just imagine for a second if marc guggenheim wasn’t an incompetent idiot who only cares about fanservice to a vocal minority and could actually think of an interesting storyline for once in his life and in doomworld, instead of vigilante f*licity, we had vigilante iris

like how awesome would it be to have candice finally make a goddamn appearance on one of the other dctv shows and we’d also get to see iris “strap on some leather” (candice’s words not mine lol) and kick some ass and be a fucking bamf

like come on marc i would be a better showrunner than you oh my fucking god

Why Arrow Killing Laurel Will Prove That The Flash Is The Better Show

In this season of The Flash, writers have set up the character of Iris West largely outside of her iconic romance with Barry Allen. It’s a good move - people are invested in her character and her growth beyond Barry, and The Flash is richer for it. Iris’ confrontation and reconciliation with her ailing (and now dead) mother, and the introduction of Wally West as her long lost brother, ties Iris West to the narrative on multiple levels beyond her relationship with Barry. The introduction of Earth 2 Iris West and her role in Jesse Wells’ rescue is another way that the writers are telling us that Iris is present within the narrative, in every way and in any way. There was no reason that Earth 1′s Iris West should be coming to Earth 2, but the writers found a way to integrate her into the storyline, and checked in on Earth 1 multiple times to show how she and Caitlin Snow were doing.

We’re only getting glimmers of the future romance between Barry and Iris, but each episode is a promise that it’s coming, and meanwhile we grow to love Iris outside of any potential romance as she develops as a character in her own right.

Candice Patton talks about this development - about how Iris is “constantly learning and evolving, and making mistakes and learning from them and becoming a stronger, better, version of herself”. There’s a promise that Iris grows alongside Barry, and that she is an important part of the narrative in her own right, and that her struggles and achievements are important too. 

The Flash struggled with this in season 1, and it was the weakest aspect of an otherwise creative and interesting show. But the writers, and Andrew Kreisberg, seem invested in Iris. Better yet, they don’t only see her as one half of a legacy couple, but a legacy character in her own right.

Meanwhile on Arrow, rumours of Laurel Lance’s death shows a stark contrast on Arrow’s investment in their lead female.
