Arrow Season 3
« on: October 14, 2014, 06:01:54 AM »
How did we not have an Arrow Season 3 thread already? :o

So a question for all of you:

Spoiler for Hidden:
Who shot the Canary?

I just finished with season 2 on Netflix.  Which might've been decent if not for the constant flashbacks.  I thought maybe they'd be done in season 3 since it all seemed resolved, but then it ended with a flashback to post-island Hong Kong.  So, tell me, has season 3 been riddled with flashbacks, too?

I enjoy the flashbacks as much as the show.

It parallels the story and lets us know how Oliver developed.
But I get it why its not for everyone.
It takes a village to raise a child. And it takes a villain to explain the value of lunch money.

I, personally, like the flashbacks.  It gives more insight into the Arrow's development.   And I think it was Ra's Al Ghul's (bad spelling, probably) henchman.  I am probably wrong.

It looks like they're setting up for Oliver to get his full hero codename. The public have now seen the Arrow and his red-clad partner working together. They're both archers, and the public and the press won't know what to call Roy. He's with the Arrow, so I figure that they'll start calling him the Red Arrow. And then, by virtue of retronym, Oliver finally becomes the Green Arrow.

I'm not liking the flashbacks now but I loved the island flashbacks.  I'm seriously considering editing all of them together to make an Oliver Crusoe movie.

Spoiler for Hidden:
Who shot JR?  It's definitely somebody she knew but obviously didn't expect to see.  The way she said "What are you doing here." wasn't said as if it were somebody who was in the area.  Not even Thea.  I think it's probably Nyssa.  I don't know why she would kill Sara other than series necessity.  Laurel is going to become the Black Canary so something had to push her over into vigilante mode.

Well, after last night's episode, that theory might be flushed down the toilet...

I'm actually thinking it was

Thea. Maybe as a "test" from Merlin.

  but as far as last nights episode it was great to see
Spoiler for Hidden:
Wildcat and Manhunter.
I like that they keep bringing in the non super DC characters.  And I really wish that they had been able to go with Ted Kord instead of Ray Palmer because Routh is doing a great job of playing a Kord like character.

I'd like to know what they intend to do with Ray Palmer. "Arrow" is a more-realistic universe, and they bring in the civilian name of a hero who can shrink himself to sub-microscopic size? I figure three possibilities:

1. They're only using (wasting) the name, and have no intention of his being anyone out of the ordinary. (Unlikely; they'd risk fan-base discontent, and they've shown too much respect for the source material to screw up like that.)

2. They intend to have him become someone other than The Atom as we know him. (Precedent:
Spoiler for Hidden:
Isabel Rochev became the super-powered Ravager, instead of The Queen, and had only her name and backstory to link her to The Queen.
)

3. He was in Central City when the particle accelerator blew, and actually is some form of The Atom.

Time will tell, of course, but they've done very well so far, so I'm optimistically hopeful, and look forward to seeing the situation unfold.

I'm betting this and either he already is The Atom, and we just haven't seen him in action, or he hasn't discovered his abilities yet.

In tonight's episode, when Felicity pointed out that she had blonde hair (like her mother's), and her mother said, "You dye yours", was anyone else looking at Mom's dark roots and thinking, "And you don't?"

Speaking of Roy, I just found out that he (Colton Haynes) graduated from my high school a year before me. :o

Spoiler for Hidden:
It won't be Roy though.  It will be him remembering something he saw and had wiped from his memory.  They already had a "Roy gets bad and does something he would never normally do" arc so they won't repeat that idea.  If this were Marvel I'd say he saw Bullseye but I don't know of any DC villains who throw non throwing items with deadly accuracy.  Possibly Boomerang could manage it.

I'm not sure how Oliver is swinging around the city given his condition.  Maybe there's some trickery with which events took place at which times?

Then again, it's superhero show, so injuries aren't always going to reflect reality.

Spoiler for Hidden:
What happened to Wildcat after the battle?  From the way Laurel was talking, Ted was on death's door...

Things I learned from this week's episode:
Spoiler for Hidden:
when leading a street gang full of armed gunmen against a mob of townspeople armed with one gun, a bow and arrow and some baseball bats, it's important to remember to only use those guns as bludgeoning weapons. under no circumstances should you mow down the opposing mob. it's also important when forming a mob to take on a well-armed street gang that you recruit mostly unarmed civilians, a teenager whose powers include a leather jacket and a tough looking haircut, and a former vigilante whose powers include boxing and wearing a ski mask. under no circumstances should you recruit the guy you know who has an armored suit that shoots hard-light beams, the guy you know with superspeed who could disarm the entire gang in a second, or anyone from the covert military outfit you have worked with on multiple occasions.

Anyone else wondering when Tatsu will show up in costume?  Originally Katana and her soul sucking sword came to the USA to avenge her husband and son, could still go that route with her informing Oli they're dead and she's there to help against the LoA.
