Arrow: Diggle Suits Up

Finally, after 3 seasons, Diggle is finally getting his own suit… granted, it’s a bicker jacket and a helmet, but I bet there’s more to it 😀 ! Also, that helmet looks like something Magneto would wear…

Also, a new poster for the show has come out, and it features the Arrow’s new green suit… What do you think?

This Week on TV (30 March – 05 April)

Scorpion: Crossroads

scorpion-episode-20

I can’t believe that Toby messed that up! Happy was gorgeous, wearing a dress, heels and even perfume, and Toby fell asleep?! What a shame… and I do hope she gives him another chance before the end of the season, I hope they do not drag this much longer, at least one of the couples deserves something good.

About Walter, I’m so glad he finally admitted somehow to Toby and himself that he’s in love with Paige, but talk about bad timing, right?!

    

Castle: Habeas Corpse

-1635ca2bea6a3138

Best part of the episode was, hands down, Esposito and Ryan practicing their dance moves. It’s also great to see how close Alexis and Beckett have gotten.

    

iZombie: The Exterminator

la-et-st-izombie-recap-the-exterminator-20150331

This week Liv consumed the brain of a hitman, someone who showed no emotions or sympathies… so she spends the whole episode not reacting to things… obviously when the effects wear off, she fells everything and is a bit overwhelmed… poor Liv!

She and Ravi find a new zombie, her friend from Med School, but there’s a catch, this zombie hasn’t eaten since she was transformed, so she’s full zombie and Ravi wonders if he feeds her, if she will return to her more Liv-like undead state. It doesn’t work and she almost kills Ravi, and Liv, haven eaten the brain with no emotions, takes a bit too long to save him, but she eventually does, and all is well, except that she killed a person… not good!

Meanwhile, what the hell is Blaine doing with those kids? Is he eating them?! Or transforming them?! We might need some answers… soon!

Liv always has the most amazing things to say, “Are you cool with naming our trivia team Piggy And The Brain?”… enough said!

   

The Flash: Tricksters

The-Flash-970x545

Casting the original Trickster as The Trickster was a stroke of genius, specially integrating so well he’s age and the new one.

Then there the big matter, Barry doesn’t know how to trust Wells and spends the episode pulling back, until finally realizing that for the time being he needs to trust him somehow. This, and in order to protect Iris, Barry reveals himself to Eddie, and he and Joe ask Eddie’s help in keeping her safe, to which he agrees. So now, Eddie knows the secret too! And so the plot thickens… right now, Iris is the only one left in the dark. That was a definitely change in these kind of plots… generally the actual boyfriend doesn’t know that her BFF/future something is in fact the superhero.

We also got a bit of a backstory to Harrison Wells, or Eobard Thawne, because now that we know that the real Wells is indeed dead, is weird to call him that, right? Does that thingy means that he can change his appearance again if he chooses to?!

    

Forever: Punk is Dead

3944172_forever-punk-is-dead-roundtable--photos_7a26bc05_m

David Krumholts as younger Abe was a perfect casting, just perfect!

I don’t see Jo and Isaac together… it just seems weird, I don’t see any chemistry there, at all.

The best part of the show for me continues to be Joel David Moore as Lucas… he’s great!

A lot of the “science” in this episode made very dubious, like after hydration, I have my well founded doubts that the body would look so “fresh”. Also, getting a DNA sample just like that in a body that has been inside a wall for over 20 years, mummified and hydrated?! Damn, I know of better preserved samples in which obtaining DNA of any kind is much harder…

   

Cougar Town: Mary Jane’s Last Dance

29GUIDE2-master675

And it’s over =( !!! Six seasons… I can’t believe it’s really over! The last episode was great, with everyone saying to Jules what they really feel about her… oh the tears!

   

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: One Door Closes

agents-of-shield-one-door-closes-gonzales-flashback

I maintain last week’s position, though not so firmly… The only thing good that Mac did was to save Fitz’s life, thank him for that, but everything else… well….

