I’m currently watching the latest episode of “The Flash” and we’re at the point where Barry feels defeated and Joe is giving him the good ol’ pep talk that all of the CW’s Black characters give at some point. I am so tired of this man’s — Barry — self-loathing. Like, it’s been (what) eight years since the show began? And this man still hasn’t stopped blaming himself for everything?! I am TIRED.
Also, I hate the way the writers just completely dropped the whole Joe is Barry’s father storyline. Remember that episode in season one or two where Joe told Barry that he was his son or… Barry called Joe, dad? I think it was when Joe almost died and Barry was relieved to see him. I don’t remember. Either way, the point is: there was something to continue exploring or at least continue highlighting there.
Anyways, it’s time for this show to end. No Cisco naming the villains/no new villains to name. 🤷🏾♀️ No new Wells and bo real storyline for Iris (why would the writers integrate her into the Flash’s team like that?) I think the only major change that I like is adding Chester. I knew he was going to stay the first episode I saw him in. All that said, I’m looking forward to the show ending and seeing the actors take on new roles.
