'The Flash' Season 7: Will Eva McCulloch suffer from neural dissonance due to her escape from Mirrorverse?
In the Season 6 finale of 'The Flash', Eva McCulloch seems to be getting affected by her switch from the Mirrorverse
Eva's got the itch. That sounds a little too cheery for what she might actually have, though. In the makeshift Season 6 finale of 'The Flash', Eva McCulloch (Efrat Dor) checked off all the items on her to-do list, which pretty much included killing her husband Joseph Carver, despite Barry Allen's (Grant Gustin) best efforts.
Through David Singh, she tried to make a deal with Barry, saying that she would release Iris West (Candice Patton) from the Mirrorverse if he just handed over Carver and stopped trying to protect him. Barry struggled with the idea and was almost tempted by the offer, but took the moral ground later. He almost risked his life to save Carver. However, in a rather brutal turn of events, Eva's glass pieces went through Barry and killed Carver. "I've achieved my goal for today," she says coolly. Seriously, Eva McCulloch is one of the best big bads of the show, after Reverse Flash.
At the end of the episode, Eva takes over McCulloch Technologies. She gives a sad story to the press that she had been held hostage an international crime syndicate, but her husband found and saved her and died tragically in the process. Oh, and she's back as CEO.
She pins the blame squarely on Sue Dearbon (Natalie Dreyfuss) for Carver's murder and pretends to be a distraught wife. Yet, at this press conference, Eva begins to itch - a classic sign of neural dissonance from a long stay in the Mirrorverse, something that Iris was suffering from as well before she vanished into thin air. Could the switch to reality be affecting Eva's mind?
Season 7 will answer several questions about Eva, and hopefully, team Flash can bring her down, before she decides to unleash more hell. She has a couple of metas at her beck and call but more powerful than her actual powers is her ability to manipulate and feed lies to people.
What does Eva really want to do, though? Is she really that terrible? Carver, let's face it, was quite an obnoxious man in the first place. He knew that Iris had been abducted into the Mirrorverse and could honestly care less about what happens to her. Well, he paid the price for it.
