Thea has been there since the pilot so this is hardly news...
How soon we forget.
Emiko comes from the comics, so her existence in the show is not entirely the fault of it's writers. It amazes me how quickly they've brought stuff over from the comics in the modern adaptations, for long time it seemed like the adaptations pretty much stuck to stuff that had been in the comics for ages.
Comics have been soap operas forever.
It took only about a year for Batgirl/Barbara Gordon to be adapted from comics to screen after her debut (leading to the myth that she was conceived by the TV producers). And Batman: The Animated Series adapted Bane less than 2 years after his comics debut. But those are the exceptions.
I would say that they butchered Bane less than 2 years after his debut. It was poor reflection of the comic book character and story. It is one of the few places where the animated series seriously disappointed me.
^I wasn't addressing the quality of the adaptation, merely pointing out that it was done.
I didn't like this episode as much as last week's, which is one of the best the show has ever produced. I did like this week's episode mainly because they introduced Emiko Queen. Emiko is one of my favorite characters from the Jeff Lemire New 52 run. Here's hoping they handle Emiko better than they did Komodo (a villain that could've been a season long or at least half-a-season long big bad, but was only given an episode). I've long wondered if they would put Emiko on the show, but wasn't sure they would since they already had Thea and she was an archer as well. I am glad they did. I'm looking forward to seeing how they explain more about who she is and how she came to be (to borrow a little from The Batman). Who is her mother, who trained her, etc?
I also like that they are going down the path to Felicity as a future villain. If they really pull that trigger she would be a very dangerous enemy for Team Arrow since she knows them all so well. And they would be reluctant to fight her. Making her bad, and making it stick, would be very risky, and could potentially shed viewers, so I am doubtful that her walk on the dark side will be long, and might just be dipping a few toes in the water.
That's hilarious. In the scene at the end of 'Slabside Redemption', Diggle was behind Felicity, but in the next wide shot he was missing. Well CW went back and added him into the shot after it aired.
How is that hilarious? Fixing errors post-release is far from unprecedented in publishing and filmmaking, and it's gotten easier than ever to do it in the digital age. I've had a couple of errors in e-books I've written corrected after publication, since it's possible to upload the corrections to already-purchased books. In print editions, errors in the first edition are often corrected in later releases; I've had that happen a couple of times too.
I meant it looks bad.
His shadow doesn't even line up with the buildings.
I didn't realize those two first appeared in comics so close to their first onscreen appearances.
Now that the crossover is over, I'm excited to get back to the main storyline. Looking forward to January.
So is this MacGuffin chase Lyla seems to be on going to ultimately lead her to that orb thingy?
Sister! Olly has another...Sister!
So Ollie is now also the World's Greatest Detective?
