Dr. Harry Wells: I would ask you to talk Barry out of reopening the breaches to my Earth.
Joe West: [laughs] Ah, I can't do that.

Wow. Just wow.

I've been a fan of The Flash since the beginning and I can honestly say this episode is the first to cause me to do a literal jaw drop. I just had to leave a comment because it's amazing what this show has accomplished through the years by sticking to a solid storyline and only evolving into greater things. I can't wait to see what happens in these next final episodes of season 2 and by judging this episode, we're in for the ride of our lives. I also have to commend the writers and cast as a whole because character development is one of the most important pieces in any story and this episode was filled with it. It's refreshing to see how far the characters have come and only makes me excited to see where they're heading into the next episodes.
