Quote:For me I began to finally like Iris in Season 2. In a way I feel sorry for Candice, she is given poor material to work with IMO, she does the best she can with what she's got.
Quote:Though the reasons you say you disliked Iris in season 1 are all good ones, it was a very frustrating season with the two of them. I think she improved in Season 2 and in Season 3 and I liked her in those, but now in Season 4 I can't stand her again. She's become team leader by no other reason than default really, but, she doesn't actually do anything really except tell people to do stuff they already would do anyway, she's gone back to her season 1 self really, where she has no real character except being Mrs Flash / love interest. The whole "we're the flash" is annoying too, no Iris you are not the Flash. Barry is. Imagine if Mon El when he was seeing Kara said "we're supergirl" that'd be ridiculous, so Iris saying that is equally absurd.
Quote:To me I think she's going back to the character she started as. And that's a pity.
Yeah I will say some of that has bugged me too. I like her but she shouldn't be team leader (Cisco or Caitlyn should...sorry Barry). Iris needs to have her own job. For years she was distant from the main plot of the episodes every week but by fixing that now they've robbed her of having her own job or her pursuing her own interests. We need to see her back as a journalist.
I always liked in the comics how Iris just sort of seemed to roll with the punches that Barry was the Flash. He was worried about telling her and she told him she already knew because he talked in his sleep.
