Barry Allen messed up a lot recently in The Flash. At the end of Season 2, he stupidly had the idea to go and save his mother in the past, thereby resulting in a Flashpoint universe. When he tried to fix it, there were still plenty of changes left that could not be undone.

But of course, that didn’t stop him from trying. The majority of Season 3 saw him trying to do that very thing, and mostly failing. The very end of it saw him disappearing into the Speed Force, almost as a penance for all the bad he’d done.

Speaking with EW, The Flash executive producer Andrew Kreisberg compared that move to something quite interesting.

“The experience of being in the Speed Force was a bit of a baptism for him. His experience in there has really washed away a lot of his sins, cleansed him of his doubts, fears, and guilts, and he really loves being The Flash again.”

The Flash Season 4 will see Barry Allen return to Central City, and if Kreisberg’s word holds true, it sounds like we will be getting a much more confident and at peace Flash this time around. While this will be a nice change of pace after the last season, we certainly hope he doesn’t get too zen to the point of being boring.

We’ll have to wait and see.

The Flash returns to the CW on October 10, 2017 at 8/7c.
