I don’t understand why Iris believes anyone at this point. She knows something is up. She knows that STAR Labs was lying about Ronnie/The Burning Man.
Like?? That Brazil lie was so weak. Even though she’s trusting, she wouldn’t want actual proof or confirmation?? Especially with all the shadiness surrounding STAR Labs???
Why even include that Ronnie cousin lie and Iris catching on to it if you’re only going to drop it for that unnecessary love square drama??? What was the point of that plot except to show that everyone just keeps lying to Iris for no good reason -.-
Iris is smart. She has good instincts. I don’t believe she would just accept all these lies even though she knows shady things have been going on. I believed her absolute, unwavering trust before, but it doesn’t make sense now with everything that’s already happened. The only reason why they’re writing her this way is to serve a plot point and to keep an outdated trope. It’s BS and I’m tired of it and I’m angry about it.
This whole journalism arc for Iris has been so lackluster and disappointing. I was getting excited again, but then this happened. The Flash writers need to do better. Her 1A arc was much more satisfying than this nonsense.
Iris West deserves better than this and she is better than this. I hate that the writers just won’t give her some actual agency in this. Like. Why couldn’t Iris investigate Mason? Why did she have to ask Eddie for help?? I wanted to see her actually investigate.
Fingers crossed that she starts investigating on her own and comes across everyone’s lies soon. Fingers crossed that she gets to be written as justifiably angry when she discovers the lies.
Ugh. I’m so mad.
