'The Flash' Season 6 Finale: Barry risking his life for Carver and not saving Iris leaves fans feeling furious
Why did Barry want to save this hollow-souled man who knew that Iris had been abducted but couldn't really care less? It's the same question Eva asks Barry before killing Joseph, 'Why do you want to save him?'
There's a time to be a hero, and it seems as if Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) got it wrong this time, or so fans believe. The emotional Scarlet Speedster, along with his team, has been wracking his brain on how to rescue Iris West (Candice Patton) and Kamilla (Victoria Park) from the mysterious Mirrorverse.
Mirror Mistress Eva McCulloch (Efrat Dor) has been liberated from the mirror and has extracted her pound of flesh from Carver. In the finale of 'The Flash', she kills him, despite Barry's best efforts to save him.
The question that arises here is, why did Barry want to save this hollow-souled man who knew that Iris had been abducted but couldn't really care less? It's the same question Eva asks Barry before killing Joseph, "Why do you want to save him?"
Jeez, Barry. Interestingly, earlier in the episode, David Singh's Mirror clone makes Barry an offer: Leave Carver to Eva and Barry can get Iris back. Barry almost considers it, but then Nash gets on the high moral ground and says that Iris would never like that.
*Major eyeroll* And so, when Eva is busy shooting Carver with glass pieces, Barry risks his life to come and save him. *Groan* Fans can't wrap their heads around it either.
"After Carver told Barry that Iris is losing her mind in the mirror. Showed him a video of Iris getting pulled in the mirror. And telling Barry that Iris deserved it because she was coming after him. BARRY DECIDED TO THEM SPEND HIS DAY SAVING CARVER #theflash help me understand," tweeted a fan.
"I get Barry feels like a failure for not saving Carver but that dude was not worth saving," wrote another fan.
"Can’t believe Iris is just going to be stuck in the mirror til god knows when. And instead of Barry getting to save her, he over here tryna save Carver's ass, no artificial speedforce, nun," tweeted a fan.
"Barry who gives a f**k about Eva right now she already Killed Carver. Go find a way to help Iris and the others get back," another fan tweeted. "Fr, no one cares about Carver. Come on Barry, trade Carver for Iris. It’s not that hard my guy," another fan wrote.
Some fans argued that Barry considering the offer was not in character, while others vehemently disagreed. "Barry considering trading Carver in exchange for Iris is perfectly in character for Barry," tweeted a fan.
Well, you win some, you lose some. Though Barry's still not close to winning. What will Season 7 bring?
