The biggest mystery in Season 3 of The Flash has been the character of Savitar, the new big bad for this year as Team Flash still don’t know who is behind the armor. While Savitar have been giving a few hints here and there throughout the third season, his identity still remains a secret.
In the latest edition of TV Line’s Inside Line, Matt Mitovich was asked by a fan when we might find out who is behind the mask. Mitovich recently spoke with Danielle Panabaker and Grant Gustin who plays Caitlin Snow and Barry Allen respectively and both of them gave two very different answers to that question. Panabaker stated that different characters will find out who Savitar actually is while not being so sure if the viewers will get to find out just as soon.
“Slowly, different characters are going to learn who Savitar is. But I don’t know if the audience is going to be told anytime soon.”
Gustin went on to explain that the reveal of Savitar will be quite different from the reveal of previous speedster villains like Reverse-Flash in Season 1 and Zoom in Season 2. According to Gustin, whoever is behind the mask, will be someone that we won’t see coming at all.
“It’s not the same as past reveals. With Zoom and Reverse-Flash, the audience was starting to realize before we all started to piece it together. But I don’t know how you would know this year. And when you find out, it’s like, ‘Oh. My. God!’ There are really no secrets or hints leading up to to it.”
