The next episode, “Fast Lane”, which airs on Feb. 2nd, will see Barry team up with Wells to figure out a way to close the breaches, but they are distracted by a Meta-human nicknamed Tar Pit who can transform into liquid asphalt. Iris is concerned for Wally’s safety after she finds out about his drag racing hobby.  When he refuses to stop she makes a bold move that puts her in danger.
