Just random, not related to this Flash, but Mark Hamill's Trickster is one of my favorite villain performances. This was pre-Joker. And probably inspired by the 60's Batman villains

Post by: SCB on June 27, 2014, 05:39:07 AM
The first episode leaked online and I watched it.

The pilot was really well done. Very different than Arrow or Smallville, 100 times more fun than Agents of Shield. It didn't waste much time with his origin story and got to the powers right away. The actor is likeable, but a lot of us already knew that during Arrow. The special effects of him running and moving fast came off great.

I'm not feeling Iris as an interesting love interest or soul mate for Barry, but it's just the pilot.

Arrow really took it's time with their storylines and played the long game, so I'm wondering if Zoom is the final villain Barry faces at the end of season 1.

Now I just have to wait til mid October for episode 2...

Wentworth Miller (Prison Break) will be Captain Cold.
Title: Re: CW's Flash
Post by: DocSavage on August 06, 2014, 08:56:08 PM
Good choice for the role? 

Getting Cold right is pretty important, because he's Flash's most iconic Rogue..  His Lex Luthor or Slade Wilson, as far as name recognition goes.
Title: Re: CW's Flash
Post by: SCB on August 07, 2014, 01:56:40 AM
I'm not sure. Wentworth Miller always plays a likeable person. Is there any anti-hero version of Captain Cold? He did voice Deathstroke on Young Justice. Not a lot to go on as far as his range.

Also confirmed for this season are

Gorilla Grodd
Plastique
Girder
Reverse Flash (obvious)
Title: Re: CW's Flash
Post by: DocSavage on August 07, 2014, 10:11:11 PM
Likeable...?   Well, it varies..  Generally, he comes across as the "working class" anti hero.  Not evil or psychotic or anything.  More a guy just doing it to make a living, and doesn't justify what he's doing, but lives by a moral code (No killing women or children, no unneeded violence or property damage...)

He can be a total bastard, or he can be down to earth and relatable..  Depends on the writer.

But him and Wally were pretty much friends.

Well time travel is the root of Flash's origin in this. The Zoom that kills Barry's mom traveled to the past to do it.

I doubt there's much more to it though, other than who or what Harrison Wells is.

Actually, they've said in an interview time travel is a central part of the show, and time will be malleable.  We'll see how well they handle it.
Title: Re: CW's Flash
Post by: RealMarchHare on October 12, 2014, 06:43:52 PM
Time Travel has kind of always been a thing with The Flash though.  The New 52 exists because of him and the Flashpoint storyline which was time travel.

Yeah but you'll get plenty of non-time travel stuff with the Rogues week to week. Time travel will probably be the long term theme and eventually bring in Wally and Bart as well if they introduce the Speed Force.
Title: Re: CW's Flash
Post by: DocSavage on October 12, 2014, 07:33:53 PM
Do Wally and Bart even exist in the post Nu52 comics?  Which one's "Kid Flash"?

Would be kind of neat if they could work in Hal Jordon at some point, although I was always more of a Kyle Rayner fan.  Wally West and Kyle Rayner were pretty much OUR generations Flash and Green Lantern, when you think about it. 

Title: Re: CW's Flash
Post by: SupTool on October 12, 2014, 08:29:38 PM
Kid Flash is Bart. Wally is about to, if not already, make his Nu52 debut.


I agree wit Wally and Kyle being our generations Flash and GL. Hell, DC did a great job of organically building up Wally to be the Flash in the wake of Barry's sacrifice in Crisis,

It's usually played pretty sparingly in the comics, and fast and loose when it is..  Kind of like Dr. Who plays it, vs Looper.

Like how Barry was hanging out in the future with Iris, and had some half dozen meetings with Wally after his death.

Title: Re: CW's Flash
Post by: SCB on October 15, 2014, 02:05:24 AM
Well I waited three months for this episode, spoiling myself with the pilot over the summer and it was very satisfying and fun.

This was a great use of a C list villain in Multiplex, exposing Barry's unknown weakness of an unbelievably high metabolism, plus a little strategy to deal with an unlimited army. He's going to need it for Mirror Master one day.

I noticed when Barry is analyzing a crime scene, he has Sherlock analytical vision. I'm good with that. If you're going to steal from show, that's a great one.

Glad all of Barry's friends and allies are all united in making him succeed, kind of a Rocky 2 moment when Adrian finally gave Rocky the okay to fight and here his surrogate father gave him the okay to be the Flash. Caitlin as well. By the way keep name dropping Ronnie Raymond, looking forward to him on the show.

And now the 800 pound gorilla in the room not named Grodd. Harrison Wells wants the Flash to succeed more than anyone else and even knows his superhero name before he has it. It's screaming Zoom and I like it.

Great show so far.

Yeah, Smallville monster of the week is what I thought, too. 

Which isn't really a bad concept.

Smallville's biggest problem wasn't their monster factory concept, but simply the writing.  And the writer of Flash has a very good rep, so hopefully we get an Arrow success story, and not a Smaville "Well, at least they tried."

Title: Re: CW's Flash
Post by: SCB on October 22, 2014, 02:24:42 AM
Another good episode.

Using the Mist, who is a very obscure non-Flash villain was a good idea to once again display Flash's skills and powers, once he overcomes the learning curve. Standard villain of the week stuff, but fun nonetheless.

In traditional Arrow CW fashion, and I mean that in a good way, really taking their time with Firestorm. They've been planting seeds about Ronnie Raymond with Caitlin dropping his name. Now we meet him in a flashback, but that's it for now. I wonder if we're in store for a Dr. Manhattan moment where we see him put himself back together.

Nice moments with Barry's dad. Not sure he knows his son was the Flash in that moment, but based on Detective West knowing about Iris and his boyfriend, a father always knows.

As usual we get another piece of the Harrison Wells mystery. He purposely caused all this, including choosing Barry to get his powers and perhaps inadvertently creating Firestorm later. He needed the Flash to exist I'm assuming so he can exist as whoever he really is. Zoom seems so obvious and feels so right as well or as Wells.

I think next week is the Captain Cold episode plus Felicity crossover, so things pick up fast.

Title: Re: CW's Flash
Post by: SCB on October 29, 2014, 01:07:23 AM
Decent episode. Should have been better, but not sure how. I think I just had really high expectations since it's Captain Cold of all people.

Captain Cold was good, felt like they should have done more with his cold effects, but I don't know if there's is that much more., without going Mr. Freeze or Blizzard on AOS. I liked that he was a strategist with the cold gun, rather than just a guy who discovered a powerful weapon. Glad he got away at the end was started recruiting others. I like Wentworth Miller as Cold.

