The Flash aired its penultimate episode on The CW last night, and we now have a first look at next week's series finale.
Along with a poster featuring an unmasked Barry Allen, a promo confirms the Fastest Man Alive is going to be pitted against many of his greatest foes; those include Reverse-Flash, Zoom, and Savitar and, if that brief shot of Eddie Thawne is any indication, he'll be a pivotal part of whatever's going on with the timeline.
During a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, showrunner Eric Wallace teased what sounds like an epic ending to the long-running series.
"I'm very proud of the whole season, but boy, I can't wait for the fans to see these last episodes," he teased prior to the WGA strike. "I can't wait to unleash them on the world. We have some people that have been with the show since day one, and they gave their greatest performances ever."
"It's just a labor of love all around. The crew, cast, writers, directors, everybody, it's the hardest we've ever worked. Not that we haven't had even bigger episodes because certainly a crossover is bigger, but the commitment to excellence that everybody was bringing with knowing that these were the last batch of Flash episodes was unmatched."
"We were a family," Wallace concludes. "I'm going to miss my Flash family."
The Flash's season 9/series finale is titled "A New World, Part Four," and it will see the Scarlet Speedster tasked with his greatest challenge yet, to save the timeline and save existence. Friends old and new gather for an epic battle to save Central City, one last time.
