      Jay recommends they dump the stone into the speed force where it SHOULD be lost for good and gives Barry an assist however some feedback from that sends Barry about 5 months into the future where he sees Savitar KILL IRIS



    Quote:
    Iris is nothing more than Barry's adopted half sister, so it's a little gross to see them in a relationship (a bit creepy too). I'm all for traditional relationships, but the Showrunners really screwed up big time by having Barry and Iris grow up together as half siblings.


1. They're not blood
2. Barry was Joe's foster son not his adopted son. Barry isn't adopted.

I agree it is a bit creepy but while they did grow up together they were never officially brother and sister. Barry was always Joe's foster kid and he always viewed Iris more as a best friend than an actual sister IMO. I don't think we have ever seen them referred to as brother and sister. Joe might see them that way but Barry and Iris never considered themselves as siblings.



    Quote:
    So, when I watched Iris die, I didn't care. Even more, I actually hope it happens. No hate towards Iris, I like the character. It's just pretty gross seeing Barry having the hots for his half sister. He needs someone else, someone better.



    Quote:
    Bring back Patty Spivott!


She was cute. Iris is too. I knew Patty couldn't last but I was hoping their relationship would have gotten serious before she left. I didn't get the vibe they were sleeping together.

      Jay warns him that this is why speedsters should NOT Time Warp, especially to the future. He also reminds him that the future is always shifting and turning and that what Barry saw may or may not happen and to live in the present.



    Quote:
    Who wants to place bets that Barry will IGNORE this advice and go against all logic and try saving Iris anyway? And as a result of saving Iris and ignoring this piece of advice, he screws up the time line...AGAIN.


of course.


    Quote:
    Everyone knows the pattern by now...


Barry has a problem. Barry gets advice. Barry ignores advice. Barry creates another problem by ignoring the advice. Barry wonders why nothing works out for him.

      Quote:
      Barry gets his job back and of course he unmasked himself to his captive colleague to show trust and that his colleague was under Savitar control as Alchemy, blah blah blah.



    Quote:
    *Slams head on desk* I was almost screaming at my computer screen at this scene. Barry will be LUCKY if this doesn't come and bite him on the butt later. He is THE BIGGEST idiot ever for revealing his secret identity to a rival.



    Quote:

      Quote:
      Seriously at this point Barry needs to go public since he is unmasking so much.



    Quote:
    I know, right? Everyone but the average citizen knows Barry is the Flash! He might as well go public. This has gone beyond ridiculous now.

      Quote:
      Episode ends with Barry showing Iris the new apartment he obtained and that it is in both their names....

        Quote:

        Fun episode, great to see Hamil as the Trickster again. They need to have an episode where Trickster of Earth 1 and 3 team up. \:\)



    Quote:
    Oh please no. We don't need another "Captain Cold" problem where he shows up so often he nearly takes up half a seasons worth of episodes. Hamil's great, I'm fine with seeing him once, maybe twice, a season but that's it. There's no need to overdo it like the Showrunners have done with Captain Cold.

      Quote:
      Always nice to see Shipp back on the show and that as Golden Age Flash he is being a mentor to Barry and that he knows things about the Speed Force that he isn't telling Barry.



    Quote:
    Agreed.



    Quote:

      Quote:
      The whole Cisco/dead brother thing needs to be resolved for good. Did RF kill him or was it just Flashpoint in general.



    Quote:
    Agreed, I'm not liking this storyline with Cisco, it's turning him into a total dick. And for crying out loud, Cisco, GET A HAIRCUT! He'd look so much cooler with short hair.
