- YES, Iris is alive!! YAY!

But HR is dead… so that’s kind of sad . Looks like Harry is coming back for good.

- The by-line is back to Iris West-Allen, as it should be!

- So Julian was hanging out with Caitlin’s mom last episode to work on a cure? Okay, I’ll accept that.

- Loved Cisco sassing Savi-bar.

- Did Savi-bar actually remember he loved Iris, or was that just BS?

- So apparently HR kept Wells’ face when dealing with Tracy? And she didn’t wonder why he looked like a murderer?

- Looks like they name-dropped Devoe/The Thinker again. Second time this season. He must be the Season 4 villain.

- Did STAR labs blow up?! Can it STAY blown up so we can actually get the characters out of there?

- Gypsy and Cisco are connected!

- Confirmed: Black Flash WAS Zoom (I figured as much).

- Welcome back, Jay!

- Caitlin turned good again because he couldn’t bear to watch Savi-bar kill Cisco! BFF goals.

- GO IRIS! SAVE YOUR MAN!!

- Please tell me Barry slipped Iris’s ring off her finger before he disappeared into the speedforce. I need the story of his grandpa to repeat itself, and an “As long as I remember Iris” moment in Season 4.

Other things I need in S4: Barry watching over his friends and family from the speedforce and Iris sensing it; and Barry coming out of the speedforce because he’s somehow ‘pulled’ to Iris like a *ahem* lightning rod, despite the speedforce’s intentions (unless that IS the speedforce’s intentions…?).

Never doubted Iris Being alive. I'm a little sad HR died especially since he blamed himself.

So I'm not sure exactly f Caitlin is good. They sort of left that ambiguous with that ending. She's still conflicted and confused.


So Barry is in the speed force. Hmmm how will he get out next season? Also a little sad because so many people predicted this ending.

I'm not really a huge fan of this season but if nothing else I think it let Grant shine. He really got to show his acting chops with his dual characters.

I think so. I thought I saw it when they were saying goodbye.

There was a moment there where she reached out to him and he slipped his fingers over hers as he was heading into the speedforce. I'm thinking he took it then. I wasn't imagining that moment, was I?

Right? We all know Barry will be back within 3 eisodes, but still.

Never liked the whole Savi killing Iris thought but the rest of it was great. Loved Caltlin letting her friendship with Sisco got back to her senses and saved him.

Loved the fight scene.

But by the time that he comes back, will Iris have "moves on?" Like maybe there is some sort of time jump? Like for us, he is back within an episode or two but for them, it's a lot longer? I mean, I hope not, but I got nervous when he told her to get on with her life. He is her life!

I don't recall that moment lol. Another excuse for me to re-watch later.

Enjoying everyone's comments!

Poor HR! what a hero! This is the second time TC has “died “ on this show, its gonna become a running joke LOL But at least we have HW back, love him and love TC’s portrayals!!!

I kind of like that KF is figuring things out. She’s not a villain, but she’s not quite “just Kaitlyn” anymore either, should be interesting.

Was not expecting Cisco to get rescued the way he was, that was fun and cool.

Boy that cliffhanger was hard to take, but we all know Barry will be back so it’s the non angsty kind of cliffhanger that I like. Maybe he’ll be happy in the Speedforce for awhile, its not mad at him, but its giving him a time out LOL. It’ll soon release him, he can get whiny after awhile. And it seems like it has a rule something like “if one goes out, one must be in” so they’ll find a speed villain to put in there or something

I knew that Iris was alive...just didn't know how they were gonna pull it off. And it was taken care of w/in the first few minutes of the ep. Didn't see that coming, but it was most appreciated.

HR wound up being the hero...don't know how I feel about that, but he did save Iris' life. My gripe is, why couldn't they have Barry be the one to ultimately save her? Isn't she the love of his life?

SavBarry was actually jealous of the RealBarry?! OK, that didn't make any sense, b/c after all he IS a time remnant. All of his "memories" were false, so why would he think that Iris would want to be w/him?! Sorry, had to get that off of my chest. I really liked the episode, but that one bit really bothered me. Anywho...

Cisco pulled a one-two on SavBarry...glad someone was thinking. And I hope that Cynthia returns as often as possible next season. She & Cisco are just TOO CUTE together.

Don't know exactly what KF or Caitlyn, or whatever her name is supposed to be, but at this point I can't see her being a regular character.

Iris saved the day!! All along she was the hero(ine). It's true that there is no Flash w/out Iris West.

The ending...why won't they let my babies be happy? Iris was all ready to be Iris West-Allen, & then the Speedforce comes along & changes all of that (for now, anyway).
Hopefully next season, they'll actually show Iris being the anchor & lightning rod that she is, by pulling Barry out of the Speedforce by herself.
