The Flash "The Wrath of Savitar"
The STAR Labs team help Barry and Jesse train Wally to confront Savitar. After a successful run, Barry and Iris announce their engagement to the others. Unfortunately, when Wally runs out in the field, he is confronted with a vision of Savitar, leading to fears that he may return. Julian, convinced by a kiss from Caitlin, allows himself to be used to communicate with Savitar once again where they learn about the location of another piece of the Philosopher’s Stone. Barry finds the box he originally threw into the Speed Force in the hands of the acolytes while Wally continues to train. In his frustration, Wally convinces Cisco and HR to give him a vision of the future. From the vision, Wally deduces that Barry only proposed to Iris in order to change the future, leading to an upset Iris to question her and Barry’s future. In the midst of their trouble, Caitlin reveals to Julian that she secretly kept part of the stone.
Julian alerts the rest of the team to this presence of the stone, allowing them to discover that Savitar can still return. With another talk to Savitar through Julian, Barry discovers Savitar is possibly in Central City. Wally later sees a vision of his mother until he realizes it as a trick from Savitar. Wally races off to stop him just as the group discover the stone to be missing. In the city, Wally opens a portal to the Speed Force where he is sucked in, leaving an opening for Savitar to escape. Barry fights off Savitar evenly until Savitar stabs Barry in the chest. Fortunately, Barry manages to break off Savitar’s weapon, giving him enough time to return to STAR Labs for help. The rest of the team help patch up Barry, but the mood of the group is sour with no knowledge of how to find Wally.
- Savitar reveals that HR survives in the future.
- Caitlin and Wally seem to fulfill part of Savitar’s prophecy as Caitlin betrays the group by keeping the stone and Wally disappears into the Speed Force.
