Death may be coming for The Flash‘s Iris a lot sooner than four months from now.
Barry’s lady love appears to be in critical condition in these photos from the CW series’ Feb. 7 episode (airing at 8/7c), which finds someone other than Big Bad Savitar threatening the reporter’s life.
Clive Yorkin (guest star Matthew Kevin Anderson), a criminal metahuman who kills by causing people to decompose at an accelerated rate, sets his sights on Joe. But it’s another West who suffers when Iris gets caught in the crossfire.
Elsewhere in the hour, when not fretting over his girlfriend, Barry steps up Wally’s training in the hopes that Kid Flash will become fast enough to defeat Savitar and save Iris from her deadly fate in four months’ time — assuming she survives next Tuesday’s crisis.
