8. Chester and Allegra's romance

We've heard of a slow burn romance but this was taking it too far. Chester P. Runk and Allegra Garcia were both enjoyable enough additions to The Flash's sixth season, but instead of developing them with some meaningful long-term storylines, the writers opted to throw them into a bland romance that went through all of the motions.

To say that fans had it with "Challegra" would be an understatement. The two started making eyes at each other in season 7 and yet never actually got together until midway through season 9, a.k.a. the final season. Not only that, they went through the typical, tropey, kiss-regret-avoid journey we've seen on TV so many times before. And then when they finally did make it official, they had the typical, tropey doubts and regrets before finally committing. It was all surface-level storytelling, there was very little depth.

The fans of the show didn't care about the romance enough to justify the amount of time that the show invested in it. Again, this was the final season and fans wanted to spend time with the actual main characters of the show on their final televised journey. This storyline achieved nothing but taking away from that, and honestly you can't blame the fans for feeling that way.
