When The Flash resumes next week, Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) finds himself on trial for the murder of Clifford DeVoe. Never mind that DeVoe found himself a new body to inhabit. In order to avoid perjury, Barry considers revealing himself to be The Flash. But as this extended preview of next week’s episode suggests, he may decide against it. While his reasoning is sound — the rest of the team would become targets — it seems Iris (Candice Patton) will make the choice for him in a courtroom stunt worthy of any network cop drama.
Of course, there’s still a chance Barry can talk her down and out himself. But does that mean Barry’s headed to Iron Heights? And will that put Joe, Wally, Cisco and the rest of the team in legal and physical jeopardy? This was supposed to be a happier season for The Flash, but the stakes have never seemed greater.
The Flash returns January 16th.
