'The Flash' Season 8 Episode 4: Are Thawne and Barry set for the ultimate showdown?
Season 8 of ‘The Flash’ is getting intense with each episode and it’s becoming more and more clear that Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) is in for the fight of his life. The reason we say this is because he will be going up against his own friends to safeguard everyone’s future. However, it won’t be an easy task for him and we saw a glimpse of it during the end moments of Episode 3.
During the final moments of Episode 3, we saw The Flash and Black Lightning (Cress Williams) getting to fight Despero (Tony Curran). Earlier, Barry wanted Jefferson to take all his powers because of the future that Despero showed him. He believes that if he won’t have his powers with him, then he won’t be able to hurt anyone. He tells Jefferson about the future and that’s when Jefferson stops taking his powers. Barry gets frustrated starts attacking Jefferson and that’s when Despero makes an entrance. A few moments later, Iris also reaches there and tells Despero that someone has been messing with the timeline and his father might still be alive.
Jefferson keeps Despero at bay as Barry travels to the future. As soon as he reaches the future, he enters a venue where a ceremony is taking place. Shockingly, he sees Thawne calling Iris the “love of his life” while all of Barry’s friends are happy about it. Everyone is shocked to see Barry there and it seems Barry would have to fight his own friends.
‘The Flash’ Season 8 Episode 4 Spoilers: Will Barry don the Yellow suit?
It seems that Reverse-Flash will be a big part of the show from now on. The Reverse-Flash will be dangerous than ever because of Barry’s leveled-up state. According to the photos, Barry will be donning the Yellow costume while Thawne will be wearing the iconic Red suit. Meanwhile, the promo shows Barry and Thawne coming face to face for the ultimate showdown. Barry asks Thawne about the things he did for all this. Thawne says that he did everything that he always wanted to do. We also get to know that Barry will be going up against Team Flash, Batwoman, Ryan Choi, and Sentinel to set everything straight.
The promo ends with a background voice saying, “I won. I finally won. Who’s faster now?” Seems it was Thawne who was saying those lines while fighting Barry. It’ll be interesting to see Iris’s reaction when the fight starts. Her reaction at the end of Episode 3 made us realize that Barry did something bad that even she started hating him.
Whatever happens in Episode 4, we know that we are in for an epic fight between Barry and Thawne. Will Barry’s Reverse-Flash finally be able to change the future? Or he will lose his mind in the process and do something that he’s not supposed to do? Well, let’s see what happens.
‘The Flash’ Season 8 returns to The CW with a new episode every Tuesday at 8 pm EST.
