Romantic Plot Tumor: Like Arrow, there are complaints that the hero has no chemistry with the designated love interest, at least romantically speaking. Strangely, the episode "Going Rogue" went out of its way to present Felicity as the perfect companion for Barry, making his attraction to Iris seem even more like this. This even gets lampshaded at the end of the episode right before the two kiss:
Felicity: What is wrong with us? We are perfectly perfect for each other.
Barry: Yet we're sitting here pining for people we can't have.
- It's been getting worse as a lot of fans don't particularly care for Barry constantly meeting and flirting with Iris as the Flash. Lampshaded by Caitlin herself who doesn't care for it either.
