The Flash Recap: Did Well-Meaning Barry Just Make a Big Mistake?

Picking up with Nora visiting Thawne in prison circa 2049, she makes clear that he’s “lucky” she came back at all, given what she now knows about his role in her grandmother’s death. Thawne admits that he harbors the same level of hatred for Barry as vice versa, but then argues that he has given Nora so much despite that — time travel lessons, time with her father, fighting crime side by side. “As long as I can remember, I have only thought of myself, but I don’t want that to be my legacy,” he said. But Nora no longer trusts him, and declines to help him any further.

The Meta of the Week would lead Nora to reconsider her stance. Simply said, Raya aka Silver Ghost is an honorably discharged Air Force pilot who uses meta tech to seize control of vehicles, starting with a Lamborghini. When Barry chases her down and touched the souped-up car, its unstable dark matter destabilizes him, putting him at risk of  phasing into the ground. To solve that problem for the time being, the team guides him into a Pipeline cell, where his powers will be dampened.

That leaves Nora to pick up the slack, first by delivering CSI evidence against Joss aka Weather Witch at Cecile’s first post-maternity leave trial. Sensing remorse from Joss, Cecile starts to throw the case, but Nora on the stand grows full of fury, believing that bad people can never change. Nora sticks to that theory when it appears that Joss is in cahoots with Raya, especially after the latter breaks the former out of jail, but Joss eventually proves her contrition by using her powers to crash the next-gen, Wayne tech-powered getaway car they pinched from the famously, famously impenetrable ARGUS.

Joss’ turnabout, coupled with a pep talk she got earlier from Barry — who when prompted went so far as to suggest that even Eobard Thawne (!) could change, and heroes should try to see the good in people — led Nora to reconsider her POV on Thawne, whom she visited in the hour’s penultimate scene.

“You either trust me or you dont, there is no in between,” Thawne told Barry’s daughter. Nora maintained that she didn’t, but she is willing to give him a chance to change her mind. Thawne is glad to hear this, but reminds her that time is not on his side, and we see a clock outside his cell that is ticking down, with less than 52 minutes to go. “Let me prove there is good inside me,” he says, and Nora agrees, asking: “What’s next?
