Barry resigned himself to losing Patty this week — was that another way to further narrow his focus?

Wells has challenged Barry and said “you’re never gonna be happy,” so to get Barry to a place where he feels like stopping Zoom is the only thing he can do, we wanted him to start losing things in his life that made him happy. We loved working with Shantel and she’s been such a boon to the show, but we felt like having Barry not be able to maintain this relationship was a step towards him feeling like his only recourse towards being happy was defeating Zoom. But we very consciously did not kill her, so there’s always the possibility that she’ll be back.

Episode 12 will focus on Wally (Keiynan Lonsdale) and Iris’ (Candice Patton) relationship. What else can you preview?

It’s a really interesting episode because Wally’s drag racing starts to become a real issue for both him and Joe. And Iris takes it upon her journalistic self to insert herself into the story. It’s really Iris driving the action in that episode and there’s some great emotion between Iris and Wally and a great scene between Joe (Jesse L. Martin) and Wally. As we said at the beginning of the year, because so much of the Allen family drama from last year was solved, it’s really been about the West family and these episodes with Wally and Joe and Iris all getting to know each other and trickily trying to navigate this insta-family comes to a head in that episode. 10, 11 and 12 are sort of the Wally-Joe-Iris trilogy and it’s a really great episode directed by Rachel Talalay who directed the last two years’ two-part season finales on “Doctor Who,” so I was obviously very excited to work with her and she is [so] talented, amazing and delivered a knockout episode.

In Episode 13, we’ll take a major trip to Earth-2 — how much of a fixture will that alternate universe be in the back half of the season?

13 and 14 are a two-parter. 13 is called “Welcome to Earth-2” and 14 is “Escape from Earth-2,” so the majority of those episodes will be taking place on Earth-2 and there’ll definitely be a couple more visits throughout the course of the season. We liken it to the time-travel plan that we had for last season which was to slowly let people in, and then once they understood it, to really start to embrace it. It was around this time last year that we did the big time-travel episode so we feel like we’re treading in those waters again where we’ve been hinting at Earth-2 and you’ve seen fleeting glimpses of it, but now the audience understands what it means and they’re able to step into it.