I figured Felicity would play a bigger role on Team Flash, but she was kind of just there.

No Harrison Wells evil reveal at the end, instead just being a dick to Cisco.

Election day next week, so next episode in a couple of weeks. Boo.
Title: Re: CW's Flash
Post by: RealMarchHare on October 29, 2014, 03:26:10 AM
They should do more with the gun later.  Cold built the gun in the comic and has all sorts of cool settings and what not on it.  As he didn't build it in this it's not surprising he doesn't have any yet but they hinted at him starting to tinker with it at the end of the episode.

I'm not sure Wells is an actual villain and isn't just some guy who is making sure Flash comes into existence.

Title: Re: CW's Flash
Post by: SCB on November 13, 2014, 12:31:08 PM
The 800lb gorilla in the room not named Grodd is Iris being terribly miscast and written. They have no chemistry and we have to uncomfortably watch the writers shoe horn them together. She's a generic Lois Lane/Laurel Lance from season 1 Arrow character.

Other than that, I love what they're doing with Flash's powers. They haven't introduced the idea of the Speed Force yet and treating Barry's powers as pure science. He's even limited by science. I like that he has to ask Cisco and Cat how fast he needs to run to accomplish specific things as opposed to just doing whatever he wants. I imagine if the Speed Force is ever introduced, he could bypass all that and maybe have a Neo from Matrix moment, but I prefer the limitations and learning curves for now.

Clancy Brown in a live action superhero show is huge fan service for me. If he were a little younger, he'd be a great live action Lex just as well as he was the voice in JLA/JLU. Plus now this show or universe has it's own General Ross.

And lastly, live action Grodd. Wow. Rise and Dawn of The Planet of the Apes really raised the bar on intelligent live action apes, so it's going to be really difficult to pull off for me, but I'm excited to see it done.

Another fun one. Freak of the week, but for purposes of this show, it works.

Girder was a fun villain, school bully with super powers, this universe's Colossus. I liked the Superman punch finish.

Good character work for Eddie finally. If he is a Reverse Flash, he's far from it right now.

Speaking of Reverse Flash, didn't expect to see him at all. I mean I've been assuming it's Harrison Wells this whole time, but the yellow streak was a delight to see comeback. Since that moment was meant for us to think it was Wells, I'm wondering if it really was. 

Somehow those young Barry moments are incredibly well done. I like each and every one.

Getting really close to the crossover mid season finales with Arrow and Flash.
Title: Re: CW's Flash
Post by: RealMarchHare on November 25, 2014, 01:30:20 AM
I think Zoom is Thawne based on the images posted earlier in the thread.  The guy in the suit is to big and bulky to be Wells but looks like Thawne.  Also the fact Thawne IS the original Zoom :P

Wells however I think might be Hunter Zolomon but being played off a bit more like a good guy than normal.  He'd still be Reverse Flash but suitless most likely.  If you think about it a lot of his actions play are designed to teach and grow Barry which fits right in with the Zoloman character just not quite as evil but still questionable.
Title: Re: CW's Flash
Post by: SCB on November 26, 2014, 12:52:56 PM
Good episode, not so much the villain or villains, just the story that was told around them with the mystery man Harrison Wells.

We know this is all leading to the Reverse Flash, but still uncertain which one and and whose who. Easy to speculate, but they've done a good job of keeping it extremely vague.

I'm wondering if Wells is waiting for a certain headline in the future newspaper or is Flash supposed to stay missing in the crisis?

Next week we finally get the two part crossover then the mid-season finale with Reverse Flash finally making his debut.

I think Zoom is Thawne based on the images posted earlier in the thread.  The guy in the suit is to big and bulky to be Wells but looks like Thawne.  Also the fact Thawne IS the original Zoom :P


FWIW, they said that was a stunt double in those leaked pics and that when Reverse Flash shows up, his face will be blurred out the same way Flash blurs his around Iris, keeping the mystery alive.

Even if it's a stunt double it's still to bulky.  Stunt doubles are specifically picked to be as similar in look to who they are doubling for.  That's all my opinion though

So we'll get Elongated Man, golden age Atom, and Damage?  :D

A fan of all three of them, but I never thought they'd make the cut, being pretty niche.

Don't know about Golden Age Atom as we have Ray Palmer over on Arrow.

God I'd love to have Alan Scott.  He'd be great to do as well since he has nothing to do with the Corps so it's not a magical ring giving him power.  They can make it natural through the reactor accident

Honestly, the more obscure, the more likely and easier for them to use. Almost every villain on Flash so far has been obscure and they're very creative on how to make them cool.

Big names like Harley Quinn and Blue Beetle were yanked from Arrow.

Great episode.

Loved how Arrow is seen as something else entirely from all of Barry's team mates. Wait til they hear about Batman (even though the Arrow is Batman in this universe, for now)

Flash vs Arrow fight was very Batman vs. Superman, although with less powers. Nice mini training session between the two as well. Now that they got the fight out of the way, I'm looking forward to the actual team up we didn't get tonight.

I think they planted the seeds for Eddie becoming the Eobard Thawne Reverse Flash. I don't think it's him in his current state that kills Barry's mother. But in the future he could become him and this is where it started. Maybe he starts that meta human task force and never catches the Flash. But when he finds out Barry and Flash are the same, it pushes him over the edge with his feelings about Iris.

Then again he could still be the red herring for Wells, who Oliver pointed out is off. I assume whoever Wells is, since he's from the future he knows all about the Arrow, but now he knows his secret. Wonder if that will have any repercussions. Either way, we meet the Reverse Flash next week I believe.

They really didn't waste time in the episode towards the end. We saw the mother of Oliver's son, I was waiting for her to call him Conner at some point and Firestorm I did not expect. At first I thought it was Heatwave from the Captain Cold episode earlier, but totally came back to me.

Really liked the boomerang and how dangerous it was, looking forward to Captain Boomerang using it tomorrow night on Arrow.

I don't think Iris still works in this role, the actress anyway. It made it worse when she was a foil for Felicity, who seems to go great with both Ollie and Barry. And I'm not sure the show itself realizes how much more chemistry Barry has with Caitlin than Iris.

Still enjoying Cisco. I think I like him because he's Donatello and Michelangelo in one person. It was great when they were debating Diggle on who would win between the Flash and Arrow. Ultimate nerd fight.

I liked the brief moments between Caitlin and Felicity, the two genius women on opposite shows. I'm sure we'll get a scene on Arrow later this season with Caitlin calling her about Sarah's death.

