There’s a theory online suggesting that The Flash Season 7 might see Barry Allen be replaced by a mirror copy of him which would be an interesting twist.
This rumour has been making the rounds on the Internet.
It was all kickstarted by a Screen Rant article in which the author claims that there have been hints that Barry Allen in Season 7 won’t be the Barry we know and love.
The Flash season 6’s finale has just been aired and it really did suggest the real possibility that Barry Allen might have been replaced with a Mirrorverse duplicate.
This is exactly what happened to Iris West-Allen in Season 6.
It wasn’t exactly made all that clear in Season 6’s finale.
However, it would explain why Barry’s behaviour was so strange.
It would also explain why some of his actions in season 6 were so out-of-character.
The Flash Season 7 could see Barry Allen be replaced by a mirror copy
Here’s what Screen Rant about that finale episode seems to tease Barry Allen is actually a mirror copy:
The fake Iris put on a great show, insisting that the real Barry Allen wouldn’t have spent a week avoiding talking to her after she kicked him out of their apartment and Barry was locked in a containment cell at STAR Labs until he finally convinced Cecile Horton to free him.
While the episode implied that the scanner was rigged to give the opposite result of the truth, it was never tested on a third party. As such, there’s a chance that the Barry Allen shown in “Liberation” really was a Mirrorverse duplicate.
