I just want to let you know this post has a LOT of spoilers, so read at your own peril.
I'd thought I'd start out with the big question: Who is Savitar?
SAVITAR IS BARRY
Yes, indeed. And I have evidence to support me. Let me put it this way. Guy finds out the woman he loves is going to die. Guy does anything to save her, but it doesn't work and she ends up dying anyway. For all of you who don't get what I'm referring to, it's Star Wars. Namely, the prequels (and just between you and me, I like them!) But anyway, it seems that The Flash is playing a similar game. Think of it this way: Barry needs to go faster, right? But he can't. So he's reling on Wally to save Iris for him. But something goes wrong. For some reason, Barry doesn't think Wally can do the job, and steps in. This is the crucial part here. Barry essentially does a "deal with the devil" sort of thing and makes a deal with the Speed Force: They allow him to have incredible speed, making him the fastest entity in the whole multiverse. But in return, he becomes the evil speedster Savitar.
Now, some of you may be wondering, "But RZ, if Barry becomes Savitar, then what's the point of saving Iris? He's the one that's supposed to kill her!" And this is where everything falls into place. To quote the immortal Rip Hunter, "Time wants to happen." No matter what you do, you can't stop preordained events from happening. Like with the whole Legion of Doom thing going on in Legends of Tomorrow. We know that won't end well, because, it's a TV show. And the good guys generally win. But more than that, you can't change fate. Each of those people had their life ruined in some way: Eobard Thawne was erased from the timeline; Malcolm Merlyn was kicked out of the League of Assassins and became a drunk; Damien Darhk was killed by the Green Arrow. Any way you slice it. you can't change what will happen. If Barry truly is Savitar, he will kill Iris. Sadly, they'll bring her back somehow. Just like in Revenge Of The Sith, Anakin was too blinded by rage to realize he was the reason his wife died.
H.R IS ACCLERATED MAN
For those of you who have no clue who Acclerated Man is, don't worry. I had to do a bit of research on him too. So here's a background: none.
No, I'm not joking. There is nothing known about this speedster other than the fact that he is a speedster. But, there is one crucial fact about him.
He's from Earth-19.
The same earth H.R. Wells is from. A bit suspicious, wouldn't you say? Here are my reasons/wonderings:
1. How did H.R. get to Earth-1 without the help of a speedster? I do have to add, though, maybe technology had advanced in such a way that speedsters weren't needed. They outlawed it, after all. People were abusing it, so... 2. Why would H.R. agree to train Wally, despite having no powers of his own, no experience, and he's not even a real scientist? Suspicious... 3. H.R. said a long time ago that they "still don't know my true purpose here" (correct me if that wasn't exactly what he said). Very suspicious! And finally, the biggest piece of evidence: Don't even tell me they aren't the same. That first one was spotted on the set of The Flash. The second is Accelerated Man.
Hopefully they'll give us a explanation.
