    Not as good as last week but I enjoyed the episode. Really like where Ramsey's character is going and I'm appreciating the Frost development. I hope we don't lose Caitlin though.

    In the lap of squalor I assure you.
    Clickbait youtubes were trying to tell me that the womyn on Flash are feuding BTS.

    Maybe getting rid of the more disruptive one will let the set be more like a family and less like a zoo gone wild.

    Yeah, I don't get why Barry brought Frost along and had her pose as his "metahuman consultant." Why not just let Caitlin steer for the sciencey stuff?

    Something on The Flash that doesn't make sense upon examination? I. Am. Shocked.

    This one was OK. The stuff with Rosso was OK, I was surprised didn't realize he was controlling the dead guy, I had assumed he was doing it the whole time.
    Meeting Ralph's mom was pretty fun.
    The stuff with Frost was good too.

    Although I didn't quite get the logic of "I don't want to hurt my son by telling him I broke up with all these men he grew really close to, so I'll tell him they all died instead, which surely won't hurt him nearly as much." HUH???????

    Ralph became a cop to help cover up his mother's endless murder spree of sexy men.

    When you put it that way.... But I interpreted it as if the men died then Ralph would not blame himself since it was something completely outside his control. Plus, death has a finality to it. He can move on. But if they left, then it is just like his dad leaving. It will reopen old wounds.

    Yeah, I took as it being easier for him to move on if they were dead instead of still being out there somewhere.

    Speaking as someone who actually lost my mother when I was a child, I think that's an incredibly wrong and backward notion.

    I think that was kind of the point, that was the whole reason Ralph was pissed at her.

    Catching up. Meh. I think I’ll stick around to Crisis and use that as my stepping off point.

    edited to add: I hadn’t finished the episode when I posted. But, yeah. It broke me. I’m done after crisis. When the fastest man alive isn’t able to get out of the room of an exploding zombie so they can have a lol moment ... and it would’ve worked with just Frost getting caught with the goo, and probably funnier.

    The show has gotten thin in its thinking.

    That's always been a problem when you can have someone move as fast as the Flash. How is he losing fights, or can't find someone that 'gets away' during a distraction? Guy's decently fast, as i understand it. Hell, he's been know to move fast enough to freeze time altogether. His power isn't about strength, but pure speed. Absolutely boring tv, but should be able to win every fight before the bad guy even knows he's fighting. Freeze time, handcuffs, grab a coffee, come back and unfreeze time, game over.

    Yeah, can't watch tv like that, but he gets tossed around by 'normals' a lot, and has to CHOOSE to stick around to get hit by a good explosion, no? Good that they aren't just all speedster bad guys, or using the kryptonite route to depower him constantly and make it a fair fight, but he almost never actually uses his super power for much of anything useful, and actively DOESN'T use it when it would be an obvious advantage.

    It was framed as Barry wanting to pass on his heroing wisdom to Frost before he dies.

    Not necessarily. The show's been inconsistent about portraying this, but I assume that the faster the Flash goes, the more exertion it takes to accelerate to that rate, so if he doesn't have the time or focus to shift into high gear, or is too fatigued, then his speed will be lower. I think "Enter Flashtime" did establish that Barry, Wally, and Jesse were all pushing themselves to their limits to maintain Flashtime for as long as they did.


    But Frost sees and hears everything Caitlin does even when Caitlin's dominant. So that doesn't explain it.

    It's not really the same thing to listen in on a conversation or to be a part of it.

    Frost was probably out of sorts because she is getting more time in the driver's seat, but Barry told them all that it's going to all change Dec. 10.

    Because the whole point of her story this season is: "Killer Frost gets to experience a full life." I mean hell they made a big point of throwing her a Birthday party because Killer Frost never experienced one.

    Yes, obviously, duh. But the desire to do that does not justify a clumsy story contrivance like having Frost in control in a situation where it would make enormously more sense for Caitlin to be in control.
