Did You Know?


This episode has a lot of callbacks to the pilot episode, from Barry waking up to "Poker Face" much faster than previously, to the creation of new metas, to many of Barry's ramblings being quotes from the first episode. See more »


It is obvious that a stand-in was used for Cisco in the over-the-shoulder shot near the end of the episode when Iris is talking to him. The stand-in's hair is a different color than Cisco's and the stand-in's shirt is gray instead of black. See more »

Change in theme and central character of the show
11 April 2018 | by gtmkumar766See all my reviews

Before starting of this season I was huge fan of Team Flash and I rate Season 3 the best of all seasons but in the current season it has gone out of focus making Iris the central character and everybody rolling around her so my sincere request to the Team Flash is that please just limit the character of Iris being the love interest in Barry's life and side her character ASAP to the journalism that she does best otherwise you all are going to loose some true fans of the franchise!
