Do Ryan and Sophie get together on 'Batwoman'? Javicia Leslie talks Ryan's love life.

In "Armageddon Part 4," Eobard Thawne manipulates events in which he becomes The Flash instead of Barry Allen (Grant Gustin). The show jumps forward 10 years into the future which sees a married Sophie and Ryan attending Iris West and Eobard's engagement party.

Additionally, Ryan opens up to her bestie Iris and reveals that she and Sophie are planning to adopt a child together. OMG!

The altered timeline seems to be a foreshadowing of a possible showmance between Ryan and Sophie.

It's very clear that Sophie has a type and that type is Batwoman. Kate Kane (Ruby Rose) and Sophie dated in Season 1, even though Sophie ended up marrying a man, from whom she is now separated.

Now that Sophie is back on the market, fans are hoping that there is a very real romance budding between her and Ryan. While Javicia couldn't confirm this fan theory, the Batwoman actress suggested that it's about time Ryan gets a romantic interest. "Finally, the girl gets a date. Right? [Laughs]," she joked.

"It's been a long time, and she hasn't had one. So, yeah. I look forward to her exploring love. I mean, she got to explore love with Angelina, but I look forward to her doing it a lot more and like getting to experience being loved, especially on screen," Javicia told Distractify.
