When our favorite”The Flash” returns for its fourth season, fans should expect to see Barry Allen despite his passionate goodbye in the season’s finale.
After months of thoughts that the final episode of season 3 led to Barry’s death, it has lately been revealed that it was surely not the end for the Central City hero.
The season 4 premiere summary released by WBTV as part of their San Diego Comic-Con 2017 news reads:
“Running up against an evil time remnant version of yourself is something no one should ever have to do, but that is exactly what faced Barry Allen as he fought to save the life of fiancée Iris West from the God of Speed known as Savitar. Barry’s victory was short-lived, as an unbalanced Speed Force began to wreak destruction on Central City, forcing Barry to lose himself for the greater good.”
“With The Fastest Man Alive now trapped inside an extra-dimensional energy, and unknown dangers lurking in the shadows, it will be up to Team Flash to free Barry from his own personal Hell.”
This implies although it seems impossible, and even though Barry seemed to be at harmony when he entered the Speed Force prison, the scarlet speedster’s friends are still going to find a way to protect him.
The preview also mentioned Gustin as one of the cast members, which means that the actor is still going to be part of the series.
“The Flash” Season 4 Episode 1 is said to be titled “The Flash Reborn,” implying that Barry may be back earlier than expected, or that there is going to be another speeder taking The Flash’s mantle. And we al know that fans will have to wait for more spoilers or for the tv show to return to find out what will happen next.
Meanwhile, Candice Patton, who plays Iris West, was previously asked about Barry’s fate in the series. Since it was assumed that the offering he made in the season 3 finale meant that it was the last chapter of the speedster’s life.
“We still don’t have Barry Allen out of the Speed Force,” she told to TV Line. With this information, it looks like the fans are going to see Barry’s time inside the Speed Force when the tv show returns this fall.
Also, when asked if her role is going to get her fiance back, Patton said: “That is a very unusual question that I can’t actually answer!”
“The Flash” Season 4 premieres Tuesday, Oct. 10 at 8 p.m. EST on The CW.
