S3 is definitely something else… Well I liked S3-A. Caitlin’s transformation, Cisco grieving, etc. I personally thought Barry and Iris were cute. The romance wasn’t the main focus anyway. S3-B though… damn. It’s bad. I’ve been pretty vocal about my dislike of Arrow S3 and S4 but even they had somewhat interesting villains, storylines that made sense and a story for everyone every now and then -except laurel of course. I still care very much about the show and the characters, I can enjoy the episodes but huge meh. They need to let go of time travel for a while. Even Smallville did it better ffs and it’s usually more of a Flash thing. Let Barry be a superhero who helps people, saves the world, not spend all his time fixing his mistakes / trying to save his family and friends. Let Iris use her skills, there are so many opportunities for interesting reporter arcs, for her to help the team in her own way… Romance doesn’t have to mean forced drama and soap opera twists that take over the entire plot. Still can’t believe the ending of 316 and the 317 resolution.
Most shows have troubles for their 3rd season so hopefully S4 improves. The writing, gosh. Secrets, idiotic decisions, terrible action, romance for anyone who isn’t played by Tom Cav, plotholes… If at least the season’s big bad was good. Of course I’m curious about his identity but as a villain, Savitar is just cheap Zoom with way less screentime and development.
