“On Team Flash, everybody’s equally important and everybody matters and everybody needs to have agency, OK? So it’s been a big effort over the last three seasons [as showrunner] to make sure that any of the supporting characters who maybe were just kind of in the background before, got to shine more,” he shared with TV Insider about the poster and the characters.

“And as this poster points out, my oh my, are you in for some surprises in the back half! Some, I’m happy to say, are literally previewed on this poster,” Eric continued. “You will see Allegra — it’s one of my favorite episodes coming up — where she gets to show her stuff and literally saves the day on her own practically. It’s a very intense episode and I’m so happy the way it came out.”

Eric also shared that some intense stuff is coming up.

“The back half of the season, I’m not gonna exaggerate here, some really intense stuff is about to go down. Really intense. And it involves all of the characters. I said at at the beginning of the season, the first graphic-novel storyline was ‘Armageddon,” he dished. “We’re in the middle of our next graphic novel now and I’ll be announcing the title here in a few weeks because the title is ridiculously spoilery, obviously. For the first time ever, this season we have three graphic-novel arcs and Team Flash will never be the same after the second one.”

“We’ve always known the ending of [this] story. I have literally known it for two years and have building and building towards this,” the showrunner said. “As I have been building towards the end of Season 8 — the last three seasons are literally all one big story and it’s leading towards one specific event…I have the Post-it somewhere on my desk. I wrote it down two years ago and went, ‘That’s the end of Season 8.’”

“What I would tell people to do before watching our Episodes 12, 13, and onward is to rewatch the beginning of Season 6. And I wouldn’t watch it for ‘Bloodwork,’ I’d watch it for all the other reasons. The clues have been there the whole time,” he added.

Upcoming episode titles and descriptions also tease that someone they love will be dying…

ICYMI: The Flash will be back for a ninth season, however, one of the main stars is leaving the show as a series regular…
