FLASH Runs Right Into The Friend Zone With A New Featurette Looking At Iris West


TheFlashTVShowbannerThe official Facebook page for The Flash has unveiled the third featurette for the highly-anticipated CW series spinning out of Arrow. This time around neither S.T.A.R. Labs nor Barry Allen‘s new friends get the spotlight. This time Barry‘s relationship with Iris West (Candice Patton) is explored. Barry (Grant Gustin) grew up with Iris after his mother was murdered and his father was wrongly imprisoned, and it appears all those years together has planted him firmly into the friend zone. Part of the show’s approach seems to involve the ‘will they or won’t they‘ aspect of Iris and Barry‘s relationship and how it could turn from familial bonds to steamy romance. Comic book readers know the ultimate fate of Iris/Barry, but the show will take quite a while to get there. It will get even more complicated when Eddie Thawne sets his sights on Iris, making a rather interesting love triangle. What do you think about the new featurette?

After a particle accelerator causes a freak storm, CSI Investigator Barry Allen is struck by lightning and falls into a coma. Months later he awakens with the power of super speed, granting him the ability to move through Central City like an unseen guardian angel. Though initially excited by his newfound powers, Barry is shocked to discover he is not the only “meta-human” who was created in the wake of the accelerator explosion — and not everyone is using their new powers for good. Barry partners with S.T.A.R. Labs and dedicates his life to protect the innocent. 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.
