Am I the only one that wishes Godspeed had more screen time in this weeks episode of The Flash?
Seeing Godspeed as the main catalyst for Nora West Allen realizing her powers was cool.
with the killing of her best friend aside.
I kind of wish his character was a little more flushed out. I suppose if he became the main villain for season six, it would feel a little redundant. But, he sure looked cool.
Spoilers a head
This Godspeed episode aimed to explain how Nora West Allen linked up with Reverse Flash,
Eobard Thawne. Last episode, Barry didn’t hesitate to throw her in that cell when he found out.
That may be the most boss thing that he’s ever done. He may be a complete boss after this episode. I’ll explain why later.
Anyway, this episode we find out Nora worked on a case where an artificial speedster, Godspeed was stealing chemicals to make himself a permanent speedster.
In the process, Nora and her best friend find out that she has always been a speedster, and in fact her mother, Iris put a power dampener in her chest. We the audience found this out early in the season. But during this episode, the hurt is brand new.
Finding out her mom stopped her from being her true self, coupled with the fact that her best friend dies at the hands of Godspeed…
… Nora turns to a incarcerated, Eobard Thawne to hone her skills and get rid of Godspeed.
Here’s the thing, Barry and friends found all this information out and deduced that she was sad and lonely. Of course, Iris felt that her future self left Nora no alternative so she let her out of her cell. I can see both sides.
Iris’ guilt has her wanting to change things for her child. But, Barry is still thinking Eobard could have poisoned her mind. Both sides are understandable.
Now can we talk about how Barry Allen is a complete boss?
The best part of the night came when Barry threw Nora back into the future and left her there. He has reached a new level of intense!
That was better than throwing her in the cell. Just kicking her out of the timeline all together! I laughed and gasped at the same time!
Imaging your dad being so pissed at you that he throws you to a different timeline and tells you never to come back.
Feels bad, man.
Looking forward to next week! I expect some strain on Barry and Iris at this point because Nora and Iris just forgave each other for the power dampening situation. So, now that Barry is ready to throw her away, things may not go over so well.
