    we all know the writers will do what they want. so it's easier said then done sadly. there is indeed alot to fix . like how they plot things out . I agree like what to do with iris and her day job and her wanting to help out team flash/ the star labs team better.


    I have idea's. but I'm not part of those show's writers. so as I said it's easier said then done . :( I just hope they figure t out.

    truth be told I just hope Geoff johns kept in touch with or just plain kept the show runner that was planned for the tnt channel, that was supposed to run the titans show from the jump before tnt bailed on them.

    Cause I don't want any of the current show runners that have shows already, to have more then one and to focus on the one they have already. and more importantly I really don't want Guggenheim to touch this series.


    if this show comes to the cw. for many reasons. a new show runner and team of writers will be fine and have the titan's deal with thing's internationally and present day to set it apart from team arrow and flash. Since the legends deal with time travel and see other environments/ regions.. the same with the latter part \what the legends do can be done with the Titans with out he use of time travel.

    Plotting and structure are the weak points and need to be fixed now or they won't have much of a show left. Oh and if this becomes the Westallen and Friends show, I don't see how this could help. I see nothing but parallels with Felicity and Iris here. When Felicity became all about Oliver I don't think Arrow was the same again. Iris has the most screen time of any and does nothing but stand around and give pep talks to Barry. I guess the writers think she's like the audience and we are to self-insert through her but I don't. Just like they thought most would relate to Felicity mumbling her jokes when she wasn't obsessing over her little fantasy of Oliver, basically fan fiction come to life.

    I love your ideas! Johns has his hands full with the DCEU right now I don't know how much pull or say he has on the show. The current ones in charge aren't doing a good enough job. They need to maybe bring back the writers of Season 1 or find writers that respect the material but can also write great stories. Maybe someone in the original idea range, someone who doesn't rely on tropes so much but on character growth. I think Zack Stentz and Judalina Neira may be the Marc and Wendy of the show. Judalina wrote the majority of S3A with Emily Silver, the Helbing brothers write two, I see mostly Judalina in the credits, seems like the Guggenheim of the show. Stuff needs to be changed. These new writers either need to change gears or we need to bring back the writers of S1 to give the characters life again. I've never seen a positive character like Flash be so depressing to watch. I'd really like to see them right their wrongs this season.

    the only people I can say that can fix comic shows both marvel and DC are J. Michael Straczynski , josh whedon him self and Ryan fuller of heroes /pushing daisy fame and there's that head writer that made the 4400 the show.


    and I love them to have script doctor's too back Carrie fisher is now gone ( I'm sure most didn't know she was one til it was overly mention when she passed away )and have real world advisors how real things works like what the show alias did which Victor Garber had worked formerly .

    Whedon understands good arcs. Chuck Dixon for sure. Tim Kring to a degree. Heroes had so much potential.

    I knew, although I don't think she wanted much credit for it even though she deserved it. She even ghost wrote for sitcoms in the 90s. Highly intelligent woman.

    They're not going to kill off a legacy character.

    Hoping we see a few episodes in the beginning of season 4 where Wally is the actual Flash in the red costume and everything!

    Obviously Barry's not going to be gone for long, but I'd assume season 4 will begin at least a few months after the season 3 finale, that'll be great character development to have Wally being the Flash without Barry's guidance for a while

    They haven't given Wally that much to do so far, I hope we get a ton of him in the next season

    Since he likes to dye his hair, they really should have him dye it red for S4. Just sayin.

    I could Wally replacing Barry for most of 4A, maybe we'll actually see him grow. But I don't think they will permanently hand him The Flash mantel.

    OTOH, this isn't really an apt comparison, seeing as Barry Allen is the star of the series and well-liked main hero. Whereas Laurel Lance was. . . not. She was one supporting character of many, and one who spent a good chunk of the series with the fans hating her and wishing she'd get killed off.

    With Flashpoint only lasting 1 episode, I don't think Wally will be the main Flash for more than 2 episodes. I see Barry being out of the speed force in some form by the 3rd episode of next season.

    Maybe this will be their version of having Wally become the Flash. Rather than have him wear Barry's suit, he wears the gray and red Kid Flash suit from the comics. That way he gets a new suit that he can keep wearing once Barry comes back. But then, if Arrow's any indication of how secondary heroes are handled, he'll probably continue to wear the same suit in perpetuity (see Laurel wearing the same costume in S3 and S4, or Thea at the end of S3, as well as in S4 and S5–not to mention Thea's costume is basically Roy's).

    well, the female speedsters did get the same suit similar to that one time that fake BC wore Laurel's suit
    I'm starting to think that's more of a gender thing...than a secondary character costume issue

    either way, would be nice to see some slight modifications to the current KF suit

    I don't think she was a bad character per say. She just had really weak material. Katie works better as a villain than used and abused Laurel. I don't care what olicitors say, she was dealt a bad hand.

    I agree, which is why I'm fine with Black Siren sticking around as a recurring villain. I just don't want her redeemed, because there's been quite a lot of evidence that, no, seriously, she's hardcore evil and has deliberately and maliciously rejected outreach a couple times already. There is precisely zero reason to believe she's "misunderstood" or "lost", and I don't believe for a second that the show has skilled enough writers to sell "redemption from a state of full and intent evil".

    I think this comes with fleshing out the character more, the finale barely had much of Siren in it. I never accepted the new Canary at all, she's a 2.0 version. The writers need to give Katie more meat to work with in order to have an interesting story line. Quite honestly it doesn't make much sense to keep on 2.0, no offense to the actress it just seems like a cheap replacement.

    She was willing to help Oliver before the team betrayed her and locked her up. She also made a deal with Chase not to harm Quentin.

    I'm going back to re-watch those episodes because they were the highlights of the season. Along with Chase keeping Oliver guessing until the end.
