As the third season of The Flash ended, Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) walked into the Speed Force to save the world. This, of course, upset the rest of Team Flash greatly who had just spent the season trying to save Iris West (Candice Patton) only to lose Barry. The new season picks up six weeks later with Wally West (Keiynan Lonsdale), Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes) and Joe West (Jesse L. Martin) going out and protecting Central City while Iris runs the show from S.T.A.R. Labs.
We learn of new villains, Samuriods, and the need to get Barry back in the season premiere. But how they do that has the team split according to Valdes who talked with EW.com:
I wish I could say that the team unanimously agrees that things are not the same when the season starts, but not everybody feels that way. Most of the energy on the team is toward getting Barry back, and Cisco may or may not have some things up his sleeve with regards with how to make that happen, but there is a member of the team that’s not on board, and that ultimately makes the mission to get Barry back a lot more difficult. But the thing about Cisco is if he wants to get his friends back, he will do whatever it takes the get his friends back — and that’s not just Barry.
The two big takeaways from that are that someone is either against bringing Barry back or against the method they’re using. This seems like a Cisco / Harrison Wells conflict to me, but that’s just guessing. The second thing is, who else is Cisco trying to get back? His brother? H.R.? Caitlin Snow? This reminds me a bit of the end of season two where we went in knowing that Flashpoint was coming, yet it took place in one episode and then it was all about the fallout. Seems like Barry should’ve spent some real time in the Speed Force, not just the hiatus between season 3 and 4. But, we’ll see how it all works out.
The Flash returns October 10th on the CW.
