Yeah, the inclusion of Jekyll/Hyde still has me scratching my head. It's not like he was a staple of the old Universal monster shared universe of movies from back in the day.

The only Universal movie I can recall him from is Abbott and Costello Meet Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. That wasn't so much part of their old shared universe as just a series for Abbott and Costello.

And, of course, he'll eventually prove his worth. Then he'll have to go back to his own earth, or maybe get killed, and next season we'll have a new Wells.

It's amazing that, for all the writers lack of imagination when it comes to every Big Bad being a speedster, they've so far had zero difficulty coming up with new versions of Wells.

Now I have to wonder - much as they've shown every earth to have a Big Belly Burger, does every earth have a Harrison Wells? Are they both a multiversal constant?

The Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II is a single–seat, twin turbofan engine, straight wing jet aircraft developed by Fairchild-Republic for the United States Air Force (USAF). Commonly referred to by its nicknames Warthog or Hog, its official name comes from the Republic P-47 Thunderbolt, a World War II fighter that was effective at attacking ground targets. The A-10 was designed for close-in support of ground troops, close air support (CAS), and providing quick-action support for troops against helicopters and ground forces. It entered service in 1976 and is the only production-built aircraft that has served in the USAF that was designed solely for CAS. Its secondary mission is to provide forward air controller – airborne (FAC-A) support, by directing other aircraft in attacks on ground targets. Aircraft used primarily in this role are designated OA-10.

The A-10 was intended to improve on the performance of the A-1 Skyraider and its poor firepower. The A-10 was designed around the 30 mm GAU-8 Avenger rotary cannon. Its airframe was designed for durability, with measures such as 1,200 pounds (540 kg) of titanium armor to protect the cockpit and aircraft systems, enabling it to absorb a significant amount of damage and continue flying. Its short takeoff and landing capability permits operation from airstrips close to the front lines, and its simple design enables maintenance with minimal facilities. The A-10 served in Operation Desert Shield, and Operation Desert Storm, the American intervention against Iraq's invasion of Kuwait, where the A-10 distinguished itself. The A-10 also participated in other conflicts such as Operation Urgent Fury in Grenada, the Balkans, Afghanistan, Iraq, and against ISIL in the Middle East.

The A-10A single-seat variant was the only version produced, though one pre-production airframe was modified into the YA-10B twin-seat prototype to test an all-weather night capable version. In 2005, a program was started to upgrade remaining A-10A aircraft to the A-10C configuration with modern avionics for use of precision weaponry. The U.S. Air Force had stated the F-35 would replace the A-10 as it entered service, but this remains highly contentious within the Air Force and in political circles. With a variety of upgrades and wing replacements, the A-10's service life may be extended to 2040.

Good point. I hadn't even considered the similarity in motivations. Yet another point on which the writer's show a lack of imagination. They'd have done better just sticking with the...

Spoiler:
....He was the first speedster and challenges anyone who comes close to his power.

Of course, another thought which just occurred to me is that....

Spoiler:
They'll make Savitar some future version of one of the other speedsters, or maybe even one we haven't seen yet. It might fit in with whole "villain starts out as a (seeming) friend" trope they keep using.

Thankfully, they ended the episode with Joe, Iris, & Company finally showing support for Wally as Kid Flash. Otherwise I'd have thought they'd use Wally for this, with the continued frustration and anger over opposition to him being a hero turning him down the dark road.

My brother was telling me earlier that, with the release of Doctor Strange (and now Moana), Disney has set a new record for yearly domestic box office totals, at around $2.49 billion, topping the previous $2.45 billion set by Universal.

This with Moana really just starting its run and Rogue One having yet to be released. Either way, it's already a banner year for the House of Mouse.

According to Wikipedia, Universal seems to be working on a new Wolf Man script as part of the reboot shared universe. So, I'm guessing the answer is "no", although they could always find a way to reference the 2010 film in the new one.

Yeah, I've never been sure why they don't seem to want to attempt another Bat TV series. It could be cool.

Naval Station Pearl Harbor is a U.S. naval base adjacent to Honolulu, in the U.S. state of Hawaii. In 2010, along with the United States Air Force's Hickam Air Force Base, the facility was merged to form Joint Base Pearl Harbor–Hickam.

Pearl Harbor is the headquarters of the United States Pacific Fleet. The attack on Pearl Harbor by the Empire of Japan on Sunday, 7 December 1941 brought the United States into World War II.

Naval Station Pearl Harbor provides berthing and shore side support to surface ships and submarines, as well as maintenance and training. Pearl Harbor can accommodate the largest ships in the fleet, to include dry dock services, and is now home to over 160 commands. Housing, personnel, and family support are also provided and are an integral part of the shore side activities, which encompasses both permanent and transient personnel.

The Navy base itself was recognized on 29 January 1964 as a National Historic Landmark district and with the National Register of Historic Places since 1976. Within its bounds, it contains several other National Historic Landmarks associated with the attack on Pearl Harbor, including the Arizona, Bowfin, and Utah. As an active Navy base, many of the historic buildings that contributed to the NHL designation are under threat of demolition and rebuilding.

