The Flash Preview ‘O Come, All Ye Faithful’
Looks like we’re in for some backstory as to who Cicada really is and how he came to have the piece of the satellite core. We know that his mission is to kill all metahumans because he believes that they shouldn’t even exist. His daughter is in the hospital in a coma due to the Enlightenment, but it’s unknown if she was hit with the shrapnel her father now carries. There’s a shot of the metal lightning bolt on a tray and I’m guessing it’s from when it is removed. I still think that Cicada is the one who was hit with the piece just because of the severity of his wound and the fact that he is gaining a bunch of metahuman abilities. Perhaps his daughter was stuck underneath something following the incident and he was trying to save her, which is how he was wounded. Lots of possibilities, but we will finally be getting some answers come Tuesday.
The trailer also shows that Flash is in danger. Cicada doesn’t seem to care anymore that he is a father, which is what stopped him from killing Barry the first time. It is now his mission to take out the speedster, and unless Barry is going to fake his death like Cisco, Cicada won’t stop until he’s dead. Nora will do everything she can to save her father, but will it be enough? Her continued presence in the past is likely just making things worse as the timeline starts to deviate.
