Subj: The Barry Allen self doubting trope
Posted: Thu Mar 24, 2016 at 11:31:35 pm EDT (Viewed 5 times)

okay for too many episodes in Season 2 and even Season 1, Barry has been told that he is limiting himself, that his doubt is crippling him, that he has to believe, etc etc.

And he overcomes the doubt for the episode then goes right back to it again.


This is a guy who as a kid learned that the impossible exists, he believes in the impossible and now he himself IS part of the impossible as it should be impossible for someone to move at superhuman speeds, much less hit time/dimension warp speeds.

He should by now also remember that he was the key and the hope for RF to get home because of his superior links to the speed force, and he did have to help RF hit time warp speeds in Season 2.

He also regenerated from a fractured spine in a matter of weeks which is of course impossible.

Now I know every hero/villain needs a weakness but this constant recycling of the self doubt trope needs to go. It is overused and worn out.

Plus with all of Cisco's pop culture remarks I am surprised he hasn't seemed to have quoted Morpheus from the MATRIX: "FREE YOUR MIND!"

And that is what Barry needs to do.

He has decided to take the right path as it were by NOT using Velocity 9, but he really has to get over his doubt.

Notation: if they want to see how V9 would react with Barry, then take some blood from him and add a few drops of V9 to it and see what happens. Of course seeing trajectory disintegrate has probably demotivated them from trying that.
