Nora Allen-West (Jessica Parker Kennedy) made her presence known on the season 5 premiere of The Flash.
After arriving from the future at the end of season 4, having been teased throughout the season, Nora told Team Flash that she wasn’t able to get home. Wally (Keiynan Lonsdale) discovered that she had negative tachyons in her blood, which reacted with the Speed Force making it impossible for her to time travel.
Barry (Grant Gustin) was concerned that Nora’s arrival could alter time and Iris (Candice Patton) quickly noticed that Nora was warmer with Barry than her. Nora did eventually come clean revealing that Barry disappeared in the future when she was young so she never really got to know her father.
Meanwhile the team encountered a new metahuman named Gridlock (Daniel Cudmore) who was able to harness kinetic energy. The team banded together with Nora to stop him but on his way to prison, Gridlock was attacked by a masked individual holding a Flash insignia shaped blade.
The next episode of the season is Blocked. Barry and Team Flash track down a meta that is stealing high-tech weapons, only to cross paths with a new foe named Cicada, who is hunting the very same meta, with nefarious intent.
