First off after a 3 week hiatus I have never been so happy to hear- “My Name is Barry Allen and I am the fastest man alive.”, I literally starting crying.
BUT HOLY CRAP. What an episode it was. The opening scene was funny with Barry and Cisco’s wit 😂 Then Barry ran and I was having a heart attack when he almost fell to his death. All I can say is thank god for Cisco’s toys!! 🙌🏼
The club scene being brought up happened pretty much as I expected, lol made me laugh. I gave myself time to prepare for Grant’s sexy ass in a club but nothing prepared me for this smile …
🙈😆 I CAN’T. It’s too perfect for words. I surrender.
Then we get to the club scene …. Warning; (this is going to be a long rant ;)
So when they first get to the club every thing was fine and dandy and then Barry made me laugh when he wouldn’t let Jessie drink. hehe xD he’s going to be such a good daddy to the twins 🙌🏼 … #goodparenting
Then Iris walks in and Barry lights up…
CASE AND POINT …
The scene between Wally and Jessie was too cute, I’m totally shipping them together xD so cute !!
Cisco asking Caitlin to dance gave me major #KillerVibe feels :) loved it!
The rest of the time he pretty much couldn’t stop looking at her and I just about died. God where to even start ….
So we saw this clip in the preview and ever since then I was dying.
1. Iris mentioned marriage this time, which means things are definitely changing. Usually Barry is the one telling Iris they are married or seeing it in the future. But this time it came from Iris. 😍
2. You can tell that she totally meant “WHEN we get married” hehe!
Then she brought it up for the 2nd time in less than a minute. She definitely has Mrs. West-Allen on her mind and I’m like ; ….
…. then this magical scene happened and I floated to heaven ….
1. The way his eyes linger on Iris makes it so clear that he still loves her and it gives me so much hope. He can’t take his eyes off her !!!
2. Netflix and Chill…. HAHAHA. They totally need to do it. The fact that Barry and Iris are now getting comfortable with the idea that their counterparts are married and actually wonder what it would be like is a HUGE step for West-Allen.
I was overjoyed by Barry’s response; I see you B. You’re hesitation said it ALL…He’s clearly trying to act like its NBD but it so is!
However Iris seemed a bit disappointed. I think she realized that she is starting to see Barry the way he saw her before but now he isn’t in the same place. She is trying to flirt with him but his heart is guarded. To no fault of his own might I add. He has poured his heart out so many times but Iris never reciprocated. Poor baby. I think it may take a few episodes for him to realize that Iris wants him the way he wants her. But I think it will be worth the wait 🙏🏼💞
This last gif of them is pure perfection. Both on Grant and Candice’s part. You can tell that they are both shy, and possibly at this point she thinks Barry is aware that she’s flirting so she looks down, but the 2nd peek she takes makes it crystal clear that she is now ready to open her heart to him <3
After my heart was filled with West-Allen love, it was crushed when Trajectory showed up. Who might I add looks so much like Thea from Arrow 😜
Trajectory locked my baby in the pipeline…. here I am like
I thought it was so cool how she evaporated but when she turned blue I knew there would be a connection to Jay. The look on everyone’s face when Cisco mentioned Jay was Zoom broke my heart so much…it was bad enough that they let him in and trusted him after Wells betrayed them but now Barry got betrayed YET AGAIN. The scream at the end broke me apart and…. the ramifications are going to be devastating for him …
BUT I am hopeful that Iris and his friends will get him through this. I am excited for Flashback and more West-Allen … BRING IT 😁✌🏼
…I thought it was going to take me so much longer to find a show that would replace Healer in my heart, you guys. But I–like holy crap did I love the first two episodes of this show. I spent two hours hugging a pillow to my chest and making screeching noises and laughing and occasionally wailing.
I was worried, so worried, going into this, even though it’s by the people who did Secret Love Affair, because I am so tired of shows/books/movies/etc. that slutshame the lady when there’s an accidental pregnancy, especially a teenage pregnancy. I was terrified that this was going to be a show where everyone heaps crap upon the heroine, like it’s her fault and her fault alone she wound up with a child, as if the hero wasn’t an active and eager partner in the baby-making business.
And yes, sure, In-sang’s parents are freaking out hardcore, but Bom’s family? Bom’s family is a delight. Her mom went to her preparing to have a baby classes, her sister(?) appears pretty damn supportive, and even dad (who was rather upset Bom refused to tell them who the father was) got all weepy when he got to see pictures of his grandson. Bom’s family had her back when they didn’t even know who the dad was, and I’m so hoping that they will still have their back even though they’re going to have the in-laws from hell.
But Bom is magnificent. She’s level-headed and has prepped as thoroughly as she possibly can. (She went and applied for assistance! I loved that little exchange.) And when she went into labor she was telling In-sang’s little sister what to google online so they could not do this whole giving-birth-at-home thing blind while everyone else basically flipped out. The specter of single motherhood wasn’t easy for her–she got to admit that, she got to cry–but she was totally ready to do all of this without even telling In-sang. I’m worried for her, trapped with the in-laws from hell, but I think she has the determination and strength of will to endure whatever crap they throw in her way.
And In-sang. Oh, you guys, he is so earnest and useless and madly in love with her. Minus about 30 seconds of the funniest(? YMMV) cowardice ever, he has been absolutely unwavering in his love for her. Like, he saw her for the first time in nine months, managed to process that she was pregnant, and he was immediately I love her, I will marry her, I will go introduce her to my parents right this second, I am so sorry, I will never leave you again, I love you I love you I love you. THANK YOU. Your parents are going to try to make you two miserable, and you’re pretty useless so far, but I believe that you’re going to be unequivocally on her side, and that’s going to make it worth it.
And you know who else is on the young parents’ side? About half of the house staff. \o/ Yes, please, we need that magnificent part-sageuk-part-art-house-part-mansion building to not just be a place of despair and hating upon the heroine–those of you who have chosen Team Baby have my heart, thank you.
This show is funny–really funny. Sly sight gags and musical cues that change the mood and I’m sure there’s a ton of stuff I’m missing in the dialogue, but it is wonderful. The cinematography is great, of course, and they’re sticking with a lot of the same styles from SLA, and and and–
Watch it. Go. It is amazing. Please don’t let me down.
Sometimes I go back. Way back. I go back to that first meeting between Sheldon and Amy. I go back and watch their friendship that has now evolved into love. I go back and I watch those indicators that were there all along. I see him dancing with her. I see her looking at him like that. I see them, Sheldon and Amy, slowly falling in love. And then I watch recent episodes. I watch the SIK in the Locomotive Manipulation. I watch SIK 2.0 in The Indecision Amalgamation. And holy crap on a cracker… It just makes my feelings explode, my throat constrict, my eyes to tear up, and I cry so much harder than usual.
