Arrow Round Table: Raylicity FTW!

I think it's a tomato tom-ah-to type of thing. I noticed Nanda Parbat being pronounced the same two ways people pronounce aunt, as well -- ant and awnt, nanda and nawnda. Meh. ;-)

Thanks for the background. I'll do some reading on the Batman side of things. By the way, I don't think Ra's is a good guy, per se, but that he has a code of honor that he lives by. It may not be the code others live by, but it counts for something. I'm not sure the same can be said for Malcolm.

Thanks Marguerite. I was kinda shocked at the comments, to be honest. Obviously, I loved the finale. I couldn't have asked for more. All of the scenes with Abby and Jake blew me away. He didn't give up on her even when she was pushing him away. Awww. I was crying. Oh well. Maybe we see things differently. :-)

Modwild

Mind you, I won't be upset watching that scene, either. I'm all for pretty people getting together. I doubt it will be a Season 3 thing, though. I'm thinking it's a longer term bet. I also see Ray finishing his suit a little differently, though. She's been helping him so he's kind of excited to show it off to her, I think.

Modwild

Because I'm perpetually on the opposite page. I'll never match up. :-)

I'm so glad you chimed in. You covered so much so well! I've lost sight of the fact Malcolm seems to have had no reason to kill Sara. I even lost sight of the fact I lost sight of it. Talk about illogical! Thanks for the reminder. Your idea of the past and present converging would work really well, and I'd especially like to see more of Andy Diggle. I hope you'll weigh in more often.

It might seem easy to cover a show five years straight for 22 episodes a year, but it's challenging. Talking about the sweeping saga of Blue Bloods works great if you're checking in on it once or twice a season, but weekly it makes sense to examine the story through the characters, which is also the way the writers have chosen to tell it. Viewers invest in the Reagan family and their struggles and triumphs, while also recognizing they represent the many who work on behalf of the city. When one person is always the hero, it starts to feel a little too Die Hard and less everyday hero. :-)

No. I'm not wondering if Iris investigating STAR Labs is right. The question is referring to the episode and Ronnie Raymond. Outing Ronnie to get to Harrison Wells will not hurt anyone but Ronnie and Caitlin, as well as Martin and his wife and others. Wells would not be hurt. He'd find a way to save face, as he did with the press conference. You keep talking about the meta humans as if they're a sweet bunch. Yes, they were created by Wells. That is not good. However, humans deal with them with the likes of General Eiling. Also not good. Exposing innocents to the likes of Eiling, and there will be another to take his place, I'm sure, isn't good. What Joe is doing has potential to expose wells and they can stop him from the inside. The outside world isn't equipped to handle what happened. Eiling is how the outside world handled it. He was atrocious and, at this point, worse than the man who created the metas in the first place. Keeping them alive and sanctioned in a special prison is better than forcing them to be killing machines or whatever else the government would have in store. Earth. What lives would exposing Ronnie save, exactly?

I don't criticize "the writers" because I work under the assumption that everybody knows that the characters, the plot, the entire show is a figment of the writers, the producers, the directors...all of their imaginations. They're fictional characters and, as such, do not exist without someone writing lines for them. Therefore, I speak about the characters as if they're people because it's a lot more fun in the context of the conversation. People are allowed to find a fictional character annoying. Honestly, they can even hate her. It means nothing in the overall scheme of things. I didn't make the Grodd comment, but I'm not going to stop someone else from making it either. It's a comment about a fictional character. Keep things in perspective. As for the meta humans being locked up bit, they can escape conventional prisons. They would likely be killed if confronted and caught (which would be unlikely) by the army (who is called in under these circumstances...see General Eiling). So the argument about their protection makes no sense at all. They kill. They maim. They love doing it. The police can't catch them. How would the traditional justice deal with them? They wouldn't. Eiling was the answer. In is case, Wells was the better option. Yep. Tis true. There were four other questions on the table that were, frankly, a hell of a lot more interesting in the scope of The Flash. Take a break and talk about them for a while.

Misogyny and sexism? I'm a woman. This has nothing to do with her being a woman. The story isn't even hers. It belongs to Mason. I also do not hate Iris. However, your argument is ridiculous. Nobody is arguing her right to investigate. We're asking if it IS right, not A right. The question wasn't about STAR Labs, but about using others as evidence.
