Okay. When did this "someone's gotta be a prisoner of the speed force" thing start? It was when Savitar escaped. Wally and then Jay had to take his place.
So, who did Savitar replace?
This makes no sense. WHEN did the requirement that someone be trapped in there start?
The writers really didn't think this one out. (Not the first time this has happened. Thawne evaporates in the season one finale because he no longer has any ancestry, and yet Barry's mother stays dead? HUH?)
Can anyone here pull an explanation on WHY Barry (or ANY speedster) has to be a prisoner of the Speed Force out of...uh...anything?
It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong.
