In a Flash-tacular season finale we got showered with Easter eggs from all of the CW's insane plans for their DC universe

Spoiler Alert: I'm going to be talking about the season finale of The Flash. If you haven't watched it, you probably don't want to read any further.

The first 80% of this week's season finale for The Flash had Barry hmm'ing and haww'ing over whether or not he should actually go back in time to save his mother or just let her die. I get that it was a big decision. However, it made for bad television. Thankfully, the last 20% of the show was FANTASTIC and the Speed Force scene (as Barry takes the plunge back into time)? It's full of Easter eggs for future stuff that's already been filmed or is in the works. In the video made by Youtuber Wild Jr, he slows down the frames so you can actually see what's going on in the whole tunneling effect of traveling back in time (eat your heart out Marty McFly).

First up on the left you see Barry moving in with the West family. This is nothing special in and of itself because we have already seen that happening. Then on the right appears Dr. Caitlyn Snow as Killer Frost. Here's what she looks like:
As you may or may not know, in September 2013 Killer Frost appeared on the cover of Forever Evil #1, and she was part of the storyline. In it, Dr. Caitlin Snow is a scientist sent to S.T.A.R. Labs Outpost #72 in the arctic to work on a thermodynamic engine whose creator committed suicide, and she soon discovers the place has been infiltrated by H.I.V.E. agents. When they tried to kill her inside the engine, she frantically rips off the coolant system merging her body with the ice. Transformed into a heat vampire, she continues to search for other sources of heat, which inevitably leads to her discovering that Ronnie (Firestorm) can blast her with heat (Ronnie is Caitlyn's husband) and temporarily heal her condition. I can only guess that Eddie Thawne killing himself has changed everything. S.T.A.R. Labs is probably operated by the real Harrison Wells now, and the Flash's entire history is going to change now. So it's going to be like this entire season never happened.

In case you haven't figured it out yet, the Flash's storyline is pure insanity to follow.

Okay, more Easter eggs from the video. We got a look at "The Flash" museum, a look at Barry as a prisoner in Iron Heights with his father, Henry Allen, visiting him instead of the other way around, a portion from the Legends of Tomorrow trailer, the night Nora Allen died, and Jay Garrick's Flash helmet. Jay Garrick was the first Flash in the Golden Age & during World War 2. Jay is from the parallel universe of Earth 2 and has never existed in Barry's universe.

So if you made it this far, you probably watch the show. What did you think of season one?

I won't be blogging Monday as it's a holiday. Sorry I was absent Wednesday, but I just wasn't feeling good and wasn't up to blogging. Have a good long weekend.


  1. Why weren't all those science geeks on the show worried about a paradox that would destroy the universe? That's what they ended up creating when Eddie went all Looper and killed himself. So now if Eobard Thawne never existed, how could he go back in time to create the Flash?

  2. How am I the only one to comment so far?

  3. Yes, same question. If Eobard Thawne never existed, how did any of season one happen? I certainly hope they explain all of this to my satisfaction. As I don't read the comic books, it's all TV show for me.

    I didn't get any of that from the tunnel scene, but then again I have a really bad habit of knitting while watching TV, so I don't "see" everything.

  4. Whoa! I didn't notice Emma Frost in that scene. Cool.

    Hey, I saw Rick Cosnett at Wizard World Comic Con here in town over the weekend. I called out to him: "Eddie, you can't be dead!" And he flashed me a smile.

  5. Hope you're feeling better, Mike my dear.
