Finish Line (2008 TV Movie)
Then came season three. I do not understand DC’s fixation with Flashpoint, a miniseries that really doesn’t hold up to examination and was not only the cornerstone for this misfire of a season but will also be felt in the first Flash feature film. The repercussions of Barry’s rash decision at the end of season two, to race back in time and save his mother’s life, had substantial impact on his life and those of others in his world. Then, when he tried to fix it, other changes happened and he spent most of the season moping.

While there’s no shame in saying the cliffhanger that The Flash season 3 left us on will make enduring the summer hiatus difficult, it’s probably safe to assume that very few of us think Barry Allen is gone for good. As you should recall, he willingly entered the Speed Force in the closing moments of “Finish Line” to atone for the guilt that has accompanied him since creating Flashpoint.
In the time since, a fraction of the fanbase has theorized that Wally West, currently Kid Flash, will step up by becoming Central City’s top superhero. Admittedly, there’s nothing wrong with thinking this could pan out because not only has Wally been promoted in the comics before, but he was also the one and only Flash in the TV show’s world of Flashpoint.
TV Line are reporting that Clifford DeVoe Aka The Thinker will be the big bad of next season. Though it’s an unsubstantiated report, with only unnamed “sources” referenced, we have a feeling that the site is on the level with this one. After all, they were right on the money with the identity of Supergirl season 3’s big bad, breaking the news a few days before the official reveal came from The CW, which told us that it’ll be Reign (as played by Odette Annable).
More than that, though, The Thinker has already been referenced a couple of times over the last season of the show.
With its third season, the producers delved deeper into the books for inspiration, incorporating Flashpoint as a way of simultaneously changing the landscape and to show Barry Allen that there are consequences for his actions. Throughout it all, Cisco Ramon and Caitlin Snow finally embraced their destinies as Vibe and Killer Frost, respectively, while a new threat emerged in the form of Savitar, the self-proclaimed God of Speed.

We’ll start off on a rather sad note this week, as Zack Snyder has revealed that he has stepped down from the director’s chair on Justice League due to the passing of his daughter Autumn Snyder, who committed suicide back in March. Snyder had originally intended on completing the movie after a short break, but has now decided to pass on directing duties to The Avengers helmer Joss Whedon,

The Flash Season 3 Episode 23 Review: “Finish Line”
If your memory serves you well, then you’ll remember that in the episode “Abra Kadabra” that aired a few months back, the titular villain casually mentioned a “DeVoe” in the same breath as Eobard Thawne and Hunter Zolomon, citing him as one of Barry Allen’s greatest nemeses. Well, in “Finish Line,” Savitar became the second villain with knowledge of the future to let that name slip, further strengthening the possibility that we’ll see the Thinker come this fall.
Should this pan out
And we reach the Finish Line….
The Flash season 3 ends and there’s a lot to unpack in tonight’s finale. As it tends to do, this episode packed a whole lot of stuff into 41 minutes. First off, Iris did not in fact die, Hr did. He managed to save Iris and use his transmogrification device to trick Savitar into killing him while saving Iris. They set it up last week and I totally didn’t pick up on it; shame on me. Hr, as a character, was a huge boon for this show, his light heartedness, his quick wit and somehow finding a way to fit in. His presence will be missed, but his final curtain was quite a velvet one to draw. His funeral scene was somber, but dignified and he will be missed.
So if Iris didn’t die,

Well, I have to hand it to the DC TV superhero universe. They sure do have some movement on their curve. Between the Supergirl season 2 finale and The Flash's Finish Line the CW has left us with two surprisingly ambiguous endings. But the ambiguity surrounding that Supergirl finale had more to do with other characters and the potential villain for next year. The Flash gave us something a little more immediately pressing... namely, the actual fate of our hero.
There are three massive questions to be answered here. I kind of have an idea of what's going on. Mostly.
Is Barry Allen dead?
What? No! Of course not. Don't you worry about a thing.
For one thing, as we saw, the mysterious newspaper

3.23 Finish Line
I think I can safely say that I am satisfied with The Flash season 3 finale, Finish Line. What I didn't expect was just how seriously they were going to take that Finish Line title, and for the second year in a row, they managed to throw fans a serious curve. More than one, as a matter of fact.
I've written so many variations of this over the last handful of reviews that I hesitate to go back into it one more time, but just in case you're new here: I have been completely on board with the second
As everyone will soon learn in "Finish Line," Savitar is just one problem they'll be facing. And just when they think they can breathe (and laugh and plan their futures), a bigger one pops up.

Why You Should Watch: The CW continues to delight with its DC TV offerings. “The Flash” has long been a subject of critical championing, and we’re intrigued to see what a potential Season 4 might have in store. At the very least, this seems to be a climactic showdown worthy of Barry Allen’s comic book forebears (even if this episode won’t have any musical numbers
