Iris finally knows the alter ego of Barry Allen in “The Flash,” and Candice Patton is relieved more than anything else.
Meanwhile, the actress also teased spoilers for the series finale.
In an interview with TVLine , Candice Patton was asked for her reaction about Iris finding out the truth about the speedster.
“I was so relieved.
I was relieved for me, and for all of the fans who’ve been waiting so long for Iris to find out.
I was relieved for all the haters [Laughs] who just thought Iris was stupid and would never find out.
I was extremely excited to film this episode, and then for it to air,” she said.
Weighing in on Iris’ feelings after realizing that Barry Allen is the Flash, she said, “I think she’s shocked.
And now she’s putting everything together, all of those meetings she has had with The Flash on rooftops, at Jitters, and realizing that those conversations were with Barry.
Her whole world is kind of upside-down.” Candice Patton also teased “The Flash” spoilers as she revealed that Iris will confront Barry and Joe about lying to her.
“These are two men in her life who were supposed to be honest with her.
This is the only family that she really has, the people you’re supposed to trust the most, so for them to have been in cahoots….
She’s going to feel very, very angry and betrayed,” she added.
But with Iris knowing that Barry Allen is the hero she’s been having a crush on, will that intensify her feelings for her childhood friend? The actress claimed that Iris will realize that she still has feelings for Eddie and is now worried more than anything else after he was abducted by the Reverse Flash.
“She’s going to continue to be conflicted about her feelings for both men.
I mean, we havent seen anything from Eddie except that he’s a good man and he loves Iris and he treats her well, so she’s really in a difficult place,” she added.
