The Flash S7E9 Review – Bad Ideas
Gotta hand it to Iris and Barry. They take the approach of "Go Big or Go Home" when it comes to bad ideas. First, Iris really gotta stop calling the Speed Force 'Nora'. That's not Barry's mom. Clearly. Also, while we appreciate the optimism and desire to save people/things, not everyone can be saved. When the Speed Force not only admits to manipulating Barry to help her attempt to kill another Force but then flat out says "You're gonna help me kill more", that's not the time for "We can still save her".
On the flip side, Barry...time travel never goes well for you. Never. Don't even think about it.
That said, all the choices, even the dumb ones, line up with the characters and the story that's been building. The Flash is about family and making Barry & Iris the creators/parents of these new forces make sense. It also highlights how much not having a Flash Family anymore has affected them. Flashes don't run alone. And right now we're seeing more and more of the non-runner family slip away. Wells is gone. Frost is locked up. And it seems like Cisco is finally ready to leave Central City. Clearly the big theme this season is family and building the Flash family back up.
