Last season’s The Flash was a bit of a mixed bag for many fans. I myself had a hard time caring about what was going on after the season break, especially since all the problems were thanks to Barry being all kinds of dumb and selfish.

Rather than letting things lie in his world, he had to go back and time and save his mother, and when he finally changed things back to the way they were supposed to be, there were still irreversible differences that threw a wedge into the friendships between him and his friends and family.

The conclusion of last season saw Barry sacrificing himself, and hopping into the Speed Force. By running into it, he stabilized it, thereby saving Central City, and perhaps the world. But of course, that left Central City without a Barry Allen. Taking up the mantle of The Flash in his place is Wally West. Sadly, he’s no Barry Allen yet.

As such, the group has to work together in a capacity they have never done before. Cisco is on the ground with Wally, helping to bring down the baddies, while Iris looks to be helping them out from STAR Labs. But in a series that began with Barry Allen as the main character, there’s no way he’d be out of commission for long.

Now, it’s up to the group to come together and find a way to bring him back. In the new extended trailer from The CW, it looks like Cisco is gung-ho about bringing him back, but Iris isn’t quite as optimistic, and seems worried about putting too much stock in that idea, and seems determined to move on.

Of course, Barry is returning is an inevitability, though while he’s returning, he may not be the Barry Allen we all remember.
