WARNING: In case you missed the title, major spoilers lie ahead.
Robbie Amell, known as Ronnie Raymond/Firestorm/Deathstorm on the CW’s The Flash, revealed a major spoiler for an upcoming episode and it could leave a lot of fans in shock.
While being part of a panel in New Jersey for Heroes and Villains Fan Fest this past weekend, Amell said, “In episode 13, so in a couple weeks, you’ll see me as Deathstorm, and Caitlin as Killer Frost. So I get to come back, and I kill a series regular. So there’s that, I’m probably going to get in trouble for saying that.”
For those of you who don’t remember or need a refresher, Ronnie Raymond sacrificed himself in order to close the singularity in the Season 2 premiere of The Flash. Since then, evil versions of the characters we know and love have been appearing from Earth-2 in order to try to kill The Flash on behalf of Zoom.
While it’ll be interesting to see how different Killer Frost and Deathstorm will be from their Earth-1 counterparts, it remains to be seen where this confrontation will take place. After all, it was revealed a few months ago that our Earth-1 heroes would be traveling to Earth-2 at some part of the season.
What should be considered is who will Deathstorm kill? Out of the main cast, it wouldn’t make sense to kill Barry and Cisco. They can’t kill off Harrison Wells because his revenge arc is far from over and Joe shouldn’t be killed off either since his arc with Wally needs to be finished as well. Perhaps Caitlin can be killed in order to motivate Jay into getting his speed back, but even that’s doubtful. No matter how one looks at it, killing off one of the main characters halfway through the season is ballsy to say the least.
That’s why the meaning behind Amell’s “spoiler” could be that he kills a series regular…on Earth-2. He could kill Earth-2 Barry, Cisco, Joe, or Iris and that would mean he stayed true to his word. It also wouldn’t affect any actual storylines on the show, yet also, provide the fans with a shocking moment. We’re only a couple of weeks away from episode 13, so we’ll find out sooner than later. In the meantime, who do you think will be killed off? Will it be an Earth-1 version of a character? Or will they be from Earth-2?
The Flash airs on the CW every Tuesday night at 8 PM ET.
