Barry and Felicity make sense, and they have true chemistry. Unfortunately, they'll never get their chance to shine. Overall it was definitely a switch-up from what we've seen so far, Barry opens, bad buy captured, a visit to dad, a dad-worthy moment with Joe, Wells takes us out. It means the show is progressing!
You should watch Arrow. It's a little darker, but not Gotham dark. The same team writes it, so you'll likely feel at home quickly. Plus, now you're a Felicity fan. You can't be a Felicity fan and not watch Arrow.
The bad guys got away in the theater (museum?) because he was unable to focus due to his inability to save one person. That's why he needs to toughen up. Stopping to mourn meant Cold got away. However, it's also confusing because we don't know if he's stopping for a nanosecond or if he's really stopping, you know? I decided that Cold allowed Barry to live because he considers him a fun plaything. He knows Barry's weaknesses and can continue to use them against him while still playing with the town and not killing a bunch of people. Remember, he told his crew at the onset that he didn't like killing, only if absolutely necessary. Of course, his ideas of necessary and mine may differ!
There was SO MUCH I DIDN'T MENTION! LOL I wrote far more than I usually do, but damn. How can you not where this series is concerned? Barry and Felicity will remain great friends. Olicity fans know that, and Barry poses no threat. I didn't get into Harrison, although it crossed my mind. He was incredibly unhappy about Cisco, but given what little we know of him so far, that makes sense. I felt the hour's biggest topics were Felicity's impact on Barry's future with the team, getting to know a bit more about Iris and forgiving her her trespasses, and the awesomeness that was Leonard Snart.
I'm really not diggin' this season. I thought the first two hours were great, but I'm getting lost in her methods.
If he's playing her (a possibility, but what we've seen of him with his friends and being beat up leads me to believe he's a bit wimpy) the entire series will crumble because of how badly Carrie fumbled this play. Right? Not happy.
I think Alison's inability to pick up her life and move on (she couldn't even go back to work) fueled to her desire to forget her old life, which she associates with Cole. Sad that, because he is the far superior man. Grief can also drive you to make terrible decisions.
I actually tried not to think of the next episode at all. It's completely different than this one so it is easy for this to stand on its own. As for the question, "are we seeing what each of them perceived happened or what they want Jefferies to believe," I think a good detective can get his witnesses to stop lying and get to the truth. As things get closer together (both recalled Alison wearing a blue t-shirt with buttons down the front, for example), the more we should be able to see the bigger picture through he lies. Perception, however, is the key here. I really want to read up on the subject because it can even alter the way people recall television shows and react to reviews. The topic is so interesting to me!
OMG -- If it would end up being his book (which, considering each hour is given no title but a number instead makes good sense), I'll get in on that class action suit!
AMC just bought out (or merged with?) BBCA, so their entire strategy going forward will be different.
