Brilliant direction by paul wesley!This episode was so well-written & acted,i was really surprised.I liked all the scenes-especially those between dalaric,even delena,wonder twins & kai-elena conversation.Kai is a fantastic villain,probably the best they've brought on this show after kat & klaus.Although i don't like enzo's stalker-ish behaviour,i have to say i want to see what is the plan here in the long-term.The caroline-liz moments were so well portrayed & emotional.That final 2 mins was really gut-wrenching & heartbreaking!Can't wait for the next episode-The merger event is happening!!

You literally gave caroline's mother cancer to push her into stefan's arms but oh noooo, this ship is totally organic right? It's like you people almost don't want to be employable post-TVD. And tone down on the absurd on-the-nose exposition in every episode. You don't need to tell me what's happening plotwise right before it happens like they do on the originals. I have a brain and know how to follow a semi cohesive narrative.
I saw the episode a bit differently. Felicity didn't quit her day job, she's still working at Palmer Technology. What she did is refuse to work on Ray's A.T.O.M. suit because she didn't want "to help [him] commit suicide". The rest of the job she's still doing. Ray really has no idea what he's getting into, and Felicity can't tell him without revealing she works with the Arrow. It was a nice moment, Ray telling Felicity it's going to be okay because the Arrow and his partner are out there fighting every night. She did let Brick get away with the info, but Diggle and Roy were getting their asses kicked. Diggle thought they could have won; Felicity, watching on camera, disagreed and thought they were going to get killed too. She may have been right, or it may have been her post traumatic stress talking. Diggle had been thinking for a while that Oliver was dead and Roy was thinking that way too. They had had more time to process what was going on, and yet even Diggle quit the Team at the end, or close enough to it, when he told Laurel that he had no idea what was going to happen next. Presumably, that's why Laurel put on Sara's gear, because no one else was going to do it. I love Diggle refusing to wear the too-tight Arrow costume. I think they had to show us that Oliver was still alive, in case viewers stopped watching next week.
i agree totally with all except the following. its not great but its not near the worst. the rest are definitely the worst.
Out of all the people Kai could have kindnapped, did it have to be Elena?? I'm so over the damsel in distress storyline. He could have kidnapped Alaric or Stefan. Damon cares about them too.
Kai barely knows Damon. I'm sure he doesn't know how much he really cares about them. But he was certain of his feelings for Elena as that's all he would talk about when they were trapped.
Can't wait to see what happens with this other label and just what Jamal is going to do..........
I'm liking it..............but I think all the references to the President and Lucious CALLING him on the phone of all things was way over the top............
I haven't read through all the comments yet so, if this show has already been referenced, my apologies. Mulaney was completely unwatchable. My brother and myself caught his stand up and couldn't wait to see his show. My brother called me 5 minutes into the premier with a wtf is this garbage and I had already changed the channel.
Just watched all three episodes........ Fell right in hook, line and sinker................ One thing...........what is with Terrence Howards hair in this show???
Great finale. We definitely thought that either Gabe or Tristan deserved to win based on their overall performance during the entire season. Jen and Erik were the weakest left and appropriately left first. I thought the editors did a great job in the second round with quick cuts from Gabe saying he always thought his main competition would be someone else in his kitchen, to Eric noting that Gabe and Tristan had helped each other in every challenge so far, but wondering will happen now. Then, back to Gabe asking Tristan for some of his fish which cuts right to Tristan who tells us with a big smile off set: "He's not getting any fish!" To his face, Tristan just says he can't hear Gabe. LOL. I also loved Jonathan Waxman as the guest mentor. What a classy guy who gave very thoughtful advice to the competitors and helped them settle their nerves under the pressure. I really hope this show is renewed. I know the ratings haven't been awesome, but I think with a few tweaks which we have mentioned before, it could be even more enjoyable.
I hope it is renewed too. I hadn't heard of it before until Gabe became a contestant. I know his uncle, so I was very pleased to see him win.
