Is Barry Allen ready for love? The Flash returns this week with the all-new episode Crazy for You, and it will serve as an introduction to popular DC Comics character Linda Park, who will be portrayed by actress Malese Jow. The CW has released a clip from the show, which offers our first look at Linda, who went onto become the wife of the third Flash, Wally West, in the original comic books. Here, she will be Barry's love interest in a multi-episode arc.
In Crazy for You, Caitlin decides that she and Barry need to move on from Ronnie (guest star Robbie Amell) and Iris and find new loves so she takes him for a night out at the local karaoke bar. Caitlin doesn't have any luck making a love connection but Barry meets Linda Park (guest star Malese Jow), a sports reporter for the Central City Picture News, and asks her out on a date. When Barry tells Iris he has a date, Iris is surprised by her own reaction.
Meanwhile, Cisco considers Hartley's (guest star Andy Mientus) dangerous offer and the team searches for Shawna (guest star Britne Oldford), a meta-human with teleportation powers, who just busted her boyfriend Clay (guest star Micah Parker) out of Iron Heights. When Henry (guest star John Wesley Shipps) snoops around in an attempt to help Joe and Barry solve the crime, he ends up in the infirmary after getting roughed up by inmates. Take a look at this latest episode of The Flash, and meet Linda Park before she is fully introduced on February 3, in an episode directed by Rob Hardy and written by Aaron Helbing & Todd Helbing. The Flash airs Tuesdays at 8 P.M. EST.
