Her wild shots on that city street could have easily gone through a kid's head. That was beyond reckless.

Which is why the preview for next week shows Oliver teaching Helena how to shoot, like that pot throwing scene in Ghost but with bows and arrows and probably less Unchained Melody.

I don't think she's a bad person. Just a very sad, angry person who's moving a little too quickly in her plan for justice.

I'm not saying she's bad either, I'm just saying Arrow isn't a hypocrite, he has a valid point in this case. Now if he was bitching about somebody as skilled as he is ... then I'd be on the hypocrisy train with the rest of you.

This week's episode, wherein Oliver makes some bad decisions about BRINGING THE NEW GIRL TO THE LAIR WTF.

I swear, Diggle is the only character with any common sense.

I don't know. Sometimes to get someone to trust you, you have to trust them first. And everything would have been fine if they hadn't run into his stupid assed girlfriend and stupider assed best friend.

Speaking of stupid, how about Helena accusing him of "making" her have dinner with his ex? Um, bitch, YOUR ass invited her to the table!

He has strained relationships with his mom, stepdad, little sister, ex girlfriend, and best friend. Why not bring them to the lair, too?

And he said that he could see in her eyes after the awkward dinner with Laurel and Tommy that she's bat**** and can't be changed. So then, what else would have set her off about him? Eventually meeting Laurel, which was bound to happen? A disagreement about how to properly dispense justice? The one time he handles something on his own and doesn't invite her or tell her until afterward? The fact that he's actively trying to prevent a mob war while she's actively trying to start one?

I'm just saying that rushing right into making her a trusted sidekick was a bad idea. Yeah, I'm the one who said last week that I thought she might be okay. But he could have set up an archery range in another abandoned warehouse or something as a trial run. You just need a couple of target bags and some space.

Speaking of stupid, how about Helena accusing him of "making" her have dinner with his ex? Um, bitch, YOUR ass invited her to the table!


YES. And didn't every other person say "are you sure?!" before agreeing to it?

This week's episode, wherein everyone suspends normal brain activity to let their reproductive organs do the reasoning for awhile.

So if Hot Computer Chick making innuendos/working for Ollie's stepdad is the Oracle, we now have the Birds of Prey.

I hope so!

I have no idea what you're talking about, but that makes it sound like she has an important role. I like her, and I want to see her do more stuff.

For her to have that Important Role, CW will have to mess her up royally. Ok with that, icey ?

Anyway, this week's episode (I'm a night late thanks to a Christmas party), wherein the Queens throw a really crappy dinner party, the casual viewer has to learn the difference between a compound and a recurve fast, Oliver chooses a side in The War On Christmas, and we learn that Captain Jack can shoot.

Yep. Seriously. He posted about it on Facebook. His, the original, is the one with "**** You" etc. The second version was censored to be "Screw You" by none other George "Oh my!" Takei.


Indeed, it's true. It all started here: http://thefandomzone...ou-im-iron-man.

So I guess Laurel's coming up to the front again. I've been looking for this thread and forgot to check here.

Anyone else bummed that the Atom is basically just Iron Man lite? Where's the shrinking powers?! :(

I've never read the Atom comic but yeah it seems like nothing more than Ironman with some glowy lights.

Atom is supposed to be like Ant-Man, except without the insect control and wife-smacking. I think he can shrink much more, down to subatomic levels. Don't remember him ever flying around and having laser blasts. :|

Alright, I was a couple of weeks behind, but I caught up late Wednesday afternoon, just in time for...a rerun. Dammit, that needs to stop happening. Still, this show is the best DC show ever, so it's worth waiting for.

 

Meanwhile, we have this: CW Reveals Working Title For "Arrow"/"Flash" Spinoff Series

 

 

Given it's being built as a superhero team with an ensemble cast (I just recently learned about Hawkgirl, awesome addition!), I really doubt this title will stick. After the last episode, I was very hopeful that the nanites would somehow give Ray his shrinking ability and, having seen how easily Arrow disabled him when he relied on his gadgets, ditch his God-awful suit (which, as noted above, screams cheap imitation Iron Man). Maybe (hopefully) that will still happen, but after watching the Flash preview that CoLa posted, it looks like he'll still be wearing the suit for at least the next week. *sigh*

 

One very good thing I noticed in that article - if it's actually true - is that Caity Lotz, who had been speculated as possibly playing a new character, will indeed still be playing a (resurrected?) Black Canary!!! This is awesome news for two reasons: A) I really, really like Sarah as Black Canary and 2) I really, really, really hate her sister as Black Canary. Utterly unbelievable, uninteresting, and unwatchable. I pray this means Sarah will be on the new show and Laurel will retire and go back to just being an annoying lawyer/alcoholic/love interest/non-love interest/programmable plot point. Or better yet, not.

 

I'm also still confused about why only Jack Bristow is going to be on the new show. I hope this doesn't mean that Arrow's cousin Firestorm isn't going to be around anymore. :(

 

 

EDIT: Just discovered another article that supports Sarah's inclusion in the spinoff, but makes speculations that leave the door frightfully open for Laurel. Hmm...
