She's the one who broke up with Nate, so I think it's more like a "I'm fulfilling my destiny" sort of upgrade.

I wonder how they plan to resolve the Firestorm issue with this. If his first show is Jan 20th then he must be scheduled to leave around the mid-season break I gather.

It seemed like a reasonably dumb idea for him to bring that book about how JC (which I constantly was thinking Jesus Christ the entire episode) rose and fell, and how he didn't feel when a very large book was taken from him. Otherwise it was a really enjoyable episode.

It needed an extra beat. Like Nate asking Caesar to hold it really quick while he took a selfie and then simply forgetting to get it back. How it is reads more like Nate dropped it so he could take a selfie, which is dumb enough, but then Caesar weirdly has it without ever having to actually stoop down and pick it up after Nate and Sara leave.

Still, that was a good premiere.

I've seen people speculating online that might swap Lily in for Martin and just bullshit an explanation for how she's able to take his place as part of Firestorm. I think that'd be pretty cool, honestly. I like her as a character and she'd be a fun addition to the team full time if they went that way.

I assumed Caesar just pickpocketed it off of Nate. I know it's a realtively big book, but Nate is dumb.

They're angry that "Captain Sarah Lance: Time Lesbian!" sounds better than "Captain Sarah Lance: Time Bisexual" even though she is, in fact, a bisexual, as proven by all the male lovers she has had*.


*Who are, as of this post, all limited exclusively to men from the present. In all other times she's been strictly ladies only.**

**It's a really stupid argument either way. Bisexual erasure is a thing in media, maybe this season will do more to address the fact that she enjoys sleeping with lots of people, regardless of gender.***

*** "Time Lesbian" still sounds better though.

To be fair, they did extremely heavily hint (as in it doesn't really count as "hinting" but more outright stating) that she slept with a male bureau agent when she got his access card thingie.

I love that unlike in Flash, "characters act irrationally against their own interests" is acknowledged leads to fun plots.

Also has there been a bigger signal of a character dying than "I'll be back in time to see my grandkid be born"?

Didn't Nate straight up show her news reports and photos showing she died in Zambezi at the hands of colonial soldiers who showed up and torched the place?

I think it's pretty a reasonable development fo assume that she's suddenly developed a "shoot first" reaction to people showing up at her village armed with guns because of what she knows now. She's trying to stave off the inevitable by killing it first before it kills her.

It's definitely a Vixen power in the books; maybe her connection to the totem/web of life/Red deepened since we saw her, or they decided to splurge with some of their CG budget on the season premiere

I keep wanting to call Rip a backstabbing dick and then I realize, actually, he's right

The only issue is he's a massive hypocrite now because it's not like he was well known for keeping things tidy and stable

Rip being such a massive dick and just thinking they'd return to normal lives is awfully convenient, but I think Rip's last scene implicitly shows that Rip knew drat well they would become a team again and he just needed a way to save face with his co-workers.

Aruba-con is some next level punning.
