The Flash Brings Back Jessica Parker Kennedy’s XS for 150th Episode
It appears that The Flash season 7 will feature plenty of familiar faces. In a few episodes, the series will celebrate a milestone when it reaches its 15oth episode, which will be the 17th episode of season 7. And it looks like The CW is preparing a big family reunion for the occasion. According to EW, Jessica Parker Kennedy will resume the role of Nora West-Allen, aka XS. In the story, she was introduced as Barry’s and Iris’s daughter, who returned from the future to help her parents on several occasions. Nora made her debut in season 4 and was one of the main protagonists of season 5. However, she was erased from existence after Flash and his daughter defeated Cicadas and Eobard Thawne in the season 5 finale. After that, she was only mentioned from time to time.
The upcoming The Flash 150th episode will also feature Bart Allen, a.k.a. Impulse, who will be played by Jordan Fisher. The CW has opted to change the character’s origin from the comics, and he is now the son (and not the grandson, like in the comics) of the titular hero. Since Bart will be a recurring guest star at least through the end of the season, the producers might choose to follow a similar path for Nora.
After taking a little break, The Flash will return with new adventures on May 4.
