The Flash S&S #42: "Being The Flash, that's the best version of me. If I don't have my speed, I'll never be that person anymore."

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.

Unacceptable. lol IMO, it needs to happen after Barry finds his way back home. That's the perfect time for it.

I love TC but Harry is a flop character to me. I don't care about him or his daughter, lol. And as long as he's around, we're never going to see Barry mature into the leader he should be because the writers will always feel the need to dumb Barry down to make Harry (and Caitlin/Cisco) more relevant.

I've never been a fan of this version of "Team Flash" but there really needs to be some major shakeups going into S3, lest we see more of the same repetitive stories and dynamic.

i'm worried about not getting a kiss this season. imo, Kreisberg was way too vague and weird on that answer when someone asked about that, saying there'd be twists and turns regarding a kiss, but expect them to be moving forward.

that kinda sounds like a no to me. but why wouldn't they kiss??? it looks like they're together in the next episode, holding hands and all. Iris needs to know what it's like to actually kiss him, lol. plus, what would they be waiting for? and with two whole episodes left after next week? they're not going to kiss at all?

he needs to kiss her when he comes crashing back out of the speeforce and into her arms.

First mistake is listening to Kreisberg. lol Maybe they won't kiss before the season is over (I think they will) but I wouldn't base it on anything AK says.

I think there's a good chance for a kiss next week. We'll see.

This. But I think the bts stuff will influence them to keep things as they are so TC/DP keep their job. That's why I hope we get good Westallen in these eps in case the season final/s3 spoilers inspire me to quit, lol.

I would also like for Barry to call her "my Iris" soon, since that's his famous pet name for her in the comics. that would be so sweet.

he can say he needs to get back to her when he's in the speedforce. i do hope they bring up her being the lightning rod next week.

I'd rather the first time he calls her "My Iris" is in bed, like he's kissing her features one by one, just something very cute.

Love this.

I even thought it was adorable when he's being "particle acceloratored" lol again and he told Iris he was okay. It sounded romantic for as weird as that sounds. Thus, imagining him saying "My Iris" gives me goosebumps.

Yeah. I will be surprised if either aren't around next season. And I wouldn't have as big of a problem with that if I had faith in these writers to shake things up but...I don't. lol

God in heaven father Lord if I don't get a kiss this season. Unacceptable.

Scorpio, I agree. As much as I like TC, Harry is unnecessary at this point and he is preventing Barry from really stepping into the leader role and being more confident. He's a crutch and he needs to go. Jesse is really annoying at times, but other times I like her. At this point, Caitlin needs to go dark next season if DP is staying.

I see the point about Harry holding Barry back but I feel like that's their whole point, This version of Flash is the origin story, it's about him finding himself rather than leading, I fear we'll be waiting a long while for Barry to step up.. Having said that, TC just needs to be given a bit of a personality scrub.. but that should technically be an easy fix ...


Bringing this over from the last ..
Quote suitup
Last night and ep19 proved they don't need Caitlin. They didn't even miss her...not really. In all honesty the team would ebb and flow with Barry/Iris/Cisco alongside Joe/Harrison/Jesse. But she's not going anywhere. She just needs to become KF though.

I don't think Henry is useless. I think instead of Patty and LoT. 2A should have been West and Allen family. Barry/Henry getting a place, Henry getting a practice while still facing some backlash of his overturned convinction. Iris mom returning (no drug story) either a HIVE member something interesting then her leaving. Zoom having an actual good origin story. Cisco working for the CCPD. Iris and Barry actually doing their jobs.

Very true! I have grown to like Jesse though. The Wally/Jesse dynamic of them being the teens. BUT I prefer Linda 100% if I had to choose because that would open up the CCPN setting.

STAR Labs Team just takes up all the screentime. Is it a budget thing? But CCPD, CCPN and just general arcs outside of this week to week villain boringness.

2x20 was a good episode not only did it incorporate Cisco/Dante it had a continuing story of the particle accelerator situation and without his powers.

^ Lol! This. No offense but DP did get the job because of her friendship with AJK. It's time to move forward. Make her KF. The talking science mouthpiece is not needed. But somehow I still think they'll do the STAR Labs mess. It's their basic pointless formula.

I have no love for DP but the lack of concern the team showed when it comes to Caitlin is disturbing to me.
The character can be boring, irrelevant and replaceable to some viewers but Barry and company are leaving a FRIEND and member of the S.T.A.R. Labs crew at the mercy of a psycho. Being exposed to another PA explosion was probably Barry's only way to try to save Caitlin and I understand that it was super risky and they were were unsure but they weren't thinking of any other way to get her back and she was the one who begged Zoom to spare Barry's life.

Honestly, I hope a resentful Killer Frost is coming.
