Barry Allen And Iris West Are Going To Have Issues When The Flash Returns


Barry Allen spent most of “The Flash” season 3 trying to save Iris West from being killed by Savitar, and after he did what he set out to do, it looked like they were headed toward a lifetime of marital bliss. But if you watch “The Flash” consistently then you know that the main characters rarely get happy endings to their stories.

At the end of the finale, Barry Allen sacrificed himself to the Speed Force, and when the show returns Team Flash will be trying to find a way to set him free from his prison. However, Candice Patton recently told Entertainment Weekly that Barry and Iris are going to have some issues to work out if they’re going to be happy together.

“There’s going to be some trust issues,” Patton says. “He left and didn’t really ask her or discuss it with her. He just kind of does things and comes back and says, ‘I hope you’re okay with that.’ They’re going to have to really work on their relationship before they actually tie the knot — if and when he comes out. There’s going to be some work that needs to be done before they actually put rings on each other’s fingers.”

Hopefully they don’t spend too much time focusing on the drama between Barry and Iris. Their relationship was great in season 3, so we’ll have to see how long it takes before they become a solid couple again.

“The Flash” season 4 will premiere on Tuesday, October 10.

Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) lived a normal life as a perpetually tardy C.S.I. in the Central City Police Department. Barry’s life changed forever when the S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator exploded, creating a dark-matter lightning storm that struck Barry, bestowing him with super-speed and making him the fastest man alive — The Flash. But when Barry used his extraordinary abilities to travel back in time and save his mother’s life, he inadvertently created an alternate timeline known as Flashpoint; a phenomenon that gave birth to the villainous speed god known as Savitar, and changed the lives of Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker) and Wally West (Keiyan Lonsdale) forever.

With the help of his adoptive father, Joe West (Jesse L. Martin), his lifelong best friend and love interest Iris West (Candice Patton), and his friends at S.T.A.R. Labs — Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes), C.S.I Julian Albert (Tom Felton), and an Earth-19 novelist named H.R. Wells (Tom Cavanaugh) — Barry continues to protect the people of Central City from the meta-humans that threaten it.

Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “Supergirl”), Andrew Kreisberg (“Arrow,” “The Flash”), Sarah Schechter (“Arrow,” “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”) and Todd Helbing (“Black Sails”).
