What Your Favorite 'The Flash' Character Says About You, From Barry Allen To Harrison Wells
As far as maintaining a successful freshman series goes, The Flash has more than proven to be a cut above the rest. Full of compelling plot twists and action sequences that leave you on the edge of your seat, it's clear that this series is no "flash" in the pan. It's going to be with us for the long haul. And while we have yet to reach Season 1's epic conclusion, if Episode 15 is any indicator, we're in for one very riveting hour of entertainment. But mind-blowing storylines aside, this show wouldn't be nearly as great as it is without The Flash 's incredible cast of characters who have completely won over our hearts.
Seriously, these guys are THE BEST. I mean, we knew Grant Gustin was going to charm the heck out of us as Barry Allen, but now that we've gotten to know everyone, the entire ensemble deserves praise right across the board. And yes, I'm even lumping Harrison Wells into that category. (A superhero series is nothing without its super villains, people!) But just like with any show, every viewer has a favorite. The question is, who is yours? And more importantly, what does that say about you? Well, I'm so glad you asked…
You never ran with the cool crowd in high school, but that hasn't prevented you from blossoming into a truly stellar and uber successful human being. You're incredibly smart, even though you'd never admit so out loud, and strive to make a real difference in the world. No one can stay mad at you for very long because you're just so darn likable. Be careful, though — your friendly nature can sometimes make you naive and place your trust in the wrong people.
Coffee is one of your four major food groups and you'd choose reading a book over watching a movie any day of the week. You're extremely passionate about everything you do, though your creativity and imaginative mind sometimes make it hard for you to see the things that are right in front of you. You love your job and always bring 110 percent work ethic to the table. But no matter how busy you are, you still always find time to call your parents everyday. Even if it's only for five minutes.
No one loves a good joke more than you. You're considered the goofball of your friend group and always seem to maintain a positive outlook on life. You love watching old black and white movies and have been known to binge watch your fair share of Netflix shows. (You've convinced yourself that Heroes is based on a true story.) But don't let that genuine good nature be misleading. You are no pushover and can be extremely protective of those you love.
You're a hopeless romantic and have seen The Notebook at least 100 times (this year). Ironically, though, you have a tendency to keep most of your feelings to yourself. You fear rejection and lack in self confidence, but that's only because you've experienced great loss in the past and have trouble opening up. But once you do, your laughter and smile are completely contagious. So don't be afraid to let that hair down because you rock!
Secrets are your bread and butter, which explains your rather unhealthy obsession with Pretty Little Liars. (In fact, you're partly convinced that you might even be A.) You don't allow anyone to get too close and prefer being alone than out with a group of friends. Some people would call you antisocial, not that you really care though. You march to the beat of your own drum, which makes you rather hard to predict. But, at the same time, it's also what makes you so alluring.
You're a stand-up person and wear your emotions on your sleeve. Basically, what you see is what you get. But who am I kidding? Eddie is nice and all, but he's no one's favorite. (Sorry, dude.)
You are loyal to a fault and extremely family oriented. You are the glue that holds your social circle together and are known to be the constant source of reason. You're great in a crisis, though your protective instincts can also make you very stubborn. But it's all part of what makes you so lovable.
Sure you can be a little hot-headed at times (get it?), but your undeniable good looks and charisma more than make up for it. You're an avid exerciser and it shows. (Boy-oh-boy, does it show.) You also love to travel and prefer to never stay in one place for too long. But when you do manage to stick around, it sure is a memorable experience.
