She would eventually go on to marry The Flash (Wally West) and give birth to twins Iris and Jai. Linda Jasmine Park was created by William Messner -Loebs and Greg LaRocque.

Sharp eyed Arrow fans might remember a reporter named Linda Park appearing in the episode “Three Ghosts” she was played by Olivia Cheng. Cheng, as Linda Park was reporting on the Particle Accelerator when it exploded. How will they explain this? Maybe Linda Park (Jow) will be the daughter or perhaps the niece of Linda Park (Cheng), guess we’ll have to wait and see.
CW President Mark Pedowitz had this to say about The Flash.
“Over the past three seasons, we have made it our mission to grow and broaden out our audience, and to keep raising the bar with the quality and impact of our new shows, and The Flash and Jane have both exceeded our expectations on all counts. I’m thrilled to announce full season orders for both of these terrific new series.”
