THE FLASH's Grant Gustin And Candice Patton Tackle BTS Questions

THE FLASH's Grant Gustin And Candice Patton Tackle BTS Questions

They'll be playing Barry Allen and Iris West this Fall on The CW's Flash and in the videos after the jump, Gustin and Patton answer all-important questions, like "Can The Flash run just as fast backwards?"

  Also, series scriptwriter Jaime Pagila has shared episode six credits via Twitter. The episode is titled "The Flash is Born", which could mean that it will take six episodes for the character to start going by the moniker, "The Flash". This should please those fans still upset by the fact that Stephen Amell's Oliver Queen goes by Arrow and not Green Arrow.    
After a particle accelerator causes a freak storm, CSI Investigator Barry Allen is struck by lightning and falls into a coma. Months later he awakens with the power of super speed, granting him the ability to move through Central City like an unseen guardian angel. Though initially excited by his newfound powers, Barry is shocked to discover he is not the only “meta-human” who was created in the wake of the accelerator explosion – and not everyone is using their new powers for good. Barry partners with S.T.A.R. Labs and dedicates his life to protect the innocent. For now, only a few close friends and associates know that Barry is literally the fastest man alive, but it won’t be long before the world learns what Barry Allen has become...The Flash

Better make a strong impact before the movie comes and shits on it

That's not Iris, that's Black Laurel. There's literally no deference between the two character's they are both that smug, bitchy, annoying love interest who like's to [frick] with the main character and that's a shame really because everything in the pilot was so good.

I don't care that iris is black and she is hot but I don't like her character at all thought she was the weakest part of the pilot.

Really liked their chemistry.
Just not digging the generic "I'm in love with my best friend" thing.

But yeah, Iris is literally Laurel.

Candice Patton would definitely get it.

That is one nice looking young lady.

This show better be good.

It's like they put a tint on Katie Cassidy
McGee - 8/29/2014, 7:24 AM
I wonder if the show will address the fact that the Black Flash clearly competed in the Boston Marathon.

Loved the pilot, can't wait for this!
McGee - 8/29/2014, 7:29 AM
TheDude...I thought your comment was stupid...until I looked at her static image for her video! Hahaha!

I sure hope Barry f*cks Iris at some point on the show.

Those two were meant to f*ck.

I would just like to say that Tom Cavanagh is amazing. He's Ed in real life. Can't wait for this show.

To hell with the Candice haters... I'd love to get me some of that.

There's not enough lubricant in the world for that to happen.

Can the flash run backwards as fast as forwards? Take a look:

soforizo - you can hate her character and know that, that is not Iris West at all and still think shes hot. Id hit it. But she'll never be Iris West

Iris and Laurel are not the same. Iris is a lot sunnier and more optimistic and less bitchy. Plus Grant and Candace actually have a (small) degree of chemistry with each other, unlike Stephen and Katie who have zero chemistry.

I don't like the "in love with best friend" angle either, though. Lame as hell.

Could be an episode about the name "the Flash" finally sticking...

... Or it could be the first time-travel episode, where Barry accidentally goes back in time and witnesses his own birth.

Either way, should be fun to see!

Did they remove the pilot episode from the internet? I've been trying to find it for the last two months so I can watch it but haven't been able to find it.
