This post contains SPOILERS for the latest episode of the Flash.

1. Well, I called it. I knew that the Trial of Barry Allen would "not" revolve around him killing the Reverse Flash. I also knew the showrunners would butcher the storyline "because" they didn't use the Reverse Flash. They had to create their own version of this story and thus, ruin it.

2. Well, I won one and I lost one. I predicted that DeVoe wanted Barry's body, but in this episode it is revealed that wasn't DeVoe's plan. Nuts...

Anyways, no review here. Just wanted to give some brief thoughts. What did you think of the episode?


Comics aside, the episode was good but bad at the same time, and Devoe is still a supercilious prick, who bores me to tears using nebulous dialogue to try and prove his spurious preeminence. I freaking HATE Devoe. But, lets be fair, if Devoe is bad, his wife is the real evil genius there. Flipping heck! She allowed him to get struck on purpose with the particle accelerator. Then she has gone along on this crusade and built all his stuff. She is an absolutely repugnant excuse for a human being. So that was one thing the episode did great, made me hate Mrs Dr Professor Devoe more than I already do.

Iris is "Team leader" why and how did she suddenly get in charge? I thought it was "Team Flash." Surely Barry is the leader? And only she can make the tough calls? Stop me if I am wrong, but, aside from telling Team Iris to do things they were already doing or going to do, what actual purpose does Iris serve beyond being a simple love interest for Barry? She used to be a journalist, what happened with that? Iris bugs me. Its not Candice's fault I think she does as good a job as any could with what the writers give her to do.

Ralph is seemingly invulnerable, and could have EASILY caught Miss fake British accent aka Amunet with ease. All he'd have to do is wrap her up nice and tight, just like he did that dinosaur skeleton a few episodes prior. Yet they cut and run!? I thought Ralph was all about catching the bad guy? Doesn't make sense. And they've just allowed a deadly metahuman to escape when, Cisco and Ralph could have probably taken her.

I have to say while I found the episode intense, I seemed to enjoy and hate it at the same time.
