Quote:Barry also actively stops Iris from telling the court that he is the Flash. Barry refuses to out himself due to endangering Iris and his friends. (man I am sick of that tired old trope)
When it comes to the CW's Flash, so am I. Everyone but the general public already knows he's the Flash. Nearly every enemy he has already knows about Iris or ends up learning about her at some point. So, she's already a target. Every time a new "ally" shows up, Barry unmasks right in front of them DESPITE THE FACT HE KNOWS NEXT TO NOTHING ABOUT THEM!
I thought for sure the show runners would finally fix this problem, only to chicken out in the end. *Shakes head*
As for the episode itself, am I only one who kept thinking this should have happened with the Reverse Flash being the victim instead of DeVoe? The show runners completely butchered this storyline....
It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
