'The Flash' Season 6 Episode 17 'Liberation' synopsis: Will Barry finally get a hint about Mirror Iris?
The real Iris West (Candice Patton) has been fretting behind a mirror, while a mirror clone has taken her place in the real world and in Barry's life. Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) has no clue and to be fair, he has been so worried about the Speed Force dying that he can be forgiven for not noticing the very telling signs in his wife.
Iris has been trapped in the Mirror-Verse for the past few episodes with Eva McCulloch (Efrat Dor). And now Kamilla (Victoria Park), who almost stumbled on the truth, has been zapped there too.
It has been a while and fans have been eagerly waiting for a Barry-Iris reunion. The synopsis for Season 6 Episode 17 is out and promises some new changes for our favorite couple. The synopsis reads, "HUGE CHANGES AHEAD FOR BARRY AND IRIS – After recent events, Barry (Grant Gustin) takes a closer look at his life with Iris (Candice Patton). Eva (guest star Efrat Dor) makes a bold move. Jeff Byrd directed the episode written by Jonathan Butler & Gabriel Garza (#617). "
Episode 17 will air on April 28. The whole CW schedule has had to be shuffled around due to the coronavirus pandemic that has been sweeping the world. Episode 16, 'So long, Goodnight' airs on April 21, where one of the leads is kidnapped. Apart from this, we will get to see the return of Sue Dearbon (Natalie Dreyfuss). Iris will finally become suspicious of Eva and realize that she isn't exactly the mopey and heartbroken woman that she pretends to play. All in all, the next few episodes promise to be an exciting and emotional time for Team Flash as well as for the fans.
Speaking to TV Line, showrunner Eric Wallace warned that Barry and Iris will face 'their rockiest' time yet. "Barry and Iris are, indeed, about to experience the rockiest month of their marriage so far." He also warned that when Barry learns about the truth of Mirror-Iris, it could have tragic consequences, and this could lead the team into an entirely new direction.
