It’s no secret; The Flash has been on a warpath trying to ensure his lover Iris West does not die. In the most recent season of The Flash, fans have watched as Barry Allen goes to whatever lengths possible to keep Iris alive. The speedster was sent into a tizzy when he learned Savitar would kill Iris, and Barry is not willing to let his longtime love go so easily. So, naturally, fans are feeling a bit apprehensive about the latest batch of set photos to come from The Flash.
Over on Just Jared, the entertainment site got a hold of some shocking photos from The Flash’s set. The images appear to depict a funeral as a slew of lead characters are show wearing black formal wear on an equally dreary set. In a few photos, Barry can be seen close to Iris whilst the leading lady looks teary. While the image does give fans hope that the alleged funeral sequence is not meant for Iris, it does pose another big question: If someone is about to die, then who will it be?
Right now, The Flash is heading slowly towards its climax. When the drama returns, fans will watch as Barry travels to the future in an attempt to learn more about Savitar’s weakness, and the following episode will then focus on Killer Frost’s rampage. Fans fear it may actually be Caitlin Snow who bites the dust given her sudden reversion back into the Killer Frost persona, and Danielle Panabaker wasn’t featured in The Flash’s most recent set photos.
For now, fans can only hope the funeral scene is anything but. Perhaps some character on the show wanted to have a very gothic-themed party? While it is nice to think otherwise, reality lends itself to the fact that a character on The Flash will die this season before Savitar can be brought down - and it may have wholly unexpected ramifications upon the entire show.
You can read up on the synopsis for the next episode of The Flash below:
Barry (Grant Gustin) travels to the future to find out Savitar’s still unknown identity in the hopes of saving Iris (Candice Patton). Upon his arrival in 2024, Barry encounters future versions of his Team Flash friends, who, following the death of Iris, have become very different people, profoundly impacted by their showdown with Savitar. It will be up to Barry to infuse a sense of hope back into the team, as he proves to be hero his future friends have been waiting for. Meanwhile, back in 2017, the hunt for Killer Frost (Danielle Panabaker) continues.
Tom Cavanagh directed the episode written by Carina Adly MacKenzie.
