Warning: the following article contains spoilers for Season Nine, episode one, "Wednesday Ever After."
Barry and Iris West-Allen act like married couple in their first episode of The Flash.
The couple wed during a Crisis on Earth-X crossover event back in 2017, and then had their wedding renewed in Season Seven's "Heart of the Matter, Part 2," which lasted until the series developed. Iris was stuck in the Mirrorverse for a good chunk of season seven, and her stay was shortened by the emergence of the COVID-19 epidemic, which pushed the series into a dead end.
Following their nuptials, viewers were dissatisfied with their lack of wedding bliss, but The Flash's season nine premiere, 'Wednesday Ever After,' seems to have addressed this problem. The couple wakes up to what they anticipate to be a normal day, but after the Flash confronts the new Captain Boomerang Owen Mercer, the couple experiences a tachyon feedback loop, forcing them to replay the same day over and over.
Barry and Iris are eager to see Barry and Iris happy for the first time.
Iris referring to her husband as "Mr. Allen" demonstrates their closeness.
In this episode, Barry and Iris demonstrate their domestic side as well as how at ease they are with one another.
Candice Patton and Grant Gustin have a palpable connection, and moments like this demonstrate this.
Barry Allen's main concern is for Iris West-Allen. Anyone who gets in his way will pay hell.
Iris no longer wants to try, and her responses are hilarious.
Barry and Iris are endgame since the pilot episode, but the story has been clear since. Barry creates a book that depicts their future together, which is filled with lovely moments.
Although Barry and Iris escape their feedback loop, Central City or Team Flash remain in danger. Red Death has partnered with Barry, and the evil speedster wants to eliminate everyone in his life. At the top of the episode, Barry dreames about Team Flash dying after confronting a lava monster, and this might be a bad sign for the Scarlet Speedster.
The Flash airs on The CW on Wednesdays.
