When Cisco and Joe are examining the vault door after Melting Point burned through it Cisco says the door was 10 inches thick and required 6,000 degrees to burn through it. Yet none of the money, which was laying out in the open no more than a few feet from the vault door, show no sign of having been exposed to such high heat. The money should have been burned up, or at the very least been greatly singed. See more »

Cisco Ramon: What if... What if I just, like, breach all three of the bus metas to, like, Earth-2?
Dr. Harry Wells: How about this? We alter each bus meta's DNA by performing intercellular surgery.
Cisco Ramon: And what? Turn them into chickens?
Dr. Harry Wells: Yeah.
Cisco Ramon: We're not Frankensteining innocent people.

Probably the worst episode of the flash I've seen.
15 March 2018 | by matthewrhillSee all my reviews

The episode truly is awful. The show is called "the flash", meaning it's about BARRY ALLEN - not his gf. And what was with that line at the end, "It's up to you." when Barry tells Iris it's up to her if she wants to give up "her powers". I'm sorry but no, they are Barry's powers, not hers. This was truly a filler episode that almost made me want to stop watching the series period. I mean, if Iris would have kept his powers that would have ended the series for 90% of the fans right then and there.
