'The Flash' Season 6 Episode 18: Iris makes goodbye video for Barry again, teary-eyed fans fear she'll die
Iris's goodbye video to Barry has brought back some unpleasant memories for fans
This season of 'The Flash' has been consistent in punching fans in the gut. It started with Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) preparing Team Flash for his impending death in the Crisis, and then the Crisis itself, where the world was destroyed and rebirthed again. Then, showrunners hit Barry where it hurts most. They tested his relationship with his 'lightening rod', Iris West (Candice Patton), who has been trapped in the Mirrorverse for half the season. In the previous episode, Barry finally figured out that Mirror Iris wasn't Iris and battled her, but with his dying powers, it wasn't enough. He got through to her emotional core, just before she exploded into a million pieces.
In the latest episode, Barry is visibly distraught and devastated without Iris. And she is pining away in the Mirrorverse as well. She makes a video for him again, saying how much she loves him. This is an unpleasant throwback to the third season, where she did the same, right before she was almost killed by Savatar. This eerie scene has fans in jitters now, and there's much worry about whether something is going to happen to Iris.
A fan wrote, "So you’re telling me this is the second time Iris has made a video telling Barry how much she loves him in case something happens to her?! What’s the CW trying to do give me a heart attack or a stroke?! #theflashseason6 #TheFlash."
"NOT IRIS LEAVING A GOODBYE VIDEO MESSAGE FOR BARRY MY HEART #TheFlash" wrote another upset fan.
The neural dissonance is beginning to take a toll on Iris and she might not have much time left. "#TheFlash #6x18 The good news is that Iris found Kamilla. The bad news is that the neural dissonance is starting to really take its toll on her. Barry & #TeamFlash need to hurry & get them & Singh out of the Mirrorverse before it starts tearing their minds apart. Hurry up, Cisco!" another fan tweeted.
Meanwhile, fans are just generally sad that their favorite couple is going through such a hard time. "Omg... Barry basically said he feels like his world is over because Iris isn’t there with him," tweeted a fan.
The finale to Season 6 of 'The Flash' airs on Tuesdays at 8 pm on The CW.
