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…
Barry and Joe cover for Eddie at the station because he’s still being held captive by Reverse Flash. Eddie’s computer at his desk is on and it looks like it was recently used…Was someone using his computer? Why would looking at Eddie’s computer help find him?… Weird either way.
Barry’s looked everywhere in Central City and still can’t find Eddie, maybe look for clues in Dr. Well’s mansion or STAR Labs?
Iris – “The man in yellow took Eddie right in front of me.”
Is she going to be passive aggressive about knowing Barry’s secret identity? Please no.
Barry – “Are you okay?”
Iris – “No, no, not at all.”
What a coincidence, this is what I think most times Iris says something. I mean physically she’s okay and not dead or kidnapped, a little dramatic here.
Iris – “The Flash was there, he said he’d fix it, but he hasn’t.”
Barry – “I’m sure he’s doing everything he can.”
She knows Barry’s the Flash, let him search for Eddie.
Iris – “I’m finding it pretty hard to trust the Flash right now.”
Barry – “Well then trust me.”
Iris just glares at him…
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.
There’s a ton of crime happening tonight.
Joe calls Barry for help and he appears in the backseat instantly. The indecent exposure guy almost discovers Barry’s secret identity! Barry switches Joe with the criminal driving the getaway car and places the other guy in Eddie’s backseat. The guys in the back could totally attack him, heck, the indecent exposure guy could easily expose himself again.
Criminal – “I think we lost them.”
Joe – “Uh, no you didn’t. And by the way, you’re under arrest.”
This is cute and all, but maybe it’d be quicker for Barry to bring these guys to jail.
They stop a bank robbery after the car chase.
Barry – “I’m just curious, have you not heard of me?”
Seriously, are they not reading Iris’s blog?
Eddie feels a little left out of the Joe/Barry bromance.
I want to start by saying I don’t watch the Arrow, but I do know some things about the Flash; several years ago I wanted to write a Flash screenplay, but then Iron Man came out and started the superhero movie revolution and stole all my ideas. Plus I’m a terrible writer with an even worse attention span so nothing ever came from it. Anyway let’s start this Flash Recap, a show I thought looked surprisingly promising. You can watch it here.
Barry – “My name is Barry Allen and I am the fastest man alive.”
Were there any dead people that were faster than him? Is the alive part really necessary?
