Sci-fi shows have a bad record of low sustainability on regular channels. I may be in the minority(pun intended) but Minority Report has kept my interest so far. Chances are that it will be cancelled due to low ratings. I hope that there is an ending episode so that fans aren't left up in the air. If it was on the SyFy network, it would have had a better chance. Blind Spot, on the other hand, is a ratings hit. Should be around for several seasons. Great pairing with Blacklist, another great show.
I really enjoyed this episode, although it did feel like they crammed a bit too much in. I loved the Olicity interactions and I'm looking forward to seeing more of them as a 'team within the team'. They come across as a mature, adult couple who talk out their problems and genuinely love each other. Watching Oliver embrace his lightness over the darkness will be fun to watch. Can't wait for the Diggle/Oliver bromance to get back on track. And as for the ending - its not Felicity in the grave. She's too popular and well loved and Olicity is a BIG ship in the CW network. Plus her death would undo a lot of Oliver's forward progress. The lighter, funnier Green Arrow will take even longer to appear if the woman he wants to marry dies.
I hope it's not Felicity, too. For one thing, it would be utterly ridiculous to kill off yet another love interest of Oliver. First Sara, then Shado, then Sara again, an honorable mention to McKenna Hall, Isabel Rochev, and then Sara *again*. (I would not want to be associated with this man.)
I am glad that my prediction that the needle in Roman's bag wasn't going to be something bad was correct.This was a heavy episode, anytime it involves a child is heart wrenching.The mom of the little boy was horrible! When she slapped Voight, I found myself hoping he would slap her back. I do not condone that behavior but his team was doing all the could to help find her sons killer and she was giving him to much attitude. I knew it was he mechanic right off the bat.I am sure Halstead and Linsday will get back together soon.I hope Olinksy's daughter smartens up soon and realizes that it is good to have a relationship with him.The scene with Antonio on the phone with his son was great! Oh the feels.We got a sweet moment in the locker room with Ruzek and Burgess, however I still do not think these two will make it down the aisle.Bunny you have made a huge mistake! HUGE. You will not take down Voight and Lindsay will not talk to you again, which is good!
I may have a bad memory but I do not remember anyone saying that Castle was kidnapped and forced to do what he did. I think that you could make a case that he was stopped (forcefully or not) and the need for his participation in the incident in Thailand explained to him and he volunteered. He then asked for his memory to be erased to protect national secrets of the U. S. In what happened.
Well, it seems almost unanimous. The writers or show runners are screwing up a great show. Hopefully they read this column and take this as feedback quickly while there may still be time to get things back on the rails before Castle gets cancelled. We have watched and enjoyed it from the outset but this nonsense with Beckett doing her own thing and freezing out Rick is a bad idea. The plot with Vikram is also hard to follow.
how does Grace get out of the house to Petes dorm?
We watched it on hulu Tues. we started watching Blindspot live. This break up is rediculous . I don't think his dissapearance is the same thing. I'm watching under protest!
What I took away from the Barry/Oliver conversation is that it is Zoom that killed whomever it was that died.I will say it is Felicity! Especially since I just read that this seasons flashbacks are going to introduce a potential love interest for Oliver, so maybe the person in the flash backs will come to Star City after Felicity dies.Or I wonder that since the Flash is having different time dimensions (or whatever the exact term is) if they can some how go back and bring the person that died back.Oh Quentin you and your high horse of morals and hating what Laurel, Oliver et al have been doing since his original return, what you are doing with Damien is way worse!Favorite part of the episode: "Felicity Smoak you have failed this omelet.It was not surprise that Felicity had been helping out the gang.It is interesting that where Oliver and Felicity were living was all bright and cheery and now that they have moved back to Star City is back to darkness.If Layla can get over things I hope Diggle does soon.If Oliver had really changed his mind on proposing, would he have not put the ring back in the box, instead of in the bowl of marbles?I am also pretty sure Felicity made a comment that she was excited to be doing something else at a computer other than tele-conferences. So hasn't she been working for Palmer Tech over the last six months?I know it is part of the whole Arrow Universe but it is funny that no one would be able to tell the Green Arrow is Oliver when you could clearly see his face when he did his speech about Green Arrow on tv.Looking forward to next week.

Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim has confirmed that the death is not a fake-out and that it will be permanent. I highly doubt that Barry's going to attempt to muck with time travel in order to bring this person back. He's seen the dangers time travel can bring - for instance, the vortex of death hovering over Central City.
I think its Thea, basically because Green Arrow's doesn't have a good track record for maintaining a side kick and I think Mia Dearden dies in the comics and that's the closest comic book character she is. And Thea is enough of a loss to Oliver that Barry would come but not necessarily move heaven and high water for to pay his respects (i.e., Felicity or Dig) and it would be the final nail in the coffin of all of 'old' Oliver's motivations (mainly trying to save his sister) and would have further reaching ramifications for the other characters. Like Malcolm would have like no further ties to humanity other than his residual paternal like feelings toward Oliver. This would provide a different feeling of loss for Laurel than when her sister died and Diggle might blame himself more and the end portion of the season could be Oliver trying to save Dig from whatever he is trying to do and weigh that his desires to seek vengeance. But then also, even if the show doesn't really know yet (which is what it sounds like) they gave the audience something to prepare for by making Oliver notice something is up. Even if her death has nothing to do with the Lazarus Pit, its sort of ground work. Basically if anyone hears Colton Haynes made a brief visit to the set...Roy would likely come out of the wood work for that.
I enjoyed the episode also. And yes, I wondered the same thing, are any of the patients they featured going to die? Some obviously do, as they're cleaning buckets of blood up from the ER. It's not that I want it to happen, but if it never happens, then there's never going to be any suspense. I think they spend just the right amount of time letting us get to the know the characters. I like the emphasis on the cases and medicine, and I like learning just a bit about them each time.
