The Flash Spoilers and Speculations Thread #15.

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.

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)

"Something will happen at the end of Episode 7 of Arrow that will send the Arrow team to Central City and they will discover it was a wider plot, which will drive them all back to Starling City," executive producer Andrew Kreisberg tells me. (Source)

Spoilers and speculations for this show, the characters portrayed on this show, and the storylines written for this show should (and can) be discussed at the spoilers and speculations thread for this show here at Spoilers.

Nobody dictates how much (or how little) spoilers and speculations of a character, a couple or a storyline is mentioned, discussed or talked about here, especially when such discussions is not against forum rules and policy.

And, STOP with the sarcastic and condescending pictures and/or gifs in response to another poster's viewpoint or opinions. A person does not need to be taught a lesson or "schooled" to agree with your opinion.

Thanks for the new thread.

And I agree with you guys that it would be more palatable if Cisco stumbles upon Thawne's technology and maybe tweaks it a little.

Strange thought, but I wonder if the glasses allow you to only see yourself/things that happen to you in a different timeline or if they allow you to see what happens to other people.

Because if Cisco found out that Caitlin becomes KF in another timeline, I'm not sure he would tell her.

Just catching up on all the latest news and I love that Candice basically confirmed that Iris will discover the truth on her own and that we'll get more friend moments Between barry and Iris. The latter hasn't been played enough, especially in the second half of the season.

I'm wondering why there's no video of the sizzle reel this time around. Even DC entertainment hasn't posted it.

This account is definitely making the SnowBarry fans happy.





I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

I'm glad she discovers the truth on her own and I hope she's piiiissed.

And I'll wait and see about the kiss. Barry doesn't even view Caitlin like that, so it just seems out of nowhere.

A Barry/Caitlin kiss would be extremely odd and seem like it's coming from nowhere.

Yeah, it just seems like they want to maybe ~recreate~ Oliver/Felicity with those two and I'm not here for that.

Is Cisco ever going to get any love?

Meh I love Olicity but I'm not down for SB. I don't think Danielle and Grant have that great of chemistry, and nothing on screen has shown me that they have even looked at each other in that way. Barry has only had eyes for Iris, even when with Linda.

Plus, I want an Iris/Caitlin friendship which isn't icky and weird because they have both been with the same person.

I don't think this has been posted yet.



The fact that she's holding the box makes me think he never proposed and she simply found it. You usually don't return an engagement ring in the original packaging, at least not on tv (they love to show the women taking the ring off and handing it back)


I kinda don't want to see the new promo, because the last one got me excited for eddie's possible storyline and now it seems like there's nothing really there. I wonder what they're planning for him???

lol. I know, right?

"It don't like it." Might be stuck in the old timeline.
Punch - wiped away by lightning psychosis.
"you might be hiding something from me." Barry's lie.
Shooting cops - metahuman.

I thought he had a great arc. I hope it starts soon.