Edit: Speaking from personal experience, it's also a lovely place to visit.

Now it's just time to nail down what he wants from Santa. Last time I spoke with him about it, he was wavering back and forth between a bicycle or a drone.

In discussing this with the wife, we were both hesitant about the drone. We think (a) he might be a little young for that, and (b) It'd end up in the neighbors yard, getting chewed on by their a**!%%% dogs.

Well, yes, but it didn't seem like a lot of time passed between reading the Darkhold and making that swap. She apparently constructed May's LMD very quickly, and using resources her own builder didn't notice missing.

Yeah, this. Maybe there was an unspecified time-jump between this episode and the previous one, and the digital brain plan we saw Robo-chick working on was the one she would eventually use for May-bot.

Yes, but that was him as the Trickster on Barry Earth. This was him sort of reprising his role from the old 90's Flash with John Wesley Shipp as Barry, which was a nice homage to that original series.

I like how they handled the "Julian is Alchemy" situation.

We all knew it pretty much from the begining of the season, but this resolves that in a way that we get to keep Julian now that it's been revealled.

Mainly because I think Barry needs someone around him that doesn't like him and will call him an idiot when he needs to hear it. Julian is really good at that.

Indeed, although I wonder if Tom Felton is going to stick around, and for how long.

(3) Assumes facts not in evidence. In two different episodes, Wally has been clocked as "faster than Barry was at this point in his training." No one has yet said that Wally is faster than Barry is now, nor is it certain he ever will be. He might accelerate more quickly and still not be able to match Barry's top speed.

Apparently, I must do better about representing my sarcasm. Although, in all honesty, it's easy to believe Wally is faster, since the writer's seem to make everyone with speed powers (or at least all the villains) faster than Barry.

That was interesting, weird, and a little "WFT"....

Spoiler:
I'm still not completely sure what Eli's plan was, other than nuking the city while working his way up the power food chain from creating elements to molecules and beyond.

And I'm not entirely clear on what they did to stop him, other than seemingly banish both Eli and Robbie to another dimension. Maybe they explained it during all that dialogue and I just missed it.

Loved the new director showing off his mad skills and appearing in uniform.

You go, Mack! Grab the girl and kiss her! That's what the Duke would have done.

Sooooo....if the robo-chick was only turned bad by interacting with the Darkhold, when did she have time to replace May with duplicate? Maybe that's the brain pattern she was working on at the end of the previous episode, based on data they acquired from May while Radcliffe was trying to ssave her life. Either way, it looks like the LMDs are going to do battle with SHIELD. That coud be interesting, as anyone can be replaced, only to be revealed at a later time. Could lead to some fun acting scenarios.

Then again, when it comes to Zola's Algorithm from Winter Soldier, they did state it would eliminate anyone who might pose a threat to Hydra "now, or in the future". So he didn't necessarily already have to be studying magic. Something or things in his life made the algorithm decide he was dangerous.

I started to "favorite" this, but then realized the truth of it made me sad. It seems the writers really don't know how to challenge him other than, someone else is faster, so he must learn to be.

Universal execs have already stated that Dracula Untold is no longer part of their shared universe.

I think I probably read that somewhere, as it sounds familiar. Either way, huzzah!

Well, that was....interesting.

Spoiler:
So, let me get this straight. Savitar is pissed because sometime in the future Barry traps him in wherever/whenever. But, according to all the other s$~* they pissed out their mouths, Savitar has been around forever, tempting a multitude of worlds into trying to free him/bring about his rise. And, somehow, the Philospher's Stone is directly tied to Savitar being able to manifest in whatever world the stone appears on, while at the same time being able to grant meta-human abilities.

(1) Please tell me the writers will stop doing whatever drugs they're doing in order to creat the most convoluted, acid trip storyline imaginable.

(2) Please tell me they aren't going down the road of the Philospher's Stone/Speed Force/Savitar (since they all seem to be inextricably linked) being the source of all meta humans.

(3) Speaking of (2), please tell me the Philosopher's Stone isn't Savitar's heart, or some stupid s@&% like that.

Wally is still annoying. Of course he's faster than Barry. Isn't everybody? At least they're writing him like he just enjoys being a speedster. Reminds me of the original Wally.

Loved seeing Jay again. All his words of wisdom were cool as s+!+. Too bad they made him get his ass kicked.

I loved some of the easter eggs: Julian's full name being Julian Albert Desmond was a nice nod to the original Alchemy. And the street Barry sees in the future was a nice nod to Carmine Infantino.

I'm glad they didn't regress further down the Cisco-is-mad-at-Barry road. That would have been idiotic, considering the epiphany Cisco had in the Invasion rip-off. It's nice, though, to see that Barry isn't the only member of Team Flash (how I hate that concept) to make stupid decisions based on being an emotional weakling.

All in all, this may be the season that gets me to stop watching. Sad to say, but the story line has become kind of a joke.
