Re: Arrow - Season 2

That is a shitty mask. At least in that pic. I want a mask, but they need to work on it some more. Meh, maybe it will look better on screen.

Katrina Law cast as daughter of R'as al Ghul but not Talia al Ghul

Spartacus alum Katrina Law has been tapped to play Ra's al Ghul's other progeny, Nyssa al Ghul, on Arrow, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively

^Well didnt see that coming. This show sure is pulling out the bad guysand I heartily approve. This is the kind of DC universe expansion I wanted to see on Smallville for 7 years. Thankfully these writers get it.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

Well I was half right.

I didn't subscribe as much to the Summer/Talia theory because I still think it's Yao Fei/Shado, perhaps now more than ever. Jade and Law even look a bit alike.

I did think though that they were going to keep it in the cast just because it's getting so big, especially with the women. This show is quickly becoming Ride of the Valkyries.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

My first reaction upon seeing the mask was that it was dumb and unnecessary, that the face paint is much cooler and no less revealing. Then it occurred to me that the mask is basically the same as Banderas' Zorro one (minus the head-covering kerchief), and I made my peace with it. There's really as much Zorro in this show as there is in Batman, which I definitely dig.

Awesome thing for the cast to do.
That is cute, yeah, but I hope the kid isn't actually watching the show!

Re: Arrow - Season 2

I don't mind the mask, I always thought the makeup thing was a little weird. The article I read said that there is a specific story reason why he starts using the mask. I'm wondering if maybe somebody gives it to him, or if he makes it out of something important to him.

The costume from Smallville looked like a punk going to a rave for a night of ecstasy overdosing.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

Well another good one in the books for Arrow. Did not see the return of Merlyn coming but the daughter thing was pretty easy as soon as the fling was mentioned. They really are good at cramming a whole lot of stuff into an hour show.
Was not happy with the death of Vertigo since thats two weeks in a row the non killing idea went out the window. Of course Blood could always bring him back I suppose.
Has Felicity learned her lesson to stay in the Arrowcave yet?

Re: Arrow - Season 2

Malcolm Meryln! I definitely wasn't expecting him to return and I too though Moira was going to get killed off. But I'm glad I'm wrong on both counts. His connection with Rha's and the fact that superpowers are being brought into Arrow pretty much guaranteed his return. Thea being Malcolm's father I expected after the affair info was brought up. I don't know how I feel on that.


Really good episode once again. They pack a lot into a single hour and we have villains all over the place. It's too bad we lost The Count. He was fun tonight and it was a nice nod to continuity to have him be the guy who let out The Dollmaker. I was glad that Oliver was forced to kill him. His conversion from vigilante to hero is not going to be an easy one.


Once again the Starling City PD show that they have failed this city and should be wiped out, save for Lance. TWICE they have concealed that a dangerous inmate escaped from jail during the destruction of The Glades. The first one being a serial killer who targeted women and the second being a murderous druglord. Well done, guys. I think it's time for Oliver and Felicity to expose these jokers.


Then again, the Starling City District Attorney's Office might be just as bad, considering they thought it was a good idea to let Laurel help prosecute Moira. I know, I know, it's only a TV show but that kind of stupidity is hard to pass up. The writers continue to do the Laurel character no favors with the storylines they put her in and Oliver not being mad at her in the end annoyed me. Laurel remains the worst part of this show.


Good stuff on the island front.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

I thought that Merlyn was due for a return. Then sure enough...

Of course Thea and Ollie are only half brother and sister. They don't look alike.

Poor Laurel. How will she face the Queens and Moira after all that?

Re: Arrow - Season 2

I actually kinda saw Merlyn's return coming after the verdict. That doesn't mean I wasn't happy to see him. Barrowman is always a joy to see on screen.

Yeah, it's too bad that Count Vertigo had to die, but I did enjoy the fact that Oliver was forced to choose between his vow and saving the life of his friend. I'm glad the writers understand this won't be an easy path to walk. Then again they did just mention Ra's Al Ghul, and will be introducing super powers soon. Death may wind up having the same revolving door it does in the comics. Somehow I doubt that they would let one of Green Arrow's archnemeses expire so easily and so early in the show.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

So, is that as close to boxing arrows as we'll get?

Also, wtf, why didn't Ollie alert the police when he found Vertigo's lab location? Sloppy.
