Quote:Regarding Barry's sudden conclusion that Vandal wasn't a meta but something magical.....Cisco DID ask him if this has anything to do with what happened with ZOOM.
Yes, but Vandal Savage displayed no "clear" mystical powers and the only thing they had to go on were ancient daggers. Sorry, but Barry shouldn't have been able to automatically know Vandal Savage wasn't a metahuman, he was given next to no evidence.
Quote:Why are they still not trying to do what they did in Season 1 to recharge Jay and Barry? Oh yeah, the speed formula that I said was coming. They should still try what the did in season 1.
Agreed, they do need to try that but they have amnesia, which is why they aren't trying again.
Quote:as to the Mach 2 thing, RF states that Barry must be at mach 2 when he hit the particle to form the wormhole. Barry was also at around mach 2+ speeds when he first timewarped, while it is true that lightspeed is normally required, it is possible that once Barry hits Mach 2+ he can enter the speed force and then IS at light speeds....
Sorry, not buying it. If Mach 2+ is required to enter the Speed Force, then that means Barry cannot ever achieve speeds more than Mach 2 as he would always be entering the Speed Force or time traveling. And we were told in this episode that Zoom is 3 to 4 times faster than Barry. I'd say that's more than Mach 2. And Barry needs to be faster than Zoom to beat him and that means he needs to be faster than Mach 2 but cannot do that if he just enters the Speed Force upon hitting that speed. Thus, lightspeed is required to enter the speed force since that makes far more sense than Mach 2+ as I have already explained.
Vandal was exposed to a meteor rock in the temple, but also linked to the hawks in a magical sense, so just what is his empowering really from?
