I'm expecting Wilddog's new armor from the first episode of this season to just be a work in progress from Felicity/Terrific/Cisco to keep him better protected and failed horribly after being shot by a high powered gun (apparently loaded with armor piercing rounds) and critically injured after landing on a car. Complete fail on all parts and after getting another chance to get custody of his daughter, Rene is probably going to want less frontline action or at least something way more advanced against bullets of any kind. The design team probably needed more time to update his street level design and came up with a more "armored stealth suit" temp until the final version was ready and used his wounded status to sideline him until then. Rene returns to active duty under the new leadership of the all new Green Arrow in this weeks show so lets hope some changes are made.

Three words: Speedy drug plot. Even though Roy and Thea have worn the Speedy costume, Diggle has always come off as this series sidekick to me.

This'll be the third time they use the Speedy drug plot... aren't there any other major events in Green Arrow history they can use?

There are but it would require the writer's to actually put some real work in to do them.

You know, I know these shows take a hefty bit of suspension of belief to be able to watch and enjoy.  As if everyone bad guy in a pretty sizable city can't tell that's their mayor wearing a latex eye cover whupping their ashes.  But can we not at least ignore what's painfully obvious?

IT was sarcasm when she said that. She knew exactly it wasn't Oliver and has encountered the team enough times to know which of Arrow's team might be the right build and height and above all.. skin tone.

I just saw my previous post and this is going to be a bit ironic- Arrow is ending with season 8.I want to say we had a good run but...well,we had two great seasons and then it kinda went downhill.

The whole Oliver in prison arc was boring. Diaz was a lame villain and shouldn't have lived past the end of last season. And this whole flash forward in time thing with William is uninteresting, to say the least.
I've no problem with it ending.

I'm ok with it ending too. I do think it's gone on a bit too long, that Diaz has been in the show too long, and the flash forwards....well, I'm getting flashbacks to Lost, more so than usual with Arrow. Like the infamous final season of Lost, it's got me going "Ok, what is the point of all this?"

If Arrow's finally ending, I can't imagine Legends will last much longer.

Yeah. Cosigning the both of you.

The show was definitely a good start to a Arrowverse. The villains were intriguing. It's constant pulls from continuity kept it fresh and relevant and the story was intriguing. Oliver's list, all his parents' secrets.  And it was good for several seasons until it wasn't.  Diaz had a lot of potential as a concept, but it just drag and drag and drag and just when you thought it was going to end, they decided to drag it on for a whole another season.  And what's worse, where for better or for worse, every season had a theme or at least a coherent story, I still don't know what the hell is going on with this season.

But to be completely honest with you, IMO what's really constantly drug this show down is their insistence on making the Oliver/Felicity story so critical to the entire story. Alone, Felicity is a good character a bit of a relief from the heavy tone of the show, but putting them together you not only get her characterization, but multiply it with a romantic angle that just didn't fit with the series even if the characters were right just bogged it down and they just continued to feed it to us.

Honestly, I just didn't care for what they did with the newest episode:

But hey, you know the crossover's going to be epic, right? So at least there's that.  :D

Just announced that Emily Bett Rickards will be leaving the show at the end of the season.

And if you were to let the FB comments tell it, fans now want the show to go on for a few more seasons now.

Saw the first episode of Arrow, which does indeed appear to be mostly about the Crisis and it is a VAST improvement.  If they keep this season about Ollies' multiverse adventures doing tasks  and gathering things to prepare for the Crisis I will be very pleased, but this was quite fun.  Well, except for the flash-forwards, which mostly bore me.

Yeah, I'd say it was pretty good. The future stuff is still a complete snooze, and I don't think that's likely to change any time soon, but seeing Oliver navigate Season 1 of his own personal Earth 2? Actually kinda cool. And definitely hits the right nostalgia buttons (I've been rewatching the previous seasons of Arrow on lately, which really highlights what was good, and where the show start to decline over time). The showrunner did a bunch of interviews leading up to the premire, and the main takeways I got where 1. Lots of guest stars, like surprise guest stars in every episode and 2. Almost the entire season is going to be this. More than half the season is apparently going to take place somewhere other than the present-day, main universe Star City. The former I thought sounded great, the latter I was...curious about? But yeah, for now, pretty neat.

I haven't watched it yet (Have only watched this week's Flash and Batwoman), but I read that they're continuing with the future stuff with Mia and William. That was the worst part of last season, and they may be getting a spin-off next season. I fired off a long chain of choice words I cannot use here when I heard about the spin-off. So I think you can guess that I will not be watching it.

Had an issue with the Flash, but since this isn't a thread about it, I won't discuss that here.

Yeah, I'm with you guys. This episode was much more fun.

The sad part is, I pretty much zoned out most of the end of last season so I have hardly any idea of what the heck is going on.

But this was very reminiscent of the earlier seasons. Not just because of the sets and characters, but it seemed.... less cluttered. I guess is a way of putting it. I'm definitely interested in seeing where it goes.

In fact, virtually nothing about this episode has anything to do with the previous season.  All you need to know is that in payment for the Monitor saving Flash and Supergirl, GA is now running errands for him to prepare for the crisis, leading to him being dropped off to where we see him in the beginning of the episode.  The future segments are the only bits really connected to last season and they aren't worth paying that much attention to anyway.
