    Could be a reference to The Shade, who is an awesome villain/antihero.

    And yeah, lots of people seem to have some awareness of the other life they lived. Don't know why its metahuman specific, though, you'd think lots of people over in Flashpoint would have lived notably different lives. Unless, of course, its not a natural phenomenon, but something Dr Alchemy is inducing ( he doesn't care about people whose alternate selves were normal humans ).

    That'd be awesome if it was, I really liked Shade in JL/JLU and would like to see him in live action, though I'm not sure that live action would do him justice.

    Well, certainly didn't expect Caitlin to come forward with her powers so soon.

    Side-note, since we're still living in an alternate timeline that Barry created, do these versions of the characters remember everything that the main timeline know up until the season 2 finale? Because they remember Harry, Earth 2, Killer Frost, and the like.

    Can't believe it took them this long to get a Wells out of Starlabs and address that whole thing.

    Barry blames himself/blames flashpoint for things changing, like Caitlin getting her powers (claiming she didn't have them in the original timeline) but, she only started shows signs of her power in the past month pr so, how does he know she wouldn't have gotten them in the original timeline too?

    haven't we seen him with cups of coffee from the shop, and bags of fast food... wouldn't that imply that he went to go get those things

    Wow, what an ending to an episode! I'm actually kind of annoyed they ended on that note, but I guess I'll have to live with it...

    Pretty heavy emphasis on Barry and Wally this episode compared to the Flash, which was kind of nice.

    Alchemy was pretty creepy and I wasn't really expecting Savitar to look like that.

    Everyone in this episode is not too bright.

    So they lock up Wally while Caitlin may soon turn evil is free.

    Why didn't they tell the Earth-19 Harrison Wells about being arrested on sight?

    Glad Caitlin told them about her powers instead of going through secrets like Cisqo. However, why is she turning evil when she wasn't in any timeline? Is it because of her Earth-2 counterpart?

    I really liked this episode! There were a lot of unexpected things in it, like Caitlin admitting to her powers and Wally trying to lure Alchemy into a trap. I just assumed Caitlin hiding her powers would be dragged over several episodes and Wally would just run away from the team to join Alchemy, so good job, show. The only thing I didn't like was how they defeated Shade. Didn't they say he was vibrating to create the image of a cloud? So how would turning on lights cause him to fall to the ground?

    HR has finally grown on me and I thought he was hilarious at the horror movie.

    Good episode. I gave it an 8, which means the show is staying pretty solid for me, with some exceptions. I think Shade should have been a tougher villain to capture than that, and it certainly looked like the writers forgot what his power was and that he only resembled a shadow...

    But still it was only a small part of the episode. Although, the thing of Shade attacking the same movie night show as the one Barry was supposed to attend is could be telling. If Julian is Alchemy, he could have seen it as a way to get rid of Barry at the same time that they're trying to keep the Flash distracted.

    Still, I hope it's not Julian, as I think it would be too easy a plot. Maybe if he had a split personality and doesn't know he's Alchemy...

    Anyway, some nice progression with Caitlyn. I'm glad she finally told them, even if it was under duress. Thanks Cisco! :cmad: I also liked that Barry is getting more heat for thoughtlessly playing with their lives for his own good. So far, Barry is a hero who is just trying to clean up his own messes.

    Maybe he should go back in time just once more.:whatever:

    I liked the way they left it. Savitar looks kick-ass and looks to be a real threat to Barry. Can't wait for the next episode!
