The Flash S&S #22: "May the Speed Force be with you."

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.

Thanks for the new thread and for that link too will go check it out soon!!

EDIT; Ok so i just had a read through… So does this mean that with the black hole circling the city, everything will revert back to the red timeline??? So it would in fact be as if Nora never died but the time with Eobard simply hasn't happened yet?? (Bree your avatar is perfect for how i'm feeling about this whole timeline business )

Naw, Barry is going to stop the wormhole. But even if he didn't, it wouldn't revert back to the original timeline, the whole world would simply not exist lol.

I don't think so- I do think, however it works, Nora is dead. That was the whole point of Barry's epiphany. He cannot save his mother.

Tftnt!

Re: the Joe/Barry discussion from the last thread, I have to agree with ParsD. The scenes didn't work for me for exactly the reasons mentioned. Henry/Barry was much more emotional and compelling, IMO, though I did love the "goodbye dad" moment near the end.

Hopefully next season, we'll see Joe acually fathering his daughter more, especially with Eddie dying. Iris will move probably move back in with Joe and Barry, which I'm looking forward to.

As for Barry getting another love interest, NO. Lol. I'm not seeing the point nor would I buy Barry wanting to date when he knows that Iris has feelings for him. No, Iris probably won't be ready to date any time soon but I don't see why he wouldn't be willing to wait. Certainly, I don't think he needs yet another love interest just because he's the hero/male lead. He isn't Oliver Queen.

This. To everything, but especially the bolded. (and thank god Barry isn't, since Oliver is the worst).

2.01-2 should be about Joe/Iris/Barry coming together to grieve, and for Joe/Barry to be there for Iris. I'm hoping for an angsty family scene, where they help her pack/move, paralleling the family scenes in 1.10.

don't the CW shows usually skip some time though btw seasons? i'm sort of assuming it will be five months later when the show starts again (i know we have to get to Barry saving the world, but i still think it won't all take place minutes later)

I'm not sure, since they left on a cliffhanger. Unless Barry gets lost in the black hole thing and time warps so a few months passed...

They could even delay Iris' moving to account for the summer break. And they don't even need a new set for Eddie's, they could just have her unpack in the West living room. But I'd be fine if Iris just ends up at the West house at the beginning of the season. She can move out into her own place when the drama with her mom hits.

Did we even see Eddie's place. Iris or Eddie was seen at the station, work for Iris or at the West residence or when she moved home briefly when she was fighting with Eddie...

I wonder what Iris's living arrangements will be. She might move home but then I could see they leaving her keeping Eddie's apartment or place so to keep some distance between Barry and Iris, especially if they aren't going to invite a hookup anytime soon. She has a job, so she likely could afford the rent. Or her father will help with the rest.

Having all them living in the West house makes it a little sketchy considering Barry considers Joe a second dad...

Unless Barry moves out, and if Henry becomes free, they move in together...

It will be interesting how they handle the aftermath!

Joe, Barry and Iris all living at home again sounds like something the writers would want to take advantage of, imo.

i've never really agreed that it's so weird for Barry and Iris to be into each other just because he lived with them. I think him being 11 when he moved in is plenty old enough to not have the Westermarck effect take place- and he moved out at 18 when he went to college, so really they only had their middle school and high school years under the same roof.

I think people only think it's weird because of how close Joe and Barry are- but that relationship doesn't really have anything to do with her. Just because he thinks of Joe as a father doesn't mean he has to think of Iris as a sister. It's a separate connection.
