Okay, so I watched the finale, and admit, even after your overt warning for it, I still completely missed the TNG easter egg. As a lot of the seasons on these shows are winding down, maybe we should offer some recaps/thoughts. Keeping in spoiler tag for now, Spoiler Ha, well I am pretty glad that Zoom finally had his comeuppance. Overall I thought this entire season was much weaker than the last, and the story arc faltered at so many points, if I was just a casual viewer I could see a lot of people tuning out. After building Zoom up so much to be this ultimate big bad, I think they bit themselves in the foot by then realising they needed to somehow also give him a weakness to allow Flash to take him down. As I already hinted, I did not like the fGarrick reveal, and I think from then on he became too unbelievable as a real menace, and only succeeded due to whatever gimmick of the week. Ultimately, I think the writers completely lost track of where they wanted to story to go. They seemed so torn between metahuman of the week, Zoom's season long menace, and whatever personal drama they kept throwing at the show, that they could never decide what to focus on, and as a result if all suffered. I also don't think I saw Flash (or the others) act as stupidly before, and go against their characterisations, all just to develop some plot conveniences. In fact, there was so much contrived stuff, just to throw some barriers in Flash's way [which, to be fair, they kind of have to do to not make him so OP'ed, but again, that was another problem I had with the season, really blowing up the amount of things he could do.] It was all really falling apart by the time they wrapped it up. Too many things that strained even the credibility that they had built up internally in the show, as trying to throw too many little things all into one season, without thought of how they were going to let it play out long term. I think that was the biggest issue. And the entire finale basically coming down to Zoom challenging Flash to a race to see who was the fastest was pretty much a summation of the exact lameness that the season turned into. But anyways. What else? I am not sure I wanted to see Wally take up the speedforce, despite them kind of hinting at it non-stop. I think having him in the show is cool, and works as a nice nod to the fans, but don't think they necessarily need to already work in the next Flash mythos, when Barry is still just discovering his powers. Having Barry's dad/doppleganger be the first Flash was something interesting, I kind of saw it coming, and definitely call Jay being the one in the mask, but making him still be hero and continue on as Flash in Earth-2 felt a bit heavy-handed and unlikely (for me). I wonder if this is - now- the actual final departure of Tom Cavanagh from the show. He did bring a fair bit to the cast IMO. So anyhow, I could keep going, but don't want to rant off too much. I thought the season was just okay. All in all, I was really disappointed I think mainly because S1 was just so good, and I think they could have focused the story and developed some believable plots more, but what can you do. I really hope they bring it back for S3. I would like the writers to show confidence in building a strong story, give their viewers a bit more credit, and nail down some real plans for how the show and characters will develop over multi-season arcs.
