The Flash S&S #18: Will Barry Save His Mother?

ϟThe Flash ϟ



Barry Allen was just 11 years old when his mother was killed in a bizarre and terrifying incident and his father was falsely convicted of the murder. With his life changed forever by the tragedy, Barry was taken in and raised by Detective Joe West, the father of Barry’s best friend, Iris. Now, Barry has become a brilliant, driven and endearingly geeky CSI investigator, whose determination to uncover the truth about his mother’s strange death leads him to follow up on every unexplained urban legend and scientific advancement that comes along.

Barry’s latest obsession is a cutting edge particle accelerator, created by visionary physicist Harrison Wells and his STAR Labs team, who claim that this invention will bring about unimaginable advancements in power and medicine. However, something goes horribly wrong during the public unveiling, and when the devastating explosion causes a freak storm, many lives are lost and Barry is struck by lightning. After nine months in a coma, Barry awakens to find his life has changed once again – the accident has given him the power of super speed, granting him the ability to move through Central City like an unseen guardian angel.

Barry has always had the heart of a hero and now he has the legs to match, but he quickly learns that being a superhero is not as easy as it seems -- and he can’t do it alone. While Barry struggles to understand his new abilities, the people around him also have to adjust to a new reality. Joe West, Barry’s surrogate father, is coming to grips with the fact that the world of the extraordinary actually does exist. Joe thought he understood what it meant to chase criminals, but now he’s facing opponents who can do more than just rob a bank, they can control the weather. Though he knows this remarkable turn of events is Barry’s destiny, every time Barry faces danger, Joe is terrified for his surrogate son. While Joe worries about Barry, Barry worries about Joe’s daughter Iris, and how his new life as The Flash will change their relationship. Iris and Barry grew up together, and she has always believed in Barry’s conviction that unknown forces were at work the night his mother was killed. Barry has kept his romantic feelings for Iris hidden, and now feels he must protect her by keeping his new identity a secret as well. And Iris has a secret of her own -- she has been dating her father’s partner, Detective Eddie Thawne, who is such a good guy, even Barry finds it hard to hate him. Still, there is tension between Barry and Thawne, who is jealous of Iris’ newfound fascination with The Flash and is determined to unmask him. Barry realizes that keeping the secret of his new identity separates him from Iris, even as her growing obsession with uncovering the truth brings her ever closer to The Flash.

Barry has found another kind of surrogate family in the team at Harrison Wells’ S.T.A.R. Labs. Wells himself is quickly becoming a second father figure to Barry, who learned about morality and justice from Joe, and is now learning about science and technology from Wells. Wells’ ultimate agenda remains somewhat mysterious, but Barry is excited by the grander worldview that has been opened for him, and the friendship he’s building with S.T.A.R. lab team members Caitlin Snow and Cisco Ramon. For Caitlin, who lost her fiancé in the catastrophic explosion, working with Barry is providing a much- needed sense of purpose and a way to deal with her grief. Caitlin’s excitement at seeing Barry learn to use his new power is balanced by her growing concern for his safety – she and Cisco have both learned that accidents have devastating consequences. Cisco was a close friend of Caitlin’s fiancé and secretly blames himself for the tragedy. A mechanical genius who comes up with amazing gadgets that help Barry control his speed, Cisco is happy to suddenly have a new project –- and a new friend –- in Barry.

While he struggles to combine these two very different groups of people into a crime-fighting unit, Barry is still excited every day by his newfound powers. He is also shocked to discover he is not the only “meta-human” created in the wake of the accelerator explosion – and not everyone is using the new powers for good. In the months since the accident, the city has seen a sharp increase in missing people, unexplained deaths and other strange phenomena. Barry now has a renewed purpose – using his gift of speed to protect the innocent, while never giving up on his quest to solve his mother’s murder and clear his father’s name. For now, only a few close friends and associates know that Barry is literally the fastest man alive, but it won’t be long before the world learns what Barry Allen has become…The Flash.

Question: Do you have any scoop on any DC heroes or villains coming to Arrow or The Flash? —Michael
Ausiello: I’ve got some explosive scoop on this one (you’ll see what I did there in a minute): Sgt. Bette Sans Souci – AKA Plastique – will make her way to The Flash this season.
The series’ incarnation of the metahuman is a fetching young redhead who was a bomb specialist with the Army before she was injured by an IED in Iraq.
Since being exposed to the Central City explosion, she can turn any object into a bomb with just a touch of her hand – not a bad comrade for The Flash to have on his team, eh? (Source)

What can you tell me about Stephen Amell’s cameo in the pilot for The Flash? —Kat
I can tell you that it’s a nice enough, if obvious, moment, where Barry seeks out the nudge he needs to be the hero he now can be.
Now, if I can interest you in some Episode 2 scoop, I am hearing that the second metahuman The Flash will face off against might make us all feel a bit… well, Mist-y. (Source)

Wally, is that you? lol
His backstory sounds more like Victor Stone/Cyborg: 1) High School athlete = he was a football player. 2) Connected to S.T.A.R. Labs = his parents were scientists at S.T.A.R. Labs who experimented on him to augment his intelligence. He went into athletics instead as a way to rebel against what his parents were doing. His father turned Victor into "Cyborg" when Vic was badly injured in a lab accident while visiting (read: confronting) his father at work (in the TV show, the "accident" could be the particle accelerator explosion).

