    Then why you do this to us, whyyyyy?

    I am now imagining telling my friends about Spider-Gwen now, and having to carefully leave out that last part. Wtf.

    Gwen absolutely didn't snap anyone's neck

    She has him in a choke hold and then kicks him in the face

    Making sure everyone realizes that Spider-Gwen
    killed zero people and snapped zero necks

    she did however have that horrible dialogue with Peter

    In this episode of Arrow, many good decisions where made

    And I'm not even being sarcastic with that!

    For lack of a better word, I would say it was...productive
    The whole "I can't tell my dad Sara's dead!" thing was resolved, which was great, because I can't think of a subplot in any piece of fiction I disliked more

    Plus it set up what's sure to be a fun couple of episodes as Thea and Oliver become island friends

    Really the only plot advancement I didn't like was in the flashback stuff

    I'm just not sure if I'll be able to buy Oliver being in Starling City and remaining incognito; having Tommy show up in Hong Kong already felt like a bit much

    I haven't seen this Arrow yet but the Hong Kong flashbacks are the most nothing plotline they've ever done

    Yeah, but it's been entertaining

    I almost would have disliked it more if they had tried to pull a Season 2 again, have it be very connected with the overarching plot

    Watching tonight's Arrow
    Man, I'm glad Thea took the Arrow thing well

    I wasn't looking forward to an episode full of one of her EVERYONE KEEPS LYING TO ME things
    Thea taking it so well made for some really fun moments. Loved the "Korean Barbecue?" "C4."

    Combined with Captain Lance figuring out that Laurel is the Black Canary (and not telling her to stop) and finding out that Sara's dead, I think that relieves all of the SECRETS that have been plaguing this season. Hopefully they learn from that and stop doing it in the future.

    Well
    Team Arrow is still sitting on the fact that Thea shot Sara

    She doesn't know, and neither does Captain Lance

    I expect that to blow up in their faces

    And yeah those covers are super shitty

    The good news is, they're reversible, and on the other side are ones that are mostly better

    THEA VERSUS SLADE THEA VERSUS SLADE THEA VERSUS SLADE THEA VERSUS SLADE

    Looks more like
    Slade training Thea.

    The producers said Slade's got a clear head now that he's Mirakuru-free, and I'm sure even he's afraid of Ra's al Ghul.

    They also said it's going to be the end of Slade vs Oliver; not that it's necessarily the last time Slade will be on the show, just it will be taking care of his grudge and his Shado issues.

    Arrow, Arsenal, Diggle, Black Canary, Speedy, Merlyn, and Deathstroke vs the League of Assassins? I'd be into it.

    Well, differing opinions but it doesn't entertain me that much
    I tend to zone out and play with my phone while the flashbacks happen

    Oh yeah, I forgot about that. Thea and Laurel both don't know.

    Hopefully Laurel will take it as well as Thea took Oliver's secret, especially considering a) she knows how terrible Malcolm is, and 2) she just had her own case of "drugs fucking with your head"

    I can see Slade joining forces with them

    but the other images have him fighting Ollie and on the run and what not so it looks like they're fighting for now

    I don't think he'll join forces with them, but it'd make for some cool fights if he does.

    I think he'll help train Thea a bit (maybe out of clear-headed guilt for killing her mom right in front of her), and then fight Ollie and try to escape.

    The first half of this season was a little lacking. I still liked it enough, but it wasn't up to the usual Arrow par.

    Since the mid-season finale, though, it's been awesome.

    Needs more Roy parkour, though.

    I think last week was still kinda sloppy but had enough badass moments to make up for it

    it also doesn't help that Flash has been consistently wonderful

    I was really hoping that when Arrow and the dude they were chasing jumped off the stairwell (at the beginning of the episode) Roy would follow with a ridiculous flip for absolutely no reason.

    Roy parkour is my drug

    Oh my goodness

    Darth Vader #1 was excellent

    And I actually kind of really like Gillen
    making Boba Fett kind of the dark mirror to Han Solo

    I mean it isn't 1:1 but between his speech pattern and showing up with a wookie partner it is totally there

    The thing I liked was
    Gillen exercising his newfound terrible and godlike power over canon to not only delay Motti's death, but to make him Vader's boss. That is going to be so fun.
