Barry Allen and Iris West.
Barry has had a crush on Iris ever since he was a young boy. Then, after the death of his mother and the imprisonment of his father, Barry was adopted by Detective Joe West. Barry grew up as Joe's son, but that never dampened the feelings he had for his adopted father's daughter Iris. Iris, however, has always claimed to feel a brotherly love towards Barry.
New photos released from the set of The Flash tease something that fans have been awaiting for a very long time: a kiss between Allen and West (that's Iris West, not Joe!).
Yes! You're looking at Barry and Iris getting very close and personal!
For those who don't remember the mid season finale of The Flash (although I don't know how you could forget) Barry confessed his true feelings to Iris. Iris did not openly reciprocate those feelings and chose to move in with her boyfriend Detective Eddie Thawne. However, when I watched the episode, I couldn't help but feel that Iris felt something more for Barry.
There it is! The kiss! The long awaited moment for many, many fans!
Of course, we don't know the context in which this kiss happens but there is no denying that it is of a romantic nature. I can't wait to see what brings on this sudden passion! Perhaps Iris has been hiding feelings for Barry? Perhaps she finds out that he is The Flash? Also, how will Eddie react? Will this be the igniting flame which pushes him ever closer to villainy?
It looks as though this kiss is set to appear in the upcoming episode of The Flash titled "Return of the Rogues." This episode will air on The CW on January 20th 2015, and is written by Kai Yu Wu and esteemed comic book writer and Chief Creative Officer at DC Comics Geoff Johns.
So, are you excited for the return of The Flash? Have you been awaiting this kiss, and if not, who would you have preferred to see Barry kiss? Let me know your thoughts down below.
