I'm sure the Olicity fangirls exploded in a chorus of "squeeeeeeee" during this episode but it just got a big fat raspberry from me. The word "Moonlighting" also flashed before my eyes too.

All the Felicity woe went on far too long. Long enough for this to become the worst episode of the season for me. And she made Ray sad too. Boooo!

Thea coming back instantly and then regaining her memories was anticlimactic. If anything the dramatic focus should have been on ressurrecting her, not the on/off/on/off romance stuff.

I think the only highpoints for me were the stuntman food cart vendor kicking ass, the speech to Diggle and the last couple of minutes of Ollie dressed in a shadow suit. Unfortunately for him that probably means he has lost all his skill now, because even Felicity can take out a League uniformed flunky with a stick. The rest just walk into the path of deadly weapons.

Also worth noting a fine example of TV bullets. On TV superhero shows bullets cannot penetrate anything. Except bulletproof vests. They bounce off glass, cars, barrels ... but go right through any body armor worn by a bad guy.

Yeaaaaaaaah, that moment where four guys with semi automatics were firing from a truck at a car 5 ft behind them and didn't hit Ollie who was climbing over.... Just gotta shrug those off as comic action.

I keep trying to get into this show, keeping in mind that it is about superheroes, but the plots and the overall tone just bores me. In this past episode, the heroes go into the lair of the villain to save Thea. Not to mention the fact that the villain is that one that mortally wounded her. Major drama and suspense, right? No, it's all just hushed tones, false bravado, a few stormtrooper fight scenes, and a cheesy hallmark moment.


I keep hoping it gets better.

I spent half the episode playing a handheld video game -- never a good sign as usually I give shows I'm into my full undivided attention. Heck, I was more into watching my recording of iZombie that same night.
