Violett Beane is apparently one of the people who think that there are not enough interactions between female characters on “The Flash.”
In an interview with Lie a Little Better, Beane revealed that she would like to see female characters on the CW series to bond more.
When asked if fans can expect more sisterly moments between Jesse (Beane) and Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) — just like what the two had in Season 3, episode 3, titled “Magenta” — Beane said that she “could definitely see that relationship forming” in the future.
“Caitlin has a lot she could teach Jesse and vice versa,” explained the 20-year-old actress. “I also think the show could use more female bonding and empowerment as well. Jesse and Iris (Candice Patton) have also had friendly moments like that before, and I would love for those relationships to grow, especially with this new relationship with Wally (Keiynan Lonsdale) forming.”
Due to the show’s lack of defining moments between female characters, some people have seen “The Flash” as a “boy’s club,” which arguably makes sense. For instance, Caitlin and Iris’ relationship hasn’t gone into depth just yet despite knowing each other for more than two seasons now.
During a panel at DragonCon in September 2015, Patton briefly addressed the show’s lack of significant moments between female characters. “I think it’s hard when you only have two [main] female characters on the show,” Patton said (via Comicbook.com) at the time.
Although Patton told Comic Book Resources last year that “there’s a friendship” between Iris and Linda Park (Malese Jow), and that Iris and Patty Spivot (Shantel VanSanten) “have the potential to have a very amicable friendship,” both Linda and Patty moved out of Central City before those friendships could fully develop.