Alright, off to watch Agents of Shield and excited for Arrow tomorrow night.

I don't think he's a red herring to distract from Wells.  I stand by Wells being Hunter Zoloman Reverse Flash but not in actual suit or anything.  Just personality and motivation wise.  Thawne is Reverse Flash and killed Barry's mother.  Remember that they have stated time travel is part of the show and have already shown it in some regard to Wells (whether he is from the future or not remains to be seen.  Could just be future predicting tech he has).  As such it's perfectly logical for Thawne to still be Thawne and not Reverse Flash yet but have Reverse Flash show up as they travel through time.  Barry himself is present when his Mom dies.  You can make out that there are two people fighting in that sequence

Well in somewhat epic news for us old school fans of the original Flash TV show, Mark Hamill is going to reprise his role as the Trickster in the second half of the season. He was also the voice of the Trickster in JLU. Pretty awesome.

I know it's unlikely, but I'd love it if he channeled the Joker voice for one moment in the show.

Title: Re: CW's Flash
Post by: SCB on December 09, 2014, 09:14:24 PM
So they actually revealed who the Reverse Flash is. It's been Wells all along as expected. Well it was always him or Eddie and they teased Eddie right down to the wire with Reverse Flash facing him down and not harming him.

So now, can Wells also be a red herring for...himself? How can he be at two places at the same time? The tachyon. The time time travel. The speed at which he travels. Future Wells and current Wells could be working together. Or it could be future Eddie and current Wells working together. I'll stick with Wells at face value for now.

Reverse Flash himself was done extremely well. The special effects, the small pieces of dialog, his power levels were all on point.

Slow moments in between since this was a weird Christmas episode, but Firestorm delivered in his two scenes.

I liked that they acknowledged the red blur in Barry's mom's death. Wondering if that was Barry or any of the other Flash's trying to help him like Wally or Jay.

Good episode. Slow moments get negated by how helpless everyone seemed next to Reverse Flash, as they are.

Then Flash is probably not for you.  As has been stated his stories revolve around it A LOT.

Still not 100% certain Wells is the full Reverse Flash.  I mean, if he is, it's Zoloman like still.  I think Eddie is still in the mix with all that.

Firestorm was awesome and having him outright say that name was so awesome
Title: Re: CW's Flash
Post by: SCB on December 10, 2014, 03:11:13 AM
I think Wells could literally be Eobard Thawne and Eddie is his grandfather. Wells needs that tachyon to build the Cosmic Treadmill and make sure Barry grows up to be a great Flash, so one day Zoom/Reverse Flash can exist.

And like with all time traveling loop holes and paradoxes, how are there two Reverse Flashes working together? I don't know since time travel is complicated and...imaginary.

However when Barry and Reverse Flash were in the football field standing still, there were two different red and yellow lines circling them, who I assume are Flash and Reverse Flash from a different timeline chasing each other since time is relative.

Yeah so if you hate time travel, this isn't your thing, but I can't believe we're watching a Flash tv show about all this.

That's the difference between Firestorm and guys like Human Torch and Pyro. He deals his use of powers with science.

Strong return for the show.

I love that they made Captain Cold a thinking man's villain. He's not just some guy firing a cold gun, he thinks everything far ahead instead of just being evil. Really nice dynamic between he and Heatwave in their prison break reunion.

If I had to guess, I think he taught himself how to make the cold gun, rather than keep stealing it from Cisco every time. I was really happy they got away at the end like that with his sister.

Another subtle moment I enjoyed was Wells wanting to get up and save the Flash between those drone training sessions. This just drives home that he needs to Flash.

Also like the fun side stuff of him using his powers to clean up the house. Wish there were more scenes of him eating ten pizza boxes or something.

Post by: RealMarchHare on January 29, 2015, 03:30:05 PM
Uh, ok now I'm really confused.  Wells is a speedster.  That is now confirmed.  Is he actually the Reverse Flash though?  All the signs are pointing to yes now but it seems too obvious.  I'm starting to come around to the thought people had early on that he IS BARRY from the future.  Joe did research and pointed out that Wells didn't show up with a lab until AFTER Nora died.  Wells is REALLY concerned in getting Barry trained and keeping him safe.  He also has future tech and is concerned with a headline about The Flash missing.

I think what's happened was he followed Reverse Flash back in time to protect his Mom.  In the process he failed and also got trapped here as he no longer had the energy to go through time.  So instead he set up a lab to fix that issue.  In the process he realized he is the cause for the accident that gave him his powers so he continued on that course and has now decided to mentor himself in the hopes of fixing the future.  He is also still trying to get back to the future and wanted the Tachyon machine to help power himself up.  They did specifically state that theoretically Tachyon's could assist with time travel.  I think the reason he's using a Reverse Flash Suit is because Barry recognizes it from his childhood as evil so he's using it as a catalyst for the training.
Title: Re: CW's Flash
Post by: SCB on January 29, 2015, 04:03:29 PM
Wells is probably 10 years older than Barry, 15 at most, so it'd be a giant stretch if the two look NOTHING alike. It's not like Wells is in his 70's, he's a pretty young guy, even next to Barry. Plus he's a murderer. Barry will never be a something like that in the future.

I've seen this theory generally online where people refuse to believe he's the Reverse Flash despite all the evidence because it makes too much sense and they need a twist like Wells is Barry from the future with a different face.

Plus him being protective of Barry is somewhat consistent with him really being Eobard Thawne. He worshiped Barry Allen as a hero. Barry's mom needed to die to motivate Barry to become a great hero one day, driven by his mother's murder and clearing his dad's name before getting his powers.

Eddie isn't intelligent enough to be the Reverse Flash we saw, so I'm still thinking he's Eobard's grandfather and possibly a different Reverse Flash one day. I don't think they're simultaneously using Zolomon and Thawne at the same time because it'd be very confusing to casual fans.

Good episode. With villains like Peeka-Boo and Multiplex earlier in the season, I'm looking forward to Mirror Master one day. They're probably waiting for Flash evolve his powers a bit more, phase through objects.

I think they showed Barry using those spinning hands from the comics and cartoon though.

Very CW moments tonight with Barry and the girls, but done well. I liked that they simultaneously teased Barry and Caitlin while introducing Wally's future wife and looking past Iris.

And of course solid teaser ending with Grodd.

Linda being introduced was amazing.  I marked out hard.  Yea, the opening showed him learning that he can vibrate objects.  Perfect timing.  He just got done dealing with a villain that used vibrations which has sparked the idea in him.  They really mad Cisco look stupid though.  He's clearly read Steinman's book on transmutation but couldn't put two and two together....

