Critic Consensus: The introduction of a terrifying new villain spells trouble for Central City -- and hopefully a worthy big bad to sustain the season.

Season 5 of The Flash continues to run with the momentum that last week's premiere kick-started, balancing the laughs with some serious drama in the form of new Big Bad, Cicada.
After "rewinding" a bit to show us exactly what Cicada did to Gridlock at the close of the premiere...this week's episode spent much of its time exploring the Barry/Nora dynamic.
As always, the season is starting off strong with some compelling story arcs for individual characters and for the team as a whole.
If Season 5 can make Cicada more interesting than villains of the recent past, and fast, the series might be onto something. In the meantime, more XS would help.
