Chris Ferrell is a long time fan of a variety of so called nerdy things. Growing up he was introduced to Star War, Star Trek, and Babylon 5 by his father.

FEEDBACK

From our last video on YouTube: Pfruit0916 I watched Arrow 150 and really enjoyed the documentary format, it was a fresh take on an episode. Plus, it was nice to see so many guest appearances, specifically Thea & Quentin. Also, the call back to Adam Hunt in s1 was great. The villain of the week was a throwaway but he gave us some great fight scenes. I like that they addressed the lack of bromance between Diggle and Oliver. It was nice to finally see a version of John Diggle I recognize. I hope they have a similar conversation between Diggle and Felicity because that friendship has been strained. Also, he really needs to tell olicity about Diaz. William’s subplot, while not exactly fun to watch, actually made sense. He has been kidnapped, an explosion killed his mom, his dad went to prison and then his new mom was almost shot in front of him. That kid has a lot of issues. And while I understand that after the break-in during 7×08 and the Elseworlds craziness olicity probably thought it was best to not bring him home to that insanity, I also understand his resentment. There’s more to the story since he was expelled. I’m inclined to believe they will be revealing his sexuality soon and that may be playing a part in his behavior. (Side note: They may not share blood but he really is a lot like felicity if he was able to create a fake school website. And I really appreciate them showing the friendship between William and Zoe that was mentioned in the flash forwards.) I found Mayor Pollard’s turn around and acceptance of vigilantes abrupt. We keep being told by the flash forwards that vigilantism, led to the destruction of Star City. I feel that Pollard deciding to deputize the whole team is a set up for their downfall.

Discord:

StephenJondrew – I still suspect the flash forwards could be wiped out – perhaps it even leads to how the timeline is resolved. Like maybe an action they do in the future affects the past. Because I totally agree SP – I think that as they stand, it puts a damper on it. As someone said on twitter that I saw – they basically mean that all their hard work in the present “means jack poop”

FEEDBACK

From YouTube:  Pfruit0916

I thought this was a decent episode but had entirely too much Rene. That being said, it did get me invested in Emiko & her hunt for her mother’s killer. I’m going ahead and predicted that this Dante person, Dig & Lyla are investigating is also responsible for Kazumi’s death. Dante/his organization obviously has resources since he paid the long bow hunters for Diaz, so he would be able to commit a murder and set someone else up for it. I’m glad the reveal of Emiko came very quickly. Felicity was able to figure out that it was Thea who killed Sara based on olivers DNA markers in s3 so if she didn’t figure this out I would have been annoyed. Oliver’s reaction to the news made complete sense. He knows he parents have made questionable choices but they loved him and Thea. So of course it would be hard to reconcile that the same parents who died to protect him would then abandon Emiko.

I really enjoyed The olicity interactions this episode. In 7×08 a big part of their conflict was that she changed and as Oliver said, He fell in love with the old Felicity. And she said she couldn’t go back to being the girl he met with the red pen. I think she just needed reassurance that he could accept this new version of her. He gave her that in the crossover, when he said no matter who she grew into he would love her. Now they can move forward as a team. The DNA recognition security system that felicity installed in their apartment may be in the first step toward the Archer program that’s mentioned in the future.

Also, I found it interesting that Curtis was the only team arrow member not mentioned as having the Mark of Four. I have a feeling he’s dying at some point this season. Lastly, since the show seems to be shifting to Arrow Jr. with the hero’s kids showing up I’m wondering when we will see grown up JJ.

FEEDBACK:

Hey guys I love your show as always. There are a few thoughts I have and wanted to get your opinion on it as well.

I think Blackstar is actually Oliver And Felicity’s daughter. It makes sense, as she is super intelligent like Felicity and a great fighter like Oliver.

I wonder who is Emiko’s mother. My obvious thought is Ravager, considering her combat abilities and the history of Ravager and Robert, but I could be wrong. If that is the case, then why was Ravagers daughter never mentioned in season 2?

Thank you for your insight

David
