This week, within the penultimate episode of The Flash ever, Eddie Thawne reunited with Barry, within the yr 2049 — after which the resurrected detective was confronted with a pivotal resolution.
In “A New World, Half Three,” the scientist previously often called Malcolm Gilmore got here to understand that he’s very a lot the late Eddie Thawne resurrected. However simply as he debated the Korber on what to do subsequent, a singularity appeared within the 2049 sky and sucked away the CCPD captain.
Eddie then made tracks for STAR Labs, to seek the advice of with The Flash. Arriving on the Flash Museum, he realized that Reverse-Flash managed to reside on, even after Eddie gave his life to “finish” his descendant. Eddie then was almost steered very improper by a model of Nora as his personal, blonde daughter. The true Nora whisked him away, after which future Allegra, Chester and Cecile — not precisely wanting 26 years older, any of ’em! — puzzled what to do with Eddie, since their Barry is busy in outer area.
After sending a message to 2049’s Barry by way of the time vault, Nora was subsequent to be possessed by the cobalt crystal. She took Eddie again to his lab at Mercury Labs and started goading him into fulfilling his “goal.” The opposite Thawnes have been “a reasonably large deal,” she famous — or at the least they have been alleged to be. That means, he threw his life away for nothing. Producing the cobalt crystal in her palm, Nora gives Eddie the prospect to reclaim all he misplaced, however he declines. For now.
After Eddie walked away, our Barry rematerialized there in 2049, as soon as once more yanked by way of time by darkish vitality. Or one thing. When Barry went in for a hug from Nora, she zapped him good with the crystal. However earlier than she might go in for the kill shot, Eddie interrupted. Barry bought free and sped Eddie house — to the West home the place Malcom Gilmore lived. Upon seeing a plaque about Malcolm rework into one about Joe, Barry defined that the Unfavorable Velocity Pressure had created this “false actuality” of a house, as a part of its bid to entice resurrected Eddie. Right here, Eddie began getting a bit glitchy, goaded by the NSF in his head into lashing out at Barry for, amongst different issues, stealing his would-be spouse and his life.
Barry needed to depart to tangle with a still-possessed Nora downtown, so Eddie determined to pay 2049 Iris a go to. Iris was fast to glean that he was in actual fact her Eddie, they usually shared a short embrace. Eddie defined that he had a call to make, and he couldn’t do it with out seeing her first — even when it was for the final time. “I simply wish to do the appropriate factor,” he maintained, however the “voice in my head” is complicated him. And when Eddie regards a West-Allen household photograph and sees it rework into one in all him, Iris and Blonde Nora, he decides to stay round. Iris makes clear she isn’t choosing up what Eddie is laying down — “It was at all times Barry, I like Barry, and I like the life that we’ve constructed collectively.”
“You’re going to remorse that,” Eddie hissed, earlier than returning to his lab and being satisfied by the NSF to just accept the cobalt crystal’s energy.
Again downtown, possessed Nora lobbed Barry round good, till 2049’s Cecile (aka a costumed “Advantage”) stepped in and blasted the Unfavorable Velocity Pressure out of Nora. Again at STAR Labs, Chester defined that the purple energy-filled skies weren’t lightning, however the timeline “fracturing.” At a speedy tempo!
Our Barry then stole a second with 2049’s Iris, temped to ask so many issues, together with if she’s glad. “Sure, we’re glad,” she assured him. “Day-after-day I like you greater than I believed potential.” After which the darkish vitality yanked Barry away but once more….
Subsequent cease, sequence finale! Watch the promo above.
