This week in Central City, Ramsey Rosso finally ascended into madness while trying to cure his terminal illness, HLH. The episode began with Ramsey sneaking into Central City General (the city hospital) and stealing 10 liters of blood. He believes he can rebuild his cellular structure with the new blood and Romero’s blood and create a cure.Continue reading “The Flash: There Will Be Blood | 6 x 04 (the CW)”
There were some tearful moments in The Flash season finale, ‘Legacy’. I was hoping for a future Trunks moment like in Dragonball Z. I expected Nora West-Allen to help her dad defeat Cicada II and stop the Reverse Flash from getting out of his time period. After all of that was done I thought she’d go back to the future and after a teary-eyed goodbye, Iris would reveal that she is pregnant.
However, that’s not what happened. It was actually a pretty gloomy episode and barely anything went right for Team Flash. Feel free to go watch the episode before you read any further because I am going to mention spoilers.
In the season finale of The Flash, my entire theory was blown to shreds except for one thing… Eobard Thawne also known as the Reverse Flash became the main villain for Team Flash once again.
What I didn’t expect was for him to get away. We find out in the story that Eobard used Nora to alter the timeline and cause destruction of Cicada’s dagger to the sole key to his freedom. The destruction of the dagger is also the only thing that will save all of the meta-humans on earth from being destroyed.
The dagger ends up being destroyed and Cicada II disappears leaving little Gracie awake from her coma and headed for a new life.
But at the end of the day, Nora was being played from the beginning and it ended up costing her, her very existence. After some villainy exposition from Eobard Thawne, Nora starts to crackle and disappear. Thawne tells Barry she can survive if she goes into the Negative Speedforce like before. However, Nora doesn’t want to live like Thawne and decides to disappear instead.
This entire ending was a shock. Sherlock went back to his earth and Joe West became the captain of Central City Police (apparently the old captain already knew Barry was the Flash but never said anything until he promoted Joe).
But most importantly, Cisco made a very rash decision. After almost getting killed by Cicada earlier in the season and going through an identity crisis about who he is and how he can find love with meta-human powers, he told his girlfriend about Vibe.
She was so understandable. I thought the crisis was averted. But no, after he has a clear huge part to do with almost taking down the Reverse Flash, he decides to take the cure with the help of Caitlin.
Vibe was such an intricate part of Team Flash and he may still want to be helpful from the lab like Iris, but what happens if Cisco wants to quit the team altogether?
Lastly, the biggest change came at the very end of the episode.
The whole purpose for Nora coming to this time was to help fight Cicada and stop her dad from disappearing. Well, it turns out that Nora’s interference has actually changed up the timeline.
In season 6, the Flash will supposedly disappear. A newspaper article popped up on Gideon’s diaplay wall showing 2019 is when the Flash disappears during the crisis. So, Nora’s interfernce effectively sped up Barry’s disappearance.
I thought this season was going to end with some happiness, but it was a lot of gloom. Will next season start off the same way? Will Team Flash be trying to pick up the pieces or creating new ones?
With the Flash, Super Girl, Arrow and DC Legends of Tomorrow in a shared universe, we are expecting newcomer Batwoman to become a mainstay in the DC CW universe or Arrow-verse. We first met Kate Kane/ Batwoman during the 3 part Elseworlds crossover in December 2018 as she aided our heroes with saving the universe.
Ruby Rose will return to her role and take over the vigilante gauntlet in Gotham City as Batwoman airing on the CW. The Arrow series is ending after a shortened season 8 this fall. it maybe a good idea for Batwoman to take over that time slot.
Perhaps Batwoman will join the crossover, Crisis on Infinite Earths, the conclusion of Elseworlds for the 2019 season. It’s possible that Kate Kane’s encounters with Arrow / Oliver Queen during the special will allow him to propel her into the forefront alongside Super Girl and The Flash in the Arrow-verse, figuratively passing on the mantel.
There has been no release date announced yet, but the CW did release a trailer earlier this week.
I’ll be covering the events in Gotham City just like I do in Central City when the time comes.
