Flash: Who is Savitar, Ronnie Raymond or Future Barry?

Flash: Who is Savitar, Ronnie Raymond or Future Barry?
The Last episode of Flash has left fans wondering: Who the hell is Savitar?

We know “Savitar” as an ancient and unimaginably powerful armor-wearing speedster. Savitar proclaims himself as the “God of Speed” and the “Ruler” of the Speed Force.

In the last teaser, CW promised to reveal the true identity of Savitar in the next episode as he reveals himself to Killer frost in the last scene of this week episode. Then geeks around are starting to wonder before the next episode: Who really is Savitar? Could he be the Ronnie Raymond, Caitlin Snow’s husband who died at the end of the first episode? or even Future Flash.

Ronnie Raymond.

Ronnie was the other half of Firestorm and helped stopped the singularity that nearly eats up Central City in the first season when Barry first experienced time travel. During the process of saving Central City, Firestorm spilt and Barry was only able to save Professor Martin Stein. This was a real heartbreaker for Caitlin as they just got married. So when Savitar decided to reveal himself to Caitlin first and seeing the way Caitlin reacted it was surely a person she trusted and know very well. Probably someone who was part of Team Flash.

Remember in the TV Spot Flash said to Savitar. ”

“Everything about you is time isn’t it? The past, the present , the future”

” You know our strength”

” You know our Fears”

“You know how we love each other”

That leads us to the next Suspect.

Future Barry.

“Everything about you is time isn’t it? The past, the present , the future”

” You know our strength”

” You know our Fears”

“You know how we love each other”

 With the little we know Ronnie isn’t a speedstar and “Everything about you is time isn’t it? The past, the present , the future” dosen’t work for Ronnie as he is only part of Firestorm not a speedstar.

  • Remeber the episode “The Wrath Of Savitar,” Savitar says “I am the future, Flash,” three times. While it is assumed that there is a comma after the word “future,” it could be a hint that Savitar is some future version of Barry Allen.
  • There has also been ideas of Savitar been the true and first speedstar, based on the little we know already Barry Allen became a speedstar before Kid Flash, Jesse Quick. But the mystery is : Why kill Iris? Maybe that wasn’t Iris, who knows.
  • The biggest clue that Savitar is a current member of the team is just how much he knows about each team member. Savitar is always two to three steps ahead of Team Flash, ever wondered why is this? Probably because Savitar is  the Future Flash and knows what they will do before they even act.
  • Remeber when Savitar said from the Speed Force, “I know you, Caitlin. Cisco, Joe, Wally. The fake Wells. I know your fears and I know your weaknesses. I know you better than you know yourselves. I know your destinies.”
  • Just like the story of Oliver Queen and Promethus, Savitar has proven to be powerful and fast. But he still  doesn’t want to kill the Flash, and is holding out to make Barry suffer. This suggests that the root of their conflict is extremely personal.

With all the above stated reasons and points, i personally believe the Future Barry Allen is Savitar. Then why is he trying to kill Iris? I totally don’t know. Probably another twist to the story is coming up.

It is obviously not Caitlin Snow as we saw Savitar revealing himself to her.

Who do you think is Savitar?? Comment your thoughts below.
