‘The Flash’ spoilers: Grant Gustin’s Barry and … fun?

The Flash -Are you ready for the premiere of “The Flash“? Well, you are one of many. This show has long remained at the top of the list of things we are the most excited about, and this goes beyond the much-publicized pilot.

What we are excited about today is actually have a chance to talk about something other than the fist episode of the show in “Fastest Man Alive.” This is going to be the second episode of the show airing on October 14, and it will give you a better sense of Barry Allen adjusting to his new powers. What we think is also important here is that it will show the character actually having a little bit of fun for a change, as well. This is something we really don’t see enough of.

For some more, just take a look right now at the official synopsis:

“Barry (Grant Gustin) escorts Iris (Candice Patton) to a university gathering honoring scientist Simon Stagg (guest star William Sadler). When six gunmen storm the event, Barry changes into The Flash and tries to stop them. While he does save a man’s life, he passes out before he can capture the robbers, which frustrates him. As Dr. Wells (Tom Cavanagh), Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) and Cisco (Carlos Valdes) scramble to find out what’s wrong with Barry, Joe (Jesse Martin) comes down hard on Barry for taking the law into his own hands and risking his life. Barry realizes that it wasn’t six gunmen but a metahuman named Danton Black (guest star Michael Christopher Smith), who can make multiples of himself. Meanwhile, Iris becomes even more intrigued by the ‘red streak.'”

For those keeping track of the tie-ins with “Arrow,” there do not seem to be any in this episode. We know that Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) makes a cameo in the pilot, and the Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) will turn up not too long after that.
