      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....


The comic storyline of the trial was the absolute nadir of Barry's comic career. Butchering it doesn't really matter.
