After Cicada’s attack, the team realizes it needs to think outside the box to stop this dangerous new foe; Nora comes up with a plan that ultimately puts a team member in danger Caitlin delves into her past.
The Flash keeps things going at a fantastic pace as the team explores the concept that XS has already altered the timeline in some way. Cicada has arrived, arrived sooner, and attacked different metas than what XS remembers. It’s an interesting concept and continues the series’ idea that maybe the Flash(s) aren’t the best for the timeline. They seem to alter it a lot and not always for the better.
The episode is a good one bring in a new multiverse Wells, who’s actually a little irritating, to help figure out who Cicada is. There’s some feints and some fake outs along the way. It’s all done in a way in that you think things are getting resolved rather quickly but nope, we’ve got some time to go.
There’s nothing major about the episode, it’s just a fun one with some solid action and a nice build for whatever is to come. There’s some tense moments and there’s moments where you wonder where it’s going to go.
What the episode feels like is a live action comic book and an issue that’s part of the larger arc. It doesn’t stand on its own but as part of the story, it’s a good entry.
