“Initially, Barry is pretty scrambled when he comes out of the Speed Force,” Grant told EW. “He’s not himself, he’s talking nonsense. The way I see it, when he was in the Speed Force, he experienced his whole life laid out in front of him from start to finish. So in some sense, he comes out very wise, kind of knowing everything, but he has no understanding of what he’s seen, so he comes out very jumbled and talking what he thinks makes complete sense, but just nonsense to the rest of the crew.”

EP Andrew Kreisberg added, “The most important thing about Barry this year is that the experience of being in the Speed Force was a bit of a baptism for him. The premiere episode is called ‘The Flash Reborn’ and Barry, in a way, has been born again. His experience in there has really washed away a lot of his sins and cleansed him of a lot of his doubts, his fears, and his guilts, and it really is leaving him free and clear to just have an open road and a fresh start. He really loves being The Flash again.”

“A huge weight has been lifted and he’s forgiven himself again of all the mistakes he made the last couple years and people that he’s hurt,” Grant agreed. “He’s ready to move forward with the team and move forward with Iris [Candice Patton] and be happy Barry again and save Central City.”

“I’m having fun with it, just getting to laugh things off a little bit more again as the character,” Grant shared. “When we see a bad guy that rolls around, a villain of the week, it’s not such a daunting task. We can have a little bit of fun taking down these guys now.”

“It’s not in the titles, but every one of these shows – whether it’s Supergirl, Arrow, or Flash – it really is like Arrow Begins, Flash Begins, and Supergirl Begins,” Andrew said. “Now it’s season 4 and he’s really become The Flash in the comic books, the one who really is in full mastery of his skills and has the emotional maturity that he has in the comics.”

The Flash returns October 10 on The CW!
