In the third episode of The Flash‘s forthcoming sixth season, “Dead Man Running.” Barry Allen is planning for the Crisis, and possibly for his death. The CW has released the official synopsis for the season, in which Ralph Dibny also has a broad subplot of secrets hidden in his history.
Official Synopsis Out
It’s hard to imagine how The Flash will keep the tension at the same rate in 2020, considering that since the pilot, “Crisis on Infinite Earths” has been practically hovering over the show, and Barry will likely spend the season’s first month worrying about his own death. The official synopsis can be reviewed below.
GET READY FOR A KILLER PARTY – Knowing that Crisis is only weeks away, Barry (Grant Gustin) prepares a member of Team Flash for life without him while hunting a terrifying meta-human with an unquenchable thirst. Meanwhile, Ralph (Hartley Sawyer) uncovers a family secret. Sarah Boyd directed the episode written by Lauren Barnett & Thomas Pound.
Sixth season this fall
The Flash returns for its sixth season this fall, pitting Barry Allen against new and old foes while on an apparent suicide run toward the destiny he has been hoping to avoid since the series premiered. Way back in 2014, fans heard that in the Infinite Earths Crisis, Barry Allen will give his life, helping transform the Anti-Monitor around to save the multiverse.
Timeline changes in the event
The event will take place on May 2024, or so we were all hoping. Because of some timeline changes during the last season of The Flash, Barry’s destiny date has been pushed to December 2019, when all five of The CW’s intertwined DC Comics series will cross over for “Crisis On Infinite Earths,” so viewers will see how Barry attempts to resolve his destiny.
