When does Valentine’s Day ever go as planned in Central City? This one was no different. Even the villains were not having a great holiday.
It’s one thing for a romantic dinner to get ruined, as it always does, but it was fun to watch Goldface (Damion Poitier) and Amunet (Katee Sackhoff) fight over their breakup. Even villains can have their broken hearts. It’s just a little scarier when they work through their issues.
It was a little weird at first to see Frost (Danielle Panabaker) so excited about her first Valentine’s Day. She is certainly living life to the fullest. But other than putting cute heart decorations up, what is there for single people to celebrate? When you were kids, you got little valentines from all your friends, but that’s not a thing as an adult.
We did get to learn more about Allegra (Kayla Compton). And the dynamic between Frost and her is pretty cool. It looks like Nash (Tom Cavanagh) had a daughter on his Earth that looked exactly like her. It seems that the Harrisons always find someone on Earth One that looks like someone they knew on their Earth.
But is Nash the only Wells on this new Prime Earth? We got a glimpse at another one at the end. Which Wells was it? As we’ve seen from Supergirl, sometimes there can be more than one of a person.
The writers waited for the entire episode to tell us what happened to Iris (Candice Patton) last week. I was almost convinced that Iris was okay, and maybe she had just grown. She did a great job of convincing Barry (Grant Gustin).
She sold it when she said she had to create a life without him. But no matter how much Iris has grown, would she ever let innocents die or hurt a random person, even to play a role? The answer is no. It doesn’t matter that the other red flags were she made great pancakes since Iris could change that, or that she could suddenly speak Italian. Iris would never intentionally let someone get hurt.
I did like seeing Iris being more of a team with Barry in the field. When we get the real Iris back, the writers should do this more often.
