I'm not supporting this idiotic "rule", that's mr peasant. I'm calling him out for how stupid it is. See above posts.

I'm not saying you are. I'm agreeing with you and disagreeing with Mr Peasant.

Sure, it's an idiotic rule and an even worse name but the reason I'm calling it a "rule" is because that's part of it's actual name (as described on Wikipedia). It's what it's called so I don't ruddy have much of a choice. I mean, I can't very well be calling a guy named "Bob" "Ted" or Newton's "law of universal gravitation" a "guideline", right?

I find it more weird that those two never had a scene together and the photographer decided to take a picture of them.
I think they would've had a scene together back when dig was just a body guard that Oliver kept escaping from

Have they even met in the show? Has Thea met Felicity?

I've really liked Thea so far this season. I never really hated her but she seemed a bit unneccessary to the show. Nice scenes with her punching Roy and the reveal at the end of the episode.

More and more I think Thea has to become something, villain, hero, who knows. Ollie's Roy vs Malcolm's Thea could be fun.

I think Moira is going to die by season's end.

That will push Thea over the edge and she will probably leave for a while and leave Ollie all alone in Starling City for season 3.

What do you guys think about Thea turning into this show's version of Artemis over Speedy?

She's got the villainous father thing going on, and her voice actually kind of has a sound to it close to Artemis's.

But does the actress have the physicality to pull it off though? I think she's easily the skinniest of the actresses who've been on the show. And as this is the CW, that kind of says something.

I think we're going to have to be willing to suspend our disbelief with her. If so, it'll be fun to watch, because there are many here who won't do the same for Laurel.

I think that she's more like this shows version of Emiko from Jeff Lemire's current GA run. They're both Oliver's half-sister and the daughters (or adopted daughter in Emiko's case) of evil archers who are GA villains. Plus, they just introduced Moira and Diggle into the comics, so this theory makes even more sense.

I wasn't referring to that, which has more to do with atmosphere and other cinematographic trickery. Rather, I was thinking more about the physical feats and what not that the choreographers like to have the actors do.

While I'm not so naive as to think that the actors do all their own stunts, the regulars are certainly expected to perform a certain degree of them to allow for added authenticity.

I didn't see the twist coming, I think Thea will have choices to make this season and Malcolm will try to go all Palpatine on her, but in the end I see her ending up on Team Arrow.

I thought that twist might happen when Moira revealed to Thea and Ollie that she did have an affair with Merlyn.

Now that Thea is only Ollie's half sister he can make half advances towards her.

Yes, I was watching Serenity the other night and Summer does make a convincing badass. That's one of Whedon's numerous talents.

Then you've lost me somewhere on the 'suspension of disbelief'. For instance, if a scene requires Holland herself to do a back flip (or insert whatever other stunt of your choice) rather than a stunt double and she can't pull it off, no amount of suspension of disbelief is going to make a difference.

True. I think Glau has a background in ballet. And if you look at professional ballerinas, they frequently have very slight frames but are capable of incredible physical feats thanks to years of training and their resultant abnormal (i.e. different from the average person's) body composition (specifically: muscle-to-body-weight ratio).

I'm not sure... does Holland have a similar background? Because that would definitely open up the possibility of her playing a more action-oriented role.

What's hard to understand about it? People have complained in the past about not being able to believe that Laurel can or will become a capable fighter because she doesn't look like one (as opposed to her sister). However, I don't believe that criticism would extend to Thea, who looks even less like a fighter. Simple as that.

Not sure what cinematography or atmosphere has to do with that, which is what you referenced in your last post. Neither of those things are relevant to Thea's physique (or lack thereof) or suspected hypocrisy.

I never said skinny people couldn't fight. What I said was other people have said that because of how Laurel looks, they could never buy that she was a capable fighter.
