I assume you think they were in France and not Canada? FYI, French is one of the official languages of Canada (the other is English), and the province of Quebec speaks French as its first language. Hence the French accent.

Thanks! I didn't see the preview. Ugh, I hope they don't go with Nick being the father, that's just too soap-opera-ish.

What's all this talk about Adalind being pregnant? Was that in a preview or something?

Jeff Fordham is a revolting, misogynistic, horrible human being. I hope his secretary sues him for abuse. I'm not convinced Teddy will sell his daughters out. He's made some ridiculous choices, but he's also always put his girls first. His character is only likeable because of that, and I hope they don't go with the obvious and cause that drama. I'd rather see him refuse to sign, sue Fordham for extortion and come clean. Also agree that Juliette and Avery were the most redeeming things about this episode. They're adorable! Beverly - ugh. She only cares about herself. I felt so bad for Deacon and Scarlett.

I'm with you. Maddie's the worst. She's rude, spoiled, entitled and disrespectful, and I can't stand her.

"Oh my gosh, the killer 'Red-John'd' Gabriel!!" My exact words when they found his body.

Great review! I have mixed feelings about the way that Roy and Felicity stood up to Oliver though. I totally understand their point, but I feel like Oliver deserves a little bit more from them. I mean, they keep flippantly bringing up the fact that he was "gone" and came back with expectations like he was nonchalant about the whole thing. The man wasn't on vacation, for crying out loud. It's not like he ran off to Fiji for a breather. Felicity reamed into him within minutes of his return without a second thought about what he might have endured to survive, and now both she and Roy are like "back off bro, it's not our fault you were impaled with a sword and thrown off a snowcapped mountain." Anyway - I totally broke when Quentin found out about Sarah and said "not again..."

Meh - it's an adaptation so canon can be played with. Besides, in the New 52, Barry doesn't marry Iris. And since they're going with the time-travelling Barry here (and probably the Flashpoint series to influence it), that's not an unlikely outcome. Also, Wally West is Iris' nephew and isn't genetically related to Barry.

Awesome, awesome review, Carissa. I loved this episode! I love the development that adult Barry was the one who was in that room. Was older Barry the one that saved younger Barry? (Time travel makes my head hurt). Now that we're getting more into the time travel part of it, I hope we get a few more glimpses into what Harrison Wells is about.
I thought it was interesting that Cisco decided to run the sample based on Wells' apparent decision that the two people in Firestorm needed to be sacrificed to save the city. Harrison, at that moment (from their perspective), was a man out of options, not a cold-blooded killer. I'm not sure if I like that Cisco was that easily swayed. I really like Barry and Linda. As for Iris...I've tried to like her. I've really tried. But I'm officially done with her. Oooh - also..."Flame On?!" Really guys? How "Marvelous". :-D