Grodd....OMG Grodd.  My girlfriend doesn't know comics but loves these shows and loves seeing my reactions and learning extra info from me.  She rememberd Grodd being brought up twice earlier and got a little excited.  Asked me what is up with this "Gorilla Grodd".  Simplest explanation.  Planet of the Apes.  Her response..."uh oh, that's not good"

Damn that was good. I said the same thing about Arrow last week and this felt the same, while giving us a very different show.

This was a Firestorm origin episode and they made him pretty awesome while simultaneously developing Martin Stein as a separate character in Ronnie Raymond's younger body. I was convinced that wasn't Ronnie speaking and enjoyed the Martin Stein side of the character.

For television budgets, those were some good special effects for Firestorm and a nice cliffhanger, making me wonder, if Ronnie and Martin do split apart, what would that even look like.

I was surprised the CW love moments worked so well with Barry, Linda, and Iris. It wasn't cheesy and actually felt good watching Barry enjoy being a superhero, giving him the confidence to be around a new girl. And I liked him standing up to Iris's BS and sabotage. Guys like Batman, Spider-Man, and even Arrow treat their superhero job as a curse, but Barry loves it and in a way helps him live a better social life.

And lastly, I loved the Cisco/Detective West side story investigating the murder of Barry's mom. The mirror thing was out there, but with everything else on this show, not that far fetched, but the results of the blood test was pretty awesome. The Reverse Flash wasn't Harrison Wells, which is cool because it means another one is out there fighting Barry in another timeline. And future Barry was there as well.

Yeah loving where this show is going.

Not future Barry with the blood test and based on them looking nothing alike and being not that far in age, it would make no sense.

If Wells isn't the Reverse Flash at the scene of the crime, I'm now leaning towards Eddie. Wells might be the anti-hero Reverse Flash who is intelligent, pragmatic, and in a twisted way does care for Barry, and the other one is a psychotic less intelligent killer like a future Eddie maybe.

I'm curious if we'll ever get a Reverse Flash vs Reverse Flash fight in the future.

Hunter Zoloman, who I've also theorized Wells might be, is the closest to an anti-hero Reverse Flash.  Everything Zoloman does he claims is being done to make Barry a better Flash.  Again, something that seems to match up with what Wells is doing.

The fact is there are so many possibilities based on previous comic knowledge that we are drawing from that we could be missing something obvious.

And the special effects for him have been great. When they said they were leaving town, I really wanted to see more of them and sad to see them go.

Clancy Brown is a great villain or was depending on what happened to him at the end. I'd like to see more of him, maybe as The General. But as a General Ross type character, he was great to see him tackle meta humans and the Flash with his super weapons.

I loved all the time travel talk, including referencing Back To the Future and Terminator. Curious how they approach and handle that.

And phenomenal ending with god, I mean Grodd. Wells is deliciously fun to watch be evil. I was wondering why he'd help Eiling by delivering Stein to him, turns out he just wanted to see how Firestorm worked and could have taken out Eiling any time he wanted. Instead he waited and delivered him to Grodd instead. So far so good. Can't wait to see a full Grodd episode and how they handle him.

The online reaction has been nuts for that ending. Hope the ratings reflect that.

Not surprised he was Eobard Thawne, but him saying it out loud made all the difference in the world. Plus him clarifying that he meant to kill Barry and not his mom and Eddie is a distant relative put a smile on my face. Then killing Cisco with that comic accurate speed hand, wow.

Yeah I knew Cisco couldn't just die like that, but I didn't see Barry time traveling directly after that and un-doing that episode.

That new Weather Wizard who pretty much got buried under all this was pretty awesome and pretty close to killing Joe. And Iris found out Barry was the Flash.

If the next episode is a do-over of that day, I'm wondering how fast he defeats the new Weather Wizard then just misses out on all the Harrison Wells stuff because it's a return of the Rogues with Captain Cold's sister.

Either way, OMG DAT episode!
Title: Re: CW's Flash
Post by: RealMarchHare on March 18, 2015, 04:49:24 PM
That episode was so well crafted that when he killed Cisco we thought it was legit.  We completely forgot he is in The Trickster episode later in the season.  Girlfriend was practically crying.

Weather Wizard was an after thought in this episode by the end of it all.  Everything else, including Barry's weird relationship with Linda/Iris was more important by the mid-point of the episode.  Honestly he was brought in just to introduce him again to put him on The Rogue's.  It was actually a good episode to do it with.  He was back for family revenge so it was a good way to work in the personal family life of Barry/Iris.  Did not see her finding out coming.  So well done and her reaction was perfect.  Still don't like her though and her interactions at the bowling alley didn't help.

The entire point of the episode though...Thawne.  HOLY SHIT FUCK BALLS YES!  I don't know how that could have been done any better.  The name, the attitude, the vibrating hand.  He showed up and all I could think was oh shit you are so fucked Cisco.  At least you figured it out.

There's a joke in there somewhere about blindly believing anything a scientist says.

This was good, but a typical episode of Flash, which isn't bad at all. A typical episode is usually awesome and they set the bar last week with a season finale quality episode.

Taking out Weather Wizard easily was expected.

I'm glad things with Iris didn't work out. The show did a really smart thing last week with Barry and Iris. They got the whole reveal that he's the Flash and he still having feelings about her out of the way and erased it, at least for now.

Plus Barry was getting too cocky with knowing what was going to happen, glad he was forced to take a step back.

I know he's not for everyone, but I love the campiness Wentworth Miller brings to Captain Cold.

"You're a good brother Cisco"

"I'm sure you're a good sibling too"

"That's debatable"

"The Rogues. Cute."

I think they setup a future episode where the Rogues team up against Reverse Flash based on that mutual respect.

Also really liked them re-visiting the Cisco/Wells scene in a completely different context.

With Barry being suspicious of Wells now, I'm guessing the all star team up episode coming up is when Barry finds out and needs the help of Arrow, Atom, and Firestorm to take him on, maybe.

Tricksters next week. Beyond excited. Hamill, the Star Wars haircut, the Joker voice possibly, the interaction between he and Barry's dad.

I'm giddy just thinking about next week's episode.

Anyone who doesn't like Wentworth Miller and this show's version of Captain Cold are just wrong.  He is amazing in the role and they've written it so well.

The Rogue's taking on Reverse Flash makes sense as they've done it before.  Actually if you haven't read it one of the best stories involving villains is about them and deals with it.  http://www.amazon.com/Flash-The-Rogues-DC-Comics/dp/1563899507

That was a fun and unexpected episode.

Mark Hammil was fantastic. Love the Joker/Trickster voice.

