Any bets on who shot Malcolm Merlyn?

Unless there's something in a trailer you've seen, not sure what you're asking. Thea pulled the trigger at the end of the episode, no confirmation on whether she actually shot Merlyn though.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

You know how ridiculous it is that he would turn up now in that costume?

Dark modern regular clothes, light armour, and a number of machine guns is what he should be carrying into a warzone.

Either this show is crap or Thea has had a psychotic break.

Aside - whoa, I didn't realize that his island lackey Anatoli IS KGBeast from the comics. Also that he's played by David Nykl, best known to genre fans (until now?) as the Czech science nerd Zelenka, lackey to chief science nerd Rodney Mackay from Stargate Atlantis..!
Whoa, why do these people bother with masks when a fake beard can make you completely unrecognizable...
I keep checking IMDB for the show and I keep seeing that David Nykl is Anatoli, but through some kind of cognitive dissonance on my part, my brain doesn't accept it's him.

In other words, I feel like Dory from Finding Nemo:

First episode with him: "Ooh, who plays Anatoli? David Nykl? No, it can't be..."

Next episode: "Ooh, why plays Anatoli? David Nykl? No, it cant' be..."

and so on, until here we are, with the penultimate episode and I'm still not believing it's him.

I have the same issue with Burn Goram in both Pacific Rim and Game of Thrones, where I can't seem to reconcile either of those roles with him being Owen in Torchwood. Cue the Dory-like reaction of me continuing to think the actor looks familiar, looking it up, shaking my head, and then forgetting until the next time I see him.

Now, John Barrowman is the exact opposite of this phenomenon. At this point, what ever character he's playing becomes "John Barrowman playing Malcolm Merlyn" or "John Barrowman playing Jack Harkness."

Well, nearly all the secondary characters introduced over the course of this season have been killed off... Assuming Slade is finished off next week, plus a couple more, we have a nearly clean slate to introduce new people for what will likely be a Russia-based arc for the show..?
Considering the theme of this season, I'm betting that Olliver will be able to cure Slade without having to kill him.
I can't figure out why I believe this, but I thought it was revealed that Malcolm was revived after "Sacrifice" with something like Mirakuru. There's something to him beyond League of Assassins training that gives him an edge. Even in "Streets of Blood," he's the only one shown to actually stand a chance against one of Slade's mirakuru-aided soldiers. Everyone else uses some kind of incendiary or, in Felicity's case, a van, to deal with a mirakuru-aided soldier.

That would make Starling about the size of Milwaukee. Seems fine to me. Not every city's a New York.
And after last season's issue with the earthquake machine, it's possible there was an exodus. New Orleans still hasn't returned to it's former population size since Katrina.

Summer looked good without the mask in the outfit but I wasn't a hater with the mask.

Oh I misread the look of suprise on her face at the end. I didn't catch her pulling the trigger and thought the shots came from behind her.

My 10-year old son had the same reaction. It's not a bad costume, but the mask...oh the mask!

Re: Arrow - Season 2

This was a great episode. I can definitely see what the meant about the end of the season being epic.
I had no idea that was David Nykl as Anatoli or that he was a pre-existing comics character. He never even seemed slightly familiar to me, honestly.
I do agree that the mask for Isabel is just bad. I understand they are going for the Ravager look from the comics, but I'm thinking that might be one that just doesn't work in live action.

Really Isabel just needed something over the eyes like what Sara wears but half black & orange.

They should have just gone Dread Pirate Roberts with it.

Summer Glau is too gorgeous to wear a mask especially a silly one like she has. Some paint around the eyes is good enough.
