FLASH Season 7 puts Barry and Iris’ marriage at risk



The Flash (The CW)

The 6th season of The Flash was cut short due to the coronavirus pandemic halting production. So instead of consisting of 22 episodes, the 6th season finished on 19, meaning that Season 7 will pick up exactly where Season 6 left off.

The CW has released an official synopsis for the premiere episode of season 7, which I’m assuming would have originally been episode 20 of season 6.

You can read the full Synopsis right here:

Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) lived a normal life as a perpetually tardy C.S.I. in the Central City Police Department. Barry’s life changed forever when the S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator exploded, creating a dark-matter lightning storm that struck Barry, bestowing him with superspeed and making him the fastest man alive — The Flash. After a thrilling cliffhanger last season which saw the new Mirror Master (Efrat Dor) victorious and still-at-large in Central City, The Flash must regroup in order to stop her and find a way to make contact with his missing wife, Iris West-Allen (Candice Patton).

With help from the rest of Team Flash, which includes superheroes Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker), Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes), Ralph Dibny (Hartley Sawyer), and Nash Wells (Tom Cavanagh), as well as the Flash’s adoptive father Joe West (Jesse L. Martin), Meta-Attorney Cecile Horton (Danielle Nicolet), tough cub reporter Allegra Garcia (Kayla Compton) and brilliant tech-nerd Chester P. Runk (Brandon McKnight)…Flash will ultimately defeat Mirror Master. But in doing so, he’ll also unleash an even more powerful and devastating threat on Central City: one that threatens to tear his team—and his marriage—apart.

Despite this storyline being somewhat disrupted by the shutdown, Showrunner Eric Wallace promises that the conclusion will deliver. According to Wallace, the season 7 premiere will be an emotional one:

“oh boy, will there be tears. Oh my. Tears in our season premiere.”

So what could this mean for Barry and Iris? Could season 7 see the happy couple drift apart? Well, we’ll have to wait to find out. The season premiere will air in January 2021 on the CW where we will see The Flash face brand new threats and news tensions growing within the team.
