Really don't know where to begin. This action - packed, adrenaline - rushed, powerful Finale episode had almost every reason for a fan to experience a high level nerdgasm.
After watching this Finale, there were a lot of questions raised. Moreover, most of them go unanswered and give rise to a lot of theories. Well, don't you worry, we'll break 'em together!!!
So here's my TOP 10 List for the best moments in the Finale.
#10 FATHERLY LOVE
This epic, heart-warming conversation between Barry and Joe made everyone teary eyed. An emotional scene for Joe, he might never see Barry as his foster son.
#9 HENRY DOESN'T APPROVE OF BARRY GOING BACK TO THE PAST
This scene was simply brilliant. Henry telling Barry not to go back in time shows his sense of perception and far sightedness. He knows its consequences. Henry loves Bar too much to lose him to become someone else. And changing the past, meddling with nature... Is not right.
#8 RONNIE AND CAITLYN GET MARRIED
Dr. Martin Stein takes the role of a Rabbi and happily conducts the wedding betweem Firestorm and Killer Frost. Oops? :P
Not much to say here, but surely was a very pleasant scene.
#7 BARRY DOESN'T SAVE HIS MOM
That one decision which would have changed everything!!! The decision, that would have caused the FLASHPOINT PARADOX!!!
Barry finally doesn't save his mother, and ends up having the most epic conversation with her. Extremely emotional, it made fans cry all over the world.
-"It's me, mom. Barry."
-"Yeah. I'm your son, Barry. And I got a second chance to come back here, and tell you that Dad and I are okay."
#6 THE FLASH FROM THE FUTURE TELLS BARRY NOT TO SAVE HIS MOM
Just a simple way to put it, Future Barry tells Current Barry not to save their mom, as he might have done that in the past and is aware of the after effects Flashpoint Paradox). So, after doing that, he runs away with the Past Barry (young self) and saves him from the wrath of Reverse Flash who kills their mother in sheer anger.
Phew. The interesting part of this scene is, that with just a few expressions, it conveys a lot of emotions.
#5 CISCO IS A METAHUMAN - VIBE
Thawne reveals to Cisco that he is a metahuman, and that he too was affected by the particle accelerator explosion last year.
"Sensing vibrations and memories from another timeline..." A reference to his powers that will be much more enhanced in the future.
They also have this creepy father-son relationship which keeps up the flow of this episode.
#4 EDDIE TAKES HIS OWN LIFE
This was totally unexpected. Eddie Thawne takes his own life to save the lives of countless others. But what he didn't realise is that he created a HUGE paradox.
Can you guess what that is? Well, it's just a little bit ahead!
#3 BARRY ACCESSES THE SPEEDFORCE - Easter Eggs & Visions From The Future
a) The Flash Museum
Won't it be awesome to see what's inside this museum in near future?!?!!
b) Caitlyn Snow becomes Killer Frost
Although this was kinda expected, we had never seen her actual look.
Looks badass, doesn't she?
#2 CURRENT EASTER EGGS
a) Jay Garrick's Helmet
I literally died during this scene. The biggest WTF moment of this episode. It was hard to recover from it even though I already watched this scene 7 times.
It also hints at other speedsters like Wally and Impulse in the second season! How cool would that be?!
b) New 52 reference
You all must have noticed that. The "1 minute 52 seconds to get back" reference was funny, important and cheesy at the same time.
c) Hawkgirl's Appearance
Even though she barely appeared for just a second, it was great to see her. Future crossovers can be felt!
#1 NEW WORMHOLE CREATED
Okay, this was totally overwhelming. Keeping in mind the way nature acts, it's completely understandable that something like this could happen.
Do you know why the second wormhole was created in the first place? Here's why.
In simple words, EDDIE KILLS HIMSELF = REVERSE FLASH DIES= IMPLIES HE DIDN'T GO IN THE PAST = BARRY'S MOM STILL ALIVE = NEW TIMELINE = CAUSE OF SECOND WORMHOLE = MIND BLOWN.
Hope you liked it! Sorry to have missed out any great moment, I'll try to do a Top 15 if you really think I should!
