It seems that season five of The Flash features a major continuity error regarding the death of Savitar (Grant Gustin).
At one point during The CW’s The Flash, star Grant Gustin played more than just the titular superhero. Gustin also played a version of the speedster villain Savitar, who appeared in season three of the series. In episode twenty-three of season three, Iris West (Candice Patton) shot Savitar in the back, which caused him to land on the ground before rolling onto his back.
One DC fan took to Reddit to point out that in season five of the series, the death scene is slightly altered. In episode eight of The Flash season five, the death scene is revisited and Savitar doesn’t quite land how he originally did. Instead of falling onto his back and rolling over, Savitar falls onto his stomach after being shot. Check out the post below to see the continuity error in action.
It’s not exactly a story-changing alteration but it does call into question why the deliberate edit was made instead of just reshowing the same footage from two seasons ago. Fans can see the further adventures of the Scarlet Speedster when The Flash returns on The CW starting Tuesday, January 15th.

Matching wits with The Thinker, who by season’s end had harnessed the powers of all twelve bus metas he created, stretched Team Flash to their limits, but with the help of some new allies, Barry Allen (aka The Flash) and company were able to put a stop to the Enlightenment and save Central City once again. However, with the arrival of Barry and Iris’ speedster daughter, Nora, who arrived from the future admitting to having made a “big mistake,” things are anything but status quo. Will parenthood be the challenge that finally slows The Flash down?
The Flash stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen / Flash, Candice Patton as Iris West, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow / Killer Frost, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon / Vibe, Tom Cavanagh as Harrison “Sherloque” Wells, Jesse L. Martin as Joe West, Danielle Nicolet as Cecile Horton, Hartley Sawyer as Ralph Dibny / Elongated Man, Jessica Parker Kennedy as Nora West-Allen, and Chris Klein as Cicada.
