"Show her it's okay not to be perfect coming out of the gate. There's no shortcuts. Takes time to get things right. And that's not a failure. That's life. And also, show her that no matter what, you're always gonna love her. That's what parents do."
Joe West to Barry Allen on training Nora
"Blocked" is the second episode of the fifth season of The Flash, and the ninety-fourth episode overall. It aired on October 16, 2018.


As Barry helps his daughter, Nora, become a better speedster, he and Team Flash also track down a meta stealing high-tech weapons, only to cross paths with a new foe named Cicada, who is hunting the very same meta with nefarious intent.[src]



  • Barry and Joe talk about Barry's 4th grade science fair, which is said to have occurred during the first year Joe took him in following Nora Allen's death. However, Nora died when Barry was 11,[1] meaning that the science fair incident would've happened when Barry was in 5th or 6th grade.
