The Flash S&S #49: "Look deep inside that big, beautiful heart of yours. You'll find the answer you're looking for."~ Joe

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

What irked me about that ending was Iris saying I'll go stay with my dad (the absolute safest option) and Barry going, "oh nah I'll stay with Cisco, how bout you stay in this huge apt by yourself..."

This break up made about as much sense as supergirl breakup with James

knowing what we know now, that barry broke up with iris and they might not be back together till the finale....if you watch the future scene where savitar has a hold of iris, is it just me or is there a bit of tension between barry & iris as if they probably hadn't been speaking up to that point-- the "barry, i love you" "no don't say that, you're gunna be alright" part...i could be reading into it, but i'd like to hear what other people think (rewatching it with different context changes it a bit)

Thanks for opening Christine

***

I didn't really get the impression that they hadn't spoken for a while, but that they had a lot of things left unsaid between them. Which is why she cried she loved him, as if she needed him to know despite what was happening between them that she loved him regardless.

The breakup doesn't make much sense and Barry didn't explain it well to Iris why he's deciding to, but at least we can be sure they are getting back together. They love each other. And hoping to see him train hard and beat Savitar!

Thanks Christine for the new thread.

TFTNT!

So they reluctantly confirmed at paleyfest that episode 19 will have Barry travel to the future to visit "the futute flash" to learn how to save iris (the episode is called THE ONCE AND FUTURE FLASH)...no doubt this is where we'll see that graveyard scene we saw grant filming a couple weeks ago. lol the audience member asked a question about it and kreisberg tried tk dodge answering about episode 18 & how the team will grapple with letting Abra Kadabra go to learn Savitar's identity (obviously they dont do that)...cause then Candice was like THEY ASKED ABOUT 19 NOT 18

I hope there's a smack down with our Barry and Future Barry because they both need to get some sense knocked into them .

I really don't want Savitar to be Barry. I just really don't want it. At all.

I think they could do a good job if it is, or even Wally....I don't want it to be the Star Labs janitor that's for sure....or like Julian or HR I think that'd be dumb

The show is mashing up so many comic stories it's hard to know what direction they're going in, but ep 19 is entitled THE ONCE & FUTURE FLASH (another really good Mark Waid comic) and supposedly Barry is supposed to travel to the future to find out a key piece of information on how to beat Savitar...

In the comics, after Barry dies, Reverse Flash travels back in time & disguises himself as Barry and makes a mess of his relationships...Wally figures out that it is not Barry back from the dead it is in fact RF & he learns to let go of what is holding him back from being fast enough to defeat Reverse Flash -- he's scared of replacing Barry (he's dead at this point) & Barry's memory -- and he becomes fast enough to defeat RF

Anywho I think they're gunna use the disguise element from the comics in the show, once Barry learns who Savitar is he might use HR's hologram tool to impersonate that person, just some speculation haha
