Things are looking rather grave when Barry pays a visit to the year 2024 in the next episode of The CW’s The Flash.
In “The Once and Future Flash” (airing Tuesday, April 25 and directed by cast member Tom Cavanagh), Barry — spurred by Abra Kadabra’s cryptic words — travels to the future to find out Savitar’s still-unknown identity, in the hopes of saving Iris. Upon his arrival in 2024, Barry encounters future versions of his Team Flash friends, who, in the wake of Iris’ death, have become very different people, profoundly impacted by their showdown with Savitar.
“It’s a future where Iris has been killed, and everyone is changed because of it,” Candice Patton shared during my recent visit to the set. And yes, Iris’ would-be husband is among those hit hardest. “You see this older version of Barry Allen that hasn’t really ever gotten over the death of Iris West,” says Patton. As Grant Gustin added, “He’s in shambles.”
