    I loved seeing Iris as a speedster! In a way, I wish they could've found a way to restore Barry's speed and let Iris keep hers. I think Irish did a good job as a speedster. The meta with ability swapping ability is sortta scary. I hope DeVoe doesn't get his clutches on him.

    Good episode the ability to swap powers is pretty cool. I wonder if DeVoe thought about Harry making a thinking cap. And if he has a plan for that.

    I was watching this with my sister. We alternated between incredulous whaaaats and peals of laughter every time Iris claimed she was the team’s leader.

    I knew this was going to be a one off episode, but that was still kind of disappointing. An "Iris is the speedster instead of Barry" feels like something to which they should have dedicated an arc of at least a few episodes. Maybe they could have even changed the intro like Arrow did with the Diggle arc earlier this season.

    They're really determined this season to make Iris as irritatiing as possible. Shoehorning her into team leader, I mean really? ooh "I'm the boss".

    I will be the first to admit Linda complains about the weirdest things but they probably should of built up more of Iris being charge instead of dropping it in that episode

    I always thought Oliver was in charge especially given the current arc on Arrow

    That's what the show would like you to think! He tries to be...but he'd get his buns roasted with out Felicity...and Barry would get his roasted without Iris.

    Iris was never in charge or had much say ungtil they shoehorned her into it this season. There was no build up to even imply that they were gonna put her in charge. They must have got up one morning and thought "hey I know, we'll make iris boss". She isn't even a good character, or maybe it's not the character that's the problem but the writing for that character

    I dunno...I was just floored by two negative posts from you. I remember you from past posts, and I don't remember everything being dissected into various negative points. It just seems (like in the Supergirl post) you want to complain because Iris got an episode.

    Personally, I like Iris.

    When Linda gets an idea in her head she constantly looks for ways to support it. It's not exactly new, that she dislikes Iris.

    I see. Maybe Linda wants to marry Barry.

    Na , I quite like Barry but not that much

    I have noticed the CW seems to have problems writing good compelling stories with good character development. another thing they have a real problem with is writing romance. Supergirl had real promise when CBS had it but when it moved to CW season 2 was really messy. So I think it might be a CW problem and not the actors fault in the least. They can only work with what they're given and unfortunately IMO the writing isn't great.

    Fortunately, or perhaps unfortunately there are characters on these shows I really like which stops me from quitting the shows

    Thati recently finished rewatching S1(I miss Cat). I'm not seeing the changes between writing. Production values but the stories are largely the same
