Full of humor, intrigue, and a delightful Jessica Parker Kennedy, "Nora" is a welcome return to form for The Flash.
That's it, I don't have many complaints, this felt like a season 1 and 2 episode and I loved just about all of it. We saw our big bad of the season and it looks a bit like, well, I'll not spoil it, but label me curiosity piqued!
The Flash with its Season 5 premiere introduced us (as well as Barry and Iris!) to grown-up Nora West-Allen - as well as revealed a dark truth the future speedster came bearing.
Iris' storyline is going to be the best of the series.
The Flash has its heart back and "Nora" is filled with so many emotional and heartbreaking moments.
A promising start for the new season and provided the writers find new wrinkles on the sidekick angle, this could be a big improvement over the back end of last year.
The season five premiere serves to remind fans that we love The Flash because we like these characters and the family they have created for themselves, and family is at the heart of this show possibly more than any of the other Arrowverse series.
It can not be stated enough how good Jessica Parker Kennedy is in this role... the way she seamlessly blends into the world and is so Barry's kid is perfectly timed in every way. It's going to be a delight to see how she continues on in this series.
"Nora" gives a nod to everything that makes The Flash great. It's filled with heart, humor, and might have you dabbing at your eyes a time or two. The episode also doesn't skimp on the cool factor.
XS is still rather endearing and her arrival helps the show balance the more serious elements of recent seasons with the fun of the early days. In this regard, the season-five premiere is a return to form for The Flash.
The Flash Season 5 Episode 1 has finally aired, and it's official: Barry Allen and Co. have rediscovered their sweet spot and reclaimed their name as the best superhero show The CW has to offer.
