What lies ahead on The Flash season 5 episode 12? This is going to be the third episode of the new year and with that, we’re going to have a chance to really see the show tackle some super-meaty material. Not only that, but there’s a real chance that Barry and Iris may finally learn what sort of secrets Nora has been keeping from them for a better part of this season … with the big one being about the Reverse-Flash. Sherloque has always been suspicious of her and as it turns out, there’s a good reason for that.

For some preliminary information as to what’s coming, we simply suggest that you check out the official The Flash season 5 episode 12 synopsis below:
BARRY AND IRIS LOOK INTO NORA’S MEMORIES — When Sherloque (Tom Cavanagh) wants to use a memory machine on Barry (Grant Gustin) and Nora (Jessica Parker Kennedy) to help gain access to Grace’s memories, Nora panics, fearing her parents will find out the secrets she’s been keeping from them. Nora secretly decides to use the machine on her own which ends in disaster after she gets trapped inside Grace’s mind. Barry and Iris go in after their daughter and Iris is brokenhearted by what she finds. Meanwhile, Ralph (Hartley Sawyer) tricks Cisco (Carlos Valdes) into going out for a night out on the town. Rebecca Johnson directed the episode written by Sam Chalsen & Kristen Kim (#512). Original airdate 1/29/2019.
There is going to be a really painful part of this episode given that Iris and Barry may have to confront some of what happened to Nora in the time after Barry disappeared. It really could give them a sense of empathy, but then also anger if they do discover what the Reverse-Flash has been doing. He may have manipulated her and with that, they may not have anything to be mad at their daughter about.
As for Dibny…
It feels like the show intentionally is putting the Ralph / Cisco story in here to try and lighten the mood and we get that, especially since these guys are both single and they may think that they deserve a chance to have a little bit of fun. While we don’t want this show to be just about romance, it would be nice if one of the STAR Labs people, beyond Barry and Iris, did have a new love interest before the end of the year.
