I acknowledge the arguments for not killing Cecile and Jenna are persuasive. I would accept @SevenStars' suggestion about a change in reality. Both Cecile and Jenna can disappear or be erased and no one remember that they ever existed. Honestly, if Cecile was used better and wasn't meta, she would be an asset. Stop giving her so much airtime and her own story, Wallace!
I hoped that Joe's promotion to Captain was going to mean the return of the CCPD set, but that hasn't happened. Now I I think that elimination of the CCPD set and rarely using Jitters is budget cutting to hire new regular characters like Ralph. In the first couple seasons, Central City was a bustling city with people every where, now all the extras who appeared in almost every episode have been eliminated and the Star Labs set expanded.
I actually think that Iris can be both a reporter and a wife. To me the episode 5 last season was the best episode because Barry went undercover with Iris. The season would have been stronger and more poignant if we were shown Barry and Iris working together on the criminal conspiracy story. We could see Barry determined to spend as much time with Iris, while he also works to help her build the Citizen so she would have something to hold onto after he is gone. But nope, none of that.
It is disappointing that the show continues to have same problems under the new showrunner.
