->Despite how well done this episode is … there is a nagging issue I can’t ignore: It is a clear example of why the superhero girlfriend needs to evolve. Since the resurgence in superhero films and shows kicked off by ''Film/BatmanBegins'', the superhero girlfriend continues to be written in the same troubling ways that plague her comic-book counterparts. She [[IntrepidReporter can be accomplished]], but not so much to diminish the stature of the masked man who saves her on a nightly basis. She can be intelligent, but not smart enough to deduce that [[ClarkKenting the hero who consistently comes to her aid is her good friend in disguise]]. She’s said to be dynamic, but [[InformedAbility rarely shown as such]]. She’s the emblem of goodness and love, but rarely elevated into becoming her own human being. Since she’s more symbol than person, she becomes more valuable when in danger, or [[StuffedInAFridge actually dead]]. As a result, the archetype is rarely well-written enough that actresses like [[Characters/ArrowverseWestAllenFamily Candice Patton]] can demonstrate their talents. So much of this season has been about Iris’s death and how such a tragedy would affect everyone around her. [[MenActWomenAre But Iris herself has not been an active participant in this story line]].

->Luke Skywalker and his deadbeat dad [spoiler alert] get to swing their glowsticks around like inter-generational ravers; Han Solo runs around like he's just noticed that his gun has turned into a giant hairy spider,;and what does Leia get? She can ''put up a shield.'' Oh, have mercy, Your Grace. But I suppose if they'd have given her a power based what she did in the ''films'', then they'd have had to have come up with something themed around constantly being captured and [[MsFanservice getting her jugs out.]]
