Well, this was the first episode of the season that actually moved me, when it comes to Barry's possibly-impending death -- that bit where he was begging to hold baby Nora, and his "I got struck by lightning!" tirade to Speed Force Nora was some prime Grant Gustin.

Of course, I'm still baffled at the lack of onscreen discussion about Nora between Barry and Iris. And at Iris in general -- if she truly believed that there are two days left until Barry is gone forever, why is she spending any part of the day away from him? And why are they not trying to get pregnant ASAP?

Denial? From Iris' perspective, they've faced end-of-the-world scenarios before and survived, so why should she believe it's the end this time?

As for not getting pregnant, #1 it's probably too painful to think about Nora for a while, and #2 if the world actually is coming to an end next week, why bother?

I assume Iris got pregnant on their vacation, actually.
