It’s THE FLASH versus Godspeed in season 7.

“There was a certain speedster who wore a white costume, whose clones kept showing up,” showrunner Eric Wallace said during the show’s expanded DC Fandome panel. “Team Flash had to deal with that, but we never caught the real guy or girl. Let’s just say we might find out that mystery this season.”

Playing into that will be why Godspeed is causing so much mayhem. “Godspeed, unlike, say, Reverse Flash, has no emotional connection, supposedly, to the Flash,” Wallace pointed out. “So the question is, why is Godspeed angry at the Flash? We got to keep the show fresh, we’ve got more to say.”

With this summer’s protests and calls for police reform, The CW series—which counts Joe West (Jesse L. Martin), a police captain, and Barry Allen (Grant Gustin), a forensic scientist for the department, among its main characters—will tackle police reform.

“The world right now is on fire; we have to look at what’s around us,” Wallace said. “It definitely informs specifically Joe’s story this season, but in a good way, and in a positive way because we need to be socially responsible as artists. Yes, I love comic books, and The Flash, but I’m a person first; we have to be people first and work together to make the world a better place. That’s where those changes are coming from. So you’ll notice some changes, definitely.”

On a lighter note, Joe’s wife, Cecile (Danielle Nicolet), will come into her own this season, too. “I think that it’s fair to say Cecile’s power’s up until this point have been passive,” Nicolet said. “I think going forward, we’re gonna see them evolving into something that’s more active. We’re gonna find Cecile exploring that and maybe struggling with it a little bit, and finding her way with it. And possibly getting herself into some trouble in the meantime.”

And with the show traditionally introducing a new version of Wells (Tom Cavanagh) per season, the COVID-shortened season ended with a new twist: all of the Wells doppelgängers are in his mind. So how might that play out?

“Radically, but super fun, and you’re not gonna see it coming,” Wallace teased with a laugh.
