The Flash S&S #35: May the new year bring new flavors and better storylines to our show!

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.

Tftnt. I was reading the last thread and why do people think Barry was a virgin? Isn't he in his mid 20s? I've never gotten that impression. Did I Miss something?

because of his behavior last season with Linda and the fact that he seems to have never had a real girlfriend before Patty. unless you count Becky Cooper.

it's not just this forum either, trust me. it was kind of a widespread question mark, lol.

ah. i guess i just assumed the thing with linda was him still being unsure of his powers. like when clark kent stopped having sex with lana without explanation after he got his powers back because he was afraid he'd blow a hole through her skull or something.

which brings up the question of why that problem seems to have disappeared as well...but i think they just really wanted to show that he's slept with at least one person before he and Iris get together, so the writers decided to ignore it. cowards.

Yeah, I feel like it was an easy assumption to make. As far as I can remember anyways, it seemed like he'd never had an actual girlfriend before Linda, being that he was all hung up on Iris and only tried to expand his horizons once she turned him down. The only other real option would be a one night stand, but Barry doesn't seem like the kind of guy who'd really have one night stands. He seem more of the relationship type.

It definitely feels like Patty was meant to give Barry some action with a girl before Iris, especially since he bailed on Linda. I prefer that though, especially if they decide to go the comics route and pair up Wally and Linda down the line.

The only real question mark is the deleted scene. Unless it's not their first time, there's no real indication from Barry that it IS his first time.

It didn't give me a first time feel at all tbh. I'd think Barry would've been a lot more eh excitable or uh impressed post-coitus if it had been his first, lol.

maybe Patty just doesn't measure up even to a first-timer.

I'm indifferent to Patty, but that is reaching.

My theory is that it was lackluster because it wasn't with Iris. I mean he may like her but there's no passion, at least on his part. He was probably thinking about Iris the whole time and then it was awkward because she's isn't Iris. And she thought it was nice because he wasn't really into it again because she isn't Iris. Now I'm the one that's reaching.

Tftnt.

Nah, even bad sex should be exciting his first time.

I just never got the impression Barry was a virgin, same way I didn't think Iris was a virgin pre-Eddie. They were both dating regularly, if not seriously. /shrug

see, i never got the impression at all that Barry was dating regularly. if anything it seemed like he wasn't because he was so hung up on Iris. and Linda's comments wondering if he'd ever actually dated anyone before.

i just got a real impression he hadn't.

Well it was a deleted scene, so casual viewers are not going to know Barry has had sex unless there's more in the next episode.
