Believe it or not, it's still called The Flash and not Team Flash or The Iris. S2-present, Barry has to be stupid, selfish and slow to prop up the supporting characters' relevance. S2 was the team flash show and after that it's been the Iris show. So to be fair, Iris replaced team flash as the primary problem because it's been her show since s3. Iris and the team don't have to leave the show, but they sure as heck should be recurring on an as needed basis. If the story don't require them, don't show them. This M.O. of everyone has to have a scene and lines in every ep makes for clunky storytelling and it shows. Legends is doing it right, why can't Flash. Sorry, but the lead is the lead no matter the gender. The male or female lead is a courtesy title for a supporting character or if they're co-leads. Flash and Arrow don't have co-leads, try again. But if they ever change to The Iris or Felicity or Central City or Star City, then it can be said Candice and Emily are leads.
