Arrow Sneak Peek: Barry Allen Geeks Out Over the Vigilante -- and Guesses Felicity's Secret!

Barry Allen, aka The Flash, has some theories about Arrow‘s bow-wielding hero, and they’re pretty on target. In fact, they may even be too close for comfort for Oliver, Felicity & Co.

In the following scene from this Wednesday’s episode (The CW, 8/7c), Barry shares with the IT gal his spot-on explanation for the vigilante’s green attire — and comes dangerously close to figuring out her secret double life, as well.

    Smart and cute.

    • wordsmith says:

      Adorable and very, very young to be a CSI.

      • i actually could understand why they picked someone that young based on his background/history. He seems like someone who is very ambitious and the reason why he does what he does is because of the death of his mother.

      • Sheldon W. says:

        Considering how smart he is, Barry could have gotten a couple of university degrees under his belt by the time he hit his twenties. It seems like every few months there’s a news story about some 12-13-14-year old who’s made it university, and Barry just seems like he’d be one of them.

        If he specialized in forensics, he could easily have been in a CSI unit by his twenty-first birthday – even if only as a very junior member of the team until his drive and skill could facilitate rapid advancement.

        That would also go a long way toward explaining his social awkwardness, since going to university so young would have made it difficult to socialize properly with kids his own age and he’d likely always be a step behind in that part of his development.

        • wordsmith says:

          I’m not saying that he’s TOO young, just young enough that they’d better take the time to properly explain how he got where he is. Your explanation would certainly suffice.

      • Alan says:

        im pretty sure they have said he is still a trainee or something like that. anyway he is supposed to be crazy smart so is it that far fetched that he could have graduated a year or 2 early? its not like that scenario is unheard of in fiction.

  2. Hodan says:

    LOL! I didn’t think I will see a day where Felicity is less awkward than a soon to be super hero. Can’t wait!

  3. DarkDefender says:

    This is going to be great.

  4. Jared says:

    Love Barry Allen already!

  5. Mikaylah says:

    I can’t wait to see Barry interact with all the Arrow characters. He and Felicity are great, and I’m especially eager to see Oliver’s reaction to that. ;)

  6. Jerry says:

    I keep getting a “Gabriel Mann in Revenge” vibe from Barry Allen in this clip, particularly at the start.

  7. CBWBDK1 says:

    I actually like him. I was not expecting that.

  8. MetroL says:

    I wish he was staying on the show, he would have been a good addition. Sometimes I just hate spin offs, all they do is dilute the cast of very good characters and splitt them into different shows. Sometimes the spin off isnt as good and becomes a waste or the parental show becomes weak because of losing good and interesting characters to the spin off.

  9. Alan says:

    yep thats pretty much what i imagined for a pre powers barry, so far so good. i take it the murder of his mother will be the driving factor of the series then, im going to assume eobard thawne has something to do with it.

  10. Deedee says:

    So very excited!! Yet people keep commenting on how young he is but he’s 10 years older than Emily Bett. I’m very much Team Olicity, but I think this will be a great relationship in whatever form for Felicity. He’s smart and rambly-a perfect match. This show has been great this season and I’m really looking forward to how they introduce superpowers. The writers and show runners have consistently delivered, so I’m sure it’s going to be fantastic.

  11. liz says:

    this kid is too young!! Like what the heck. How is he a ‘colleague’ of Oliver’s. He’s like Thea’s age. Its ridiculous.

  12. Judian says:

    Well Barry did what I thought was impossible and that was to get Oliver to notice Felicity.
