This explains why Nora wanted lớn meet her father badly as she never got khổng lồ know Barry in her timeline. Another big moment here is the introduction of the iconic Flash ring as Barry gets his new suit, but also this important tool.



While undercover episodes can sometimes be hit or misses depending on a bunch of variables, this thirteenth episode was definitely a miss.

The mystery of Caitlin’s (Danielle Panabaker) supposedly dead father Thomas Snow was an on-and-off one for this season. After being introduced in the first half of the season, the show kind of forgot his storyline until later on. Caitlin saves Thomas from the Icicle, but the family reunion is cut short when Cicadomain authority II (Sarah Carter) kills hlặng. It"s as anti-climactic as it sounds.
