During “The Flash” season 3, Barry Allen accidentally traveled to the future where he saw Savitar kill the love of his life Iris West. Once Barry returned to the present, he dedicated his life to making sure that moment never happens, and when the show returns with “The Once And Future Flash” next week, he’ll be searching for answers.
Unfortunately it doesn’t look like Barry is going to be finding the answers he’s looking for but he is going to find himself, literally. Barry Allen will meet up with the future version of himself, and according to Candice Patton, future Barry will be in rough shape.
“You see this older version of Barry Allen that hasn’t really ever gotten over the death of Iris West,” Candice Patton revealed to TV Line.
Grant Gustin added that there are a lot of Barry and Barry scenes that “pretty emotional from both sides.”
“Barry looks pretty similar — he is in shambles,” Gustin said. “He does not look good. He’s about eight years older, which in a way made it more challenging for me, because it wasn’t like, ‘This is my grizzled, older self.’ They were some of the more challenging scenes I’ve done — if not just this year, in the whole series, because I’m my own scene partner.”
“The Once And Future Flash” will air on the CW on Tuesday, April 25th.
