Barry should just make a time remnant to take his place in jail. I’m sure nothing can go wrong...

Username checks out

[–]Red_0utlaws 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It's a bot.

[–]Metroidman 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Or fuck up the timeline so he isn't in jail

[–]ILoveWildlife 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I would love for that to bring back savitar.

except a better savitar. one that was raised in prison, rather than neglected by family.

Here comes Savitar Part II

Surely Cisco has his back on this one, just vibe them in his cell

[–]villakillareal28 45 points46 points  (1 child)

He just to remember to eat them at night when the guards and other prisoners are sleeping. I can imagine one prisoner- "you got candy give it to me you little punk"

[–]niijonodhg[S] 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Good luck to the prisoner, I'm sure Barry can take any standard thug inside.

[–]hsalFehT 17 points18 points  (0 children)

I mean... its not like he can't go grab a big belly burger any time he wants.

they don't know he's a meta.

[–]niijonodhg[S] 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I liked this idea the most, I just hope they show it in a brief scene

[–]yumitsuyou can't get me :?D 48 points49 points  (5 children)

He needs insane amounts of food to use his speed, iirc if he doesn't use speed a normal meal should be good for him.

If he uses his speed in prision then idk

[–]NoamHashbrown 56 points57 points  (2 children)

Won't he still have a high metabolism from like existing

[–]jmonumber3some would say I'm the....opposite 30 points31 points  (1 child)

speed force

[–]niijonodhg[S] 23 points24 points  (0 children)

plot force

[–]TALL421Harry 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Actually this is a great point. Think about how in season 3's Flashpoint, we only see Barry bring Eobard a sack of big belly burger, and he was never using speed in this time either.

[–]mhurton 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It’s a thing in the comics that the metabolism gets retconned. Maybe he’ll discover he doesn’t need it now

[–]PaunchvillaCisco Ramon 28 points29 points  (11 children)

barry can leave the prison at night at will. he can just put a speed mirage of himself sleeping and run off to eat, and have sex with iris, and fight crime, and then come back to his cell and resume his position.

[–]StrikingforTheCW 11 points12 points  (5 children)

I thought speed mirages only lasted like a minute

[–]dfj3xxxI'm only fast asleep 41 points42 points  (1 child)

That's all he needs for sex with iris

[–]PaunchvillaCisco Ramon 7 points8 points  (1 child)

i don't think we have any time frame as to how long they last. eobard made one of wellsobard in s1 that lasted quite a long time with no one realizing the beaten-up dr wells was a mirage.

either way barry doesn't need it to last all night. just long enough for him to come and go as needed. it's not like guards check on sleeping prisoners every hour, or even at all.

[–]hsalFehT 3 points4 points  (0 children)

i don't think we have any time frame as to how long they last. eobard made one of wellsobard in s1 that lasted quite a long time with no one realizing the beaten-up dr wells was a mirage.

... I thoguht the one being beaten up was the real one, he was miraging as rf and to do that he had to keep switching places if I recall.

[–]Metroidman 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That one episode he did a whole bunch of shit before a pancake hit the ground

[–]ZubinBOG 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Speed mirages over that distance won't work. A speed mirage is achieved by moving so fast between two points that it appears that you're in two places, but you're actually at neither. Which is why it's called a 'mirage'.

[–]PaunchvillaCisco Ramon 2 points3 points  (1 child)

we have no idea what distance they work over. again, wellsobard was a mirage while barry was outside fighting reverse flash, and then escaped into the distance. it's hard to say how far he went before he came back and replaced wellsobard.

[–]Tabuu132I know you loved her to pieces. 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm pretty sure Wellsobard on the ground in the trap was a hologram for at least part of that time

[–]hsalFehT 0 points1 point  (0 children)

he can just put a speed mirage of himself sleeping and run off to eat,

that is 100% not how a speed mirage works...

but he could easily run out grab a big belly burger and eat it and be back before anyone noticed he was gone.

unless there are cameras in his cell.

[–]Happyradish532 0 points1 point  (0 children)

A speed mirage won't stay if he's gone. It's an image created by a speedster moving so fast between two points, they appear to be in both places. He'd have to constantly be running back to the prison. And once he gets a certain distance away, he won't be able to maintain it.

[–]StrikingforTheCW 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Well Eobard made one that lasted like 10 seconds when telling Cisco but I thought that the one in the trap was a hologram

[–]hsalFehT 2 points3 points  (0 children)

... by going back and forth between the 2 spots so fast you couldn't see...

... that's how a speed mirage is created...

the one in the trap was a hologram, but when it "escaped" the trap and started beating up wells it was a speed mirage.

[–]look8meTo me you've shitposted for centuries... 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I hope they address this on the show.

Attention to details is always awesome.

[–]niijonodhg[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Me too, I bet they dont though.

[–]I_Have_3_LegsGODSPEED 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He can literally phase out of prison and go eat big belly burger in a few seconds. He could do it at nite or something.

[–]Volerikan 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Can’t he just phase out of jail, grab a snack and come back within a second?

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

To be fair here,It's not like there isn't metahumands rotting in 4 block cells without any food or life supplies.

[–]Metroidman 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Barry can just run out to grab something to eat whenever he wants

[–]wererat2000Beebo is the one true Grodd 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think that stopped being a problem because of the plotforce speedforce. Back in S1 his powers were more physically intensive, but as he learned to control the speedforce it stopped being such a drain on his body.

Then again, I'm pretty sure they still make jokes about how he can eat five pizzas on his own or some shit, so who knows anymore.

[–]bmxkeeler 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Can someone explain to me how I can see what the OP posted? It just says Spoiler. When I click it, hover over it, right click it. I don't see it revealed?

No, Barry needs to consume that amount in the event of a metahuman attack that he can be the Flash and run there on a moments notice, he won't need to consume a large amount when he's in jail and not as Barry Allen.
