The Flash will be racing back to television tonight, as the critically acclaimed superhero drama begins its latest season. We couldn’t be more thrilled about returning to Central City. Last season left us with many exciting cliffhangers, including the fate of Iris West-Allen, who was still trapped in the mirror dimension. Will season seven finally reunite the Scarlet Speedster and Central City’s greatest reporter?
Long hiatuses are rough, but it gave us plenty of time to reflect on things…like Barry and Iris’s relationship. Right now, they’re separated by an entire dimension. That would be enough to doom just about any marriage, but Barry and Iris have come back from worse before. Think about it. Iris and Barry’s relationship has survived the destruction of the multiverse, losing a child and dealing with a dozen variants of Harrison Wells. It doesn’t matter what is thrown their way, they’ve always come out stronger than ever.
