They've told all the French court stories they've had. U saw the mess they made in S02 and forcing the Conde story on and they did that to prolong Francis stay at court. Yes Mary was her happiest at the French Court but Mary's life is a tragic story and the writers wanna tell all of it. Overall I never was a big fan of Francis he had some great moments but he was always a 2ndary character to me. So I'm personally looking forward to see how the show will handle the next bunch of episodes.
I was never really invedsted in Mary's love life, the show was always weak while focusing on that. The show reaches its peak by court action, fashion choices(that Funeral was fing beautiful, STUNNING) and perfornances delivered by Adelaide and Megan (and Rachel now). Mary's life really began after Franics death than it got really entertaining, challenging and powerful. Can't wait to see her meet Darnley.

I thought it was a good episode, but from the moment Zoom appeared it was amazing. I loved the light and funny moments prior to the beat down, it was a nice contrast and made Zoom even more terrifying. I really hope that Barry gets stucked on E2 after midseason and explores that world. Dead Oliver? We need to know what is going on with the other TA members. *_* Dr Light is out and probably in hiding? I hopr she meets up with Wally, that would be a neat trick. ^_^
On point review as always Carissa. I really enjoyed the episode. Constantine was on point and I'm really happy with the conclusion Laurel and Oliver got. I hope the progress will be shown in the show further along. I agree on Thea, she has matured so beautifully. Willa's acting this season is on a whole other level. Dig and Lance interacted perfectly, I hope we get more of that further along.
I agree with all your points, but why under 4 rating. I thought it was much better than last week but that is just my pov. Oliver screaming at Lance was major, so well written and executed. The show rebounded nicely from that S3B mess.
I have to stop by the Flash RT a bit later, didn't have time to read over the weekend. I expect the Flashbacks to step up a bit and push Oliver to his quest and decision to become the Arrow. So I hope after all this training we get a bit more focus on the agenda not the training. Also Bratva should be around any corner now. ^^
I missed these RTs. Love all these discussions.1. Expectations! Honestly it upped my. I was expecting a good start but this episode really nailed it. It was opened well paced and just mind blowing at the end.2. Team DynamicsIt was good! I liked the lighter happier Oliver, his different approach really gave the whole episode a different dimension. I agree with Carissa a bit more of Olicityless Team Arrow would be nice. But here is for hoping it happens further along.3. Damien Darhk!He killed it. I adore Neal and he proved to be this devious bad a*s just upping all the previous Big Bads.4. Lance! I wasn't surprised, he is frustrated. Loosing Sara a second time took all his fate. Lets see if he regains it upon Sara's return.5. Did I miss skmething?The Canary cry. Such a powerful weapon barely used. We need more of it. 6. Who is dying? My guess is Oliver's Baby Mommy. Prime suspects for who Oliver wants to kill Lance or Papa Smoak P.S. How did U forget to mention the Lian Yu twist in the Fbs? I certainlu didn't saw that coming.
I foubd it to be an inprovement to last year's premiere and to last year's second half of the season overall. It had a lot of dynamic, nicely paced and an overall lighter approach. U can't erase the darkness out of this type of show but you can add up light, big positive emotions. They promissed a lighter season but they have to pay the price for bringing Sara back via LP in a couple of weeks. I love Sara but hate the thought of resurrecting her, cause it erases all stakes. That dead in the Family seems to be a heavy one but I've got a feeling and it's a decoy. It will be Oliver's Baby Mama who bites the dust and it will be Lances fault making Oliver go after him. Overall looking forward to the whole season in general but first next week should be great with Anarky, Mr Terrific and JerI Ryan stopping by.
Thank U Carissa for an amazing review! U hit every note and translated to "paper" all the feels I had about this episode. The Flash really delivered with this premiere and made me so exciting about future episodes. I had so strong Snowbarry feels, loved their scenes together. They share some amazing chemistry and I can't wait for future stories. It was nice to see Joe and Barry mirror each other during the last solo scene, with them having their hands in their pockets when they feel awkward. They are Father and Son. ^^KADIMA!
I'm not that pissed about the memory loss. They do a great job by doing the 2 timelines and I believe they will regain the memories sooner than thought. Overall a good episode and brilliant performance by JenMo. She rocked every single minute of it. It is neat to see Emma interact with EF Rumple, 2nd time after the S03 finale. I love everytime Regina calls Hook Guyliner, adorable. I hope for a bunch more scenes between them.
