1) Diff anon, I don't agree that Iris hasn't had a proper story line in 2 1/2 seasons. She started off as a Barista, became a blogger, named The Flash and introduced him to the city, became a Journalist, lost her fiance, she has been incredibly resilient through finding out her mother was alive getting introduced to her secret brother and looking out for his well-being (drag racing etc), finding out her BFF has feelings for her, taking time to grieve her loss and opening her heart up to love.
Do I think they need to do more for Iris’ character? Yes! They need to find a way to consistently incorporate her journalism into the storyline. Show her at work and tie it into the main plot line. I’m hoping that comes in the second half of the season but we shall see. However, I wouldn’t trade Iris for anything. She’s amazing! Much love & respect to you :)
Hi! First of all, thank you for sharing your opinion without being rude like that other person.
Yes, Iris had her moments of course - especially in season 1 -but at the end of the day, 80% of her storyline revolved around a man, you feel me?
They could do so much more with her character because, as you said, she is really amazing and deserves better. Even Candice seems to be kinda unsatisfied with her arc :/
I’m a Westallen shipper, but I’m tired to see Iris living in Barry’s shadow. When Iris said “My contributions here are limited. I don’t know science. I don’t have powers. I don’t know how to help you.” (what kind of self-drag @ writers??? lmao), she said the truth. Iris is never involved in the main plot and that makes me sad because she has so much wasted potential.
I hope they’ll bring back the fighting-crime duo and let Iris be the badass independent strong woman that we’ve seen on Earth-2/ Flashpoint.
