    It didn't bother me that he didn't look like Abra Kadabra in the comics. And I didn't mind that they just said it was future tech. What bothered me was the sameness of him. Eobard, Savitar, Zoom, and now Abra are all from the future and all have fought Barry in the future. Talk about beating a dead horse!

Well to be fair Zoom/Fake Jay was from an alternate present \:\)

    The other thing that struck me is how bad the whole team is at being heroes. Team Arrow would have tortured Abra and gotten the information they needed. Team Flash whined about it being wrong to torture a guy and ended up with nothing.

    They should have called Oliver if they couldn't stomach it.

Well on Arrow this week Oliver was in that weird I want to quit being a hero and would rather pay the Russian mob to assassinate my enemy headspace.

    OR they should have gotten a lawyer from Earth 19 that could have made a deal with Abra.

    The weird thing with this episode was how HR was gone for most of it and then we get a weird explanation that he was with a chick. Either it was bad writing or we'll hear about it again when it turns out HR is Savitar. \:\)

I'd like to think HR has a big secret that isn't about him being evil. There's something off about him, he's not being truthful...but I don't feel like he's malevolent at all. I'm going to be disappointed if his secret is that he's evil. I'm hoping they surprise us with some novel twist where he isn't evil yet it's still big enough reason for the secrecy.

    I loved Reverend's comment that Julian is one of the gang now that he did something everyone told him not to and took off Caitlin's bracelet.

    Something tells me Killer Frost is here for good. I think the writers have never known what to do with her. Turning her into a villain has been the most character development she's ever had.

I love Caitlin but they don't know how to write for her. If this gives the actress stuff to do on a long term basis (and keeps her from ditching the show for a better gig) then leave her as a villain.
