When Magenta tries to kill Julian (Tom Felton's character), Barry saves him by grabbing him and pulling him out of the way. This is shown in slow motion and Julian is seen moving his feet and stepping along the floor with Barry. Julian is not a speedster, so his brain would barely be able to register what was happening in that split second (because of how fast Barry runs), let alone him being able to know that he needs to move his feet, and on top of that there is no way he would be able to move his legs that fast.

Dr. Harry Wells: Who's Alchemy?
Cisco Ramon: Well, Doctor Alchemy is a magic man in a cloak who can somehow restore the powers that people had in Flashpoint.
Jesse Wells: Okay, what's Flashpoint?
Caitlin Snow: That's what we're calling the alternate timeline that Barry created when he went back in time and saved his mom.
Dr. Harry Wells: Oh. So Magenta is another side-effect from your time trip. Genius. Not.
Barry Allen: I don't need to be reminded. Thank you.

Harry and Jesse are Back!
19 October 2016 | by ArjunTheReviewerSee all my reviews

The Flash Season 3 continues its streak of good episode with an episode which was a filler episode, but it still worked out! Harrison Wells and Jesse have returned to Earth 1 to run some tests on Jesse who was affected by the dark matter experiment that happened in the episode Rupture. Jesse is a speedster and wants to use her powers, but Harrison thinks she should slow down. The villain of the week is Magenta, a metahuman possessed by Dr. Alchemy who can control metal. She lives in a foster family where her dad abuses her, and she takes her powers out on him. Magenta was a great villain that felt different from the other metas of the week due to the sympathy that can be felt for her. Also, the special effects and action scenes continue to be great. My main issue with this episode is Wally. I found it dumb that he gets annoyed easily because of Jesse being a speedster, and he wants to be one too (really Wally!). Despite this, this episode had a great meta of the week and a new speedster which makes it a good one. Grade: 8.4/10
