1.Yes, Mer did make a mistake in not calling amy. But did Amy stay and wait for news about Derek with Mer? No! I think Mer went into her default mode of coping on her own, as she had done since Thatcher Grey walked out. But Shonda wants grit and conflict for SL's. This is why it was written this way. Conflict between Mer and her sister inlaw. (More to come in tonight's episode.) Amy is used to everyone rallying around and supporting her. But to unload all that anger on Mer, no way was Derek gonna survive., I think some of amy's anger is at herself because of her messing up previously.
2. Mrs Avery is going to appoint the next chief. I think it'll be a new character who'll have a lot of conflict with the board. It needs to be a man. Will there be another neuro surgeon appointed?
3. Not a fan of Kepner. But the promos and the way this season has gone makes me think Kepner maybe written out for sometime.
4. Jolex haven't had a SL this season. I'm expecting them to hit a very bumpy patch in their relationship, lots of glowering Jo. LOL
5. It wll be a huge mistake to contemplate Meredith and Alex together. We've watched a lot of scenes of Mer following her mother's life. Der was the love of Mer's life, I don't think she'll get involved with her new 'person' romantically.

So many comments that I cannot read them all right now. I didn't hate it the way most everyone here did, but there definitely were things about that I found disappointing. Oliver killing Ra's did seem too easy. It was hard to buy Felicity saving Oliver with the ATOM suit. I do like Oliver and Felicity together, but him quitting and taking Felicity on vacation was not how I wanted them to be a couple.
I loved it when Oliver said "My name is Oliver Queen!", that was awesome! I love Ray, and he was great. Barry was also great. I especially liked his "You have a hot tub?" comment. I wish that we had gotten more of Barry/The Flash. I am glad that they didn't leave things on a cliffhanger, so that is a good thing that happened in this finale. Despite things not ending exactly as I would have hoped, I am still looking forward to October 7th and the new season.

Amy,
You are being far too kind to Season 3 and E23 of Arrow. The writers fell off the wagon, as if they were drunk from one week to the next when scriptwriting. The main battle can't be so lackluster that it totally ruins the show! And Oliver dispatching Ra's rather easily really took any wind the sails may have had. This season finale should have ended with Oliver back in Nanda Parbat as Demon's Head with Nyssa by his side. Imagine Warith Al Ghul vs Damian Darkh! That would be a good storyline for me in my view for Season 4. I am hoping that Barry will totally erase Season 3 of Arrow or we can raise about 20 million and redo the episode again, this time as a 90 minute special. In total it was just that bad.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season Finale Review: S.O.S.

This was one of the best (if not the best) season finales I have seen this year. The only issue I had with it (and I'm probably the only one) is how they telegraphed the ending w/ the terrigen crystals and the future impact on the Marvel Universe.

Completely agree with this review, I hope the writers see this and take note.

Arrow Season 3 Finale Review: My Name is Oliver Queen

The finale (and this season as a whole) definitely took a hit quality wise. Personally, I think they probably should've waited on expanding the "Berlanti-verse" rather than add two more shows for next season. Like many others, I did have issues with things like Felicity in the suit (and her effectiveness for a first timer), the SCPD contingent at the dam (and the trigger happy snipers), Christopher Heyerdahl only getting 2 lines or so of dialogue (unless he somehow ends up being Damien), Thea (as Speedy) showing up out of the blue, etc. I'm not that disappointed with how the ending played out. Oliver does depart Star(ling) City in the comics. Oliver living a normal life would seem to give certain storylines a much better chance of being adapted for the show. Whether you like it or not, there WILL be flashbacks next season. They do (arguably) need to address things like Oliver's Bratva membership, how he learns to fly, and his return to Lian Yu either next season or during season 5. Also, this season isn't getting the "Dallas" treatment as a result of anything done on The Flash. It would be a much different case if Barry was only going back in time one year.

They might be boring, but they're going to continue until Oliver's 5 years away have been addressed. Perhaps they'll be able to fit 2 years of flashbacks into next season.

This ep was boring and highly predictable....why was Iris trying so hard with Eddie...she knows she luvs Barry...if she doesn't want to be with him fine...but don't drag other people into ur mess...go be alone...I feel that Iris should go abroad somewhere and then Barry can pine 4 her...while the Flash protects his city and helps out his hero friends. I sick of all the shipping....More heroes and villains plz. Snart is a joke as a villain where did they find this guy...his voice is irritating and he was just lame...ughhhh this ep was irritating and lame...I hope the finale is better....and that Iris goes far far far away 4 awhile...a long while.

hehehe....ur funny....I hope that's its good also...the CW is about to be off my must see list...they better get it together...but this ep was boring 4 me it was just too predictable...but I have faith in the finale...we'll just have to wait and see....

@ Rebekah Yaoming

I disagree. This Flash, compared to the last few weeks, and especially last week's episodes, was really good. Iris is a woman you see and therefore lives in a state of denial by nature. I do agree with you that Iris needs to go somewhere abroad, say Lian Yu for life? The shipping hurts both the Flash and Arrow shows and we saw last night just how bad it hurts. Olicity ruined Arrow and the wickedly awful season finale proved this in spades. From the trailer, it looks like the Flash season finale should be good. And I truly hope so. I want to chain Marc Guggenheim to a stake over hot coals, like they did to my dad...............

I was not happy about this finale...I mean what in the hell did I just watch...there is so much wrong I don't know where to start...but I can't say I will be back next season...pretty much all of the shows on this network are pissing me off...I am Not happy...Felicity has got to go....her character has long overstayed her welcome...when she outed Barry...I was like are u freakin serious...and then when she wanted Ray to go and save Oliver...wtf!!!....isn't she supposed to be a super hero also..she needs a Brain...I don't like her never did...now after this ep...my dislike 4 her is forever cemented...I am sick and tired of all of the shipping...CW get back to storytelling!!!

After it was finally over (thank God for the smaller pleasures in life) I asked myself a similar question: What on earth just happened?

Arrow Season 3 Finale Review: My Name is Oliver Queen

Wow well I loved the finale. Yeah yeah I like Olicity you are right. Doesn't mean we don't want the same thing. It all felt pretty rushed and a two hour season finale would have benn better there are still a lot of unaswered questions.
Still they tight up some.
Of course Felicity wanted to safe Oliver want to you think Oliver would have done in her situation? He would have find a way to safe both just like she did.
And she was the one who gave him the right frame of mind to fight Ras...he was ready to die. She made him fight to live.
The Season premiere forshadowed the ending we saw. We all knew Oliver would hang up the hoof for a while. Good for him. He deserves it. We all know he will come back. And Season 4 looks to be intense with the Hive, Damien Darhk and Bravta flashbacks.

Man im all for no more flashbacks at all.... especially if they continue to be that horrible yellow urine hue that makes me nauseous.

My condolences to you for liking this bowl of cream of wheat. This finale was wrong on so many levels and it only serves as an ominous warning that Season 4 will be worse. We have to tell the writers they srewed up Arrow Season 3 so they don't screw up season 4.

@ Nadine

I'm sorry but Felicity doesn't get a pass here.....yes Oliver would have found a way to save both..but that was NOT Felicity's intention at all.....she clearly asked Ray to stop and go save Oliver knowing he was trying to save the city, she only donned the suit AFTER he refused!!!!

Arrow Season 3 Finale Review: My Name is Oliver Queen

The SCPD snipers are most probably HIVE agents or been duped by them. Lance pointed that out + how did they know Ra's and oliver would be fighting in the dam. And Damien already knows that R'as is in town
