    This was a great start. A little disjointed perhaps but this episode was a lot more about emotion than anything else. I'm definitely thinking TPTB are putting Barry and Caitlin together now though. Which is good. They have great chemistry together.

    No one ever says it so I am going to say it, I love Joe as a character. Between this episode and Season 1 I have always loved seeing him care for Barry as much as he was his own son.

    I agree. I'd argue he's actually one of the best father figures on TV.

    I just sort of found it strange that they kind of ...

    Spoiler:
    dropped the threads in season 1 so quickly with Firestorm and Eddie. I'd expected, with all that time-travelling and all that these people would be back in some capacity. But it felt like TPTB have completely moved away from that with the introduction of Jay Garrick at the end.

    No tags needed here, unless talking about future episodes...

    Interesting start to the season, wonder how long it will take to see Ronnie again.

    Also, I agree about Joe, great character!

    I am so glad The Flash is back. I agree with other comments about the episode seeming disjointed. However, do you think it was intentionally made that way?

    It was disjointed a little. It would have been nice to have had the full 'closing of the blackhole, THEN skip to 6 months later, rather than skip back and forth..
    BUT i like that barry is doing what he can to repair buildings damaged in the night time.. but i didn't like it that the team seemed to splinter up..

    Also, what was the point of Cisco doing those security upgrades if Garret could just walk in like that..>?

    As to Catlin and firestorm, i wonder how is he going to return since he IS in legends of tomorrow..

    And between him and Barry's father, Barry is imo one of the best loved characters as far as family goes..

    I think the specific issues you mentioned were due to actor availability. There's nothing saying they can't come back later.

    They didn't know there were any other speedsters out there, so their security probably wasn't designed with that in mind.

    I liked the episode overall except for switching between time frames. Cisco reacting after the other flash walks in after he just got done explaining all his upgrades was one of my favorite lines along with when he and Joe at Flash Day before Atom Smasher showed up.

    These will be addressed latr in the season.
    Spoiler:
    Some of the characters from last season will, actually, return. Harrison Wells and Eddie Thawn are supposed to return at some point. And, in regards to Firestorm, there's going to be a new person joining with Martin Stein in the Firestorm Matrix.

    If you're looking for some great information about The Flash (along with most of the great comic book shows and movies) check out Emergency Awesome on youtube. Charlie does videos for every episode and puts out great and entertaining information there.

    IDK but I think Atom Smasher may have been a little on the Edge, not being able to Cope from all the radiation he was absorbing

    Since I think episode 4 I've been seeing them as a much more apt couple than What's-Her-Face ever was. But the whole Ronnie thing kinda threw a wrench in that idea. I'd rather them avoid a triangle as much as possible. However, I do like how Arrow pulled a fast one on us.

    Well that's the thing. In the comics Green Arrow and Black Canary are supposed to be a couple, which is clearly what they were going for in the first season, but changed their mind based on the chemistry between Oliver and Felicity. I'm hoping they'll make the same choice now.

    I think that's also what made it work well. I don't like the trope of having the character end up with their first love interest (except it kinda worked on How I Met Your Mother). Real life doesn't always work that way and it's nice to see that on TV from time to time. Which is also why I hated that Lana Lang was around so long in Smallville. I never liked Berry being with...I honestly don't recall her name and am too lazy to google

    Makes me wonder how close they will follow the comics. A lot of people are going to be angry

    I haven't heard anything from Arrow for their divergences...I doubt Flash will catch any real flak unless it does something crazy like have Jar Jar Binks on it.
