I'd like to see bottle-bound Jafar face of against mirror-bound Sidney. Giancarlo Esposito has not been allowed to show how really scary he can be on OUAT. Frankly, he'd wipe the floor with Regina & Anastasia. Ever seen him on BREAKING BAD?
I'm disappointed in how Felicity was written in this episode wrt Ray Palmer. When we met her in Season 1, she was very independent. It's taken her a while to warm up to the idea of being with any guy, much less Oliver. So, the fact that her head is turned by Palmer's billionaire moves in under one week seems more than a little shallow. Come on - even Laurel would see through that & tell him to cool his heels in his boardroom. Why do action shows always make the women progressively more dependant on the male leads? Felicity doesn't need to cry on the nearest wealthy male to show viewers she wants more out of life. She just needs to be shown doing more than typing on the underground computer.
I think it's been established that Elizabeth & Henry are pretty cozy at the Univ of Virginia. She doesn't seem to have any pull with Harvard. IMO, this was the weakest part of the episode. The whole grade thing making the difference btw life or death for a CIA asset was insulting for all parties involved - Elizabeth, Henry, *and* the Russian. Weapons systems are serious business. Reputations, regimes, & careers rise & fall on their acquisition. To think that someone that high in any gov't would seriously consider the arming of a country as equally important to their child's GPA didn't leave any of them in a good light IMO. And, hello! Arming Pakistan?!?! With all due respect, CIA assets know the drill. Is saving one asset worth a nuclear war btw Pakistan & India, because that's what it would come down to. THAT should have been the issue. Not Henry's integrity.
