With Iris' impending death looming over the heads of The Flash characters and fans, everyone wants to know whether she lives or dies. When The Flash returns, we'll see Barry travel to the future years after Iris's death to discover the identity of Savitar. But if Barry isn't going to the point when Iris' funeral happens, exactly whose funeral are The Flash characters attending in a new batch of leaked set photos?
The set photos from The Flash set (via Just Jared Jr.) show a bulk of the cast in all black, with everyone appearing sad and somber. We see Barry hugging Cisco and ,yes, consoling Iris as well. There are some pictures of folks laughing, but from the looks of it, some of these photos are likely a mix of the actual shooting of the show and actors goofing around between takes. Additional details from the film shoot indicate that Barry, Wally, Cisco, and Julian are all seen later that day at a cemetery surrounding a headstone. So knowing all that, who died?
Well, just judging from the pictures, I think it's safe and logical to rule out Iris for this funeral, since she's there and likely isn't a hologram. What I can totally see, however, is someone sacrificing themselves during the big battle with Savitar in an effort to save Iris's life! Who do we know that's both selfless and powerful enough to do that?
Obviously, Caitlin Snow is the most likely choice. Danielle Panabaker is the only major cast member not featured, and once you pick up on that, the rest of the pieces fall into place. Why is Julian, who's only been with the team a year, standing at the gravesite with only a few other members of Team Flash? How is the show going to resolve the full transformation of Caitlin to Killer Frost with only a handful of episodes left to go before Season 4? How does the Killer Frost character suddenly have regenerative abilities when no past version of the character has before?
These are all the questions we're asking ourselves while at the same time acknowledging we're not 100% sure the team is actually attending a funeral, or that Caitlin would be the one to die. The article mentions a grave site scene, but one isn't shown. Still, how many other occasions have you attended a get-together where everyone is wearing all black?
