    In the latest episode Barry picks the fragments of an exploding grenade out of the air. Which is impossible.

    Changing their trajectory would be fine, but he doesn't do that. He just stops them. Now, when Barry slows to normal speed every one of those fragments are still going to have the same kinetic energy they had when he plucked them out of the air. They'd rip through his hands and body like bullets. But they didn't.

I don't know if Barry had this power but I seem to remember in the comics Wally had the ability to speed up or slow down things with his speed field. Of course if he had that power I can't see how he would ever be challenged as a super hero ever again.

    So what's happened to all that kinetic energy? Did Barry somehow absorb it?

    Maybe that's his new power?
