Each of these final episodes has just gotten better and better. I feel sorry for Jane. I don't think Teresa really understands the depths of his fear because she's never lost as much as he has. The man ended up in a mental institution after his wife and child were murdered for goodness sake! I don't think Lisbon's logic (although correct) is going to make him feel much better.
I agree somewhat with what you said. But I think in some ways they react to death differently. I realize what Jane went through was so very horrible! But Lisbon did lose her mother to death and her father to alcohol and her response was to take on responsibility, to step up and get things done. Ofcourse she wasn't responsible for her mother's death or her father's alcoholism like Jane's behavior brought on his wife and child's horrific murder. They need to understand each other. This is something that will take time to work out. Afterall Lisbon works for the FBI because Jane got her the job and now he wants her to quit. Perhaps she could get a less dangerous job at the FBI. Not all of them go out with a gun hunting down the bad guys.
This season really needs Deathstroke back, now! I can forgive a lot of the unbelievable silliness as it is a comic book show, but the season has lacked from the continuous clear and present danger of one baddie and has kind of jumped around. Season 3 has been just so uneven. Still love the show just needs better focus. We need more ridiculous intense handshakes with villians!!! The one thing I will scream about is if they reveal Oliver was saved by an ancient Japanese herbal suppliment. I am hoping they will reveal they had some lazurus pit water in the cabins water cooler. Maybe Bobby Bushay will administer?
Yay! A new Castle and it looks like a Hitchcock themed one too. I can't wait.
Just when I started to kind of like Ben, Emily shows up on his doorstep and things move way too fast. I liked Emily with Daniel the best. I never really felt her relationship with Aiden although his death was horrifying. I know the end game is probably Emily and Jack and at this point that might even be interesting. Certainly more interesting than Emily and Ben.
Was it just me or did anyone else LOVE that Mallory now has an elaborate voicemail. Long overdue lol Also, apparently this whole episode was based on an old Clint Eastwood movie called "The Eiger Sanction". Suddenly feel like watching it
This finale should be the best one if stuff actually continues at this pace.
I was a huge fan of this episode. I thought it was super exciting!
It was an awesome episode once again! This show is so good. Hope it lasts many many seasons! So many things to potentially explore..Loving Octavia´s storyline, seems she will definitely end a Grounder Commander. BTW I missed my Jasper and Monty. Where were they? Hope they come back! Minus Maya please..
This may be my least favorite episode in the run of the series. It astounds me that the writers chose to have FELICITY, the character who went toe to toe with Moira Queen about telling the truth, thought it would be a good idea for Laurel to pretend to be Sara by using a voice modulator. That is the most out of character thing I have seen yet on this show, and it really shows how badly the writers want to push Laurel's journey. How about when FELICITY, the smartest one in the group, thought it would be a good idea for Laurel to dress as Canary? WHAT? The Felicity up until now would have questioned Laurel's skill and would have been concerned about her getting hurt by being in a place she wasn't ready to be in. I do believe that Felicity would support Laurel's choice to suit up, but only when Laurel had the training to be believable. Speaking of believable, Digg is on the coms while Laurel & Roy are fighting? What? When would the Diggle we have come to know not be in battle with them? And the Laurel that can't jump and land upright can jump from a window and catch the ladder of a helicopter in flight? It saddens me that the only way the writers could develop a story for Laurel was to have Diggle and Felicity act out of character to prop Laurel up. It's not Laurel's fault nor is it Katie Cassidy's. It's sloppy storytelling on the part of the writers. I'm done watching Arrow live. Soon I may be done watching Arrow at all.
Love all these comments and insights. I also couldn't understand the writers for making Lisbon appear so naive about why Jane wanted to protect her. It's a real stretch to think she thought it could be jealousy when he's never been jealous before! When he had insomnia she understood that he was worried someone would be hurt although she didn't connect that he was talking about her. Maybe she just subconsciously doesn't want to face the real issue because it's a huge one.
I agree with you. Was a weird comment from TL that he should not be jealous of her work. He's been saying since like episode 3 or 4 that he is scared. I feel like PJ has been slipping into a stressed/sad state of mind the last few episodes...which is a bummer. I liked his sparkling eyes and killer smile that we got the first few episodes when he seemed so obviously happy! It is a huge issue, not sure how they get over it. Her work is too important to her, has been her whole life. I can't see her compromising on that for anyone!
I think if they are going to make this relationship work they are both going to have to compromise. He can't let his fears rule their lives and she can't let the fact that she has worked in law enforcement her whole life rule their lives either. Perhaps there is a job in law enforcement that would be less dangerous for her although she may really thrive on the excitement of it like Jane thrives when he is using his natural skills.
