Bastard of Boston
I suppose I understand the notion of focusing on one's biggest issue with the show when discussing the show's issues, but Laurel or no Laurel, this show has problems. It's interesting to track my overall impressions throughout this topic -- from the beginning of the season, to now -- as it's gotten to a point where I now must remind myself it's Arrow night vs. when I'd anticipate it with all my fanboy heart. Every single character is being handled as sloppily as Laurel is. I'm tiring of everyone. Diggle is bland -- not even his feature episode did much to remedy it -- and Felicity is becoming painfully predictable with her *insert random marginally amusing quip here*. I almost wish Laurel was her midseason self, as her 180 turn to staunch cheerleader has been bothering me for weeks.
Have they even bothered to give us a reason why Summer Glau is following Slade? Like, ya know, are they even going to bother discussing how Slade assembled his team? I'd understand being patient, but I somehow have no faith in this show's ability to highlight important plot points. It's like we're just supposed to believe all these people hooked up because they're bad guys and it's just the type of thing bad guys do. So frustrating. They tried to be way too ambitious with this season. They need to stay in their lane next season.
I have to admit, I laughed at that last scene.
Are we taking bets on exactly what kind of fake-out that was? My money is on deathstroke minion getting back up behind Merlyn and that's who she's shooting at.
That or Merlin has super bulletproof armour on.Maybe then we'll see how he's really her dad by getting all butt-hurt about the betrayal. That said it was good to have him back - never thought I'd be happy to see Barrowman turn up in a show,
I also like how 2 guys with bow and arrows are taking down miracuru minions yet the head of ARGUS with the military under her command thinks the only possible way to solve the problem is to level the entire city. How did she get the job again?
I thought this was the last episode to be honest so was pleased when it turned out there's at least one more.
I think BoB has a point in that they may need to devote more time to the trio of Arrow, Diggle and Felicity next year.
Oh, this was interesting... And hilariously funny... Laurel and Lance were, well, let me restrain from comments
Egg mask, or whatever f*** that was on that rather beautiful lady, was such stupid idea.
Love that Merlyn is back... Wish that Thea killed him. Of course she didn't.
Looking forward the finale. It seems that a very hot assassin will be back
