The idea of the show is that Laurel and Oliver will end up together. The thing is, it could (and probably will) take a long time. In the meantime, there has to be something going on, right? Oliver can relate to Helena, but he does not love her. He barely knows her. He loves Laurel, and has decided to stay away from her to protect her and himself. Laurel has mixed feelings, she loves him but she knows he's not trustworthy. I think that she getting involved with Tommy is a bad idea, he may be nicer and more charming than Oliver, but they are very similar, or rather, he is very similar to Laurel's image of Oliver. The new Oliver has many layers and has more depth, Tommy is a rich boy with no credit card. That tantrum was telling. I don't feel sorry for him, sorry. Get a job!!! I think the only reason the writers are pushing Tommy and Laurel is to get her on a storyline that does not mix her with Oliver, because she has to be on the show, but putting them together too often could end up in too many rejections on both sides to become tiresome.
I'm glad Oliver has another person to confide in and I like him with Helena a lot more than I do with Laurel. I don't really see why Laurel and Oliver should be together other than they have a history. I like Laurel with Tommy a lot more. She smiles and laughs more with him. There's always tension with Oliver. I was completely shocked by Tommy's father; I definitely did not see it coming. I don't watch Revenge so I can't comment on the similarities, but the theme of revenge is nothing new.
I'm so sick of people relating this show to Batman and bloody Revenge! You might as well say shows like Emily Owens, M.D. is like Grey's Anatomy and Supernatural is like Grimm. This show has a completely different tone and feeling to it, with characters that you can actually enjoy unlike Revenge. Season 2 has gone to crap with that show.
Now, as for the one true thing that shocked me due to the incredible twist: Jack Barrowman is Tommy's father? DAMN! Should've seen that one coming.
Ahhh yes,give the terminator a love interest :)
@fortyseven: i was thinking of some of these similarities myself! for a few minutes, i couldn't go past the photo.
The previews for the next episode looks good, glad to finally see another love interest for Oliver, I was shocked to see Tommy's dad, & I agree Tommy is in his late 20s to early 30s..it's about time he starts making his own money & stop living of his dad..but am I the only one who felt like the actors look to close to in age for them to be father & son lol. & I'm still confused at Thea's age, she's still in high school but let they let her go out & drink every night at adult clubs.. I was happy to only see a little of Laural her & Tommy were cute at the end
@katrina -Revenge is the best!!!! I got to review it last week, check it out. @fortyseven I'll def read that
i have started to like Laurel with Tommy and Oliver with Helena.
@Leigh: i didnt know you watched revenge too. great comparison of Oliver with Emily Thorne/Amanda Clarke. We have good taste in picking out shows!! :)
Great episode, I've completely shifted to Oliver/Helena shipper, these two have great chemistry. Their date was great to watch especially when she mentioned her fiancee and Oliver looked disappointed but learned he died. He obviously had a thing for her from the start, I liked the mystery about her at first and he clearly relates to her in many ways. I don't think he'll get with Laurel any time soon and she seems happy with Tommy so its a win/win.
I was a bit shocked about Tommy's father but things will only get interesting from there am sure. I also really hope Moira confides in Walter cause she seems to be in way over her head with Merlyn and the mysterious powerful organisation.
The series has several faults but I did like this episode despite them.
