I still thing the original ruling Barry guilty was dumber. We don't know what they did with DeVoe's original body. It might have been cremated. If it was still around, I think there was enough evidence wrt that body to have ruled Barry innocent in the first place. This whole case was a class in bad writing. I just hope it is over and forgotten.
Lol. If the body was cremated, how did he come back to life? Oh, Phoenix MetaHuman powers. Go figure. Barry goes Scott free for murder, but I assume that the courts still believes that he stabbed DeVoe. Shouldn’t there still be a penalty for that? The trial and release were just awful writing. I guess they think only 8 year olds watch the show?

If the body was cremated, they couldn't check to see if it was the correct body. In any case, I think any internal logic they are using about this whole case doesn't hold up to any real scrutiny.

That makes it even worse since that means Barry really did kill somebody, just not DeVoe. But I guess the judge was late for Maragarita Happy Hour and the Out-For-Blood Prosecutor already found another acting gig.

Funny, no one mentions Devoe taking over the unlucky chicks body in order to push homosexuality some more. Why would he take over her body? Why not one of the guys? Why not Barry himself? Ok, Barry is the flash, so they really can't do that. Make no mistake gentlemen, Devoe didn't drug his wife to go along with the plan.. Its so she will still love him. How much do you guys want to bet they kiss next episode? Its coming. No reason for this crap. I'm about to drop CW off my DVR.. Why can't we just have good shows without the liberal agenda.. Why? Bring back Knight Rider, The A-Team, Miami Vice ect from the 80's.. Sigh..

You know, funny you mentioned this. I was thinking earlier how The Flash was the only show out of the bunch that hadn't pushed the homosexuality angle. Obviously Arrow, SuperGirl, Black Lightning, and Legends are already there (with that 4 part episode really going to extra lengths). The problem, if Devoe's W reject him/her in part b/c he is now a she, you can imagine all the uproar over the show's phobia...

Cheers

These writers really need to take a class in super hero action. DeVoe puts country girl into a force field and is going to transfer to her and Barry just stands around and tells Ralph that there’s nothing they can do. Run around, zap him with lightning, throw stuff at him, vacuum the air from around him. But, No....!

If he can't get trough the force field or affect it, how would throwing lightning at the wall do anything? Why would throwing stuff at him do anything if it would just hit the wall? He could suck the air out but the force field was a large area, they would be OK for awhile, he couldn't get close enough, because of the force field, to such the air out around him.

I got the impression that the force field was just around country girl because Flash was behind everyone and got up and moved next to Ralph who was in front of country girl. But even if it was around DeVoe too, try something. And maybe they couldn’t beat the shield but maybe they could distract Devoe long enough to figure out a weakness. Don’t just stand around watching her brain get scrambled.

No kidding! I actually enjoyed last night's episode. It was well done. I just don't like having to wade through so many weak episodes to find gems like this one.

It was Devoe, girl, stretch, flash, then flash run ups to stretch when stretch is punching the wall. Looked like the force field surrounded devoe and the girl so he could "suck" her brain out and put his in.

So... couple of things...

1. I assume one thing Devoe would want to take Elongated Man's powers would be so that he could look like himself again if he wants.

2. So... last season we had a problem with the empty speed-trap which is why Barry had to leave and go into the speed force... then Cisco and friends get him out by tricking the trap with that fake Barry signal generator... but now, they used that to defuse the bomb... so... why isn't there still a problem with the empty speed force trap like before?

When Barry took the sphere thing out of the Speed Force, the lightning storm chased after him. When he threw it in the shipping container, the storm followed. I guess after defusing the explosion the storm took the sphere back?

Best not to overthink this. By thinking about it at all, you're doing more work than the show's writers.

Looks like Jay and Silent Bob, or their alter ego's, Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes will be dropping by Central City.

Quote:
Smith, who recently suffered a massive heart attack, has already directed
two episodes of The Flash, and confirmed he and Mewes would show up as a
pair of security guards in the 17th episode of the fourth season, "Null and
Annoyed," which will mark his third directorial contribution to the DC series

It's always been weird how/when networks decide to show repeats or no show at all. I know they have sweeps months in November, February, and May during the regular season. But in between those months it seems to be crapshoot with what they do. At least the Flash was renewed along with most of the other shows. Although I didn't see anything about iZombie. Which is my favorite show on the CW.

The last episode was March 13, and the next episode is April 10, so the show was off the air for an entire month.

Black Lighting started late....and Legends has to share a time slot with Supergirl so they ping pong their breaks. Legends will end season next week....then SG will be back.

I think next year CW will be adding another 2 slots (Sundays) to their schedule so there might be less of these "breaks", although they still take time off to allow for sweeps.

With shows having less episodes than they used to per season...there is more time for filler/re-runs during the season.

What do you mean “take time off to allow for sweeps”? Isn’t Sweeps Week the time when you want to put on new episodes to boost audience numbers so they can charge more for commercials in the future?

Yes... but if they don't skip weeks prior to sweeps, then they would run out of episodes to air during sweeps. I'm sure that was what the previous post meant.
