What I imagined after the fight to happen:

Cisco: "Wait a minute, Earth 15 wasn't a dead earth at all!"

Wells: "Well, now it is"

[–]cer1992 23 points24 points  (13 children)

It couldn't meant anything. That earth is uninhabited, humans and all the other species became extinct, no life forms ever even existed, so forth

[–]TellsyouajokeStick ur dick in the timeline 33 points34 points  (12 children)

Earth-15 was killed by Superboy Prime

[–]baobab_bob 7 points8 points  (4 children)

Really? When?

[–]TellsyouajokeStick ur dick in the timeline 14 points15 points  (3 children)

Not in the show, officially, but in the comics he did.

http://dc.wikia.com/wiki/Earth_15

I assumed that was a reference when Harry says it's a dead world

[–]baobab_bob 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Which comic? I'd like to know more about it

[–]TellsyouajokeStick ur dick in the timeline 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Wiki says this is the first appearance

[–]baobab_bob 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Cool. Thanks!

[–]CaptainKurls 78 points79 points  (4 children)

Too soon

[–]Hxxerre 49 points50 points  (2 children)

She's been forgiven so its water under the bridge of the dead thousands

Hi, I'm Ragman. I'm here to do two things: eat up the front half of the season's special effects budget and absolve a pet character's sinful stupidity. Oh, job's done? Bye!

[–]FancyKetchup96 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Honestly I thought that was a good and interesting plot point, but then they just say "Don't worry, it's all good!"

[–]LeCluster 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Am I too soon ?

[–]ZerithaneI am ALCHEM-- Wait, is that Revan? 53 points54 points  (1 child)

Meanwhile, Devoe: Ohoho, I KNEW you'd send that radiation to the ruined and unpopulated surface of Earth-15! That's why I put my TOP SECRET villain machine there to absorb that delicious radiation! Thank you VERY much, Mr. Ramon!

[–]DrakenZA 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I was thinking the same thing. I feel like the energy is going to be a plot point in the future at some point.

[–]Chodasaurus 66 points67 points  (0 children)

Leave the mass murder to felicity.

[–]mujie123 22 points23 points  (0 children)

I was expecting you to say "send it to Earth 2" because of the old meme about how Earth 2 lives don't matter.

[–]Eagan15Firestorm (Ignited) 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Firestorm would have really come in handy, makes me wonder if Jax saw what was happening on the news or something and got into his feels RIP

[–]DonnyMox 1 point2 points  (0 children)

“Gray! We’ve gotta go - oh, that’s right, you’re gone...”

Dammit, I made myself sad!

[–]mhurton 8 points9 points  (4 children)

There are like 1000 places on earth that are hundreds of miles from human beings, why were they acting like there was nowhere to send him?

[–]Meta_Boy 14 points15 points  (3 children)

umm. Flora and Fauna? I'm not an environmentalist but I would prefer not to dump pure nuclear radiation "just somewhere".

[–]mhurton 0 points1 point  (2 children)

When the alternative is nuking a city full of people I think your plan should be better than “panic and hope there’s a barren planet somewhere in the multiverse”

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's a superhero show with a speedster and nuclear man. Dumping it on a dead planet fits perfectly.

[–]CommanderlunaOnly thing worse than her choice in men is her choice in fashion 25 points26 points  (20 children)

Why not send it to Earth X? The only good Nazi is a dead Nazi

[–]CannibalIowa 25 points26 points  (3 children)

There were victims of their regime there too. Yeah, you’d be killing tons of Nazis but also people in concentration camps.

[–]CommanderlunaOnly thing worse than her choice in men is her choice in fashion 6 points7 points  (2 children)

There was a headquarters for the Nazis. They had giant skyscrapers. Teleport it INSIDE one of those. The concentration camps are far away from the buildings because the Nazis believed that they were superior and didn't want to be around people they killed (specifically Jewish people, gay people, Romani people, black people, and people of any nonwhite ethnicity) which works to the advantage of us in nuking them because they've already isolated themselves to one area so so long as we're careful targeting we can avoid civilian casualties.

