"The Trial of The Flash" is the tenth episode of the fourth season of The Flash, and the seventy-ninth episode overall. It aired on January 16, 2018.


As Barry's trial for the murder of Clifford DeVoe begins, Iris and Joe must decide how far they are willing to go to keep Barry out of prison.[1]


  • The title is a reference to the comic book storyline of the same name.
  • Barry's rambling from "The Flash Reborn" came to light through the repeating of the words, "I'm innocent, Your Honor; I didn't kill anyone".
  • Anton Slater opened his first speech regarding his prosecution of Barry with the words "For you to understand what it is I'm about to tell you today, you need to do something. I need you to believe in the impossible." This echoes the very first line said in the show during Barry's monologue in "Pilot".
