Well, Flashpoint isn’t the only paradox this season. Our Big Bad became Savitar (Tobin Bell) because of something that happened in his past…something that his future self as Savitar did. That being said, the only thing that makes sense from this entire season is when Savitar said through Julian (Tom Felton) “I created myself.” Everything else, I’m just deeply confused by…and majorly disappointed about. It’s a sad day when I can say I liked something better on Arrow than I did on The Flash but the Prometheus (Josh Segarra) reveal genuinely shocked me. This just left me feeling…well, unfulfilled is one way to put it. Here’s what went down.
The episode begins with Barry (Grant Gustin) meeting Savitar on a street somewhere in Central City. He says the titular line and the title card flashes onscreen.
We flash back to the West House 16 hours earlier where Joe (Jesse L. Martin) and Cecile (Danielle Nicolet) are just coming back from a run. Cecile is training for the Central City Marathon and Joe tells her that he’ll be waiting for her at the finish line. Joe asks her if she’s mad about backing out and she tells him that she “loves [him] too much to be mad”. Realizing she just dropped the L-bomb, she begins to apologize when Joe gets a call from Barry, asking him to meet him at STAR Labs. Joe hangs up and tells Cecile that he has to go.
In the cortex, Barry is showing the team the info his future self gave him about Tracy Brand (Anne Dudek). A future Noble Prize winner and one of the top theoretical physicists in the world, she seems to be exactly the type of person who could trap Savitar in the Speed Force. Iris (Candice Patton) realizes that if she builds the trap four years in the future, she could be working on the prototype now. H.R. (Tom Cavanagh) suggests finding her and Cisco (Carlos Valdes) gets started on it. Julian wonders why they aren’t looking for Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker). Cisco gets super offended and wrecks him, reminding him that Barry and Wally (Keiynan Lonsdale)–who’s currently on Earth-3 visiting Jesse (Violett Beane)–have searched the city and he’s tried vibing her countless times and that they’re using every technological advantage they can think of to find her. Julian says that he just wants her back and Cisco tells him that he shouldn’t have turned her into a killer. Barry breaks up the fight just as Cisco gets a hit on Tracy’s location. She’s a grad student at Central City University. Barry, Cisco, and H.R. go to talk to her.
