    Barry is happy to be back and can't seem to slow down. He's finalizing all the wedding plans ahead of schedule without telling Iris, he won't listen to advice and makes a bad call as the Flash and had to improvise fast to save lives he put at risk.

    Iris takes caitlyn's advice about couple's counseling.

    Cisco has a date with Gypsy, sort of......he ends up having to cancel it to work on the meta human case. Gypsy claims she gets it and leaves and Caitlyn assures Cisco he is in deep trouble \:\)

    The villain controls machines with his meta human power.

    Cisco basically Tony Stark's the Flash suit, however against this meta all that tech is a bad idea.

    Barry literally captures all the pieces of an exploding grenade.

    Iris cuts loose in the counseling about Barry leaving her to enter the SF.

I thought the bit where she complained about having to lie to their wedding guest list for 6 months about where Barry was was weird. The only people she seems to know are her family and the people who work at Star Labs and they all know where Barry is. (well maybe Linda from work...does she still work at the paper? Would Linda be invited since she dated Barry that time? For that matter where is Linda?)

    Cisco apologizes to Gypsy, he finds out that this day on her Earth is a special romantic holiday....1-1-1 day.....I'm thinking its on par with Valentines or Sweetest Day. IN the process of apologizing to her he realizes the solution to the meta and heads out, she comments to herself that he just doesn't get how dead he is \:\)

I did like the bit where they compared which earth had the weirdest holidays. It's refreshing to see people actually use the multiverse for something useful like jokes. When they try to squeeze drama out of the multiverse it seems forced. Just use it for the jokes.

    So basically Barry's suit becomes a comedic version of Iron man.....

I had a flashback to that silver age issue where Barry got really really fat when he was in raft mode.

    Cisco makes it up to Gypsy

So we've given up on the notion that Gypsy and Cisco are genetically similar counterparts via the multiverse right? I think he might freak out if he discovers they have versions of the same parents.

    Turns out this meta did NOT get his powers from the particle accelerator and he hints that more is to come.

Man this Kilgore guy was scraping the bottom of the barrel villain wise. They've used up all the good ones and we're left with this guy?

I hope to see more Captain Boomerang or Mirror Master this season. Or Trickster.

It seems like we never get a lot of mileage out of the rogues on this show. They show up from time to time but we seem to go years without seeing them again.

    Barry and Iris also see a news headline that states Oliver is GA.

    Still not feeling my old enthusiasm for any of this stuff.

The vibe I get is that this year is meant to be lighter and more comedic.
