We still have some time to squeeze in one more preview before Tuesday night's The CW's The Flash. Barry aka The Flash (Grant Gustin) and Iris (Candice Patton) never seem to be able to catch a break: first with the whole "Crisis" crossover changing pretty much everything and now this whole "mirror world" deal.
The amount of damage "Iris" can do can be pretty substantial – and don't remind us of the personal toll it will take on Barry and Iris' relationship. Because at some point, Iris is going to start wondering why it took Barry so long for him to figure out it wasn't the real her.
But first, Iris has to find her way out of her "mirror trap" – and in the following scene from "A Girl Named Sue", she realizes that she's not alone… and that the woman is definitely no stranger to what's going on:
"The Flash" season 6, episode 12 "A Girl Named Sue": WHEN RALPH MET SUE – After months of searching for Sue Dearbon (guest star Natalie Dreyfuss), Ralph (Hartley Sawyer) gets a lead on her whereabouts and finally comes face to face with his missing client. However, Sue refuses to return home to her family, and instead, takes Ralph on a daring adventure. Iris (Candice Patton) faces a new challenge while Barry (Grant Gustin) considers a potentially dangerous request from a trusted source. Chris Peppe directed the episode, written by Thomas Pound and Lauren Certo.
The CW's The Flash stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen aka The Flash, Candice Patton as Iris West-Allen, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow aka Killer Frost, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon aka Vibe, Hartley Sawyer as Ralph Dibny aka Elongated Man, and Danielle Nicolet as Cecile Horton – with Tom Cavanagh as Harrison Wells and Jesse L. Martin as Detective Joe West.
Showrunner Eric Wallace spoke about the impact a post-"Crisis" world will have on Barry and "Team Flash" when it comes to "big bads" – so viewers should expect some serious changes… and surprises:
"The past villains that we saw in previous seasons, they're not the same villains anymore. They are different people. They might even have different abilities, which Team Flash is going to get caught unprepared. It gives a freshness to it and even more danger to what would be a meta-of-the-week kind of story line. It becomes even more treacherous if you don't know what the meta is, because that meta is a little bit more unpredictable."
While not giving away too many details, Wallace suggested that the possibilities are pretty endless now: "We're going to dig deep. You're definitely going to get villains we have not seen in a long time popping up."
