I wanted to dish on a theory I’ve had about the upcoming Crisis on Infinite Earths event, and more specifically, who’s gonna bite the dust.
The Monitor has already told both Oliver Queen and Barry Allen that the Crisis is going to be the end of them, but I have a theory about why he did that. What he’s saying is true, from a certain point of view.
I believe Oliver will go down after all is said and done. That much is a given. It’ll be interesting to see how, considering Stephen Amell is filming a series finale episode. But Green Arrow is going down, hands-down.
Barry might not though. His initial attempt to sacrifice himself will be stopped by another Flash. The Monitor said specifically “The Flash must die.” Could be Jay Garrick? Could be Earth-90 Barry Allen? Or even another iteration of him - perhaps the Barry Allen that fought Reverse-Flash in Barry’s childhood home in the past?
I just don’t see Barry biting it like Oliver.
