    I missed nearly half the episode due to weather updates here in Iowa. :(

    Good Plan taking Iris to Earth-2 until someone accidentally spilled the beans.

    I am always jazzed up the see Captain Cold and he did not disappoint.
    Although I wonder how Flash and his crew knew Snart was in 1982 Russia?

    So King Shark can regrow limbs, Interesting! :cool:

    What happen to Earth-2 Harry. Did he stay or go back to Earth-1 to help?

    Why didn't she just put her a day in the future? Couldn't that have helped in some weird way?

    Total BS story. Why go ahead and kill Iris anyway, if but to bring her back after all next week? Badly written as a stall tactic to set up the finale.

    One thing to consider (especially given some of the theories online): what if that's not the real Iris that got killed, with the first few minutes revealing what actually happened (with the final minute existing for the sake of creating drama for the audience)?

    That could be an interesting twist that ties in with Barry and Wally's experiences with the Multiverse. The Martian Manhunter or Miss Martian could have impersonated Iris who is safe on Supergirl's Earth.

    More than likely, if the show actually did go with the "fake Iris" route, it would involve someone using the same face disguising technology Barry used to sneak Snart into ARGUS earlier in the episode.

    One more thing that hasn't been mentioned yet: anyone else notice the Wonder Woman related Easter Egg in the episode?

    Aside from the movie commercial? Didn't notice.

    Iris was saved! HOORAY!
    Glad Jay was back but as usual he didn't do anything but stand around. Come on writers/producers use him. You are wasting a good actor.

    Ok, so they did go with the switch, HR sacrificing himself to save Iris and redeem himself for his screw-up last week.

    But, then, the idiot writers had to go and give us another punch in the gut by having Barry sacrifice himself and go into the speed force for what amounts to summer vacation. WE KNOW HE'LL BE BACK IN OCTOBER!! Do they really think we're that stupid?

    ...Liked it right up until that lame ending. If they'd cut it off right as the earthquakes started okay but they keep going into...that. They even specified that he wouldn't actually be suffering in the trap. It's not even zero tension, it's anti-tension.

    I'm actually glad they did not end the season with a cliffhanger. This season made me angry starting with the Abra Kadabra episode, I'm glad I have a clear stopping point now.

    This amused me: Bob Ingersoll in his column The Law is a Ass #412 explains how Team Flash messed up in the episode "Cause and Effect". It boils down to the fact that Julian could have simply testified in Barry's stead. D'oh!

    So the writers had the same idiot disease as on Arrow (seasons 3-4) & Legends of Tomorrow. What a shock.

    Yeah, yeah; I know. There's nothing particularly surprising about television, film and comics getting the law wrong--often 'way wrong.
