SDCC 2017 Trailer Review #2: The Flash Season 4

Bring me The Flash or else your city falls.

The Flash’s trailer for its fourth season was released at the 2017 San Diego Comic Con.

It shows the impact of Barry Allen/The Flash’s (Grant Gustin) absence on the lives of his family and friends in a completely different way.

The trailer begins with Iris West (Candice Patton) narrating her story to the viewers. She has decided to follow Barry’s advice to become strong and move on.

It’s particularly interesting because Iris has been used mostly as a plot device in the previous seasons. Her character has a lot of potential, and so this is a fresh start for the fans as well.

Returning to the series are Team Flash members Detective Joe West (Jesse L. Martin), Caitlin Snow/Killer Frost (Danielle Panabaker), Cisco Ramon/Vibe (Carlos Valdes) and Wally West/Kid Flash (Keiynan Lonsdale).

Joe and Cisco are not reacting well to Iris’s decision, and are surprised to see her constantly reminding them that Barry will never come back.

The trailer also shows us that the team is back in action. They are fighting meta humans in the city just like good old days.

Last season, Barry was forced to go into the speed force in order to save Central City.  So, it was only a matter of time before a villain, in this case a Samuroid, demanded that Barry be handed over to him or else Central City will fall.

The team decides to bring Barry back and offer him up to the villain. Towards the end, we see that Cisco and Caitlin have successfully created a device to force Barry out of the speed force.

It is not clear whether Samuroid is the big bad this season, but here’s hoping that the producers will not make the same mistakes as they did in season 3.

Season 4 of The Flash will premiere on October 10th at 8/7c on The CW.
