Published 5 years ago
After a few weeks of hiatus, CW’s “The Flash” is back on air. With so many questions left to be answered, “The Flash” draws closer to the season 3 finale on May 23. In it, Team Flash is seen in a final showdown with Killer Frost and Savitar, and find out the latter’s real identity. This has been in the minds of all fans, and to be honest, fans can’t really wait to see the character being unveiled.
Savitar’s identity has been debated for the past few months, with many fans narrowing it down to two possibilities—Julian Albert and Barry Allen himself, who has traveled back in time from 2056. If this is the case, then the “Crisis on Infinite Earths” storyline for the series will definitely end on a roll. However, it has been confirmed that “The Flash” season 3 will conclude with a major cliffhanger.
The Flash Finale Cliffhanger Revealed Through Synopsis
In an official release by TVLine, the synopses for the final two episodes in season 3 of “The Flash” confirms that the revelation of Savitar’s identity will send out repercussions throughout the entire series. Check out the synopses below:
PRE-FINALE: Barry travels to 2024 to find out Savitar’s identity, where he encounters future versions of himself as well as his Team Flash friends. Upon returning to the present, Barry & Co. meet a scientist (House’s Anne Dudek) who may be the key to stopping Savitar, but they must — literally, and with great difficulty — fight to keep Killer Frost from getting to her first. Afterward, Caitlin’s icy alter ego makes an interesting proposal.
SEASON FINALE (MAY 23): After discovering Savitar’s true identity, Team Flash prepares for a final, epic battle with the God of Speed… while struggling with a major setback. Expect a season-ending cliffhanger that will leave viewers — and the heroes — questioning how they will move forward in Season 4.
Could The Savitar Theories Be True?
The possibility of Savitar being Barry Allen has grown major popularity over the past months. Some of you might even remember this mysterious dialogue in the past: “Jesse Quick. I knew you would come for me… I know everything that happens. I’ve already lived it… I have such plans for you in the future.”
If this does not ring true, however, Savitar could most likely be a time traveler that could coincide with “The Flash’s” ability to do so as well. The most obvious point of reference is on 2014’s debut of “Future Flash” in the DC Comics. Also known as the Cerulean Speedster, Future Flash is an aging Barry Allen who goes back in time to save Wally West from an accident and literally beats up his past self for issues that will happen in Future Flash’s timeline. Given how The CW borrows themes from them new Flash comics and Savitar’s origins, it’s very likely for us to see an older and brooding Barry Allen before the season ends.
“The Flash” airs Tuesdays at 8/9c on The CW.
