So after the excellence of part one, they’ve fallen back into releasing
stupid gas in the writers room again.
It’s not as bad as it’s been before but it sure wasn’t as good as last
The city DA is preparing federal charges against Barry for leaking local
police information to a local crook. That one’s sort of hard to explain.
They not only mention kryptonians, Alex phones in a cameo and mentions that
Kara and John are off world.
Barry says to what’s basically the evil EPA guy from Ghostbusters re-star
labs “I’m Barry Allen and I own this facility” we’ve been waiting a long
time to hear that confirmed.
BLACK LIGHTENING! And the justice league super friends headquarters. We see
the chairs with the hero symbols on them but we only see one \S/. So we
still don’t know about Superman.
The long shot of the table shows eight chairs. We see a Flash chair. We see
a super chair. We see a chair with a green circle with a red X through it
that might be a MartianManhunter chair. We see a batteredwoman chair. We
see a black lightning chair. So there are three unaccounted for.
Here is the video clip when they first introduced the JL table:
The members that were there then were
SUPERMAN (has a chair)
BLACK LIGHTENING (has a chair)
STUPIDGIRL (no chair seen)
WHITE CANARY (no chair)
BATTEREDWOMAN (has a chair)
MARTIAN MANHUNTER (has a chair)
AWFUL ARROW (has a chair)
DA FLASH (has a chair)
So the same number of chairs are still there but they didn’t show us three
of them. A super, canary, and arrow.
The big news? As you may recall I mentioned that Joe was pointedly absent
last week. This week we are told that he died six months ago (and was
retired when he did). Reality is clearly shifting as the episode goes on.
Which may account for if not excuse some weirdness where they mention
things that are different than what the audience saw moments before.
The Meta jail in the bowels of star labs is definitely gone.
The really stupid? Barry is back to facing off his opponents standing there
talking and then racing towards them giving them time to stop him when they
can’t possibly be reacting that fast. The second or third time he does this
you think he’d come up with the frying pan to the back of the head routine.
Oh, the plot? Who cares.
