    I too liked the ep and I am really enjoying the flash forwards. I wonder if Laurel rejoins Earth 1 due to next season's big crossover.

    Although the concept was good, the execution was lacking in episode 18. Everything felt wooden, from the writing to the acting. Really, only the pay-off at the end, the flashforward with Laurel-2 in the future was something that made me go hell yeah.

    The season really felt like it was going somewhere plotwise for a while, but things have been feeling a bit random now. Hopefully, the last few episodes are going to make it about Oliver again. I know this show has become an ensemble cast show, but it's still called Arrow for a reason.

    The last two seasons of Blake's 7 were made without Blake. The comic strip Funky Winkerbean hasn't centered on Funky for many years. The soap opera The Guiding Light continued under that title for decades after the departure of the reverend character the show was named after. And so on.

    For that matter, I'm sure the Arrowverse will continue to be called that long after Arrow ends its run.

    That's fantastic for those shows. Doesn't mean I suddenly don't want Arrow to be about, you know, Arrow.

    Oh my gosh... John Diggle's stepfather's name... is Stewart? :lol: First the Earth-90 Flash mentions "your ring," and now this.

    And the leading robotics expert is Dr. Will Magnus, as in the creator of the Metal Men.

    I knew that name sounded familiar

    Can’t be John Stewart. He isn’t a architect.
    Also, Emiko should know that won’t kill him. You need to chop off his head.

    He doesn’t need to be.

    You also don’t name yourself after your step dad. Sure his father messed up but doesn’t mean you remove his name.

    Kind of a meh episode. Did like the Diggle stuff (Mainly because Diggle feels really sidelined these days) but with only a few episodes left, I expected this episode to be bigger, and it's a shame Dante is done. I was hoping he would make it to the end of the season.

    I got a funny feeling about Alena Whitlock.

    One, I think Dante was always a red herring; we learned a couple of episodes ago that he actually worked for Emiko now and not the other way around. So the story didn't really need him. Two, he was played by Adrian Paul, one of the blandest actors I've ever seen, so I won't miss him. Let's get more actors of the caliber of Ernie Hudson and I'll be happy.


    I get a funny feeling every time Alena and Felicity have a scene together, but I doubt it's the same feeling you're talking about... :devil:

    I can't think of a better actor to play John Stewart than David Ramsey. I'm actually hoping they show some guts and use COIE to fundamentally change everything we have seen, and have Diggle end up with a power ring, as John Stewart--similar to the character in the comics. He can always pop up on Flash every now and then.

    I was ready to not like this episode, and then the twist happened. That was a really good episode setting up the final two of the season. It was awesome to get Roy back in the present day as well.

    I figured out pretty early that Dinah and the others were putting on an act for the uniformed cop's benefit, since it was out of character for her to be coming down so hard on them. I didn't figure out what it was they were covering up, though.

    I am getting a little tired of how often these guys cover up homicides by members of their team, and how often they get away with it. I mean, Dinah committed two murders in her debut episode, but now she's the police captain. It is kind of hypocritical.

    If next season weren't the last one I would have quit watching this months ago. But I made it this far so I may as well finish it out. I almost quit last season. I really had no interest in Diaz. His whole character and story came out of nowhere making him more powerful than he had any right to be and this season only marginally improved on that. Even for a superhero show it stretches credibility lately.

    This was not one of the better episodes--until the end when it became interesting. Before that, it was a snoozefest.

    I was going to say this was a horrible filler episode...until the last 5 minutes. What a waste of all the rest of time.

    It was really nice to see Roy do the flips again, but could have done without the bloodlust angle.

    Still the episode itself was quite well executed, even though I don't see why they needed such an elaborate ruse since there were a few dozen nameless thugs there that could have killed those guards... :shrug:

    I was wondering why one of Team Arrow was being considered a a suspect given that blunt force trauma isn't their normally their style.

    Given that Ra's Al Gul would have been through them many times, why isn't he a bloodlusting animal? Is the lily stuff that Roy mentioned or does he just have better control?
