Will Iris West get a wedding in the Season 3 premiere? Candice Patton has shared a photo from her first day on set of The Flash Season 3, and it appears to suggest that Iris is getting married!
Candice Patton recently spoke with melty in an exclusive interview about what makes The Flash different from other superhero shows, but she certainly didn't let this one slip. Candice Patton has shared a photo on her Twitter account from the first day of filming for The Flash Season 3, and it appears to suggest that Iris may be getting married in the season premiere. In the photo, Patton has her make-up on and is donning a tiara of beautiful flowers, but it looks professionally made, and not the sort of tiara that you make on the spot when you go down to the park with your friends. This is the sort of floral tiara that doesn't at all look out of place at a wedding, and while it's possible that Patton has one lying about, a more likely explanation is that Iris wears such a tiara with her wedding dress in The Flash Season 3: Episode 1.

So how is this possible? Barry said that he's not ready to date right now but he does still love her, and so she goes off and gets hitched?! Something tells us it's not quite as simple that. Grant Gustin has previously let slip that The Flash Season 3 premiere is titled "Flashpoint", which is a clear reference to a significant event that occurs in the comics. We won't spoil the specifics of the comics for you, but the general gist is that in going back in time to save his mother, Barry has changed the timeline significantly and so everything is different upon his return. With this in mind, in the Flashpoint universe, could Barry be about to marry Iris? Or perhaps Eddie Thawne is back? Tom Felton has joined the cast as a series regular so Julian Dorn is also a candidate, but whomever it is, let's just hope it's not Hunter Zolomon! How do you think Flashpoint will affect Season 3?
