    Nice!!!!!

    I thought last week's was OK, but this one was much better. It really was a Firestorm episode more than the Flash. The characters were good, the plot moved along nicely.

    I really liked how the quantum stabilizer suddenly made Firestorm look like... Firestorm. I didn't pick up on that last week, but when he put it on and merged, one of the primary designs of his costume became very evident.

    Professor Stein's voice in his head was simple and effective. The merging/splitting was a nice effect. And, of course, he looks way cool when he's all fiery.

    His suit is toast now. I wonder if they'll just pull out another identical one or alter it?

    And Wells is turning out to be a nice surprise. I can't wait until next week to see what else is revealed. We know he has a yellow suit, we know he's capable of killing (though the two times we know for a fact he's done it, it was bad guys), but at the same time, it's also strongly implied he didn't kill Barry's mom. He's a fun character!

    It'd be great to see more of Firestorm. I hope they bring him back at some point, but introduce him learning the transmutation powers he's supposed to have.

    I won't bring up what the previews for next week showed (since even with a spoiler tag, it's frowned upon), but I can't wait! I'm really liking this show.

    I didn't think I would but I like this more than Arrow.

    I'm leaning toward Wells being a bad guy, but I've been wrong about this stuff pretty often.

    Why did Wells rat out Stein?

    I'm wondering that, too.

    I was amused by how Stein kept popping out of Ronnie wearing his own clothes and glasses.

    My guess he was protecting Barry. The General figured out the Flash's identity and told Wells as much. Wells turned over Stein keep the General from going after Barry (most likely). Or to buy himself more time to figure out a way to deal with the General. He did, he turned him over to Grodd at the end. The General didn't make any direct threats but they were implied.

    The General knows the Flash's identity but Grodd will most likely keep him from telling anyone else.:)

    You'll have to wait more than a week. Flash is on hiatus until March 17.

    I was surprised that Stein's wife knows that Barry is Flash.

    Bad guy or pro Meta-human? I am seeing him as a Dr. Strange type or Magneto type.

    I was thinking the same thing watching this episode. Even when in his costume, he spends more time with his cowl off than he does with it on.

    Yeah That's an apt description.
    Pro-meta human to the point of being anti "normal" people.

    Especially when you consider that in the comics, Clarissa Stein
    sold out Martin Stein.
    I don't think they're going to go that way here but you never know.

    And I knew that Barry unmasking in front of Plastique like that was going to cause trouble as I knew that Eiling saw.

    Still, I liked the episode a lot.
    They did a good job with the Firestorm story and have the option of bringing him back.
    (Or he could travel to Starling City.)
