Barry Faces A Tough Choice In A Preview Of The Next Episode Of The Flash

by Erik Amaya


The Flash returns in two weeks. And when it does, the trial of Barry Allen begins. Much like his trial in the days before the Crisis on Infinite Earths, the Flash has been set up for a crime he did not commit. But unlike that case, Barry (Grant Gustin) has friends and family in law enforcement willing to go against their principles to help him; as seen in this new preview of the next episode:

The most shocking notion here is that Joe West (Jesse L. Martin) is willing to plant evidence in the DeVoe home to exonerate Barry. Almost as shocking: Ralph Dibny (Hartley Sawyer) appears to be against the idea! But knowing Joe, he may reconsider his plan, leaving Barry with the difficult choice to reveal himself as the Flash in open court. Will he do it? And is this part of DeVoe’s plan?

The Flash returns January 16th on The CW.
