    Go back to approx 6:40 as Jesse leaves her father, Wells 2 calls her Jesse Quick.

*Coughs* Nickname

    Perhaps she is adopted by Wells and doesn't know it?

If this is indeed "Jesse Quick", then I really hope this is the case as Jesse is the daughter of Johnny Quick not Harrison Wells.

    As to Barry needing to restore Jay's powers and team with him, I have no major problem with that. Barry is faster then Jay but Jay can still give an assist in the fight. Yes Barry is the Flash but he is also a bit of a rookie still.

A fair point. Still, Barry is the hero of the show and he should triumph as one.

    As to Reverse Flash in Season 1, the only logical way to stop him since Barry wasn't up to the task was for something to happen to Eddie and the only thing would have been death. They could have tried to shoot RF from behind in that last fight but there is no guarantee that RF wouldn't have dodge or blocked the attacks.

Barry wasn't up to the task because the writers didn't have Barry fast enough or ready enough to face the Reverse Flash when he SHOULD have been by that point. He spent an entire season working on getting faster only to fail in the end. All that work with zero payoff. So, what was the point? So Wells/Thawne could go home? Barry losing to Reverse Flash was a cop out.

    as to ZOOM not being human any more, strictly speaking all metas are not "human" anymore but are meta-humans. Everything's relative.

I suppose so. But Zoom is more monstrous than the others. ;\)

    Zoom may not be a split from Wells and may be someone else completely, but I am leaving the Wells divided by the particle explosion theory open for now.

Fair enough. But I'm telling you right now, Eddie being Zoom is more of a possibility than Earth-2 Dr. Wells. ;\)

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?
