On The Flash episode “The Darkness and the Light”, Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) comes face-to-face with a new breacher, Dr. Light. Jay Garrick (Teddy Sears) tells Barry that Dr. Light can be reasoned with but during a fight with The Flash, Dr. Light blinds him. If Dr. Light looks familiar it’s because she is. She’s the Earth 2 version of Linda Park, Barry’s ex-girlfriend who dumped him when she realized his feelings for her Central City Picture News co-worker Iris (Candice Patton).
Linda Park is portrayed by Malese Jow. She’s best known for her roles on the teen series Unfabulous (Genna Fabiano) with Emma Roberts, and The Vampire Diaries (Anna Zhu). Jow is currently working on a new series Filthy Preppy Teen$ which is a parody of teen TV shows. The Flash airs Tuesdays at 8pm on CW.
