Re: Arrow - Season 2

Ok, putting this in the right thread now:

Alex Kingston Returning to Starling City

also

Now that The Flash is getting its own pilot rather than a backdoor one, “Episode 20 will just be an episode of Arrow” — which has actually turned out to be a blessing, Kreisberg admitted. “[A backdoor pilot] actually made it a little bit harder because we were going to have to take a right turn [from] where we were in our ongoing story to incorporate that.” Although Barry may no longer be getting his own episode toward the end of the season, viewers will still hear “about what happened to him in the way that you’re hearing now about Star Labs on the periphery, and certainly in terms of Felicity since she has a connection with him,” revealed Berlanti.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

Nice little nod with the chemicals and the lightning storm. haha

The guy who played Barry didn't impress me at first but I slowly warmed up to him and by the 30-minute mark I was sold. He'll make a good Barry Allen/Flash.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

Pretty nice show tonight, good pace and action. The more than human element brought in was nice as was Barrys story about the tornado like blur that killed his mom. Zoom anyone?
I can see this guy as Barry but for the Flash well I will need to see the costume to really be sold.
Why is Felicity hotter with glasses than without or is that just me?

Re: Arrow - Season 2

Terrific episode. I'm so-so on Barry but I did like the nod to the chemicals and the lightening storm too. Someone on another board posted that when Roy talked about his own team, he wondered if that was supposed to be a nod towards The Teen Titans. Brother Blood is supposed to be a Teen Titans villain, right?

Re: Arrow - Season 2

Smoakin' Hot! Yeah, the actor playing Barry certainly looked like he could be John Wesley Ship's son. Great episode, about half way through when Barry makes his speach about searching out other "unbelievable cases" I half expected a cross over scene with Agents of Shield, lol.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

Grant Gustin played a youthful and inquisitive Barry Allen, and the actor reminded me a lot of Andrew Garfield's Peter Parker persona. Must be the hairstyle.

Brother Blood, STAR Labs, Professor Ivo, Cyrus (Gold), Barry Allen. The series is looking more and more like the DCU.

That would be in line with the origin Geoff Johns gave Barry during Flash Rebirth. Personally, I was not happy to see it incorporated, as before, the Flashes were the antithesis of the brooding/"my parents are dead" characterization. Barry's parents were alive up until about 5 years ago when Johns added the retcon about Zoom going back in time to kill his mother.

It's not just you and it's not just the glasses (though they don't hurt), I think it's also having her hair pulled back. That whole look really works for me.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

^ I dont think Barry would be considered brooding as we saw him portrayed in this episode, merely inquisitive and driven. I really did not feel any "darkness' around the character at all.
Still I agree in the comics this was not needed even though Zooms of one sort or another killed his mother and Iris(yes I know not really but it seemed that way at the time)

Re: Arrow - Season 2

That was awesome. Loved the fight choreography, I thought Barry was really cool. I liked how the island story and the present-day story meshed together. I liked having Moira out of prison as well and interacting with the various cast. Surely it was a bit sloppy of Malcolm to let slip where he's been, and is Ra's Al Ghul really that easy to contact, or did Moira have some special avenues of communication?

Oh yeah, almost forgot that part. Moira is one bad mutha. Don't mess with her.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

Just had a thought. Barry's story about his mother's death implies that Professor Zoom may be responsible. To take that further, does that also imply time travel?
