Arrow Round Table: The Long Con

Great RT as always. Missed to comment on the last couple ones but always read them through.
1. Broken
I really hoped he was broken the road back would be intense and more memorable. But like everything this season the writers rushed this development and reveal. I was annoyed by Ollie's self-righteous attitude. I know he has the best intentions but he should've reacted different towards Diggle.
2. Biggest impression?
The father-daughter scene. I semi-like Ra's having a soul and being merciful towards Nyssa. He lost so much and he couldn't bare Nyssa's life on his soul. So that was really nice. Tatsu killing Maseo was nice as well, she really gifted him peace.
3. Felicity fighting?
I get her being there, but where is the logic leaving her without a weapon, knife, bomb or gun? Anything? The tablet scene was really funny.
4. The Wedding?
Lovely ceremony, would've been better if the bride and groom didn't look like someone killed their childhood pet. Shame it didn't end like VD's wedding.
5. The Finale?
I really have no clue what to expect. Al Sahim was a great episode, this one was meh. I hope the show won't try to hard and that the flow will feel natural and that the storytelling will be believable and enjoyable. And please without whiny Felicity scenes, there were to many this week.

I wouldn't be surprised if Ravi will turn into Were-Rat. I read a bit into the iZombie mythology and there a quite a few beings in the comics. Lets see how much they will dip into it this season.

I'm a big RS fan as well. I like her since her Birds od Prey days. I like the style they choose for her and can't wait to see her play off against Catherine and Mary.
A Tabula Rasa is just what we need! I just hope that we won't have to wait till summer 2016 for S03.

Seems like we got the same vibe from the episode, except the Menage a trois (but that is probably cause of me).
I can't wait to see Elizabeth enter the show, them ending this whole mess with Conde and give us a clean slate for S03.

Was I the only one stunned by the quality of this episode? What a change of pace, dynamic and storytelling!!! Just amazing, it started very slow but I started to enjoy it as soon as Conde tried to abduct Mary. Really well crafted episode. Bash overpowering Kenna's new beau was great, was I the only one expecting a threesome at any point? If not with Red head beau, than with crazy forest chick ?
Back to the topic, I completely agree that Mary is playing Conde and that was my first thought when she even appeared at his tent.
I adore when Catherine is diabolic, she playing against Narcisse was just brilliant. Overall I really liked the writing and choice of words. Next week should be funny. Hoping for viewers to return.

1. Reverse Roles?
- Hook is probably number 1 on my list, as he is neither good or bad.
- But this whole story reminds me like the Charmed alternate universe episode. U really can't escape from who U are as Cole and Phoebe couldn't escape their faith I see characters reverse to their old patterns as no book can change someones core.
2. Lily and Maleficent - I wouldn't mind some for them to stick around if they'll have some purpose, but as said there are to many characters fighting for a solid story and they played their part in setting up those finale 2 hours of the season. 3. Zelena and motherhood!
- I think a hilarious spin off comedy could be made out of this. I hope Rebecca gets regular status next year and we see so much more of her. She is so tremendous as th WW and I just want to see what happens. She drew a nice parallel between Regina and Cora, but what will she do when she has her own child with a men who doesn't love her. Should be interesting.
4. Regina's happy ending.
I think a big part of Regina evolving and growing as a character is realizing that nothing can be perfect in live. I think she realized the issue and embraced what she got. 5. What I didn't like`?
Hmmm nothing really! It was a good episode. What I maybe missed is Zelena meeting Cora? I can't believe that didn't happen earlier! Hope we get that in S05.
6. Favorite scene
The mother daughter scene between Male and Lily. It had everything. 2nd The finale scene between Zelena, Regina and Cora.

Honestly I loved it. The show stayed truth to the characters and I cherish that. One thing I was quite surprised is that I liked Cornell at the end. She was so obnoxious early on but at this point she killed it, I adore her. I also liked that the show tried to sent a message with Abby's state of mind and that killers are getting younger every year and that we should do more about it.
The killer reveal being predictable was a bit of a throw of but as said the show stayed truth to the characters and I think it payed off in a really compelling way.

Totally and it's a shame cause they have that simple chemistry that just works so well on screen. I like Bash with Kenna and him sharing to many scenes with Mary would probably be odd, but they should've found a way to balance it out.
At the end I really didn't expect Bash to appear in the episode not to mention he shared a scene with Mary.

It was a solid episode. Finally the Conde story is coming to an end. The show pretty much derailed after a quite strong midseason. All the stories were overlapping and it was a bit to much.
Claude and Leith both have to go next season. They are just filling up empty space.
Mary is so . . . ! I could understand her backing up Conde until next week, but since he married Elizabeth she should've turned on him. I understand he is an emotional touch stone but really this is pushing it to far. I liked the scene between Bash and Mary, they understand each other on a simple way, where she isn't a Queen.
I'm glad Greer chose herself and her stability. This show was about women embracing their strength and we finally got it.
Kenna and Rosemound are hot together but Benna is way better.

1. Olicity sex!
I'm a fan of their chemistry and the writing for them is so terrible this season. I just can't! Than this episode happened and they come back with such a strong and beautifully written scene, it felt quite organic to me. Felicity realizing that she will most certainly lose him was the trigger for her to go there and I found it really moving.
2. Team Arrow?
As we would say in Serbia, there is no winter for them! They have Nyssa a really strong replacement, who is way hotter if U ask me. It's a lot like post mid-season but also totally different. They need to take charge of their life, they have to learn to trust themselves more and move out of Oliver's shadow.
3. Maseo/Sarab
He is becoming so bland to me. I loved Dig stepping up in their scene but I can't see Maseo survive past the season. His motivations and everything around is so vague, I got to the point where I really don't care.
4. Lazarus Pit and Thea?
I think Thea will start having episodes with loosing her identity and stuff. I'm just glad she was breathing so this won't be a way to bring Sara back.
5. S03 Finale!
I expect the situation between Oliver and Ra's to escalate and resolve. At the end of the Season Oliver has to be happy with who he is and not with who everyone expects him to be. I hope for some Lance and him redeem himself and Oliver's son and his mother to sneak into Starling in those finale moments.
