I know I shouldn't pre-judge, but I have a really hard time accepting Barry Allen as a 23 year-old, brunette pretty boy.
I have to agree. Even for a Smallville type casting, this seems pretty bad. Still, Arrow is awesome, so I'm hoping to be surprised and have this actor turn out to be a great Barry.

So you're saying Barry was never 23 and pretty?

Hell, even I was once 23 and pretty.

Well okay... Pretty, at least.

He gets his powers by breaking into a police lab and trying to cook up something for a frat party instead of being an actual trained investigator?

Sure, at one point Barry was 23, but traditionally Barry is an experienced lab technician before he gets his powers. Wally was the Flash who started in his early twenties.

Re: Green Arrow (CW)

Here's the official WB released character description they had in the CBR article:
"BARRY ALLEN is a Central City assistant police forensic investigator who arrives in Starling to look into a series of unexplained robberies that may have a connection to a tragedy in his past. A comic book fan boy, Barry is obsessed with the Arrow unaware that working with Oliver and Felicity to solve the crime has brought him right into the dangerous world of the vigilante."

But this Barry doesn't have his powers yet. I assume at 23 this Barry had been a lab tech for a couple of years. While not a jaded, grizzled vet he has some experience.

While Wally took the name Flash in his twenties, he's one of the more experienced heroes, having been one since he was about ten years old.

At actor is 23 but where does it say that Barry Allen is going to be 23?

Well the claws are kind of cheesy but they do fit into the Arrowverse so I will go with it.

Dylan Neal Joins as DC’s Dr. Anthony Ivo

Appearing in Oliver (Stephen Amell)’s island flashbacks, ‘Arrow”s incarnation of Dr. Anthony Ivo will emerge as a brutal but ruthless scientist who will stop at nothing to unearth a breakthrough that dates back to the latter days of World War II. Neal’s Ivo will appear in a four-episode arc beginning with episode 5, “League of Assassins,” with the potential to recur in later installments.

Those familiar with DC comics will recognize Anthony Ivo as the creator of the power-mimicking “Amazo” android, as well as a villain in his own right with both a paralyzing fear of, and a desire to conquer death. Neal himself has a long list of TV and film credits, among which were previous CW appearances on ‘Smallville‘ as Metropolis DA Ray Sacks.

"I like having you inside me."

Even the most conversationally awkward person in the universe would never say that.

That and walking in on Laurel...

Then breaking in on the family...

She's subtly introduced herself as the new girlfriend to the exgirlfriend and the entire family, and forced Oliver to think about having sex with her. That's some dark psy ops shit there.

If one or most of those bits happened on purpose, Felicity is playing the long game to marry a billionaire.
Look, I'ma let us all get back to the S2 tread in a moment, but I gotta say that this has to be one of Guy's best posts of all time - OF ALL TIME! The notion of Felicity deliberately planning to set herself up as Ollie's little-sister-ish Girl Wednesday only to scoop him up and seduce him several seasons down the road when he realizes that no one, even Laurel, can ever get him like she does is so hilarious I'd genuinely love to see it actually happen. "Some dark psy ops shit there" indeed.

Bonus points will be given if, right after they both take off their shirts, she breathes: "Yes... I am the Mandarin" before they lay on top of each other and the scene fades to black.
