    I didn't enjoy watching Team Flash moping around and disliking one another, but I'm glad Barry won't be engaging in any more time travel to fix things.

    The new metahuman specialist, OTOH, is kinda awesome. I hope he sticks around.

    Barry learned his lesson last year but still went back in time at the end of S2 so idk if this is the last we've seen of him altering time.

    I thought this was, without a doubt, better episode than the premiere. Barry is definitely a flawed character but hopefully this will be the last of his stupidity when it comes to time travel. At least for a while.

    I thought Dr. Alchemy was cool even though we didn't get to see too much of him. I am intrigued by him though. I did still feel The Rival was a weak villain.

    I think this series would benefit from fleshing out their villains a little more, even if they aren't gonna be impactful in the long run. Maybe growing up on the DCAU and those stories gives me the feeling they could do a lot better with these villains.

    John Diggle Jr.? Looks like we get "Connor Hawke" later in this timeline...

    We also get a glimpse of Killer Frost, as well as a Vibe and Flash team up! And any appearance with (the real) Jay Garrick is welcome. Looking forward to next week's episode! 8/10

    One of my favorite episodes. Don't see Tom Felton as Alchemy, way too obvious, I think he'll become a hero in due time actually. Just too much of a red herring this soon. He doesn't like Barry because he thinks he's doing things underhanded and is reprehensible in some way for what is going on. Hell, Felton's character might even think Barry IS Alchemy at some point if you see things from his limited perspective, something odd is going on.

    Liked this episode. I really wanted him to go back just one more time in order to fix things, but then I guess that's the allure of time travel. In reality, Barry is probably in his fifth or sixth alternate reality by now, so stopping going back again is a good choice.

    And as I thought, once he explained that he was the major reason for his friends problems the wounds started to heal over. Sad to see Baby Sara is no more, and it's interesting think about how the changes he made effected so many others and what ways.

    Such as how does Flashpoint change the gender of a child from someone in an entirely different city!? Butterfly effect in full flutter!

    As for Killer Frost, what makes her Killer? How does the awakening of her powers turn Caitlin evil? Or was she Killer Frost only on Earth 2 and we'll now see Kind Frost joining Team Flash?

    I really liked the Arrow premiere as well as the Supergirl premiere, but this episode just further illustrates that Flash is the "A" show in the Arrowverse. I feel like it's on an entirely different level.

    Barry's actions changing things so that Diggle had a son rather than a daughter retroactively means, or at least seems to mean, that when the Legends got knocked out of time and ended up in Star City in 2046, they ended up in a "post-Flashpoint" future, which is just neat.

    If we're going to see any changes on Vixen, it won't be until a hypothetical third season.

    This season's Vixen episodes are set during Arrow S4/Flash S2/Legends S1. Laurel already knew Mari during Vixen's appearance on Arrow last season, and this season of Vixen explains that story.

    Liked seeing them genuinely address the danger of time travel with genuine consequences, loved the Jay scene, and the Flashpoint timeline bleeding over is a cool concept, definitely enjoyed Alchemy, looks like he's working with Savitar based on Alchemy's entrance and the ending tease. Felton looks to be an interesting cast addition, should be nice to get more scenes in the lab, would be cool to see Barry do his actual job more often. Also if these first two episodes are any indication, they've upped their game with the action sequences, Flash vs. Rival was great.

    Jekyll and Hyde approach maybe? Could be a cool way to keep Caitlin and still do Killer Frost.

    it's possible . inthe books it's and batman brave and bold it was over ronny dumping her. but it'll most likely be that via her mother.

    Can't say I am a fan of this episode, for starters I can't stand Felicity after last season on Arrow so her being on any show makes me want to change the channel(I am seriously thinking of dropping Arrow because of her) so that is strike one.

    Strike 2 is the episode was way to negative for me. Time travel causing problem is always a cheap method of creating drama in my books(I am probably scared due to years of it being used as a cheap plot device on Smallvile. lol)

    As for Alchemy, watch it be Wells. lol

    Did Tom Felton ever play the role of the protagonist friend?
    Harry Potter, here, and in Rise of the Planet of the Apes, all the roles I've seen him in are hot water between his character and the main ones.

    So, has anyone got an idea who the arm belongs to? Alchemy, or is it someone else?

    I'm thinking it's Savitar, we already saw what I assume was his cult when Rival met Alchemy.
