The Flash Spoilers & Speculation #58: “I’m XS. How schway is that?” - Nora West-Allen

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.

thx for the new thread!

5x01 — finallyyyyyyyyyyyy some high stakes for us to emotionally get invested in the outcome of this whole problem...I hope Barry doesn’t tell Iris right away, I just don’t think it’d be realistic after how they left things off at the end of the episode...but I wouldn’t put it past Iris to figure it out if Nora keeps acting out towards her.

Overall a pretty great premiere, probably my favourite behind the Pilot!

Perhaps but he needs to tell her. She deserves to know. (Btw, she should know, she has seen the newspaper. Just like Barry should have known.)

Oh of course she deserves to know & if he doesn’t tell her soon I suspect she’ll figure it out on her own anyway (she’s smart and capable of that much), I just enjoy the angst & Grant/Candice usually knock it out of the park.

Anyone else worried that Nora's going to end up being some Flash Fangirl instead of Barry/Iris's daughter? I hope not, but you never know with this show...

I wonder if Barry disappearing forever has to do with Flashpoint. I mean, we know he was always meant to go back in time and save himself from Thawn, but that one event (his mother's death) has been messed up so many times. I mean, Barry has returned there for different reasons at least 4 times (future Barry, season one Barry, season 2 Barry and Flashpoint Barry).

I believe him vanishing for a while has to happen, but he could return. After all, we know an older Barry, who had lost Iris, recorded a message for the Legends, even though that newspaper still existed with another byline. So, in that other future Barry did return, which means he still could. He has to disappear, but he could come back.

Thawne lost his connection to the speed force, so he couldn’t get back to his time. Maybe the same thing happened to future Barry after he saved his younger self.

As for Nora. She came from one possible future. Same as when Barry went to the future where Iris had died and the team had broken up. But since things changed that future never happened. Nothing is written in stone.

I’m more than a little worried that RYAN CHOI makes Barry’s future suit as that implies Cisco is not around to do it himself 👀 ....

If you felt like The Flash‘s first scenes between Iris and the grown daughter she has yet to even conceive were… well, whatever the opposite of schway is… Candice Patton is here to reassure you that the kid’s gonna be alright.

In the CW series’ Season 5 premiere, “There was a fun moment between us at Jitters, where Iris is just so desperate to try to relate to her daughter,” Patton recalled for TVLine at The CW’s Fall Launch event at the Warner Bros. lot. Clumsily wielding 2050s slang, for example. “She’s trying to pretend like she gets it — she wants this connection so badly — but Nora is just not interested, based on things that are happening in the future.”

While acknowledging that such awkwardness is “fun to play” as an actress, Patton shares, “I always worried, ‘I hope this doesn’t continue over the course of the entire season,’ because I don’t think fans want to see Nora (played by Jessica Parker Kennedy) and Iris at odds for too long.

“Thankfully,” she continues, “it won’t be that way for very long. We’ve got a couple of episodes where Iris and Nora are finding their way, and then we see them kind of reconcile and get on a really great path.”

In the meantime, Iris will be “constantly doing things to reach out” to her not-so-little little girl, Patton previews. “She’s that parent that’s like, ‘What can I do? I just want you to like me and for us to have a good relationship.'”

A good part of the need for that affirmation, Patton says, comes from Nora representing “an indication to Iris that Barry and Iris in the future finally get their happy ending. I think that’s always been a question for Iris and Barry, with the jobs that they have: Will they get married? Will they have the family they always wanted? And Nora coming back is this beacon of hope for Iris that, yes, they finally get it all. So yeah, she wants it to work.”

Of course, viewers, along with Barry and Nora, know that standing in the way of that happy ending is the fact that Barry not only vanishes in 2024, but will remain missing… possibly forever. That secret between father and child will only keep “for a little bit,” Patton says, so don’t worry that the truth is a time bomb waiting to blow up WestAllen.

“We’ll get into that sooner than later,” Patton promises. “I think fans will be relieved to know that Barry doesn’t hold onto that information for too much longer. No more secrets on The Flash!” (With reporting by Vlada Gelman)

It might be something as simple as Cisco not having the tech to shrink a suit like that, rather than Cisco not being around (trying to stay optimistic ).
