6 Things We Want to See When Iris Suits up on'The Flash

Listed in the scripts as "Mystery Girl", fans have been theorizing on the identity of the character and executive producer Todd Helbing commented on the speculation following a press screening for this week's episode of The Flash.

During the Supergirl hour of "Crisis on Earth X", fans were introduced to a mysterious young woman who was working as a caterer at Barry and Iris' wedding. Since then, she's appeared twice on The Flash, each in a scene where she has an awkward encounter with members of Team Flash.

The fans are about to witness a role-reversal in the upcoming episode of the CW's "The Flash" season 4.

Every year there's theories all over the place about what we're doing and some of them get pretty close, some of them they hit like one part of it but they don't get other parts, so it's fun to read.
Helbing doubts that "anybody ever is going to guess exactly what it is".

Another theory that has been swirling around recently is that she may be the new Earth-3 speedster that Jay Garrick mentioned.

Thus far, the running theory is that she's Barry and Iris' future daughter Dawn, or granddaughter Jenni Ognats. Something tells us that Iris might adapt to having super-speed better than Barry will to all of a sudden being the "guy in the chair" back at STAR Labs. Why give Iris her own color scheme instead of just making her the Flash for a week? Are viewers in for another appearance from the Mystery Girl? In two visits to Jitters, she has crossed paths with Ralph (Hartley Sawyer), Harry (Tom Cavanagh), Cisco (Carlos Valdes), and Caitlin (Danielle Pakabaker).

The highly anticipated Flash episode "Run, Iris, Run" airs on The CW Tuesday, March 13 and we have some screen captures from the episode's trailer.
