Catch up to The Flash and the ending of season 3.
The Flash Season 3 started with a bang, and now we're deep into the consequences of this post-Flashpoint timeline. What is Savitar planning, and will Caitlin become the villain Killer Frost? It's difficult to keep up with all the news, rumors, and spoilers, so we've compiled a handy guide to prepare you for CW's The Flash Season 3.
'The Flash' Season 3 News, Rumors & Spoilers
After our three week break from The Flash, we're ready to speed back to Central City and discover Savitar's true identity. But we shouldn't expect things to be all wrapped up and resolved by the finale, as TVLine have just revealed that Season 3 will end on a cliffhanger — the show's first.
PRE-FINALE: Barry travels to 2024 to find out Savitar’s identity, where he encounters future versions of himself as well as his Team Flash friends. Upon returning to the present, Barry & Co. meet a scientist (House’s Anne Dudek) who may be the key to stopping Savitar, but they must — literally, and with great difficulty — fight to keep Killer Frost from getting to her first. Afterward, Caitlin’s icy alter ego makes an interesting proposal.SEASON FINALE (MAY 23): After discovering Savitar’s true identity, Team Flash prepares for a final, epic battle with the God of Speed… while struggling with a major setback. Expect a season-ending cliffhanger that will leave viewers — and the heroes — questioning how they will move forward in Season 4.
This total cliffhanger is the biggest gamechanger since Barry reset the timeline at the end of Season 3. Unlike that episode, which saw Zoon defeated and the major conflicts of the season resolved, the final episode of Season 3 may leave the Savitar plotline hanging, meaning we have even longer to wait until we find out how this cliffhanger affects Team Flash — and the #Arrowverse as a whole. I don't know about you, but my money's on Killer Frost becoming the show's main villain in Season 4.
He may not have learned Savitar's identity, but Barry has plenty of trouble on his hands after the shocking ending of "Abra Kadabra" saw Caitlin Snow die, then transform into Killer Frost. After an entire season's worth of dancing around Caitlin's destiny, it's satisfying to see her finally become her villainous alter ego. And this time, as executive producer Aaron Helbing tells Entertainment Weekly, Killer Frost's transformation is going to stick.
"She’s a very, very formidable adversary. She has knowledge of everybody because she’s been friends with them, so she’s really going toward the dark side and we’re going for it."
While Grant Gustin assured EW that Barry would try and empathize with Killer Frost, Carlos Valdes stressed that there will be some surprises along the way.
"Some things are going to happen that the team won’t see coming. There’s only so much preparedness that you can have with things like this."
Helbing also confirmed that Vibe and Killer Frost's duel would take place before Season 3 ends. Meanwhile, a promo for "The Once And Future Flash" has dropped. This episode will air on April 25th.
The Flash Season 4 will finally break from tradition and feature a main villain who is not a speedster. After years of following the same format, this is excellent news, and we're left wondering who the villain will be...
