According to showrunner Andrew Kreisberg we will learn more about Speed Force mythology. He told Entertainment Weekly, "Barry makes another journey into the Speed Force and it's a very different kind of journey. Last time, in a way, it was like he went to heaven, and this time it's more like going to hell — it's more about descending deeper and deeper into levels of hell. We get a little bit more about the Speed Force mythology and speedsters' connection to it."
Actor Grant Gustin, who plays the Scarlet Speedster talks about ramifications from Barry's decision, about Wally West faster and it ended up freeing Savitar. He said, "Barry's emotions can kind of get the best of him and he can make choices that seem clear and helpful in the moment that end up having ramifications that he didn't necessarily expect. That's one of those moments."
