Quote:Mayor Bellows is running for reelection and references how he was once a cop. This is an easter egg as Bellows was indeed a cop in the 90's series
Another easter egg was the name, "Plastic Man.". That name belongs to Eel O'Brien.
Quote:We also get his classic line ""I smell a mystery"
With a nose wiggle to boot.
Quote:I think his client's name was Mrs. Broome....
She needs to do some sweeping...
Quote:Dibney learns that sneezing is not a good thing with his powers, Joe finally gets sick at the site of someone having powers.
I laughed at this part.
Quote:Cisco gets a humorous pep talk from Wells2.
I'm glad Tom is playing Wells-2 again and not a different Wells.
Quote:Mayor's goons arrive to kill Joe and Barry, we get a Quicksilver/X-men first class style method of beating them.
Ha ha, I thought of that movie too.
Quote:Dibney confronts the Mayor and decides to not blackmail him. Mayor attempts to shoot him but it doesn't work.
Quote:Flash asks Dibney to grab the helicoptor, he refuses so of COURSE BARRY UNMASKS.
I was like, "Don't unmask, don't do it." But he did it. He might as well unmasked to the whole city now. What's the point?
Quote:Dibney grabs the helicoptor and Flash runs up his arm to save Joe from the Mayor. That is the moment Joe mentions that he is going to be a father.
I don't know about you but when that happened, it went to a commercial. Perfect moment!
Quote:Celebration at STAR over the news that Joe is going to be a dad again.
I bet Joe and his new love lose the baby.
Quote:Dibney reveals that a man who only spoke over the phone asked him to investigate the mayor. The man's name is Devoe (spell check on that?). Barry then remembers hearing that name from last season and how Savitar mentioned they built a cerebral inhibitor to stop Devoe.
You got the spelling right, but the normal spelling of the name is with a capital V (DeVoe). So, your good.
Quote:Funny episode, still not feeling the magic.
Agreed. I was tempted to review this one.
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. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
