So far this season, “The Flash” has implemented a variety of familiar faces into guest roles, whether it be someone like Wentworth Miller from “Prison Break,” a fellow CW star like Robbie Amell, or even someone like John Wesley Shipp who is well-known from the original CBS TV adaptation of the comic.
On the upcoming February 3 episode entitled “Crazy for You,” we are going to have the first confirmed appearance of Malese Jow of “The Vampire Diaries” in the role of Linda Park. She’s a reporter who is going to be an important player in shaking up the romantic portion of this series, especially when it comes to whether or not Iris West is going to start to realize that there may be something more there between her and Barry than she first thought. Take a look at the synopsis below:
“Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) decides that she and Barry (Grant Gustin) need to move on from Ronnie (guest star Robbie Amell) and Iris (Candice Patton) and find new loves so she takes him for a night out at the local karaoke bar. Caitlin doesn’t have any luck making a love connection but Barry meets Linda Park (guest star Malese Jow), a sports reporter for the Central City Picture News, and asks her out on a date. When Barry tells Iris he has a date, Iris is surprised by her reaction. Meanwhile, Cisco (Carlos Ramon) considers Hartley’s (guest star Andy Mientus) dangerous offer and the team searches for Shawna (guest star Britne Oldford), a meta-human with teleportation powers, who just busted her boyfriend Clay (guest star Micah Parker) out of Iron Heights. When Henry (guest star John Wesley Shipp) snoops around in an attempt to help Joe (Jesse L. Martin) and Barry solve the crime, he ends up in the infirmary after getting roughed up by inmates.”
Basically, this episode feels like the perfect combination of something ridiculously fun, but also something that will have plenty of action especially when you remember that you have meta-humans and the Pied Piper running around.
