Barry is out of the Speed Force in a new promo for Season 4 of CW’s “The Flash.”

The 30-second clip opens with a super-fast Barry (Grant Gustin) colliding with a pickup truck. The video then cuts to Cecile (Danielle Nicolet) leading Iris (Candice Patton), Joe (Jesse L. Martin), Wally (Keiynan Lonsdale), Cisco (Carlos Valdes) and Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) to a room where Barry (Grant Gustin) is recovering. Iris assures Barry that he’s home, and Cisco tells his friend that he made him a new suit.

The reunion is seemingly interrupted when a Samuroid arrives in Central City and starts looking for the Flash. In the comics, Samuroids are robotic samurai warriors built by the Japanese Baron Katana. Samuroids have indestructible armor, electrified swords and jet packs that enable them to fly.

At some point in the video, Iris tries to face the Samuroid down but ends up being abducted. Will the bed-ridden Barry be able to recuperate in time to rescue his fiancée?

Meanwhile, even though Barry looks disconnected in the promo, executive producer Todd Helbing told TVLine that Barry’s stint in the Speed Force actually allows the show to shift its tone in Season 4. “Barry’s time in the Speed Force let him deal with all of the baggage that he had the last three seasons, everything with his mom and his dad and Flashpoint. So when he comes out, he’s sort of left that all behind,” Helbing said.

“It does really allow Barry and Grant, in a lot of ways, to play these scenes with a lot more lightness to it,” Helbing continued. “The combination of the scripts being a lot more fun and more joke-ridden, and just the state that Barry’s in when he comes out, it’s really changed the show quite a bit. There’s definitely a comedic tonal shift that we’re really loving right now.”

Panabaker echoed Helbing sentiments during an interview with Digital Spy. “We’re filming episode 5 right now and there’s already a lot more levity to the show,” Panabaker said earlier this month. “It’s sort of getting back to our roots of Season 1, where it was a little bit lighter and there really was so much heart. So I’m excited to get to explore that a little bit more.”

“The Flash” Season 4 premieres on Tuesday, Oct. 10, at 8 p.m. EDT on The CW.