There was zero subtlety in those Silence of The Lambs and Star Wars references, but I enjoyed them.

Unmasking in front of his dad wasn't surprising as much as it was expected, but in front of Eddie I never saw coming.

SPEED FORCE! Finally introduced into this universe. The voice acting by Wells during that scene was epic. Whenever he takes of his glasses, you know Reverse Flash ^$@* is about to go down.

It's an interesting dynamic they've setup on the show with Barry, Joe, and Eddie all knowing Wells is the Reverse Flash and and having to work with him til they figure out what to do with him.

Thawne stealing the look of the real Harrison Wells did throw me for a loop, but not sure how significant that was, but it does provide a legit cover for his past if anyone looks into him.

Looks like the show goes on a one week break next week since Flash is out of sync with Arrow's timeline.

LOSH could work as a pre Superboy gains membership thing.  Just have core group of Saturn Girl, Lightning Lad, Cosmic Boy, or something.  Make them young, and have them reference Superboy as their inspiration, and maybe throw out the concept of inviting him on board someday (Say, Cisco brings suggests it, and the trio laughs it off initially)

Yeah -- that could work. If Cisco is alive after this season, I could see one of his future progeny being a founding member of LOSH. The show has already

begun the concept of a character being from the future with Dr. Wells or the Reverse Flash coming from that time period. Maybe as the show opens up more, LOSH could go back in time to chase after Reverse Flash or the criminal that they know as....Professor Zoom.

Then they can do Impulse and maybe have The Flash go back in time to WWII and meet Jay Garrick Flash and reveal that Barry Allen isn't the only one who donned the mantle.

Title: Re: CW's Flash
Post by: SCB on April 16, 2015, 10:08:47 AM
And we're back.

Excited for this one since this is the Atom/Felicity crossover.

Ray and Felicity's personalities and overall dynamic work so much better on the Flash since it's already filled with the fun STAR Labs crew. Cisco and Ray are already Nerd Bros. Felicity and Caitlin are the hot nerdy chicks. And based on the ending to Arrow this week, it all but confirms Ray belongs more on Flash than Arrow, going in to the spin off show next year.

Didn't get much of Emily Kinney as the Bug Eyed Bandit this, but it was hard to look past Barry not being able to figure out how to get around the bees with all the various speed powers he's picked up the last few episodes against Weather Wizard and other people. At least they didn't make her sing.

Loved the self awareness of the show that EVERYONE knows Barry is the Flash except Iris. She's still not working for this show, as she's the typical CW archetype girl shoved down our throats like Laurel and Thea previously, who are super annoying and overbearing.

Cisco gaining memories of his murder from a separate timeline was an interesting twist. I'm still hoping Barry travels back to that original timeline, somehow.
Title: Re: CW's Flash
Post by: SCB on April 21, 2015, 09:48:10 PM
Wow that was fun.

They snuck in another Flash/Arrow crossover under the radar with the B team cop dads teaming up with Cisco and Laurel coming up with The Canary Cry.

There was great story development for Lance with those mini father-to-father pep talks with Joe. Curious to see if this gets followed up on Arrow at all and of course excited to see the Canary Cry.

I loved Cisco geeking out over The Canary. He's a big fan boy and fun to see Laurel not so serious. Everyone on the Flash just comes off better.

The shapeshifter, Everyman, could have been really generic like The Bug Eyed Bandit last week, but he was pretty smart in his shape shifting and overall getting away til the very end. It created a bunch of fun scenarios such as Barry kissing Caitlin, Flash vs. Flash, Eddie going evil, plus turning into a little girl in trouble. Only thing I thought would have happened was him turning into Harrison Wells and teasing that eventual reveal.

I'm enjoying the Eddie/Barry/Flash bro-mance. Actually the second bro-mance in this episode with the cop-dad bro-mance. All good stuff.

And everyone going into Wells' secret hideout was awesome to finish out the episode. Still no idea how it's all going to end.

Title: Re: CW's Flash
Post by: SCB on April 29, 2015, 05:33:39 PM
You think Thawne hates Barry because Eddie never got Iris centuries ago? Even Eddie thought this was all about him til Eobard laughed him off at the end of the episode.

Putting aside how petty and small that is, aside, last night Reverse Flash prevented Eddie from proposing to Iris. He wants to prevent that because Barry and Iris belong together. Only reason Eddie ended up with Iris is because Thawne/Wells caused the particle accelerator explosion ahead of time. Iris marrying Eddie disrupts the Thawne lineage and could possibly affect Eobard from existing.

He might want to kill Iris now to prevent Eddie and Iris from having kids.
Title: Re: CW's Flash
Post by: SCB on May 06, 2015, 11:46:27 AM
Finally the Grodd episode.

Whenever the show lacks Reverse Flash as the main villain, it feels quieter. That worries me when eventually he disappears as the lead villain.

That being said, Grodd was extremely well done. He wasn't even defeated, just mildly inconvenienced. His size combined with his telepathy made him probably Flash's second most formidable villain other than Reverse Flash.

Iris is probably the second worst female on a superhero show behind Barbara on Gotham, but this show addressed all her problems in this episode out in the open and kind of fixed them, depending on how they handle her on Team Flash from this point on. Smallville would drag out stories like this for nearly a decade in real time, but Flash got the love interest knowing the superhero's secret out of the way in season 1.

I loved the seeds they planted with General Eiling. They could do the meta human Hulk like story with him later, but I like him as the General Ross for this show who pops up to team up with Flash as an unlikely ally later. Clancy Brown is just great on superhero shows in general.

And I have no idea where they're going with Eddie. Eobard spilled the beans about Iris never ending up with him and he being the loser of the Thawne lineage, but does that immediately make him evil? Not on this show but we'll see.

Tom Cavanaugh to me has just become a gold mine of villain scenes and monologues to the point of becoming on par with Tom Hiddleston as Loki. I hope he's around forever.

They didn't offer any explanation on how Star Labs goes on without Wells, but they did show us how Team Flash does in Star Labs.

Sad to see the season coming to a close in a couple of weeks.

I know what you mean about quieter.  I walked away from that episode satisfied but as I watched I felt let down.  They'd been building to Grodd for awhile and we finally got the episode.  He was great.  Unfortunately it came AFTER the big Wells/Reverse Flash reveal and with him showing up monologuing throughout the episode it just made me want them to do more with Reverse Flash than Grodd
Title: Re: CW's Flash
Post by: SCB on May 13, 2015, 10:09:16 AM
Fun episode.

