Ok so in The Flash, why the hell does Eobard Thorne still exist? I never even realised this but season 1's resolution was that Eddie died so that Eobard never existed, which is why he then disappeared. So why does he still exist? Why did Barry's mother still get killed by him? How does anything make even the slightest bit of sense?

So....

When Flash went back in time at the end of season 2 to save his mother, he pulled that Eobard back to the new future with him. This is why he's still alive in the flashpoint episode. Then he lets him go to finish killing his mother because he wanted to try to reset the timeline to what it was. Essentially there became two Thawns, the one they killed at the end of season 1, and then the alternate timeline one that got pulled to the future and then released back to the past, which is why there is still one alive.


TLDR: Cuz time travel.
No, I mean why by the start of season 2 was there still an Eobard Thawne in the past to go back and stop at all? Eddie died without reproducing, and therefore Eobard should never have existed in the first place. Therefore Barry's mother should never have been killed in the first place.

This show sucks at time travel.

This.  The show makes no sense.

But I still like it lol
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

Pretty good ep of Gotham last night. Without giving away too many spoilers, it was nice to somewhat close the Tompkins storyline. I thought it was well done. Glad it looks like the whole Nigma-Penguin thing is done. I did not like that angle whatsoever. Also saw the post-episode teaser for the next episode in January. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. That dude has the look down for sure.  ;)
This Samsära guy doesn't post too much, but he's pretty much always right.  :tup

I'll just say that I don't normally watch Supergirl, but I watched last night's episode precisely because it was supposed to be part one of this crossover.

The actual crossover part was about 2 minutes long, and didn't occur until 55 minutes into the episode.  Yeah, I know, there were multiple portal appearances throughout the show, but that doesn't really count.

I was reminded again of why I don't watch that show.

It's a great show, I think. Yes, it's barely connected to the arrowverse, but that's okay.

Watching the episode now, luckily I already pieced together that the cross over doesn't really happen till the very end so I won't be disappointed.


Although the "I'm cyborg superman" thing was horribly dumb. What a weird direction to go with that.

Watched a lesbian girl react to the episode. She was bawling her eyes out after every 'Sanvers' scene and 'explaining' how much this show meant to her, then screaming in rage at the screen whenever something like, STORY started to intervene. Like when Mon-El was fighting for his life, she was yelling: 'No one cares about you!!' I don't mean to start a flame war, but what the actual fuck?? Is this show become all about the Lesbian cause now?  :yeahright

No? Your friend just seems like a weird person to watch this stuff with.

Unless Mon-El and Kara kissing means the show is all about the heterosexual cause now.

The episode of The Flash was much better, although imagine my raging when the 2 minute "crossover scene" from Supergirl was replayed during this episode, meaning watching that hour really WAS a waste of my time.

I'm digging Supergirl. I'd still put it on a par with The Flash, below Arrow but better than Legends.

It may be good, I just don't like the very idea of the character and never have.

Oh, and what is with a character calling himself Cyborg Superman and looking nothing like Superman, or having Superman's powers?  I know the character from the comics, and that isn't him.

Not sure why they felt the need to change the stories of J'onn J'onz and Hank Henshaw that way.  Seems weird and unnecessary.

Never read the comics, so fair enough but I'm just watching the show as is. We're also a couple of weeks behind in the UK, but yeah some of the villains and plots are a little silly sometimes, but that's the case with the whole Arrowverse (Flash a similar amount to Supergirl, and Legends is basically non-stop nonsense :lol ).

I only made it three episodes into the first season with Legends.  What a preposterous title.

So I watched the Supergirl, Flash and Arrow episodes of the crossover. While Supergirl's was pointless (only in so much as it relates to the crossover) the rest of the episodes have been great. The Flash in particular was great, and the episode of Arrow was by far the best since season 3, even if it the "return" of Deathstroke was a major letdown.

Currently watching the Legend's episode of it and it's good so far. Felicity and Sisko are great in it. Felicity yelling "Darmok and Jalad at Tanagra!" was a really fantastic reference that I assume most people will miss.

I will say that Flash and Arrow's episode should have been double in length. I'll probably feel the same about this one.

And the "She kind of looks like my cousin" line was really great.

Oh I got it.  The Legends episode had a nice conclusion.   It was fun to watch.

question about the Supergirl episode: if her father created the Medusa virus on Krypton to affect any non-kryptonian alien, then why were humans not being affected by the virus?  Did they explain that and I just missed it?

Yes, another of the multiple problems with that show.

I finished out the crossover shows.  It was quite enjoyable, and apparently the ratings were through the roof, so it (or some version of it) is sure to happen again (shocker).

I think I'm going to finish up this third series of the Flash and unless it shows improvement part ways with it.   The show was never grade A material, but the first series was a lot of fun, but now I'm just finding it a chore - why does every character have to have powers?  And then there is the relationships..... And do we really need a speed villain every series and a different version of Harrison Wells (I loathe the current HR version).

Up the plus side Leagues of Tomorrow has stepped up it's game from it's first iffy season, I'm actually really enjoying it at the minute.

Oh yeah, but at least it's fun.  The Flash is just so full of annoying cliche character romances at the minute (Barry, Iris.  Catlyn, Julian.  Wally, Jessie.  Joe, Cop Girlfriend).   50% of every episode is full of crappy relationship issues conversations, oh yeah and there is the threat of
an up and coming musical episode  :facepalm:

I'm with you.  Right now it feels like an obligation to catch it every week, which is not the way watching a TV show should feel.

I've already given up on Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow, and never got into Supergirl.

Legends has been quite a lot of fun the past couple of episodes.

Flash is starting to bog down a bit.  Lots of fast forwarding through all the boring stuff lately.

Losing the boring Hawks was the best thing the show could do.   

Anyone feel with the amount of dialog quipping and nerding out in this show right now, it feels very old school Joss Whedon.
