    I just didn't get this episode at all. It was "A Christmas Carol" in the speedforce. Barry met 3 ghosts that were supposed to teach him lessons, but I don't know that they really did, and if they did it seems like Barry learned the wrong lessons.

    What did he learn from Eddie? - Nothing, he just ran faster than the demon thing and got to the elevator.

I thought Eddie had the best part of the 3 ghosts. His was the lesson I got not the other 2. Basically Barry got stuck in the speed force last season and to get out he had to promise he was over his dead mom issues and the Speed Force let him leave to be a hero (the speed force WANTS him to be a hero). That was like their one condition for letting him go...move past your dead mom shit. So they let him go and in the season 2 finale he breaks his promise to the speed force and breaks the universe by going back in time to save his mom. The Speed Force gave him one job to do...

    What did he learn from Ronnie?- Self sacrifice. He used the chest logo thing to kill demon Zoom knowing it would trap him (and Wally) forever. Not really a smart lesson to learn since it doesn't actually help either of them if they are both stuck in the speedforce.

    What did he learn from Snart?- Nothing because Jay comes in a saves the day. Jay displays the same lesson Barry had already learned self sacrifice.

    He does decide it should be him that faces Savitar and not Wally, but that doesn't feel like a lesson he learned, just something he decided he needed to do.

    So Jay is another in a long line of people that sacrifice themselves because they believe in Barry even though he seems to be an idiot who makes the same mistakes over and over again and just gets s$it lucky because people keep dying for him.

    Then the "wiser" Barry comes out of the speedforce and immediately shows that he learned the wrong lesson. Iris forgives him for being a jerk and tainting their engagement and he dumps her for no apparent reason.

    Meanwhile Jessie takes on Savitar and realizes he has a weakness, but then when her boyfriend is back home, she runs away to another dimension I guess because she knows no one takes her seriously on Earth 1? Or because she runs from her problems? or because...why do I even try to understand this dumba$$ show?
