one ep behind so I'm only going to skim this thread til I get a chance this weekend but this is definitely one of the better shows on TV right now, absolutely fantastic world building/storylines and surprisingly even acting which is a big turnaround from how it started. looking forward to the flash show too.

Limiting Laurel has definitely improved the acting.

I wonder when Malcolm Merlyn is coming back. Or the League of Assassins for that matter. Looking at the preview trailer for future events, it looks like neither will have much impact in the near future.

By the way, there is a ridiculous amount of attractive women on this show. Whether it's regulars or guest stars. Katie Cassidy looks a little strange this season with the amount of weight she has lost.

Im hoping Malcolm Merlyn does come back at some point. I like the character, and I like John Barrowman.

Laurel should definitely be killed off. That'd be a huge boost to the show.

I think it's actually pretty awesome/crazy how many bad guys are in play. Normally you'd expect a show like this to have one villain at a time. There are pretty much tons of villains hanging around. Deadshot, Merlyn, Slade, possibly Harley Quinn, as well as others.

Strange that Isabel Rochev (Summer Glau) has essentially vanished from the show. She seemed like she was being set up to stick around for a while. This show puts a lot of things on the shelf though, and then has a habit of bringing them back down the road. Hopefully she comes back.

EDIT: Nevermind, she will be back. I didn't know she was a character from the comics as well.

show creators have come out and said it was just an easter egg, not a setup for a future storyline, but still pretty flippin fantastic.

here you go

http://www.blastr.com/2014-3-21/arro...inn-easter-egg

notably: "I want to manage expectations with respect to Harley Quinn. She was always intended to be an Easter egg. I donít want people to go in with incorrect expectations and walk away from Episode 16 disappointed. But there is an element to the Easter egg that was not spoiled by the promo, that I think people will find a lot of fun.Ē

The episode was okay. The Suicide Squad was a little disappointing. I thought they would be more involved. Maybe China White joins the Suicide Squad? This was more of a Diggle episode, which is fine. He hasn't had much to do. I enjoyed the sub-plot with Slade playing mind games with Oliver. I keep getting the feeling that Sarah is going to die. Slade will find a way to turn the tables and take from Oliver what he feels Oliver took from him. Maybe then this sets up Laurel taking the mantle of Black Canary. I heard a theory of Laurel potentially running into the League of Assassins or getting involved with someone so she learns skills. At least it seems like Laurel is trying to turn her chaotic life around. She has gotten better the last couple of sessions.

By the way, what do we think about Slade's motivations against Oliver thus far? I was listening to a separate discussion that was interesting. Essentially it was pushing the notion that Slade's motivations for revenge are a little weak, contrived, and might not make that much sense. Slade is really upset towards Oliver for Shado's death, but really, Slade and Shado didn't even really spend any time together. Not enough for there to be a legitimate relationship between the two. Did Shado even know that Slade felt so strongly about her? And now Slade is just fuming towards Oliver as if he lost his wife of ten years or something. It kind of comes off as high schoolish. This is more of an infatuation, not true love Slade was in. And of course one could say he was being influenced by the mirakuru so he's out of control, but 5 years has passed and Slade still has the desire to make Oliver pay for Shado's death. And if he is truly out of control/not himself then it's hard to buy that Slade has went to all this trouble during the five years to come up with this intricate plan to get revenge on Oliver for someone that didn't even know him that well. It took Roy a little while, but he's on the drug and seems to have his head straight now. What might make things a little worse is the scene when Slade actually finds out and Oliver does a horrible job of putting things in context. Obviously he feels guilty for Shado's death, but he still didn't kill her. Manu Bennett does a great job of selling it at least. It's all a little Harry Osborn though.

It took Roy a little while, but he's on the drug and seems to have his head straight now. What might make things a little worse is the scene when Slade actually finds out and Oliver does a horrible job of putting things in context. Obviously he feels guilty for Shado's death, but he still didn't kill her. Manu Bennett does a great job of selling it at least. It's all a little Harry Osborn though.
I agree and it's a noticeable weakness but at the end of the day we get vengeful smoldering Manu Bennett as Deathstroke out of it so is it really in our best interest to complain?

It is worth the tradeoff. I do like this show a lot which is why I'm willing to critique the flaws it does have. All of that could have made a little more sense if they simply hooked up Shado and Slade from the beginning instead of Oliver and Shado.

I've always thought of the Slade/Oliver revenge to partially be based on how Oliver was hooking up with Shado, and that prevented her and Slade from being together. So Slade not only has the "you killed Shado" mojo going, but also the "Oliver kept me from ever actually being with Shado" mojo also. At least that's how I read it.
