Eric Wallace Reflects on ‘Bittersweet’ Final Season of the CW Series (Exclusive)

The flash returns on Wednesday for its ninth and final season with the final run for Barry Allen wrapping up nearly a decade of saving Central City (and the world), as well as an emotional journey for the Scarlet Speedster and Team Flash. It was also an emotional journey for showrunner Eric Wallace. In a recent interview with ComicBook. com Ahead of the final season premiere, Wallace said that as they approach production of the series finale, things get emotional and that every “final” moment in the making of this season was bittersweet.

“I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that a lot of tears have been shed over the past few months, good, happy tears right here in the writer’s office, as we realize when we finish the scene, sometimes we say to ourselves, ‘Hey, that’s the last time I’m ever going to write a scene with blank insert your favorite character here,” or, “oh, we’ve got Oliver Queen back for one episode. Oh, we’re never gonna write Oliver Queen again. Oh no, “All these things are the last time we do things. The last time we had a scene in the Cortex, which we’re on right now, we’re writing the series finale. These are really emotional stuff. So yeah, there’s a lot of laughing, a lot of crying, a lot of hugging in the office.”

He continued that even filming things on the different sets carries an emotional weight, especially since they’ll end up filming on all sets for the last time — even sets that are new this season.

“There will come a time when we even film our last scene on a new set, and that will be bittersweet too,” he said.
