DC FanDome 2020: Candice Patton promises West-Allen reunion in 'The Flash' Season 7, fans are relieved
At DC FanDome 2020, Candice Patton answered a burning question: Will there be a West-Allen reunion?
The Arrowverse has many treasured couples and leading the list is Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) and Iris West-Allen (Candice Patton) from the show 'The Flash'. However, in Season 6, West-Allen shippers were disheartened when the two were separated, as Iris was abducted into the Mirroverse by Eva McCulloch (Efrat Dior). A mirror-clone of Iris was installed in the real and for the longest time, Barry had no idea that this Iris lookalike was not his real wife. It took him to be kicked out of his house for him to finally get the hint. After a Terminator-ish fight with the fake Iris, Barry managed to get her emotional side and mirror-Iris softened. Unfortunately, Eva killed her before she could be her own person again.
Meanwhile, the real Iris has been stuck in the Mirrorverse and is slowly losing all sense of herself. The new teaser for Season 7 showed that Iris is seeing multiple versions of herself, which are a 'product of her broken mind', as one promised. A desperate Barry is ready to do anything to get her out of the Mirrorverse, and is trying to create an artificial speed force to save her. At DC FanDome 2020, Candice Patton answered a burning question: Will there be a West-Allen reunion? She said 'yes, definitely' and that they will find their way back to each other. So you can breathe, folks.
