Alas, The Flash Will Finally Reveal Savitar’s Identity Next Week

Who is behind the mask?

Hang in there, Team Flash. We’re finally going to learn Savitar’s identity! The catch is that you have to wait one more week. It’s been a long season so far, with the focus on saving Iris from this masked speedster and Barry still not learning his lesson about time travel.

In the latest episode, it was revealed that Killer Frost aligns herself with the big bad because of who he is (and that big spiel about helping her embrace who she really is). She’s entirely convinced, until his removes his mask and her entire demeanor changes. But the question remains: Who is he? We could wait seven more days or be super internet nerds and come up with our own theories right now. Here are the clues so far:

  1. He’s a speedster.
  2. Caitlin seems to know him.

Signs point to Jay Garrick, whichever version of him that might be. Back in season two, Caitlin Snow developed feelings for the former who also turned out to be Zoom. As the most experienced speedster we’ve seen on the show, it makes sense for him to be the most powerful as well.  Others have pointed out that it could also be Barry, which also makes sense but feels a bit cliche. Ronnie’s name also popped up but he was never a speedster so I don’t see how he’d fit into the equation.

Here’s the episode synopsis for next week: “Barry (Grant Gustin) and the team meet Tracy Brand (guest star Anne Dudek), a scientist, who may be the key to stopping Savitar. Unfortunately, Killer Frost (Danielle Panabaker) is also after Tracy so Team Flash must battle their old friend, which proves to be particularly difficult for Cisco (Carlos Valdes). Joe (Jesse L. Martin) and Cecile’s (guest star Danielle Nicolet) relationship takes a big turn.”
