"The Flash" Season 6 "Love Is A Battlefield": A Tale of Two Iris [SCENE]

With this week's episode of The CW's The Flash, we already know that Barry (Grant Gustin) and Iris (Candice Patton) learn firsthand that "Love is a Battlefield" – especially when Amunet (Katee Sackhoff) returns. Now while that's obviously a topic that should be at the top of the list to be taken care of, let's not forget about the whole "reflective moment" Iris had at the end of last episode (review here).

So we're a little concerned about what's going on in the following exclusive clip from EW, which finds Barry and Iris out for a Valentine's Day dinner (pre-Amunet return) to work on the personal side of their lives. Then something very unexpected happens…

Iris speaks Italian… fluently?!?

Thankfully, Iris' less-than-legit-sounding reason as to why Barry wouldn't have known gets saved by an unannounced guest – as you'll see in the clip below (obviously, go big screen – damn embed issues!), followed by the original promo and preview images:

"The Flash" season 6, episode 11 "Love Is A Battlefield": LOVE IS IN THE AIR – Barry (Grant Gustin) and Iris (Candice Patton) plan a romantic dinner for Valentine's Day but their evening is interrupted by an old foe – Amunet (guest star Katee Sackhoff). Meanwhile, Frost (Danielle Panabaker) gets into the holiday spirit and attempts to help Allegra (guest star Kayla Compton) reconnect with an old love. Sudz Sutherland directed the episode, written by Kelly Wheeler and Jeff Hersh.

Showrunner Eric Wallace spoke with EW about the impact a post-"Crisis" world will have on Barry and "Team Flash" when it comes to their list of "big bads" – so expect some serious changes:

"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."
