The CW has released an extended trailer for the fourth season premiere of “The Flash”. The new season sees Barry (Grant Gustin), having spent the last six months in the Speed Force, returning and fairly scrambled.
Gustin describes to EW what happened to his character:
“Initially, Barry is pretty scrambled when he comes out of the Speed Force. He’s not himself, he’s talking nonsense. The way I see it, when he was in the Speed Force, he experienced his whole life laid out in front of him from start to finish. So in some sense, he comes out very wise, kind of knowing everything, but he has no understanding of what he’s seen, so he comes out very jumbled and talking what he thinks makes complete sense, but just nonsense to the rest of the crew.”
Once he gets over his confusion, producer Andrew Kreisberg says the experience is essentially a baptism for Barry and offers him a fresh and more confident start:
“His experience in there has really washed away a lot of his sins and cleansed him of a lot of his doubts, his fears, and his guilts, and it really is leaving him free and clear to just have an open road and a fresh start. He really loves being The Flash again.”
“The Flash” returns on Tuesday, October 10th.