I love the flashbacks, there were a nice little tie-in to Captain America: the Winter Soldier, though, and even after hearing all those stories, I still can’t understand why these 5 people decided that theirs would be “the real SHIELD”… why?! Because they all get a vote? Not buying it!

I’m still convinced/hoping that Bobbie’s allianges are really to Coulson, especially because she insisted to go to get Skye, in order for them not to hurt her, though that quite didn’t work out like it was supposed to.

And how cool was that it was actually nice little Simmons who brought down Mockingbird?! Epic!

Speaking of Simmons, and Fitz, please tell me that they won’t get all wrapped up in this whole “real SHIELD” business, please?! I really want them to be on the same page and with Coulson.

Melinda May is my hero, ‘nough said!

It’s great that Skye is learning to control her powers, though having just wounded someone might be a step back. Now she off with Gordon, does that mean that she’s leaving the team? Going off the grid?!

Hunter is back! Man, I love that guy! From all the new characters, he’s my favorite, for sure. His exchange with Coulson by the end was hilarious, so now, finally, Hunter is a SHIELD agent!!!!

    

Arrow: Public Enemy

arrow-aresenal-arrow-black-canary

Wow, after a few bumps in the road, I feel that Arrow is getting on track again. Things are not looking good for Oliver.

After Maseo’s attack, the Mayor is dead and Ray is hurt. Felicity spends most of the episode on the episode looking after Ray, while I get why this is, I felt that she should have been with the team, but hey, we can’t have everything. On the plus side, she saves Ray’s life – which I’m glad, I like him – and he decides to tell her that he loves her. Well, this is Felicity, and this is her 3rd “I love you” to which she did not reply, this one though, she clearly didn’t feel the same and made some very weak excuses and left the room. Her mother, who sees right through her, tells her that the reason she did not say that she loves him back is because she doesn’t, she loves Oliver, and she’s got a choice to make. The fact that Ray knows the plot to the 34 seasons of Doctor Who left me super happy… point to Palmer!

Meanwhile, Lance issues a manhunt for the Arrow and Ra’s (being the little son of b****h that he is) helps the issue by telling him exactly who it is behind the mask… Oliver Queen! So Lance wastes no time at all and issues an arrest warrant for Oliver, who after running and putting every single person of his team in jeopardy, feels he has no other choice than to surrender. Team Arrow is not happy about this! But while John Diggle doesn’t know what to do next, Roy takes matters into his own hands, buts on the Arrow green uniform and presents himself to the police announcing that they have the wrong man! Roy Harper, you are officially my favorite member of that team right now!

Captain Lance needs to chill, seriously, it’s getting absurd! I wonder if somehow Sara is revived, if he will still feel the same about vigilantes. Accusing Oliver of being responsible for her joining the league?! Bah, he wasn’t to blame… His treatment of Laurel? Very bad! And hey, I did not like Laurel before, but man, she’s really growing on me and her father is being ridiculous.

    

Law & Order: SVU: Devastating Story

NUP_167536_0113  Law & order SVU Devastating Story Hagritay Morrow

It’s incredible how a lie can do much more harm than a thousand truths…

   

Supernatural: Inside Man

tumblr_nm785dadhd1rkfde2o1_500

Bobby’s back!!!

Dean and Crowley are bonding!!!

Sam and Castiel are keeping secrets from Dean and trying to break Metatron out of Heaven!!! And wow, did that turn around… Castiel and Sam are not kidding around.

Crowley finally threw Rowena out! Finally man!

Oh, I love this show!

   

The Big Bang Theory: The Skywalker Incursion

106186_wb_1237b

My inner geek was super happy about this episode, half of it is about George Lucas and Star Wars and the other half is about Doctor Who … wonderful. The fact that Penny actually watches Doctor Who, albeit forced by Leonard, lifts my spirits… and she pays attention too! Then there’s the whole Game of Thrones reference, priceless!

