'The Flash': Barry & Co. finally confront Wells
It’s the showdown The Flash fans have been waiting for—and this time, it won’t be erased by time travel
During Tuesday’s episode of The Flash, Barry (Grant Gustin) and the rest of his team make a play to confront Wells (Tom Cavanagh) for his role in Nora Allen’s death. Will Wells fall into their trap? EW caught up with executive producer Andrew Kreisberg to get the scoop on the episodes leading up to the finale, in which Iris (Candice Patton) also finally learns a big secret.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Now that Team Flash has found Wells’ lair, what does that confrontation look like?
ANDREW KREISBERG: The whole thrust of [this] week’s episode is Barry having enough information about Wells to realize that he can force a confession out of Wells—that he killed his mom and got his dad out of prison. That really becomes Barry’s overriding concern. Those people who thought that the events of episode 15, when the timeline was altered, was a full and total reset, and that those events didn’t matter, are going to be proven very wrong. It turns out that the key in getting Wells to confess lies is Cisco’s (Carlos Valdes) ability to remember that alternate timeline.
