Iris West is Barry Allen's best friend and the daughter of Detective West of the Central City Police Department.

She is currently unaware that Barry is The Flash, but has taken an interest in the superhero blogging about him frequently. This has already made her a target of metahumans looking to take down The Flash. However, she refuses to stop spreading the word about Central City's guardian angel.

 

Iris West Quotes

Barry: I love you, Iris.
Iris: Oh. I love you, too.
Barry: When we were kids I loved you before I even know what the word love meant and then my mom died and I had to go live with the girl I had a crush on. Look. There were so many times I wanted to tell you; Jr. Prom, when I went away to college, when I came back from college, nights that we stayed up talking, all the birthdays, all the Christmases, but I, I never did. I kept it in. After I lost my mom and my dad, I was afraid that if you didn't feel the same way, I would lose you, too. That's the irony. I was so scared of losing you that I did. I know I've had our whole lives to tell you this and you're with Eddie now and I know that and I know my timing couldn't be any worse, but I just... I couldn't lie to you anymore. I'm sorry.

The Flash: I gotta run.
Iris: I bet you say that to all the girls.
The Flash: What other girls?

The Flash Quotes

One mystery I cannot figure out is why some people come into our lives and why some people go. Others become a part of you. Some friendships feel like they'll last forever and others end far too soon. Not every friendship is meant to last forever. What does last forever is the pain when that person is gone.

Barry

You can do this, Barry. You were right. I am responsible for all of this. So many people
were hurt and when I looked at you all I saw was another potential victim of my hubris, but you, Barry, you can stop it. You can do this. Now RUN BARRY, RUN!
