Barry Allen is done living in the past. It’s time for the Flash to turn his eyes to the future.

Flashpoint turned Central City upside down and inside out, depositing a ticked off Savitar in its wake. Kid Flash (Keiynan Lonsdale) is riding high on the speedster’s turbulent wake, but Wally’s newfound powers will put him on Barry’s (Grant Gustin) bad side when “The Flash” returns for its midseason premiere.

Can ‘The Flash’ save Iris?

No matter what sage advice “Flash”’s speedster eminence grise doles out, the Scarlet Speedster isn’t ready to ignore what he saw during “The Present”’s sneak peek at his future. While he kept Iris’ (Candice Patton) fate a secret at Christmas, the advent of Plunder (Stephen Huszar) will cause the truth to come out during Jan. 24’s “Borrowing Problems from the Future.”

“Barry is tormented by his vision of the future where Iris is murdered by Savitar.

When a criminal named Plunder shows up in Central City, Barry recalls the villain’s presence in his vision of the future and fears that if he catches Plunder, it will cement Iris’ fate,” The CW teased. “Confused about Barry’s hesitation to stop Plunder, Wally decides to step in as Kid Flash. Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) offers Julian (Tom Felton) a job.”

Whether or not Barry’s meddling (or lack thereof) proves efficacious remains to be seen.

For now, viewers should know that the Flash has only one goal and one goal only.

“Believe me, all Barry is thinking about right now is saving that woman,” Gustin promised.

Can Iris be saved on ‘The Flash’?

Between repairing his Flashpoint blunder, battling Plunder in the present, and worrying Savitar’s endgame, Central City’s speedy CSI has his hands full.

While we fully expect the god of motion to turn Barry’s world upside down more than once before the (potential) events of “The Flash”’s six-month flash forward, Savitar would be hard pressed to find any punishments worse than the ones he’s promised.

If the elusive baddie truly wants Barry to suffer, killing Iris would be his copestone. Of course, any psychotic speedster would look at the Flash’s current mental anguish as nothing more than icing on the cake.

Perhaps that’s why Savitar’s three-fold prophecy weighs so heavily upon out own minds.

Catch “The Flash” Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
