* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: In the comics, the Shade [[Comicbook/{{Starman}} eventually]] evolved into a complex and intriguing AntiVillain. Here, he's just a nameless {{mook}} for Dr. Alchemy who gets no lines and no character development whatsoever.


* TheReveal: The metahuman who killed the Rival for failing Alchemy is Savitar, the [[AGodAmI supposed God of Speed...]] and ''[[CurbStompBattle he's got the powers to back it up.]]''

* HopeSpot: Barry, backed up by Joe and the CCPD, captures Alchemy before he can give Wally powers... then Savitar shows up, and in the chaos, Wally grabs the Philosopher's Stone and is placed into some kind of chrysalis.

* WeaksauceWeakness: Shade gets defeated by... car headlights.

* AGodAmI: Savitar refers to himself as the "god of speed." Given the truly impressive speeds he can reach (to the point that he is effectively ''invisible'' to anyone but Barry (when '''''[[UpToEleven standing still]]''''') and causes a ground tremor upon arrival), it's hard to argue with him.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Foreshadowing}}: Joe rather blatantly makes a point about Julian not being present and how utterly out of character that is for him as they're gearing up to go after Alchemy.

Added DiffLines:

* ShipperOnDeck: The entirety of Team Flash is all for Joe and DA Cecile. Barry, Iris and Wally all push him to go on the date despite the crisis with Wally, with Iris and Barry stating they'll look after Wally, and to ensure he has no more excuse, Caitlin and Cisco, [[ThirdWheel and H.R.,]] agree to accompany him on the group date to relieve the tension.

Added DiffLines:

** There's also the fact that he spent much of last season hiding his own powers from the team, until Harry did the same thing he did to Caitlin and outed him.

Added DiffLines:

* NeckSnap: Shade's first victim is offed by strangulation. There was a very audible snapping sound.

Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicensePhysics: Shade can become like a LivingShadow, including flattening into the ground, through molecular vibration but the process is still somehow [[WeakenedByTheLight disrupted by intense light]].