Captain Cold is great. They must love the guy to give him so many episodes and make him the regular on the spin off. Captain Cold's reaction to Barry coming to him for help reminded me of Thor going to Loki in Dark World, "oh you must be desperate if you're coming to me for help"

Everything between Cisco and Golden Glider was fantastic, including people's reaction to them on the show, "wait, you kissed her?!" I just love the way she's portrayed. Missed Heat Wave.

No idea where they're taking Eddie, but they've made him more interesting than Officer Pretty Boy in the start of the season.

Final battle was great, but I have to think it was too easy to defeat Reverse Flash considering how far he thinks ahead. Grodd is still out there and Reverse Flash's plans are pretty well thought out and much like Ultron, he doesn't give them away.

This supposedly takes place before Olliver gets married last week on Arrow. Loved that he used to the nano tech from Atom on Reverse Flash. And Reverse Flash spoils how long he'll live, so no Lazarus Pit and immortality for Olliver.

Firestorm looked fantastic. He needs to get as many episodes as Captain Cold.

Caitlin getting wammied kind of hinted at what she'd be like as Killer Frost. She has bitter feelings towards Cisco and what happened to Ronnie.

Also felt like they might be giving Joe a season 2 love interest with that hot DA.

Curious where they're going in the finale. Looks like Flashpoint.

I thought the episode was great but was confused about the inclusion of Amell at first when watching the opening credits.  Thought the writers forgot their own continuity.  Made sense by the end though with him hinting at he's going to need help soon.  Also funny they confirm Ollie is a good guy still on the show that isn't his XD  Only question is how did he get away from Nanda Parbat to help with that XD

I think losing was his plan

I watched the finale twice. First time I was disappointed because of my expectations. The actor has been so amazing the entire season, I was rooting for the Reverse Flash the entire time and hoped it would revolve around him, even the ending. That obviously didn't happen, but watching it a second time knowing that, it was a satisfying finale that left me wanting another season.

Loved that they opened right away with Barry/Thawne in the prison. You got to see exactly why people loved this guy. He carried the season on his back as the villain you love to watch. Great performance here. Even though he was erased at the end, we still don't know what future Barry did to him and I think that's a hint that we haven't seen the last of him.

Rest of the episode was basically all the important people in Barry's life giving their advice and saying goodbye. Lot's of good character stuff, especially with Barry's two dads.

And the last ten minutes was the real finale and a lot of fan service - we got to see

- The Flash museum

- Caitlin as Killer Frost

- Jay Garrick's helmet

- Reverse Flash reveals Cisco has powers (Vibe)

- Legends of Tomorrow cameo

Sad to see Reverse Flash erased, but I have to think it can't be that simple. It's a reverse paradox if you will. Reverse Flash went back in time to kill Barry and realized he can't exist without Barry turning into the Flash. So he helps Barry turn into the Flash. With RF gone, how does this version of Flash/Barry exist?

Plus with Eddie's body going into the wormhole, I hope that means the Thawne lineage can still continue. Isn't Impulse part Thawne as well?

Barry running into the wormhole actually has me really excited as the possibilities with that plot device are endless. This season they relied heavily on creating new villains and characters on the particle accelerator accident. Now they can go much further with who or what comes out of that wormhole, including playing with the Multiverse.

They let Killer Frost out of the bag. If they don't want to turn Caitlin bad, they can bring in an alternate version of her for example. Or if they want to keep playing with evil versions of the Flash, bring in Johny Quick from Crime Syndicate. Jay Garrick of course would be awesome, especially if he's Barry's dad in an alternate timeline.

Aside form that, hope to see Mirror Master, Wally, and Impulse at some point. Maybe even Hunter Zolomon later.

And lastly hope Eobard Thawne is a re-occurring character in Barry's life like Loki is for Thor.

Great season.

Wow that was a great character episode.


Loved everything with the Captain Cold family.


Michael Ironside was a great villain. Nice Smallville reunion since he played Lois's dad and Golden Glider her sister.


Still enjoying Wentworth Miller's character work as Captain Cold. They're obviously planting seeds for him to rise to the occasion in Legends of Tomorrow.


I hate when CW forces relationships on us, but Cisco/Golden Glider and Patty/Barry are actually really enjoyable moments. These are fun likable women, unlike the typical CW girls in Thea/Laurel/Iris/last season's Felicity. Caitlin/Jay is fun as well.


Also great character work by Joe. This guy is fantastic. I was kind of dreading the whole Iris's mom storyline, but I'm now realizing it's likely  setup to introduce Wally as Iris's brother and Barry's surrogate speedster brother, maybe.


OR! Is Zoom some twisted version of future Wally?


Looks like they're setting up a new Firestorm next week.


The teases with Wells coming back have been fun. I'm guessing the twist will be that this version is genuine and actually one of the good guys since no Thawne behind it.
Title: Re: CW's Flash
Post by: DocSavage on October 29, 2015, 07:52:36 PM
No thoughts on Firestorm's return?

Personally, I thought Ronnie was better cast. 

Anyways, was thinking:  at some point, they HAVE to put Jay Garrick in the drivers seat..  Give him back his powers, and find an excuse to get Barry out of the way for awhile..

They did something similar in the Wally days with Flash "1 million" taking over (Before DC One Million happened.)

The sub was a screwup, so hopefully Jay would be treated better, but it's a natural plot twist that could be interesting.  Captain Cold having to come up with new tricks for the guy who's identity he doesn't know, for example.
Title: Re: CW's Flash
Post by: SCB on October 30, 2015, 03:04:58 AM
Firestorm 2.0 story was fun, as was everyone rallying together to save Stine. I don't think the episode would have held it's own though without that wallop of a ending with the Wally West hint, KING SHARK out of nowhere looking good, even better than Grodd, then Harrison 2.0 Wells shooting him to send us off.


I think the actor that plays Ronnie had other filming commitments and said he'd be back at some point. They did cast Jason Rusch last season, but they felt the actor wasn't right for everything they have planned for Firestorm, going into Legends of Tomorrow next year.


Based on the previews, I think Jay will be the good cop mentor to Wells 2.0's bad cop to Barry.


I'm sure Jay gets his powers back. That's going to be the pay off and the show is great at giving you what you want.
Title: Re: CW's Flash

Earth 2 Harrison Wells is a dick and awesome! So great to have Wells back on the show.


Looks like his daughter from Earth 2 is Jesse Quick, at least the actress cast as her.


Never cared for Dr. Light in the comics, but really cool in live action.


Cisco is dating future Hawkgirl.


Loved the Yin and Yang dynamic of Wells and Jay Garrick.


Why didn't anyone ask who Zoom is when Wells said he created him?