This Week on TV (23-29 Mar)

23mar_1

Scorpion: Young Hearts Spark Fire

Young-Hearts-Spark-Fire-2-600x347

While trying to rescue a group of hikers from a mountain, team Scorpion’s helicopter crashes, eventually causing a wildfire. While Sylvester stays behind with the pilot, the rest of the team goes and tries to find the hikers.

My favorite bits of this episode involved Toby. First, Toby diagram with the explanation on why he knows that Walter is in love Paige, to which Walter denies (though not very convincingly). Then there’s all those wonderful interactions between Toby and Happy… after their kiss last week, he’s acting all protective of her (though she thinks it’s annoying) and ends up telling her that he’s in love with her. I was so glad that she did not run!!!!

   

The Flash: Rogue Time

TheFlashRogueTime

After the all the distress that was last week, when Barry finds himself on the day before, he decides to change a few things up and arrest the Weather Wizard before he’s able to do any real damage. Dr. Wells warns him of the consequences, but really how could this day be any worse than the previous one?!

Well, Captain Cold and Heat Wave return (with Cold’s sister), they kidnap Cisco and his brother and force him to disclose the Flash’s true identity. Meanwhile Barry, so sure now of Iris feelings, decides to make a HUGE move on her, only to be punched by Eddie – sorry dude, but you totally deserved that!

In the end Barry has a talk with Cold, where he considers that he doesn’t have to kill people to get what he wants and then he decides to relocate… all very civil! I get why they did this, they’re clearly paving the way for the new show, but although I can comprehend that Cold doesn’t really have to hurt people, he really likes to be in control, I don’t see Heatwave playing by the same rules… so it will be definitely fun to watch how that plays out.

There was a nice parallel between Cisco and Well’s talk this week and the last. In both Well’s told Cisco that he saw him as a son and was proud of him, but this week he did not kill him!!! Hurray for that! He does kill someone though, Iris’s boss, which leads Barry to suspect that something is up with Wells. Well done Barry, it only took you 16 episodes!!!!

By the way, the time in which Cisco can build 3 extremely different guns out of someone’s house – not a lab – is amazing… more over if you consider that one of those guns fires gold (?!).

   

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Love in the Time of Hydra

Agents-of-SHIELD-Love-in-the-Time-of-Hydra-4-1024x592

Remember when we were all worrying about Mac when he was stuck in the city?! Oh, well, not I’m wishing he had died right away, maybe that way we could have kept Tripp. The “Real SHIELD” unveiled itself this week to Hunter, they say that stand for truth and honesty and transparency, Coulson, like Fury, keeps way too many secrets and that’s not how SHIELD should run.

Hunter (luckily) is having none of it – I always liked Hunter, but now I love him, and I can’t believe how Mac and Morse are acting… though I still have a slight hope that Morse is indeed a double agent and that she will side with Coulson in the end. Hunter managed to escape this new SHIELD, though he’s unable to contact Coulson.

After May and Coulson talk, he decides to bring Skye to a secure and secret location, where she can be safe and work on her powers… she feels like she’s in prison, but really, amazing timing. Simmons delivers Coulson a new pair of gloves for Skye, that will minimize the effects of her powers, but she’s feeling conflicted about it. Fitz, for his hand, thinks that there’s nothing wrong with Skye, or him for that matter, the real one on the wrong there is Simmons, she has given up to her fears and insecurities and is too much changed. He’s so on the nose with this one, Simmons IS changed for the worst and her new behavior unfortunately falls right in line with the new SHIELD.

The Ward and Agent 33 storyline was just plain weird… I liked that it involved Talbot, but that was it… I found it utterly dispensable.

    

Arrow: Suicidal Tendencies

arrow-image-suicidal-tendencies-brandon-routh-david-ramsey

Now I’m officially not getting Felicity, I mean, she’s right with all that “I want someone who’s not afraid to be happy”, but after Ray doubted her in that way, I was a little disappointed that she did not give him any crap – she has no trouble doing so with Oliver, so why was she so ready to be all lovey dovey with Ray?!

They better start fixing it!

