The CW is billing The Flash season 6 episode 8 as the midseason finale and we understand why they want to hype it up. “The Last Temptation of Barry Allen: Part 2” on December 3 is the last proper episode of the series, and it’s the precuror for Crisis on Infinite Earths when it starts the following week.
Oh, and we should also go ahead and point out while we’re at it that this is going to be the showdown between the title character and Bloodwork — if he doesn’t make it through this battle, he could be gone before the Crisis even begins. Bloodwork’s been escalating for some time as a villain already, which is what leads to us being at the point in which we are now. He’s only going to get more dangerous — not only does he have abilities, but he’s also able to build his own freaking army. We don’t think that the producers were kidding around when it was mentioned that this was going to be one of the most terrifying arcs that we’ve seen.
For some more news as to how the Bloodwork arc could be wrapping up, at least for the time being, we suggest that you check out the official The Flash season 6 episode 8 synopsis now:
THE EPIC CONCLUSION OF THE TWO-PART MID-SEASON FINALE – With The Flash (Grant Gustin) freshly infected by the monstrous Bloodwork (guest star Sendhil Ramamurthy), Iris (Candice Patton) and Cisco (Carlos Valdes) battle to help Barry take control of himself before he’s lost forever to Ramsey’s influence. Meanwhile, the rest of Team Flash fight to reclaim control of Central City from Bloodwork’s growing army. Michael Nankin directed the episode written by Kristen Kim & Joshua V. Gilbert (#608). Original airdate 12/3/2019.
We can’t say that there is necessarily some huge cliffhanger here, mostly because that’s what the crossover is going to be used for. The second half of this season is under a heavy lock and key for now, but it will most likely pick up where Crisis ends as opposed to focusing too much on just what is happening now.
