The Flash explores uncharted territory in "Memorabilia," as Nora's parents get a glimpse into her memories from the future only to be confronted with some painful but profound discoveries.
Nora's storyline continues to pull me along but Cicada's is dragging down what I thought was going to be a banner season for The Flash; we're still early and there's still time.
Memorabilia wasn't a perfect episode, but it had some fun thrills and teased the next Flash/Reverse Flash confrontation. Not a bad way to spend 44 minutes.
All in all, 'Memorabilia' employed some interesting devices in an attempt to naturally progress the story, intertwining both of the season's main storylines nicely.
This is, largely, okay -- even great, actually -- as the show's Inception-esque dive into the memories of two damaged children in Grace and Nora wrestles with ideas of perception and understanding in surprising ways.
The episode also succeeded where last week's didn't: its plot was clever and exactly the Inception-style, psychological trip you'd expect it to be given the involvement of the mind.
As I want to believe this cure is a good thing, but I just know something bad is going to happen.
The Flash explored the future in "Memorabilia," but not quite in a way that the show has done before.
"Memorabilia" is a relatively successful attempt at marrying convoluted comic-book physics with emotionally resonant storytelling.
Sure, this one was built largely around a gimmick - but there's nothing wrong with a gimmick if you actually do it right. Thankfully, Team Flash absolutely nailed it with this one.
I demanded more Iris West Allen, and The Flash Season 5 Episode 12, gave me exactly that.
