About the Show
Barry Allen was just 11 years old when his mother was killed in a bizarre and terrifying incident and his father was falsely convicted of the murder. With his life changed forever by the tragedy, Barry was taken in and raised by Detective Joe West, the father of Barry’s best friend, Iris. Now, Barry has become a brilliant, driven and endearingly geeky CSI investigator, whose determination to uncover the truth about his mother’s strange death leads him to follow up on every unexplained urban legend and scientific advancement that comes along.
Barry’s latest obsession is a cutting edge particle accelerator, created by visionary physicist Harrison Wells and his S.T.A.R. Labs team. However, something goes horribly wrong during the public unveiling; and when the devastating explosion causes a freak storm, many lives are lost and Barry is struck by lightning. After nine months in a coma, Barry awakens to find his life has changed once again—the accident has given him the power of super speed, granting him the ability to move through Central City like an unseen guardian angel.
Barry has always had the heart of a hero and now he has the legs to match, but he quickly learns that being a superhero is not as easy as it seems—and he can’t do it alone. While Barry struggles to understand his new abilities, the people around him also have to adjust to a new reality. Barry has found another kind of surrogate family in the team at Harrison Wells’ S.T.A.R. Labs. Wells’ ultimate agenda remains somewhat mysterious, but Barry is excited by the grander worldview that has been opened for him and the friendship he’s building with S.T.A.R. lab team members Caitlin Snow and Cisco Ramon. Barry now has a renewed purpose—using his gift of speed to protect the innocent, while never giving up on his quest to solve his mother’s murder and clear his father’s name.Full Episode List
