Even though fans were fatigued by the show stretching itself for years and kind of lost its essence after the Crisis on Infinite Earths event, it’s still a hard pill to swallow that the CW show is finally ending. And with the completion of the filming of its final episode, fans are now emotionally charged as Grant Gustin is set to leave the role of the scarlet speedster behind.
Absolutely not perfect by any stretch of imagination but when it was good it was really good and I think Gustin played a good Barry Allen

It was a good run while it lasted. I love this show and sure there are things that didn’t work well but in the end, it was the greatest CW series

This show was one of the best for the first couple of seasons but what I feel was the beginning of its downfall was when The Justice League came out and Ezra Miller was announced as The Flash. I actually feel like Grant Austin should’ve been given the role for the big screen too.
