Candice Patton On How Fans Are Going To React When Savitar’s Identity Is Revealed


This week “The Flash” will take a bit of a break from the Savitar story arc on the show, as it’s set to crossover with “Supergirl” for a musical episode titled “Duet.” The talented cast involved with the musical crossover gives us all reason to believe that it’s going to be excellent, but right now fans of “The Flash” are focused on one thing, and that is uncovering Savitar’s true identity.

There are a lot of fan theories out there as some think it could be HR Wells, Eddie Thawne or Barry Allen from the future. Candice Patton recently spoke to CBR about what Iris West has been through so far in season 3, and she said she believes fans will be surprised when Savitar’s identity is revealed.

“I found out pretty early on who Savitar is. I think fans will be surprised by his identity.”

The second half of “The Flash” season 3 has revolved around Team Flash and their attempts to stop Savitar from killing Iris. As for how Candice Patton feels about the Iris story arc, she’s totally on board.

“I knew it would be a great storyline for Iris. It would give her a reason to be a part of the narrative in a big way, and give her a lot of opportunity for growth throughout the season. That’s something I’ve been waiting for for a while, so it’s nice to give her some depth.”

“The Flash” returns tonight with “Duet.”
