Linda Park is an investigative journalist and the wife of Wally West.

An instant before the Flashpoint altered reality, Linda’s children Jai and Irey West were sucked into the Dark Multiverse by a tide of dark matter. Wally attempted to save them but was too late. Doctor Manhattan removed ten years from history, which included all of Linda’s relationship with Wally and Jai and Irey’s birth. Linda’s memories of her family were erased while Wally was trapped in the Speed Force.[1]

When Wally was able to briefly escape the Speed Force he tried to get Linda, his “lightning rod” to remember him so he could permanently escape but she couldn’t and he was pulled back in.[2]

Wally was eventually able to leave the Speed Force for good with the help of his mentor and uncle Barry Allen. He reunited with his old friends in the Titans, where he found he was able to restore their memories of him with a touch, but that Linda was mysteriously immune.[3][4]

Flash Forward

Linda came to visit Wally in Blackgate Penitentiary where he was awaiting trial for the Sanctuary massacre. Wally had fired his lawyer and planned to plead guilty but Linda urged him not to.[5]

After Wally sacrificed himself to ride the Mobius Chair and save the Multiverse, Tempus Fuginaut upheld the promise made to him by returning Jai and Iris back to Earth. Doing so reignited Linda's memories of Wally and the twins and she tearfully reunited with the children as they returned to Earth.[6]

Death Metal

Linda, Jai and Irey took refuge in the Speed Force alongside the rest of the Flash Family when The Batman Who Laughs remade the world in his image. They briefly reunited with Wally when he took the Mobius Chair into the Speed Force to keep it out of The Batman Who Laughs’ clutches.[7]

Infinite Frontier

After the events of Dark Nights: Death Metal, the Park-West family tried to settle down and return to normality. Wally decided to resign as the Flash and after discussing it with Linda, decided to cut himself off from the Speed Force.[8]
