Nevertheless, Barry’s poor judgment and increased readiness to persistently mess around is very prominent in this final season. For instance, Barry is seen to be taking a friendly approach to the Savitar’s problem giving the viewers a tinge of false hope that the problem can be solved amicably.
However, Barry’s friendly approach has a catastrophic end because Savitar returns to Killer Frost and blows up STAR Labs. Barry is then forced to seek the Team’s support during his showdown with the Savitar.
In this particular season, Barry’s actions compared to others’, are so disappointing especially with his numerous disarrays, and this puts the team and family in danger. For instance, he is seen to be sacrificing the Team and family with his decision to go into Speed Force. Barry gave a passionate and inspirational farewell, and the fans can only hope that he will come back more rejuvenated and understanding.
Undeniably, the Finish Line is bizarrely structured with so many fits and starts when compared to other seasons, and this makes the viewers have so many speculations. The viewers are forced to formulate so many different theories following the escape of the villain. An interesting question remains to be whether the team will try and bring Barry back.
The unexpected heartbreak of Iris and whether Wally is going to become the Flash are some of the pulsating questions in this episode. The Flash’s Season 3 finale had some notable flaws that included a perplexing lack of attention on Wally among other organizational eccentricities.
However, Barry’s long journey to freedom is made easy by Team Flash who is very committed to the course. Season 4 id is going to be a little bit happier although the viewers are left speculating on who will wear the Flash costume next!
