The Flash S&S #39: Welcome to Earth 2

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 opening!

Would it be okay to make the title longer? (ie. Welcome to Earth 2....you'll never want to leave)

I liked E2 Joe more than I normally do E1 Joe. It just seemed like his true focus was his actual daughter which was wonderful.

They tried to fit in a explanation but of course it left us wanting more. His claim Barry was selfish (not untrue on Earth 1 either - still love him) the boy was juggling 6 father figures on Earth-1 and still claiming to be super abandoned.

In all honesty in the future seasons I'd like to see them clash - over Wally becoming the Flash and Barry enabling him. It would be really interesting instead of the weekly Joe coddling Barry same ole'

New Candice interview.

Quote:
TVLINE | What can you tell us about Earth-Two’s Barry that we don’t know yet?

I don’t know that I can tell you anything that you don’t already know, but he’s absolutely adorable! [Laughs] He’s absolutely adorable. And it’s sweet because he and Iris are just complete opposites. He’s a bit more reserved and conservative and buttoned-up, and she’s quite aggressive and I’d say even very sexual and proactive….. It’s nice to see how these two opposites really attract on Earth-Two. [This week], you’ll see that Earth-Two Barry, while he is very nerdy and shy and a bit reserved, kind of rises to the challenge. He wants to work alongside his wife to go find Earth-One’s Barry, even though he’s terrified. He wants to do this for Iris and show her that he’s got her back.
Why can't we keep E2 Barry?


Quote:
TVLINE | Might the events on Earth-Two ultimately have an effect on Earth-One’s Barry and Iris?

Yes — in the sense that there’s almost a seed planted, at least for Iris. This idea that they are married on Earth-Two and supposedly married in the future makes Iris start to wonder if maybe they are truly destined to be together.
So E1 Barry definitely tells her they were married. I guess the way she's put it, about them being destined no matter where does make it a huge thing...still wish she knew about the deleted kiss though.

Quote:
TVLINE | Meanwhile, back on Earth-One: What is Iris up to?

This is the introduction of Scott Evans (played by Tone Bell), her new editor at Picture News, and he’s very anti-Flash. He wants Iris to write a piece on how The Flash may not be the hero everyone thinks he is, which is quite the conflict for her, so she kind of negotiates with him: “Instead, what if I write a piece about this other Flash that’s out there fighting Geomancer?” So she heads over to S.T.A.R. Labs to talk to Jay and Caitlin to try to write a piece about him instead. All the while, they get into the thick of the terror that is Geomancer.
Haha, I love this. Should be fun to see her at STAR, interacting with Jay/Cait...also she'll probably be there for when Barry and others get back.

thanks for those!!

I'm so pumped for this next episode... Do you guys think they will find E1 Barry and return to E1 by mid episode?? seems like a lot may be happening over on E1 as per promo...

I love that Iris will start to question things but also kind of bummed it takes her seeing all these other versions of them first,.... I'd like them to let her feelings appear for herself not b/c destiny tells her so...

yeah, that was kinda my concern too...it almost seems like she's just going to cave in to all these "destiny" scenarios, rather than realizing that she loves Barry on her own. although, i guess she already did that in Out of Time, but of course she doesn't remember that either.

i wonder if the writers just can't figure out another situation that would trigger her own feelings. they didn't want it to be jealousy, so the Patty thing was useless to this whole storyline (although in reality, that probably should have been what triggered it, if Iris does have feelings deep down).

the other scenario would be the same thing that happened before, a life or death emergency situation- at this point they should probably just go ahead and do that again, so we can get there with her.

But i still think having Barry tell her about their kiss and her confession in the other timeline would be a lot more meaningful in getting her to this realization, because then she would know that it really was HER who already did this and felt this way, and that she would have left Eddie for Barry anyway, way before he died.

She definitely has those feelings, like you said she revealed them in OOT. I just hope the writers do them justice in the coming episodes...

I agree that she will have to be pushed by extenuating circumstances and it will happen again.. I wonder if she feels a little de ja vu??

A WA heart to heart with Barry explaining this to her would be amazing, even more amazing would be if Cisco could show her with his vibe powers

Thanks for the interview ParsD

Iris finds out they were married on the other Earth! I wonder how this will play into things. I really want her to figure out her feelings in a good way. I can't wait to see it happen.

Yeah I'm wondering when he returns also. Will it be at the end of ep14. I think it will be because we need to see Jay/Caitlin working to get the thing working and it pay off by them returning home.

i can't wait to see Barry tell Iris their other selves are married! and i'm actually sure now that was probably what AK was referring to, about Barry telling her something big. because it looks like that's what will start to make her look at him differently anyway.

wouldn't it be cool if we could get regular glimpses to E2, like how Arrow does the flashbacks or something? i don't want to leave it behind. or maybe not as much as Arrow, but like every other episode.

Thank-you ParsD for posting the interview

I am so going to pause the scene and have a conversation with myself before pressing play again

It will be so awkward and cute.

How is he going to tell her? What will he say?

Yeah that's most likely what Barry will tell her. Bigger than a kiss is MARRIED AF!
