Grant Gustin’s The Flash Shows Barry’s Death With Crisis Comic Moment
The latest episode of Grant Gustin’s The Flash hinted at Barry’s death from the original Crisis on Infinite Earths story in the comics.
The second episode of The Flash‘s sixth season teased the death for Grant Gustin’s scarlet speedster. After Barry fails to travel to the day after the crossover event, but is thrown backwards by anti-matter. After handily getting help from Jay Garrick on Earth-3, Grant Gustin’s hero gets to see beyond the anti-matter wall and sees the end of the multiverse. Fans from the comics will be expecting to see The Flash disintegrate as he saves the world and it seems like the crossover will live up to those expectations.
Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen sees the anti-matter wiping out the planet and killing off key characters from The Flash like Killer Frost, Elongated Man and Iris West. But as one eagle eyed Twitter user spotted, a key part of the vision mirrored the scene from the original Crisis comics where The Flash died. As Grant Gustin’s The Flash is hurtling along he’s being ripped apart by the event, disintegrating onscreen. Take a look at the comparison of Grant Gustin’s death on The Flash compared to the comics.

After teasing such an iconic moment for Grant Gustin’s The Flash from the Crisis story, do you think we’ll see an extended version of Barry’s death during the Arrowverse crossover? Tell us your predictions in the comments!
Crisis on Infinite Earths has been teased since the very first episode of The Flash, where a newspaper headline from the year 2024 revealed the Barry Allen’s fate was to disappear during a “crisis.” However, the fifth season finale of the Grant Gustin series accelerated this when the original newspaper headline changed the date of the event from 2024 to 2019. To add to this, the seventh season finale of Stephen Amell’s Arrow set up Oliver Queen’s role in the next crossover by having him join the Monitor on a mission to warn other worlds of the crisis, as part of the arrangement Oliver made in order to save the lives of both The Flash and Supergirl.
Crisis On Infinite Earths will span two quarters and consist of Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, and Batwoman. The Arrowverse crossover will launch with three episodes in December before concluding with two additional episodes in January.
