So we’ve got the biggest episode of Arrow yet, honestly that was not the case for me, it was an awesome episode but I think it could have worked better if not overhyped by the leads, next two episodes might be bigger, nonetheless the episode had something awesome going on: Tension, lots of tension in a good way Manu and Stephen owning the scenes.
Now I am seeing in tumblr some trends in the fandom that I really need to counterattack:
First, people saying the Ivo call OBVIOUSLY is all about Felicity, well I can end up being your buffon and I will take all the “told you so” that you can send, but to me it is supposed to make Ivo look like some short of Victor Fries to justify his means for himself, and it has nothing to do with Felicity. The show links are good as they are.
Second. people claiming that the low raitings show that the series is going down, no, that is not the case it is because of the hiatus, hiatus harms series like this, 3 weeks away then 2 weeks back then one week away, that schedule might have a lot to do with the low ratings. Arrow is as good as ever.
Third, Slade Wilson vendetta’s reason might be weak I give you that but you’re all forgetting a moment of brightness in the writing department, he kept the miracuru -mi mi miracule mikurunrun had to do it- before knowing about Shado’s death, he already was out of his mind, things work different for him than they do for us, wondering what will happen with Roy.
Four, Someone claiming that they were indifferent to Olie, Sara and Roy facing Slade…well they clearly don’t read the comics and it’s ok, but do not attack a part that give us four iconic characters dueling in a room.
