Though Joe has started to smooth things over with the lad, “Wally still has some rough edges to be sanded down,” affirms EP Andrew Kreisberg. And that’s where Iris steps in, beginning this Tuesday — just don’t expect a 180-degree turnaround for the angry youth. “It would be a disservice to the character if suddenly everything was hunky dory with him,” says Kreisberg. When we met Wally, “He was about to lose his mother, the only family he’s ever known; he has this ‘instant family’ that is trying to figure out a way not to drive him away while also giving him the love that they so desperately want to give him; and he’s also a young man. All of that is a hard road to travel, and it is going to have its bumps and its miscommunications, but ultimately — and this is no surprise if you read the comics — it’s all heading toward a good place.”
Is there anything coming up for The Flash‘s Jay and Caitlin? –Justin
As we’ve started to see, Caitlin is determined to keep Jay from dying, having not had the same option the two times she lost Ronnie. “When Ronnie died, both times he was literally snatched out of Caitlin’s life. She had to stand by and watch, helpless,” EP Andrew Kreisberg notes. “But the problem that Jay is facing is [based in] biochemistry — her specialty — so she is determined to not let history repeat itself. Instead of being a victim of fate, she is now in the driver’s seat, and that creates a very different dynamic for her. It definitely lets her shine, while also showing a vulnerability to Jay. It’s always hard to see your heroes be weak, and in some ways it’s harder for the hero themselves, to need to be saved. ”
