is good. Too often I see absolutely brilliant villains do so well only to have their intelligence level drop waaaaaay down. So far, Snart is escaping that tired cliché. Let's hope it keeps up.

    Joe realizes more then ever that in terms of the law they are all in it deep for the containing of the metas. However with them all free now, the situation is somewhat moot, and Cisco and Caitlyn could easily wipe out evidence that they were locked up at Star Labs.


    Eddie breaks up with Iris. He has seen his future and is not pleased and he realizes that Iris and Barry love each other, they know it even if they won't admit it, Joe knows it, and Eddie is done fighting it. Possible turn to the darkside for Eddie coming?

All indications seem to be heading that way.

    Caitlyn briefly gets mindzapped by the meta that induces anger....possible first nudge to being Killer Frost?

Eh, maybe. But we won't see Killer Frost until season 2.

    Great appearances by Firestorm and Arrow. The fact that they leave beforee RF is locked in a cell is bad though, even with that neutralizer stuck in RF.

Well, they probably have their own problems to deal with. I know Oliver does. \:\)

    Nice Hal Jordan reference at Ferris Aircraft.

*Smiles* It was a nice one. LOVED IT! \:\)

    Even though RF is down, they have a fully charged particle accelerator on hand to deal with. I sense Barry now has the means to time warp to the past as the accelerator is now serving as the cosmic treadmill.

Yep. And from the previews, he does time travel into the past. \:\)

*Crosses fingers* Let's hope Barry remembers what Wells/Thawne tried telling him. You can't change the past without changing the future. Let's hope Barry realizes this and does NOT save his Mom. I know that may sound harsh, but I really, really don't want the writers to do Flashpoint. That storyline sucked!

    I also suspect that Cisco and Barry will use the power generator from the wheelchair that cisco used to power the containment truck to supercharge Barry's powers.


    Barry likely already IS faster then RF, but his doubt is impeding him. Just like in the Matrix with Neo, Barry must free his mind and not think he is slower or faster then RF but he must KNOW that he is.

You said it. Wells/Thawne said it better than anyone. "The only limit is yourself. You have everything you need."


    EDIT: Aside from the fact that RF does have Barry believing he is slower then RF, I begin to suspect that RF has been juicing himself up with the battery that Cisco found in the wheelchair, but remember also that when he stole the tachyon device he clamped it onto his costume in storage and the costume was getting saturated with tachyon particles.

Yep. \:\)

    We later saw RF using the device on himself but that he wasn't stabilizing and not absorbing the speed force energy as he should be...


    I suspect that battery in the wheelchair was indeed charging Reverse Flash so that he could use his powers and it was temporarily boosting him to be able to fight Barry, but once he got his hands on the tachyon device, he imbued his suit with tachyon energy and thus has a DUAL POWER SOURCE to keep him charged up until he can finish his plans with the particle accelerator.

Most likely.

    Remember also that when RF first fights Barry in the series, Barry is still a novice with his powers and wasn't ready for someone like the Reverse Flash. Now it is all about RF having a major power source to boost himself and Barry's own doubts are keeping Barry's power level down.

And as soon as those doubts vanish, Barry will finally be faster than RF. \:D

    EDIT 2: just rewatched the last half of Ep 9 when RF stole the tachyon device. When he was in the time vault and opened the closet where the RF costume was stored, the RF suit was jet black in color UNTIL RF used his reverse flash ring to turn on the lights in the storage room, but look carefully and the suit didn't turn yellow due to the lights, but due to the ring ACTIVATING the suit! The chest symbol on it lit up and then suit turns yellow. He then attaches the tachyon device to the suit and it begins to absorb the tachyon energies. Now I am even more convinced that I am right, that RF is having troubles tapping the speed force, and that he juiced up his suit to act as a power source and also juiced himself with that battery in the wheelchair.

I think your right. I had come the same conclusion. In the future, the speed force exists and Wells/Thawne taps into it for his Superspeed. But in the past, it doesn't exist yet, so that's why Wells/Thawne was trapped in the past because there was no longer any speed force to tap into anymore. His power source was gone.

    Also don't forget that in the Queen Bee episode there was an implication that Tina McGee's company MIGHT have another tachyon device...

Maybe. If it doesn't come into play in the Season finale, I doubt we'll see it unless the writers find a reason for it.

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?
