I do NOT want Caitlin Snow to be Iris West nor do I want her to become her replacement. I love her just the way she is. And it is exactly because Caitlin Snow is who she is and Barry Allen is the way he is that I love snowbarry so much. They have helped each other’s growth throughout the season and it is exactly that interaction that I love so much. I just can’t wait for the Killer Frost arc and all the angst coming from that.
Besides that, Iris West is a wonderful character and I do NOT want to see her replaced. I want her to have her own story line and grow as a character. I want her to become the amazing journalist that she’s meant to be and I want to see this growth on screen.
