The CW’s The Flash season 8 kicked off with a midseason premiere that put Barry and Iris’ children, Bart and Nora, in the driver’s seat of the storyline. Despite the fact that the episode “Impulsive Excessive Disorder” was light on the two series’ main characters, it was one of the best of the season. Yes, the events of the Armageddon crossover event will have an impact on the outcome. However, there will be some elements from last season that will reappear this season as well.

Take, for example, Iris’s case of time sickness. For the first five episodes of season 8, that storyline had been put on hold, but it will be brought back in a big way as the season progresses. Please keep in mind that their illness of Iris has been kept under control by Dion, also known as the Still Force. That, on the other hand, was only intended to be a temporary solution.
With the story picking up where it left off with that particular storyline, we can expect to be transported back in time as the emphasis on timelines takes center stage. Season 8 is going to be a rollercoaster ride, both emotionally and in terms of the usual superhero action, we’ve come to expect.
The Flash Season 8 Plotline
As we saw in the previous episode, the main plot of the show will revolve around Team Flash’s confrontation with the Black Flame, but there are a number of other plot points to be explored as the season progresses. You can get a better understanding of it by reading the official plot synopsis, which is provided below:
“While Barry and Chester may have discovered a way to prevent the Black Flame from harming anyone else, Caitlin decides to handle a situation on her own, potentially endangering even more innocent lives.” Interested in our articles also check out Lucifer Season 7: Is It Officially Released Or Not?

During her first year of university, Patton participated in CBS’ Soap Star Screen Test, a nationwide audition competition for university students to win a role on the CBS soap opera The Young and the Restless. She won a role on the show in May 2004. Patton and Ethan Rains were the winners of the contest. A starring role in the web series Sorority Forever and a supporting role in the independent film Commander and Chief were two of Patton’s 2008 acting credits.
