I was right, it was Julian all along.

Your thoughts?

Was anyone surprised it was Julian? Why get a star like Tom Felton to play a small role?

Great Episode:

- Does Julian know that Barry is the Flash? I know he dislikes Barry, but it's verging on animosity. He knows Caitlin was Barry's friend; I think he knows the Flash saved her? Meh, probably stretching. But what exactly does Julian remember/know from Flashpoint? What info has the Philosopher's Stone given him? hmmmm

- Caitlin gets some action. I love that she is a scientist (where you actually get to see her brain work and not just let it be said she's a scientist); but I also love she can kick some butt now too. Ever since she clocked Cisco when possessed by Grodd, i've wanted her to have some real action scenes.

- Joe being wrong. Finally. Dad/perfect Joe was getting to be too much. Yeah it's cute when he doesn't understand the science and just rolls with it. This time he didn't stay in his lane and messed up his son. Hmmm, is Barry influencing Joe now?

- HR the muse. I like how he's always on point. No, he doesn't have the science, but he does have some great deductive reasoning. Was he a drummer on his world? What's with always having a stick in his hand. Needs to cut down on the caffeine. Or maybe he doesn't. lol

-Cisco. Poor guy. I don't know what kinda of therapy this guy is going to need. I didn't follow him in the comics, what was his relationship like with his brother? Dante could have died at any point. Flashpoint just could have made it happen sooner rather than later. Meh.

- Wally. Interesting notion about him running faster than Barry did in the beginning of his career. I think that mirrors the comics. Now when Barry deals with the Crisis, Wally will take over for him. lol

-Iris. Love how supportive she is. I just don't want her character development sacrificed for Caitlin's. For some reason writers don't have a problem writing for multiple male characters, but sometimes they really have issues with more than one woman.

Case in point Arrow: the Laurel character was sacrificed for the Felicity character. Don't give me boo about acting ability. Katy did what she could with what she had. Funny how after her death, writing for the Laurel character dramatically improved. People on other boards are talking about the chemistry between Danielle and Grant, much like they talked about Stephen and what's her name (really, I had it, but it slipped my mind). Yes, but let's not have another freak up like Ollicity. Danielle/Caitlin has her strengths, Candace/Iris has hers. Let's see both.

I'm really enjoying this season so far. Is it a masterpiece, no. Maybe it has to do with not following the comics ( outside of when Wally was the Flash), maybe it just gives me an opportunity to vegge.
