I agree this was underwhelming. Yes Backstrom is supposed to be deplorable but then the audience can't possibly connect with him on any level - I don't expect the show to last past it's initial run.
My only problem is that there is not and never has been a private in the Navy. This is major. The victim may have been a private but he was probably in the Marines - and never tell a Marine he is in the Navy.
The real tragedy is they (mostly Plec) go so involved in caving into the shippers that they lost interest in the more fascinating characters Alaric, Matt, even Tyler. I imagine the the entire 7th season will consist with Elena and Damon in bed with light coming from behind.
I agree with Carissa that this was a much needed episode and resolved tons of plot lines. It really was needed in Oliver's journey to Green Arrow that he appreciate his team as they are still developing. Roy and Thea have really matured since season 2 episodes 8 & 9 (and where we last saw Sin). And no, fanboys, I don't think that Ollie and Thea will have tea with Slade while on the Island.
You forgot Bellamy and Raven came thru and iced (fried) the evil doctor. Plus the wimps fought back!
This was an episode I have been looking forward to and it did not disappoint. The whole situation with Firestorm is incredibly complex as it could be it will take probably the rest of the season to come to some kind of resolution. The whole thing with Cisco finding out that it it was an adult Barry that was one of the participants was epic. I loved the Barry/Linda awkward dating scenario - and I agree that they make a normal couple much better than with Iris. Thank God that the Flash doesn't have to put up with shippers too much except Roxy on Afterbuzz who sees sex between every male/female possible combo. There was real poignance between Ronnie and Caitlan's situation.
This was an excellent episode! I loved how Rebekah called out Klaus for being an ass. I truly hope we keep Kol - Julie Plec has been notorious for randomly killing off characters and destroying shows i.e TVD. In her interviews she comes across as smug and I can kill anybody off I want at a whim. The rest of the episode was really good the mythos of magic with the baby, and the werewolves was spot on.
I think you boys are a little too eager for the Lazarus pit. Come on why would Ra's put Oliver in the pit? I see too many fanboys wanting them to use the PIT to resurrect Tommy - why not Moira? We could undo all the deaths that have happened before and as Henry said they could start over again maybe with a new cast and then do Green Arrow and to hell with all the character development.
That's also true of Latin "Church Latin" isn't how the Romans pronounced it. How do you know that Wesen is mispronounced? I can't find it in a German dictionary and yet you assume it is pronounced incorrectly. You ARE aware of the real Grimms who did an analysis of the evolution German from Old High German to modern German with all the vowel shifts and consonant mutations?

Which languages are they mangling? French, German, Dutch, Spanish, Latin or Wesen?Wow you are far more advanced than me I can pick up the Spanish and German. If the Wesen bothers you did it occur that they are saying some of the names the way German and the other languages were pronounced centuries ago?
