So, have now seen the start of the Invasion.
I'd like to say it makes more sense now, but they seem to have chopped it into three different types of story, of stages, or something. It's a mind boggling jam packed rush even from the start.( Read more... )
They packed so much in the only bit I managed to properly care about was the Wally story. I don't get why Iris is on team lie to him though, you'd think someone on this show would learn. Well, Cisco has, but still. Ugh.
Yaay Kid Flash, and please to be telling him reasonable reasons, like he needs training and experience that are not dreams.
The appearance of the newspaper though... if they can even check that, what has happened to their Gideon, how much future knowledge is in there, and what reason other than temporal can of worms do they have to not use it for research? Even focused so it won't tell them tomorrow, what is it they're ignoring? More than just a page.
The change was good.
But it still mentions Reverse Flash, and I want to see if/when *that* changes.
Like, Reverse Flash was obsessed with that page for a reason. Top of my list of theories? It's his own personal future, a headline he hasn't participated in yet, so keeping that on track means he has a tomorrow.
Second is he knows the significance of the red skies.
Reverse Flash being undone should screw up that day along with all the rest. Grandfather paradox is a problem, not a solution.
... I am focused on the wrong bits.
Alien Invasion setup achieved. Now to wait for Arrow so I can see the middle...
... and in the meantime, watch more Flash.
