I enjoyed the hell out of Amunet and her love life with Goldface. They made fighting over records hot. And kinda adorable. Also love the title/use of song. And a "Rappacini's Daughter" reference! And the burned plant and telepath love.

I also have to say that I really like Mirror Iris. She seems much more together than the usual Iris, and badass. New and improved and I don't just mean in cooking and language skills.

Barry's face at various points, and him and Mirror Iris's reactions to Amunet/Goldface sex, was great.

Frost as some kind of therapist odd tack for her to take.

I do want to get an Alice on Flash crossover now which would have to be Through the Looking Glass. The Eva McCulloch take on MM (abbr. because possible spoiler) should be interesting. I am wondering if she is impersonating Iris or if mirror-Iris is a construct under her influence/control.

i was also confused as to how mirror-Iris functions, since she seems to have the memories of real Iris. Is she Eva herself? Or some alt-universe thing?

Amunet and Goldface was great. I enjoyed everything about their relationship.

So Allegra is Nash's daughter? What?

Well, the Allegra-Nash father daughter connection is one I suspected. Or if she isn't what's left of Nash's daughter after Earth-Priming (or whatever we're calling the Crisis mishmash), she'll be the daughter of a different (now non-existent) Wells.

You're absolutely right, jenfullmoon, about Mirror Iris being so much more put-together and competent. I mean, it was obvious to us as viewers that she isn't the real Iris, but boy would I like to see Iris learn from this experience and emulate her doppelganger. This one is much more interesting to watch.

The squabbling love villains brought some fun and lightheartedness to the show--something The Flash has been missing for a while.

speaking of the focus on Iris, I have liked her more this season, and I think this is why: The Flash Finally Let Iris West Be Black
