This was the most fun I've had since S1 with this show. Hazard was hilarious, and I wish I had the capital to start producing breakup cubes, or some version that's different enough to not run afoul of CW lawyers. I had to pause the show to catch my breath after the whole sequence with Wells and poor Wally.

Also, I know I've been on about wanting Cowboy Wells or some other crazy new iteration of the character, but the truth is that it's nice to see Dick Wells and Cisco back together again.

Had Jesse’s hologram worked, we would have learned that the Earth-2 Breakup Cube comes preloaded with Miko’s breakup script.

Hahaha. I was picturing 'It's not you, it's the Speed Force.'

Not bad, but BREAKUP CUBE?! Ouch!

That was fun! But I'm a little disappointed that Wally is departing in such a "well, see ya" kind of way. I was wondering where he was during the mayhem; I care Wally, I care.

I must admit, I just love Cisco mocking Oliver's favourite line while playing laser tag.

I had to rewind to hear that again. I love that catchphrase. Absolutely love it. I'm waiting for a chance to use it in real life sometime. I should go to city council meetings and speak about corruption.

Oh, I'd love to hear something like that in an open council meeting.

So, they are responsible for turning Becky into a meta-human, she really can't control her powers, but they just lock her up ? Right.....

Of course they are. Barry is just a walking disaster.

This has nothing to do with the particular episode we're discussing, but I just had to share: Trickster and Joker kidnap Mark Hamill.

I had the same feeling. In the end, she didn't go back to robbing banks - she just kept gambling knowing she had super-luck and technically there is no law against that (and she didn't know it would eventually cause an explosion). In reality, she would have been thrown out of the casino long before the city was in danger.

No need to examine that samurai robot head, it can't be a camera or anything dangerous.
