The Flash show runners have promised a return to a more lighthearted tone, and “Mixed Signals” looks like the season’s off off to a great start.
The official synopsis:
BARRY AND IRIS GO TO COUPLES THERAPY – Barry (Grant Gustin) has his hands full when he takes on a dangerous meta (guest star Dominic Burgess) who can control technology, while also confronting an obstacle in his personal life: the ramifications of abandoning Iris (Candice Patton) for six months to balance the Speed Force. Meanwhile, Gypsy (guest star Jessica Camacho) breaches in for a hot date with Cisco (Carlos Valdes), but she gets annoyed when his work keeps them apart.
This isn’t the first time an OTP on a show like this has to go to “couple’s therapy” (season two of Lucifier, anyone?). These kinds of scenes always promise to be humorous (for the audience) and enlightening (for the characters). Juxtaposed with some potentially steamy Cynco romance? The Flash could be more fun than it’s ever been!
The Flash airs Tuesdays on the CW.
