I discovered this show late and thanks to a streaming service caught up over the break and it is in my top 5 now. Love the historic costumes, the history (yes it is fiction but I find myself googling all the time to find out how close it is to real history). Looking forward to the new season!!!!
I get so tired of people saying that the love relationship between Oliver and Felicity is a bore, Laurel with Oliver was a bore, and I mean deathly boring too! Laurel makes me sick,she goes with Thea to go kiss Oliver and Felicity's butt getting them to go back to Star City to help them, and then just as soon as they're all face to face, along with Diggle, she flares out right behind Diggle like she's mad or something! She makes me literally sick! I've got something to say, if the writers are that stupid to kill off Felicity? Well they'll be no more show, all the factsis right there in front of all your faces! Because without Emily Bett Rickards/Felicity Smoak there is no show! Just thinking about Oliver and Laurel being back together makes me want to vomit! OMG! Olicity received several awards for this past season all because of their relationship together! So all the writers, and others who get paid that rely on the high ratings from the viewers watching the show would be absolutely, and utterly ridiculous, and just plain stupid to kill Felicity!
Luis Guzman is, as always, excellent. A real standout in the cast.
Didn't watch it yet.
Very accurate review of this episode, hope to read your review of tomorrow's episode
It's one thing for a show to be complicated but this show is getting complicated and silly. I miss the old in total control LIv, the one in charge of the Gladiators. This new one makes to many miss calculations about people she's supposed to know well (Abby, Cyrus, Mellie). Mellie is fun to watch, most of the time, but this continued circle that they keep going around is getting tired. The only fun part was seeing Papa Pope again.
I see the Olitz campagin machine is already doing their bashing rounds. Amazing.
The only thing I didn't like was the "omnipotent terrorist" but that tires me on any show. REALLY like Cryer in this role. I'll take him as a permanent addition. It makes me wonder if Ducky wants to retire. The man looks amazing but he is in his 80s and he may also be tired of this particular gig. I like the improved Tony. But Indid read Gibbs a bit differently. He ALSO seemed way more confident and while maybe not open more relaxed than I've ever seen him. So...yay we killed the Calling plot. I was worried it would be season(s) long. And thumbs up on the changes so far. Sadly Bishop will never be interesting but you can't have it all.
You should read Mellie's character rap sheet again before you throw "Liv" under the bus again. All of it. Not the "poor Mellie" part, but all the rest of what she has never, ever told her husband, including the identity of the kid...oh, and the guy she brought into the White House to be Veep? The one she was sleeping with all those years? Yes, this is a soap opera. Everyone plays the game; everyone takes a turn. That scene with Mellie and Cyrus driving away looked more like the last Scene in "The Graduate" where the couple looks like, "Oh heck -- what have we done." Poor Jake you say? Except he still answers to Daddy Pope and heads B613. Hahaha.
Just got it. As in "crazy like a fox".
