THE FLASH: Mystery Girl Identity Revealed; Plus Details On That Shocking Return, Harry, & The Season 5 Villain

Compared to the last three season finales, tonight's episode ended on a relatively positive note, although it still had a big cliffhanger as we finally learned the identity of that mystery girl...

While many fans had already correctly deciphered the mystery of the mystery girl, tonight's season finale finally confirmed that she is indeed Nora Allen-West (Jessica Parker Kennedy), Barry (Grant Gustin) and Iris' (Candice Patton) speedster daughter from 30 years in the future. 

She formally introduced herself during the episode's closing moments after she crashed Team Flash's victory party to tell her father and the rest of the team of a huge mistake she's made and an even greater coming threat. Entertainment Weekly did learn that while there was something filmed to properly tease the Season 5 villain, it, unfortunately, had to be cut for time. However, according to producer Todd Helbing, that tag will eventually be released to the public and it seems like Comic-Con will be the likely venue.

Helbing briefly elaborates on Nora's mistake and why she chose to come back to this exact time period. "Barry certainly learned his lesson about time travel and the effects that it can have. She comes back for a specific reason, not only to see her parents and meet everybody on the team, which you saw all throughout the season — there’s four specific times that she came back, and you’re gonna learn about why she chose those four times and how they’re gonna play into not only the mistake that she made, but the consequences for somebody like her, a speedster traveling from the future to the past, and what that means for Barry and the team." He also teases her dynamic with the other team members and why she's been warmer to some while colder to others like Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker). "If you go back and watch all of the ways that she interacted with everybody, you can get a nice little sense of what her relationship is with everybody in the future." Speaking of Caitlin, she'll also have a big arc next season as she continues her efforts to reunite with Killer Frost and unlock the mysteries of her family.

Meanwhile, the finale also saw one big return as Barry managed to rescue Ralph (Hartley Sawyer) and one big exit as Harry (Tom Cavanagh) bid farewell to the team and went back home to Earth-2 to reunite with his daughter (Violett Beane). While Ralph's return was always planned, it sounds like Harry may be gone for a while, although that doesn't mean Tom Cavanagh is leaving the series. EW has since confirmed that he'll definitely be back next year, but he'll be tackling a fun new incarnation of Wells.

So, what did you think of the finale? Who do you want to see as the big bad for Season 5? Sound off with your thoughts below!

 
Last season, Barry Allen aka The Flash used his extraordinary abilities to travel back in time and save his mother’s life, and inadvertently created an alternate timeline known as Flashpoint. The phenomenon not only gave birth to the villainous God of Speed known as Savitar, but changed the lives of Caitlin Snow and Wally West forever. With the help of his adoptive father, Detective Joe West, his fiancée Iris West, and his friends at S.T.A.R. Labs – Cisco Ramon and Harrison Wells -- Barry continues to protect the people of Central City from the meta-humans that threaten it. But first, he’ll have to escape the Speed Force – an extra-dimensional entity teeming with unknown dangers – that Barry sacrificed himself to in order to save Central City.
