The Flash hits its season finale tonight on The CW, and it promises to be a doozy. After a season full of alternate realities, doppelgängers, and duplicitous villains, it all comes to a head tonight. Which means, of course, it's almost time for us to start thinking about next season.

When Jesse L. Martin, Detective Joe West, and Carlos Valdes, Cisco Ramon/Vibe chatted with on the red carpet at the CW upfronts, they were looking back a little, but looking forward a little, too. Now that Cisco has working Vibe goggles that help him focus his powers, will he be getting a full costume, too?

"It's gotta be coming. It's coming soon. It's gotta be!" Martin told enthusiastically. Valdes was a little more hesitant... almost as if he knew something. "Reason would have it," he said, throwing up his hands, "that's all I'm gonna say!"

Fans don't have to worry about Cisco getting a full Vibe costume and abandoning everything his character has been so far, though.

"I think Cisco, more than anything, is a scientist at heart," the actor said. "He's a mechanical engineer, and he's a geek! So I don't think that's ever not going to be a part of him. There's nothing more exciting to him than embracing the unknown."

Martin, meanwhile is looking for some romance for Joe West, and said he thinks he could find it during the big four-show crossover with Supergirl, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow.

"I'm kinda hoping that we'd have a little love thing going on," Martin said with a smile when asked about Joe meeting Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart) in National City. "Why not? Joe's single, as far as I can tell she's single, we may as well get together!"

In a more serious moment, Martin also said he'll "do everything he can to make sure Barry's okay" after the sudden death in the penultimate story of the season.

The Flash season finale airs tonight at 8pm on The CW.
