We’ve already known that DC Comics’ Flash, Barry Allen, would be speeding into Starling City starting with the 8th and 9th episodes of Arrow Season 2. Now, thanks to a report on TV Line, we know what brings him into town:
I’ve got fresh intel on exactly what brings Central City PD CSI Barry Allen to Oliver’s orbit. The would-be speedster travels (not by foot, I assume) to Starling City while investigating a series of brutal slayings that he believes may have a connection to his mother’s years-ago murder — a crime for which his father has been unjustly imprisoned.
Interestingly, the death of Barry Allen’s mother is a very important plot point in the recently-released Justice League: the Flashpoint Paradox animated film, which, if you haven’t seen it, is definitely worth checking out.
