BARRY FIGHTS FOR IRIS - Barry (Grant Gustin) is tormented by his vision of the future where Iris (Candice Patton) is murdered by Savitar. When a criminal named Plunder (guest star Stephen Huszar) shows up in Central City, Barry recalls the villain's presence in his vision of the future and fears that if he catches Plunder, it will cement Iris' fate. Confused about Barry's hesitation to stop Plunder, Wally (Keiynan Lonsdale) decides to step in as Kid Flash. Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) offers Julian (Tom Felton) a job. Millicent Shelton directed the episode written by Grainne Godfree & David Kob (#310). Original airdate 1/24/2017.

Wow, 15 hours after this airs and The Legends episode actually got more comments.

It was a good return after the break, but I think this Flashpoint story arc has made the show feel a little convoluted at times.

I enjoyed seeing Kid Flash in action, but Plunder wasn't the most exciting villain of the week.

The interesting thing I thought was Team Flash working together to pick up on clues on how to change all those events from 4 months from now from happening. Especially now knowing that Killer Frost will make a return (at least in the headlines) along with Grodd. HR appearing in the vision was also interesting. But, he didn't do shit though.

So it looks like Iris' death occurs on May 23rd, which is a Tuesday and probably the season finale date as well.

Not really keen about Julian joining the team. Team Flash already feels kind of crowded like Team Arrow.

I'll be surprised if he makes it (one way or another) past the end of the season.

They are inching ever closer to Central City getting a proper Flash museum.

It was a throwaway line but why would Flash need a month to unpack his apartment? That is sheer laziness, Barry.

They wouldn't write Iris off the show, would they?!

Are we sure that wasn't the Earth-2 Wells?

Good thought. We won't know for sure until May 23rd I presume.

Another solid episode. I know Barry doesn't want Iris to die but screwing up the timeline won't help. It makes me wonder if in changing the timeline to save Iris they'll end up killing another character, namely Joe.

Turtles need more space than that to live in.

I think they kill this Wells and reset next year with a new one. It could be a running joke. A new Wells each year getting killed off like Kenny from South Park.

How do we know it was HR who appeared in the future?

H.R. is growing on me. I liked him in this episode.

Great episode. I loved the Kid Flash stuff... coming out to the world. Pretty cool. Plunder was pretty weak and underdeveloped though.

So to start this season everyone was pissed off because Barry changed the timeline to save his mom. Now they're all just hopping on board with changing the timeline to save Iris? Bunch fucking hypocrites.

Also, after Kid Flash saved the day/changed the timeline, why didn't Barry check the paper in Wells hidden room again to see if they accomplished anything?

It's a little different changing something that hasn't happened yet and originally wasn't suppose to happen to start with, versus changing something from over a decade ago that is suppose to be set in stone.

Can they please get rid of this version of Wells. Even his hair is getting more ridiculous. AT least the headlines lead on that we will be getting some better episodes soon, including Grodd.

I don't mind Wally/Kid Flash but he looks ridiculous in the costume.

I do find it funny when Wally comes to a stop, it looks like he's about to fall on his face. Its like the actor runs to his spot and can't stop.

This is just a wild guess but I'll speculate that Wally sacrifices himself to save Iris at the end of the season. He then gets lost in the Speed Force, making next season The Flash: The Search For Wally.

If Wally gets lost forever I'd be happy.

I know that the Flash was hesitating about taking down Plunder, but it was kind of nice to see him having issues with a non-speedster villain for a change.
