After recent events, Barry takes a closer look at his life with Iris. Eva makes a bold move.
I'm glad Barry realized it wasn't actually Iris a while ago
Yeah, it was way too obvious.
The lengths this episode went to drag out the Mirror Iris stuff. Admittedly, at first I thought that Nash, Barry, and Cecile were pulling a fast one, only to find out that the Mirrors were a step ahead of them. Still, Barry and Mirror Iris fighting just felt dragged out. I get that Barry is losing his speed and he's fighting someone that looks like Iris, but come on. He hasn't lost his speed altogether!
To be fair, Iris did turn into the Terminator...
I don't particularly care about this story.
Just when I thought that they could not do worse than Sherloque Wells, Nash Wells comes along.
Is Cisco going to wonder where Kamilla is now that her mirror version is dead? How come he didn't even notice she wasn't her?
Mirror Iris could've become another Savitar type villain.
I got the impression that Kamila and Singh were effective as duplicates because they hadn't developed their own identities, and so as infiltrators they displayed no odd behaviour to give them away. Fake Iris, for whatever reason — maybe just from being online long enough, like Voyager's holographic doctor — started to become her own person.
But mirror Iris displayed odd behaviour right from the start as soon as she started her life before even being "online" very long. She suddenly could cook, was more aggressive, smashed a bottle over someone's head and could pick up Italian. That was a after a much shorter time than Kamilla and Singh had been around.
Prototypes can be buggy like that. Lore was less stable than Data (but better than B-4, who was better than the earlier models), K.A.R.R. was more unbalanced than K.I.T.T., maybe Eva learned a few things from making Iris' duplicate.
Terminator part wasn't too bad.
I still think it's lame that Cecile couldn't tell that was Iris this whole time.
Thank you! It could be written off as her being able to block her friends so as not to violate their privacy, but that doesn't hold when Barry was confronting Iris. Cecile should have been on full alert and easily able to tell that 'Iris' was lying and that Barry was truly confused about being framed.
I did like their fight in the apartment though, and how 'Iris' was using the mirrors to stab at Barry. Plus, she did say how they were faster and stronger than normal humans, so against a weakened Barry I could see it.
But still, I was hoping this fake Iris was not going to go all weepy and actually have some steel ovaries. Having a villain turn at the end can be too easy of a crutch to reach for.
