In the final moments of last night’s episode of The Flash, Barry comes to the difficult decision that if he wants to level the playing field between himself and Savitar, the only way to accomplish that is to travel to the year 2024, where Savitar comes from, to find out what indeed happens to Iris and himself and how. And in the trailer for the next episode, we are given a glimpse of, among other things not so positive, Barry in an altered comic book-style costume.
The main differences in the costume’s features that we can see, lie in the lightning bolt belt, which is now yellow and not red, and the cuff design which is reminiscent of the comics which appears to be along the edges of elbow length leather gloves. Since we only briefly see Barry from the waist upward, it can’t yet be determined if there were any changes made to the lower half of his costume such as the boots. Chances are that the Barry in this altered costume is the denizen of 2024 and NOT the present-day Barry. All in all, very cool looking!
Throughout the promo, we witness Barry talking to his future self, who clearly has been beaten down by the hopelessness of the events that, by this time, have already transpired. But whatever these event are exactly and how they affect Team Flash we do not yet know, but it will most assuredly will be interesting to see how this all shakes out for the remainder of the season as we all remain perched at the edge of our seats until the real, true identity of Savitar is at last revealed.
Unfortunately, we will all have to wait much longer than we’d like. “The Once And Future Flash” does not air until April 25, four weeks from today.
