'The Flash' Season 6 Episode 19 Ending Explained: Barry's speed to Iris's location, here's all you need to know
It isn't surprising if fans have guessed that Iris has managed to come back to the real world
Spoilers for 'The Flash' Season 6 Episode 19 'Success is Assured'
It was always supposed to end as a cliffhanger. While it didn't essentially end with Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) saving Iris West (Candice Patton), it did get the team to unite and plan for a rescue mission and they seem pretty intent to do it — with or without Barry's speed. Except, in her quest to find out the location of Singh Iris is successful but she cries in pain, glows and vanishes in front of a bewildered Kamilla Hwang's (Victoria Park) eyes.
Meanwhile, after entering the real world, Eva McCulloch (Efrat Dor) kills her husband Joseph Carver (Eric Nenninger) and then announces he died in an effort to save her from a deadly international crime syndicate. As far as the Ralph Dibny (Hartley Sawyer) and Sue Dearbon (Natalie Dreyfuss) storyline goes, Eva frames Sue for Carver's death. With 'Success is Assured' being a makeshift finale, there are two questions the episode will have to answer in the upcoming season.
Will Barry get his powers back?
The most obvious answer is yes, but how? Will Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes) make some modifications to the artificial speed force machine that may result in Barry getting his powers? While this seems to be one of the ideas, fans have also heavily speculated that Barry still has the speed within and all he needs to do is channel it out. With Iris in grave danger, this would probably serve as the trigger for his abilities to return.
What happened to Iris?
It isn't surprising if fans gave guessed Iris has managed to come back to the real world. At the moment there is no explanation yet as to how she made it back and if she actually did it. It also remains to be seen if the neural dissonance has something to do with this. And Kamilla is still stuck in the mirror verse. Coming back to Iris, there's another interesting theory. Did she develop any meta-human abilities? It is certainly a possibility considering she was seen acclimatizing to the mirror verse.
For now, what we can be sure of is the fact that Eva still has some nefarious scheme planned and only time will tell how team Flash can save Iris and the world from the Mirror Master threat.
At the moment, there is no update on when Season 7 would release with production shut down due to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic. We're in for a long wait.
