12 Westallen gifs to give us all the feels

Light up the holidays with lightning rods and the golden standard.

Okay, it might have taken me way too long to narrow this down to 12 gifs, but can you blame me? Westallen is the real deal. The classic comic book couple has developed into one of the most wholesome, healthy pairings on television. Barry and Iris constantly prove their love for and understanding of each other through their actions, words and choices. The “gold standard” label isn’t just talk.

I think shows can take some creative liberties, especially when the source material is comics where there are many varying storylines. For about five minutes in the premiere, I thought The Flash might end up going a different route with Barry’s relationships. However, the moment Barry mentioned his long-time, since-childhood crush on Iris, I knew. It had to be canon.

As cherry on top, Grant Gustin and Candice Patton both have outstanding acting range, and great chemistry. They can make Barry and Iris romantic, funny, serious, and everything in between.

When you see these gifs, think not just of the content but the whole scene they were in, what it meant for Westallen and the emotion it carried.
