With Season 6 of 'The Flash' coming to an end, there are still a few storylines that need to be tied up and one of them involves Eva McCulloch/Mirror Master (Efrat Dor). The villain made an appearance in the post 'Crisis' finale and has been an invisible threat to the Scarlet Speedster.

With Iris (Candice Patton) and Kamilla Hwang (Victoria Park) trapped in the mirror dimension and their mirror versions taking their place in Team Flash, nobody really knows of these developments as they focus on creating an artificial Speed Force. 

And in a way, that's where 'The Flash' stands out as one the best series of the Arrowverse this season as it splits the team with almost every character coming in with their own missions.

It isn't the all-hands-on-deck situation yet and that gives room for Eva to put whatever plans she has in motion. At this stage, it is fair to call her the biggest threat considering Eobard Thawne/Reverse-Flash has lost his power and in a way is dependent on the artificial Speed Force to regain his speed back. 

The other advantage that Eva has is Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) not having his powers anymore. Plus there is the element of surprise and that works in her favor.  Right now, the only characters who have the faintest of characters about Iris' mirror self are Joe West (Jesse L Martin) and Wally West/Kid Flash (Keiynan Lonsdale).

Joe also finds himself in the center of turmoil in the upcoming episode, 'So Long and Goodnight' and that means another major character in the show gets some spotlight. 

It is pretty evident the show is attempting to bring a sense of closure to some of the long-running plotlines and one of them is the relationship between Sue Dearbon (Natalie Dreyfuss) and Ralph Dibny (Hartley Sawyer).

With Sue set to appear in the next episode, it does look like there will be sparks flying between the duo, but the question of them working together still remains. Coming back to Eva, it is evident she has plans for Barry and bringing in Iris was probably a part of her elaborate schemes.

In the end, she just might be collateral damage and all hopes are on Barry again. If anything, it is clear that Eva is the terror supreme in the second half of the season and her plotline wouldn't end anytime soon. 

'The Flash' Season 6 Episode 16 airs on Tuesday at 8 pm ET on The CW.
