Flash Team on Wells' Agenda, Barry's Love Woes and New Weather Wizard

The Flash Season 1 Spoilers

The Flash is spilling villainous secrets and stirring up romantic feelings this Tuesday to make for “the best episode we’ve done,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg proclaims.

“It’s everything that The Flash can do as a TV show,” raves the EP, noting that the hour is directed by Thor Freudenthal, who also helmed Arrow‘s fall finale “The Climb.”

“The episode delivers in spades. It’s got amazing special effects you just don’t see on television. It’s full of heart. It’s full of romance. It’s full of genuine scares. It’s really the best version of the show.”

The aforementioned heart comes in the form of some developments in Barry’s love life — awkward double date alert! — while the metahuman Weather Wizard (played by Spartacus‘ Liam McIntyre) brings the fright.

Read on as Kreisberg and the cast preview S.T.A.R. Labs’ reaction to Wells’ identity, “WestAllen’s” future and more.

NOT-SO-MELLOW YELLOW | When Cisco realizes that not everything is adding up about the day that Dr. Wells battled Reverse-Flash, the S.T.A.R. Labs team will be forced to confront the idea that their mentor is more foe than friend. “Caitlin doesn’t want to hear it,” Danielle Panabaker shares. “Caitlin sees Wells through rose-colored glasses. Any [information] that he is not that perfect is going to be very difficult for her to believe.” Her colleague Cisco also “does not take very well to it,” Carlos Valdes describes. “It’s bad. And it’s kind of a snowball [effect] that starts” on Tuesday’s hour, which marks “the beginning of the end.”

But one person will remain in the dark about Wells’ true nature even as more intel is uncovered. “Barry doesn’t find out in this next episode,” Grant Gustin reveals. “People discover, and the audience discovers, a lot, but remember, time travel is also introduced in this episode… The audience learns a lot that they will continue knowing that characters might not necessarily know.” And whatever you think you know right now, forget it; Gustin promises “a twist with the Reverse-Flash storyline that no one has guessed yet. It’s going to surprise everybody.”

The Flash Season 1 SpoilersMATTERS OF THE HEART | “Eddie is not a jealous person,” Rick Cosnett argues, but he’s also “not stupid.” So when he and Iris run into Barry and Linda at the bowling alley, both the detective and the reporter will notice a little spark of something between their significant others. With Iris and Eddie’s romance “getting a little rocky, this is definitely another arrow in that pinboard, if you will. It unravels towards the end of the season in a very interesting way [that] people are not expecting at all.” As for Iris and Barry, “they will each be more honest with each other and it will complicate things for Barry,” Gustin reveals, “which will then complicate things between Barry and Linda, which will then also complicate things between Barry and Iris, which complicates things more between Barry and Linda.”

The Flash Season 1 SpoilersTHE WEATHER WIZARD, TAKE TWO | Spartacus hero Liam McIntyre’s Mark Mardon is out for revenge for his brother’s death, which is very bad news for Joe West but a treat for fans of the former gladiator. “I think people will probably be surprised at how good [Liam] is at playing the dark, evil character,” Kreisberg says. “We wanted a Weather Wizard who was more in control of his abilities and less beset by them… We’ve been really blessed with the Rogues, with the people that we’ve found and, hopefully, building up to one day having a real Rogues episode.” Because Mark is driven by his devotion to his brother, “it speaks to what Wells is going through,” Kreisberg adds. “You can be bad and do bad things and still care about people and still have relationships and still have love for other people. It’s why this episode feels so primal. Because everybody is acting out of love, in their own way.”

    Interesting! I’m definitely looking forward to the rest of the season and the developments regarding Dr. Wells. Sounds like there might be some developments in Eddie’s storyline too. Should be good!

  2. “snowball effect” hidden Killer Frost reference! #internetoverreaction

  3. tonnie says:

    Honestly I hate the romance in this show. Its just full of cliches and it doesn’t help the Iris character develop at all. Her and Eddie are the least developed Its probably the weakest part of the show.

    • Emme says:

      Surprising comment… haven’t heard this one yet, lol. YET, we know more about Iris than most of the characters of the show… so… keep trying.

  4. Luis says:

    I’m still waiting on the Mirror Master . . .

  5. danny_b says:

  6. Royal_Flush says:

    This all sounds amazing! Things get complicated for Barry and Iris? Im here for the angst! No one said aniIconic couple getting their happily ever after was going to be easy.

  7. amanda says:

    Westallen!!!! Barry & Iris is what I’m here for. So excited for the rest of this season!!

  8. Alyssa says:

    Woohoo! Excited for everything in this episode. I’m glad Cisco and Caitlin are going to discover Wells’ identity as the Reverse Flash. The special effects for the Weather Wizard should be very cool to watch as are all the special effects. :D I love WestAllen. There double date will be hilarious. When Barry and Iris officially get together, they’ll be such a power couple, especially now that Iris has begun her investigative reporter arc. I wonder what kind of information she’s going to find out during her investigation into S.T.A.R labs.

  9. Uniqke says:

    I can’t wait for this episode. The hiatus was too long. This double date seems like it is going to be so much fun and angst. I’m looking forward to Iris and Barry being more honest with each other as their story develops to become the iconic couple that is known in the comics.

  10. I can’t wait to see this double date! LOL! Awkward

  11. Everyone is hyping up this episode! Looking forward to Barry and Iris and Weather Wizard!

  12. Twist that no one has guessed yet… kinda obvious that Wells is gonna be someone connected to our guys in the present. He could be Barry himself (makes the most sense), or his son.

  13. Georgia Madman says:

    Looking forward to everything but Iris/Barry. Snooze….

  14. Cathy says:

    I am so here for Barry and Iris omg… westallen is adorable!!

  15. Sam says:

    I can’t wait till Barry and Iris are together and married! They are so iconic!

  16. Sara Jenkins says:

    This episode is gonna be INSANE!! I can’t wait to see the weather wizard, reverse flash, and of course WestAllen! Barry and Iris FTW

  17. Molly says:

    The Reverse Flash storyline is so great, and I cannot wait to see everything unfold. I’m looking forward to seeing Iris finally come to terms with her feelings for Barry so they can get married and create future flashes!

  18. Kristina says:

    Looking forward to the rest of the season with one exception–I like everything about this show except Iris. She might grow on me, but I really, really have no desire to see her with Barry. She’s like a poor man’s Lois Lane.

    • Krystin says:

      That’s a trashy comment. I think Iris is beautiful, smart, funny and any guy including Barry Allen would be lucky to have her. You must be some bitter white chick cause that sounds racially motivated!

    • Emme says:

      Of course you don’t… Kristina. Of course, you don’t… O_O.
