Decent backstory for the new big bad. Too bad they included more Wells crap. Nora's parent issues have also worn way too thin. Give it a rest already.

Only halfway through the ep because I had hit the sack, will finish tonight. But DAMN YOU DC for making me choke up in that Barry/Nora scene.

Wells being a Debbie Downer for Thanksgiving early in the ep was hilarious.

At least we get a big bad with a compelling and plausible backstory which is something I suppose.

I had never heard of Jessica Parker Kennedy before she came to this show but holy damn she's the most perfect combination of hot and cute ever.

I just wish her character didn't act like an 11 year old half the time.

FLASH series gave the Weather Witch a whole new different back story. Nice upgrade.

In the comics she appeared in a handful of issues and then killed by the Weather Wizard.

ITA. Have they ever said how old she is supposed to be? I get the impression they are going for early 20's even though she is far older than that.

Barry's been missing for twenty five years in her timeline so she has to be older than that. I figure late twenties.

It's odd after seeing her be the madam / prostitute / hyper-sexual dynamo of Black Sails with the creole accent for four seasons. Plus the fact that she's clearly in her early 30's.

Or for back surgery.

Don't understand why they just can't write that into the show.

Maybe they just hadn't gotten to that point in real life by the time they filmed this episode.

Someone finally said it. Though thinking about the recent big bads on Flash, I think the producers tell the villain actors to really ham it up. It has to be the direction, because we've seen capable actors on the show do much the same thing.

I liked this episode because it showed the backstory of Cicada.

Some good scenes between Barry and Nora. You really saw some depth and emotional attachment she has to him.

But, I still hate Sherlocque.

Really enjoyed this one. Cicada's backstory was solid. However...

It was really noticable this episode. He's seemed decent in previous appearances, but this one was just ... not good.

Thinking back though, every major villain from Reverse Flash to Zoom, and Savitar... they all spent most of the season behind voice masks. Klein has had that in tiny bits, but he's mostly been on his own, doing his best Batman impression.