I get that Captain Lance is hurt with his daughter and everything, he has the right to be, but he’s going a bit off the rails…

And Maseo?! WTF?! Now you’re imitating the Arrow too?! I’m so disappointed, I like(d) him so much.

I will miss Deadshot!

Diggle and Lila’s wedding was wonderful, but I wish we could have seen a bit more of it… maybe Oliver’s best man speech?! Felicity catching the bouquet and glancing at Ollie?!

   

Law & Order: SVU: Parole Violations

150317_2853484_Parole_Violations_anvver_1

This week the episode dealt with the abuse and power that Parole Officers have upon the parolees, it finally introduced some background and family for Carisi and dealt with the fact that men can be raped by women.

I don’t think they had ever gone there in 17 years, and I’m so glad they finally did. Rape in itself is a taboo, but somehow, when it’s the fact that men can in fact be raped by women, there’s more than a taboo, there’s a huge disbelief. Not so long ago I was having a talk with my mother (highly intelligent and liberal woman) and we were talking about rape and for some reason I brought up this particular subject (men being raped by women) and she (intelligent, worldly woman) said that she did not think it was possible for such a thing to happen… So I’m glad that they finally took on a case that not only shows that it happens, it can happen, and unfortunately how unlikely it is to be acknowledge.

   

Supernatural: Paint it Black

supernatural-recap

How can they still put a new spin on old ghost stories still amazes me. Dean, confession, church and nuns?! Funny as usual.

   

Criminal Minds: Rock Creek Park

CM_RedRockCreek_SG_2

The case this week was a bit f* up, even though it wasn’t at all creepy or weird or deadly. But the fact that those 2 people had such a twisted view of things… wow…

But there’s only one thing that matters in this episode (besides the fact that Kate is already showing), was that little bit in the end… REID GOT A DATE!!!! I’m so happy for him!!!

Flash and Arrow and damn… I was surprised this week.

It’s always incredible when a 22/24 episode per season show can still pull the rug out from under you on the middle of the season. Be warned, they will be spoilers!

the-flash_banner

Lets start with The Flash and that amazing episode. The villain was intriguing, Cisco and Caitlin were hilarious and sweet and funny (as usual). But Wells, oh man, Harrison Wells!!! We had all figured it out a while back that he was the man on the yellow suit, but now he’s not only gazing at his suit, he’s speeding. Oh yeah people, Wells is running (Flash running) and leaving behind a red lighting. But something is wrong though, he’s not able to maintain the speed and in fact, for a moment there, he’s not even able to stand up. This beg the question, is he really the “Reverse Flash” we saw a couple of episodes ago? Or they are in fact the same person at different moments in time?!

tumblr_niya3hBiQ71qm6yoeo1_500

Damn it, it looks like The Flash writers really know what they’re doing. Perfect moments come whenever Joe and Barry share the same space, their relationship is just magic – and Joe might just be my favourite character on this show. Even Iris was pretty OK this week.

Arrow-Season-3-Wallpaper

Now lets move on to Arrow and Team Arrow shines one more. For me this episode really brought Roy and Laurel up.

It’s so amazing to see Roy be a man, something he’s not often allowed the chance to be, being the youngest of them all, but here he helps Laurel come to her own, he stands up for Thea and wow, his fight choreographies are just the best.

Laurel Lance, wow, and I never thought I would say this, but wow. They are doing it so right. They are showing how not like her sister she is, but how she deserves a chance to prove that she’s capable. I’m glad she gets her ass kicked and is almost shot, and falls when she tries to jump, and that suit, ugly as hell, but hey, by the end of the episode I couldn’t help but like her a bit more (which in all honesty, was not hard at all).

Felicity finally came around, realizing that the heroes fight for those they love who are still alive and goes to help not only Team Arrow, but Ray Palmer as well. I did not like that closeness between them when she was patching his wounds, though I admit, Ray Palmer is really growing on me (and I would totally watch his would be spin-off).

