Barry turns to the Speed Force in bid to stop Savitar on The Flash

Cisco Ramone helps Barry Allen aka The Flash tap into the Speed Force

Tonight on The Flash we’ll see Barry Allen aka The Flash going into the Speed Force in an attempt to rescue Kid Flash from being trapped there.

This episode follows directly on from where last week left off.

And with Savitar in the wind and prepping to destroy central city, Barry will need all hands on deck to help defend against the after-effects of Flashpoint.

Which is why he needs to get Kid Flash back.

The teaser for the episode sees Barry in the Speed Force and meeting people from his past.

These people include Leonard Snart aka Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller) who we last saw in Legends Of Tomorrow.

We also see Ronnie Raymond aka Deathstorm (Robbie Amell) as well as Eddie Thorn (Rick Cosnett) who hasn’t been seen since the Season One finale.

And in the preview we catch a glimpse of the silver age Flash aka Wade Garrett (John Wesley Shipp), which is always awesome given that Shipp played Barry Allen in the first go-around of The Flash back in the 1990s.

The question that everyone is still speculating about to an extent is who Savitar is.

Some clues were given in last week’s episode, but I am sure we’ll likely see a few more hints in tonight’s episode.

Savitar could be any number of people. Let’s not forget that Barry took a few chances in his last visit to the Speed Force and with him having created Flashpoint, he’s likely attracted the attention of any number of villainous speedsters.

Also what will Savitar get up to with only Jesse Quick being left behind to defend central city? Will Jesse be able to hold Savitar off long enough to buy Barry time?

Hopefully we’ll get some answers in tonight’s episode.

The Flash airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on The CW.
