‘The Flash’ Recap: Barry’s Most Heart-Wrenching Failure Yet

Nick Paschal
Supervising Producer, Yahoo Entertainment

It was the final countdown, as this season’s penultimate episode of The Flash began with 24 hours on the clock until Iris’s death, which Barry was once again unable to prevent. However, this time around, it was even more heart-wrenching.

After sending Barry out on a caviar run, Iris secretly leaves him one last message, and it isn’t until the final climactic scene that the message is revealed. As Barry sprints to protect the woman he loves and save her from Savitar’s talon, Iris’s video is played simultaneously, revealing that the final message she left for Barry was her wedding vows.

Poor Barry. Not even his consistent selflessness and Dominator technology-infused Speed Force Bazooka could save his bride to -be from her inevitable fate. But on the bright side, we still have the season finale next week for Barry to, hopefully, save the day.

The Flash airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on the CW.
