Enticing developments in Cicada's backstory and a festive family finish make "O Come All Ye Faithful" a real holiday treat -- and proves that even super families can't escape Thanksgiving drama.
With Cicada's own personal journey of becoming a surrogate parent and it seems like a solid episode; and it wasn't bad but the villain of the week, while topical, didn't do it for me.
Cicada's Origin is dived into in a way which not only fleshes out how he became what he is...but what he sets out to do as well.
This one had some weird moments and the standard non-threatening rogue, but Orlin's backstory and Team Flash learning his identity made this a significant episode.
It successfully showed the origins of Cicada.
Fathers and daughters were very much a theme this week in The Flash's (belated) Thanksgiving episode, as Nora grew frustrated with Barry's derring-do, Weather Wizard's little girl stormed Central City and Cicada's backstory was revealed.
Along with telling a compelling story about the burgeoning West-Allen family, we finally got a bit of backstory into what makes the meta serial killer Cicada tick.
I love Barry's optimism. He is sure they will find a way to change his future so he can be with his family. He's known for a while that he disappears, but he didn't know the impact that would have on anyone.
"O Come, All Ye Faithful" filled in some Cicada blanks to set up next week's 100th episode in some epic ways.
"O Come All Ye Faithful" has some heavy content, but it takes time to show off The Flash's ability to tackle that content while still warming your heart along the way
The relationships and interplay among these characters can be plenty entertaining without heaving big drama bombs into the mix every week.
