* CallBack: [[Recap/TheFlash2014S1E1Pilot Once again]], Barry stops a tornado generated by someone with weather powers, right after being told a variant of [[ArcWords "Run, Barry, run."]] It's even shot the same way as that scene. For bonus points, the person is the niece of the one in the pilot.

Added DiffLines:

* ParentalAbandonment: The running theme of the episode is father-daughter estrangement. Nora is disillusioned of Barry after confronting years of repressed resentment that he gave his life to be the Flash which left her without him. Josalyn is out for revenge against her father for selfishly abandoning her to continue his criminal career. The former is selfless and they reconcile, the latter decidedly not and they don't even meet again after her first break-in.

Added DiffLines:

* EurekaMoment: Sherloque realizes that Grace will probably have a visitor on Thanksgiving. So Cisco hacks the hospital's cameras and he sees Orlin visiting her - and then just to be sure he goes back to see if Orlin is a consistent visitor, which is how they figure out Orlin is Cicada.


Added DiffLines:

* OhCrap: Dr. Ambres is extremely worried when Barry shows up asking for Grace's parents. She's able to hold him off thanks to faked records, but knows it won't last and urges Orlin to stop visiting Grace for pragmatism.

* ThisIsReality: Nora is forced to confront the realities of being a superhero; sometimes, not everybody gets saved and sometimes heroes die on the job. Seeing her dad almost die and then go back into field, is something that really unnerves her - it's one thing growing up without your dad, it's another watching almost die before your eyes. Nora finally realizes ''why'' he takes this risk at the climax when he has to become a human lightning rod to save civilians at the airport.
* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: Dr. Ambres brief anti-metahuman comments contributed to Orlin's increasing anger and brought him into his crusade.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Bowdlerize}}: In-universe. The Flash Museum apparently cleaned up history a little bit, not mentioning how Ronnie died during the Singularity, or all the times that Barry was certain that he was going to die.
