BkWurm1 December 2, 2015 Share December 2, 2015 Another moment I liked: Felicity being all "You can't play with the toys!" to Cisco. 'Cause sometimes Cisco is ridiculously territorial, and it was funny to see him on the receiving end of that. I also enjoyed how they worked again to differentiate between Cisco and Felicity's strengths. Cisco is first and foremost about the engineering. Sure, her sat connection crashes every once and awhile but she can work around it. But if only she'd read the specs and used the copper wire, she wouldn't be having that problem. I thought the episode was solid and a lot of fun despite a few disappointments over the road not taken (aka not having Cisco perv - er um - crush on Kendra - seriously I like Cisco but toooooo young. He and Thea would be cute though) I think we are seeing remnants of Barry's crisis of confidence since his run in with Zoom and hence his gut instinct to go get some help. Loved protective Oliver showing up there for a little bit. He's been pretty even tempered this season so seeing his bark coming out because of legitimate concerns was enjoyable but equally enjoyable was the tempering role that Felicity played in taking the tension down a notch. I'm really enjoying how well they balance each other out. Oh and some pointed out that Diggle kind of vanished for a while. If I recall, David Ramsey was experiencing a back problems around this time still. I loved the vibe at the loft with all everyone gathered and chilling with some jazzy music playing in the background. I bet Oliver had something scrumptious cooking up in the oven too. Oh and all that freaking out over the contents of Felicity's glass seems really overwrought. Not saying they won't still go there but I seriously don't think there was any intent to send a hint out in that scene. Everyone was drinking different stuff. Kind of funny that despite his seeming cool, Oliver was feeling stressed enough to drink. I was happy that Vandal Savage did not break in to the new Lair. Malcolm is one thing, he always shows up, but lets keep the location of the Arrow Cave quiet from the big bads for at least a season. The penthouse has already been broken into a couple times (Thea kind of bled out on the floor - it's ok, they got a rug) and the window repair man has to get work from somewhere. What I found very interesting about that scene was the part where when everyone peeked over the balcony, there was nothing but a ten floor drop. Made me laugh since last year Thea peaced out but jumping off the balcony. At the time I assumed there was another one beneath her but nope! So maybe Thea is also secretly a Hawk girl with insta wings? Hilarious. Could the team please stop letting people who are being target by either kidnappers or killers just wander off outside to "get some air" or space or whatever. Of COURSE that's when someone shows up and grabs them. Felicity was right. The word "lovers" never doesn't sound creepy. Again, I like CIsco but I'm not even feeling bad for him re Kendra because did anyone really think he had a shot? I know, I know, he's not really nine. Maybe if he did cut his hair. (and his conditioner was not that much on point) Going back to the opening fight scene in Star City, Damian Dahrk was hilarious as always. It's always great to see a man enjoying his work. Nit pick. When DD tried to drain Oliver's life force, I'm pretty sure that it's Barry's fault that Oliver almost died since if Barry hadn't whisked away his back up, DD wouldn't have had so much time to try and kill him ( I was especially expecting Thea to save him) Also, how about grabbing the chemical weapon too while you're at it Barry? I loved the music that Vandal Savage got when he took out everyone at the docks. Good scene too. Tad impractical to waste time killing everyone but he seemed intent on brushing up on his skills after three weeks just sitting on his arse. Jumping to Central City. I like Jay in the beginning and I still think he has potential but I don't know what they are doing with him right now. Obviously we are not getting the whole story but not having those details are really messing with his characterization. I am SOO sick of him being called a coward. But also sick of him just waling away without explanation. I LOVED when Patty followed Wells back to Star Labs and cheered when she shot him only for everyone to react like she was a puppy that peed on the floor. Sigh. Really hoping she's not going to let this one go. TELL HER!!! At least about the mutli verse thing. Speaking of the multi verse stuff, nice moment watching everyone's heads explode when they find out about parallel worlds was fun. Watching Barry struggle with all the change coming at him was a nice awww moment. Funny how the scientist is struggling to adapt more than the laymen. Oliver not needing much convincing about the truth of past lives and flying former Egyptian priestesses was wonderful. Dude has seen stuff. That last scene in the bright sunny JItters was jarring, not for the kid reveal but just the part that they were there for coffee reminding each other that they still have to deal with VS. Yes, I know that. You two dawdlers don't really seem to know it though, killing time getting java. My fan wank was they were stopping to stock up with welcome to CC coffee for when they met the private jet. So yeah, part one of the cross over went really well. SO many great character moments. Looking forward to tomorrow night. 5 Link to comment
