The Flash TV Show: What We Know So Far About Arrow's Spin-off
Detective West (Jesse L. Martin)As we learned in his featured episodes of Arrow, Barry Allen is perpetually on the hunt for clues about who was responsible for his mother’s murder so that he can free his wrongfully accused father, but don’t take that to mean that our hero is totally without parental guidance. Taking on that role in Barry’s life is Detective West, an honest, blue-collar cop played by Law & Order’s Jesse L. Martin, who basically becomes Barry’s surrogate father. Given his role with the police, we can expect Detective West to be a part of Barry’s life both personally and professionally, likely eventually getting caught up in Flash’s vigilante work much like Paul Blackthorne's Quentin Lance does on Arrow.
