Who are Clarke and Emily in Barry season 4 episode 5? Things are never straightforward in the world of Barry Berkman, and the latest episode introduces us to two new (sort of) new characters who require some explaining.

People come and go in the world of Barry fairly often, usually because he kills them. Throughout the episodes of Barry season 4, we have seen shocking plot twists and deaths, a prison break, and even a Guillermo del Toro cameo.

Who are Clarke and Emily in Barry season 4 episode 5?

Clarke and Emily are the new names Barry and Sally have assumed after escaping their past life. The new episode of the drama series sees Barry season 4 time jump ahead eight years into the future, where Barry and Sally have started a new life in the Midwest.

Given their transgressions, the pair have taken on new identities in an attempt to stay hidden. It’s not clear at this stage whether this was part of some kind of witness protection deal Barry Berkman may have negotiated, or if the two took it upon themselves to conceal their past.
