What does 'course.review_set' in 'add_reviews' function come from?

I can't figure out what does this course.review_set means, I mean it must be a collection of reviews of a particular course but it was not previously defined in the models.

Was struggling to find this out myself. Eventually found in models.py:

class Review(Model):
    course = ForeignKeyField(Course, related_name='review_set')

I think up until this point in the Flask tuts, Kenneth never referred to a FK through the related_name, so I wasn't even aware you could do that :P
