New Flash and Arrow spoilers have emerged! Entertainment Weekly posted details about Iris’ (Candace Patton) new role for The Flash season 2 in their weekly Spoiler Room column. TV Line on the other hand revealed new intel on Arrow season 4’s new big bad Damien Darhk (Neal McDonough) on Inside Line.
The last time we saw the Flash’s Iris West, she had just lost her boyfriend and was still working as a journalist. Now that Dr. Wells is gone however, Iris will be joining S.T.A.R. Labs. EP Andrew Kreisberg describes Iris as a natural born leader, which is exactly what the show needs now that the lab no longer has one:
“She’s a born leader. One of the best things in the premiere is Barry decides that he wants to work alone because he doesn’t want to risk anyone else’s lives, and Iris is really the one who gets the band back together again. She’s the only one who can stand up to Barry.”
Meanwhile, in the newly re-branded Star City, Arrow fans will be getting to know Damien Darhk right from the season 4 premiere on October 7th. While he’s not exactly hiding in the shadows, Darhk doesn’t have a public persona according to EP Mark Guggenheim which makes him a bit different from other Big Bads in the show’s history. He will be attending a VIP event though. So it sounds like Mr. Darhk may have a few things in mind concerning Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) and co. this season.
