The Flash: Is the Thinker Season 4's Main Villain?
While most of the chatter surrounding The Flash’s Season 3 finale surrounds the shocking, status quo-altering ending, that wasn’t the only big development to be found in that episode. Savitar may have given fans a major clue as to which DC villain will be headlining the upcoming fourth season. And as promised, this villain won’t be another evil speedster, but rather a shadowy criminal mastermind known as The Thinker.
Full spoilers for The Flash continue below.
“Finish Line” is actually the second episode this season where one of Barry Allen’s time-traveling enemies has referenced a character named DeVoe. Earlier, Abra Kadabra spoke of DeVoe in the same breath as Reverse-Flash and Zoom, implying that this villain is in their league in terms of power and overall threat level. And in “Finish Line,” Savitar reminisced about building a machine to stop DeVoe’s telekinetic powers before reminding himself that Team Flash circa-2017 has yet to encounter this enemy. It would seem the writers are laying the seeds for their next major villain much in the same way Arrow set the stage for Damien Darhk in late Season 3. Here’s where we think the show might be headed with DeVoe as its main antagonist in Season 4.
