I know you do. That not going to stop me from sharing my thoughts. I tossed you a bone in the review and you still didn't see it. You assumed it's a bone. I don't want to like Iris. I just don't want her to be useless or unworthy of Barry. It's not my job to write her that way. Ah well. Be blind. As you must be if you think she wasn't a central character in this episode. It was her biggest episode to date. I'll also suggest you go read the other comments if you think this is some personal vendetta. I'm not alone in my thoughts about Iris. Others express their interest without a glimmer of hope.
I don't even know why I typed wife. Marriage on the mind! Fixed. :-) To tie back to Bash even more, Francis said he could not always be her husband first, which is the very thing Bash promised Mary when they were together. So sad. The maids were just really missing out, I suppose. They hadn't had men in a really long time to they hopped on each other in their excitement. Or, Narcisse paid them to do it. Bad, Narcisse. Bad!
Just making an observation.
They guy Oliver killed wasn't faceless, nor will any of the other people he goes on to kill be faceless. I'm not suggesting he would blatantly go against Amanda Waller. I'm saying Hong Kong is one of the most populated places on the planet. Oliver could have found a way to get things down without letting Amanda manipulate him. It's already been TWO YEARS of him fighting for his life, but in these scenes he still affects a petulant rich boy way of acting and talking. I don't buy it. Not at this point in the game.

I'm holding out hope for Linda Park to catch Barry's eye. There is zero chemistry between Barry and Iris. That's about three seasons away at best. They have to really work on her to make her worthy The Flash.
My opinion? She'll want a new dress that won't remind her of the misery attached to this first wedding. Since it was never worn, she could sell it and put the money into an account for another dress or use it for whatever she feels best.
At the expense of his own family, however many more people he winds up killing for Waller and who knows who else? Yeah. It's not that I didn't hear the threat, I didn't believe it should stop Oliver.
Barry and Felicity make sense, and they have true chemistry. Unfortunately, they'll never get their chance to shine. Overall it was definitely a switch-up from what we've seen so far, Barry opens, bad buy captured, a visit to dad, a dad-worthy moment with Joe, Wells takes us out. It means the show is progressing!
You should watch Arrow. It's a little darker, but not Gotham dark. The same team writes it, so you'll likely feel at home quickly. Plus, now you're a Felicity fan. You can't be a Felicity fan and not watch Arrow.
The bad guys got away in the theater (museum?) because he was unable to focus due to his inability to save one person. That's why he needs to toughen up. Stopping to mourn meant Cold got away. However, it's also confusing because we don't know if he's stopping for a nanosecond or if he's really stopping, you know? I decided that Cold allowed Barry to live because he considers him a fun plaything. He knows Barry's weaknesses and can continue to use them against him while still playing with the town and not killing a bunch of people. Remember, he told his crew at the onset that he didn't like killing, only if absolutely necessary. Of course, his ideas of necessary and mine may differ!
