In every season of The Flash so far, there’s always been that moment when the villain’s true face is revealed after several episodes of threatening behaviour. In season one, it was when the Reverse-Flash was unmasked to be Harrison Wells, and in season two, it was when we learned that Jay Garrick and Zoom were one and the same. For season three, the big (bad) question was who is Dr. Alchemy, and in a last minute twist on Tuesday night’s episode, the secret was uncovered much earlier than expected, even if the secret identity of Alchemy was pretty much as we expected.
To only maybe a few people’s surprise, it was reveal that Julian Albert, the character played by
Draco Malfoy Tom Felton, was spending his spare time as a super-villain. It’s not particularly surprising that Felton’s Julian is the latest threat to Central City, and not just because Felton used to plague the halls of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry as the entitled Slytherin bully, but considering he’s Barry Allen’s fellow CSI and the whole idea of mirror universes being played with thanks to “Flashpoint”, it makes sense that if one crime scene investigator is good, then the other must be evil.
Motivation? Julian’s got that! We also learned that Dr. Alchemy has pledge himself to Savitar, the God of Speed, and is dedicating himself to restoring people to their”Flashpoint” timeline selves. Whether or not Julian is aware of what he’s doing as Dr. Alchemy is another mystery though, the comic book version of the character has a past with multiple personality issues. But it’s a mystery that will have to wait to be solved because next week is the big Arrowverse crossover with Arrow, Supergirl, and Legends of Tomorrow.
The Flash airs Tuesdays at 8 pm on the CW.
