'The Flash' News and Update: Teddy Sears, Kevin Smith Tease Season 2 Finale

The CW's "The Flash" is currently just one episode away from its much-anticipated season 2 finale, and according to actor Teddy Sears (Zoom) and filmmaker/comic book writer Kevin Smith, who directed Tuesday's episode, something massive takes place in the season ender.

During Smith's latest "Fat Man on Batman" podcast, the director spoke about the upcoming season finale and said that he wished he was directing it.

Speaking to Sears, Smith hinted at the fifth season's penultimate episode, saying, "[T]here was something that happened in the episode right after mine where I was like, and it involves you in a big bad way… like I wished that I was directing it because it is mad genius."

Smith went on to talk about the "bold choice" that the show made going into season 3 and Sears responded, saying, "The jump is glorious, but if you don't have something to land on then why jump, ya know?"

"They so have it nicely figured out I think for where to launch season 3," he added.

In an interview with Variety, Smith talked about "The Runaway Dinosaur," the "Flash" episode which he directed, and said that it is his favorite thing he's ever directed. In "The Runaway Dinosaur," titular hero Barry Allen/The Flash (Grant Gustin) disappeared after a particle accelerator explosion that Wells (Tom Cavanagh) set up in a bid to get the superhero's superspeed back. Unfortunately, things didn't quite turn out the way Team Flash expected and all that was left after the explosion was Barry's burnt speedsuit.

According to Smith, "The Runaway Dinosaur" is the "calm before the storm" that sets up the last two season 5 episodes, in which the hero will be "reborn."

Smith also previewed the remaining season 5 episodes, telling Variety, "[T]he tail end of the episode after mine, that's like jaw-droppingly huge in the world of 'Flash,' it's massive."

"The Flash" airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
