Quote:I know I should feel happy that my theory was pretty close to spot-on. But the episode was very disappointing. I can't put my finger on it but it just didn't live up to my expectations. Admittedly, I don't know what I was expecting. And this from a guy who loved the musical.
Quote:Overall good season though. Over the past three seasons, we saw Barry face the Reverse Flash, Zoom and then finally himself. Now he's finally Top Dog Speedster. Wouldn't surprise me if next Season he emerges as Master of the speed force.
I thought the finale was almost pure crap. And I've probably been lenient on the quality of this season since I disliked last season much more.
This is one of those annoying time travel mechanics related episodes that I just hate. The whole episode revolves around Savitar waiting for a time paradox to come and erase him...f*cking horrible. It should have been instantaneous so I could have been spared the rest of the episode.
That said...I didn't mind the whole Barry sacrificing himself to the speed force. It's what he deserved for Flashpoint and killing Sara Diggle.
I'd hate to have to explain this episode to a newcomer. You've got 2 Harrisons...neither from Earth 1. Harrison's from earth 2. HR and Gypsy are from Earth 19. Jay looks like Barry's dad but has a different name and is from earth 3. Savitar's Barry from the future (I think).
