SPOILER WARNING: This article contains major spoilers for "Memorabilia," the latest episode of The Flash.
Not every The Flash villain will make it into the Flash Museum's Hall of Villains when it's built at some point in Barry Allen's future. But in "Memorabilia," the latest episode, Barry and Iris enter one of Nora's memories where they got a detailed look at the Museum, including its Hall of Villains, which is located in STAR Labs' training facility.
While Cicada appears to be the exhibit's centerpiece, plenty of other Team Flash villains are represented. For instance, the Thinker's chair gets a whole section to itself. Along the left wall, displays for Dr. Light, Trickster, Zoom and Amunet Black showcase the villains' costumes. Though the right wall is hardly shown, it does boast a section for Reverse-Flash, including his costume.
Unlike the other displays, Cicada's section has video and audio, which begins to play when young Nora stands in front of it. "Who is Cicada?" it asks. "Officials believe he is Orlun Dwyer, a metahuman born in the Enlightenment. But, when Cicada resurfaced in 2024, after the Flash vanished, some were left to speculate that Cicada is not a man at all, but an immortal monster."
"All we know for sure is his body count: 152 victims and rising," it continues. The video then introduces Central City Police Captain David Singh, who offers a few words. "The Flash did everything he could, but Cicada killed more people than Zoom or even the Red Death, and the way the city saw the Flash -- his legacy -- was never the same," he recalled.
Fortunately, Team Flash has enough time to change this future. Hopefully, by the time this moment comes to pass, the Flash Museum's display will show that Cicada was caught after all.
Airing Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW, The Flash stars Grant Gustin, Candice Patton, Carlos Valdes, Danielle Panabaker, Tom Cavanaugh, Jesse L. Martin, Danielle Nicolet, Hartley Sawyer and Jessica Parker Kennedy.
