WestAllen – Even with all the changes in Flashpoint, it looks like one thing won’t change: That is Barry and Iris’ love and connection to each other. More than that, it’s safe to say that the Barry and Iris relationship, known collectively to fans as WestAllen, will finally become a reality. It’s been two seasons and the show has established that these two are connected in every way possible, and also on every earth and timeline. So now it’s time to see the romantic relationship happen. In Flashpoint, Iris won’t know Barry that well, nor will they share history, but we can expect them to be drawn to one another. Post-Flashpoint, Barry will hopefully meet her back on that porch.
Their relationship is integral to the show and has been gaining steam since the pilot. The second half of season two built the relationship back up and finally got the long-time best friends on the same page romantically. Finally getting the timing right, Barry decided to go back and save his mother and pretty much erased everything. With all the fantastic teasers and information we’ve been getting from the actors and executive producers, I’m optimistic that we’ll be seeing this relationship play out. As it should. It’s 2016, and it’s time.
