The Flash season 7 continued with an episode that was originally meant to be its season premiere. However, the concluding moments left fans with a lot of questions.

The Flash season 7 has wasted little time getting viewers talking. The Arrowverse show’s return revolved around its attempt to tie up the previous season – which it did really well in the third episode of the season.

Eva McCulloch called off her attack on Earth-Prime and decided to return to the Mirrorverse so that she could rebuild things better in her own universe, earning the name Mirror Monarch. And with that, the threat was neutralized… or was it?

The fourth episode of the season saw Barry Allen collide with his old enemy Abra Kadabra (David Dastmalchian) in what was originally supposed to be the season premiere. But “Central City Strong” concluded on a shocking note, setting up a very interesting season.

What does the ending of The Flash season 7, episode 4 really mean?

The episode, titled “Central City Strong”, saw The Flash go up against Abra Kadabra. However, before the magician could destroy Central City with an anti-matter bomb, Barry managed to appeal to that glimmer of hope within him (that had turned into despair after Crisis wiped out his family’s existence). In the end, Kadabra – or Phillipe as he revealed his real name to be – called off his attack and attempted to start life anew.

However, their heart-to-heart was interrupted by the arrival of a huge CGI-monstrous woman who killed Abra Kadabra with a single strike as he attempted to stop her. The unnamed assailant then very nearly killed Barry Allen before she left the scene of her heinous crimes.

While it’s unknown who this woman is, the working theory is that she is the result of the lightning storm that kicked off in last week’s finale-esque episode – which saw four of the DC Comics Forces sent into the atmosphere. The yellow lightning represented the Speed Force, the blue represented the Sage Force, the red represented the Strength Force and the green represented the Still Force.

It’s pretty clear that this woman was imbued with the Strength Force, giving her abilities similar to that of the Incredible Hulk. And as we saw that lightning storm was still raging, it’s clear that she is only the beginning of new supernatural threats that will emerge.

What does the mid-credit scene of The Flash season 7, episode 4 mean?

Just when we thought The Flash‘s latest episode couldn’t get any more bizarre, we found out that there were two Caitlins. Well, Caitlin and Frost that is – who have now been separated without any kind of explanation.

The pair had both been experiencing simultaneous headaches prior to their apparent separation so it seems that this may have been the first sign that they were about to separate. The question is: Will the two be able to co-exist or will something eventually draw them together again?

Whatever happens, Danielle Panabaker is sure going to have some fun with this story!
