      At the escapees hide out they chat, she states she had blackouts until she learned to control her power. She states her power is limited by line of sight. Basically her teleport power is the same as Nightcrawler of the X-men, minus the brimstone stench.

    Yet there are points during the episode where she teleports to places she couldn't possibly have been able to see from where she was. (Basically every long distance teleport when she didn't use the telescope - and yes, there were a couple of those.) The inconsistency bugged me.

How far can see teleport though? If she is on the roof of the empire State building looking down can she teleport to the street?

I like the way Nightcrawler's powers work better that he has to be familiar with the place he is going.

Line of sight doesn't really make any sense because you can see for 25 miles on the ground, more from heights. As well as being able to look up and see clouds the moon and stars. I doubt she could teleport onto passing helicopter but she should be able to according to their rules.


      Outside the lab, Cisco and Piper talk, Piper shows him a bomb shadow on a wall. Piper tells him that shadow was once Martin Stein. Cisco doesn't believe him, they fight and Cisco uses hypersonics to give Piper a debilitating ear ache and demands information on Ronnie. Cisco switches it off and warns him to not resist ever again. Piper tells him to remove the cuffs as where they will go will be conspicuous.

It was bad enough he let him out. then he doesn't throw him back immediately when he tries to run. Idiocy!


      Barry then chats with Caitlin about them and about Ronnie and she decides it is time to move on with her life and find someone else. Things then get a bit awkward for a moment with them then they say goodbye. Possible romance in the air.

    We can only hope. Caitlin is the right girl for Barry, in my opinion.

Mine too.


      Flash then gives Iris a story about Clay Parker and the breakout at Iron Heights. Iris then smiles as she got a pic of Flash on her phone.

    So now Barry is doing her job for her. He should do her laundry too.

I told you this was going to happen.


      Barry then speaks to his father about his dad. They joke and laugh then he shows Barry the latest paper and how it has the pic Iris took of the Flash on it. he then comments how Julius roughed him up and then the Flash took care of Julius. He then tells Barry that if he were the Flash, he would tell him he is a hero who has saved a lot of lives and that his father is proud of him.

    Barry's dad knows he's the Flash. I like this development.

I wasn't aware this was news. I thought for sure his dad knew already.


      Episode ends with two workers checking power lines underground, they hear a noise and then see the word GRODD written on the walls! Grodd then attacks them and the episode ends.

    I got all excited when I saw "Grodd" written on the walls!

Me too! I'm hoping he is going to be an awesome villain!


When Barry's dad first saw him as the Flash, Barry vibrated his face so that it was a blur.

Barry's dad did the math though:

1. he gets Barry some info on the criminal
2. he gets roughed up and hospitalized.
3. he tells Barry what happened and who did it.
4. The Flash then deals with the criminal and gets him busted for attempted escape

Now how could The Flash have known? \:\)
