How do you solve a problem like Abra Kadabra? By bargaining with him, apparently. In the synopsis for "Abra Kadabra," the Marth 28th episode of "The Flash," Barry is eager to make a deal with the time-travelling magician -- that is, until Gypsy snatches him away.
DC COMICS’ CHARACTER ABRA KADABRA VISITS CENTRAL CITY – The Flash (Grant Gustin) battles Abra Kadabra (guest star David Dastmalchian), a villain from Earth-19, who makes him a tempting offer – release him and Abra Kadara will reveal Savitar’s true identity. Desperate to save Iris (Candice Patton), Barry considers taking the deal but Gypsy (guest star Jessica Camacho) breaches in to capture the villain for her own reasons and during the melee, Abra Kadabra manages to escape. Barry is furious that Gypsy interfered but Gypsy refuses to back down, forcing Cisco (Carlos Valdes) to take sides. Meanwhile, Julian (Tom Felton) is still a bit cold towards Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) but when she is severely injured in a battle with Gypsy, he rushes to her side. Nina Lopez-Corrado directed the episode with story by Andrew Kreisberg and teleplay by Brooke Roberts & David Kob (#318). Original airdate 3/28/2017.
“Ant-Man” star David Dastmalchian will play Abra Kadabra, “a criminal from a distant future whose advanced technological powers seem like magic.” As such, “the time-traveling Abra Kadabra holds a secret the Flash will stop at nothing to uncover,” and -- if this episode synopsis is any indication -- that secret seems to be Savitar's true identity.
Seeing as Abra Kadabra hails from the future, it is entirely within the realm of possibility that he does indeed know Savitar's true identity. However, in the comics, the character isn't the most trustworthy of characters. In the comics, Citizen Abra hails from the 64th century, where technology has become so efficient that it has long since phased out magic. Nevertheless, Abra dreams of being a stage magician, and so travels back to the 20th century in order to wow the “primitive” people of the time with technology disguised as magic. If the show's version of the character is anything like the comics, then, Abra Kadabra's claim to know Savitar's identity could be simply be an illusion.
"Abra Kadabra" will air on March 28th, the week after "The Flash's" musical crossover with "Supergirl."
Starring Grant Gustin as the Scarlet Speedster, “The Flash” airs Tuesdays at 8 pm ET/PT on The CW. The series also stars Jesse L. Martin, Tom Cavanagh, Carlos Valdes, Candice Patton, Danielle Panabaker, Keiynan Lonsdale and more.