Lots of teasing of Caitlin being Killer Frost one day, at least lots of winking at the audience.


Great episode. Zoom is a beast.

Wow that was incredible. So many great moments I did not expect.


First five minutes and they already show us Supergirl and other easter eggs.


Fantastic scene with Barry calling his mom. You know Kevin Smith cried  :cry:


Loved Killer Frost. They've been teasing this forever and she turned out great as a villain, as well as with evil Ronnie. Nice touch with him locking up Martin Stein long ago.


Also loved evil Cisco with his vibe powers fully realized. Their interaction was great with the Cloud City reference.


Jay Garrick briefly gaining his powers as the Flash was awesome and they found a great use for that old fashioned goofy hat of his.


And Zoom is a beast. He's legitimately scary as a villain. This really left me wanting more, especially with who might be in the iron mask.

Maybe the guy in the mask is Jay?

Or, what if Zoom is related to Jay, without being him?  Like how Impulse can create speed force duplicates, that act just like he does.

So, sort of a Sentry =Void thing.

That's why Jay lost his speed.  And why he needs Barry's speed.  He feeds off it like a vampire..
Title: Re: CW's Flash
Post by: DocSavage on February 20, 2016, 03:03:14 PM
Well, this is interesting:

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reverse-Flash

Quote
In DC's Tangent Comics reality, Reverse Flash is an evil holographic duplicate of Lia Nelson (the Flash), created by a sinister government agency. She was charged with negative ionic energy to disperse Flash's photon-based form. However Flash's lightwave powers outmatched Reverse-Flash's and Reverse-Flash was destroyed. This Reverse Flash only appeared in one issue, Tangent Comics: The Flash (December 1997).

Also, this:

Quote
Thaddeus Thawne aka Inertia first appeared in Impulse #51, created by Todd DeZago and Mike Wieringo.

Inertia was a clone of Bart Allen. He originally fought Allen when he was Impulse. Later when Bart aged five years after Infinite Crisis and became the Flash, Inertia fought him again. Inertia was responsible for Allen's death and when Wally West returned he took revenge by paralyzing Inertia and putting him in the Flash Museum. During Final Crisis: Rogues' Revenge, he was used by Libra and Zoom to try to get the Rogues to join the new Secret Society. He stole Zoom's powers, called himself Kid Zoom, and was killed by the Rogues, who blamed him for making them kill Bart Allen.


So evil clones are a common enough theme from the comics.

Well we got Jay as Zoom, presumably the Earth 1 Jay, Hunter Zolomon.

Sure it does. This is about as subtle as last season's Reverse Flash reveal, not straight forward at all.

It makes sense now that's it's revealed...sort of.

Jay is sick and dying and needs speed to live. Zoom needs speed like a drug addict.

Assuming Zoom is Jay's doppelgänger, they share a similar need biologically. Zoom might be trying to avoid what is happening to Jay.

Still don't know whose in the iron mask, but I think last week he was trying to reveal Zoom's identity.

Does that mean the real Jay Garrick is actually dead? Is there another Jay in the iron mask?

If they can come up with an explanation for all of this, they'll top season 1 with the Reverse Flash mystery and intrigue.

Either Hunter Zolomon is Zoom or Zoom kidnapped him and he's now in the iron mask.

Or Jay has known about Zoom this whole time and has kept it a secret, including Hunter Zolomon not being anyone of significance.
Title: Re: CW's Flash
Post by: DocSavage on February 24, 2016, 08:52:53 AM
Lie, or plot hiccup:

Didn't Jay claim Zoom stole his speed?  And later change his claim to the Velocity drug being at fault?

I also read an interview recently where the writer claims no one would suspect Jay's the villain, and that the audience would blindly believe everything he says.  Since the reveal "just" happened without any details, I'm thinking this is a "red herring" type confirmation Zoom is NOT Earth 2 Jay, and a look alike character instead, but also hasn't been 100% honest with the team..
Title: Re: CW's Flash
Post by: Zandrax on February 26, 2016, 12:42:26 AM

Time travel, maybe?

But hey, maybe we're missing the obvious here.  Thawne stole a man's look and identity before  so why couldn't he do it again?  And HE LOST HIS SPEED, so velocity 9 fits his needs perfectly.

Reverse Flash is Jay, and Zoom is...  someone else.  And the guy in the mask, THAT is the real Jay Garrick.

According to the wiki, he aged into dust or something.

If this was the comics, it could be speed lending, but so far no one's shown that trick on this show.  So probably the device killed him.

Oh well, it was just a theory.  And velocity 9 would have been the perfect fix for Reverse Flash's dilemma.

So far, it looks like Jay.

Only possible "out" is if the guy in the Iron Mask is the "real" Jay, and the guy who took his place either stole his memories and look (Still not giving up on my Reverse-Flash theory :p ), or they're somehow both Jay, from different timelines.

The timestream duplicate suggests there's some kind of time voodoo going on, as otherwise Jay would be killing himself at some point..  (Yeah right, he "convinced" his duplicate to die.  Not likely, as the whole point of this is to save his life at any cost)

Looks like the black Flash will be based on The Rival, Jay Garrick's reverse flash from his era.

They said the main villain will be Savitar, another evil speedster from Wally's era.

Black Flash Zoom will also reappear.

Looks like they are taking this 4 show cross-over very seriously at the CW.  I didn't realize how much they had in common in regards to production.  There is a minor spoiler about a Flash/Supergirl crossover that takes advantage of one of the actors past roles. 


This should be good.

Now, a three-hour cohesive crossover is an undertaking like none we have seen on television before – at least in the superhero genre.

Good thing he added that last part because it's been done at least 3 or 4 times I can think of.

Distintigrating bullets without touching his clothes is more then switching it on/off, though.  If he can control what it affects, and not just when, he'd probably keep bulletproofing on all the time.

Is Wally Savitar?
Title: Re: CW's Flash
Post by: SCB on March 07, 2017, 11:39:53 PM
No. Why would you think that?
Title: Re: CW's Flash
Post by: DocSavage on March 08, 2017, 12:59:13 AM
I was asking the same thing.  :)

For a few reasons, though nothing solid:

First off, he seemed to know an awful lot about the team.  Like he used to be one of them.

It's also funny how he got into Wally's head like he did.  Assumed his mothers form.  Never did anything quite like that to Barry, so it's not a speed force thing.

Plus, how Savitar harped on how he created himself.  Not freed, but CREATED.. He specifically used that word when talking with Barry.

