Quote:1. Until Ray starts shrinking down in size, his suit is a poor Iron Man imitation, flight, energy beams, quasi durability, sensors....yeah its Iron Man. I know some of you hate the comparison, but he is an Iron Man copy right now. However he has one of the tiny bees to study and plans to adapt its power supply to the ATOM armor
See my post below as to the man reasons why Ray's suit is nothing like Iron Man. The two have too many differences between each other. Please stop looking at the surface and examine the details and you'll see thre Atom is NOT a rip off of Iron Man. Never was, never will be. And if you all continue to ignore the details and not examine the huge amount of differences between the Atom and Iron Man then we're going to have to agree to disagree because we can all argue this point until we are all blue in the face. So, let's all drop it and agree to disagree. Moving on...
Quote:2. Cisco having temporal flashbacks to the day Barry erased, interesting. Given that Cisco was dead and then not dead, this would explain it as the time stream may really have hiccuped over that.
This made no sense to me. How could he have temporal flashbacks when it "never happened" for him? Thus, "no memories" of the event were formed since it never happened. Time was changed, he shouldn't be experiencing this. There's a time where suspending disbelief for a Super-Hero show is called for (such as a man having Superspeed) but this was going way too far. It makes zero sense and it's a sign of some very sloppy writing. Especially since the writers didn't even give us an explanation of how this is possible (which I waited for and never got).
Quote:3. Caitlyn and Cisco don't really know that Barry time jumped.
They probably will later down the road.
Quote:4. Iris wants the truth and Eddie is getting mad, this bodes ill for Barry. and NO EDDIE IS NOT BECOMING REVERSE FLASH, HE IS THE ANCESTOR OF REVERSE FLASH, if Eddie dies so does Wells/Thawne.
And I'm also crossing my fingers that Eddie does NOT become "Hunter Zolomon" with his Time powers that makes him "seem" like he has Superspeed but doesn't (And Hunter Zolomon became the Reverse Flash for Wally West). I'm really, really, hoping the writers don't take Eddie in this direction.
Quote:5. Nice to see Tina McGee again
Indeed. Love seeing her.
Quote:6. it is unknown if she has another tachyon device, I suspect she does and Reverse Flash may well start searching Mercury Labs for it. This could lead to some time travel
As was promised, but then broken. We were supposed to have some time travel episodes in the winter, but only got one and it was spring, really late winter, when that episode aired and haven't gotten another one since.
Quote:7. Barry tells Felicity about Wells, dangerous move given that she sometimes has a slip of the tongue and blurts things out
Not really. She's hardly ever seen in Central City, so it's safe with her.
Quote:8. Barry is slowly prepping to face Wells/Reverse Flash.
Funny. I didn't see him training in this episode for that purpose.
Quote:9. As Sethno pointed out to me, In Cisco's Flashbacks/deja vu, he does remember that Wells revealed himself as Reverse Flash before he was killed by RF
Which doesn't make sense because it never happened.
Quote:10. Cisco and Ray both name the villain at the same time.
That was cool.
Quote:Things are building up nicely, looking forward to the season finale.
As am I.
Okay we need to agree to disagree about ATOM/Iron Man
As to Cisco and his time flashbacks, time travel in itself is a fictional concept that may one day far in teh future become reality, so the rules of Time Travel are always mercurial to the writers of sci-fi.
Cisco is experiencing to me what appears to be a serious case of deja vu. His death was a rather significant event that Barry inadvertently negated with his time warp. However he DID die and then was temporally revived when that day was negated, Cisco may be experiencing some temporal reversion that Barry had experienced. The next episode may help fill in the blanks as it were.
Tina McGee needs to meet Henry Allen
In this episode, Barry's prepping to face off against Wells involved telling Caitlyn and Cisco that Wells IS the Reverse Flash. Barry needs allies if he plans to face against RF. That containment field they used before should work with a few adjustments and actually trapping RF and not an afterimage.
Also I believe the time warp concept was introduced in winter and they have been expanding it ever since. I think they decided to make it the season finale and focus on things like building the Rogues, slowly establish RF as a major threat, develop Barry's powers, etc.
Also we need Hamil back as the Trickster
