THE FLASH Showrunner Comments On What To Expect From Tonight's Season Five Finale

With another season coming to an end, The Flash Showrunner Todd Helbing has decided to sit down & pique fans' interests by commenting on what is to be expected both tonight and in the future. Check it out.

Fans of The Flash who have been around since season one have seen the show go many places, and take on many forms of Wells. With Harry, Sherloque, and HR as allies, it can be easy to forget that the very first Wells that was ever a part of the team was actually Eobard Thawne in disguise.

Now, after what felt like a very long seasonal arc, it looks like fans who were hoping to see the return of Thawne are about to get their wish.

Based on the way the story is set up, Barry really doesn't have many options, according to showrunner Todd Helbing.

With Barry, he hates Thawne for what he did to his family, but if it comes to stopping Thawne or saving thousands of people, he's a good guy, so he's always going to choose the better of two evils... sort of put his own personal vendetta aside and save other people.

That certainly sounds like the Barry Allen we have grown to know and love. Unfortunately for the Fastest Man Alive, he has been put in this horrible position by someone he loves more than anything in the world: his daughter.

We talked a lot about this when we were breaking the finale episode and the back half of the season. It felt like our characters, one way or the other, there's a lot of [consequences] for Barry, and for everybody else... I'll say this, there's probably more consequences one way or another than we've ever done on the show.

Does that mean character deaths, or could this be leading into some other sort of "crisis"?

There's a big thing in this episode that tees up the rest of the Crisis arc for next season. We've been laying Easter eggs the back half of this season, especially, but there's no way you're going to miss this one.

Wel, it looks like there's an awful lot to look forward to in this season finale of The Flash. Will you be tuning in?
