I am always down for angst and I would have even
been okay dealt with a break up but what I am NOT here for is Barry using the ONE thing that Iris is feeling vulnerable about as a way to break her heart so that she would let him walk away.
It was cowardly and that’s not Barry. I thought Iris was exaggerating a little bit when she said their engagement was tainted last week but the writers made sure to make that prophecy a reality because it’s ALL the way tainted now.
I know that they’ll be fine, and probably next week at that because these two have never been good at staying apart, but it’s still stupid that the writers decided to go this route with their breakup. Barry purposefully hurting Iris and making her doubt his love for her just doesn’t make sense in any context. Even with the audience knowing the truth about how devastated he was at the thought of her not wanting to marry him I still can’t reconcile the fact that Barry would do that to Iris.
All I know is that their makeup scene had better be out of this world amazing. And when (not if) Barry Allen proposes again he had better put Hallmark out of business. Barry better do anything and everything to make sure that Iris NEVER has any reason to doubt his love or anything he does for her ever again. That’s very least he could do.
