Speed, as it turns out, might just run in the family, because probably the last person you’d ever expect to don some speedster leathers will do just that before the end of The Flash Season 4, just like her brother did before her.

That’s right, Iris West will suit up as a Speedster before this season is through.

Entertainment Weekly reports that “Iris West will be suiting up this season!” The whole thing will be “temporary,” but she’ll definitely “suit up as a speedster in a March episode.” They add “additional details as to how are being kept under wraps at the moment.”

This coincides with a series of recent leaked set photos that show actress Candice Patton in a black-and-white masked costume made of the same material as the many Speedster suits we’ve seen in the past. Better yet, the design scheme is refreshingly different from some of the repetitive suits we’ve seen in the past.

Wally's going to be so shocked.

Rumors say she was filming Episode 16 of this season when the photos were taken. Assuming the show doesn’t take any weeks off, that episode should air on February 27. So that’s close enough, right?

If the whole thing sounds almost too good to be true, that’s probably because it is. Why would she suit up for only one episode unless there was something suspicious going on?

Just because someone suits-up as a Speedster, doesn’t mean they’re actually a Speedster. Remember that time Harry pretended to be the dead Eobard Thawne, aka Reverse-Flash, but from when he wore the face of Harrison Wells all so he could try and tame a telepathic gorilla?

That's Harry Wells, not Harrison Wells or Eobard Thawne.

Maybe Iris gets temporary super-speed and dons the costume while Barry and the rest of Team Flash is out of commission? Or maybe she fakes the whole thing as part of an elaborate ruse? There are tons of ways The Flash might give Iris a reason to pretend to be a Speedster.

But who knows, maybe she does get super-speed but only wears the costume once before learning that she’s pregnant and retiring from the superhero game altogether?

No matter what the explanation is, we’re willing to bet that “Mystery Girl” has something to do with it.


The Flash airs Tuesdays on The CW at 8 p.m. Eastern.

One of the latest challenges to hit Fortnite: Battle Royale requires a steady aim and lightning fast reflexes if you want to succeed at the shooting galleries in this Week 4 challenge, though you’ll have to find them first. Less serious dancing is reserved for a totally different challenge this week.

Back in September, a huge Super Smash Bros. Ultimate leak listed 10 characters allegedly coming to the new roster. At the time we ranked, putting one possible addition from the Fire Emblem universe near the bottom of our list, but based on a compelling new argument it may be time to rethink that ranking.

Gone are the days of “search between” and “treasure maps,” because Fortnite: Battle Royale’s location-based challenges these days involve multiple steps and dancing on top of random landmarks. So where can players dance on top of a Clock Tower, a Pink Tree, and a Porcelain Throne?

Fortnite Season 6, Week 4 kicked off Thursday morning, and with it came the typical seven new challenges. This week, however, they’re all fairly difficult, or otherwise just involve a lot of work. The fifth challenge initially just reads “Dance on top of a Clock Towers,” but it’s essentially one of the multi-stage challenges that we’ve seen before. This time around, however, it’s a bit misleading because it doesn’t actually say “Stage 1” in the title.

With less than two weeks before Halloween, Epic Games is starting to get a little bit more festive with a new Fortnite: Battle Royale Challenge in Week 4. “Ring the doorbell of a house with an opponent inside in different matches” is a very wordy way of telling players to go trick-or-treating.

The Fortnite: Battle Royale Season 6 Hunting Party Challenge continues, and much like Week 3, the focus of the new secret loading screen is Fable, the character that looks like a badass Little Red Riding Hood. We’ve got all the details on how to solve this new loading screen puzzle and the secret this week, but just like in Week 2, there’s a secret banner instead of a battle star.
