** Considering how Iris dying threatened to upend the show's cheerful mood, H.R. sacrificing himself in her place did a lot to pacify fans. It helps that the flashback that explains how the switch happened actually makes sense given the time table of "Infantino Street".


* InternetBackdraft:
** Killer Frost refusing to take the cure saying that Caitlin is no more, even though there were hints that Caitlin is still in there.
** The Speed Force forcing Barry to take Savitar's place in the Speed Force prison as atonement for Flashpoint, even though Barry literally spent the entire season atoning for his mistake and the fact that Wally is still too inexperienced to take up the Flash mantle.


* BadassDecay: The Black Flash. As Zoom, he is the previous season's BigBad. As the Black Flash, he had Eobard Thawne, the original BigBad, scared shitless of him throughout ''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow'' Season 2. This episode has him defeated by a single ice blast and barely even make an impact on the episode at all.
* CatharsisFactor: Despite being firmly a TragicVillain, Savitar's final defeat by Barry and then ultimately Iris--the one who he was destined to kill--is ''immensely'' satisfying, mostly due to the large amount of weight that was put on her death throughout the second half of the season.
* SugarWiki/HeReallyCanAct: To all those who are still arguing what is the greatest love story in the Series/{{Arrowverse}}, Creator/GrantGustin and Creator/CandicePatton make a strong case for [[SuperCouple Barry and Iris]] this episode, showcasing their amazing chemistry, and crowning it with a BittersweetEnding showing off their individual talents as well.

** Black Flash apparently being destroyed seems a bit too good to be true.

** Black Flash apparently being destroyed seems a bit too good to be true. WordOfGod says that yes he is indeed still alive.


** The Speed Force: was it really collapsing in on itself at the end in Savitar's absence, or was it throwing a fit over Barry finally being truly happy since creating Flashpoint months ago? It doesn't help that it was established beforehand that the Speed Force isn't as lenient to Barry as we initially thought, ''and'' that Barry actually sees imprisoning himself inside to qualm its rage as his way to atone.
** Also, Savitar. Specifically, it's unclear whether he was really considering Barry's offer at redemption (only [[RedemptionRejection deciding against it]] when he realized he'd never have a place with Team Flash) or if he was planning on betraying Team Flash all along.

** Having Barry, Jay, Wally, and Jesse all team up against Savitar would've been quite a spectacle. Well, the first three are there... but Jesse was left out for reasons unexplained.

* MisaimedFandom: This episode saw Savitar earn a good number of fans who conveniently leave out the fact he was basically a malevolent speedster who made himself a false god, sought to corrupt the Multiverse with his presence, tried to kill his wifee purely so he could force his past self to become dark enough to spawn him, THREATENED TWO OF HIS OWN FRIENDS TO MAKE SURE HE WOULD CORRUPT THE MULTIVERSE AND THEN ATTEMPTED TO KILL ONE OF THEM, and made Wally take his place in what was actually described as a Hell and instead put up the front that he simply wanted to escape his own time paradox that would erase him from the history books after he failed to kill aforementioned wife.
