Quotes

Julian Albert: There is one thing you can do for me, mate.
Barry Allen: Anything.
Julian Albert: Quit.
Barry Allen: What?
Julian Albert: Tender your resignation from the Central City Police Department, effective immediately. I can overlook the unexplained absences, the constant disregard for the rules and regulations, but your moral compass is broken, my friend. I point-blank refuse to work with someone whose sense of right or wrong is as flippant as the weather, someone who thinks friendship is more important than justice. You are unfit to be CSI.

Flashpoint Ramifications
22 November 2016 | by ThomasDrufkeSee all my reviews

I didn't expect the ramifications form Flashpoint would still be felt 7 episodes in, but that was the case with tonight's episode. Caitlin struggled with her powers, Wally was stuck in the speed-force pod thing, Cisco & Barry's beef over Donte was renewed, and even Julian Albert was an issue. All having to do with Flashpoint. With that said, the episode seemed like it should have fit way earlier in the season. If it wasn't for Savitar and the Alchemy reveal, I would say this episode was far better suited for right after Flashpoint ended.

I think the episode as a whole was jumbled and uneven, but there were flashes (pun intended) of greatness. For one, I'm really enjoying Caitlin's time as Killer Frost this year. She has gotten barely anything to do the first two seasons, so seeing her get significant screen time was pleasing. Cisco worrying for Caitlin's goodwill was especially touching. At the same time, the resolution to her issues wasn't earned. You can't spend an entire ¾ of the episode on her transformation, only to change her back once Wally needs help.

I think the episode would have benefited more if they spread both conflicts over different episodes. I'm one of those fans who could care less about anything involving Wally, and this episode didn't do anything to get me excited about his role going for. The tone was on the darker side for the entire episode and all of a sudden, Wally comes in and starts cracking jokes and boasting an unusually gleeful smile. I understand HR and Cisco crack jokes all the time, but it feels far more natural than anything going on with Wally. I have faith in the writers going forward, especially considering how Roy improved on Arrow, but I'm just tired of him right now. He's almost as bad as Carl on Walking Dead.

Caitlin was the designated villain this week, but I loved the ever-so- brief appearances of Alchemy and his boss, Savitar. Savitar dragging Barry through the speed force? That was bada**. It begs the question of how in the world he will be stopped, although Caitlin seemed to scare him away relatively easy. But do I believe the ending reveal of Albert as Alchemy is legit? I'm not sold yet. I thought I remember the producers stating the Alchemy reveal happened in episode 9, like all CW shows, so I guess we shall wait and see.

+Julian reveal

+Savitar

+Caitlin's arc..

-…But it was ruined by Wally

-Better suited for right after Flashpoint ended
