Who is Savitar?

Hey, I’m back everyone! After dealing with my yearly encounter with the plague, I’m finally feeling better today. Hurray for modern medicine and what-not. I think this deserves a surprise appearance from The Penalty Box Band!


“We thought we were fired!”

Okay, on to the real business of the day. If you’re like me, you’re chomping at the bit to see tonight’s Flash so we finally get a look at who is in the Savitar armor. This year feels different with the reveal; Wells as Thawne was pretty heavily teased in season 1 and imposter Garrick/Zoloman as Zoom seemed forced. This year with Savitar, I think they learned from last year’s kinda let down and are going for the gusto.

Remember last year when I confidently declared Eddie Thawne as Zoom? Yeah, I do too. That should’ve happened but alas, it didn’t. However, that leaves us a chance that Eddie is in the armor. At least that’s what a friend of mine thinks. The thought behind Eddie is simple – Barry has screwed with time so much that Eddie is probably alive again and full of bitter. He hates that Barry stole Iris from him and if he can’t have her, no one can. I like that theory a lot actually.

However, my thought is something a bit different. Sticking with the “Barry has screwed time up so much at this point” theory, my guess that the man in the armor is actually… Barry Allen. You’re either laughing at me right now or you jumped up and said, “Dude, I thought the exact same thing!” Hear me out real quick before you exit from the browser.

There is a precedent in the comics that a post-Flashpoint Barry came back in time to murder his way into making things right. That Barry, well his lightning was blue. Also, does no one else find it suspicious that future Barry had no idea who Savitar was? Of course he does, because it’s him!

“Yo Allen, you’re going to turn evil and twisted and the only way for that to happen is for me/you to kill Iris.”

There is one last cryptic piece of evidence. When using Julian as his mouthpiece, Savitar told Barry that “he was the future, Flash.” Take out that comma and he’s actually saying he’s the future Flash. Just sayin.

We will all find out tonight when Barry and team pop up on our TV’s at 8 pm.
