Sorry, Barricity fans. It’s threatened to happen a couple of times now, but wedding bells are finally ringing in The Flash season 4. Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg has confirmed that Barry (Grant Gustin) and Iris (Candice Patton) are tying the knot in the upcoming season.

But Kreisberg’s words to Entertainment Weekly should make us all pause for a moment:

“They are finally going to get married this season and then it’s going to be: Can they stay married with everything that’s coming up against them?”

It’s all in line with the producers’ promise of a more lightheaded and fun season. But of course, there’s still the small matter of Barry being trapped in the Speed Force. And once that’s over, there’s the usual parade of supervillains and baddies that Team Flash regularly takes on.

Look out for at least one episode where the bad guys kidnap Iris and force Barry to make a choice between her and the city. After all, it won’t be the first time… 

The Flash returns Tuesday, October 10 on The CW.
