A few thoughts to toss out there:

- Caitlin will probably be Killer Frost for a while now, if not for good
- I doubt HR is Savitar but why not another Earth's Barry Allen?
- Could be Savitar will "murder" Iris...but she isn't going to die (they'll find a way to trick Savitar into thinking he killed her); I just don't see this sunny and upbeat show going with killing her off
- Gypsy is gone for the rest of the season, maybe longer, now that she and Cisco are not happening
- it was nice that these two Detroit JLA'ers connected even briefly
- HR (in a stunning move) does not have a secret, dark agenda, it will turn out, he's just a hipster doofus

They seemed to be dropping clues over the season that HR might be Abra Kadabra.  That facial transmogrifier looked way too advanced for this Earth's present (and yes, it could be that HR's Earth-19 is more tech advanced than the Arrowverse Earth).   In keeping with the blinders-on Team Flash tradition no one ever stops to consider that 'HR' might actually be someone else using the transmogrifier with Wells' face instead of the other way around.**

Now they've had Abra show up in the flesh and mysteriously HR is absent for most of the episode.  They also make a point of mentioning that HR is now 'back'.  It doesn't seem like Tom Cavanagh was given a vacation week off, if you know what I mean.

Also, Gypsy has had epic mad-ons this season for both HR and Abra in two separate episodes, which is just weirdly coincidental.

So yeah, I think Team Flash is being punked by Savitar and Abra, with 'fake Wells' (Savitar's words) as a trojan horse. 


** I find way too much of the drama in the show relies on the sheer stupidity and thick-headedness of Team Flash.  I can understand Barry making amateur mistakes in the first season but they seem to get hoodwinked like this every season now.  It's starting to get a little dull and repetitive.

So help me, if HR turns out to be yet another evil Wells...and they don't find the real HR tied up in a closet or something afterward (meaning he was replaced by an imposter)....I hope they either:

1. Bring Harry back as a regular.

2. Somehow restore the real Harrison Wells to existence.

or 

3. Relegate Tom Cavanaugh to a recurring role, when he shows up as Harry.

Because the last thing we need is yet another different Wells from yet another different Earth. We need that almost as much as we need yet another evil speedster.....Oh, wait. WE DON'T! :p

If they go this direction with HR, how about doing something that would be really jarring to the cast, like bringing in an alternate version of Eddie Thawne as a replacement? (Or Hunter Zolomon, but since Teddy Sears is doing 24 Legacy, that's probably not an option.)

Oh, and my theory on Savitar: What if  his power is out of control without the armor, which regulates/controls them? (Can walk around without the suit, but he can't risk using his powers at all without it on.) Or possibly he's more or less like Wildfire from the Legion of Super-Heroes. Meaning maybe he's made up of some sort of energy and has to have the armor to survive.

Looks like the next episode of Flash, coming later this month, will push him further into the future and we see him with a disabled young guy-- maybe his own son? Could Savitar be Barry's own kid?

I had captioning on during the recaps shown in the last episode, and
Savitar's line is transcribed as "I am the future Flash", not "I am the
future, Flash."

Future Barry mentions that he created time remnants of himself that
were mostly killed off, so I think my previous Savitar theory is
correct:


 QUOTE:

Savitar knew a lot of personal information about Team Flash, and
perhaps that was just through his connection to Wally or Julian, but
along with the way that he said, "I am the future, Flash" as "I am the
Future Flash", I think he might possibly be Barry. Or more specifically, a
time remnant of Barry that got trapped in the Speed Force, went
insane, and resents Barry for living out the rest of his life while he got
left behind.


I think the writers learned from earlier in the season that no one likes
Angry Angsty Cisco, because his future self seemed level-headed even
as he was accusing Barry of abandoning them.

The time remnant gone insane theory is interesting. 

I just hope it doesn't turn out to be something stupid. Like Savitar turning out to be Ronnie Raymond, who somehow survived but gained different powers and went crazy. Or an evil Barry from an alternate Earth. Or an alternate Earth version of Eobard Thawne.
