It's The Flash vs Reverse Flash in New "Armageddon Part 5" Poster

When a five-episode mega-event called "Armageddon" kicks off the eighth season of The CW's The Flash, it would almost be a crime to not have Tom Cavanagh's Eobard Thawne aka Reverse Flash at the heart of Barry's (Grant Gustin) woes. With Barry correcting the timelines after some truly twisted machinations on Thawne's part in the previous chapter, "Armageddon Part 5" not only wraps up the epic action but also might give Barry the chance to end things with Thawne… once and for all. And then there's the wildcard in all of this, Katherine McNamara's Mia Queen aka Green Arrow. Dropping "in from the future to save a lost loved one" no matter who or what stands in her way, will Mia play a bigger role in saving the day than any of them realize? With that in mind, The CW has shared a new poster that highlights the Arrowverse's very own "Holmes and Moriarty" in what could be their last run- and for one of them, for good.

With only one chapter to go, here's a look at the promo and episode overview for The CW's The Flash "Armageddon, Part 5":

The Flash Season 8 Episode 5 "Armageddon, Part 5": THE EXCITING CONCLUSION TO THE FIVE PART ARMAGEDDON EVENT BRINGS THE RETURN OF MIA QUEEN – The conclusion to Armageddon presents an opportunity for The Flash (Grant Gustin) to end his lifelong battle with Reverse-Flash (guest star Tom Cavanagh) for good, but the payoff could be too much for Barry and team to handle. Meanwhile, Mia Queen (guest star Katherine McNamara) drops in from the future looking to save a lost loved one, and she won't let anything stand in her way. Menhaj Huda directed the episode written by Kristen Kim.

Joining Team Flash for the five-part event is Brandon Routh's Ray Palmer aka The Atom, Javicia Leslie's Ryan Wilder aka Batwoman, Cress Williams's Jefferson Pierce aka Black Lightning, Chyler Leigh's Alex Danvers aka Sentinel, Kat McNamara's Mia Queen aka Green Arrow, Osric Chau's Ryan Choi aka The Atom, Tom Cavanagh's Eobard Thawne aka Reverse-Flash & Neal McDonough's Damien Darhk.

Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) lived a normal life as a perpetually tardy C.S.I. in the Central City Police Department. But his life changed forever when the S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator exploded, creating a dark-matter lightning storm that struck Barry… bestowing him with superspeed and making him the fastest man alive — The Flash. After stopping the Godspeed War last season, it's six months later and Barry and Iris West-Allen (Candice Patton) are now at the top of their game—both in their careers as superhero and reporter and as a devoted couple. But when the powerful alien Despero unleashes near annihilation on Central City, The Flash and his team—Caitlin Snow/Frost (Danielle Panabaker), Meta-Empath Cecile Horton (Danielle Nicolet), the light-powered meta Allegra Garcia (Kayla Compton), brilliant tech-nerd Chester P. Runk (Brandon McKnight) and retired detective Joe West (Jesse L. Martin)—must once again defy impossible odds to save the day. But their victory is short-lived as two new threats rise from the ashes of "Armageddon," one of which will unleash unforeseen horrors into the lives of Barry and his teammates… and change Team Flash forever.

The CW's The Flash stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen/The Flash, Candice Patton as Iris West-Allen, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow/Killer Frost, Danielle Nicolet as Cecile Horton, Kayla Compton as Allegra Garcia, and Brandon McKnight as Chester P. Runk, with Jesse L. Martin as Detective Joe West. Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and Eric Wallace executive produce. Produced by Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television.
