Reply Subj: Speculation about Henry Allen on the series
Posted: Thu Apr 02, 2015 at 09:46:29 pm BST (Viewed 391 times)

    So far having John Wesley Shipp on the show has been a nice treat for fans of the 90's series and his character has been of some use aside from being an Easter Egg.

    For Season 2, I suspect Wells will have been outed as Reverse Flash and be out of Star Labs. Henry Allen will be cleared and released from jail.

    Henry Allen was a Doctor prior to what happened, and he was in awe of the equipment at Star Labs in the latest episode and mentioned how he wished he had that stuff when he was a Doctor.

It's interesting your speculating about this when I had the same thought in my reply below in this thread:

    Perhaps Henry will take the place of Wells as the scientist/mentor for Barry? Granted he is a few years behind in terms of technology but he should be able to catch up. Also Barry I'm sure would love to have his Dad on the team.

And it would make perfect sense too. Dr. Wells will be gone and need to be replaced. Who better than dear old Dad? \:\)

    Also even if he is cleared and released and the courts, police and city all apologize to Henry, etc. there will be some that will still see the stigma on his name, so working at Star Labs may be the best choice for him.

Indeed. But I think working with his son would be a true honor so I think he'd be ok with that.

    On a slightly funny note, Henry could get a small dose of speed force and then suit up in a version of the Golden Age Flash suit.

Maybe the writers will do that before taking his powers away in the same episode. ;\)

It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
