The Flash "The Good, The Bad and The Lucky" Preview Released
The CW has released a preview for "The Good, The Bad, and The Lucky", the sixth episode of The Flash's ninth and final season. The episode is scheduled to hair on Wednesday, March 15th. The episode will see Team Flash trying to sort out of Khione (Danielle Panabaker) has meta powers after she figured out that Iris (Candice Patton) was pregnant before even Iris knew herself. You can check out the preview for yourself below and then read on for the episode synopsis.
LUCK BE A LADY – As Barry (Grant Gustin) and Iris (Candice Patton) prepare for their new life, luck changes for those in Central City. Cecile (Danielle Nicolet) takes on a case with Allegra's (Kayla Compton) help, involving a string of unfortunate – and highly unexpected – events. Meanwhile, Chester (Brandon McKnight) and the team work with Khione (Danielle Panabaker) to figure out her abilities. Chad Lowe directed the episode written by Thomas Pound & Jess Carson.
Figuring out what powers Khione has will be an interesting situation for Team Flash. Thus far, Khione has been simply a ray of positivity for Team Flash, something that Panabaker discussed with ComicBook.com earlier this year.
"One of my favorite things about Khione is her innocence and just this optimism and positivity that she brings to the team," Panabaker said. "She hasn't seen Barry save the city a hundred plus times, so it's nice to have a new fresh perspective, and one that is so positive. I think Caitlin at times, particularly in earlier seasons, was always wary of the negative consequences of things. And to have someone like Khione, who's constantly looking for a more positive perspective and truly is a glass half full kind of gal, has been a lot of fun."
As for Iris' pregnancy, there is more to Iris' story in the final season than just becoming a parent, something that showrunner Eric Wallace previously spoke with ComicBook.com about.
"It's on purpose that Iris is quite frankly the smarter person in the season premiere. She is the font of wisdom. But because Barry learns that lesson, it doesn't mean that Iris doesn't have her own future demons. Now, notice I use the word future demons, not past demons," Wallace said. "Barry, in season nine, has past demons to deal with. What Iris is going to be dealing with are future demons, not literally, obviously, metaphorically, coming for her, because she knows, 'Oh wow, I'm going to win two Pulitzers. I'm about to get an extra 100 employees all of a sudden.' This is a big deal, and sometimes, I would almost call it getting what you want can sometimes be the scariest thing that can happen to you. And I think it's a very common thing that people go through in their lives as you navigate the waters of growing up, getting to the next markers in your lives, like, okay, marriage, children, getting that huge promotion you've worked for for 10 years, whatever it is."
He continued, "Sometimes getting those things can be as hard as working towards them, and that's, I think, a professional woman's career journey. I think that's something that they go through that we can use Iris as a character to reflect and say, 'It's going to be okay. You all got this.' Right? And men, catch up with it, all right? It's not all about just being the ego person in the room who knows everything. It's okay to have a little self-exploration and question yourself and grow a little bit. It's almost, I call it feminine wisdom, and that's something that a character like Iris has in spades, and thank goodness, because she's going to save everybody's behind with it a couple of times this season."
