Lord, I hope not.

So probably.

I mean, they've already had her write 4 hour training programs for her brother, so it's probably coming.

Wish they would use her already existing (and withering away?) journalist skills instead of drafting new ones on to her character.

Cicada is legit creepy and I'm glad they didn't hide his identity all season but man do I hope he's not an all season villian.

Cisco I've never wanted to punch you more than I have these two episodes, stop being a dick to your friends and actually do your damn job.

Byillegally using her husband's computer so he might get fired?

Or thefact that she's jealous of her own daughter for having Barry's attention

I like how Papa Joe is all chill....he got this

I love how XS gave her that look when Iris was celebrating finding the villain, she's like "no ones all impressed by you woman"

I know there's an episode about it later in the season but I honestly thought Crisco was going to bite the dust.

Nothing but love for Caitlyn & Ralph was great, glad he is still there but still no Wells even though he's in the credits

Next episode. A Wells, anyway. And another fake out, killing Crisco. I mean, we ought to bring a class action suit to force them to kill Iris for real like they promised, and Crisco too...

Though maybe they only bring back an Elseworlds version of Crisco for an episode and really kill the main character off?!?

Seems more like she's jealous that BARRY is being given all of NORA's attention.

"She wants to do big for the sake of big." Now, what comic writers does THIS remind me of?
"She doesn't listen!" Now, what comic higher-ups does THIS remind me of?

Also:
-Never felt the tension about Camille losing her powers. They were played mostly for laughs since she got them, and wanting to be the perfect parent felt weak.
-Yes, keep Nora from going splat in the Jell-o block, but DON'T YOU DARE run back and try catching the villain after that. It may take her twenty times as long to start that van and drive off than it would for either of them to run up behind her at super-speed and conk her on the head, but...y'know...just rush back to STAR Labs like you ALWAYS do. Ugh.
-Cisco down in the dumps is not very fun.
-[From last week's episode] "My Dad's been dead for years." First sign he was alive.
-Nora being from a future with oodles of fancy tech does not excuse her being incompetent as a CSI. I feel like she'd have to learn about some of the stuff from before her time while going to school. And the whole "you don't have this fancy future tech here in the past" is a gag that runs *RIMSHOT* the risk of getting old...in a flash *DOUBLE RIMSHOT*
-Does...does Iris actually work for a news outlet anymore? Is she doing the "independent blogger journalism" thing? I honestly can't remember if she lost her job at the paper or not.

What if they kill Cisco...and the new Wells is an exact double of him?

Just so we are all on the same page here, Iris knows that Nora never had the opportunity to get to know her father...right? Like, that was part of the whole "Barry never comes back" thing at the beginning of the episode. So it's only logical that Nora would want to spend time with and get to know the parent that didn't raise her...right?

But no, you're right, why doesn't she want to spend time with you, Iris?!

Fuck! Are they even trying to make her likable anymore?!
