So each of them thinks the other one is still evil, resulting in a fight.

@  Nevermore : (12 August 2017 - 03:51 PM)

A and B know each other from their times as villains, but neither is aware of the other's heel-face-turn.

@  Nevermore : (12 August 2017 - 03:51 PM)

Eventually, a new threat leads both villains A and B into the enemy lair.

@  Nevermore : (12 August 2017 - 03:50 PM)

Elswehere, former villain B has also given up his plans for world domination and decided to become a part-time ally of the good guys.

@  Nevermore : (12 August 2017 - 03:49 PM)

Former villain A has abandoned his evil ways and decided to become an anti-hero of sorts.

Hoo boy, after the stunt Iris and Wally pulled in this episode, keeping Joe in the dark about Iris's future death is really gonna come back to bite everyone in the butt worse than ever.

 

Also, brief visit to Supergirl Earth in this one!

That Earth-hopping fight was unexpected and the kind of stuff I love this show for. Also, I had qualms about Julian joining the team, but he was on fire this episode.

Waiting for one last shoe to drop regarding H.R., as they seemed to be implying he did something much worse than multiversal travel at some point.

Is there any particular reason why they can't keep vibing forward to Iris's death to see if their efforts are having an effect on anything?

Just caught up with the latest ep, pretty good, thou the scene with Isis breaking into the Arms dealer hide out kind of got me thinking, padlocks, are they always undo when someone strikes them with a piece of metal in the fictional worlds?

 

HR, I seriously doult he has stopped broadcasting his novel into the multiverse.

 

The vive brawl was ok I guess, it was a little amusing to see them crashland on the coffee table in Supergirl world.

Some serious stupid this ep. How about, instead of trying to teach Wally phasing by having him run full speed into a wall, maybe you could teach him the hand phase first?


Well, Art is Art, isn't it? Still, on the other hand, water is water. And east is east and west is west and if you take cranberries and stew them like applesauce they taste much more like prunes than rhubarb does. Now you tell me what you know.

Who knows, maybe they'll kill off Earth 1 Caitlin completely and have her return next season as a Caitlin from say the Earth Supergirl is from, they did that with Dr Wells, granted that was also the Reverse Flash attempting to get his powers back, thou I didn't really like how they killed him off in season 1 finally, or at least the aftermath because what happened should of really shook up the status quo, Zoom's demise was much better, thou I think the door is open for him to return one day in some form or another. The current central villian, I'm not majorly keen on currently because its all CGI and that is rather boring for a major villian to be unless they have some real talent and thought in their creation, thou that merely my view.

I was thinking that kind of thing, too. Certainly she's entitled to move on, but in the context of a fictional show like this, it seems like they're turning her into "brainy potential love interest (with Killer superpowers)." Just doesn't sit well somehow.

I don't feel like Caitlin is the potential love interest, it's more that they've never really known what to do with her and so she's the one getting lots of romance plots so the writers can claim they are actually doing stuff with her character.

 

Some serious stupid this ep. How about, instead of trying to teach Wally phasing by having him run full speed into a wall, maybe you could teach him the hand phase first?

 

I was thinking since they have the whole course upstairs for him to run through why not set up some thin paper walls or something if they really wanted to go for the full-on treatment? Not everything has to hurt, Barry.

 

I feel like they were trying to take that plot with Joe's girlfriend's daughter somewhere (not her obsession with Kid Flash, but her rubbing the West clan the wrong way in general) but then they forgot.

I thought the idea was that the failure of each relationship (not just romance, because it starts with her mother) breaks her heart more and more, driving her closer to becoming Killer Frost.

That's not a half-bad idea actually, but I don't get that vibe from how they've played it. Speaking specificallty about the romantic relationsghips, each time it seems like a clean reset with only a few token mentions of the previous relationship. It was particularly notable with Jay, where after pining over Robbie for a bit [her main character feature for what felt like quite a while] it was soon like nothing had happened.

 

I'm in the "doesn't sit well with me" camp, because it seems like such a waste of a good character and performer. I mean, CISCO moved on from being the one-note Nerd Reference Villain Renamer Guy (and while his recent angles have leaned on angst it's pretty justificable angst!), which I'm pleasantly surprised by. He seemed like the easier one to fall into a rut writing.

It's kind of her thing though isn't it?

 

In the comics she's always been a scorned lover and that's why she's evil.

In the comics, she's the inspiration for the new Justice League Dark team, so they seem to have decided that they need to give Killer Frost a shot at redemption in the comics so as to make her fate less preordained in the show.
