Although the season-long build up to this episode's main event ultimately underwhelms, "Failure is an Orphan" still satisfies by successfully uniting plotlines.
Jessica Parker Kennedy is everything for me this season and despite my high hopes of Cicada vanishing tonight, there were enough scenes that really did their job and the main narrative moved along at just the right pace.
Failure Is an Orphan went an interesting route...Still, it's nice to see a real threat arrive and the potential for Team Flash to have to work to beat this new and improved model Cicada.
"Failure is an Orphan" finally tries to face the fact that Orlin Dwyer's Cicada is a complete disaster as a villain, but it's honestly a case of too little, too late.
'Failure Is An Orphan' was one of the season's finest outings so far as it effectively brought everything together and stayed on target the whole way throughout. The result was a long overdue thriller that also had some real heart.
Just when it seems like the latest Big Bad was under wraps, things went sideways in about the most epic way possible.
Sorry if it sounds like I don't like Nora. She has caused so much trouble since arriving.
Even without the finality many of us hoped for, "Failure Is An Orphan" does a better job of advancing the arc than most recent episodes.
I'll level with you -- "Failure is an Orphan" is not my cup of tea. There's something great buried in Iris' desperation to get time in with her daughter before she leaves, but there's no reason Nora has to leave immediately after stopping Cicada.
The Flash wrapped up a major phase of Season 5, but the strong buildup led to an underwhelming payoff.
What we got was two-thirds of a filler episode, finished off with a reveal I'm fairly sure almost all Flash fans saw coming.
