OK - I waited through the weekend so everyone could catch up on their DVRs and such to review the season 3 premiere of Arrow. My initial review - Holy Crap!
This season comes out of the gate swinging. It is a roller coaster of getting everything you ever wanted to see on the show and then having it yanked from our grasp.
Oliver is going to get his company back! Nope. New guy Ray Palmer swoops in and steals the company (and tries to steal Felicity.)
BTW - Porcupine farts. What fantastic revenge... I love Felicity so much.
In other plot points, we get a small peek into the Hong Kong flashbacks and begin to understand why Oliver hates Whaler so much - she is one manipulative B*.
And Diggle's baby is born, and the new dad is all mush and muscles.
It is always fantastic to have Peter Stormare on any show - he is a spectacular villain. Bringing him in as the new Count Vertigo was a bit of a disappointment - as was the more-than-blatant rip-off of the Scarecrow formula from Batman Begins. But, we did get a great Ollie vs. Arrow fight sequence out of it, so I'll let it slide.
And.... then she is killed.
Yup. Really truly dead.
Three black arrows to the chest and a several story fall off a building.
Who killed her? Why was she back in Starling city?
This show seems to be only getting better and will keep you guessing where it is going next - and I am so along for the ride!
