“The Flash” star Grant Gustin revealed that Barry’s ramblings in the Season 4 premiere will be explained later in the season.

“[Barry] was talking all over the place [in the season premiere], and elements of that will show up throughout the season — and may already have,” Gustin told TVLine and other news outlets during a press visit to the set of the CW series. “We’ll circle back, I would imagine, at some point this season and connect all of them for you. But yeah, that was all very important, everything he said at the beginning of the year.”

As revealed in the season premiere, Barry’s time in the Speed Force temporarily broke his mind. And as a result, he talked in nonsensical sentences and obsessively drew symbols everywhere. Some of the seemingly random thoughts Barry mentioned at the time were “Nora shouldn’t be here,” “Your honor, I’m innocent,” and “needing more diapers.” While these thoughts don’t make sense for the time being, some fans think that the phrase “needing more diapers” suggests that Barry and Iris are going to have twins that will end up becoming the Tornado Twins.

There are a couple of versions of the Tornado Twins in the comics, but the ones most fans are familiar with are Jai and Iris West, twin children of Wally West and his wife, Linda Park. Just like their dad, the twins are speedsters. “The Flash” has made subtle changes from the comic book canon since its debut, so it wouldn’t be a surprise if Barry and Iris are the ones who end up becoming the parents of the Tornado Twins on the CW adaptation.

In addition to Barry’s ramblings in the season premiere, viewers are also yet to discover why The Thinker (Neil Sandilands), aka Clifford DeVoe, is attacking Team Flash. Without revealing The Thinker’s ultimate objective, executive producer Kreisberg teased to TV Insider last September that DeVoe “has a need” for The Flash.

Fellow executive producer Todd Helbing also told TVLine that The Thinker is motivated by something personal that he experienced rather than a desire for world domination.

“The Flash” Season 4 airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. EDT on The CW.
