Well, as we draw closer to the premiere of the second season of the hit DC television series The Flash we are getting more news about what is going on in Central City. This news is about the role of Iris West after the events of season one!
Well, last time we saw Iris West in The Flash she was crying over the corpse of her boyfriend Eddie Thawne and her relationship with Barry was getting fairly intense being that he hid his biggest secret from her.
According to sources at Entertainment Weekly, Iris will not just be a member of Team Flash (which we all knew was going to happen). She’ll be apart of leading it since Eobard Thawne/Harrison Wells has bitten the dust.
Iris slides into [the role] very naturally,” said executive producer Andrew Kreisberg. “She’s a born leader. One of the best things in the premiere is Barry decides that he wants to work alone because he doesn’t want to risk anyone else’s lives, and Iris is really the one who gets the band back together again. She’s the only one who can stand up to Barry.”
With this news, it’s safe to say that Iris will be very different from Arrow’s Felicity Smoak who rarely ever took charge considering Oliver’s consistent stubborn tendencies to never listen to other people’s advice. It also seems that with the writers bringing in the whole “will they” or “will they not” love interest element into the series with Patty Spivot could definitely show that both characters are on entirely different paths.
