The CW has released 16 new images for the upcoming Flash season 4 finale. The episode is called ‘We Are the Flash’, a sentiment that Iris (Candice Patton) tried to get across earlier in the season and goes with the idea that Barry (Grant Gustin) doesn’t have to shoulder the burden of protecting Central City on his own. Executive producer Todd Helbing has promised an Inception-like battle between the Flash and the Thinker, but we don’t get to see much of that in the still images — possibly because it will be heavily CGI.
Here is the synopsis for We Are the Flash:
SEASON FINALE — Team Flash gets help from a surprising ally in their battle against DeVoe (Neil Sandilands). David McWhirter directed the episode written by Todd Helbing & Eric Wallace (#423). Original airdate 5/22/2018.
There’s not a lot we can take away from the photos below besides the fact that Marlize DeVoe (Kim Engelbrecht) appears to be working with the team. Cecile Horton (Danielle Nicolet) is in a lot of shots and appears to be close to giving birth, which lines up with the date the Mysterious Girl (Jessica Parker Kennedy) gave a few weeks back. The one really interesting thing to me has to do with the image of the Thinker, aka Clifford DeVoe (Neil Sandilands). We know that Barry is going to go into his mind to confront him, but then why is he back in the chair in DeVoe’s mind? Is that how he still sees himself even after gaining all the powers he has?
The Flash season 4 finale will air Tuesday, May 22nd at 8 p.m. ET on the CW.
