A new villain will disrupt Barry Allen’s life in The Flash season 3 episode 18, but he also has something that The Flash wants – Savitar’s true identity.
Abra Kadabra (David Dastmalchian) will arrive in Central City from Earth-19. He will offer something to The Flash (Grant Gustin) that he may not turn down – Savitar’s identity. The deal will be the God of Speed’s real identity in exchange for the magician’s freedom.
Will Barry trust an enemy? In the preview for the upcoming episode, Abra Kadabra is seen teasing Barry that he and The Flash have been enemies for years.
But since Barry is desperate to save Iris (Candice Patton), he will consider taking the sorcerer’s deal. However, Gypsy (Jessica Camacho) breaches in to take the villain for her own reasons.
During their fight, Abra Kadabra manages to escape. Barry is furious that Gypsy interfered with his plan. Gypsy, however, refuses to back down and this will force Cisco (Carlos Valdes) to take sides. In the sneak peek for The Flash season 3 episode 18, it looks like the Vibe will stand by Gypsy’s side.
Meanwhile, Julian (Tom Felton) is still giving Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) a cold shoulder. But Julian will rush to Caitlin’s side when she gets injured in a battle with Gypsy.
The Big Reveal of Savitar’s Identity
Gustin teased that the revelation of Savitar’s identity is going to be big and different. The actor believed that the God of Speed is the Scarlet Speedster’s biggest challenge so far. He told The Hollywood Reporter:
“I can’t really tease much other than it’s going to be the hardest big bad to take down or even come up with a way to take down. It creates problems for us when we find out his true identity.”
Patton added that fans will be shocked when they found out who Savitar is. She said:
“Fans are going to be shocked. I was shocked when I found out. I was wondering how they could do it and make it work and keep it a secret, but I think fans are going to be really surprised. You won’t see it coming.”
Meanwhile, executive producer Todd Helbing has confirmed that Abra Kadabra has some information about The Flash greatest nemesis. He also explained why they decided to disclose Savitar’s identity late in the series.
Helbing said there is a specific reason why they waited until near the season finale. He agreed with Patton that viewers will be stunned with the big reveal of the villain’s true identity.