Oliver is standing! Oh yeah! Did Tatsu really just treated him with traditional medicine and penicillin? And could have happen that as made Maseo leave his wife? Was he somewhat responsible for their child’s death? Just trying to guess here.

Well done Thea, though I do not approve of her relationship with her father, I did like to see her standing her ground and lecturing him, it was nice for a change to see how grown up she’s gotten. And what about that last scene, hey?! So her DJ/Wannabe Boyfriend is a member of the League?! I did not see that one coming!

The fighting on this episode was insanely good. Between the Arsenal/Black Canary team up and the flashbacks to Hong Kong with Maseo and Tatsu and Oliver fighting, and Tatsu and Maseo killing those League members like it was nothing… brutal! Amazing!

Arrow: Left Behind

Arrow is back and let me take a moment to wipe all the tears away (and now my headache just got bigger). Left behind is an incredible well chosen title… Oliver is gone and everyone is feeling a little left behind… Caution, there will be spoilers.

arrow-left-behind2

With Oliver gone for 3 days, Team Arrow does its best to keep the baddies of the streets, with Diggle wearing the Arrow’s costume and being a rather bad bowman. Still, Roy and Diggle raise to the challenge and do their best, while Felicity commands the troops from the Arrow cave, all the while maintaining that Ollie will be back, he has always came back before. The boys though, are not so sure and John tries to warn her that she should ready herself, that maybe this time things did not went Oliver’s way, but she’s having none of it.

It’s not until Malcolm gets there (for the second time) with the sword that killed Ollie, with his blood all over it, that she crumbles and admits that he is gone. Then, unable to process her grief, she tells off Ray on his plans for the ATOM suit, saying that she can’t lose another friend, and allows the bad guys to run off with a bunch of evidences, which will allow most of the people they had put away for the last 8 months go free, because she was afraid to lose Diggle and Roy too. This leads her to conclude that there is no “it” without Oliver, she’s DONE.

arrow-02_612x380

Roy is broken by the lost of his friend and mentor, and Diggle is as lost as Felicity, not knowing where to go from there. Meanwhile Laurel deals the only way she can, she puts on her sister’s Canary costume and off to the street she goes, after the bad guys that were released for lack of evidences.

Meanwhile, in the flashbacks to Hong Kong, we learn that Oliver went against Waller’s orders and helped Maseo in getting Tatsu back. And this is the reason he’s alive, Maseo takes him to Tatsu in order for her to save him (as to how, I assume we are going to learn next week). So, take a deep breath people, Oliver Queen is ALIVE!

arrow_leftbehind_oliver

  • This was probably the first episode (ever) that I did not find Laurel insufferable. The fact that she consoled Diggle and stayed strong, made me like her a bit.
  • I loved that Thea is worried about her brother (finally), but poor girl, she can put together that her ex boyfriend is Arsenal, but can’t get to the conclusion that her brother, that is always with Roy, is in fact the Arrow?!
  • Where is the hallowed ground where they fight their battles? Because they can get there in next to no time, but the weather is totally different.
  • So, are Malcolm and Thea going on the run? Or is she putting her foot down?!

Arrow: The Climb

This Arrow winter finale was heartbreaking and totally unexpected… there will be a lot of spoilers

AR309b_0153b_article_story_large

Ra’s al Ghul and The League of Assassins give Oliver 48 hours to deliver Sara’s killer to them, otherwise they will kill 50 people a day. This puts a rush on team Arrow to find the killer, which they do. The DNA from the arrow matches Oliver’s and this leads him to think that Malcom Merlin set him put. They’re able to find out that Malcom was indeed in town when Sara was killed, but more, he wasn’t alone, Thea was with him. So Oliver asks her about Merlin and she plain out lies to him. So he returns as the Arrow to ask some questions and she fights him and gets away (while defending Merlin). Soon after Merlin seeks out Oliver and shows him a video of Thea murdering Sara, while under the influence of a powerful drug that made her susceptible to suggestion and then she forgot everything. Knowing that the League will hold her guilty (even with the knowledge that Malcolm drugged her), Oliver has no other choice than to take his sister place and reveal himself as Sara’s killer to Ra’s al Ghul, Nyssa and the others and demand a trial by combat, which leaves him with 13 hours to set his affairs in order.

