If you haven't caught up on The Flash season 3, then you may want to avoid reading this until you do.
Ok, you were warned. At the end of season 3 of The Flash, we saw Barry sacrifice himself to the speed force to save Central City and the world. We know, it sucked and we hated it too. We already know that Barry will return in season 4 (well, duh), but we are not aware of when this will happen. New set photos have emerged from the filming of season four, and it shows The Flash in costume. The only problem is that it isn't Barry, but Wally West, as the scarlet speedster this time around. Now, emotions aside, it's pretty obvious why this is.
The Flash is head honcho in Central City. Kid Flash is second fiddle. There are going to be a lot more questions if The Flash leaves opposed to Kid Flash, so Wally decides to trade in his yellow suit for the scarlet one and take up the helm of The Flash until Barry is rescued from the speed force. If I were a betting man, I'm going to say that Barry will be out of the speed force by episode four. We already know the main villain will be The Thinker, aka Clifford Davoe. He was mentioned twice last season by both Abracadabra and Savitar Barry, then confirmed later on by the show's producers. Hopefully we get answers to some of the questions left hanging at the end of season 3. Does Iris play it cool with the save the date cards? Why the hell didn't Garrick step up and go back into the speed force after they rescued him in the first place? How does Davoe's thinking cap override speed so fast that it can alter time??
We'll have to wait to October 10th to find out, but we can't wait. Let us know what you think below.
