  • At S.T.A.R. Labs, Team Flash determines that Barry needs to cover a certain distance (which looks to be approximately 30-40 feet) in .21 seconds to stop Savitar from killing Iris. They determine that this is not possible considering Barry's current speed improvement. However when Barry decides to train Wally to save Iris, Wally's listed speed is 1,881 mph, which was about equal to Barry's speed. This speed equates to approximately .5225 miles per second, which is about 2,758.8 feet per second. So in .21 seconds, Barry should already be able to travel 579 feet, which is much farther than the distance he needs to travel in order to save Iris.
