[#Podcast Link in Bio! 🚨 We’ll definitely be discussing this on the next episode.] So my boy Younis @realworldofflash is catching a lot of heat for calling #IrisWest annoying, needy and selfish this season... which reminds me a LOT of people’s complaints of #FelcitySmoak during Season 4 of #Arrow with her relationship with Oliver. But who do you find *more* annoying and why? Comment below and let me know. I’m curious how you guys feel about Iris’ character so far this season on #TheFlash. 👇🏾👇🏾👇🏾
So the moment Iris exclaimed, “How could you leave me?!” to Barry in this week’s episode I was kinda done with how she’s being written this season. That’s no slight against @candicekp - she’s an amazing actress! But #TheCW writers don’t seem to be able to handle writing strong female characters without them coming off as “bitchy”, clingy or irrational. Iris - he didn’t leave you. He was forced to go into the Speedforce to save the WORLD. And no. “We’re” not the #Flash. Barry is. At the end of the day, wife or not, he’s the one in the field risking his life. It just comes off as selfishness and neediness rather than genuine affection. That said - I still think Season 4 #FelicitySmoak is more “annoying”... but this season of the Flash is still early so that could change. Lol. But that’s just me. What do you guys think?
