Iris and Joe discuss Barry and The Flash being one and the same -- at the top of her voice in a newspaper office as she tries to convince Joe that she would have been an asset in keeping Barry's secret. Joe's silence in not pointing out that she should being using her indoor voice when discussing a crucial secret in an unsecured area suggests that her claim at being an asset is meant to be true (according to the scriptwriters) while her loud, emotional manner proves she is not.

Less Iris focused
7 May 2015 | by jamamaesSee all my reviews

I do really enjoy the flash and this episode was very entertaining with the introduction of Grodd which was really really good. however it came to my attention many episodes of the Flash that they focus a lot of attention on Iris and I have become to really hate her character. I do not care about their love triangle, if they toned it down a bit during some episodes earlier on this might not of been an issue for me. I know end up not paying attention to some silly speech that Isis has when she believes everything is about her.

But apart from this flaw this was a very very good episode and look forward to the end of the season as the finale looks to be set up very well.
