'The Flash' Season 6: Will Eva McCulloch's sinister plans tear Barry and Iris apart?
It's heading to an action-packed finale, which might make or break Barry and Iris' marriage, and pose a threat to the unity of Team Flash
Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) and Iris West-Allen (Candice Patton) have gone through some tough times, but this Mirror-Verse arc is proving to be their rockiest yet. As things stand, the real Iris is in the Mirror World and a clone has taken her place.
Eva McCulloch (Efrat Dor) is pulling the strings, though the real Iris doesn't know it yet. Iris still believes that Eva is a broken woman behind the mirror, who can't get back to the real world.
Of course, she is diabolic and will not let Iris get in the way of her diabolic plans, whatever they might be. The mirror clones, Iris and Kamilla are doing her dirty work, and no one has had much of a clue.
It's heading to an action-packed finale, which might make or break Barry and Iris' marriage, and pose a threat to the unity of Team Flash. Barry has had tough times fighting villains before, but this will promise to be a difficult battle. For starters, we're not even sure if Barry would have generated an artificial Speed Force by then.
Though Season 6 of 'The Flash' has been stuffed chock full with villains, it is clear that the overarching storyline is the Mirror-Verse plot and Eva McCulloch is turning out to be the big bad.
And now, Kamilla (Victoria Park) is behind the mirror too, as she almost stumbled upon the truth. Here's some comic history behind Flash's deadly foe. In the comics, Efrat Dor's character is based on Evan McCulloch, popularly known as the Mirror Master.
After Sam Scudder, he is the second man to take the identity of Mirror Master. Scudder was seen in Season 3. McCulloch technologies has also been mentioned in Season 5 with Jessica Parker Kennedy's Nora West-Allen searching for one of their mirror guns to stop Cicada.
This gender swap for the TV show has spiced things up. In the show, Iris meets Joseph Carver, the founder of McCulloch Technologies, who runs the organization to honor his wife who vanished mysteriously years ago.
What are Eva McCulloch's motivations exactly? And will Barry find out in time that he just has a Mirror-Verse version of Iris with him, while the real one is trapped?
To be fair, Barry's had many hints, but he's been so busy trying to stop the Reverse Flash and coming to terms with the death of the Speed Force, it's no surprise he hasn't really picked up on the changes in his wife's personality.
Except, Iris won't be too pleased to know that Barry could not tell the difference between her and a clone. You would think that Barry's real Crisis was the actual Crisis, but it seems as if it would be the crisis in his marriage. Will Eva Mc Culloch succeed in tearing Barry and Iris apart?
'The Flash' airs on Tuesdays on The CW at 9 pm.
