The secret is officially out! After last week’s episode “Who is Harrison Wells?”, Team Flash is finally united in the knowledge that who Harrison Wells is isn’t really Harrison Wells at all. When Cisco discovered the blueprints that led him, Barry and Caitlin to Dr. Well’s super-secret lair of lies, the cat was out of the bag. And now it’s time for the final showdown.
With only four episodes left in the season, the time has come for Team Flash to confront the man that lied to them for so long and for Barry to exact justice on the man who killed his mother (and hopefully clear his father’s name in the process).

Is it just me, or does that final shot of Reverse Flash look like it might be someone other than Tom Cavanagh? I detect a twist in our midst. And that’s to be expected at this point. The Flash has kept viewers on their toes for most of the first season, delivering story payoff in unexpected ways. Of course, the one thing fans have suspected from day one was that something just wasn’t right with Dr. Wells. The series has taken time with that arc, peppering hints and discoveries throughout the season, and now that it’s drawing to a close, we’re finally getting some answers.
Creators Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg have done a great job of keeping the narrative arcs of each Arrow season self-contained, so I’m looking forward to a satisfying resolution as The Flash draws to a close. What do you think? How would you like to see the final episodes play out?
The Flash airs on Tuesday nights on The CW.
