And one day I’ll find who killed my mother and get justice for my father. That day is today. Good, hopefully that’ll be the end of that monologue.
Wells – “We’re out of cows where I come from.”
Why does he want to go to the future again?
“Go ahead Barry, ask it.”
Barry – “
Am I fast enough now bitch? Why did you kill my mother?”
Eobard – “Because I hate you. Not you now, you years from now. You in another future.”
That seems like a good enough reason to kill someone’s mother.
Barry – “Why were we enemies?”
Eobard – “It doesn’t matter.”
It does matter!
“Neither of use was strong enough to defeat the other.”
Barry didn’t have anyone to team up with in the future?
“Until I learned your name.”
When? During the end of their first battle?!
His plan was to go back in time and wipe Barry off the face of the earth, but when he couldn’t do that he kills Barry’s mom instead. Okay, makes sense, but Future Barry’s actions don’t. Saving his younger self and then leaving his parents with Reverse Flash seems like a terrible idea, also why leaves Reverse Flash in the past? Did he cease to exist as soon as Wells stabbed his mom?…
“If you give me what I want, I’m going to give you what you want. You can go back and save your mother, save your father from prison, you can reunite the Allen family.”
He could save his dad literally right now…
Barry – “No I don’t believe you, I want to kill you right now.”
Smartest thing Barry has said all season.
Eobard – “I used to know that rage, but now, somehow, I know what Joe and Henry feel when they look on you with pride. With love.”
He’s really brown-nosing Barry right now, probably because he wants to get out of the pipeline cell. Didn’t he design that with Cisco? He should be able to get out.
Barry – “No, don’t you ever say that to me.”
Eobard – (It was me Barry! I love you!)
“I’m giving you a chance to undo all the evil I’ve done. Don’t you want that chance?”
But then he’ll just do more evil…
A Dr. Wells introduction monologue?! Weird because we usually see him at the end of episodes.
Iris ordered 200 return label stickers for her and Eddie…how many physical letters does she send?
Iris – “I ordered 2000 by accident. I guess I ordered wrong.”
Why am I not surprised? 200 was still excessive.
Barry – “Wells took my mom from me.”
She knows, we know, everyone knows.
“I won’t let him take someone from you too.”
I mean Wells already took Eddie…
They start reading the future newspaper…could I have done that too? If I inspected the future newspaper more carefully maybe I could have speculated what would happen in the show. Or read the comics. One or the other. The newspaper talks about the Flash’s disappearance after his brawl with the Reverse Flash. The article was written by Iris West-Allen, watch it be some other Allen she marries in the future. Don’t get your hopes up Bare. Barry’s also been “promoted” to Director of Central City police, CSI division, in the future. Unless the current director appears on screen, there’s nothing that can convince me he doesn’t already have this position.
Gideon – “A founding member of-”
Barry – “That’s not important, what are you?”
Can any of his Justice League buddies time travel?
“Do you know who he really is?”
That was last week’s episode Bare, get up to speed.
“Why did he come here?”
Gideon – “To kill you.”
But he needs to train him to kill him…the explanation better be good.
Cisco put a tracker on Well’s wheelchair without him noticing…I have no idea how.
Comic Relief – “If we’re wrong about him and he is paralyzed, then I’m going to hell for that one.”
He still thinks he’s paralyzed…even standing in Well’s secret evil room.
“Ask questions fast! He’s coming here!”
If there’s one thing Barry can’t do it’s get things done fast.
Barry – “Why did he kill my mom?”
Gideon – “Because he was angry.”
Barry – “About what?”
Gideon – “That you escaped.”
Damn it Gideon, can it answer more specifically? These aren’t helpful at all!
Barry – “Gideon, don’t tell Dr. Wells we were here.”
Gideon – “Okay.”
Wait that worked?
Apparently Barry created Gideon in the future. I guess Dr. Wells stole her, maybe make her password encoded next time Bare.
This episode was one day away from airing on April Fools’ Day, much like it’s title character, the episode came out too fast.
This is the third consecutive episode that’s started with a flashback.
Mrs. Allen enjoying that glass of wine after dealing with her annoying son all day.
Pretty impressive super speed battle visually considering their TV budget.
Barry makes room on his mother murder board for a collage of Dr. Wells or maybe this is an updated version. He’s really good at making these collages.
Barry – “Even though I’ve spent so much time with him this past year, I have no idea who he is.”
Joe – “Didn’t you read a whole book about him?”
Maybe he read through it too quickly…he didn’t absorb the information.
Barry – “…”
Quickly changes subject.
“Do you think he wanted me to become the Flash?”
Joe – “Everything he’s done- bringing you to STAR Labs, giving you the suit, training you.”
Cisco gave him the suit!
“Every piece of evidence points to Wells being Reverse Flash except for the blood sample. So there’s no way it can be him.”
Come on guys.
“He’s been patient…scary patient.”
Too patient…stupidly patient.
They inserted last week’s ending into this week’s opening…
Barry relives the day and still comes to the killed by hail conclusion…he blew both of his opportunities.
At least the Chief’s coat isn’t ruined, that was always more important than being able to walk.
Caitlin – “He’s your brother.”
Cisco – “Yeah, not by choice.”
Like most brothers then.
Caitlin will go with Cisco to his brother’s birthday party and Barry experiences more time travel shenanigans and clichés.
They flashback to the pilot episode…this is still Season 1 guys, we know what happened.
So it looks like they finally cast the other brother, if a life of crime doesn’t work out for these two I’m sure modeling is always an option.
Thank God they had their seat belts on, that’s how they survived the plane crash.
Honestly I think all bowling alleys have the same art design.
Barry – “This is one of my favorite places in the world.”
That’s kind of depressing.
“I’m guessing bowling is one of the only sports where I can destroy you at.”
Shouldn’t this be the one sport she has a chance in?
I wonder how fast Barry can run with those goofy bowling shoes on. Besides ice, arriving on time, and Iris, I bet running in a bowling alley would be one of his many weaknesses.
A bowling date is like first week dating 101 and Iris loves bowling as much as Barry, but this is the first time she and Eddie have been bowling.
Iris is encroaching on Barry right in front of her boyfriend and Barry’s girlfriend, everyone knows you don’t wipe stuff off people’s faces unless you’re their mother/grandmother/girlfriend.
