The Flash returns soon. But as this teaser ad reveals, Barry Allen may not be all there.
As teased all summer, season four of The CW series will see Barry (Grant Gustin) return from the Speed Force some five months after he voluntarily joined with it to appease some sort of cosmic balance. In that time since, Team Flash realigned under the watchful eye of Iris West (Candice Patton).
But as time in the Speed Force is not a strict linear progression, it is difficult to know just how long Barry was inside that realm of untold velocity. It may have felt like centuries to him. So, it’s not too surprising to see Barry struggling with conventional spacetime upon his return. What will be surprising is if he remains out of sorts for more than an episode or two.
Either way, I guess he’s also getting that updated costume he glimpsed last year.
The Flash returns October 10th on the CW.
