Critic reviews for Nora

The Flash with its Season 5 premiere introduced us (as well as Barry and Iris!) to grown-up Nora West-Allen - as well as revealed a dark truth the future speedster came bearing.

Iris' storyline is going to be the best of the series.

The Flash has its heart back and "Nora" is filled with so many emotional and heartbreaking moments.

A promising start for the new season and provided the writers find new wrinkles on the sidekick angle, this could be a big improvement over the back end of last year.

The season five premiere serves to remind fans that we love The Flash because we like these characters and the family they have created for themselves, and family is at the heart of this show possibly more than any of the other Arrowverse series.

It can not be stated enough how good Jessica Parker Kennedy is in this role... the way she seamlessly blends into the world and is so Barry's kid is perfectly timed in every way. It's going to be a delight to see how she continues on in this series.
