The CW network has revealed The Flash‘s next episode trailer in which Iris West-Allen suit up as a female speedster. Season 4 made Iris’s persona as a head of Team Flash since the premiere episode and now Barry Allen has to take a lead when she is battling with a new enemy.
Check out new promo of ‘Run, Iris, Run’ from The Flash Season 4:
The preview of episode 16 starts with Barry who finds he has lost his speed. But concurrently Iris found that she may get his powers because of new bus metahuman. Also, she will get new sparkling superhero suit to counter heat energy which could damage her regular wearings.
Now Iris is a scarlet speedster running around the city with purple lightning energy, unlike Barry’s yellowish red lightning.
The official synopsis for the episode 16 is right below:
IRIS SUIT UP—
Team Flash confronts a new bus meta, Matthew AKA Melting Pot, with the ability to swap people’s DNA. During a battle with Team Flash, Harold transfers Barry’s super speed to Iris. Now, with a new threat unleashed on Central City, Barry must act as the team leader while Iris takes on the mantle of superhero speedster in order to defeat their new foe.
After a second season, Central City’s superhero will again have to go through a powerless position when he can’t do anything but to give proper heroic instructions.
It is obvious that Iris would find some trouble after getting sudden superspeed. Hence in the whole episode, Barry will have to teach her how to control these power by taking a lead of the Team Flash.
The Flash airs Tuesdays @8pm on The CW.
