It appears that Barry Allen and Oliver Queen will be able to compare notes on something other than just super-villains. They’ll now be able to discuss the women in their lives as well. That’s right, Barry is about to get a new love interest in his life.
The CW is casting the recurring role of a character named Wendy, a “spunky, fun and funny” romantic interest for Barry Allen. The character of Wendy will also be a cop on the Central City PD and like Barry, she will be bright and scientific minded. She will basically be the Felicity Smoak of The Flash.
But what about Iris West you say? At the close of Season 1, Iris not only discovered Barry’s secret but the only hurdle keeping Barry and Iris apart was eliminated when Detective Eddie Thawne sacrificed his life to erase Harrison Wells/ Eobard Thawne from existence. And what about the article from the future reporting the Flash’s disappearance that was written by “Iris West-Allen”? Surely these two facts are enough to tell us that Barry and Iris will end up together. Or does it? With all of Barry’s time tinkering, who can say for sure what lies ahead for any of the characters. If we’ve learned anything in Season 1 of The Flash, it’s that nothing is written in stone.
Season 2 of The Flash will again airing Tuesdays at 8/7c; The character of Wendy will be introduced in Episode 2.
What do you think about Barry’s new love interest?
