Warning: Full spoilers for The Flash Season 5, Episode 18 below. If you need a refresher on where we left off, check out our review for Season 5, Episode 17.
This week’s Flash episode is one of those cases where the trailer wasn’t a very good indicator of what to expect. The series seemed to be building to a big showdown between Nora and Team Flash, with Eobard Thawne stepping out of the shadows and making his presence known again. Instead, what we actually got was more of an extended origin story for Nora, one punctuated by a dash of the West-Allen family drama teased in the trailer. But regardless of expectations, the end result was a largely satisfying episode that did a great deal to flesh out Nora and her relationship with Thawne.
