The Flash Takes A Stand In Season 5 Finale Promo


After tuning in for last night’s episode of The Flash, I must say that I have to hand it to Eobard Thawne. To put it quite succinctly, everything we’ve seen thus far this season has been part of an elaborate plan concocted by him so that he may escape execution in 2049. But depending on how next week’s season finale goes, we could see this show standing alongside Avengers: Endgame so that fans may relentlessly pick apart its time travel logic.

In the meantime, though, the Powers That Be have given us a promo video to chew on, and you can view it at the top of this article. From the look of it, Team Flash will have their hands full because they’ll have to deal with both the Reverse-Flash and Cicada II in the climactic episode. I guess the producers have decided to really up the ante this year.

Maybe it’s just me, but I’m not finished casting suspicion on Nora. If you also watched last night’s installment, then you know how she’s still prone to Negative Speed Force corruption – and her eyes continue lighting up Thawne-style in the above trailer. Who knows, maybe the title of “Legacy” is hinting at her being the next Reverse-Flash and emerging as season 6’s big bad?

At the time of this writing, we’re still waiting for promotional images to be released, but those should hit the web soon enough. And when they do, I’m expecting for them to avoid major spoilers, though it’s entirely possible they may reveal other clues as to where the series may go from here.

For more on “Legacy,” be sure to check out the official synopsis:
