The Flash S&S #6: "The world may need The Flash but...I need my Barry Allen." - Joe West

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.

The duo plan to steal a multi-million dollar painting, but Cold has another agenda while in town – to set a trap for The Flash. Snart and Mick kidnap someone close to The Flash and threaten to kill them unless The Flash shows up for a battle of fire and ice. Barry tells Joe (Jesse L. Martin) he isn’t sure he should take on Snart again after the casualties that happened the last time they fought. Meanwhile, Barry asks Dr. Wells (Tom Cavanagh), Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) and Cisco (Carlos Valdes) to help him double his training efforts so he’s ready for the Reverse Flash when he returns to Central City.

Question: Do you have any scoop on any DC heroes or villains coming to Arrow or The Flash? —Michael
Ausiello: I’ve got some explosive scoop on this one (you’ll see what I did there in a minute): Sgt. Bette Sans Souci – AKA Plastique – will make her way to The Flash this season.
The series’ incarnation of the metahuman is a fetching young redhead who was a bomb specialist with the Army before she was injured by an IED in Iraq.
Since being exposed to the Central City explosion, she can turn any object into a bomb with just a touch of her hand – not a bad comrade for The Flash to have on his team, eh? (Source)

What can you tell me about Stephen Amell’s cameo in the pilot for The Flash? —Kat
I can tell you that it’s a nice enough, if obvious, moment, where Barry seeks out the nudge he needs to be the hero he now can be.
Now, if I can interest you in some Episode 2 scoop, I am hearing that the second metahuman The Flash will face off against might make us all feel a bit… well, Mist-y. (Source)

Apparently, Greg Berlanti and Marc Guggenheim wrote a movie script for a Flash movie that got scrapped after Green Lantern flopped.

This reddit post and blog provide summaries of the script. Together, they provide a lot of details.

There are a lot of similarities between the movie script and what we've seen so far.

Reverse Flash
The Wells character is Eoboard Thawne in the movie. There's a lot of superhero mythology that would be better read by oneself, lol, but the gist is that Eoboard and Flash are arch-enemies in a different dimension. In that dimension, Barry's parents are alive and he's happily married to Iris so Thawne who hates this goes back in time to kill his mom. However, he derives his powers from Barry and since Barry hadn't gotten his powers by then, he has to wait 15 years while building the particle accelerator. Then he'd be able to steal Barry's powers and return to his timeline. He also wants to destroy the world and make Barry's life a living hell. He wears a black suit.

Barry/Iris
Similar to the tv show, they grow up together after Barry's mom's been killed and his father imprisoned. However, both have feelings for each other but never act on them. We really haven't had a good POV of Iris's feelings so while it looks like she only sees him platonically, it's possible that there could be more. In the movie, she's engaged to a banker called Nathan Newbury. It seems this happens at the beginning of the movie and before Barry gets his powers. At the engagement party, Iris's sister Mary and Barry have the same talk he had with Joe in Episode 5 (she expected Barry to marry her sister and there's the "too slow" line).

There doesn't appear to be a major confession halfway through but Barry has a love interest called Valerie (last name Miller on reddit, Perez on the blog). She seems to be based on Bart Allen's love interest Valerie Perez. I think she's split into two characters on the show: Caitlin (with a little Cisco) and Linda Park (Wally West's love interest).

She's a scientist who plays an instrumental part in Barry become The Flash and they bond on their love of comic books - he's a Jay Garrick (first Flash) fan. Iris gets jealous when she sees them at a bar together and while they sleep together, it ultimately doesn't go very far because she can tell that he's in love with Iris.

Nathan and Iris break up after she learns that he's involved in money laundering and keeping this a secret put them in danger. Flash saves them from Cap. Cold (who's the other major villain) who attempts to kill them. He leaves a note for the paramedics on how to treat a frozen Nathan which is how Iris learns his identity (from his handwriting).

Valerie is killed by Thawne after she learns that he plans on stealing Barry's powers. I hope Linda Park doesn't share the same fate. But perhaps Caitlin learning of Wells' true motives could turn her to the dark side?

Eddie is Nathan in the sense that he's the guy Iris is serious with but he's obviously not a banker. I wonder if the Eoboard Thawne character has been split here because I don't see what purpose Eddie will serve in the story once Iris dumps him. So he must be on the TV show for an additional reason. I also don't think he will be killed off if he's Well's ancestor.

Some other similarities/twists:
Barry unravels a tornado like he did in the Weatherman arc.
Iris is a fired reporter-turned-blogger who writes about "The Guardian." She and Barry have a falling out when she refuses to stop writing about him.
RF threatens to kill Iris if he doesn't back off much like he did to Joe on the show.
While Iris loves her fiance Nathan, she also loves Barry and is his #1 supporter.
Barry also gets his power from the particle accelerator but he doesn't go into a 9-month coma.
Valerie makes Barry's suit without Thawne's knowledge and it appears that he is in the dark about what she and Barry are working on together. Barry does wake up at S.T.A.R Labs and Thawne and his scientists help him much like on the show.

Other things
Barry and Iris work together to investigate Cold. He also confides in her after her life is threatened and she encourages him to keep fighting.
While they are best friends who didn't pursue a relationship despite mutual feelings, they apparently lost their virginity to each other. LOL. Well, I seriously doubt that's the case on the show but it's possible that we might later learn that they are each other's first kiss which might have taken place due to something cliche like a game of spin-the-bottle.
RF or "Zoom" in the movie, breaks out all the inmates from Iron Heights jail. I wonder if he will do the same with the ones in S.T.A.R labs.
It seems like Barry's boss, Chyre plays more of the Joe West role. Barry was raised by the Wests but it doesn't seem like the Joe character featured prominently in the movie. Chyre is executed by Cold on live television and I hope Joe doesn't bite it the same way. Oddly enough, I expect Joe to die by the end of the season.

The movie ends as one would expect: Barry beats Thawne and destroys the particle accelerator (there's another one) and he and Iris embark on a romantic relationship.

Anyway, that's the summary of what I read. I guess now we'll have to see what else from it ends up on the TV show.

Very interesting... Thanks for posting!

I know Berlanti, Guggenheim and Geoff Johns are working on the new Flash movie script as well. Will be interesting to see what similarities, if any, exist between that version and the old script/tv show.

Anyway, that's the summary of what I read. I guess now we'll have to see what else from it ends up on the TV show.
Thanks, it sounds interesting.

I don't know if anyone here reads the Flash TV tie-in comic, but based on the latest issue, I have a feeling The Flash's heroic ways and the existence of metahumans will become very public knowledge shortly after the show comes back from hiatus.

I'd post an image, but I'm not sure if the TV tie-in comic images are allowed in this thread. Could someone let me know? It's directly related to something that will happen in upcoming episodes of the TV show.

Ok I looked in the post you made in the main forum and yeah it definitely looks like the Flash's heroics will become public knowledge.
