Jordan Fisher Discusses What To Expect From Bart Allen On The Flash

With the end of "The Flash" Season 7 comes another new Scarlet Speedster: Bart Allen, played by "To All the Boys: PS I Still Love You" star Jordan Fisher. This version of Bart (AKA Impulse) is a little different from his comics counterpart, because in the DC Comics, the young hero is The Flash's grandson, but in The CW series, he's the son of Barry Allen (Grant Gustin). This means he already fits in nicely within the future timeline of the show, because audiences have already met Nora (Jessica Parker Kennedy), who goes by the name of XS.

For most kids, traveling back in time to partner up with their father at the peak of his superhero career would be too daunting. However, Bart seems to be a little too excited by the prospect of it all when he arrives at S.T.A.R. Labs at the end of Season 7, Episode 16, "P.O.W." — Barry, not so much. Sure, he was happy to see Nora again, but he looked a little worried by Bart's appearance. To be fair, he does have a lot on his mind at the moment, including dealing with all the Godspeed clones hurtling around Central City and meeting his son for the first time.

Thankfully, Jordan Fisher has opened up about what to expect from Bart Allen when he gets more of the spotlight in the penultimate episode of Season 7, "Heart of the Matter, Part 1."

Bart has lots of fun

When speaking to TVLine ahead of his superhero debut, Jordan Fisher revealed how Bart Allen shakes things up for Team Flash, as well as explaining what makes him different from Barry, Nora, and all the other speedsters we've seen so far. The star pointed out that "he has the most style of all the speedsters, he's got the most flair, he's got the moves." Fisher also added, "He's the only one who is parkouring off of stuff... It's all fun for Bart." It sounds like the young hero has a completely different outlook on having superpowers, unlike his Dad, Barry, who is well aware of the weight they carry.

The time travel element in "The Flash" does provide some unique character dynamics. The audience has yet to see Barry and Iris West-Allen (Candice Patton) settle down with kids, so it's fascinating to learn what their family life will look like in the future. According to Jordan Fisher, Bart Allen is "a momma's boy. At the end of the day, that's what he is." The actor also explained that Bart is the "annoying little brother" to Nora, but that they're "siblings first before they are superheroes."

Although there's a lot going on in Central City in the lead-up to the Season 7 finale, Fisher explained that as a group, they "get to really mess around with what this dynamic is like as a family." But it sounds like there's secrets being kept from the present day Team Flash, as the star pointed out that "anybody that comes from the future is going to have information that we do not," while also noting that it's "very important that those people keep what needs to be a secret a secret, so as to not affect the timeline." There's still plenty of excitement on the way for "Flash" fans.
