    If it helps, and I know it probably doesn't, I'm concerned!

    Well, I guess it's good to know that Flash remains consistent about one thing: Barry. Is. The. Worst. That said, no, Nora, you do NOT have to go back in time to talk to your father, much less continue to work with the guy who murdered your grandmother and is warning you that this approach has a negative effect. You screwed up; your father got mad; deal. Geesh.

    I woke up still annoyed about the Diggle's stepfather thing, so I although I mentioned it briefly in the live posting thread I guess I'll vent a bit here. I know that Arrow has a lengthy history of only introducing relatives when they are plot convenient, going all the way back to season 1. And I get that this show and most fans want to forget the second half of season four, and I'm completely with that feeling. If I could forget it, I would. And I know that this show isn't great with continuity. (In fact we could probably summarize the show as "dark lighting, lots of arrows, terrible with continuity.) But. This was still awful. At the end of season four, everyone was threatened by incoming nuclear bombs. This was a national military emergency. And now, three years later, we find out that Diggle had a personal tie with the current/former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff who was also a general in the United States Marine Corps and....didn't contact his stepfather because he only contacts his stepfather if things are really important? Are you really trying to tell me, Arrow, that this terrorist group is more important than a major nuclear attack on the United States? Yeah, no. Not to mention the not-so-small problem that Diggle briefly headed back to the army and ended up kinda massively needing some high powered legal/military help, and then ended up working for a secretive government military agency. This would have come up before. But since it did come up, why is only one stepson getting discussed here? Andy's been name dropped this season, so Arrow hasn't forgotten him. Andy's son is still somewhere around - presumably around 11/12 right now. Has this supposedly kindly stepfather who tried to protect Diggle's feelings just ignored the step-grandchild? There were other ways to get this stepfather back into the show - even as a military person - and name drop this last name of Stewart, Arrow, while still indicating that Stewart had kind feelings towards Diggle, explaining why Other Earth Diggle uses the name Stewart while wielding the Green Lantern ring. This wasn't it. Having Legends of Tomorrow episode that aired right before this one name drop Damien Darkh, reminding me of season four right before we plunged into this one, didn't help. As much as I appreciated the Green Lantern reference. AUUGH.

    This show has a real problem with mothers, doesn't it?

    So if you expand this thing you take out all the Canaries? Let's consider the benefits of that!

    "I'd prefer a round of golf to kidnapping and torture." Now I want to see these people playing golf by shooting the golf balls with arrows!

    "What is our next move?" Fill in time until the season finale, Diggle. PAY ATTENTION!

    Okay, the arrow shattering the arrow thing was kinda cool.

    Questionable lighting is NOT helping the prop situation, Arrow!

    Dude. You're on a comics book show. You KNOW you can never ever ever try to create a new life form, bacteria or not, near radioactivity of ANY KIND! What do you think, this is a world where science works normally?

    Wait. Oliver's partner is the stepson of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and NO ONE THOUGHT OF CONTACTING THIS DUDE DURING THE NUCLEAR WEAPONS THING A FEW SEASONS AGO? (sorry to bring up painful memories, folks) It was very nice of the bad guys to leave those two lots of useful tools!

    "We're captured. Probably going to die in here." Nah, it's not the season finale and you've got a good ten episodes to fill after that. You guys are good.
