Paradox Review

I'm glad Barry explained to everyone how he messed with the timeline. Half a season of him awkwardly trying to fix things would have been painful. I think there is an interesting question of what gets a do-over. I mean, theoretically, Barry could time jump every time a villain appears and stop them from hurting anybody in the first place. I do wonder what earlier current timeline Barry's justification for not helping Dante was. It's definitely not cool to use that power for himself and not his friends.

Does anyone else know Caitlin is a metahuman? The impression I got is that nobody knows, but pre-jump Barry might have. Is this how they're going to factor in her mother appearing? It will be nice to meet her family, since we've already met everyone else's. My guess is everyone will find out in episode seven, since that's titled Killer Frost. However, I forget which episode her mom is appearing in. I want to say next week.

Obvious question of the week: what is Dr. Alchemy preparing the Earth for? My guess is the invasion crossover storyline. However, most of these villains tend to get resolved at the end of the season, not the midpoint. My guess is that he's building an army of metahumans to fight... something. Hopefully something cool and interesting.

I have to admit, when I saw that husk, my brain immediately jumped to Supernatural. If you're not familiar with that show, one of the types of monsters is shapeshifters. When they shift, they peel off their skin. I figured they wouldn't copy the other show outright (even if it is on the same network), but it's the first thing I thought of.

Can we please stop it with the all the speedsters? Three out of four season villains (unless you count Captain Cold) have been speedsters. Most of the good guy metahumans have been speedsters as well. Almost all the non-speedster good metahumans are on Legends of Tomorrow (which now has Reverse-Flash). Though, to be fair, I'm not sure what I was expecting from a show called "The Flash."

Also, I totally don't remember the photo below actually happening in the episode. Did the scene get cut or am I just an idiot?
