The Flash has really worked its way into our hearts this year and we can’t wait to see how Barry Allen’s story will progress in a world that brings super-powered enemies every week.

When we last saw him in The Man In the Yellow Suit, the mid-season finale, we had an apparently massive revelation that Barry’s mentor, Professor Wells, may well be the Reverse Flash, the man who killed Barry’s mother and ultimately his nemesis.

But where does this lead to next?

Speaking to EW, Flash actor Grant Gustin reveals that, while we the audience may no longer trust Wells, Barry is still in the dark: “Barry is still defending Wells and still trusting of Wells at this point. There’s a big twist that even surprised me. I’ve seen all the predictions online. No one has predicted the big twist that’s coming at the end of this season.”

Barry was beaten easily by Reverse Flash when they crossed paths, a mistake he does not intend to make twice: “He’s trying to get faster and not just straight up speed, but his agility and maneuvering within it and what he can do with this speed. He has a bar set. He has to be at least as fast as the Reverse Flash. That’s what he wants to focus on, but as per usual, other things start to get in the way and Barry has to focus on other things.”

In related news, executive producer Andrew Kreisberg says the show’s thirteenth episode ‘The Nuclear Man’ will be the big one that will deal with Firestorm and what happened to Ronnie Raymond (Robbie Amell) the night of the explosion.

The Flash returns tomorrow night with S01E10 Revenge of the Rogues.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
