Great RT for a Great Episode!1. Sara's killer?I have to say I was surprised it was Thea but it gave great Villainous dimension to Malcolm. Looking from this perspective every move he made since S02 was connected to Oliver taking out Ra for him. Of course Thea vs Laurel is bond to happen now and I hope they won't put it under a rug and make it great fight. I know Thea isn't responsible for killing Sara but Laurel needs to let her rage free and it should be quiet fun. 2.Did Oliver do the right thing?Thea has paid enough for the sins of her parents! From Robert's to Malcolm's action. Oliver couldn't let the trend continue! Nyssa and Ra probably wouldn't kill her but cut of her hands-arms or something as retribution! No matter what Oliver couldn't risk anything happen to Thea. Would there be a better solution probably! But come on you do live-death work in a 48 hour span. 3. Ray?I hoped Ray would be much much more! Him being driven by the death of a loved one is so Oliver Queen of him. I hoped my "working for ARGUS theory" would've kicked in, but no they went a different road. I though liked the whole he compressed the technology into small small pieces and put them together.4.Ra's al 'Ghul!I had my doubts! I won't lie! Matt Nable a complete stranger was quite the turn off, I hoped for a bigger name to attract viewers. I have to say Matt nailed it. He was so convinced by his performance so I would cross the street upon seeing him. I like how driven, powerful and calm he was. 5.Malcolm Merlyn!I love hating him. He is a mastermind, a bit gaga mastermind but still a mastermind. He plays his cards right and it seems like he doesn't have any conscious. Of course I want for him to pay for all his sins but let's wait and see what the future brings.A spoilery interview revealed JB was at the location of the fight and shot some scenes so its possible that he is the one to rescue Oliver. Should be quite interesting.6. Season 3B?The raise of Thea and Laurel! These girls are fairly neglected and need to resurface. I hope Oliver coming back stronger than ever and enjoying the 2nd fall out between Oliver and Ra.
Great Interview Jim!Just one remark about Colin's statement that Hook is more given to Emma and their relationship. I think it's just the simple fact that Rumple knows Belle will forgive him, while Hook knows he only got once chance with Emma. She won't forgive him so easily or at all.I look forward to the ms finale tonight! Think Hook might have some hook up or heartbreak with Maleficent! Would be neat to see Emma fight against her for Hooks "heart".Elsewhere I need a double date between Captain Swan and Outlaw Queen to happen.
Love the RT, cause no one has a clue what the show has in store for us. They made a really big move and now have to justify it. Should be quite intense when the show returns. I think Wells is someone else, who came back from the future and replaced the real Wells so he and the Rlash could execute a plan with Barry, The only strange thing was the Rlash saying Nora Allen had to die, this gives me the idea Barry tried to stop it by coming back from the future. It will hard be for the writers to tell 2 stories at the same time, I assume they will flashback to the parallel universe aka the stuff that changed before fake/future Wells and Rlash interfered.
Don't worry about the ranting! We're here to discuss! The show did get themselves into a questionable place, they pushed to far with the Narcisse story and the resolution was underwhelming. I hope they will come back to telling the story in a different way. They can come back from this just with a little push. ;-)
The episode had some really good stuff and some quite not so good stuff. Adelaide Kane nailed it. I mean the writers did a great job as well but Adelaide executed this like no other. The small details really made this episode big for her.I think Mary leaving Francis is more about the perception she has of herself, being that ideal Queen and being pure and only Franics woman. I don't give to much into the story with Conde cause she likes him cause he is so honest and truth to himself but I just wait to see his brother start playing with him Mary will be the one to put him behind bars (spoilers Conde gets arrested gor going after the crown and will be realised after Francis death by Catherine, at least that is how it goes historically). This will just make Mary a better Queen, she'll learn to trust no one.Meanwhile I disagree with your thoughts on Narcisse. We should remember he is a big catholic and is driven by his faith. The consequences of his actions made him fear the wrath of the goods. Either way I'm just glad we get to keep Craig Parker he's done a great job here.I am dissapointed by tge Greer story! Last week it was so interesting and instead of digging into the connection between Castleroy and Greer and Greer and Mary they pushed Leith unecessary into the mix.

So I loved special parts of the episode, like the Rlash story and the Wells reveals. But the Baris story and Raitlin we so uniteresting. I look forward for Malese Jow entering Central City and I hope a bit of happiness for Barry.I was bumped by the Wells reveal! Didn't expect it at all.One thing got me especially curious!!!! The Rlash said Nora Allen had to die that night and Cisco said there was another blur there the night she died. I assume Barry came back from the future and tired to stop his mother from dying but was stopped by the Rlash cause he couldn't change history that much. On the other side Wells seems more and more to fit the Hunter Zolomon pattern but who knows what the writers have in store for us.
Your making this rainy boring Tuesday much more tolerable. I hope they raise the stakes in Thursday's MS finale! I mean they prepped the stage for a interesting episode. AND please let Bonnie come back. Think Kai will abduct Elena as a payback after Damon and Alaric save the Parkers.
1. Did it live up to my expectations?-Yes. Looking at it now it was much harder, storywise to make the crossover happen than I initially thought. Give the episode meaning, action and keep it interesting enough was a hard task and the emotional level they reached was just awesome. I mean the Ollie vs Barry moments and the 4 Misarables pounding in Verdant gave all the characters something to learn from.2.Advices?-Truth to be told Barry hit a nerve there and Oliver should stop looking at him like at an anti-hero and enjoy the life he is living.3.Permanent transfer?-Looking at their chemistry now, it's a huge shame that Barry got his spin off so soon. It would've been better if he stayed a season in Starling city and moved later back to Central city. His interactions with the group are quite strong and I fairly enjoy them.4. ARGUS involvement!I think this was just enough of ARGUS in one ep, at least until they become the villains. I like Lyla and more of her is always good.5. What I missed?- I agree with Carissa, more of Laurel. Would be interesting to see her eye role on Cisco's comments. But maybe in the feature Laurel can go and visit her Mom in Central city and encounter Team Flash as Canary. - Besides that it was fine, maybe a Thea-Barry moment could be interesting as well.
Its strange that they choose to kill the only character that got some progress in the last couple of eps. I know they need to boost their ratings but this is an awful way to do it. Just doesn't feel right. Let's see what the next year will bring to Us.
Sooooo! It was a great episode, but Daniel hadn't to die! I don't think it served the story. Daniel went through so much and at moments I couldn't be mad at him for choosing the evil way cause that is the only thing he was raised to do. I'm still a Damily / much hotter than Jacily!But from the possible choices he was the only logic one besides Margaux. She is quite useless, but maybe she'll get some space to shine later. The fight between Emily and that other chick was bad ass. Love it! Can't wait for the consequences of her dying! Revenge finally got good again.
