Not that the men of the hit TV series The Flash have much better love lives, it’s just that Dr. Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker) seems to have the worst luck of anyone in Central City. Let’s recap, shall we? Her first boyfriend, Ronnie Raymond, is thought vaporized in the same accident that gives Barry Allen his speed powers. Bummer, right? Then he turns up alive, and as one half of the Firestorm matrix….only to seemingly die all over again on his and Caitlin’s wedding day. And that was all in just the first season of The Flash.
Then in season two of the show, Caitlin tried to heal her broken heart and get back into the dating world, and fell for a hunky dude from a parallel Earth named Jay Garrick (Teddy Sears). He’s a Flash too. What could go wrong? Well, it turns out that Caitlin Snow has the same luck when it comes to dating hot dudes as a certain Buffy Summers did back in the day, when the CW was still called the WB. SPOILERS for season two, but it turned out that Jay Garrick wasn’t really Jay Garrick at all, but a serial killer named Hunter Zolomon who went by the name Zoom.
Let’s all hope that Caitlin’s dating prospects improve greatly in the third season, because it hardly seems that they could get much worse. In the meantime, Warner Brothers have revealed a deleted scene from the second season of The Flash, via Entertainment Weekly, which is due to hit home video this week. In it, you can see Caitlin’s first cute and awkward date with
Zoom Jay Garrick, back when she was still blissfully ignorant of his true self, and still had hope that love springs eternal. You can relive happier times and watch the deleted scene down below.
The second season of The Flash hits DVD and Blu-ray on September 6th, and the third season of the show returns to the CW on Tuesday, Oct. 4 at 8 p.m. ET.
Were you bummed when Jay Garrick turned out to be all evil-like, and broke our poor Caitlin’s heart? Who do you want to see Dr. Snow date next year? Give us your thoughts in the comments below.
