'The Flash' Season 6 Episode 17: Barry and Iris cry for each other, fans want a 'reunion of epic proportions'
The emotional West-Allen moment in 'The Flash' has fans reaching for the tissues
Sniffles and more sniffles. Barry West (Grant Gustin) and Iris West (Candice Patton) did not have the reunion that fans were expecting in the latest episode, titled 'Liberation', but the sight of them trying to talk to each other through the mirror has fans in tears. *Sigh*. In this episode, Barry struggles to piece together the mystery of the mirror clone pretending to be his wife and finally does so. Initially, in his attempt to expose Mirror Iris, the turns get turned on him because Mirror Iris is an expert at emotional blackmail and manipulation. Luckily for him, Cecile Horton believes him and rescues him for the lock-up where Mirror Iris banishes him to.
At the end of the episode, there is an epic showdown between Barry and Mirror-Iris. Though Barry has fading speed, he's somehow able to get through to Mirror Iris and realizes that she just wants to be alive. And then she bursts into glass pieces, leaving Barry crying in front of the mirror, hoping to get Iris back.
Fans are in tears and want their favorite couple from the Arrowverse to reunite again.
