The CW has released a clip from 'Mixed Signals', the second episode of The Flash's fourth season. You can check it out above.
The episode will see Barry (Grant Gustin) officially return to his role as Central City's hero The Flash, complete with an updated, high-tech suit courtesy of Cisco (Carlos Valdes). Of course, that technology might not be all that helpful – and possibly even dangerous -- as Team Flash will find themselves facing off against Ramsey Deacon (Dominic Burgess,) a metahuman whose power is that he can control technology.
In addition to dealing with Deacon, Barry will have issues closer to home to deal with. Iris (Candice Patton) has been used to being in charge and handling things in Barry's absence so the couple has to figure out how to adjust to how things have changed -- for both of them -- during Barry's six months in the Speed Force. Learning how to cope will see the West/Allen couple head off to therapy together, something that executive producer Andrew Kreisberg said in a recent interview that makes the episode a lot of fun.
“Well, it’s a lot of fun in episode two," Kreisberg said. "Barry and Iris keep comically clashing inadvertently because she’s used to being in charge, and he’s used to being in charge, and so they wind up going to couple’s therapy to work through it. The two of them with the therapist is some of the funniest stuff we have ever done on this show, but it also leads to a deepening of their relationship.”
Of course, Barry isn't the only member of Team Flash dealing with relationship issues. Cisco and Gypsy (Jessica Camacho) have some relationship issues of their own to work out. With the pair living on different Earths, they have their own, unique communication challenges to face as well.
Find out how Barry and Iris handle their issues – and how the team deals with Deacon when 'Mixed Signals' airs tonight at 8/7c on The CW.
