Critic reviews for O Come, All Ye Thankful
Cicada's Origin is dived into in a way which not only fleshes out how he became what he is...but what he sets out to do as well.
This one had some weird moments and the standard non-threatening rogue, but Orlin's backstory and Team Flash learning his identity made this a significant episode.
Fathers and daughters were very much a theme this week in The Flash's (belated) Thanksgiving episode, as Nora grew frustrated with Barry's derring-do, Weather Wizard's little girl stormed Central City and Cicada's backstory was revealed.
Along with telling a compelling story about the burgeoning West-Allen family, we finally got a bit of backstory into what makes the meta serial killer Cicada tick.
