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.
I fairly enjoyed the episode! I mean not in the rape and so, but in the set up and the resolution. Was the rape necessary? I don't think so! Did it gave the show more edge and suspense! Yes. Do I want to know what to happens next of course. But again I wouldn't mess with this part of history. Sean Teale looks a lot like Paul Wesley to me. Him getting played by Mary was like watching Elena playing with Stefan in S01-03.

Thumbs up for this RT! Good work!1.Favorite part?Let's say the battle between Barry and Oliver. It was really well done, the set up, effects, the resolution. Besides that the Wells scenes, Diggle's confusion, The Baitlin scene and of course the training where great as well.2,Task Force?Eddie will finally get some screen time. Think he got least focus for now and this I think will put him on his path to the path of the RFlash. What it will mean for Barry? He will start to apply the things Oliver thought him, cause Eddie is won't give up or forget this.3.Flarrow moments`?I was a bit of by Oliver's attitude at the beginning. I mean it's Barry why would he be so harsh toward that adorkable guy. But I thing Oliver was a bit intimidated by B's powers and it was nice to see him open up to Barry. Barry's training was interesting as well and I love how that it was Oliver who thought him. 4.Baby Arrow!I'm so frustrated that they pushed this story aside. It would help Oliver's character development so much. Don't know why your so against it Carissa!? Oliver needs some happiness and that kid could be his saving stone. He needs it and when the Ra danger passes this season, it will be nice for Oliver to get to know him in season 4.5.Did I miss something?No. Really no. I loved every single part of it. They made everyone interact with each other and it was really a great episode. BTW Iris fangirling over Oliver was hilarious. 6.Personal outburst. Ask my brother what happens when I come home hungry. It's like Terminator entered the house.
Jack's partner was promoted Series regular 2-3 weeks ago. So not him either. Daniel seems like a possible choice. Especially with Joshua stating he wanted out last season. Sad I will miss that evil bastard.
