I remember forever ago you said there would be a connection with the Weather Wizard lightning rod discussion and Westallen. But it's Cisco, so he's going to bring him back?? I'm a little confused :-/
Yeah I did. They are laying the groundwork well and now it’s approaching my fingers and toes are crossed because I want it to so badly.
Here’s the summary:
Cisco in 2x09: “We could just map out those fluctuations to pinpoint his location, removing all the electricity from his immediate surroundings, attracting it to one spot, the same way a lighting roddoes.”
That’s what Cisco did on the rooftop, so that Barry could be struck by lightning again. However, now Barry is trapped in the Speedforce. From the promo it’s clear they need Cisco to Vibe and figure out Barry’s whereabouts.
Wells in 2x21: “Your brainwave sends the necessary data to pinpoint whatever corner of the universe Barry is stuck in”
Finding him is only half the problem. There has to be something to bring him back and here is where Iris hopefully comes into it.
In the comics Barry is able to pinpoint Iris’ location and like a lightning rod, he is able to ground himself by focusing on her, attracting him to that one spot, wherever she is.
That’s how we’re all hoping he gets out of the Speedforce.
There is no real “good” or “bad” in this series. There are many ways it shows what it means to be human instead, the negative and positive traits. So painting BRA, EMA or any other of the fractions as “the real villains” or “evil ones” is missing the point, yet I see it done all the time. Remember, humanizing a character doesn’t mean excusing their actions!
