Last week's episode features a vampire (I assume for Halloween) but that actually was a set up for our season's villain who manipulates blood due to the Dark Matter.
Strong scene I remember was Barry talking with the man about accepting death instead of fighting it.
We had 2 or more other stories going on in this really packed episode: Killer Frost coming to terms and living life to the fullest by celebrating her birthday in this episode, Ralph coming to terms with his mother over what happened to the past boyfriends, we had another Wells who is looking for Eternium.
Joe telling the new Wells to trust that his team will free them from a cave in tunnel. Cisco abandoning the Barry AI he made and trust in him. Bizarrely enough, there was a doppleganger Cisco from another Earth who can hack like him.
My only conflict was they killed off Gypsy. I do wonder if the actress couldn't make it. She had no spoken dialogue at all.
There is hope at the end of the tunnel. Wells has a solution to save Barry's life.
Caught up to Flash and watched the 3 part Infinite Crisis Crossover
The crossover - I was really confused and overwhelmed by how many characters and their stories. Black Lightning came out of nowhere in the last episode. I don't watch all the super hero and heroine shows.
For Flash, it's good. I like how Barry in his struggle against Ramsey's blood infection slowly taking him over and Barry's fears coming out, he did at first at the beginning of the series accepted his fate. Deep down, he really wanted to live and see his family. That was an emotional scene.
I was lost because I didn’t finish the crossover but I didn’t want to due to me falling asleep on the first few episodes.
This crossover really affected the Flash series.
There is only one Earth so no more alternative universes. Every show takes place on the same Earth. That is really bizarre but hey, seeing 2 different superheroes casually from different shows sounds awesome.
What happened to the season’s villain, blood something.
The cliche of being smart and logical makes you emotionless and heartless. The artificial speed force was designed not to use negative emotions, avoid Reverse Flash's incident with Nora, but instead made Barry's emotions gone.
We defeated our villain by talking. That's a big surprise. Though for those who crave action will be disappointed. I guess Eva is the most rational and emotionally stable compared to our past villains. Granted in episode 3, Barry hacked and expose Eva's secrets on live TV which made her go berserk in kidnapping everyone.
Had a problem: they brought the original Wells. Their reason is confusing. There was needed to be a balance when Nash and the other Wells were gone. For some reason, that balance brought back one Wells. If you are a person who knows mass cannot be created or destroyed, this show's science is all over the place. This Wells can travel through time without consequences.
Barry got his speed back. Like past seasons, this creates another unintended consequence.
Ep 4 I don't remember the "scientist who pretends to be a magician" at all. He tried to blow up the city with anti-matter because he remember pre crisis memories of a family. We had some ugly CG monster named Fuerza.
Ep 5 Psych - a new villain. The villain name is dumb. He causes people to feel fear. Barry was cocky since they face the impossible before. It took Cecile to save the day with the help of Thinker's chair.
Ep 6 We get Chester's backstory with him learning about his father as they were locked in the time loop back in the nineties. Meanwhile, Iris and Speed Force bond over Barry who is out of commission.
We learned there are Still Force, Strength Force, and Sage Force. It sounds corny.
Taka: It's a gigantic mech franchise. I haven't seen Macross myself. I know it's a big one.

Taka: I see. A global release will benefit it. Gundam did pretty good. The only few franchises that are only popular in Japan but not popular in the west - Yokai Watch comes to mind.

Master Menos: F for Respects. DMX did all his work while suffering from a drug addiction, and I almost never knew until a point. I hope his next life treats him far better.
