But yeah, as far as I know, she’s gone, for the moment.

...and so am I. I finally finished up the latest season of The Flash and while I enjoyed it due in no small part to Nora and was impressed they went hard with the timeline that saved countless lives but wiped Nora from existence (for now) I simply cannot take fucking Thawne escaping again! Enough. He died first season and while the occasional views of him in time before his death are fun, this has been played out. I don’t need to see another season of trying to get Thawne again. I really don’t.

And the same problem all the Berlanti Universe shows seem to have (save Black Lightning because it has a shorter schedule) continues: The first few episodes matter and the last few episodes matter: in between they tread water like no one’s business. I’ve also had enough of that.
