About this Episode

Team Flash reads Nora's diary and learns that she discovered her powers and her relation to the Flash after subsequent encounters with two speedsters: Godspeed and Thawne. Flashforwards show Nora working as a forensic scientist like her father. After being hit by Godspeed, Nora discovers she had a chip implanted into her that dampened her powers, which causes a rift between her and her mother. After Godspeed's citywide rampage kills Nora's best friend and co-worker Lia, Thawne helps Nora control her newfound powers and defeat the rampaging speedster. Thawne then becomes her mentor as he did with Barry. With Thawne's help, Nora finds the Time Vault, where she learns that her father was the Flash. In the present, Iris releases Nora from the pipeline out of guilt, after learning of her future self's deception of their daughter, but Barry sends her home out of distrust and without Iris's consent. Barry then visits Thawne at Iron Heights, glad that he is awaiting execution for his crimes.
