The Flash season 7 is approaching its conclusion, which is set to air later this month. Now, as reported by Comicbook.com, The CW has reveaed the synopsis for the upcoming finale. The episode, titled “Heart of the Matter, Part 2” promises to bring several speedsters into the equation. Barry Allen is going to have some company.
Godspeed is the threat at hand in “Heart of the Matter.” The first part of this two-parter is set to air on July 13, setting the stage for the finale. That episode will also serve as the debut of Jordan Fisher as Bart Allen.
Here is the synopsis for The Flash season 7 finale.
“SEASON FINALE – The Flash (Grant Gustin) enlists a host of speedster allies, including Iris (Candice Patton) and his children from the future—Bart (guest star Jordan Fisher) and Nora West-Allen (guest star Jessica Parker Kennedy) – to end the speedster war and defeat a deadly new adversary: the villainous Godspeed (guest star Karan Oberoi). Marcus Stokes directed the episode written by Eric Wallace & Kelly Wheeler.”
By the time season 7 is over, the show will be at 151 episodes. It is one of the longest-running shows on The CW currently. Especially now that Supernatural is off the air. One might wonder if Grant Gustin and the gang are getting ready to pack it in, that being the case. The network has yet to make an announcement on that front. But season 8 is at least confirmed.
It was recently confirmed that original stars Jesse L. Martin, Candice Patton and Danielle Panabaker had closed deals to return for The Flash season 8. That is good news, as Tom Cavanagh and Carlos Valdes, two more original members of the cast, are departing at the end of this season. That makes the finale all the more important.
Meanwhile, the ArrowVerse, as a whole, has undergone major changes as of late. Arrow wrapped up its run last year, with Black Lightning recently packing it in as well. The CW opted not to move forward with a spin-off titled Painkiller. Supergirl is also due to end after season 6, which is currently airing. That leaves Superman & Lois, Batwoman, Stargirl, The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow. Though that show is getting up there as well. Plus, Naomi, another DC Comics adaptation, was recently handed a series order by the network.
The Flash is executive produced by Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter and Eric Wallace.
The Flash season 7 finale airs July 20.
