Beware of spoilers below if you haven’t yet watched The Flash’s midseason premiere, titled “The Trial of The Flash.”
Barry Allen is heading to a jail cell for the second time in Season 4, and while some fans may be worried about what’ll happen to him in there, it’s entirely possible that it doesn’t matter what he goes through in Iron Heights. Why not? Because this reality might not even exist. That’s right, I’m positing the initially ridiculous theory that Barry never actually escaped the Speed Force and that what we’re witnessing is actually Barry’s highly personalized imprisonment.
