okay, so what happens DIRECTLY before this bit of dialogue needs needs NEEDS to be talked about.
This entire episode is all about Batman and Orion shitting all over how The Flash does things and how flippant and aloof he is and so they all go to his city to try to stop some of his criminals from trying to kill the flash.
And when Flash finds this villain in the bar Batman and Orion both try to beat the info out of him and flash calls them off and sits right down next to him and just asks if he’s gone off his meds and lets him vent about what’s going on in his life. And at the end he tells the Flash that he’ll start taking his medicine again and where the rest of the villains are that are trying to kill him. ONLY THEN does Flash tell him to hand himself in.
once Flash is assured that he’s okay and not going to hurt anyone else. it flies in the face of Batman’s fear and Orion’s brutality, it throws both of their brutal real-world techniques out of the water… because the Flash just wants people to be happy and safe, not to strike fear or defeat foes.
and that makes him pretty amazing
Dr. Seuss was not even in the general area of fucking around.
BMO stares death in the face
she had a tough time getting out of the block pit
IF YOU HAVE NEVER BEEN I A BLOCK PIT THEN YOU DONT KNWO THE FEAR. IT SUCKS YOU IN DEEPER AS YOU TRY TO MOVE. IT’S LIKE THE MUGGLE’S DEVIL’S SNARE MAN.
YOU HAVE TO USE ALL YOUR STRENGTH TO GET OUT OF THOSE FUCKERS
I HAVE BEEN IN ONE AND ITS LIKE SWIMMING IF YOU DON’T STOP MOVING YOU EITHER FLOAT OR SINK THERE IS NO IN BETWEEN
WE HAD THESE WHEN I USED TO BE IN GYMNASTICS AND I HATED THESE FUCKING THINGS THEY SCARED THE SHIT OUT OF ME
Is it bad that I actually want to go into one of these just to see how it feels?
ALRIGHT LET ME EXPLAIN SOMETHING ABOUT THE BLOCK PITS
THERE IS A ROPE THAT YOU SWING OFF TO DIVE INTO THIS THING BUT FUCK THE ROPE BECAUSE THAT SHIT ONLY DUMPS YOU IN THE MIDDLE OF THE PIT WHICH IS NOT WHERE YOU WANT TO BE. WHEN YOU’RE A LITTLE KID THIS WAS TERRIFYING BECAUSE THAT SHIT WAS DEEP TO AN ADULT, WHEN YOU’RE FOUR FEET TALL FALLING INTO THIS THING IS ESSENTIALLY GETTING SUCKED INTO THE PITS OF HELL BECAUSE THERE IS NO ESCAPE THERE IS NO FLOOR YOU JUST SINK UNTIL YOU FALL OUT THE OTHER END INTO HELL OR THE VOID OR MIDDLE EARTH, NO ONE KNOWS BECAUSE NO ONE SURVIVES. THIS IS WHERE THEY SENT YOU AS ULTIMATE PUNISHMENT IN GYMNASTICS. LITTLE SALLY JUST PUSHED SAMMY OFF A BAR YOU SAY? LITTLE SALLY HAS TO GO SIT IN THE BLOCK PIT AND THINK ABOUT WHAT SHE DID ON HER WAY DOWN.
