While The CW has cut several Arrowverse shows this year, including Legends of tomorrow and batman, the flash always going strong. It became the longest Arrowverse episode after Episode 171, which served as Part 2 of the Season 8 finale. In the final two episodes of the flash season 8, the DC TV show saw Barry Allen take on an enhanced Reverse-Flash, with help from the Negative Forces.

However, like most previous seasons, the finale didn’t leave fans without a taste of what’s to come in Season 9.

Following the Season 8 finale, TVLine spoke with showrunner Wallace about the big finish, but also the ambiguous post-credits scene. Asked about the scene with the secret blue crystal, Wallace teases that it’s something that “comic book fans” will be able to recognize, in terms of what the flash season 9 is done. Here’s what Wallace says about setting up the flash season 9:
Die-hard comic book fans know what’s coming; those who don’t, I’m not spoiling it here, so it’s going to be a big surprise for them. But yeah, we’re pulling straight from the comics here, and it’s going to be fun.
