'The Flash' Scoop: Barry 'Loves' That Iris Is The One Running Team Flash

Looks like Barry (Grant Gustin) might be that gushing fiance when The Flash returns next week on The CW.

After returning from the Speed Force, he’ll be met with a new dynamic within Team Flash — one that has his fiancee, Iris (Candice Patton), leading the entire team; and he loves it!

Showrunner Todd Helbing dished to TVLine that not only is Barry proud, “it’s a new dynamic that he’s walking into, so there’s a big learning curve.”

“It’s not just Cisco and Wells behind the command station, it’s the woman he loves. It’s going to take a bit of time for him to get used to that.”

Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg also spoke to EW about that dynamic moving forward.

“Barry and Iris keep comically clashing inadvertently because she’s used to being in charge, and he’s used to being in charge, and so they wind up going to couples therapy to work through it,” he shared, speaking about the second episode in.

“The two of them with the therapist is some of the funniest stuff we have ever done on this show, but it also leads to a deepening of their relationship.”

Andrew also adds having Iris run the show is a new avenue for them, and one that they’re loving.

“She’s always been smart, and funny, and proud, and brave, and eager, but she didn’t always have the authority that she has this season,” he says. “It’s really nice to see her making decisions, and telling people where to go, and what to do, and Candice has really risen to the challenge, as we knew that she would.”
