x The Flash season 5 returned after a month off last night for its eighteenth episode, “Godspeed,” which took a trip into the future and Nora’s past. Through flashbacks – or maybe flash-forwards? – we saw how Barry and Iris’ daughter discovered that she had super-speed when she encountered the supervillain Godspeed. From there, we found out how she first came into contact with Reverse-Flash, who she’s secretly been in cahoots with all season. With her father having gone missing when she was a child, Eobard Thawne is the only place Nora can get the answers she craves and the supervillain helps her by sending her to the Time Vault in the Flash museum. While there, Nora realizes that her father was the Flash and what really happened to him – the Scarlet Speedster disappeared in a huge, apocalyptic crisis that took place in 2024. This didn’t come as a surprise, as this has long been established on the show. What was a shock, … [Read more...] about The Flash Dropped A Major Crisis On Infinite Earths Tease Last Night

6 minutes ago Spoilers ahead for Episode 13 of The Flash Season 5, "Goldfaced." Team Flash has been bearing down on Cicada for quite a while, but it looks as though the tables will turn on them in the next week. Check out the trailer for "Cause and XS," which shows the Season 5 villain strike back at Team Flash in a big way. Obviously these deaths may not be permanent, as Nora is trying to travel back in time and prevent the serial killer from killing various members of Team Flash. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear any amount of time travel she's engaging in is working. Will she be able to fix this mess on her own, or will she need someone else to clean up the mess she's made? As far as how Cicada managed to get the drop on Team Flash, that's an entirely different question. Did Iris' visit in "Goldfaced" accidentally put him on their path, or is this another result of Nora bending the timeline? It seems like the latter is a strong possibility, especially given that bit with … [Read more...] about The Flash: Cicada Strikes Back At Team Flash In New Episode Trailer
The Flash instead of Matt Letscher. While Matt Letscher did reprise the role of Eobard Thawne during the second season of Legends of Tomorrow, Cavanagh, since the Crisis on Earth-X crossover and beyond, he’s the face we saw as the Reverse Flash. Even during his brief nightmare appearance in the Elseworlds event, Reverse Flash was Tom Cavanagh and not Matt Letscher. Why is that? In an interview with TV line, Flash showrunner Todd Helbing was asked about Eobard Thawne looking like Tom Cavanagh and if there was a reason Matt Letscher did not return. But it ties into the theme of the season: “We love Matt — he’s fantastic as Reverse-Flash, too. But it’s funny, if you plot out the Thawne timeline — I think there’s a version of this online somewhere — it makes more sense, logically, in a weird, time-travel way, that this is the Thawne that we see. Also, the whole theme of this season is … [Read more...] about ‘The Flash’ Showrunner Reveals Why Tom Cavanagh Currently Plays Eobard Thawne
17 minutes ago Warning: spoilers ahead for Episode 10 of The Flash Season 5, called "The Flash & The Furious." Nora West-Allen has been a focal point of The Flash before fans even knew her identity, and she's come a long way since debuting as the Mystery Girl at Barry and Iris' wedding. At first in Season 5, the most objectionable thing about Nora seemed to be a failure to really understand the impact her presence in the past could have on the future. As Season 5 progressed, fans learned that Nora was concealing a dark secret: an alliance with Reverse Flash. The events of "The Flash & The Furious" raise the question of whether The Flash is setting Barry and Iris' daughter as a villain. Now, the key word here is "setting," as Nora's situation is not entirely one of her own making. Her intentions seem decent, if somewhat selfish in the grand scheme of things. Her actions... well, her actions could come across as quite villainous if she doesn't change her ways sooner … [Read more...] about Is The Flash Setting Up Nora As A Villain?
