“Iris isn’t dumb or icky, but with Eddie now privvy to Barry’s secret, she’s the only person in the considerably sized cast who has no idea of the truth. Every man in her life is working in tandem to keep a fairly important secret from her – and one that, at this point, she has a definite right to know. The condescending paternalism of every man in the cast just shot through the roof, making them all look like assholes and making her look kind of wifty and out of it for being so easy to fool. This is something that needs to be rectified pronto. We realize the writers probably want to draw out the secret identity thing for a while longer because it creates classic sexual tension, but they’ve written themselves into a corner now. This is the one major mistake in the writing and it really needs to be fixed soon because it’s ruining characters the longer it goes on. Girlfriend needs to tell all these men in her lives to go to hell and go find herself a nice boy who gets her motor running and doesn’t think lying is an acceptable form of communication. At this point, we’d cheer her on if she decided to become a supervillain. Put her in spandex and have her lower all those lying men in her life into a vat of acid or something. She’d be justified.”
