The dude playing Cicada is a terrrible actor, but its still a good villain story wise. The manipulation from the doctor is a nice addition as well. I haven't watched Arrow or Legends at all this season, but i think Supergirl and Flash have had some strong villains this year. They're also very similar.. Maybe they'll meet during the elseworlds stuff.
Nora is an annoying, but it has helped more than hurt. The preview for the next episode looks interesting. Looks like we'll get to see the Thawne version of Wells again. The best version. They should really find a way to bring him back. I think they will.
I rewatched the first episode a few days ago, and was floored by how good it was. How good the first season was altogether. I miss the style, and pace of the first year. It wasn't too silly, but I wasn't a fan of the finale either. It had me all the way up to when Eddie shot himself, and destroyed all logic in the show from then on out.
Nora was pretty effective at the start. But the absolutely unbelievable recurrence of daddy/daughter dynamics this season has completely oversaturated it to the point where every instance -- including Barry/Iris/Nora -- just comes off as a painfully obvious and self-referential trope at this point.
Seriously, let's line 'em up:
Killer Frost/Icicle guy
Weather Dick/Weather Bint
What's really got me concerned is that they haven't done some Joe/Iris shit, and the fact they haven't makes me wonder if the actor playing Joe has cancer of the ass or something.
But I'm sure they'll get around to having Jessie show up so Sher-loque can go, "Aw haw haw, allo allo, I em not yer fah-zzair, aw haw haw, you see, Ah am Frawnsh you know, now speed ah-weh or Ah weel taunt you a second time-uh!"
Well that last episode didn't disappoint. And, it seems I May have been on to something with my crazy theories. (Well, kinda) And, it was great seeing the Thawne Wells. As much as they throw logic out of the window when it comes to time travel I still find myself enjoying the episodes that feature it.
Kinda cheesed they played the same Elseworlds prologue as they did on Supergirl.
Yeah they managed to do the time travel thing without completely fucking up for once. Of course their plan didn't work because they never do. I wish it had though, Cicada's boring.
It's good that they remembered Nora writting in her journal in the weird language last season and looking kind of sinister. And an evil future Wells! Plus maybe Sherloque is actually Thrawne Wells in disguise (since he said the same "clever girl" thing about Nora.) So it's promising that we won't just have goofy Sherloque all season.
It's almost definitely Thawne, IMO, and yes, that's why. Come on, his French accent is fake AF. And if Team Flash can zip zap and zurp to alternate Earth's, so can Thawne, and it's not like it'd be the first time he embedded himself in a time/place he didn't belong.
I think Sherloque is Thawne too. I think at the conclusion of the Legends season 2 he found a way to stay alive, and he's been hiding out waiting ever since. Or when he encounters her back in the season 1 past and realised he never makes it back to the future he began setting up contingency plans for survival. He's been using her to further alter the timeline for his benefit. Then he found a way to manipulate her in the future as well as the past in his Sherloque disguise. But Sherloque perceived shadiness or Thawne like behaviour could be a red herring for when the real Thawne officially rejoins the show. If he didn't still live the timeline wouldve changed forever after season 1. No, he's been alive and manipulating team Flash all this time.
