If it is Siren-X I cant even fully get into the character since she is an EXACT replica of E2 Siren. Hair, outfit, villainous.

Has anything interesting happened recently? Haven't watched the last 3-4 episodes because of how bad this series has been. The constant mood swings, followed by someone going to talk to said moody individual could not be more boring, emotionless and predictable.

The Barry and Iris relationship makes me want to be sick

Nothing crazy, except that Devoe took over Ralph's body, which I can only hope that means he'll die at the end of the season.

I really like Ralph. I had no idea he'd be a regular all season though.

Then probably forgotten and rarely mentioned next season like Draco Malfoy.

The humor was spot on despite Flash’s suit turning into a raft. 415 Flashtime was great but I even forgot about how that episode came to a resolve.

I’m gonna say it—the best thing about this season, is that gorgeous suit. That still doesn’t have a ring. Ugh.

Like some here, I’ve definitely had thoughts about dropping it on Tuesday nights but I’ll probably ride the rest of the season out, see how it goes. Like a lot of you, I thought they lost the frightening appeal to The Thinker by losing Sandilands and replacing him with D-level actors. Christ, WTH happened there? #endrant

P.S. Around halfway through the season, I was telling myself—this is better than Season 3. But now we’re almost at the end and I think it’s safe to say this is the worst season yet. Truly.
Nailed it. Season 1 was a light season that was really good. Season 2 was a dark season that was really good. Season 3 was a dark season that was really bad. Now season 4 is a light season that's gone really bad. A show having a light tone or a dark tone does not determine the outcome of how well a season is gonna go, it's about the writers and the execution of the plot. The Flash is suffering exactly what Arrow went through a couple years back. Both shows were solid its first 2 seasons.

Brain dead. Like has Barry not learned anything from the past? For example, that Invincible episode where he was overconfident and too complacent right before Zoom killed his father, or the fact that he barely escaped Savitar due to H.R. Wells making a sacrifice?

Man, I just remembered about the (grand)daughter of Barry and Iris. We've seen her twice, I think. She just gonna show up in the season finale or something?

I think he's part of the unspoken formula to get Arrowverse viewers invested in supporting characters by building them up on them on the most popular show, then using them on the other shows. I could easily see Ralph on LoT, or maybe even Supergirl.

No to having him on Supergirl. Why would he fit in there? Why ruin that show too with him?

If they want to use him, then put him on LoT or keep him on Flash.

I am not buying that Ralph is gone. His character is not a minor character in the comics. So as long as his body is still being used by Devoe...I say Ralph will be back.

I (think) episode 20 is supposed to be about her. I read something about it on Instagram earlier.

One would think (or hope?) that the consciousness of all De Voe's victim somehow remain alive within his subconscious; he has their memories at least? Assuming Team Flash kept the bodies on ice, it's possible they could all make a return, although with De Voe now in possession of Ralph's body, it certainly seems like he'd be the most likely candidate to be saved.

I'm someone who thought the show's decline actually started with the second season. I thought the first season was not only damn fine television, but also one better live-action superhero stories out there (including other shows AND movies).

And yet even at the start of the second season everything just felt so... unengaging. Characters stopped trying. The plot felt less focused and the different subplots seemed to go their own way each, instead of mixing and converging almost constantly like in the first season. The Earth-2 concept was used very unimaginatively, both in story and design (I mean, Earth-2 is literally Earth-1 with After Effects holograms and a bad color filter). The "twist" with Zoom was a more convoluted, plae imitation of Thawne... It was just a mess all around, if you ask me.

And I was thinking, as much as I enjoy Legends of Tomorrow nowadays, it's really vampirized a lot of this show. Losing the Rogues was the first big mistake, imo, the first season, you had the Reverse Flash as the main opponent, but Snart seemed to, slowly but unstoppably, be becoming one of the Flash's more unpredictable villains. And if they wanted to go the redeeming route with him, imagine how much better it'd had been to keep that story for The Flash - For example, having him team up with the Flash to stop Zoom and dying in the process instead of ********ting a time wraith plot device. Same for the third season. One problem with Savitar's reveal is that he was literally the only villain (and no, Alchemy doesn't count because he was doing exactly what Savitar wanted and was a brainwashed character, so there's no conflict between them and all the conflict between Team Flash and Alchemy is a conflict they're having with Savitar) so he got old fast. Really fast. Imagine having a Post-Flashpoint Reverse Flash running around as a secondary villain - They could have given him the same storyline he had on LoT (fleeing from the Black Racer and trying to prevent his own erasure, though obviously without the Spear of Destiny or that much time travel) or they could have told us Flashpoint spared him from being erased (they ******** time travel anyway) and, as a living paradox, he's free to haunt Barry as much as he wants.

Dunno, just some thoughts...

He would fit the tone perfectly, and he would be more interesting than Bor-El.

Well what happened in season 1 isn't necessarily what is the same reality now. Barry created Flashpoint. Ralph Dibney could easily be alive now after Barry changed the timeline.

A quick mention would have been nice. If you use that kind of fanservice to set up future stories, it would be nice to acknowledge them later, otherwise why bother? Is it too much trouble to just keep a list of names in the writers' room?

Are they going to force some Cecile story soon? I didn't watch Run Iris but she hasn't appeared in about 3 episodes.

Don't care for the Granddaughter or future relative girl. Think she will be annoying and we will get a lot of Iris trying to be a mother moments. More BArry training stuff.

She's managed to come back in time, and has managed to avoid detection. I don't think she'll need much training - if any.
