What will happen

Much like his lightning rod Iris, Barry’s arc will actually play out pretty closely to how we just pictured it would – at least it will in the first half.

We know that the first three or four episodes of The Flash season 7 will be devoted to wrapping up the previous season – and, by extension, they are pretty much just the final few episodes of season 6. With that in mind, expect to see the Scarlet Speedster regain his speed and defeat Mirror Master, ending her and Black Hole’s short reign of terror over Central City. We also know that he will reunite with Iris after she escapes from the Mirrorverse.

The rest of the season isn’t quite so clear, but we can confirm that he will be facing off against Godspeed in the first half of the season (post-Mirror Master) and that he will more than likely serve as the first of multiple Big Bads. Reverse-Flash will also return to plague Barry at some point throughout the season as well.

The wild card that remains is the powerful and devastating threat he will unleash while defeating Mirror Master – one that threatens to tear the team and his marriage to Iris apart. Is this related to Godspeed and/or Thawne or is it another major player we’ve yet to meet (or an old one, perhaps?)

Happy days will be here for Barry and Team Flash, but the question is: With threats like Reverse-Flash and Godspeed nipping at his heels, how long will those happy days last?
