I actually liked the guy's performance just fine as Wally. I just felt bad for him because it was clear these writers aren't able to do anything with new characters once they finish being "mentored." Over and over again you see it happen on these shows. Then just onto someone new to train or mentor.

They should do a spin off... Wally as the Flash, maybe pick another Earth... or add him to the Titans.

After watching Part 5 of the crossover….I’m glad that Supergirl and Superman didn’t show up in this because they would’ve been wasted just as much as Black Lightning, Mia Queen and the other guest heroes. Nothing they did that the other Team Flash members couldn’t done…it was more like any normal episode of Flash than an actual crossover. Like what happened to BL? Did he just leave at the end of Part 3 with no explanation given as to why with Desperao still on the hunt? And Alex and Batwoman felt wasted too…pretty disappointing as a whole though I will say I did like how they used Damien Darhk in this. And Flash ended up beating Desperao on his own in the end which was great but yeah….just a waste of using this guest heroes in this one.

I haven't watched an entire episode of this show since Season 1, but I do read summaries occasionally.

And I think the fact that Barry's golden/yellow boots needed an "origin story", and furthermore that it took like ten years to get there, is THE dumbest f*cking thing ever. Like what the F*CK is going on with these people, man?

All this over-thinking nowadays. "We can't just GIVE him yellow boots in the pilot! They're too ICONIC! They need their OWN story, and we need to make people CARE about those boots! So that when he finally gets them, it's a BIG huge deal!"

No, you f*cking idiots, just give him yellow boots straight away because the character f*cking wears f*cking yellow f*cking boots. Don't overcomplicate such simple things with that kinda hokey horsesh*t. Jesus f*cking Christ.

Total waste of everyone, and the audience's time. And Damien Darhk was good in this... but it's mostly because of the actor's performance. Because it is a literal recycling of the Legends story where he sacrificed himself, wringing a little more emotion that years old story. "Evil rocks!" "Hey, don't you love your daughter?" "What? Oh yeah, I do. Nevermind about the evil stuff now."

Probably some really weird COVID worries/over-precautions on the production side mixed with the same awful writing of the past few years on Flash. This wasn't even an event, let alone a crossover one.

It was a lame moment where it suddenly went into slow-mo before he stomped on Despero in the finale. And then oddly every angle after that is such that you can't see the boots, so it's easy to miss.

I wonder if the yellow boots thing was only decided in post, and then digitally colored in. Wouldn't surprise me.

he was always supposed to "Earn" the yellow boots but the problem is they made it a Chester thing for him to build and give an exposition dump on how they would help stop despero and most fans just ignore what wish.com cisco has to say.

Wait, did Chester build them? If he did, I must have been looking down at my phone and not paying attention. I swear it looked like they suddenly turned yellow as the Flash was descending on Despero in slow motion.

Fun Fact Eric Wallace who is the **** showrunner of Flash was a writer for DC Comics he also was 1 of 4 creators of the comic version of Allegra aka AOC Lookalike

yes according to The Flash wiki

Here's how you fix the show:

* Blow up STAR Labs. Be done with it. They never fixed it or really ever reopened it anyway. Have a strong new villain do it.

* Lose the entire current Team Flash except Caitlin. Maybe as a result of the former. Turn them into villains or just be rid of them.

* Make Barry build his whole support structure back up from the ground. Have Iris be 100% supportive every step of the way, not nagging.

* Get back to Barry doing daily CSI stuff while slowly building towards legitimate threats at the end of a season.

* Give Iris and him a real arc. Not something where it is just her turning her back on him or telling him to stop being a superhero. Something real and relatable.

* Have Barry contending with threats outside of Central City. Freshen up the landscape. I'm tired of seeing him fight in front of the same 3 buildings or intersections for 40 episodes.

* Let's see some stakes again. Kill off some supporting cast. Maybe a bunch at once.

* Bring in Wally. Make him the lead supporting character and maybe even revolve whole episodes around just him.

* Apologize to that Elongated Man actor. Bring him in. And Sue regularly. That was the best thing they had going for them, so long as they allotted the budget to make them work.

This X100 Ralph was the best part of flash we loose Him and Sue and gain Allegra and Chester aka the most boring I don't care about anything they do type of side characters.
