‘The Flash’ episode 12 preview: Is romance in the air for Barry Allen?

The Flash -Sooner or later, Barry Allen was going to get the hint that Iris West doesn’t seem to be into him. With that in mind, at least one part of next week’s new episode of “The Flash” is going to focus on Grant Gustin’s character trying to find some love in his life elsewhere. It’s only appropriate given that the title here is “Crazy for You,” and it is going to air close to Valentine’s Day.

Of course, romance could also be a tool for evil when it comes to one of the meta-humans within this episode … which only seems to be one of many different problems that face our heroes in this episode. Henry Allen is going to have his largest story to date, which Hartley is going to attempt to work what is a little bit of his form of magic. 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.”

This episode sounds fun, but also intense for a few different reasons. We wonder, for example, if we could ever see Henry out of prison, and what that would mean for the fabric of the show. Would there suddenly be too many characters running around? It could ultimately be a good problem to have, but one that would still need to be overcome.
