Default Episode 8: Vendetta - Discussion/Rate & Review Thread

Everything has been set up nicely for what is essentially the second part of The Huntress arc.

From the looks of the trailer China White will finally see some bigger action and we'll see Helena's switch to a crossbow.

VIDEO-CLick to Watch!:

Hopefully Helena will ask Ollie "why don't you start wearing a mask?" and he replies "yeah good idea" and puts one on...lol

When this thing airs, I will watch this with Muse of Fire to see if it feels like a Huntress movie.

Felicity is so freakin hot and I'm guessing the second book is people Ollie will have to protect from the Dark Archer.

This episode was so much better than last week's.

Stephen and Jessica's chemistry as Ollie and Helena was also a lot better, not to mention that Stephen's acting and delivery this episode was a lot more natural and less stiff. And I loved that scene between him and Digg, especially when he laughed at the very end. He seems to be a lot more comfortable in the role now.

Next week looks like it's going to be good!

Where the poll be at?

Not as thrilled with this Ep as I was expecting to be.The episode still seemed a bit top-heavy in favor of the soap stuff.What action we had was good.Kelly Hu still getting "blink and you'll miss it" detail.

I wonder where Huntress is going from here?Gotham?

I kind of like how china white is maintaining more of a background presence, she's not in the foreground, but she's still present on a fairly regular basis, making her role sort of a slow burn, she'll hang around in the background for a while until all the sh** building up boils over, and hopefully it'll culminate in a big china white centric episode.

Much better episode than last week's, but Helena stole this one here. Like last week, there were no island flashbacks, but Oliver went to the grave of Dinah's sister to show Helena what he went through.

This part was about Helena's transition into the revenge-driven Huntress. As last week saw their love, this week saw their falling out over justice and revenge. I think Huntress' purpose is to show Oliver what happens when one goes too far and may rethink his crimefighting approaches. Diggle did a great job in keeping Oliver straight and narrow. It's unbelievable when Helena wears a mask and Oliver doesn't. They need to get Oliver to wear a mask soon.

The double date with Oliver, Dinah, Merlyn, and Helena went bad as they each have their dramas. While Merlyn apologizes to Dinah about his jealousy and resentment, Helena broke up with Oliver. This was another foreshadowing of Oliver and Dinah and Oliver learns about Merlyn's money being frozed up by his father and may give Merlyn the job of working for his family's company.

I guess there's no room for two vigilantes in Starling City. Helena could go to either Gotham or Bludhaven, but I'm looking more at the latter since they mentioned it early in the series. If and when she shows up again, I can see them picking up where they left off in being on opposite sides.

Didn't really like Vendetta. The actress who played Huntress actually got worse. She was awful. She even dragged down Amell (though there were some instances of shoddy acting on his part that can't be blamed on her). The soap opera stuff was, as usual, uninteresting and annoying to sit through. On the plus side, Oliver and Diggle really have a good thing going. They're always a joy to watch.

I thought this was the most enjoyable episode so far this season, everything flowed nicely and worked well together. Found it silly Oliver thinks Helena should wear a mask while he doesn't. And it seemed they are setting up Diggle with his ex sister-in-law, wouldn't be surprised if they already have secret feelings for each other.

One thing that bothered me was the events from the dinner to the storming of Helena's father's house was confusing. Oliver sees that Diggle is right about Helena's thirst for revenge and he sees that after she breaks up with him? Not after he sees her murder all those Triad members. Weird editing, if they switched those scenes around it would've made a lot more sense.

Definitely agree, they need to keep geoff johns away from writing. His dialogue doesn't translate well to tv.

Also like how they introduced the goggles from applied sciences, something tells me oliver will be using those.

It still bothers me that Oliver is okay with killing foot soldiers while keeping the big bad alive to face justice.

Yeah, it was odd for Oliver to tell Helena to wear a mask when he doesn't. They need to give Oliver a mask soon.

Yeah... that's a possibility for sure!


Anyway, got around to watching the episode and pacing is brilliant- much better than the last one which meandered quite a bit around the mushy parts. Dig's dialogue deliveries and his confidence in the role are almost a joy to watch! Even Stephan's gotten a lot better compared to when he started out and has grown on me.

This certainly was a better episode than last weeks. It was nice seeing Ollie showing some emotion and being generally happy/witty and not just throwing on a facade.

Helena was also better this episode but jeez they need to give her a better costume. Her current costume or past costume is not hard to adapt even though they want to use the fact that she went through an exposed stomach phase as an excuse. And if you dont want to give her a cape then just done do it but dont do the trench coat.


They really need to find out what they want to do with Merlyn and Dinah since thus far they are the weakest links in this show.

When she appears later on they should tweek her outfit bit by bit as she's staring out right now. Same with Oliver.

I should hate the episode, romance bullcrap, lots of mediocre dialogue but i actually loved it. very interesting stuff, i really liked the relationships, finally Tommy grows a pair, the relationships among the characters develope nicely, which i think is necessary, it can't be all action now substance. Its not annoying smallville its actually deeper. the action scenes were great, really liked the Helena's costume. the actress did a better job. Felicity was amazing and the story gets better and better.

9/10.

Okay, 2 things I did not like, when Helena attacks those chinese fellas she takes one of them down on the floor and wrestles him while the last one sits in his chair. If that dude had a gun she would be killed before she knew it.
Also didn't like that she gave the "Failed this city" line.
Other than that it was a solid episode with good action.

Thought the episode was better than last weeks.

I figured there'd be mentioning of Ollie wearing a mask or Huntress actually being called Huntress.

More Felicity, please.
