Today, The Flash is back!
So is the rest of the crew, and while this week focused largely on the relationships between existing characters, that doesn't mean there was no room for new faces and new material to make their way in, and for a few in-jokes to pepper the way.
Check 'em out.
So, as ever, what did we see? What did we miss? Read on, and comment below.
Turtle Man, the successor to the Golden Age (Jay Garrick) villain The Turtle, fancied himself the Slowest Man in the World, and created a weapon that he could use to put The Flash into stasis, causing him to hallucinate.
This is kind of the natural extension of the Cold Gun from the TV show, although stasis is obviously a little bit different.
What do you think -- you want to see a chubby guy with a big shell on his back?
They didn't quite take this villain to the "next level," as we had hoped, but hey! There's always bringing in a successor.
We get nods to both Moby-Dick (with the "white whale" metaphors) and Don Quixote ("Cisco de la Mancha or whatever it was they said) in reference to Cisco's fanatical search for the Turtle.
Those stolen-and-returned diamonds?
Well, given that Supergirl and The Flash share showrunners, it seems like it would be an awful big coincidence if they just picked "Vandervoort" out of a hat in the same month it was announced Smallville's Supergirl Laura Vandervoort would be playing Brainiac-8 on Supergirl soon.
30-SOMETHING, METAHUMAN, NOT-A-NINJA TURTLE
Yes, that's a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles joke.
In a show where Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of The Shadows actor Stephen Amell has appeared in a number of episodes.
You have to wonder whether anybody ever notices how much Casey Jones looks like Oliver Queen.
The "Crystal Ball" painting was recently recovered from Markovia...a locale we've heard referenced a few times before.
In Arrow, Dr. Brion Markov was a scientist who developed the Markov Device, which has the power to cause an earthquake. Malcolm Merlyn used the Markov Device as part of The Undertaking, then killed Markov and his colleagues.
In the comics, though, Markov is Geo-Force, a superhero with geo-kinesis abilities that was also prince of Markovia.
The owner of the painting may have been named after a hockey player.
Jakob Erik Silfverberg is a Swedish professional ice hockey right winger currently playing for the Anaheim Ducks of the National Hockey League.
MIDWAY CITY UNIVERSITY
Midway City, where Patty intends to go to college, is the fictional home city of Hawkman, the Doom Patrol and others.
It's previously been established that Caitlin had a "cousin" there, although that might have been a cover for when Firestorm was on the run.
Midway City is a setting in the upcoming Suicide Squad movie.
Wally is from Keystone City, Central City's twin...which is where Golden Age Flash came from in the comics (as well as Wally).
Previously, The Flash has established that Eobard Thawne is from Keystone as well. Could that be where he popped out at the end of the episode?
