x The Flash season 5 has so far set up Chris Klein’s Cicada to be the big bad of this season, but the folks at CinemaBlend aren’t convinced that another force isn’t subtly manipulating events from off-screen. Yes, this theory goes that Eobard Thawne will be coming back once again, this time as the puppet-master for poor Nora. The theory hinges around the scene from a recent episode in which Sherloque Wells questions whether Nora destroyed the satellite that ended up creating Cicada of her own volition. She hesitates and Wells soon changes the subject, but this was surely a little hint that there’s a bigger plan at work here, with someone else using Nora to alter history and bring about a different version of Cicada from that of the original timeline. And, of course, if we’re talking about changing history on The Flash, Reverse-Flash is the first name that springs to mind. Perhaps Thawne trained Nora in the future, once she realized she was … [Read more...] about Is Reverse-Flash Pulling The Strings In The Flash Season 5?
Flash season 5
x Nora’s been keeping secrets from her parents Barry Allen and Iris West ever since she arrived in the present. The truth about the time-traveling speedster is slowly coming out, though, and this week’s episode of The Flash season 5 revealed the reason why Nora’s been so cold towards her mother ever since the new run began. It comes out in “News Flash” that Nora can’t forgive Iris for a secret of her own that her mother kept from her for her whole life. It turns out that Nora only found out she was a metahuman not too long before her arrival in the present, as Iris had implanted a power-dampening chip into her daughter. In fact, the scar’s still fresh when she shows it to Iris. The older Iris’ side of things was obviously not explained, so we don’t know right now why she took this drastic measure, but we’ll surely find out soon. Interestingly, though, the current Iris ultimately agreed with what she decided to do to … [Read more...] about The Flash Season 5 Reveals Nora’s Problem With Iris
x Five seasons in and fans are pretty used to the formula of The Flash. Due to various dark matter explosions, a multitude of metahuman baddies have been unleashed on Central City that Barry Allen and his friends at STAR Labs have had to deal with. Season 5 has just introduced an intriguing twist on that idea, though: the new threat isn’t metahumans but rather, meta-technology. It’s revealed in “News Flash” that The Enlightenment – Clifford DeVoe’s plan to diminish the intelligence of humanity from the season 4 finale – resulted in tech across the city being granted extra abilities. For instance, Spin’s phone had the power to hypnotize others into doing her bidding. This same incident created season 5’s big bad Cicada, as unveiled in yesterday’s episode. Though the Flash thought he’d saved everyone from the Thinker’s satellites falling from the sky, Orlin Dwyer was hit by a piece of space junk, which imbued … [Read more...] about The Flash Season 5 Reveals Cicada’s Unique Origins

x Nora Allen might have super-speed just like her pops, but it seems the superheroine will be in need of some saving in an upcoming episode of The Flash season 5.
