‘The Flash’ Finale: Should Barry Save His Mother?.

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?

The CW superhero show stands out among its peers as the opposite — and in many ways, the antidote — to the grim and gritty tropes on Fox’s “Gotham” and CW’s “Arrow” (which spun off the show). “The Flash” brought something missing from comic book adaptations, both film and TV — exuberance, a joy in having the ability to help others.There have been a few episodes this season in The CW/DC Comics series that felt like cliffhanger finales, and Danielle Panabaker, who stopped by Access Hollywood recently to preview the last few episodes, said the closer – “Fast Enough” – won’t disappoint. “It’s so flattering that people feel that way because obviously we work our butts off to make the best show possible, so I love that it’s resonating with people, and on top of that, a lot of that credit goes to our writers – our incredible writing staff and they’ve done such a great job throughout the season and they certainly don’t let us down in the finale,” she said. “The finale gives you a lot of the answers you’ve been wanting,” Danielle continued. “There’s a lot of questions about what’s happening between Eddie and Iris and Barry and what’s going on there and who is Eobard Thawne and is he really going to get what he wants and it answers a few questions, but it also gives you a few more big questions too.” At WonderCon back in April, it was teased that fans would see Killer Frost, the villain Danielle’s character, Caitlin Snow, turns into.

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. Grant Gustin was best known for playing a smarmy creep on Fox’s “Glee,” but now it’s hard to imagine anyone else in the role of forensics technician Barry Allen, struck by a stray bolt from a particle accelerator explosion and transformed into a speedster. Realizing that the particle accelerator activating would kill the metahumans within, Barry made arrangements to have them moved to the A.R.G.U.S. prison on Lian Yu. 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. Flash has his allies (Cisco, Caitlin) and now a bona fide Rogue’s Gallery (led by Wentworth Miller’s delightfully snarky Captain Cold, who will be spinning off into CW’s midseason series “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.”) The show has paid homage to the short-lived 1990 prime-time version by casting original star John Wesley Shipp as Barry’s unjustly incarcerated father and brought back co-stars Amanda Pays and Mark Hamill in guest spots. “The Flash” routinely drops Easter eggs for comic book readers. 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. Last week, he and his pals ended up at Ferris Aircraft, and in a bit of throwaway dialogue, we learned it had closed because a pilot had disappeared — that’s a reference to Hal Jordan/Green Lantern. 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.

Wells has an intriguing proposal for the title character in the first-season finale of The Flash, which airs Tuesday, May 19, on CW and CTV. “Any given day may be incredibly overwhelming, because the story can go to so many places,” said Grant Gustin, who plays Barry Allen, a.k.a. 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. The network is not releasing the season finale (Tuesday at 8 p.m. on WLVI, Ch. 56) for review, but judging from teasers, it culminates in the ultimate showdown between 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. But seriously, I have been quite impressed by his performance. “All that duality, as an actor, it’s a joy to play, because you’re trying to approach it from different levels,” Cavanagh said. “Sometimes you succeed and sometimes you don’t. “But one of the tremendous things is to have lines that go, ‘I look forward to seeing you soon.’ You know, stuff like that, which is layered with all sorts of different things.

Martin Stein (Victor Garber) is on board for the spinoff Legends of Tomorrow, which features heroes and villains from The Flash and Arrow, but Ronnie is not among the list of regular characters. 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. 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.