[–]CannibalIowa 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Is Cisco’s jumping that accurate through other Earths? Plus, that would’ve taken a lot more planning then they have time for. Easier and safer to send it to a dead Earth.

Plus, now that I think of it, they could’ve easily accidentally started another war with Earth X that way.

[–]Akashix09 5 points6 points  (5 children)

Good thinking.

[–]CommanderlunaOnly thing worse than her choice in men is her choice in fashion 9 points10 points  (4 children)

Thanks! And yeah the only part I really liked of the Earth X crossover was the rampant Nazi murder and how Killer Frost straight up sliced em next to Mick Rory burning them. And also Oliver breaking the No Kill "Rule" to kill Nazi Him.

[–]drostandfound 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Nazi=/=people obviously. They are the killing exception. And bad metas I guess.

[–]CommanderlunaOnly thing worse than her choice in men is her choice in fashion 1 point2 points  (2 children)

The moment Nazis decided they were superior to other people and that their whole life philosophy was that everyone who isn't white should die then they became worthless scumbags who deserve only death.

[–]lightsaberrave 0 points1 point  (1 child)

No, it isn't the philosophy. You can't punish thought like that.

It's when they amassed an army and put people in concentration camps is when they deserved death.

That's when real harm was caused, not by having ideas

[–]CommanderlunaOnly thing worse than her choice in men is her choice in fashion 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Well I can't punish thought because it's physically impossible and morally wrong but when it came even to propoganda and marches that's when they deserve death

[–]DanGarionYou Can't Lock Up the Darkness! 5 points6 points  (0 children)

They would nazi that coming...

[–]Locked_Lamorra 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Is it still under Nazi command? They killed the leader and main general, and the rebels looked pretty well organized.

[–]Wajirock 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They also got Red Tornado

[–]Jimusmc5 2 points3 points  (5 children)

well the people fighting the nazis would die as well.

[–]CommanderlunaOnly thing worse than her choice in men is her choice in fashion -2 points-1 points  (4 children)

The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few. If it takes down enough Nazis to free the rest of the resistance it's worth it

[–]Kiel297 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sends radiation to earth-x. Hits the rebels first. Nazis regain control

[–]EVula 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Whoa whoa whoa, why do you think Cisco would just arbitrarily nuke innocent people? Who do you think she is, Felicity?

[–]CommanderlunaOnly thing worse than her choice in men is her choice in fashion 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Havenrock was a case of nuking a city of innocents to avoid hitting the area where she was and saving her own skin. Sending it to Earth X kills Nazis whose lives are worthless

[–]EVula 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I don't disagree that Nazi lives don't matter (seriously, fuck those guys, fictional or otherwise), but you're glossing over the fact that there were Nazi victims on that world; it wasn't 100% Nazis just roaming the planet looking for people to subjugate but finding none.

To semi-quote myself from elsewhere on this post, to avoid collateral damage on Earth-X, Cisco would’ve had to direct it specifically at an enemy base (and he wouldn't necessarily know where that would be; he didn't even visit Earth-X himself), which might be too specific a location for him to zero in on in a pinch. “Literally anywhere on a planet in a specific parallel dimension” is a lot less specific and, presumably, easier to do.

[–]lechevre 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yes! My thought exactly!

[–]Timanaku 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Or maybe that 1 nazi earth ?

[–]EVula 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I thought about that as well, but to be fair, there are good people there, so Cisco would’ve had to direct it specifically at an enemy base, which might be too specific a location for him to zero in on in a pinch. “Literally anywhere on a planet in a specific parallel dimension” is a lot less specific.

[–]deadadventure"IM THE HOOD" 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's being rebuilt that's why, duh. Being rebuilt for Felicity to nuke again.

[–]Felwat 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I was wondering why they didn’t send it to outer space. Plenty of radiation out there already anyway.
