Tonight marks the end of the day-we-say perfect first season of The Flash in what is being described as an “epic” finale.
We recently caught up with stars Grant Gustin, Candice Patton and Carlos Valdes at the network’s Upfront presentation where they teased what we can expect for the finale and the show going into season two!
Check out 5 mini teasers below and be sure to watch The Flash TONIGHT, May 19 @ 8PM on The CW!
1. On Barry’s mission: Grant: “He’s caught Wells. He’s in the containment cell, in the pipeline. Barry feels a little empty after catching him still. It feels incomplete and he lets Wells get into his head a little bit, and manipulate him in the finale again. It sends him down this road that…Barry feels like he made these decisions on his own, but they were kind of Wells’ decisions. And Barry makes the decision to go back and save his mom on the night she was murdered.”
2. On Barry and Iris: Grant: “I think everything’s on the table now. Iris knows Barry is The Flash. She also knows that Barry has these feelings for her. And Barry knows Iris has these feelings for him, but she’s still not wanting to open up about that. She’s still with somebody and Barry respects that. And Barry is more focused right now on his family, even though that does include Iris and Joe in some ways. I think there are just so many things happening that Barry is really focused on his mom and dad.”
Candice: “The thing about Iris and Barry, and even Iris and Joe, is that they’re family and you can only stay mad for so long. The love that those three have for each other kind of overcomes even that huge lie. I think Iris had her moment to be angry, and she was justified being as angry as she was, and I don’t think we need to see that much more. She got everything out and she can try to move on.”

“Had a wonderful morning at CW Upfronts! @CW_network @CW_TheFlash. Time for Netflix and snaaaccckkksss,” Candice wrote on Twitter after the annual event, and after getting in the best selfie ever from Arrow star Emily Bett Rickards.
Emily captioned, “I kidnapped them all.”
FYI: Danielle wore a Veronica Beard dress, Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, with jewelry from Deborah Pagani and Vita Fede.
In “Rogue Air,” as Wells (Tom Cavanagh) once again gets the upper hand on the S.T.A.R. Labs team, Barry realizes he needs to make a big move and reaches out to an old foe, Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller), for help.
Joe (Jesse L. Martin) and Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) warn Barry that Cold can’t be trusted. True to form, Cold has his own agenda that involves the meta-humans trapped in the containment cells.
As things seem to be going from bad to worse, The Flash gets reinforcements — Arrow and Firestorm.
The Flash gets lifted up in the air by a giant gorilla in this amazing stills from tonight’s all-new episode of The Flash.
In “Grodd Lives,” Barry (Grant Gustin) must deal with the Reverse Flash’s (Tom Cavanagh) latest threat to a member of the group.
To make matter worse, Dr. Wells unleashes Grodd on the city in order to distract Barry and the team. Joe (Jesse L. Martin), Barry and Cisco (Carlos Valdes) head down into the sewers to catch Grodd but the gorilla quickly gets the upper hand after he kidnaps Joe.
In “Who is Harrison Wells,” Joe (Jesse L. Martin) and Cisco head to Starling City to continue their investigation of Dr. Wells (Tom Cavanagh).
While in town, the duo enlists the help of Captain Lance (Paul Blackthorne), and Cisco meets the Black Canary, who asks him for a favor.
Meanwhile, back in Central City, Barry (Grant Gustin) races to catch a meta-human named Hannibal Bates (Martin Novotny) who can transform himself into every person he touches — which includes Eddie (Rick Cosnett), Iris (Candice Patton), Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) and even The Flash.
Emily Kinney makes her debut as the Bug-Eyed Bandit in this still from tonight’s all-new episode of The Flash!
In “All Star Team Up,” Barry (Grant Gustin) is surprised when Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards) arrives from Starling City along with her boyfriend, Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh), who flies in as the Atom. They’ve come to visit S.T.A.R. Labs as Ray needs help with his suit.
Their timing turns out to be fortuitous because it’s all hands on deck after a meta human named Brie Larvin (Kinney) unleashes hundreds of robotic bees to attack and kill her former co-workers, including Dr. Tina McGee (Amanda Pays).
