Grant Gustin Says ‘The Flash’ Season 6 Finale Originally Involved Reverse-Flash

The Flash star Grant Gustin has revealed that the show’s season six finally originally involved the Reverse-Flash.

Grant Gustin’s The Flash has had a bit of a rough time this season. Most notably, Barry Allen has had to deal with the events of the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover that almost got him killed and saw the death of his longtime-friend and fellow superhero Oliver Queen. Unfortunately, the Crisis and the creation of the new multiverse resulted in the return of an old foe.

Earlier this season, the Reverse-Flash’s spirit reappeared and attempted to possess one of The Flash’s allies. Ultimately, team Flash was able to drive the Reverse-Flash’s spirit away and expel it as negative tachyons. However, this wasn’t the last we were supposed to see of the Reverse-Flash this season.

While speaking to TV Line, Grant Gustin revealed that the Reverse-Flash was supposed to appear as part of a cliff-hanger ending for The Flash‘s season six finale. Unfortunately, due to the delays brought about by the coronavirus, the finale was altered and will end an episode sooner than originally planned. Here’s what Gustin had to say on the matter:

“There was going to be a big Thawne cliffhanger at the end of what this season would have been, but that’s not going to be the cliffhanger we get. [Episode] 619, “Success Is Assured,” is going to end up being our finale, so we’re going to have a different cliffhanger than originally planned. But the cliffhanger at the end of 619 does serve as a pretty good finale.”

What do you think? Are you disappointed that this season won’t end with the Reverse-Flash twist? Let us know in the comments!

Grant Gustin’s The Flash will return in the upcoming episode “So Long and Goodnight.”  You can read the official synopsis below:
