'The Flash' Season 7: Will Ralph Dibny and Sue Dearbon get married like in the comics?
Spoilers for 'The Flash' Season 6 Episode 19 'Success is Assured'
Sue Dearbon (Natalie Dreyfuss) finally made an appearance in 'The Flash'. After being named-dropped several times, the famous DC character was introduced in 'A Girl Named Sue' where she is on a mission to take down Black Hole.
The Arrowverse version of Sue Dearbon is a lot different than the one we imagined. It was supposed to be the moment where Ralph Dibny (Hartley Sawyer) would meet the woman he loves and the duo would go on to become a super couple just like they did in the comics. This episode, in particular, sees Sue join Carver (Eric Nenninger) only to be convinced by Ralph to not join forces. The advice seemed to have worked as she later lends a hand to Team Flash in taking down Doctor Light, Ultraviolet and Sunshine.
At this point, it is hard to ignore the blossoming romance between Ralph and Sue. Their first encounter saw the former look at Sue like he was enchanted and what followed were some crisp and flirty one-liners. Sparks did fly and fans have been eager to see the duo start a relationship. In the comics, the duo gets married and looking at how things are shaping up, it looks like we may see Ralph marrying Sue in Season 7 after all. In all probability, it could be one of those light episodes that focus purely on the two.
For Dibny, this is a move in the right direction when it comes to introducing Sue. It also makes sense to put him in a place where he comes fully prepared to actually open up to a person. It wasn't exactly a smooth ride for Ralph since he was introduced in Season 4 as a piping hot mess.
This theory is supplemented by the actor's interview with EW where he said: “Since I started playing Ralph, the number one question has probably always been, ‘Where’s Sue? What about Sue?’ We did talk early on in season 4 because I brought that up, and the plan had always been all roads lead to Sue and we’re going to get there, but he has to be ready for that because that’s such a serious relationship in comics and a big relationship,” says Sawyer. “I can’t see the guy he was in season 4 meeting Sue Dearborn and that becoming what you know it needs to become.”
And now, Sue's finally here. The Arrowverse version can also see her go on to become a pivotal member for Team Flash and this should be a piece of news that would please 'The Flash' fans.
