Default Mention of JtR in recent episode of "The Flash"

In the episode called "Therefore I Am" of the series The Flash, a mad scientist who has succeeded in upping his brain power by getting struck by a man-made lightning bolt, tells his wife to test his knowledge.

"Who was Jack the Ripper?" She asks.
The man, soon to be dubbed The Thinker, replies, "Prevailing opinion is that a man named Kosmiskini was the Ripper, and that he died in an asylum."

Well, true, as far as it goes...

Well is it true, is that the prevailing opinion.

Sure, I think so. After all, he was on McNaughton's short list, and several experts agree with his nomination, as well as the mock trial.

I do not, however, say that the shawl fiasco helped his case.
