Stephen Amell is really growing in the role. His reactions to Tommy in the hospital were great.

This show is really impressing me. I think its getting better with each episode.
I disagree. Stephen Amell was impressive from the first episode and the primary reason the show works at all. And I say this even though my true love is Susannah Thompsom.

Ollies mom sure is a piece of work and right now I cant see her making it through the season.
I really hope they don't kill her off, she's a great character and Susannah Thompson is one of the shows best actors, it would be crazy to write her out this early.
Yes, but they've been very sparing with her character, to the point we don't really know her. In that sense she's already written out.

If they do not kill the character her role will have to be changed. I can not see the current status of Moria trying to undermine, kill Malcolm, why hiding it from her kids lasting too long. Also its going to be equally implausible for the Queens to become one big happy family when all this is revealed to Oliver and Thea. Not to mention the bigger issue of Oliver's own secret. If she survives the show will be radically different next year.
Moira is against the Undertaking, and so is Oliver. So technically they have that grounds for reconciliation. But on the other hand, for a family member to kill people bent on evil while deceiving the rest of the family? I don't see how Oliver can forgive Moira for that!

Soon, everyone in Ollie's life is going to know he's the vigilante. The show is moving things along pretty fast.
Half the show is the island story and it's moving pretty slowly I think. There's not much dramatic choice in that, Oliver either bulks up or dies. That's a no-brainer, so who's really all excited about wondering whether Ollie is a boob?

But this Chloe is sensible enough not to fall in love with Clark.
I'm guessing since I haven't seen Smallville, but if Laurel is Chloe and Oliver is Clark, then you've forgotten the character development mantra, which is that people change, radically, for no reason at all, rather rapidly, even though they may change right back. Laurel/Tommy is refreshingly believable, but the demands of open-ended serialization are merciless. It appears they had a fairly good idea where they wanted to go, but I suspect they've not been able to look ahead to season two.
The people of this country need regime change here, not abroad.
