The number one biggest villan on The Flash season 3 has been a blue glowing metal creature called, “Savitar.” When Savitar was first introduced, he was an illusion no one could see other than Barry. Now, we learn that this creature is a masked speedster, and everyone has been wondering who really is Savitar? Based on the previous villan revelations, their trusted mentor Harrison Wells was Reverse Flash, the peaceful and harmless newcomer Jay Garrick was Zoom, it’s safe to assume Savitar is someone really close to the team. Let’s look at the most popular theories:
EDDIE THAWNE THEORY
Some people believe the man behind the metal mask is Eddie Thawne, the man who sacrificed himself in Season 1 to save everyone. Hannah Shapiro from Bustle.com wrote that their belief in the theory was based on Rick Cosnett’s instagram picture of his reunion with Team Flash, and also a YouTube video by Dodo Goat, who said that Savitar’s reality in Flashpoint is being erased, forcing him to change everyone back to the Flashpoint timeline and Eddie has been the only one character who hasn’t been shown nor talked about during flashpoint and so he is the most obvious choice. However, there has been a lot of other characters who were not shown in flashpoint, including Ronnie Raymond and Leonard Snart. Also, if his viewpoint on Savitar’s intentions, to stop himself from being erased from the timeline, were true, the list of characters from the other timeline who would want to do that could be endless.
Screenertv.com had another theory, and this one wasn’t any less crazier than the last one. They suggested that Wally could actually be Savitar. They pointed out that Savitar seemed like someone who is extremely jealous of Barry and that’s what Wally has been dealing with all season. They pointed out a part of Savitar’s speech to Barry in the recent episode, in which he said that he created his own powers.
Let’s look at that conversation closely:
When Savitar was conjured up to speak to the team, Joe asked him, “Man, what did we ever do to you?”
Savitar responded with, “You took everything from me! I never asked for any of this, Joe. I am only this way because of you. All of you.”
Barry asked him, “When do we meet?”
He answered, “Not long now. You’re there when I become who I am. “
“You’re saying I caused you to get your speed? I created you?”
“Oh no. I created myself, Barry. Only I could bring out my greatness.
Savitar claimed that he created himself, and that Barry would be there when he finally become who he is. Wally was the person who decided to touch the Philosopher’s Stone, giving himself speed, and Barry was there when he was thrown into the speed force. Could Wally be Savitar?
Collider.com wrote that Savitar wouldn’t be able to manipulate Wally and make him throw the Philosopher’s Stone into the speedforce if he didn’t know Wally’s love of fame and speed personally.
As it gets closer and closer to the revelation, more clues will be revealed. We do know the revelation of Savitar’s identity would affect Team Flash drastically, probably more than Harrison Wells did in Season 1.To be a god you just have to make people believe you are –Savitar, The Flash Season 3 Click To Tweet
