That almost felt like a first-season episode, or an early season episode of Supergirl. Nobody was incredibly stupid. Feelings and positive emotions were key to solving the situation. Most people are in a better place than when they started.

So what are the odds that Singh is the mole? (I really hope they don't go there, but there are very few other named CCPD characters around.)

The mole has to be Singh or the unnamed(?) cop who hands Joe folders. There haven't been any other CCPD of note this season. I doubt it is Singh because they would have to kill him off if he's a bad guy who knows Barry is the Flash. Plus, he seems to be in this episode (was this his first appearance of the season?) to divert our attention away from the unnamed officer.

We may not know for a while as production was suspended before the finale was filmed.

Unnamed file-handing officer is the only other choice., but the payoff for that that has to be some character development which has been slow in coming (and may not actually come due to the shutdown).

I'm pretty sure Singh was in an earlier episode with Joe, but don't quote me on that. For whatever reason, I haven't really been paying close attention this season.

This is the first time Singh appears in this season, from what I remember and I just confirmed with IMDB (so I'm still only about 85% sure). I don't think they'd make him the bad guy though. I do buy that Sunshine is enough as an invisible spy to be the mole, which has a basis in what Singh said to Joe, that he has to be absolutely certain before distrusting CCPD. A corrupt police officer is too much of a trope at this point for the show to use.

A solid episode overall. I liked how emotionally mature they all were.

And to highlight how dangerous Eva aka Mirror Master is, her mirror clones still have all the capabilities and personality of their originals, such that !Iris was able to give Barry very good advice that helped him overcome Thawne.

My one sticking point is what is the deal with Thawne? I know I complained about him last episode, but I still don't understand how he can a doppelganger for the Wellses when he's just wearing a face, which he should've removed already, and not in an actual Wells body.

Cisco said something at the end about Exorcised-Thawne being a cloud of malevolent tachyons floating through space. Maybe that’s what he was beforehand too? A negative speed force wraith sort of thing?
