I feel like my recording cut off so much that I missed a lot of this episode (the thing I'm most annoyed with is a scene I did see and didn't understand that the twins were Gaveston's sisters). But, what I liked is that I haven't really been able to get a good read on Milius and now I feel comfortable that he was actually sort of way truthful in who he was this episode. He recognizes the limits to where he can go in this world, but he's found a place where he can basically operate as a full lord and I think he sees a partner in Lady Love. Like, I almost envision that he has not plans for a long life for Baron Pryce, just long enough to knock her up and then he can meet with an unfortunate accident and they can just continue on. I'm a little baffled why Gaveston wants Ventishire. I mean, it sounds like he is in debt and is running from it, but from what I gathered from Milius and Pryce's previous conversations, Ventishire is actually massively in debt regardless of the taxes they levy, which might not be apparent with a cursory look, but if you dig deeper. It must have some geographical significance. I am still a little baffled over Wilkes, and its kind of me also being baffled by Anorah and whether they are good guys or not. If they are good guys, then Petra in vision form is likely a temptation for Wilkes to follow a bad path (I mean, they did kill Petra in the first place). I actually think the show might benefit from a flashback to exactly who Wilkes' was before the opening battle scene. The guy no one actually knows. I think I might get annoyed at the rest of the guys thinking Wilkes is delaying, they were all the ones who were holding him back at the beginning.
I've been hoping for Olicity to "drop dead" for about a year now.. didn't mean it literally though. Joking aside, I would not mind at all if it was Felicity, but my money is on Quentin. Just going by simple elimination. All the characters but those two are already squared away in other shows. Plus the relevation we got about Quentin just screams "redemption and sacrifice arc" to me.
“It's not a fake-out...That's not how we roll.”Umm:-Everyone thought Oli died in his fight with Ra's.-All of Starling City except for the gang thinks Roy ("The arrow") was stabbed to death.-Thea did die but came back with the help of Lazarous Pit-We know Sara is coming back the same way to become the white canary-Some of thought Malcolm died a few seasons ago but he came back too THAT'S EXACTLY HOW YOU ROLL!
I'm pretty sure he was referring to faking out the audience, not the other characters. In other words, they aren't going to show viewers this grave and then say, "Haha, just kidding. Not actually dead after all!".
I was not fan of this episode too many holes in the episode. Bishop is stupid well did a stupid thing by going in without backup and she forgot her phone I said the same thing on Blue Bloods with Danny when he went into a house with out back up

More stupid stuff. Another ep Im probably going to tune out of. Hardly any Caskett. When they arent even in the promo not a good sign. Going from bad to worse.
Got that right Vikki and , he says no greater betrayel in a marriage than a lie. So that show me the writers really are slapping us in the face saying Castle can't figure out she is lying. Definitley bad to worse. Wonder if the writers and stars see these round tables and if they even care.
Showrunners told us in their 1st interview they didnt care what fans thought.
Yes they did say that. They also said fans should stick around to see where they are headed that doesn't seem to be working to well. Fans aren't interested in where they are going dropping in ratings maybe a mid season cancellation.
Oh what an episode!!! I couldnt wiat for it to start now i am wishing we are months ahead just so i would know what really happened! I am so sceptical about Damien Darhk's mystical powers and how they are going to tie it into the Arrow premise. C'mon wasn't it suppose to be the fairly normal show? But now with metas and mystics let no one dare mention Arrow and normal again. Well guess i hvae to shrug it offer cause it looks like its really happening. Damien's is one villain that i am sure i wouldn't give the benefit of the doubt like i gave to Ra's Malcolm and Slade. This dude is pure and pure evil! But he is awesome at it though, so i will enjoy a change of seeing a villain as evil to the core as him. Now that headstone, i doubt it's Quentin's though cause i really don't see anyway that Oliver will ever be in the place again with Lance where he will be so affected by his death. Quentin has been on his back for so long that yeah Oliver likes taking responsibility for anything and everything but i just can't see him being that affected by Lance's death. I don't think the writiers will put Thea on death's door again and am sure it being Felicity is kinda the most obvious option they want us to point at which am sure in my book makes it the least likely. So i am going with it being Laurel or Dig's grave. As for Oliver feeling the need to kill a particular someone? Its open season, it can be anyone! Awesome episode though, and it also promises to be an awesome season.
Pretense of realism sort of went out the door with the Lazarus Pit, so I'm going to accept Damien Darhk's magic. Plus, Constantine will be showing up soon... Damien Darhk is definitely a different sort of villain than Malcolm, Slade, or even R'as Al Ghul. Darhk would kick a puppy and then cut out its entrails just because he could. He does evil things just because he can. And boy, is Neal McDonough having fun with the role!

Oh lol i know right?