Oliver then says his goodbyes, warning Thea that Malcolm is not to be trusted (which she ignores completely), saying goodbye to Roy and urging him to protect Thea, declining John’s offer to accompanying him and saying goodbye to Felicity, where she asks him to kill Ra’s al Ghul and he tells her that he loves her. He then proceeds to the CLIMB, ultimately arriving to the neutral ground that Ra’s has set for their match… obviously he loses, ending up with a blade through his chest and falling from the top of the mountain…

Everywhere else, Dinah Lance arrives to town and notices right away that something isn’t right, Laurel crumbles and tell her that Sara is dead, promising to make whoever did it pay, to which Dinah is all for. Meanwhile, Ray shows Felicity his plans for the ATOM suit and asks her help to protect the people in the city.

Arrow-309-Rise-of-The-Atom

  • How could Thea defend Malcolm? No, seriously, she knows what he is and still, when Oliver is warning her she tells him not to make her choose?! WTF Thea?! Between a brother who would die for her or a father that uses her, she would have a problem choosing?!

arrow-climb-thea

  • Thea is bad for Ollie, right? I mean, here is this guy literally dying for his sister and she, who complained so much about all the lies last year, is lying to his face? This dynamic needs to change.
  • Nice tie-in with The Flash.

yellow-blur-115169

  • Did Ra’s al Ghul just said that no one has challenged him in 67 years? How fu**ing old is he?
  • How could Nyssa believe Oliver? Nissa knows him and she knew Sara, how could she ever, for a moment, believe that he would kill her… I wouldn’t find weird that she would ask, he would never do it.

ar309a0048bjpg-044bee_960w

  • Laurel is just plain weird, so she keeps secret from dad for months, then in a matter of two days blabs about it to Thea (ironic much) and then to her mother, whom she hardly sees?!
  • Oliver and Roy’s hug drove me to tears. This guy is the true Speedy!

(source)

  • However, that simple and curt handshake with John Diggle said more than hours of words would.

(source)

  • My heart literally broke when Oliver said his last “I love you” to Felicity. It was all calm and certainty and heartbreak… damn you!
  
  • Why is everyone so convinced that Oliver can win in his match with Ra’s is beyond me, first Malcolm Merlyn and then Felicity seem sure that he can win… fools! To Malcolm is good either way, still, it would have been better for Oliver to win.
  • Maseo is in the League because something bad happened, right? He would never have join if his wife and son were not dead, so will we be seeing them murdered during the rest of the season? Tatsu can have a swordfight in every episode from now on… I approve!

00_zps5d51cb91

  • Ray is cute and all, but this episode should have been all about Oliver, Felicity and Ray just took up to much time 😦 …
  • This… 😥
  
  • What I think will happen next: Maseo will find Oliver still alive and lie to Ra’s al Ghul, saying that he is in fact dead (because let’s not forget that Maseo clearly told him that he wanted him alive and all); the fall wasn’t as high as I originally though (as seen in the preview for the next episode), so this will mean that Ollie is alive (duh!) and he’ll probably be out of commission for a bit, but alive. No I’m gonna go and cry in the corner… January can’t come fast enough…

The Flash & Arrow epic crossover!

Let me start by saying that it’s pretty cool that we have two superheroes who live in the same universe… that means we can have more moments like these!!! The crossover event was pretty amazing, very cool scenes, witty dialog, a bit of stabbing at each world and methods, but most of all a realization that these two guys are really friends and that’s just super!

