Of course Ollies new dont kill policy doesnt apply to blowing up innocent Russian guards, which I thought was the only lame section in another very good episode.
Communism isn't forgiven. The slogan is, Death to the Stalinist peoples! Burt Reynold slaughtering Russians on Burn Notice, Natasha Romanoff's murderous career, the trainer on The Americans raping his own trainee, Hollywood knows some people are just bad.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

When Ivo talked about "Mirakuru," it sounded to me like the Super Soldier serum. I thought I was watching Agents of Shield for a moment.

Amanda Waller didn't look like Waller. She was much skinnier, younger, did I mention skinnier?

Ollie got it on with Isabel, albeit a quickie. Says Felicity, "What happens in Russia stays in Russia." I think that could've been done better. I always knew beneath that bitchy exterior was a woman who got the hots for Oliver.

Yeah, there was another weird Marvel crossover moment with something Felicity said during the episode, though it escapes my memory as to what it was now.

Mirakuru = Miraclo?

I thought we were warned about this last week?

Re: Arrow - Season 2

So, no one cares that Nightwing is coming to the show?

I've never seen any Nightwing, but I gather this is supposed to be a bat name. But, why not "Flittermouse?"

I am not sure if I like it. He is a favorite character of mine. But I worry they are going to change too much to fit him ainto the show. He is an adult former apprentice of Batman. Will they even mention that? I am not sure if I like the rumors of him being in the Superman/Batman movie either. I worry this is possibly getting too close to what Smallville did. Throwing in characters from the comics just to excite fans. But are hardly developed at all.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

Also I have looked around there has been no official confirmation of this. It seems like he "is in talks" to play Nightwing. Seems odd he would spill this before its a done deal. Maybe he is just publically pitching himself for the role. Whether on Arrow or the movie. It would not be the first time an actor has done that.

I'm excited. I can't wait to see what they do with Nightwing. I think it could be a neat way to have Batman exist in the Arrow universe but not be seen. He could be dead, retired, or otherwise engaged during the events of Arrow. And Nightwing might open the door to Oliver going to Gotham. I would like to see what Gotham would look like in the Arrow universe. Though more than likely he'll just revisit Bludhaven, which is cool too.

Blockbuster could make for a good Arrow villain.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

Really enjoyed this episode. It was nice to get an episode focused on Diggle, and we even got some big developments in the Deadshot storyline.
I'm curious to see what they're going to do with the Isabel and Olliver now that they've slept together.
I was a little surprised to see Olliver killing guards in Russia after making such a big deal about not killing for most of the season.
Lots of interesting stuff in the flashbacks.
As for Waller, she was closer to the New 52 version.

Wait, did Oliver express regrett toward Felicity that he couldn't be with her or was he talking about Laurel again?

Re: Arrow - Season 2

This happens to men a lot.

We step back because we think that the woman we are attracted to is a super woman who deserves a superman, so there's no point in even auditioning...

And then she picks a jerk loser who is going to steal from her and cheat.

...

Felicity can't be interested in Oliver... She just detests Isobel.

C'mon! You aren't the least bit curious how those Bose speakers on Felicity's desk will tie into Roy's mission?

Seriously, though, I'm happy their requisite product placement is shoved into a harmless mini-sode and not a prominent position on the show as, say, having Bose being the makers of Black Canary's sonic scream device. Digg using Bing to look up H.I.V.E. was intrusion enough.
