The Flash Season 8 Armageddon Part 4 Overview: Bring on The Bad Guys?
Now that Tony Curran's Despero has laid out the reason why an alien invasion is looking to take out Barry (Grant Gustin), Barry has seven days to prove he's not the man Despero thinks he is. Of course, that could also mean that in seven days Barry confirms what Despero warned about. Barry will be driven mad by what's about to happen to him and that he will bring about the destruction of the planet in 2031- and that's definitely not a good thing. So that's where things stand with The CW's The Flash "Armageddon" heading into its second chapter this week. But with Barry busy getting sound advice & serious back-up from Brandon Routh's Ray Palmer aka The Atom this week and looking to Cress Williams' Jefferson Pierce aka Black Lightning for more next week, now seems like a perfect opportunity to take a look at the penultimate episode of the long-running Arrowverse series' five-part special event. That's right, the official overview for "Armageddon, Part 4" has been released and it's a line-up of some familiar faces (possibly) in some unfamiliar roles. If you're not interested in spoilers, then just know that the episode includes Eobard Thawne (Tom Cavanagh), Damien Darhk (Neal McDonough), Batwoman (Javicia Leslie), Sentinel (Chyler Leigh), Ryan Choi (Osric Chau) & more. Otherwise, consider this the "MINOR SPOILERS AHEAD!" sign officially on as we lay down an image spoiler buffer…
Now here's a look back at the official trailer for the eighth season of The CW's The Flash, followed by the updated overviews for "Armageddon" that now include Parts 2-4:
