So far, “The Flash” has been a show that has played up a little bit of romance here and there with Barry Allen, but at the same time, we have not exactly seen them take the plunge, and throw the character into any sort of full-fledged relationship. Is it possible that we could see that change in the near future? Based on what we are hearing right now, we would say to almost count on it.
Speaking to TVLine, executive producer Andrew Kreisberg is kind enough to tease a variety of stories coming up, including the arrival of a new woman (at least sort of; she has appeared briefly played by a different actress) who could shake things up very much for him. Not only that, but we get a sense that Iris West may be starting to come to terms with some of her own feelings at the same time:
“As he gets a new love interest in Linda Park (played by Malese Jow), Iris’ reaction to that is going to be interesting … Certainly, there is no shortage of amazing women in Barry Allen’s life, including Caitlin and Felicity. Which girl actually gets to land him will be one of the surprises of the back half of the season.”
Do we think that there is a favorite right now to win Barry’s heart? We think that at the top of the list right now has to be Iris, just because of what happens in the comic books. However, it may not be until near the end of the season when they start to get a little closer. We’re obviously not ruling out Linda in the near future.
As for the other two, Felicity seems to be way too tied up right now with Oliver and Ray Palmer, and she is also a part of a different show. Caitlin is the most interesting possibility, at least in that there is some chemistry there, and the SnowBarry ‘ship is extremely popular with fans. With that being said, does the show want to throw a romantic spin on every single female character Barry’s age? That would put us in that direction.
We don’t have too great of a preference; we just want to see what happens.
