Hey guys! I have an exciting piece of news for Y’all. CW just came out with the official synopsis of “Nora” which is the Season 5 premiere of flash. We also saw a detailed Season 5 trailer at the SDCC, but first, let’s talk about Nora and who she is. So Nora who was introduced to us in Season 4 as the daughter of Barry Allen and Iris West-Allen. She made her first appearance in “Crisis on Earth-X” and awed us with her acting ability. Nora is played by Jessica Parker Kennedy. I would say she is the Central point of Season 5 now, earlier touted as “mystery girl.”
At the end of Season 4, Nora appeared out of nowhere and saved Barry’s (Flash) life. She later turned up at his doorstep, told him who she was and said that she’d made mistakes in life. Now all of us are aware of rumors where Nora was supposed to be, A. Dawn Allen. She was supposed to play Barry and Iris’s twins from the future in the comics.
We’ve also heard rumors of Nora as XS, a speedster with ties to the Legion of Super-Heroes. It turns out; those were baseless rumors. Nora is a combination of the above mentioned and XS is nothing but her Superhero identity. Barry and Iris are her parents. What a thrill would it be to learn for Flash and his wife that Nora is actually their daughter!

The Flash Season 5: Villain
So for Season 5, the makes have decided to cast Cicada, alias of David Hersch as Flash’s namesis. Using two lightning shaped daggers Hersch acquires the control to snatch and possess powers of others. Hersch doesn’t stop there, he creates an army of sorts and kills everyone saved by the Scarlett speedster. All he wants is the death of Flash, somehow. We have reports of Hersch’s appearence being, “grizzled, blue-collar everyman whose family has been torn apart by metahumans, Cicada now seeks to exterminate the epidemic — one metahuman at a time.” Grant Gustin who portrays The Flash, confirmed Hersch’s appearence on the show. Cicada and Nora will be interweaved in a series of events. Cicada is a blue collar metahuman as we are being told.