Can we bear yet another marriage breaking up? Callie x2, Hunt, Karev all got divorced. Is there a character who hasn't had some sort of relationship break down at some stage? Meredith, Altman and Webber all widowed. So perhaps Kepner may escape the break up cos GA fans are still too tender from Derek being killed off
ARROW S4E1 GREEN ARROW: Likes: 1. The Green Arrow is born. Oliver knows that the fire of protecting the city is always in him and he can never abandon that mission. And his new suit is fantastic! 2. Damien Darkh. Good villain from what we have seen thus far. His no nonsense approach to things makes for wonderful TV. And great that he is introduced right out of the gates without half or two thirds of the season gone by before introducing him. 3. Fantastic fight scenes, especially with Oliver vs Darkh and Laurel, Red Arrow/Thea. Oliver in his first meeting with Darkh had his but handed to him and hopefully he will be better prepared for their next encounter. Glad to see the writers get on the ball and have Thea show some real fighting skills and take out numerous bad guys. The only unbelievable part is her lifting a grown man with one arm and choke slamming him on pallet like she was Ra's Al Ghul or someone. Nah, that didn't work for me. But otherwise, good stuff. Laurel shines as always as canary, but we did see her and Thea get overpowered at times just to remind the viewers that they are still women with limited physical capabilities 4. Captain Lance being in league with Damien Darkh. Great plot twist. But now that I think about it you had to see it coming because Darkh simply walked into a city leadership meeting, make threats, and walk out with Capt. Lance do nothing about it. Since when would Lance or any other cop have stood down with a breach of security like that taking place? 5. Darkness in Thea due to Lazarus Pit. Great to include this because it also sets the stage for a conflict for control of Thea's soul. Will she be every bit as dark as Oliver? All in all, it was a solid episode with plenty for us Arrow fans to chew on. I therefore rate Arrow, S4E1 Green Arrow as 4.00 stars out of 5.00.
The Green Arrow is born! They didn't take long for the evolution from The Arrow to Green Arrow. And the suit fits well, more in line with keeping with the comics. Overall, the season four premiere was good, although it had its misses as well as hits. My review of Arrow S4E1 Green Arrow, is as follows: Dislikes: 1. Team Arrow. For all their lack of experience, firepower, and skill and not being able to catch the "Ghosts" of Damien Darkh, who does Laurel and Thea run to for help? Oliver Queen. And when he gives them the leadership and the direction that they lack what is their reaction? They give Oliver the finger and make him feel like an outsider in a crusade that he started. 2. John Diggle. I officially hate the Diggle character and hope that it is his gravesite that Oliver visits in the end. He, above all, should understand Oliver the best, more so than anyone else. If Lyla can get over Oliver Kidnapping her, (and might I add he didn't harm a hair on her head) then surely Diggle should realize that Oliver made a tactical move and this is something he should get over. 3. Oliver having drinks with Amanda Waller like they are old drinking buddies or something. Really? How stupid can Oliver Queen be at times? That flashback scene alone made me want Amanda to have Oliver gutted and left for dead, which in a sense she did because she took him back to the Island. Why Oliver would have gone anywhere with Waller willingly I have no idea. I knew from that point he would be drugged and dragged off back to the Island or somewhere else for another mission. 4. Where is Ray and as it has been pointed out no one seems to care he is no longer among the living, (as far as anyone can tell) 5. NO MALCOLM MERLYN, NOT EVEN A CAMEO OF HE AND NYSSA FIGHTING FOR CONTROL OF THE LEAGUE OR HE HAVING DISPATCHED SPIES TO STAR CITY TO KEEP TABS ON TEAM ARROW/DAMIEN DARKH etc.!!!
Elena,My "Dad" and Nyssa being at odds with each other? That is as it should be! Diggle I want to shoot myself. Wish Oliver had run him through during Season 3 Episode 21 swordfight in Al Sahir. I believe Malcolm and Nyssa appear in episode 3, The Restoration. That is when Laurel asks Nyssa to allow Sara's body to be put in the Lazarus Pit and Nyssa initially says no. Should be a barnburner!
Diggle really did seam annoying. And I read one of the producers interview saying that Nyssa and Malcolm will make an appearance sometime and Nyssa will not be happy about Malcolm's leadership.
I have loved this show since the beginning. There were some things I didn't like but not enough to make me leave. I hated that those of us that wanted a beautiful wedding with of all their friends and family there, were robbed of it. Anyway when Kate walked out the door and left Castle, I left too. I did not watch the 3rd episode. Heck I didn't even record it. I knew I would never want to watch it. What used to be a fun show with great chemistry between Kate and Rick has now all been lost with her leaving him. For me you can't get that back. I may start watching again after the first of next year, it just depends on what has happened since then. I don't agree with what Lanie said. Castle was forcibly kidnapped and Beckett left voluntarily. It's almost like a spouse saying you "cheated on me", and the other spouse saying, "well so did you when you were raped".
I stopped watching as well. I know a few other people that aren't watching any more. There is no reason for the writers to have had her leave with no explanation. She should have given castle the opportunity to make the decision to go through this with her or not. If they make this last a few more episodes they will lose a lot more fans. Rediculous decision to follow suit with how other shows deal with their characters in a relationship. I thought castle was different.
