Well the moment all Flash fans have been waiting for has finally arrived, the identity of the speedster villain Savitar!
*MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD*
Savitar has been revealed at last and he is *drum roll please* leave now if you don’t want to know!
Okay…Savitar is a Future Barry Allen! To be more accurate a scarred and much older Barry Allen.
Now I am sure a lot of people are not surprised by this revelation considering a few important facts and details we knew about Savitar.
For one thing he knew EVERY member of Team Flash intimately, to the point we knew he had to have been a member of the team.
He knew specific details that ONLY Barry knew about, like how Cisco met his evil doppleganger Reverb on Earth 2. Savitar knew about Flashpoint and what would happen to Wally (how Wally got trapped in the speed force), how Caitlin would betray the team and how Iris would die (although that could change).
The big detail that made me think Savitar was a future Barry Allen was how he kept repeating, ” I am the future flash,” but it sounded like a pause in between future and flash to throw people off.
WHAT I LIKED:
-The opening scene showing Barry confront Savitar and reveal he KNOWS who he is.
– Finding out that the scientist Tracy Brand (Anne Dudek) is not yet the genius noble prize winning scientist she will be in four years.
– Caitlin Snow as Killer Frost and how she is now a villain. I wonder how long that will last.
– Seeing how Savitar cares about Caitlin and wants to see her reach her full potential as Killer Frost. He is probably manipulating her but it makes sense that Future Barry would reveal himself to Caitlin.
– Ciso’s intense and emotional speech to Julian about being afraid he will kill Caitlin with his Vibe powers (explaining why he held back when fighting her). Cisco is well aware of how powerful he is and despite Caitlin losing her way, he doesn’t want to hurt her.
– How Caitlin knew EVERY single word Barry was going to say to convince her to come back to the light and also knowing Cisco would hide up in the rafters.
– HR flirting with Tracy and also encouraging her to become the genius scientist she will be in 2021.
– Killer Frost learning to use her powers and using the ice as a surfboard to travel throughout Central City.
– When Barry realizes who Savitar is and we see a montage of all the scenes that foreshadowed it since Savitar said he was from the future.
– When Savitar finally reveals he is in fact a Future Barry Allen who is scarred and much older.
– When Future Barry says: “Like I told you from the beginning I am the future Flash.”
– How much the reveal of Savitar being Future Barry Allen makes sense considering the evidence.
– Not knowing why and how Barry turns into Savitar. I like the mystery.
– The ending scene where Barry Allen and Future Barry are on opposite sides of the screen and we know there is going to be an epic showdown.
WHAT I DISLIKED
– That it took so long for the writers to reveal who Savitar actually is, it seems a little silly to me.
Overall I really enjoyed “I Know Who You Are” and I cannot wait to see how Barry will deal with Savitar knowing he is his own worst enemy!
