Barry Reveals Iris' Death in New Promo for 'The Flash'
Everyone who's caught up with The Flash knows a couple big things have been revealed: first, "Alchemy" was really a primordial, amazingly powerful Speedster in disguise named Savitar (aka, The God of Speed, aka "The Future", aka Grandmaster Flash). Second, Savitar manages to kill Iris in a future timeline despite Barry's best efforts. Barry's been keeping this a secret, but it looks like he finally tells Iris in the upcoming episode and starts trying to build a plan to save her:



We were super excited earlier this year to see the Flashpoint arc on The Flash, but as it turns out it's actually made things pretty complicated (almost tediously so). Introducing a new, god-like villain into the mix doesn't help to clarify things, especially now that Flashpoint keeps muddying the waters by mixing up timelines (and creating aberrant space-time children). Still, it's cool to see this kind of doomed love story between Barry and Iris, and it makes it all the more heroic that Barry is fighting god himself (sort of) to save her from the future.
