Linda is into Barry's nephew.

Barry isn't old enough to have a nephew.

Eventually, Linda is going to strenuously rob a cradle.

Oh right, I got my Flash LIs confused, it should be Iris West. Well, um... then I dunno.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

Don't worry, Linda Park was even in the pilot for the 1990 version too.

Paula Marshall played Iris West.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

I am so glad that they are bringing superpowers into the mix here. I hope that they can possibly blend the new DCCU (DC Cinematic Universe) into the new DCTU (DC Television Universe) for a full fledged DCLAU.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

I doubt that will happen SG. To smart a move. I will be happy if there are several loosely entertwined shows on the CW that create a shared universe. Arrow is a great start, hopefully Flash will add a second. I wouldnt mind a female lead in another series but as to who?? Star Girl maybe as she would skew towards the young female demographic, Power Girl comes to mind but her origin would need serious reworking, Hawkgirl would work for me as well.

Green Arrow is famous for social commentary. Berlanti, where the hell is my social commentary? The Queen family needs to go broke ASAP, so I can finally get my left wing socialist superhero!

PS, the kid who plays The Flash is awesome.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

Wow, great episode. I'm wondering if what happened to Gold at the end means we'll get a full on zombie Grundy later.
The reveal with Slade was great, I did not expect that at all.
The ending with Barry was pretty great too.
Roy doesn't have superpowers in the comics, does he?

Re: Arrow - Season 2

I am really interested to see where they take Roy's superstrenght. At least the wait is only about a month instead of a whole summer.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

I loved everything about that episode, even the cheesiness of finding an open box of rat poison lying around

I really liked the casual nature of Shado's death as well, usually in those situations either something happens to prevent it (I was expecting Slade to come and rescue her) or it's built as a really impactful thing but here it was just, 'boom', she's dead.

I also liked the three ghosts, and how the third one was Tommy, nice to see him again!

Was the three ghosts thing an intentional Dickens reference, this being a Christmas episode and all?

So Tommy was the ghost of Christmases yet to come... Holy shit, they're bringing back Tommy!

I was a little surprised when Ollie gave Roy CPR without any Mouth-to-Mouth action. Such a missed opportunity for fan(-girl)service!

Not really. I was an uncle when I was ten. A good friend has a nephew that is two years older than she is.
