I wouldn't mind superpowers being introduced to the world to keep the universe open if the rest of the story was written strong enough to support it. It's not. You mentioned something very important, that Oliver once had a mission. I can't think of the last time he did anything with that mission in mind. It occasionally comes up when Felicity is giving him a romantic pep talk, but not otherwise. To be honest, I'm not even sure if the lead had a purpose this season. What was Oliver's drive? To determine if he was worthy of Felicity? Talk about lacking depth. The supporting characters had a lot more depth than the lead.

Yeah, Oliver could barely stay alive a few months ago, but now he killed Ra's in record time. Terrible fight scene for the poor old dude to meet his maker. I can't stop replaying the horror of this hour in my head.

It's a trend across the television universe. More and more TV moguls, people who are running three and four shows so that so much of what we watch suffers as a result. Not much is fresh and new anymore. :-(

I laughed out loud at your b) "Struggling here, already" Struggling is definitely the go-to theme of Arrow Season 3! Thanks so much for sharing. Well said!

Modwild

You don't have to apologize. I said the show was terrible, you can definitely say the same about my review. :-)

There's nothing written in stone about Oliver's journey to becoming Green Arrow on this show because he has no deep relationships with these characters in the comics. Having knowledge about a suit as intricate as the ATOM suit does not mean it will fit you when built to the specifications of another body or that you can use it within minutes, let alone use it well and safely. Barry Allen couldn't even use his powers to run fast and stop and it was his own body. You'll get out of the finale what you like, just as I got out of it was I did. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Modwild

I'll give you an upvote to make you feel brilliant.

Modwild

I'm glad we agree. Fingers crossed Barry whooshes through time and takes Starling with him! :-)

Actually, I said it was the worst episode of the series, so that would be of all three seasons. Thea suited up, Nyssa bent a knee to Malcolm and I don't even want to talk about Felicity. I have hope for Thea. She's earnest and excited to be there. That's a great start.

The more I think of it, the more I could write. The entire SCPD was on the damn with guns pointed at two lunatics with swords (swords!) who were alone par themselves while all hell was breaking loose in their beloved city. Sigh. I cannot believe Nyssa knelt in front to Malcolm instead of taking a sword to his throat. And, please oh please let Season 4 get back to basics and lose the romance novel of it all. That would be a great start.
