‘The Flash’ in crisis! About that CRAZY cliffhanger…

‘The Flash’ EP on “Heartbreaking” Finale Death, Season 2 Speedsters and Villains.

“Fast Enough,” was filled with tears, weddings and time-travel jargon (and maybe some peeks at some super-powered futures for our favorite characters?), but those last 10 minutes blew everything else out of the water. One of the newest members of Team Flash finally became a hero in his own right during The Flash’s freshman finale—but he did so by sacrificing his own life.Barry Allen’s whole life has been shaped by witnessing his mother’s murder as a child, and his father’s subsequent prison sentence after he was wrongly accused of the crime.

Season one concludes Tuesday, with the episode beginning with Barry (Grant Gustin) having captured Reverse-Flash (Tom Cavanagh) and faced with a big decision: Should he travel back in time to save his mother’s life? That question has lingered for much of the season, after Barry learned he (as an adult) was present when his mother died 15 years ago, and also discovering that he can time travel by running really, really fast.

Seeing that the man in yellow was getting the upper hand, Eddie (Rick Cosnett) decided to shoot himself, knowing it would effectively erase his descendant from the timeline. Earlier, Barry made the decision not to prevent his mother Nora’s (Michelle Harrison) death, because doing so would prevent him from becoming The Flash and would mean all the good he’s done as the hero would be undone. With Ronnie (Robbie Amell) by her side, Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) is all for the idea – “The chance to be with someone you love seems pretty cut-and-dried to me.” However, though nobody involved would even remember the difference, Cisco (Carlos Valdes) is upset by the idea that he and Barry may never meet in the parallel universe that would be created by this decision. It seems an easy choice for Barry to go back and save his mother and keep his father from prison, but he knows it means he’d never end up living with Joe (Jesse L. We did the greatest hits of all the scenes that made us cry over the season and put them all in the finale again.” Even before the show’s debut, when Barry stumbled his way over to Starling City, fans of The Flash have known that Barry was on a collision course with his nemesis, Eobard Thawne.

In a chat with The Hollywood Reporter, executive producer Andrew Kreisberg reveals that Cavanagh will remain on the show as a series regular, weighs in on Eddie possibly returning, and teases “a bunch more villains” as well as additional speedsters for season two. Labs team with this final fight.” From a Debra Birnbaum @ Variety.com profile of “Flash” executive producer Greg Berlanti, whose production company also does “Arrow,” “Mysteries of Laura” and the upcoming “Supergirl,” “Blindspot” and “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow:” That comicbook shows are now a success seems a no-brainer, given that they’re all that seems to be scoring in movies, but “Arrow” was a smallscreen breakthrough.

We’ve got the scoop from Flash boss Andrew Kreisberg: ANDREW KREISBERG: As always with these things, they’re literally the worst decisions you can make for yourself personally. Wells/Eobard Thawne (Tom Cavanagh) previously revealed that Barry and Iris end up marrying – but Gustin told PEOPLE at the CW upfronts on Thursday that Barry is not really factoring Iris into his life-changing decision. “As Barry has said – and which I truly think he believes – is that he wants her to be happy and he wants Joe to be happy. It was his passion for the source material that infused the show — along with its successor, “The Flash” — with its emotional heart, compelling narrative and whiz-bang visual effects that have stirred fans and critics alike. When Harrison was about to kill Barry for not changing the past and letting him go back to the future, Eddie shot himself in the chest, saving the Flash but dooming Eddie and Iris’ future together.

If, ultimately, they wouldn’t know the difference if Barry changed the past, he’s not really worried about his relationship with Iris at this point.” Added Gustin, “It’s more about his family and making sure everyone’s going to be okay. The series has been delivering all the delights of Silver Age DC comics—superpowers, weird science, colorful villains, and, yes, a psychic gorilla—without ranging too far into campiness or winking. When we named Eddie’s character and gave him the last name of Thawne, there was a whole subset of the audience that believed he was the Reverse Flash, which was intentional. The Flash’s success has been reassuring to the contingent of comic book fans who wish live-action superheroes were more… okay, let’s just say it: fun. Late night: Jamie Foxx guests on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” (10:34 p.m., WDSU), Bill Murray and Bob Dylan guest on “Late Show With David Letterman” (10:35 p.m., WWL), George Clooney guests on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” (10:35 p.m., WGNO).

The Flash. “And dealing with time travel, logistically that can get very confusing.” At the end of last week’s episode, The Flash – with help from pals Arrow (Stephen Amell) and Firestorm (Robbie Amell) – managed to subdue Dr. You years from now,” Thawne says. “We’re enemies, rivals, opposites, reverses of one another … neither of us was strong enough to defeat the other, until I learned your secret.

While Rick won’t be a regular, Flash is the kind of show between hardcore sci-fi and time travel that I wouldn’t be surprised if this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Eddie Thawne. But the episode just stops there, leaving us wondering whether Barry succeeds in closing the wormhole, or whether we’ll be in a completely alternate universe come season 2.

And what does this mean for all the hints we got of Caitlin and Cisco’s possible futures as Killer Frost and Vibe, or that glimpse of Jay Garrick‘s helmet? It’s also possible season two will see Caitlin transform into the villain Killer Frost, who in the comics has powers similar to X-Men’s Ice Man, except she craves heat (that’s where Firestorm come in handy).

He craves to be understood. “For actors, or for me certainly, it’s not like I’m besieged with opportunity all the time,” Cavanagh said. “That’s sort of the actor’s life. The great thing with our show — you saw it with Colin Donnell and with Caity Lotz [whose deceased Sara is returning for spinoff Legends of Tomorrow]— is just because you are dead doesn’t mean you’re not coming back. It’s not like we get to pick and choose, ‘Maybe I’ll do that, maybe I’ll do this one.’ You don’t know where the opportunity comes. “When it’s something like this, it certainly is very different from other characters I’ve played.

It doesn’t completely obliterate all of their memories of Eddie and everything, but it has the desired effect of “harm to Eddie means harm to Tom Cavanagh’s character.” Eddie has been struggling these last few weeks hearing about the future and about how there is no place for him in the future. To lose somebody like Eddie—who has never been anything but a good guy and is the one who sacrifices himself not just for our characters, but for the world—that’s going to have an impact and it’s not something that’s going to go away right away. Like with a tragedy in any of our lives, every day you get further away from it, it gets a little bit easier, but it’s really about integrating it into your life moving forward. For us, what made it even more heartbreaking is that Eddie didn’t kill himself because he didn’t have anything to live for, he killed himself because he had everything to live for.

Once people come back in season two, they’ll look back at some of these episodes in season one and go, “Oh wait a minute, I see where this came from.” Yeah. We’re really excited. [Executive producer] Greg [Berlanti] and myself and [executive producer] Geoff Johns and the writers, the cast, the crew, the directors — we are so proud of this season of television.

Yeah, now that people have seen the finale, there were some things we’re letting happen faster than people are expecting and there are other things we’re slow playing. You have a love triangle, which we’ve seen a million times in movies and television, but to get a glimpse of the future where you actually hear who the two are that are going to end up together, that puts an interesting wrinkle in that relationship. I read somewhere online, it said, “CW confirms Hawkgirl not in Flash season finale.” I said, “That’s so weird that the CW put out this thing about it. I asked our line producer, “Look, I know this is last minute, but is there anyway we could stage her as part of the crowd?” We picked up that shot.
