Warning! Spoilers below for the season 3 finale of The Flash!

Last week’s Flash was full of tears, as Barry (Grant Gustin), desperate to save Iris (Candice Patton) as the clock wound down, went back in time to get Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller) to help him steal an energy source from A.R.G.U.S. This energy was needed to fuel the “speedforce bazooka” that Tracy Brand (Anne Dudek) built, inspired by her muse and crush HR (Tom Cavanagh). After a harrowing reenactment of Jaws, they retrieved it and Barry and Snart said goodbye in a bittersweet moment for Captain Cold fans. The team went to Infantino Street to stop Savitar from killing Iris, but it didn’t work. Savitar ran Iris through and Barry held her body in his arms. Vibe (Carlos Valdes) and Killer Frost (Danielle Panabaker) faced off.

Last night on Supergirl, a musical was briefly mentioned as a suggestion for a movie from Mon-El to Kara (Chris Woods, Melissa Benoist). Then… at the end of the episode, an alien was brought in who spoke to Kara, “I’ve been looking for you.” He breaks out of his cuffs and whammies her with his eyes. She passes out and opens her eyes to a dream state where she is all dolled up and pushed onstage to sing.

Two weeks ago on The Flash, the meta of the day was one that Alchemy aka Julian (Tom Felton) had awakened. His touch had the ability to cause matter to disintegrate, and people to decompose to ash. That meta, Clive Yorkin (Matthew Kevin Anderson), went after cops that collared him in Flashpoint. He touched Iris (Candice Patton) to hurt Joe West (Jesse L. Martin). Barry (Grant Gustin) figured that out, so Cisco (Carlos Valdes) vibed there to find the next target. Yorkin caused a train full of people to be in danger, so Barry vibed the whole train safely through, leaving Kid Flash (Keiynan Lonsdale) to vibe (for the first time) through Yorkin with a neutralizer.

Last night, Barry Allen and Cisco Ramon (Grant Gustin, Carlos Valdes) stopped by Supergirl via wormhole to recruit Kara (Melissa Benoist) for a slight problem. The episode was good, but there was definitely not enough crossover – merely the last 2 minutes. Tonight’s episode of The Flash was the payoff as the gang was all here.

Last week on The Flash, Barry (Grant Gustin) was in family heaven… at first. His parents were alive and happy. There was another Flash running around, so he didn’t have to be the hero anymore. He still worked at the CCPD. He soon realized other things were awry. Joe West (Jesse L. Martin) was a drunk and unreliable, and didn’t like him. He didn’t even know Iris (Candice Patton), but he was confident he could get back into her life. Soon, Kid Flash (Keiynan Lonsdale), Iris, and Barry come out to each other because they need to team up. They go to Cisco (Carlos Valdes), the richest man in America. Barry kidnaps Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker), who is an opthamologist, to help (she does help a bit too). In the end, Barry decided to take Reverse Flash (whom he imprisoned) back to kill his mother and return him to his timeline. But even that had consequences.

Spoilers below for episode 3.2!

Last week on The Flash, Barry (Grant Gustin) was super optimistic, despite all the metas running around, including Black Siren (Katie Cassidy). She was screaming down buildings, one of which was Mercury Labs. They figured out a way to take them all down with sound, but also had to stop more building collapses. Cisco and Caitlin (Carlos Valdes and Danielle Panabaker) dressed up like their doppelgängers to distract her, and it worked. Cisco got an end of the world vibe. Zoom (Teddy Sears) showed up and killed Henry (John Wesley Shipp).

Last week we saw the best episode of The Flash ever, as our gang traveled to Earth-2, and we were as excited as Barry and Cisco (Grant Gustin and Carlos Valdes). There were so many little sights and clues that really brought this great series to the next level – Supergirl and the old Flash (John Wesley Shipp) whizzing by in the breach, Snart as mayor, Deadshot as a cop with horrible aim, and Earth-2 Joe (Jesse L. Martin) as a lounge singer, hating on Barry-2 for marrying his daughter. Barry steals his doppelganger in order to “be” him – Barry-2 is a super lab tech geek working for Detective West… Detective Iris West (Candice Patton). Caitlin and Ronnie (Danielle Panabaker and Robbie Amell) are in love on this earth too (2!), except they are villains Killer Frost and Death Storm working for Zoom, along with Reverb, Cisco’s smooth doppelganger. My Cisco is so much cooler though. Somehow, they escape unscathed (not Joe-2, Deathstorm, or Reverb), but Zoom steals Barry. I thought last week that the helmet guy knocking on the cage was Diggle-2, but I think I changed my mind. I’m not sure who he is.

Last week on The Flash, the new meta (nicknamed Turtle) just might be what they need to capture Zoom. He’s heisting all over, seeming to move fast, but only because he’s slowing everything else down – including Barry (Grant Gustin). Meanwhile, Barry seems like lame duck because he disappears in the middle of Patty (Shantel VanSanten) being in danger, only to save her as The Flash. She doesn’t understand what is going on with him. He is on the verge of telling all (thanks to Iris), but she tells him she’s going away to school. Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) tells Jay (Teddy Sears) she knows he is dying. Joe (Jesse L Martin) finds out about Wally’s (Keiynan Lonsdale) drag racing, and is the best dad ever in my eyes (anyway and always). Eobard Thawne (Matthew Letscher) is back!

Two weeks ago on The Flash, Grodd was back, using his mind to bend people to his will. His goal? To make more Grodds. He mind controls Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) but doesn’t want to hurt her. he remembers how kind she was. They get Earth-2 Wells (Tom Cavanagh) to pretend to be dead Wells, with Cisco’s (Carlos Valdes) help, whom Grodd saw as a father. Earth-2 Wells did have a real answer. There is a Grodd habitat on Earth-2, and they send him there. The other theme is father-son relationships. Barry (Grant Gustin) is having a lot of doubt in himself, so Iris (Candice Patton) calls in his real dad (John Wesley Shipp) for the sage Rocky speech that the first Wells used to do when Barry was doing Flash-y stuff.

Beware! Spoilers for “Legends of Today” below.

Last week on The Flash, Zoom (Tony Todd) was front and center, as Linda (Malese Jow) pretended to be Dr. Light as bait. They did some bad playacting to draw him out, but Zoom wasn’t fooled. He ended up hurting Barry (Grant Gustin) horribly, then dragging his limp body around Central City, showing everyone how their hero has fallen. Barry can’t feel his legs at the end of the episode.
