Is Ronnie Really Dead On 'The Flash'? The Singularity Lead To Even More Destruction Than We Thought
The sophomore season of The Flash hit the ground running for its first episode — literally. We finally got to see what happened when Barry threw himself into the singularity over Central City in the Season 1 finale. Don't worry, he managed to slow it down and eventually stop it, but doing so left one huge causality: Ronnie. It appears as if The Flash is starting off Season 2 already down one important metahuman, and now it's time to ask the tough question: is Ronnie dead on The Flash ?
The only way to stop the singularity from sucking up all of Central City was for Barry to run as fast as he can, and for Firestorm to create a small explosion in the middle of it. That meant Ronnie and his other half, Martin Stein, had to separate mid-air. As soon as Ronnie grabbed Caitlin Snow for a kiss, I think we all knew exactly what was going to happen. After the explosion, only one Firestorm emerged from the blast — Martin. Ronnie is MIA.
However, this does not mean he's dead. He could be dead, but we didn't see the body. So really, Ronnie could have been sucked into the singularity, and ended up in another timeline/dimension, like the Flash started teasing would happen last season. Sure, there's reason to freak out about him being probably dead, but he's not fully dead right now, OK? Have hope, even if it appears as if Caitlin has given up completely.
Honestly, we should have seen this coming. As of right now, The Flash/Arrow spin-off, Legends of Tomorrow, only includes one half of Firestorm, Stein. Ronnie has been suspiciously absent from all promotional materials for the show, and I'll admit, in the back of my head, I've had a weird feeling about him (actually, I've had that weird feeling since May).
According to Cinema Blend, Robbie Amell has been confirmed for a few episodes of The Flash this season. While Ronnie could he be appearing only in flashbacks, he could also be in another timeline completely. Perhaps a different timeline where he happens to meet Killer Frost? Whatever the case, I don't think we've seen the last of Ronnie on The Flash this season.
More to come...
