"The Flash" star Grant Gustin said that Barry will continue to be an optimistic character even after his father's dead.

"We've seen him in darkest places, but the thing about Barry Allen, The Flash, he's an optimistic character and he's kind of way of life is to keep moving forward and to stay as positive possible," Gustin told TVLine when asked how dark Barry is going to be after Zoom (Teddy Sears) killed Henry (John Wesley Shipp) right in front of him last episode.

"I think it would be harder for him going into season 3, but I think we'll still see Barry fighting for his optimism and trying to move on with his life," the 26-year-old actor added of his character.

In his separate interview with ComicBook.com, Gustin said that Barry's past tragedies will help him deal with Henry's death.

"He lost his mom at a young age, he saw her right in front of him, then went back in time and watched it again ... he'll find a way to deal with this," the "Glee" alum said. "He's not going to let it ruin him. It's going to be hard to come back from this one, but he'll stay optimistic Barry."

In his interview with TVLine, Gustin also shared his reaction when he found out how exactly Henry was going to die.   

"I didn't know when or how exactly it's going to happen," Gustin said. "So when I read episode 22 for the first time ... it looks like the episode is over and everything is fine. Reading it, I was like, 'Surely it won't be in this episode because there's only half a page left.' [But] when it happened, I literally threw my script and grabbed my head."

As for what's in store for Barry in season 3, Gustin said: "I haven't thought about Barry or where he's going since we ended. It was such an emotional ending that I needed a break from the character but before Comic-Con I'll talk to our producers to kind of figure out what's going on with season 3."

"The Flash" season 2 finale, titled "The Race of His Life," airs on Tuesday, May 24, 8 p.m. on The CW. Check out the synopsis and trailer for the episode 23 below:

"Season 2 ends with Zoom revealing his true plan and Barry vowing to do whatever it takes to stop him."
