During this week's episode of "The Flash," Barry decided that Wally would be the person to save Iris in the future. Iris also discovered a new sense of courage in the episode, once she realized she couldn't die until Barry's vision was fulfilled. This sense of courage put her in crosshairs of a weapons smuggler, who almost took her life.
In this promo for next week's episode of "The Flash" titled "Touch of Death," Iris is infected by a new metahuman named Clive Yorkin. Yorkin's powers allow him to suck the life force out of people, which will land Iris in the hospital.
Wally will attempt to save her, but it looks like he will be too late. Is this a sign of things to come for Wally's training? Can Iris die before her encounter with Savitar in the future or is this just a temporary set back?
