Iris West may have been the character kept in the dark for most of the first season, but she’s going to step into the light in a big way in Season 2. The death of Eddie and the strained relationship with Barry has left many fans wondering what we can expect from Iris coming up and now we have an idea.
Entertainment Weekly featured a quote from executive producer Andrew Kreisberg, who had the following to say on what’s coming up for Candice Patton’s character:
“Iris slides into the role very naturally. She’s a born leader. One of the best things in the premiere is Barry decides that he wants to work alone because he doesn’t want to risk anyone else’s lives, and Iris is really the one who gets the band back together again. She’s the only one who can stand up to Barry.”
So as Andrew’s quote basically reveals, Iris will essentially be filling the role of “team leader” that was once filled by Harrison Wells/Eobard Thawne.
Thoughts on this news? Are you excited to see Iris West in her new role in The Flash Season 2?
The Flash Season 2 officially begins airing on October 6th.
