Barry Allen isn’t the only speedster in Central City. No, we’re not talking about Wally West. We’re talking about another West. Iris West.
But before you start firing millions of questions our way, know that while Iris will suit up and have super speed, it’s not permanent. But it does sound super fun!
Iris will temporarily suit up on The Flash, and EW.com spilled the details.
In the upcoming March 13 episode, Team Flash confronts a new bus meta, Matthew (Leonardo Nam). Otherwise known as Melting Pot, the meta has the ability to swap people’s DNA. During a battle with the team, Matthew transfers Barry’s (Grant Gustin) super speed to Iris, giving her the powers of the Flash. Hence, when a new threat is unleashed on Central City, Barry must act as the team leader, while Iris takes over as a speedster in order to defeat their new foe.
The Flash debuted a first look at Candice Patton suiting up in the March 13 episode, appropriately titled “Run, Iris, Run.”
The Flash returns from hiatus on February 27 at 8/7c on The CW.
