I really don't envy Blood's bodyguards - they get Swiss-cheesed in about three seconds flat by Slade, and for something they weren't even responsible for! Man, it stinks to be a low-level goon, doesn't it? You get all the pain when the boss messes up.
What Oliver needs is some sort of independent corroboration, some sort of clue that maybe Laurel wasn't completely off-base despite her drug-induced paranoia. On the other hand, he doesn't find the missing file (in and of itself) at least a little curious?
You mentioned that everyone is focused on the fact that it wasn't Blood under the skull mask, and suddenly I'm reminded of the first season episode when it wasn't Ollie under the hood, it was Diggle!
I wonder how long it will take for this fact to occur to Oliver and his team?
Definitely not in cahoots! :-D
I'm reminded of the saying, "Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you." Oliver, of all people, should appreciate this. That, and "a lack of evidence is, in itself, evidence."
Also, Oliver's team never really answered a critical question: where did the Mirakuru serum in Starling City come from? Are they just accepting that a corrupt low-level beat cop just happened to find the stuff... somewhere? Really?
Did I miss something? Why did Arrow and Laurel have to sneak into the Hall of Records in the middle of the night? Couldn't she just walk in during business hours and request the file? It would certainly be a lot less dangerous that way. Also, why does Ollie completely disregard the fact that said file is completely missing? Isn't that, I don't know, more than a little *suspicious* under these circumstances?
I wonder if Lady Sif will remember Coulson from their admittedly brief encounter in New Mexico during "Thor"? Coulson definitely should remember her. And has Thor told Sif about Coulson's death at the hands of Loki in "The Avengers"? Will Sif spill the beans to Thor that the Son of Coul isn't dead anymore?
Thank you for clarifying the statement. I think, though, that devout followers of pretty much any religion may find it challenging to marry someone who did not share their beliefs, especially if that person happened to not believe in God at all. One of my ongoing criticisms of "Bones" is the simplistic and occasionally downright childish portrayal of Booth's Catholic faith. It's frustrating, especially since I find the show so enjoyable otherwise.
@Carissa Pavlica - I take exception to your claim that Catholics have difficulty accepting people with other religious beliefs. This may be true of the manner in which Catholics are (unjustly) portrayed on TV, but it is hardly a reflection on real life. Catholics in general are very accepting of other religions and faiths.
Jim Garner apparently wrote O-87 instead of 0-8-4. In any case, I find the revelation that Skye herself is an object of unknown origin to be fairly interesting - especially since Coulson already compared her to an 0-8-4 in the second episode (the one titled, appropriately enough, "0-8-4").
Regarding the cell phone - Reese made the call using VoIP (Voice-over IP); VoIP requires an Internet connection, rather than cell phone service. Do you get Internet service on trans-Atlantic flights?
