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.

Okay.

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?


Savitar didn't replace anybody because the Speedforce-prison was built for him in the first place. He was prisoner zero so to speak.

Of course that was the only thing that made sense. Everything else didn't. Why escape in the past when he was imprisoned in the future? And shouldn't he had killed Iris by then. He was imprisoned four years after killing Iris leading to the battles with the time reminants, one of them being the future him. So this Savitar had already killed Iris and tried to do it again? Doesn't compute!!

And why being imprisoned in the past? He should have been free to operate there and work out a plan to free future self at the end of the time-loop, like luring Wally in the Speed-Force then. And why spill the beans to Barry before he had killed Iris?

If this was a perfect time-loopstory, it could have been fun, but it wasn't.
The story was a complete mess and very illogical.
