Spoiler alert? 

Fans of the comic event known as Crisis on Infinite Earths know that it doesn’t exactly have the happiest of endings. I mean, it kinda does, but not without sacrifice. Not only does Supergirl meet her end in the 1985 limited series, but even Barry Allen ends up biting the dust during the events. Literally. I mean, look at this horrifying series of panels.

But what does this mean for the upcoming television event “Crisis on Infinite Earths”? It will obviously be inspired by the iconic comic event, but will those deaths be a key part of it?

I can’t speak for Supergirl, but if we’re to believe The Flash showrunner Eric Wallace, Barry will also be meeting an untimely end, as he indicated after a screening of the season premiere of The Flash.

“‘Crisis’ turned out to be the best thing that could have happened to… The Flash because it created an immediacy to things. We know that on December 10, 2019, the Flash will die…. We’re not messing around.”

Fans will know that the Flash’s death has been teased for the entire show in an issue of the Central City Citizen, and from the sound of it, the events in Season 5 have accelerated that death from 2024 to 2019. Whoops.

But, will this death be permanent? I mean, you can’t have The Flash without the Flash, can you? Then again, this series has never been short on Speedsters, so who knows, really?