But even if not for any of that, the mere fact alone that Wally was held out as the best hope of stopping Savitar would make me suspicious that he might be him, simply because that"s the kind of twist this show is known for.  Wells, "Jay Garrick", so why not Wally?





Title: Re: CW's Flash
Post by: BobbyR on March 08, 2017, 03:31:39 PM
yeah a lot of what Dan said, and how Wally was the one that needed to go into the speed force.


So is it someone we know? I stopped reading comics when there was just one Flash LOL

Post by: dam skippy on March 08, 2017, 03:41:10 PM
When they first went to the future, I wondered where Wally was.  Then Jessie showed up and I wondered where she was as well.  This will be interesting to see how it plays out.I don't think he will be Wally.  I agree it would be clever but the prophecy looks like Wally is the one with a fate worse than death, which I thought was Flash all along.  I did like how the whole timeline is playing out no matter what they do.  Having Flash train Wally to gain speed to save Iris but ending up being be the one to replace him in the Speedforce was genius.  Jessie still has a part to play in all of this.

Not sure what happened.  Cliff notes version:


I don't think it's Wally.
I picked up early on that Wally wasn't there, what about Jessie?
If the Speed Force is living and breathing, why doesn't it kick Wally out?

Post by: SCB on March 08, 2017, 08:45:32 PM
Savitar is using Wally because he's weak.


Wally never earned his mantle. He was handed his powers and costume, by Savitar.


This will be his moment to prove himself as a hero, perhaps.


Unlike past seasons, I don't think it matters who is behind the mask of the evil speedster. They're not trying to make you think he's anyone, unlike with Reverse Flash and Zoom.

Nope, he's not known as anything by a mysterious villain.

But the way time travel works, that doesn't mean Savitar doesn't know them.  I have a feeling at some point in the future, Barry meets Savitar again..  Only for the first time from his perspective.

Don't let the door hit you on the way out, Jesse.  She didn't need to hit "not Harrison Wells", being a speedster who would just walk around him at super speed..
Title: Re: CW's Flash
Post by: dam skippy on March 23, 2017, 04:05:15 PM
I hated that this episode was a filler with all of the chaos of Iris' pending death but they put the ring on the finger wrinkle back in the timeline.  This should be interesting.


Super Girl is a good singer.   


It didn't have that Once More With Feeling feel but it was good for what it was.


It's a shame Jessie left, it would have been a little more interesting.

From the previews, that sounded like Barry speaking.  It looks like the theory of Savitar being a displaced Barry Allen time remnant is correct.  (Probably the one who disappeared in season 2.)

I think Ronnie is Savitar. It would certainly explain why Caitlin was so easily swayed. That's the love of her life.
Title: Re: CW's Flash
Post by: dam skippy on May 03, 2017, 04:37:23 PM
So Savitar looks like a scrawny Barry Allen /  Solomon Grundy.  I can't see how they can explain this in a way that gives the fans a pay-off.   So far 3 out 3 big baddies have comes from within the group.  It seems a little redundant.

I wonder how far in the future savitar is from. Is it 20 years into the future? 50? It looks like reverse flash was right in episode 1 of this season when he said this time you are the villain.

Is it "future" future, "evil bearded alternate timeline" future, or some time remenant from the future (I guess that would be the same thing as an alt timeline?  Isn't that what remenant's are?  Versions from a timeline that never happened/was changed?)

I guess that would be the best description of a remnant Docsavage. I was hoping it would be cecile under the mask because the entire viewing audience would have been like wtf? Or even barry's gf from season 2 that they wrote out the show who now I do not even remember her name.

They wrote her out in season 2 that she received a better job offer in another town.  She did have an ending scene where she called the flash for help a few towns over and went he got there it was a false alarm and she just wanted to see him one last time. I think her name was Patty. He told her that he was the flash.

The way they did do the savitar reveal thogh imo was pretty cool even though.
Title: Re: CW's Flash
Post by: SCB on May 04, 2017, 02:17:27 PM
Patty Spivot. I loved her. Wish they kept her for a full season regular before making Iris his main love interest.


I actually love the evil Barry twist. The season was pretty dull. Now this raises so many questions and no idea what they'll do next.


Best thing for me was Barry figuring it out on his own. Normally he can't think for himself. Team Flash has to baby him every step of the way.

The latest episode was one of my favorites of the season. Cisco is doing all he can to try and get caitlyn back to her normal self. I also like that it was explained how savitar came to be future barry (I think the writers did the best explanation it could possibly do imo) The only thing I wonder is what if barry does not try and use time remants to defeat savitar in their future fight. Then savitar should not exist right? There I go thinking with logic again perhaps I gave the writers too much credit or a more likely scenario is savitar is lying and he is the time remant that was used to defeat zoom. They would not bring that up without purpose and it would definitely help explain the face.

Prob more expensive to insert everyone back there since they prob did not have this idea yet on what they needed to stop savitar (as in the writers).

I doubt the show has the balls to let that stand for an entire season.

Flash was pretty good, I thought.,


I haven't watched many shows where I wonder how they undo what they just did. 


What finally happens between Cisco and Frost.  The Frost storyline seems a little cheesy, maybe they move on with it.


I liked how they answered the question about where Wally was.


If they could go to Earth 2, couldn't they have gotten Jessie to come back and help? 
Title: Re: CW's Flash
Post by: DocSavage on May 17, 2017, 07:47:29 PM
I like to imagine Snart was yucking it up with the Legends/Mick something like this:

"So, where did you go?"

"Barry needed me to break into Argus, the most secure facillity oj Earth, and steal some tech to save Iris from an evil speedster.  The facility dampens his speed."

Everyone at once:  "Why not just put Iris into the speed dampened fortress?"

Mick:  "Because Barry's an idiot".

Title: Re: CW's Flash
Post by: IMISSTORRIEWILSON on May 17, 2017, 11:12:15 PM
As for Jesse and Julian not being in the last episode I imagine it was a production budget issue. As for them not putting Iris inside that facility that is a good question lol. I guess Savitar would just disable the power grid allowing himself to go in there and break her out.

I figured it Flash got in, Savitar would get in.

Yeah, but Barry had Snart.  Savitar would need evil Legends mirrorverse Snart or something..

(Really though, they should be exploiting the "shared memory" way more then they have been.

Like, hide Iris and don't tell Barry where she is, but give them all these false leads that he THINKS are the real ones (He can't know he's being lied to, so Savitar doesn't know).

Then Savitar can go nuts breaking into an Argus or meta prison, only for the door to slam on the other side and he ending up trapped..

Meanehile, Iris was shrunken down with Atom tech and safely in Cisco's eyeglasses..)
