There are a couple of things to be immediately excited about when it comes to The Flash season 5 episode 7. For starters, the November 27 episode is going to bring about Thanksgiving! Beyond that, though, it’s also going to feature a villain who we haven’t seen in a while in Weather Wizard. Liam Mcintyre is going to be back as the character, and this time, he’s not alone: Apparently, he also has a daughter in the Weather Witch with similar powers and a really dark motivation.

Is it a little much to have yet another story about complicated father / daughter relationships, especially since we’ve got that from Barry and Nora plus also Caitlin and her dad? It’s certainly fair to wonder, since it’s really a lot of the same thing all at once. Yet, if the writers think that they have a great story then they have to roll with it; there’s just a reason to have some natural concern about them hitting the same story too hard time and time again.
For some of the first details, check out the full The Flash season 5 episode 7 synopsis below:
THANKSGIVING — While Nora (Jessica Parker Kennedy) grapples with unresolved anger over her father’s disappearance in the future, Barry (Grant Gustin) and Team Flash must stop a powerful new meta, Weather Witch (guest star Reina Hardesty), from killing her own father, Weather Wizard (guest star Liam Mcintyre). Sarah Boyd directed the episode written by Jonathan Butler & Gabriel Garza (#507). Original airdate 11/27/2018.
What makes the Barry / Nora story a little bit tricky at the moment is that it’s a little bit challenging for Barry to know how to be there for her when he doesn’t quite understand why he disappeared in the future in the first place. One of the big internet / comic-book rumors that is out there is this is related eventually to Crisis on Infinite Earths, a story that could be the culmination of the entire Arrowverse in the event that these shows ever made it to that point. At present, it’s unclear if they will ever make it there, but it is certainly an interesting thing to think about … but also something Barry wouldn’t quite understand unless he traveled to the future and witnessed himself prior to his own departure from the world (whatever that means — maybe he dies, or just gets locked up somewhere that forces him to never return home).
Overall, it does feel right for the show to have to tackle these issues eventually.
