So I finally had the chance to watch the last episode of The Flash. And the more I watch it the more I think that the Flash is how you make a superhero show respecting the source material, so Guggenheim should really pay more attention to what happens in that show.
Anyway. I loved Iris. Whoever says that she was a whiny bitch in this episode and that she hasn’t the right to be mad at Barry or Joe ( and trust me I’ve read plenty) is an idiot. Iris was right to be mad at them. And finally someone said what we all think about the “ I lied to protect you” argument. It’s crap. Iris was looking into The Flash and she was in danger cause people knew she was looking into him, Barry’s enemies had the ability of finding out who he is, just like every superheroe enemy seems to do, and Iris is in danger even is she doesn’t know. But knowing and working with them she could be prepared. And seriously Barry lying about being the Flash is not even close to lying about some feeling or some thought that she isn’t even completely aware of having. In the end thought she reacted in a very mature way, she was mad, she told them she was mad, but she helped she was there to rescue them, she didn’t yell to much she didn’t hold a grudge, she was just there. I’m very happy that she knows. Her scenes with Caitlin and the way Caitlin immediately accepted her into the team were amazing.
Eddie. My poor Eddie. I know that Wells periodically checks that nothing’s changed in the future, but the truth is that in the future he lived he didn’t go back in time, and his presence here surely changed something, maybe nothing big, but surely something. Barry became the Flash sooner so couldn’t it be that now that Barry is the Flash him and Eddie will end up working together and Eddie’s will be remembered as a great cop, but Wells doesn’t know because that didn’t change anything major in his story with the Flash? I know it can’t be but… I just don’t want Eddie to become bad. I don’t. And anyway if he does it’ll be about Iris and not about being remembered, because it was clear that he didn’t give a crap about not being remembered and Wells used Iris to break him. So no. I don’t want this to happen. I really don’t.
I loved the episode. It was nice to see the Team working without Wells. It was a nice calm episode. I guess the clam before the storm that will be the last two episodes.
