Barry and Iris on The Flash
Posted: Posted December 5th, 2017 by -Riku-

You know, out of all the current couples in the arrowverse shows, Barry and Iris are the couple that I feel have no chemistry at all. Cisco and Gypsy, Joe and Cecelia, Oliver and Felicity, and even the maybe couple of Mate and Amaya have better chemistry than the Flash newlyweds. That's not to say I don't like the characters or the people who play them. I think GRANT and Candace are good at playing their characters and their characters are very likeable. It just feels like they have no on screen chemistry right now. I think part of it is the whole "destined to be together" thing established back in season one. I've rarely been a fan of pre-destined couples. It also doesn't help that we've not been shown a lot of their connection growing as they went from being kids into adults. We're TOLD about things that happened when they were kids, but we've only had one scene of them together in the past and that was the night Joe brought Barry home shortly after his mom's murder. Iris hears him crying in the living and goes to comfort him. THAT is something the show needs more of.

Now I know there are a lot of Olicity haters and I get that. I completely understand. I was in the same boat for all of seasons 4 and 5. However, this season I genuinely feel like those two are an actual couple. Especially given how far they've both developed since the first season and how great they both are with William.

So, does anyone else feel this way?
