That's probably the best thing that could have ever happened to the show.
I wasn't even aware that there was still an audience/market for reality competition shows like this. Hmmm.
Hannibal's actors being snubbed is one thing - that lead actor category is a tough one. But not getting a nod for either art direction or cinematography is just ridiculous. Homeland and House of Cards don't hold a candle to Hannibal in that department. And Arrow not getting a stunt coordination nomination - over Hawaii Five-O, Revolution and the Blacklist? Honestly.
Ugh...the Emmys. Got some right, got a lot wrong. The technical awards are a fail too. No cinematography or art direction nod for Hannibal? No casting nod for Brooklyn Nine-Nine? No stunt coordination or choreography for Arrow? Are you kidding me?

Welcome to the fandom!
Probably the most rational analysis of these characters and the scenes I've seen thus far. You're certainly living up to your name :-)
I love your responses to things :-)
@JK - I'm pretty sure it was staged - that's why on the island, when Felicity told him he really sold it, he responded, "we both did." @lisa - I don't think Oliver went off-script; they both went there with the intention of getting Slade to think he should have Felicity instead of Laurel. What they weren't prepared for was how it would feel to actually say and hear those words. I think Oliver said it with more intensity and truth than he thought he would, and it caught Felicity off-guard.
Spot on review, Carissa! I loved EVERYTHING about this finale, everything. It was fantastic. A few standouts for me: - The final fight scene between Slade and Oliver. I loved how it was woven in with the fight scene on the freighter. It was so symbolic. Oliver had fought this battle before, but this time, he had the strength to change the outcome and make a different choice. Loved it. - I LOVED how they handled Oliver and Felicity. I mean, it could not have been better executed than that. Pretty much anything else would have been cheesy and forced - this was perfect. I knew it was a set-up when they went to the mansion...but it was still so great to watch, still organic and natural, all the way to the island. - I laughed out loud at the unceremonious death of Isabel Rochev. That was great. This was a phenomenal finale - probably the best I've seen in a long time. Freakin' fantastic.
We did see his face in the tavern :-)