Arrow-208-1

The Flash – Flash vs. Arrow:

tumblr_ng1mki97TK1qh0nwmo2_500

  • “Bad Barry” is kind of cool, at least he tells what he’s thinking, which is something real Barry could do a little more often.
  • Felicity’s clothes on fire – PRICELESS!!!
  • Why Oliver would win? Because he looked at Wells and thought that something was wrong with him!!!
  • Diggle’s reaction to Barry’s speed was fantastic: “Does he does everything really fast?”. I just love Diggle so much!

tumblr_ng1cg7Sh661tus7o2o1_250tumblr_ng1cg7Sh661tus7o2o2_250tumblr_ng1cg7Sh661tus7o2o3_250tumblr_ng1cg7Sh661tus7o2o5_250 tumblr_ng1cg7Sh661tus7o2o6_250tumblr_ng1cg7Sh661tus7o2o4_250

  • I’m glad Iris “broke up” with The Flash, that was sounding way too much like the Lois/Superman dynamic, with Iris being too annoying for that.
  • That said, her crush on Ollie was cute, too bad she said it to Barry (poor guy), who already has her boyfriend to worry about.
  • Felicity reiterating how she and Barry will never happen… we all got it =/…
  • The way that Felicity and Ollie acted throughout the whole episode… they looked like a couple, she can even manage to get the reactions she wants on cue. And his smile… ohhhh…

tumblr_inline_ng0r62r2J41rmukpk tumblr_ng127zmgGw1sr6d2do1_500

  • At least now we know why Eddie Thawne will go against the Flash…
  • The big surprise of the episode was the reaparence of Ollie’s baby mamma, right? I can only assume that she’ll be back sometime in the second half of the season…

Arrow – The Brave and the Bold:

tumblr_ng1mki97TK1qh0nwmo1_500

  • Bart Allen!!! Well, Captain Lance, are you foreshadowing the Impulse, Flash nr 4, or was it just a really cool reference to make?! I go with the third ;-).
  • Wasn’t that the best possible way to introduce Flash in this episode?!

tumblr_ng1amrjApz1tgcum7o1_400

  • Lyla and Oliver bonding is just the best! Even if it’s how if you’re fighting some kind of extreme people, you have to able to go to extremes yourself – ARGUS and Amanda Waller in every single word.
tumblr_ng18gqLuPw1sjxzs0o1_400tumblr_ng18gqLuPw1sjxzs0o2_400tumblr_ng18gqLuPw1sjxzs0o3_400
  • Cisco is the ultimate fanboy. And extremely helpful, he and Felicity make one hell of a team.

tumblr_ng1g8lShQT1qbvapjo1_500tumblr_ng1mkoBlqU1qa69wso1_400tumblr_ng1mkoBlqU1qa69wso4_400

tumblr_inline_ng1vlsjpP01sbnovl

  • Doesn’t Thea think it’s kind of weird that her ex-boyfriend hangs out all the time with her brother and her brother’s ex-secretary and bodyguard? Shouldn’t she know a little better? Because there’s no way that the Roy from when she met him would be friends with those people.
  • I love the lingering and meaningful looks between Ollie and Felicity and I was so glad that Ray was not on this week’s episode.

tumblr_inline_ng1vudy1u21sbnovltumblr_inline_ng1vusYAvI1sbnovl

  • One can hope that after the big lesson Barry taught Ollie that he might relax and put Oliver Queen in first place sometime, even if it’s only for a bit.
  • Pretty cool gesture of the “Arrow Team”, to have a place for Barry to hang up his suit when he’s in town… we hope that’s sooner rather than later.
  • Cisco is also kind of amazing, tweaking up Ollie’s suit like that, but keeping the hood because of sentimental value… Oliver thanks you so much Felicity!

tumblr_inline_ng1vw0DekJ1sbnovl tumblr_inline_ng1vwguxRG1sbnovl

  • Diggle and Lyla are going to get married again!!!! After 3 previous references of them not being married, that was kind of predictable, but awesome all the same.

tumblr_inline_ng1vr7lRE61sbnovltumblr_inline_ng1vss3Ura1sbnovl

  • Laurel who? For a character that was supposed to be the female lead, she’s irrelevant nowadays.
  • I like that Oliver points out to Barry that Starling is very different from Central city. Later Caitlin and Cisco ponder over why the methods are different – because they deal with metahumans, which makes it less real, while in Starling City, they deal with “normal” people, who are just bad.
  • Barry, to do the Salmon Ladder right, you have to be shirtless… Flash costume doesn’t count…

Arrow: Draw Back Your Bow

This week’s Arrow, Draw Back your Bow was all about relationships.

