Honestly the more I hear about Season 8, the less I’m interested. Yes, I want to see the returning guest stars. Yes, I want to see more of Oliver and Diggle’s bromance. But nothing else interests me, and it’s not even about the lack of Felicity/EBR.
I wonder if it’s because it feels like so much of the show’s promotion is about the crossover, more so than the other Arrowverse shows. And that has nothing to do with the season setting it up. I just feel like it’s so much of “tease about a character returning in unexpected way,” 4 things about COIE — without actually saying anything, “tease about character returning in unexpected way,” 6 comments about COIE, “yes, we are bringing in adult JJ after setting it up last season,” 5 more comments about the crossover, “yes, we’ve promoted an actor to series regular,” more talk about COIE, etc.
I feel like the only new information we really got was that S8 picks up a week (or a few weeks? I saw conflicting tweets) after the finale.
Also, regarding comments about Oliver’s “death”/ending from today, I saw something about MG I think saying people are thinking X or Y and it’s Z and I hope he doesn’t consider Z to be living in a paradise dimension with Felicity just because that’s something everyone who isn’t going, “Oliver’s really actually dead!” has guessed.
