Tonight, The Flash finally returns for its midseason premiere, and no, things won’t be improving for Barry. When we left off, Barry accidentally traveled to the near future and saw Savitar murder his girlfriend. Tonight, he and the rest of Team Flash will try and figure out how to save her. Speaking with TV Guide earlier this week, co-showrunner Aaron Helbing said that Iris’ death will weigh heavily on Barry’s mind. “To be honest, that’s going to be a huge driving force for the rest of the season, trying to garner as much information as they can from that event. And they’re going to do whatever it takes to save Iris.”