Cupid

Just a quick recap:

  • A crazy fangirl named Cupid is dropping bodies to get the attention of Arrow, her one true love… she’s cray-cray and ends up on the right place for her;
  • Thea is opening the club and has a new douche DJ/love interest (I like Austin Butler, but did like him as Chase);
  • Ray Palmer asks Felicity out on a platonic non-date diner, that ends up being not platonic at all – it starts with him on the salmon ladder and ends up with a steamy kiss. Ray, the salmon ladder is not yours… and Felicity, don’t get blinded by diamonds worth 10M$ or couture dresses… you love Ollie, don’t ever forget that!!!

  • Oliver is not happy about Felicity’s love life, I fell for the guy. After Diggle tells him that if he doesn’t move, he’ll lose her, he goes there to tell her and finds Felicity kissing the other dude… not cool!!!

  • Diggle suddenly is everyone’s counsel, he tries to tell Felicity how Ollie fells, and then manages to get Ollie talking – good for him. The last scene was particularly nice, with Roy and Oliver showing up at Lyla and Diggle’s house for a late diner, showing how much they are now the family that the 2 guys don’t have… also to illustrate the gap that’s going on with Felicity and Ollive right now, she wasn’t there… instead, she was craving for more kisses from Mister Ray Palmer.

  • Meanwhile in the island, sorry, Hong Kong, Maseo goes out for an assignment and fails to deliver news for over 9 hours. Worried about him, Tatsu wants to go after him and so does Oliver. So they both go, leaving their differences aside for a moment and providing a good moment of bonding between the two, which I guess was the whole point of the flashback… When Oliver asks her: “Why did you leave Japan?”, my first thought was: “Well, she went after Logan (Wolverine), didn’t she?!!” =P

  • Katana is a fitting name for Tatsu in deed!
  • On a happier note: no Laurel this week!!! =D

Now I’m up to date on Arrow!

I’m finally up to date with Arrow. Season 3 has been strong so far, here are some thoughts on the episodes until now:

Arrow-Season-3-Wallpaper

  • It’s great to see them as a team – a real team!
  • Serious Oliver?! You have a problem with baby Sara being in the secret lair? Diggle is right: “who is she gonna tell?”??? Are you really uncomfortable around babies?
  • BTW, Ollie, I like you better with a bow and arrow, though I must admit that you DO know how to use a gun 😉
  • I like kickass Thea a lot, but for one who game her brother and mother such backlash because they were keeping secrets from her, shouldn’t she be behaviouring kind of different? I know Malcom is her dad n’all, but flat out lying like that? That’s not good!
  • Can someone take Laurel away ASAP?! What’s she doing in the show anyway? She’s angry all the time and does nothing more than mess up all the time. She’s lying to her dad!!!! She’s just not a good character… Can we trade her for grown-up Sara?
  • Felicity, I love you girl, but you have to stop crying. Since the season begun, I think you cried in every single episode… come on…
  • Still on you Felicity: so, Ollie basically tells you (AGAIN) that he loves you, and you go “oh, look at the time… better dash!” ?!?!?!?! Seriously?! No talk or anything? The boy was trying…
  • By the way, I want an apartment just like Felicity’s… or Thea’s, I would be OK either way…
  • Ray Palmer… I wasn’t expecting to like him, but I do, a lot. A lot a lot. To the point where I wouldn’t mind if he and Felicity got together… but not for long, ok?! Ollie is still number one in her (and mine) heart!
  • No way Roy is involved in Sara’s death, right? He can’t be. Not now, that he’s so in sync with the Arrow and everything – seriously, how many hours a day does the guy trains, because he’s kicking ass!
  • How cute is Diggle with that baby, right?!
