“We are (literally) The Flash” in the upcoming Flash episode “Run, Iris, Run.” As was reported when Iris’ suit was first revealed, Iris (Candice Patton) is going to be taking over as Central City’s speedster hero after Barry’s (Grant Gustin) powers get transferred to her during a fight against a new foe. Even though I’ve said before that Iris not being a meta (but still having a very important and central role to play) has been one of this season’s biggest successes, I’m sure it’ll be fun to see her in the fighting fray (and I want Joe to get super speed next!). However, Barry training Iris on being the Flash is likely to be less successful, as it is one of the things that he is the absolute worst at doing.
Check out 20 new photos below that gives us a glimpse of the action for the upcoming episode, but first here’s the official episode synopsis for “Run, Iris, Run,” which will air Tuesday, March 13th on The CW.
IRIS SUITS UP — Team Flash confront a new bus meta, Matthew AKA Melting Pot (guest star Leonardo Nam), who has the ability to swap people’s DNA. During a battle with Team Flash, Matthew accidentally takes Barry’s (Grant Gustin) speed away and gives it to Iris (Candice Patton). Now, with a new threat unleashed on Central City, Barry must act as the team leader while Iris takes on the mantle of superhero speedster in order to defeat their new foe. Harry Jierjian directed the episode written by Eric Wallace (#416). Original airdate 3/13/2018.
