After months of questioning who Savitar is, his identity was FINALLY revealed last night and boy was I surprised. DO NOT READ ON IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO KNOW.
In the past, The Flash has always liked their twists, especially when it comes to their villain’s identity. Season 1- Reverse Flash- Wells aka Eobard Thawne, Season 2- Zoom- Jay Garrick aka Hunter Zoloman. The newest cast member is always suspicious, but after Julian (Tom Felton) was unmasked as Alchemy earlier this season he was off the hook, and the mystery lived on, until now….
After a revelation when listening to Joe talk about love, Barry puts together who Savitar truly is-Barry, but from the future. WHAT!
Part of me always joked it would be Barry, but I never thought it would be. After the big reveal, fans were claiming that it was obvious because when Julian channeled Savitar, earlier in the season, he said, “I’m the future Flash.” Other fans state the line could have been taken as, “I’m the future, Flash,” as in addressing Barry, who he was speaking with. Either way the producers did it again and have now left us with even more questions, such as:
How far in the future is this Barry from?
Does he ever capture Savitar (himself) or was that just a story? (If he does capture himself that messes with my mind even more.)
When Barry traveled to the future and met his future-self did he know or was he Savitar already? (I think this is doubtful because that Barry looked emo and Savitar Barry’s face looks partially burned.)
And the big question:
Why would he want to kill the woman he loves?
What will happen in the future to make him do any of this in the first place? How much of the future can you truly change? Okay, so that was more than one question. We’ll just have to wait and see what happens in the remaining three episodes of the season!
The Flash airs Tuesdays at 8 on the CW.
