More outstanding news: Matt Ryan is 100% coming back as Constantine for Season 3 of Legends. Just as a guest for now, but it sounds like they might be having him pop up on Arrow or Flash again this year too.

I'm quite happy they figured out a way to still have Rip on the show without shelving him or turning him into an outright villain again (knock wood).

But still, the line "Rip's hiding something from us" should be followed immediately with "What else is new? " by this point.

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.

Maybe being in Africa makes Amaya stronger.

Now as to why she's more ruthless?

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.

So, I kind of got distracted near the end of the episode, but that bit with Sara and the team laughing at the whole “Rip’s hiding something from us” trope means that everyone, the Time Bureau included, has no idea that the big bad of the season is even out there, right?

He's grown up so much!

A+ username/post combo.

Also the “real” reason that Ray/Sara/Mick got tagged as metas is that ARGUS has clearly gotten so corrupt and out of control in Zari’s timeline that they’re not above falsely labelling people as metas as an excuse to box them. That’s the way the scene played out to me anyway.

She and Sara are going to bang before the season's over.

I've been rewatching the first season of Arrow lately, and I'm kind of bemused by how Oliver and Sara basically entered this universe together and over the course of 10 years, their lives have diverged so wildly, yet both have ended up in kind of the same place this year.

Both of them are spending their time this year squaring off against an angry woman from an investigatory agency who want to shut them down for being vigilantes who ruin everything they touch, yet while Oliver's confrontations with his opponent consist of glowering at her in conference rooms, Sara just openly beats the poo poo out of her and tries to kill her by ramming her big giant space ship into Sharpe's even bigger giant space ship.

I love how Arrow has paradoxically become the weirdest of the CW shows purely because of how non-weird it is in comparison to the other three.

Am I the only one that thinks that Nate was doing some sort of 1980’s Patrick Bateman spiel talking about ambitious records, seminal works and favorite bands and whatnot?

Nah. When Bateman did that it was because he was a sociopath and was trying to keep his victims distracted by doing Normal Person things like talking about music, only because he’s so hosed up he over compensates and goes too far into crazy town on the other side of the spectrum.





Nate just really likes Billy Joel.

I'm going to have Return of the Mack stuck in my head for a week.

The best part of that whole sequence is that since Ray still had Dahrk's watch on the Waverider, the music was technically coming from nowhere, and yet Dahrk was clearly dancing along to it as he was loving everyone up with his magic. So that basically means we were hearing what was playing in Dahrk's head as he beat the poo poo out of the Time Bureau goons

The way Zari was describing it, Themyscira already was a warrior culture at the time when she dropped Helen off there. Me, I'm going with the implication that Diana is a descendant of Helen of Troy (and that Wonder Woman exists in the Arrowverse, because come on guys!)

And Teri Hatcher was Mon-El's mother, Queen of Daxam, during last season. Mon-El's dad was Kevin Sorbo.

And Laura Vandervoort (Supergirl on Smallville) showed up at the end of the first season as Indigo aka Female Braniac.

Me, I've been holding out hope for a while now that they get Michael Rosenbaum back in to play Lex Luthor on Supergirl. Especially because he's the right age now to play a proper Superman-era Lex.

EDIT: It's too bad Justin Hartley's tied up with This Is Us, because I'd love to see him show up on Arrow as somebody, like a one-off villain or something. Oliver Queen vs. Oliver Queen.

I love that Brandon Routh went from A-lister to lower but seems like he enjoys a single episode of LoT more then anything he's ever done before.

How long until they get a LoT episode where Dean Cain plays a caped superhero? Bonus points if they can get Teri Hatcher too.

Was he ever really an A-lister, though? I seem to recall it was a matter of "Meet the new guy playing Superman! ...Welp, he was a pretty good actor but the movie sucked, guess his career's dead now, womp womp." But it seems like he's recovered well enough now, especially with Legends doing as well as it is lately.

He just seems to be such a cool and fun guy to hang around. I listened to the cast commentary for Scott Pilgrim vs. the World when it came out and while it's already a fun listen, Brandon Routh kicks it up to another level. He just kind of crashes the commentary, almost like he wasn't invited and just showed up anyway. He comes in like 20 minutes into the movie fresh from a hamburger joint or something and is just a bundle of positive energy and him and Jason Schwartzman just have a blast together riffing off one another.

He is. Watch Alias, the man singlehandedly saved that show after it went irrevocably to poo poo. But he's also like 9 months past done with being on this show so I don't entirely fault him for phoning one in... even if this one one was destined to happen since the moment he signed on to the show.

That was my thought too. Though according to Brandon Routh actor availability for the crossover was kind of a madcap spinning plates situation where they could only have actors on the Waverider set for like 20 minutes before they had to run across town and film something else. So who know?

I'm sort of willing to give this one a pass because the majority of everyone's energy was focused on doing the crossover around that point. Still, if that one ends up being the worst episode of the season, then that's still pretty drat good for post-season 1 Flash.
