I agree with you the SS story was bit underwhelming and they probably really wanted to cut ties with Arrow cause of the upcoming movie(s). I'm not really a fan of this douchy Oliver. He is super strong, smart and everything but that doesn't mean every decision he makes is the right one. The face off with Felicity still felt right and good. The Arrow vs the Suit wasn't that entertaining. I hoped for Ollie to kick a bit more as*. I adored Laurel in that room with Ray and it is good to see at least one of them to have a real job.
I overall agree with your review. Even though it was a solid episode but after all this time it still felt underwhelming, they could've at least give us the face. But season 6A should be interesting I hope things will fall in place and they aren't pulling things as they go.
I really enjoyed the episode, it had a different feel to it and wasn't that pushy.Nyssa seeking out Laurel was so moving. She had nothing but the memory of the woman she loved. Nyssa wouldn't be pissed at Ra's if she had Sara but now she has just the memory of her ans her sister who knows just the right side of Sara.Lance is pushing it a bit to far with Laurel. Especially considering she is a recovering addict. Not very good parenting. I get him being angry even at the Arrow but come on. The only good thing about this is Paul B is getting more screen time.Felicity was quite charming this week around. She had something different to her. I liked how they played this new Felicity, assured in her dominance and her position in the world. She is a strong woman mentally and a force to be reckoned with.Can't wait to see what Ra's will unleash on SC and how can this story conclude without Ra's or Oliver dying?
I wouldn't agree with all your negativity towards the cure storyline. In S04 thr cure wasn't even the dilemma the boring hunt for it and stretching the story out to much were the issue. The cure brought up some interesting question for the characters and gave them a lot of acceptance of who the become. Of course someone will get cure and my guess is either Stefan or Damon but lets see. Probably Kai will try to act some revenge on Bonnie cure Damon and than kill human Damon.I also thought Stefan was faking it to keep an eye on Caroline but Stefan would never kill an innocent just to proove something for Caroline.

No he won't cause Katherine started aging rapidly after Silas drained all her blood. Before that she was just a spoiled girl being a B.

U've killed this review on so many levels Carissa!!!! I love every single tidbit of it. The approach you took and how you analized Oliver's character while including this weeks events, tremendous. I just see Oliver much more broken and understand that it is probably hard for him to always be that optimistic. He does the best he can all the time but was never able to protect the people he loves. He let Thea go, without checking on her, Moira died cause of his actions, Sara died cause he didn't watch Thea enough, he feels the weight of the world on his back and no matter what he does he can't cure the city, the world around him. I didn't like that Raylicity had to have sex so it could be a plot device to push Oliver in either direction. No matter what Oliver had in mind that one day he and Fel could maybe be a thing and she being with the tall, handsome, eartshaking rich guy isn't helping that. Cause at the end he just wants her to be happy.

Loved the RT, reminded me about all the stuff I loved about the episode.Steroline name? Hotter(and more badas*) Dru and Spike.Do I like Caroline 2.0? I adore her. She should've snapped Stefan's neck and run away to NoLa for a week or two. Bonnie vs Kai? I hope he gets crashed very soon. Ripper Mom will be interesting to watch. Especially if Humanity less Stefan sticks around.
Even though this Margaux vs Emily is a bit silly, I like how persistent she is. There were a couple of enjoyable twists this week, hope they pick up the pace a bit and we get some more action.
We have to agree to disagree. I don't see the things like you. Lexa lost so much and go into war when she can avoid it? Why? Why put all your peoples lives in danger when you can all go safe and sound home? If the MM want another war on the ground, the Grounders will have the upper hand, cause they know the ground.And the MM aren't about conquering the world they just want to enjoy the outside. Again they are highly out numbered with only about 300 people in house.If you look at stuff like you than every choice made is about shocking the viewers. Remember that under that strategic woman is just a scared girl who was forced into this position.
A greaaaaaat episode! Just wow, a great our of TV. Why fidn't they air this as a 2hour season finale????? I'll go and sleep through the week. Was I the only one who was hearing the "Ain't no Mountain high enough" tune when Clarke stood in front of the huge door?
