There are some symbols written on the wall by Barry but what is the meaning of those is still a mystery. Must be it connects to the Speedforce continuity. Later In that image, we get to see a full photo of Barry Allen with his beard look and seems unable to speak initially.

According to Grant Gustin, at first, Barry will be a little bit struggled when he returns to his home. But he didn’t specify what would be his mental condition because he has been writing some weird symbols on the wall.

The next scene leads us to the point where Vibe, Kid Flash and Joe battles with unknown Samuroid who want the Flash eagerly. Don’t know why but this will be the surprised for us. Here is the image of Samuroid along with his outfit:

As we can see Caitlin being in the bar which actually working in the bar as a bartender. To get away from science-flash things, her icy powers and for the move on into a different life, Caitlin seems to decide to work on the bar.

Next image shows Cisco try to convince her to get back in the team flash as they need her to the team flash. And hence this looks like Cisco manage to conceived her because, in the promo, she is with team flash when Cisco try to get Barry out from the Speedforce.

In the above image, Caitlin talking with an unknown guy who is the same guy that Catlin smash his head into the counter of a bar in the previous Comic-Con trailer. The person is no other than Hunk Norvock from the comics who sets Clifford DeVoe down the evil path who become the season’s big villain.

In the comics, in his first major case as a Lawyer, DeVoe was up against Norvock in court but it didn’t go well which lead him to alcohol. Once when he was drunk, he visits Norvock who was a mob boss and offered his service as the Thinker.

After that DeVoe actually worked for him for a while. Sometimes later like 10-15 years, Norvock tries to kill DeVoe but get tricked by shooting into the steel mirror. But unfortunately, bullet rebound and killed himself. Police decided to file this case as a Suicide.

Later DeVoe voted as their new mob boss to be their new crime leader. This caused to the birth of The Thinker. So that’s all in the comic. But Norvock could play the important role in the show which helps to set the background of Clifford DeVoe.

But that’s not going to happen until Episode 5. So till then, we have to just wait and watch. In the very same episode, there will be the introduction of another criminal Blacksmith who controls the underground black-market. So Norvock might be involved with her.

So what do you think about this extended trailer of The Flash Season 4??? Will Flash runs faster than before after learning the secrets of the Speedforce???
