> This is shaping up to be a much better series finale than "Finish Line" (#227-230) was.

Agreed. Maybe even 99% better. Pretending that online negative feedback on the superficial title pages prompted changing this issue to combine a splash page of poignant real story into the title page theme. This title page was truly enjoyable.
> This issue focused heavily on the Wally/Linda relationship, which was the core of the book during much of Mark Waid's initial run.

Not sure about longtime readers, but this was a nice recap for me having missed much of that run. Not to mention the obvious 2 (Teen) Titans bonds adhered too.
> I think it's clear how they're going to resolve Wally's speed problem, though it's not so clear how they're going to resolve Linda's situation.

How? Next issue seemingly has him giving up his boots. The disappointing thing about Linda is an unavoidable fact in comic book empires like DC and Marvel. The iconic heroes should have sooooo many avenues to explore and unique options deservedly available for them and there families. Just like when Ollie Queen's boy was in that coma, it seemed liked they were giving up way to fast on him. Very cool 'final' page and choice, though!
> Fun moment: Lian Harper hanging out with Iris & Jai.

And if the BradyWest kids werent in uniform this issue that wouldve been even much more fun. ;\-\)
> More thoughts in my full review at Speed Force.

-Roy was a friend in deed and not a friend in need (or was that said right the first time)
-Batman is a JLA hero here not a Gotham Dark Knight in 'this world' he shouldnt think he scares kids (well that chest symbol interpretation didnt help ;\-\) )
-Waller seems to be spreading herself too thin with a hand in everything (in spite of too numerous times crossing heroes' paths)
-Mid-Nite is becoming a new pet peeve being the go to doctor (whats the appeal of a masked blind doctor)
-Zatanna is conveniently not present (definitely deserved a consult)
