“The Flash” Season 3 may or may not feature an Iris-Barry love story given the events in the Season 2 Finale. However, Candice Patton, who plays Iris West, teased that it could still happen, since Iris had promised to wait for Barry.
Patton teased what could still be a romantic story between Barry Allen and Iris West in the third season during a Q&A at Dallas Comic Con’s 2016 Fan Expo on Saturday, June 4. The actress was asked what Iris would say to Barry had he told her about his decision to save his mother from the Reverse-Flash. Patton said Iris would still promise Barry that she would wait for him as long as she knows that he is coming back.
“It’s interesting because they have a great relationship in which she’s really supportive and loyal to Barry. I think had he told her, she would have said exactly what she said to him on the patio of their house, which is that, ‘Whatever you need to do, wherever you need to go, do it. I’ll be here when you get back,’” Candice Patton said in the video below.
Barry’s decision in the Season 2 Finale could have adverse effects on the timeline; including his relationship with Iris. There may not be an Iris-Barry love story at all in “The Flash” Season 3, since it could mean Eddie is still alive and Iris still engaged to him. Either way, the events in the timeline may have already changed when he comes back.
Regardless, Grant Gustin teased that an Iris-Barry love story can still happen in “The Flash” Season 3, despite the events in the Season 2 Finale. Gustin hinted Barry’s feelings for Iris will not change. The actor took to his Twitter page and wrote that Barry will never forget his first kiss with Iris and her promise that she would wait for him. Candice Patton agreed and thought the patio scene was a memorable.
Also — Barry knows that talk and that kiss happened no matter what. (one of the most beautiful – comic book like shots ever)
