This week’s episode of the flash delivered some wild turns for the CW series. Not only did we finally get the answer to what really lies behind Iris’ time sickness, but it came with not one, but two horrifying developments: Iris died in Barry’s arms thanks to the machinations of Negative Still Force Deon and then the resurrected Reverse Flash, literally bursting out of the body of “good” Eobard Thawne, now faster than ever. It’s a dire situation for everyone involved, but Team Flash doesn’t fall apart without a fight. The CW has released a preview of “Negative, Part Two,” next week’s Season 8 finale of the flashand you can check it out for yourself below.
As you can see in the preview, the team is still dealing with a lot of grief as they process what happened in this week’s episode, but they’re not just going to let Thawne and the forces. negatives win and it looks like they’ll need all the help they can get. You can also check out the official synopsis for the episode below.
“FINAL SEASON – With The Flash (Grant Gustin) still reeling from everything that just happened, the rest of the team steps up to support him when he needs it most. The series also stars Jesse L. Martin, Candice Patton, Danielle Panabaker, Danielle Nicolet, Kayla Compton and Brandon McKnight. Marcus Stokes directed the episode written by Eric Wallace.”
Of course, while things are looking really bleak right now for Team Flash, showrunner Eric Wallace has previously said the season will end well.
“Yes, I’m happy to announce, and you can quote me, Team Flash will be fine by the end of Season 8. Iris’ time sickness will be cured by the end of Season 8. Barry and Iris , who have been in separate places, because she’s either in Coast City with Sue, trying to do things as a reporter and he’s fighting Deathstorm,” Wallace said. “All of these things are there for a reason, they all come together in our latest graphic novel this season, but everyone will get back together. And because I love happy endings, everyone will live happily ever after. Iris doesn’t isn’t dying. Barry isn’t dying. None of that.”
He claimed the villains wouldn’t fare so well, noting that not only would they lose hugely in the season finale, but it was the biggest episode in the show’s history – and it was. is the one he feels they ripped off.
“The bad guys are definitely wasting a lot of time in 820. Danielle Panabaker said to me while reading the episode, ‘Eric, this is the biggest episode in the history of the hour-long show. How the hell are we going to we succeed in this?’ And I said, ‘I don’t know, but I’ll find out.’ And I did. I’m happy to report that I did.
