I did not like this episode AT ALL. It felt like filler to me, and once they did the "two dads" spiel, I mentally checked out and then dozed off. Please, no more Glee reunions. I really enjoy musicals, but this was crap.

This last episode was DC/CW trying to give the fans what they wanted, which is the Glee reunion. Problem was, it wasn't really a musical and the original songs were lame and I guess there wasn't any room in the budget to cover songs. So, the episode just fell flat.

However, I enjoyed the cross over elements.

And this show was refreshing after that slogfest of 13 hours of Iron Fist.

Yo.

all I'll say is this: Im glad I d/l'd this eps, rather than watching it live, since it allowed me to FF thru all of that stuff. ended up finishing the 44+min show in 15........and even then, it was a waste in term of the main Flash -narrative as far as I was concerned. :/

Well, at least this episode did pretty much erase the recent stupidity in Iris and Barry's relationship. Personally I think we would have been better off if they just hadn't acted stupidly about their relationship in the first place. Then we wouldn't have needed this literal Deus ex Machina episode to fix it. Part of me wants them to come back to that Music Meister character to explain what the heck he's all about, because otherwise his presence and actions seem REALLY arbitrary, but part of me would rather just move on and gloss over this bit in my mind, since it was only necessary because of stupidness in previous episodes that I could have done without in the first place.

The next Flash episode is giving us what we want people! No telling if this is *our* Flash, or the Flash from the year 2025...

Given the last two episodes, I think it's very clear where the story is going and what it's drawn from.

I've seen some pretty wild theories on the real ID of Savitar.... I'm gonna go ahead and say he's a time remnant trying to take out the *real* Barry after 'dying' and going to the Speed Force. I don't think he's from our Barry's future, but Savitar could've been a time remnant from ANY adventure where BA used them.

Did you watch this weeks episode, that was all already explained,
It's a predestination paradox. Savitar is a time remnant of Barry from the future that Barry created to defeat Savitar, Savitar killed all the remnants excepting one who he let live in order to become Savitar .. it was a endless loop thing ..

I knew I was on the right track. I still think it's a dumb move. The obvious choice would've been HR's friend from Earth 19...

Yo.

watched the latest eps last nite, and I really didn't care for it too much HOWEVER it left me with 2 thoughts: 1) listening to S-Barry berate Prime-Barry over his time-shenanigans felt like winning a free bucket of popcorn *FOR LIFE!* at the movies, since we basically got to see him call HIMSELF a shitty hero, and 2) who here wouldn't mind if [insert random character] tricked Barry into taking Jays place in that Time Prison in the SF, and Jay became the main antagonist for......say, the 1st half of next season?!??

Yeah, 1) Barry Allen is CW's Tony Stark, always trying to clean up his own mess; 2) no more speedsters for an antagonist.

However, Barry taking the place of Jay in the speed force would prevent Savitar from killing Iris. I mean, if he could still erase his memory, I'm guessing if Barry took Pay's place right now, Savitar would not exist.

On a side note, YAY! for cut-throat bitch! ("House" TV show reference)

Iris wasn't killed, that wasn't Iris that Savitar had .. It was H.R. using the disguise tech .. one episode left .. lets see if I'm right ..

Yo.

Q: exactly from where did Barry pull that big-ass gun??

side note: if they kill off HR, Ima be pissed off since that'll mean we'll have to get *yet another* Wells-doppelganger to flesh out the Speedy Gang.....and I rather liked him (not as much as E2-Wells, but enuff to accept.)
:/

I'll be shocked if it wasn't HG that did a switcheroo. He needs to go away anyway, since the formula of the show is we get a new version of Wells every season. So he has to either die or go away, and in season 4 we will get yet another version of Wells, probably after a few episodes of E2's Wells making appearances to set it up.

The other bit of formula they sound like they are straying from is having the Big Bad of the season be a speedster. I'm sure they will still do a big reveal where we are all shocked at who it is, but it sounds like next tie it won't be a speedster.

That would be an interesting twist, but I'm not clear on how that could work. H.R. revealed Iris' location to Savitar accidentally (though that was particularly stupid, since he shouldn't have been revealing it even to the REAL Barry, since Savitar knows what Barry knows), and I'm not clear how he could then have beaten Savitar there and taken her place before Savitar snatched her, and even less clear on how he could have replaced her AFTER Savitar snatched her.

Maybe he hides Iris, and nobody knows? They could keep it a twist for next season, that only the audience knows.

Some speculate the switch happens when Barry tries to shoot Savitar with the Speed Force bazooka; that Wally heals and while Savitar is running around to avoid the blast from the Speed Force bazooka, Wally makes the switch.

I didn't even think of HG getting help from Wally.

There was some REALLY shitty writing going on in this episode. Damn! I'm still surprised episode to episode how bad the writing can be, how full of plotholes, and it still be as fun and watchable as it is.

Yo.

if Im to be honest, I only smiled @ 2 points in this finale: when Jay showed up (cuz Jay is *always* INSTA-WIN!!), and when Barry goes off to the sf-prison as punishment (becuz of dumbassery).

the rest of it was just slightly better "meh" than last seasons finale.
:/

I was disappointed with the season finale. I thought it ended on a real bummer. But like Tazer said in not so many words, Barry made his bed and now it's time for him to lie in it.

I'm guessing this is not the "Crisis" that Barry disappears that was the headline of that newspaper article.

Anyone remember what happened to Gideon?
