As The Flash season 6 ended early, the planned storyline was unable to fully play out as expected. The first half of the season leads into the “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover event with the other Arrowverse shows, as Barry and his friends try to stop the superhero’s predicted death. Of course, Barry manages to survive the Crisis, and the rest of the season revolves around Eva McCulloch (Efrat Dor), a quantum engineer trapped in an alternate dimension called the “Mirrorverse.” Eva tricks Iris into the Mirrorverse and enacts her plan to get revenge on her husband, Joseph Carner (Eric Nenninger), leaving Iris trapped and the team working to save her. Initially, the show planned to wrap up this storyline in season 6, but because of the pandemic, the last three episodes of season 6 will be the first three episodes of season 7.
At DC FanDome, Wallace teased the rest of season 7, hinting that Godspeed, the strange speedster who has appeared sporadically since season 5, will have a big role. He was originally supposed to appear at the end of the season 6 finale as a cliffhanger, but plans obviously changed. At the panel, Wallace stated that “there was a certain speedster who wore a white costume, whose clones kept showing up,” and “Team Flash has to deal with that, but we never caught the real guy or girl. Let’s just say we might find out that mystery this season.” (via ComicBook.com). The first and only teaser so far for The Flash season 7 was released at the same event.