I know Cyborg is supposed to be in the DC movies and may not be "allowed" on TV, but the backstory description fits him perfectly.

I'd love for him to be Wally West... but why would Wally be on the spinoff right from the start? He should start first on The Flash

He was in Smallville, sort of. lol

But I think it's Wally and not a pre-Cyborg Vic because of...

It'd make sense if Joe and Barry would come to be Wally's surprising affiliation.

So that should have woken her up the fact that those feelings for Barry were romantic. She doesn't need him to tell her that he loves her for her to realize it when she once saw him almost die.
Casually dating has nothing to do with romantic love, it's all about lust. The fact that Iris wasn't seeking romantic love, was clearly because she already had that with Barry. He was pretty much her boyfriend, except for the sex part.

And since Iris and Barry's love predates adolescence, I don't think the sex part being out of the equation is that weird.

Thanks for the new thread!

I feel like Iris was just so comfortable in her friendship with Barry after all these years and he never really said anything to her about his feelings so she never thought about him in that way. Once she was confronted by those feelings ep 15 showed that even though previously we didnt see it as her POV, she was in fact thinking about him and its very possible that she is just scared to give in to those feelings bc of "what if it ruins their bond" "what if it all goes bad??" There's a bunch of reasons why she doesnt want to acknowledge her feelings for Barry imo.

Well I still think they could play up them having a bond, only with the secret relative angle, we'd see it develop onscreen...hopefully. lol

Yes he was, but that was before the "new" DCCU, where rumour has it that Arrow had to kill off Deadshot because of the upcoming Suicide Squad movie (although I hope that rumour gets debunked. Deadshot was an interesting recurring character and I want him to be Not-Dead-Yet)

Still hoping it's Cyborg though

It could be. Wally was an auto-mechanic at some point in the comics, I think. But he needs to start on The Flash, not go straight to Legends of the Future (or whatever they're calling the spinoff).

Since Iris is an investigative journalist, she's the one who can help him figure out his family background in the first place. That could be how they bring them together.

Why? Barry, Cisco, and Caitlin all appeared on Arrow before Flash even aired. The spinoff sounds like a good place to introduce Jay and the plot that brings him to Central City. Because lbr, we'd never actually see that stuff in Flash s2.

I love Cyborg to bits, but I doubt we'll ever get him on TV. The same way we're not getting GL and Aquaman. Deadshot isn't anywhere near that big of a character so I doubt CW can even get the rights to do Cyborg.

Deadshot was hands down my favorite Arrow character, so of course he died, lol.

Someone almost dying is one of biggest things that will force someone to confront their feelings. So you can make sense of it this way but it doesn't make sense to me. True love I believe in would have come bubbling up and slapped her in the face. I know the show is claiming otherwise with their tidal wave love or is it?

If so many things need to take place for someone to realize they are in love with someone, then they aren't in love. This is my belief. Others are allowed to feel differently.

We're still on this? lol

To say that Barry nearly dying should have forced Iris to realize her feelings is to ignore the fact that she never had any reason to question the context of her love for him. How does one confront feelings that they never even recognized or thought of as romantic? It makes sense to me that it would take a combination of a confession from Barry and a near death experience for Iris to confront her feelings. That's hardly so many things.

If someone needs to be confessed to even realize that they love someone, it means that without Barry confessing his love, she never would have realized she loves him. And to me, that means, that is not real love. If someone almost dying doesn't shake you to your core and force you to reexamine how you feel about them, it's not real love to me.

Someone almost dies and that doesn't make you realize you're in love with them. In order to realize you love them, they have to confess their feelings to you. Then start dating someone else. Then the person they are dating needs to tell you how you feel about that person. Then your father's life has to be in danger. Then you have to think you're dying before you go, "Eureka! I'm in love."

This is not real love to me. But we are different people.

I know how you feel about the topic, i've read all the comments from the previous thread.. i just thought i'd add my two cents overall.. At the end of the day, perception is key. Not everyone sees love the same way..

Lol All those instances point to one thing, which is that Iris' feelings have been bury deep for a long time. Hence, why she has yet to accept said feelings. The writers using multiple scenarios to point this out throughout the season is merely their way of foreshadowing to the audience where the story is going. But if that isn't good enough for you or proof that it isn't real love, ok. Can't please everyone.
