My favourite was "So long and thanks for all the fish." Cisco is the greatest.

You're right, that is true. Season 1 and 2 had great finales. This season's just left such a sour taste in my mouth.

I agree, it's definitely one of the best episodes they've delivered. It's right up there with "The Party" from last season, which was my favourite episode up till now.

I wondered about that! I knew it was a Flash helmet, but I was curious about why THAT was Eobard's cue to leave. I wonder how much it's going to play into next season.

Fantastic review, Carissa. You hit everything that made this great. This was such an amazing episode, and everyone delivered in spades, Eddie's sacrifice was so surprising and so intense - what a way to go, man. I thought one of the most interesting things about this episode was how they gave us a beautiful look into the mind and motivation of Eobard Thawne. Everything he had done in the past two decades was to get him back home, and he found himself caring about the people he had met along the way. I was captivated by seeing what his concept of love was. He truly believed that everything he had done for Cisco and Barry in the past year had shown that he had grown to love them, and it was amazing how disconnected his logical mind was from his heart. Thank you for the reassurance that Tom Cavanaugh will still be there next season. He's still my favourite thing about this show. Dear Arrow, this is how you do a season finale.
Sincerely, everyone who watches both shows.

Great review, Amanda! YES to EVERYTHING about Jonathan Jackson; my gosh, he was absolutely incredible. I rewound all his scenes several times. My guess is Beverly flat-lined. They may not kill her off though, because she'll be a great source of conflict next season. Can you imagine the guilt trip she's gonna run on all of them for her heroic sacrifice and near death? Gunnar and Scarlett - just get together already! Will - about time! Teddy - no one cares, sorry. Layla & Jeff - HOT mess. I don't even know what else to say about them.

There's really nothing I can say that hasn't already been said. On top of all of this though, the fact that RA'S AL FREAKIN' GHUL went down easier than Malcolm Merlyn in Season 1 AND Slade in Season 2 is really ridiculous. Oliver and Felicity COULD HAVE been a great couple, if they had continued writing Felicity the way they had in the first two seasons. I don't even recognize this mess of a character now.

"Didn't Ferris Air shut down?
Yeah, one of their test pilots disappeared."
HAL JOOOOORDAAAAAAAN!!!!! With all the Ferris Air hints they've been dropping recently, I sincerely hope Hal Jordan makes an appearance next season! Maybe they're building up to a Green Lantern series? Honestly, when Captain Cold walked into STAR Labs, I could not stop laughing.

This Juliette story reminds me of this quote from Avatar: The Last Airbender, when Zuko was talking about his insane sister: Zuko: I know what you're going to say. She's my sister, and I should be trying to get along with her.
Iroh: No, she's crazy, and she needs to go down. There is no redemption for Juliette at this point. She almost killed Monroe. She stood there and listened as the royal thugs killed Nick's mother. That whole "Thank God" think when she saw the kid alive does not make up for anything, I don't care if she has a complete change of heart. NOTHING Adalind did was this bad. Juliette is crazy, and she needs to go down.

This is exactly why I've made it a general rule not to watch promos. They're either deliberately misleading or they give away WAY too much!
