    having some trouble feeling my old excitement for any of this stuff anymore.

I kinda felt the same way. I stuck with the show through the bad years (seasons 2 and 3) but now that the show is trying to get back to basics I'm not feeling it even though I applaud the direction.

    Might be time for me to.....reevaluate.


    Anyway, Team Flash has spent the past 6 months stumbling around trying to handle things without Barry.

    Iris is in charge and refuses to try to get Barry back. Cisco disagrees and he has been working with Wells2, Felicity and others to get Barry back. He goes to get Caitlin who is working in a bar and is somehow NOT Killer Frost any longer, at least at the moment. She dodges the question about what she did to be Caitlin again.

To me it feels like Caitlin has sort of outgrown the other characters. I was glad to have her back but I found myself more interested in whatever she had been up to than coming back to the group.

    A super powered samurai appears and easily defeats Vibe and Kid Flash and gives 24 hours to bring him the Flash.

    Barry is taken from the speed force but his brain is a bit short circuited from his time in the speed force.

    Efforts to snap him out of it fail until Iris lets herself be taken hostage to help Barry wake up. As soon as Joe tells him that Iris is going to die, Barry powers up, grabs the new Flash suit that Cisco made and takes off. Everyone at STAR is tracking his speed, he is faster then ever now, wally comments that he himself never went that fast.

Speaking of Wally he was in Legends tonight for a few seconds.

    Flash saves Iris and beats the Samurai who turns out to be a sophisticated robot. Barry's brain appears to have rebooted finally and Caitlin comments that Barry is healthier then ever even for him.

The Thinker is clearly Evil Morty from Rick and Morty.

    Barry states he feels like he was reborn. Wally comments that Barry is now the fastest speedster ever.

Is his hair red now? Near the end I could have sworn his hair looked like it had been dyed red.

    Barry was writing gibberish that translates into "This House is bitchin". Nobody knows what it means and Barry doesn't remember writing any of that stuff or what it means.

He's seeing his future.

He's going to marry Iris, buy her a house and Iris is going to be pregnant with twins. He made some other line that alluded to Iris being pregnant.

    Many humorous pop culture references, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Stan Lee, and more.

    We learn at the end that Caitlyn is still Killer Frost and that she can change back and forth, but some schizophrenia may be part of her now. Also nice paraphrase from the Hulk "Dont make Frosty, you wouldn't like me when I'm frosty"

    Also earlier when Barry was flashing around the lab out of control, he gets decked with a cold blast and Caitlyn emerges from a room with a cold gun in her hands and says "You were expecting someone else?"

    We see the supervillain of the season at the end, and the whole samurai attack was to get The Flash back as part of some overall plan.

    articles on CBR indicate that while in the SF, Barry was living his entire life from beginning to end, ad nauseum. Thus explaining his confusion when he was freed, and that he may have some foreknowledge of things to come.

    Another article indicates Barry gets a new power this season......I suspect that he will finally learn how to travel both in time and also to alternate Earth's on his own without the speed tunnel/cosmic treadmill, or a tachyon booster or Cisco.

everybody needs a force field.

Barry also made a comment about how he didn't kill anyone, which means we are looking at a possible Trial of the Flash story....

....which means if they stick with the comic version that means Reverse Flash....
