Haha, the gently caress is this poo poo?

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.

Cain and Hatcher have both done Supergirl which I'm pretty sure has cast every actor who played a DC character for the last 40 years. They're even digging into the Smallville cast now.

They're also going for the cartoons as well! They got the guy who played J'onn J'onzz on the Justice League cartoon (Carl Lumbly) to play the current J'onn's (David Harewood) dad.

I'm hoping that Kevin Conroy shows up in the Arrowverse at some point.

discworld is all I read posted:

Was it just me or did it seem super cold-blooded that Stein's plan is just to dump Grodd into napalm, especially against the comedic backdrop of being helped out by foppish Isaac Newton. I mean when he said "Gideon, I have a plan" I just assumed he meant something more like burning Grodd alive.

Ehhh. Grodd's plan involved starting a nuclear war and then became the chrono-genocide of humanity. Split second decision to dump his gorilla rear end into a napalm fire seems justified.

One thing that bothers me about Grodd is, can't he read minds? So why does he always think someone's betrayed him when they haven't?

On top of being a telepathic gorilla he's also a paranoid rear end in a top hat who will always jump to the worst conclusion.

Yes, it's a paradox on top of a time aberration, but this is Captain Lance and the Time Idiots and at that point in the discussion they likely rejected the idea of leaving the kid in Aruba (not gonna' happen Mick) or building a nanny-bot body for Gideon (actress isn't available more than once every 3 seasons.)

So, according to the Gugg the Waverider will be finding at least one person as a replacement for Firestorm and that it will be an established Arrowverse character.

I'm guessing the writers don'w want to open the door of the most obvious solution: Cloning.
They clone Amaya, send one back to live out the life she's supposed to live so time stays on course and the original Amaya stays on the Waverider and uses one of the other totems like Earth, Water (when they get it back) or the DEATH-TÍTEM!!!

Also Black Canary: Make a clone of Laurel (one that's not actually alive. Like, 3d print a dead body) and have Wally superspeed it in to replace her at the last moment.
Boom, you have Laurel on the Waverider, you get to keep Amaya on board, and you get wacky time travel hijinks.

I like the actress they got for Kendra (she has an amazing thousand-watt smile ) but at this point if they want to bring Hawkgirl back they should just get like the Hawkgirl of 2099 who's a Thanagarian and isn't connected the Vandal Savage/Reincarnation poo poo at all.

I didn't watch Arrow until at least after season 2, so it was more removed from Smallville for me. It is weird to think that Smallville wasn't that long ago, it always felt like a 90s genre action show like Buffy or Xena.

Don't insult Buffy and Xena like that. Both of those shows were actually enjoyable to watch.

Smallville is the Andromeda or Cleopatra 2525 of superhero shows.
