    I'm gonna disagree here and say that I enjoyed the episode.

    I wasn't sure if I was going to watch the Arrowverse shows anymore because I've been disappointed with them, but overall I liked this episode. And if they stay enjoyable like this I'll keep watching.

    I liked that Barry was gone for a while and everyone had to find a way to deal with it and all the characters had some character development because of it.

    I do have some nitpicks though

    Are we supposed to think that Iris came into her own and became a great leader while Barry was gone? Or are we supposed to think that she bossed everyone around and they were too polite to stop her?

Both. But I've always believed every office needs an asshole who will tell people what to do instead of inviting chaos by letting everyone speak their mind. The worse bosses I ever had were the ones who tried to be friends with co-workers and came off as weak. The ones who were assholes at the end of the day I could still respect them. They were just trying to steer the ship in a direction.

    Joe's girlfriend thinks he's going to get rid of his record collection to make room in the house? Is she an alien impersonator? How could she date Joe and not understand that? If my wife had said that about my comics or sci-fi novels when we'd moved in together, I probably wouldn't have married her.

Pretty sure she was messing with him.

    Iris lets herself be captured because she believes it will suddenly make Barry better and it worked. That was some dumb s$it. If it had been a lie to snap him out of it that's one thing, but what if it hadn't worked? She had no plan B.

I must have looked away for a second...I don't remember that bit about Iris planning it.

    So glad Caitin has an honest to God plotline this year. She didn't have a life outside of Star Labs for far too long.

Or when she did one of the poor men she dated was always making googly eyes at her at Star Labs.

To me it's a crying shame that going into season 4 Caitlin is still so undeveloped as a character.

    Will Barry really be any different? It is convenient that he FEELS like he has received a clean slate, but is that really helpful. To me he gets a clean slate if he proves he has learned something from all his previous mistakes and won't make those mistakes again.

I'll take a clean slate. A clean slate implies no whining. I'd rather have a happy and dumb Barry than a miserable and self aware Barry. I'm burnt out on Barry angst. Let's just keep dumb blissfully unaware Barry for a season and see if it works out. Whenever he learns a life lesson it's just...painful to watch. Like after school special painful. And invariably he doesn't remember he learned the lesson the next season. How many times does he have to be reminded that he has to go faster to fix his problems?

    Where is Harrison Wells? Any Harrison Wells?

I imagine sleeping with that lady whose name I never learned that Harrison-19 wanted to sleep with.
