Iris Becomes A Speedster In A Preview Of Next Week’s The Flash

by Erik Amaya


It’s finally time for Iris West-Allen (Candace Patton) to take on the Speed Force in next week’s episode of The Flash. As seen in the following preview, Iris and Barry’s (Grant Gustin) DNA get jumbled, giving her the powers of a speedster while Barry revisits the slow path and becomes the man in the chair.

And as mentioned before, Iris’s costume resembles that of Legionnaire Jenni Ognatz a great deal. I wonder if that is the identity of the mystery woman bumping into Team Flash at Jitters all the time. It’s possible she’s Dawn Allen, but I’ll always prefer more Legion representation on The CW.

So, you know, don’t get me started on Kent Shakespeare.

Meanwhile, this week’s episode left things up in the air regarding DeVoe’s involvement in the bomb plot. It still feels like they wanted to push Barry to his limits, but maybe drawing out the speedsters from Earth-2 and Earth-3 were part of the plan as well?

The Flash airs Tuesdays on The CW.
