In this edition of DC Round-Up, stars of The Flash discuss the season finale and the fates of four other series are decided.
The Flash’s Jesse L. Martin discussed the finale with Comic Book Resources…
After tonight’s episode, there are only two episodes left this season. What’s on the horizon as we head into the finale?
Particularly in the finale, viewers can expect to see Barry grapple with the notion of really going back in time again to try and save his mom and stop his dad from going to jail. The big story in our finale is, what are the ramifications if he does so? If you go back in time and change one little thing, everything from then on becomes a completely different story.
Barry realizes if he does do this and goes to save his mom, that he won’t have the life that we’ve all seen up until now. It weighs heavily on him, and he asks Joe what he should do. Joe says that if he has the chance to help his mom and dad, then he should do so. The gist of the episode is whether he does or not, and what kind of changes that would make.
In an interview with TVLine, The Flash‘s Rick Cosnett previewed changes for his alter ego as the season comes to a close…
TVLINE | Viewers know Eddie as a good guy, but given what he’s learned and how much time he’s spending with Eobard, how malleable are his allegiances?
Very malleable. They are related. They are cut from the same cloth in a sense. … Eddie has a pretty big backbone. He talks back to Eobard. They have the same sort of strength of character underneath it all. Of course, Eddie’s having to deal with so much information at one time. At the moment, his cogs are spinning really fast, and he’s at a crossroads now of what to do, whether he takes this information about Iris and Barry and him not becoming anything in a positive way or a negative way or tries to change things. The power really is in his own hands, but whether Eddie knows that or not, I can’t say.
TVLINE | Does it inspire Eddie to step up his game, knowing that he doesn’t amount to much?
Well, it definitely gives him the option. We’re going to see that play out. There’s a big surprise coming up in the finale. I’m a really big part of the whole process. It’s going to be a really cool ending.
