    It has always been a concern to me that everything in this series has been founded on a time paradox - Thawne's time-travelling and manipulation alterd time to create a manufactured timeline whih we have had since episode 1. Without that Particle Accelerator accident Thawne engineered just what was The Flash's origin originally...?
    Which brings us to the ring... given Thawne was from Barry's future is it not possible, likely even, that the ring originally belonged to Barry Allen, the original Barry?
    So what we are seeing unfold is a paradox. Its a shame really as I always liked the Idea Barry was clever enough as a Scientist to create his own Ring in the same way Stan Lee had Peter Parker Invent his web-shooters and fluid. It is possibly the one downside of the television format, that it is an ensemble cast and Barry therfoore lacks his independence and therefore the urge for self-sufficiency.

I think a large part of Barry's lack of intelligence is because of Caitlin and Cisco. Without them in the show, the writers would be forced to show Barry's intelligence a lot more. But so long as they do most of the thinking, Barry doesn't have to.

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?
