Remember when The Flash crossed over with Supergirl, and it was just bloody BRILLIANT? Well, more than a fair few fans have been shipping them, especially in light of Supergirl‘s move from CBS to The CW.

Barry and Kara would certainly make an adorable couple (much more so than Barry and Iris, urrrgggh). Grant Gustin a.k.a. Barry Allen thinks it’s a good idea too, as he told Entertainment Weekly some time back:

“We tease it a little bit. He’s in town for a day so there’s not really time for anything to actually develop, but there’s undeniable chemistry, and they have a lot of things in common that they’ll never have in common with anybody else, obviously. This is the first person with powers Barry [has met] who’s using them for good. It happens to be somebody that he is attracted to, so it’s cool.”

Check what Gustin told DC All Access just last month too:

Unfortunately, Melissa Benoist doesn’t agree, placing Barry firmly in the friend zone. Here’s what she told DC All Access:

“I don’t know that they’d ever get together. I think they’re too similar… I think they’re pals, pigging out on ice cream.”

Personally, I think Barry and Kara would make a great match. But even though Kara has finally landed Jimmy, what Barry did at the end of season 2 (sorry, Iris) definitely leaves their potential to become a couple wide open. And since we can expect more crossovers between The Flash, Supergirl, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow, Barry and Kara will certainly be crossing paths again.

So. Fingers crossed!
