“I learned here there can be no true despair without hope. So as I terrorize Gotham, I will feed its people hope to poison their souls. I will let them believe that they can survive so that you can watch them clambering over each other to stay in the sun. You can watch me torture an entire city.
And then, when you have truly understood the depth of your failure, we will fulfill Ra’s al Ghul’s destiny. We will destroy Gotham.”
Iris West is truly the heart and soul of the show. The future in the promo looks so from, it's not even funny. Starlabs is trashed (That is the one thing I hope stays true), everybody's gone their separate ways, Wally's confined to a wheelchair. Poor Joe must be devastated, but he's probably holding on. Now Barry.......No words, except he is a dead man walking without Iris. You kill Iris, you kill Barry.
