Well, the character was originally created as the girl Oliver Queen was cheating on Laurel with when the yacht went down (my, how far she's come). So she's always been implicitly bi, and the producers apparently realized they'd been riding too heavily on her interest in women, so they've been trying to re-establish her bisexuality this season. (Like in "Crisis on Earth-X," when Quentin's Nazi doppelganger asked how she could support the rebels, she said "Because I like men, and I like women.")
They actually still had a Jitters sign in that scene. My guess is that Jitters is their universe's equivalent of Starbucks. It's not uncommon for franchises to have similar lay-outs in each of their stores.
This episode actually bored me to tears. The only thing that I enjoyed was Mick's behavior, which is fast becoming the funniest thing of the show.
Yeah, that's kind of what I was assuming. Although it would have to be SC Jitters instead of CC.
I think I remember either seeing the characters in a Jitters or at least references to them going to Jitters in Arrow.
I really enjoyed this one, I'm a huge fan of Matt Ryan's Constatine so I got a big kick out of seeing him interact with the Legends. Him and Sara hooking up was a fun little surprise.
The girl playing young Nora must be a gymnast or something, because some of those contortions she did during the exorcisms were crazy.
I was not surprised the girl was Nora, as soon the description mentioned a mysterious person John was trying to help, I figured it would be one of the Darhks.
John Noble really does creepy well. Have we heard if he's going to appearing in the season at all, or will he just be doing the voice?
Usually it's Big Belly Burger that's their go-to multi-city franchise in the Arrowverse. (Although I think it existed in Powerless's world too.)
That was probably a stunt double in those shots. And there was probably some VFX help too.
No word on that yet. Although Mallus did say here that the Legends will soon witness his true form, which could be hinting at an on-camera appearance for Noble, although it seems more likely that they'd go for something more monstrous-looking.
Maybe it's like KFC outside of Kentucky (even though they claim the initials don't mean anything now).
Well, that was more about downplaying the "Fried" part so as not to scare off health-conscious consumers. Harland Sanders had already franchised his recipe nationwide before the restaurant name was coined; it was chosen to evoke a sense of Southern down-home cooking (although Sanders did start out in Kentucky). The Wikipedia article says that the Kentucky name would would seem "exotic" to most American consumers, although it never did to me, since Kentucky's right across the river.
I'm glad this show is back. That was a rather long hiatus. So the whole effort to try to save Nora was fruitless since Damien Darhk came to take her in the end. What's the point of having Snart around for only a couple of episodes?
I wonder if we'll ever get to see John Noble. I hadn't seen or heard from him since Sleepy Hollow. In fact, the last time I saw him on TV was alongside Tom Mison, Katia Winter, etc. at the San Diego Comic Con. I forget which year it was.
He was the villain in the season premiere of THE LIBRARIANS this year. I actually expected him to be the Big Bad of the season, but he only stuck around for the two-hour season premiere.
he's been in 3eps of the current season of LoT but in case of heard but not seen.
He's doing the voice of Malleus.
Knew he'd been in one the Bertlanti shows recently but had to use IMDB to confirm.
I presume it's a matter of Wentworth Miller's availability. Although it was suggested a while back that he'd be appearing in a Flash episode too at some point, though I'm not sure if that's been confirmed. It would make sense if he did, since he'd need Cisco's help to get back to Earth-X.
Happy Beebontines Day!
To go back to the Jitters discussion, I just watched episode 10 of this season of Arrow, and at one point Felicity came into the lair with a coffee cup with a Jitters logo on it.
Just click it, you'll thank me.
Constantine will be coming back for episode 15 of this season, Necromancing the Stone. It sounds like there's a possibility he might be in at least one more, but that's the only one we know of for sure.
CW is expanding its programming to Sundays from next season, giving them more room to juggle all the shows:
I don't think this schedule expansion decision will have any effect on the network's reluctance to risk oversaturation by having more than four superhero-comic-book-based series airing simultaneously.
I suspected that before this was announced. The surprise that he is not in next week's episode after originally reported he would be in two. I was going to post Monday that maybe he will be back later in the season and forgot to do it. They certainly seem to set up him having a role in freeing Sarah of being possessed. Though that scene between John and Ray at the end made me wonder if that advice was setup in case Matt Ryan was unable to return.
