Iris will begin to move on from Eddie's death in the back half of season 2.

Just before "The Flash's" midseason finale, Iris West's boss Erik Larkin met an untimely end. Now, Iris has a new boss: Scott Evans, as played by Tone Bell -- and even his anti-speedster rhetoric can't dampen his chemistry with her.

"It's interesting, because [Scott] can't stand The Flash," executive producer Andrew Kreisberg explained to TVLine. "He thinks The Flash is a phony, and he has a great storyline about why he doesn't believe in heroes anymore. So, whereas Iris has become a little bit like Lois Lane [as] The Flash's biggest booster, her new editor is dedicated to taking some of the shine off [The Flash]."

Kreisberg revealed Evans' anti-speedster views will "lead to a lot of conflict," but "there is chemistry between them."

Additionally, there will be more developments in Iris' relationship with Barry. "Barry has a much bigger thing that he's going to have to tell her coming up soon," Kreisberg shared. "Things are going to change for them in a way that I think [is] going to make fans happy."

Starring Grant Gustin, Carlos Valdes and Jesse L. Martin, "The Flash" returns Tuesday, January 19 at 8 pm EST on The CW.
