And right after he went back in time to get Cold to help him break into ARGUS and steal from her.
Trust Barry to stick to anything or keep his word? Nope, not a chance it hell.

Yep, you and Dennis deserve credit if this does indeed pan out like we think.
I'll be pleasantly surprised if that's not how things turn out though, because it seems so telegraphed:
-Reintroduce HR's transmogrifier early in the episode, so we remember it's still around
-Make HR the scapegoat for Savitar tracking down Iris, so that viewers can anticipate his ultimate redemption
-A meaningful glance exchanged between HR and Cisco when they part ways
Also, as others have pointed out, it seems to be an unspoken rule that Cavanaugh has to play a different version of himself every year, so why should we expect season 4 to be any different?

There was a name in ARGUS I didn't recognize, maybe that was her with a different ID than Priscilla Rich?And I'll give them slack for not double-blinding. Someone on Earth-1 needed to know where they were, to tell them after Savitar was defeated that it was safe to go back home.

The entire premise of this season is that Barry can't change the future to save Iris. But he's been unable to avoid changing the future every time he goes back into the past. The entire "Flashpoint" thing was him changing the future/present by going back and changing the past. Wouldn't it stand to reason that he could find numerous ways to change the future, then, simply by changing the past? Sure, he might screw up the timeline more, but this particular outcome would shift. Basically it makes no sense to say "We can't change the future" and "Every time Barry goes back in time he changes the future" in the same breath, but that's what The Flash wants us to accept.
As Sanderson writes in that same essay, "If we simply let ourselves develop new rules every time our characters are in danger, we will end up creating fiction that is not only unfulfilling and unexciting, but just plain bad."
