Barry Allen is traveling to a future that he hopes to prevent in the next all-new episode of The Flash.
The episode, titled “The Once and Future Flash,” features Barry’s bold attempt to travel to the future and figure out a way to prevent Iris from dying just a mere month in Barry’s own reality. Barry will attempt to discover Savitar’s true identity in order to take him down and save Iris.
Also in the episode, which is directed by The Flash‘s own Tom Cavanagh, the team hunts down Killer Frost in the present.
Here’s the synopsis (catch the photos in our gallery above):
