Temporary spoilers beneath for The Flash’s newest episode, “Women Night time Out.”
The Flash has had a ton of fascinating villains inflicting havoc in Central Metropolis, however the Season four huge dangerous The Thinker could also be it is most curiously intriguing one but, largely as a result of we know so little about him. Barry is barely extra than simply interested in he who is named DeVoe, and as Season four goes on, it appears to be like like Barry will begin to get obsessive about discovering who The Thinker is, and that mystery will result in some darkish turns. In line with star Grant Gustin:
Barry’s taking it fairly significantly instantly. He begins to, earlier than anyone else on the staff, know for certain that that is our man and begins to turn out to be a bit bit obsessive about getting him, as a result of he does not need issues to get out of hand once more, as they all the time do. . . . Barry’s beginning to get obsessed that that is our man, he realizes that it should get soiled fast, and earlier than it will get soiled he desires to get forward of this man. After which they begin to notice what a difficult foe he will be and completely different than another speedsters we have confronted previously. He is not a speedster, he is one thing we have by no means seen earlier than. Issues are going to take a darkish flip shortly in the course of the 12 months.
I kinda like occupied with Barry Allen in a neo-noir, pulling a fedora brim over his eyes as he steps right into a dive bar searching for details about DeVoe. (After “Women Night time Out,” he can most likely maintain his super-liquor a bit higher.) However Barry will not be the sort of character who discovers details by way of quiet conversations in dimly lit rooms. It is possible going to take one in all Cisco’s depraved sophisticated devices with a view to put a few of these items collectively so far as Thinker’s identification and motives are involved, and it will seemingly come at a time when Group Flash goes by way of one in all its darker patches.
It is not precisely clear how darkish The Flash will get as The Thinker’s thriller continues, however we’re betting DeVoe’s huge plan to destroy The Flash will not be one impressed by birthday muffins and petting zoos. He is certain to be linked to some terrible reminiscence that Barry has, possible involving a useless relative. Or maybe Barry is responsible for some horrible incident that occurred in DeVoe’s life that turned him right into a scarred and blue-tinged baddie with a floating chair that has hologram chess put in in it.
Barry’s obsession will most likely trigger some strife between him and Iris and the remainder of Group Flash, particularly if nobody believes him at first about it being DeVoe. However as long as Iris does not get taken captive but once more, we’re prepared to take care of some extra counseling-worthy issues developing. And in keeping with ComicBook.com, Grant Gustin appears fairly optimistic that the darkish turns will not truly destroy Group Flash in any huge methods.
He is nonetheless Barry and he is hot-headed and when he is certain he is proper, he is cussed. However the staff is in an excellent place this 12 months so we’re not going to see any large hiccups with the staff at this level within the season. They will get better.
