Captain Singh is back. *Shrugs*

In general, this episode offered up a solid dose of drama. Cisco's arc in particular was moving, as we've rarely seen him in such a depressed, morose state.

Wonderful and full of emotion.

Did a solid job of addressing many of the lingering questions from the season premiere.

Can we have less narratives of heroes desiring normalcy and more heroes enjoying their powers?

While "Flashpoint" only lasted one episode, the divided Team Flash thankfully only lasted one episode as well.
