    He directed the episode and played like 5 different personalities in it, so really, kudos on that.

    That was Adam West's Batman for me.

    I look forward to seeing how that conversation in the end between Nora and Thawne continued. Nora looked pissed. I imagine that she is going to confront Thawne about him killing Barry's mom, her grandmother. I am guessing that Nora is going to want stop helping Thawne and he is going to pressure her into continuing to help him. Thawne is going to use the fact that Nora desperately wants to save Barry from the Crisis to make her feel like she has no choice but to help Thawne.

    I think the conversation would probably go something like this:
    Nora: "How could you!? You killed Barry's mom when he was just a kid!"
    Thawne: "Yes, I did. I hate Barry. I wanted to hurt him!"
    Nora: "I hate you! You are evil! I never should have helped you. I am done with you. I am going to confess all to Barry."
    Thawne: "I wouldn't do that if I were you. You need me. I am the only one who can help you save Barry. You do want your precious daddy back, don't you?"

    I don't think Thawne is literally related to Nora, but he may be responsible for her existence. It's possible that Nora West-Allen only exists because Thawne changed the timeline by killing Barry's mother. It would be interesting if Thawne felt real paternal attachment to Nora as a result.

    Thawn made Barry became the Flash 5 years early.

    All conception dates for every future-child on the planet after The Flash enters the media, goes right out the window, especially Barry and Iris' kids.

    So... the Flash is fast enough to run through time, but can’t put race a knife from several miles above the Earth? He can’t run over to Cicada and punch him out? In fact, why did he stop punching him? Why didn’t he put on the meta human cuffs the moment Cisco got rid of the knife—now that he oddly has his powers back? Oh. Because we’re gonna drag this whole Woe is Me Villian out some more.

    Still. The ending aside, it was a pretty savvy way to celebrate 100 by going back through old enemies.

    Looking forward to the reveal.

    The Knife doesn't make him super strong?

    What is in his lungs?

    Cicada has super powers, and his knife has super powers.

    Who cares. It's a dumb character that, fundamentally speaking, is only a small step removed from Captain MAGA. He's boring and uninteresting. The should have ended it there and move on to Thawora.

    Chris Cline is the A-List movie star that isn't.

    He should have been huge, but the poor bastard just fell flat after American Pie.

    Is Cicada's doctor-friend going to be a supervillain? Did they mention her name?

    Hey now. He's still the best live-action Charlie Nash.

    Not quite true. "Election" is one of the best movies or comedies ever and he is really funny in it. Granted I don't like "American Pie" so to me he has been one shinning moment and that is it.

    That’s such a good idea that I doubt the writers of this show have thought of it.

    Now that the crossover is over, I'm excited to get back to the main storyline. Looking forward to January.

    I’m ready for some more Reverse Flash speeches from Tom Cavanagh.

    I may be in the minority but I hope they only keep Cicada for as long as they're contractually obligated to Klein. In fact, while they're at it, they can dump Sherloque so Cavanagh can put 100% into Harrawne.

    Him trying to get Superman to deliver an alimony check was pretty funny though.

    A chequing account that works pandimensionally?

    Subtle differences in universes could and should make the currency in most counter Earth's counterfeit to one another, even if it's just the wrong US Treasury Secretary signing the currency into practice.

    (Steve Mnuchin has signed a recent round of dollar bills making them legal tender, and some of them will be in circulation for the next 20 to 50 years.)

    Diamonds or gold would be fine though.

    He probably just diversified his portfolio across multiple Earths.

    So Crisis will also brings a different kind of crisis to investors. :p
