According to TVLine, it seems Barry Allen will be getting a new love interest during season 2 of The Flash. The love interest for Barry will be familiar, yet new.
The Flash is casting for a female to play Wendy, a “spunky, fun and funny” romantic interest for one Barry Allen. A cop for the Central City PD, Wendy is described as bright and scientific-minded — more specifically, “Think ‘Felicity Smoak’ from Arrow,” the casting call reads.
Considering the chemistry between Felicity and Barry, this will be a good holdover love interest for Barry until he finally hooks up with Iris. We all know it will happen, just don’t need to rush that part of the story.
What are your thoughts on Barry getting a new love interest? Is it really necessary?
