    I don't know about anyone else, but I personally despise all rivalries or antagonistic relationships that are a result of the two disputing individuals fighting over a lover interest. I mean, can you guys imagine on how much hell a showrunner would receive if they did something like establishing that the reason why Joker and Batman are enemies is because the Joker was in love with Talia/Selina?

    I'm thinking Barrowman might be Tommy's father. After the Arrow kills him, Tommy seeks revenge.

    Tommy and Oliver are almost 30.

    Barrowman is too young to be Tommy's father.

    You're mixing actors and characters.

    Paul Blackthorne is two years younger than Barrowman, but he's supposed to be the father of Laurel who is the same age as Tommy and Oliver.

    How is it different?

    Check and mate.:woot:

    Well, then again, Katie Cassidy is also about 5 years younger than Amell and Colin Donnell.

    Ditto
    Ditto. I'm not a fan of domino masks by themselves in live action. Looks silly &I can only tolerate it in cartoons or a period piece
    I'm glad I don't get that vibe. The Cape was horrible, almost as bad as Birds of Prey. I love this show.

    Barrowman is way too youthful in his appearance to believably be the father of Tommy.

    They look like they were born a decade apart, tops.


    Barrowman also mentioned his character is one from the DC Comics.


    Harry Osbourne ripoff? I hope not.

    Wasn't a big fan of the last episode, but it was okay. It did do a lot to advance the story.

    Probably my favorite ep so far. It was the best written anyway. It didn't feel like a rehash of previous subjects and both the season and characters feel like they're moving on. I feel like some momentum is finally being gained. Mia seems comfortable with Ollie, Diggle has settled into his sidekick role, Dinah is finally beginning to get past her issues with Ollie and her sister, and even Det. Lance may be on the road to treating Oliver like a human being now that he's not confusing him with Arrow (not to mention the firm talking to that his daughter gave him). This coupled with Deathstroke being a badass made this my favorite episode.

    The show may be borderline nothing like the comics (okay, so it IS nothing like the comics) but it's fun to watch in it's own right and is a very entertaining take on the character set in a completely different universe. I cannot wait to see Deathstroke return with a larger role. He's the one villain to not disappoint me so far (Probably because he said nothing). That arrow catch and following fight was awesome.

    I thought he already had? Wasn't he shot in the pilot by Drakon when jumping behind the desk?

    Barrowman looks way, way, way too young to be Tommy's dad.

    So Colin Salmon going off to Australia was the explanation they gave for why he was missing a number of shows (while doing Strictly Come Dancing, which he was voted out of last week) rather than being killed off. I thought he might've met a sticky end like the head of security. I guess he might come back now since his SCD stint didn't last very long.

    Did Ollie kill the guy at the end of the episode? Did he go back to his old ways?

    I don't know, what with the bullet he took in the pilot, maybe he is supposed to be wearing something? Either that, or he actually is capable of catching bullets. . .

    I didn't know he was on Strictly, but with seeing his name at the start of the episode alongside the words "special guest appearance" I kind of thought he wasn't going to be a permanent part of the show and would possibly be killed off. Hopefully he comes back and they don't kill him off as I like his character and wouldn't mind seeing more of him.

    Not really. It's called acting.

    On another note, I'm glad that this show gave Oliver more than three arrows to have in his arsenal when he's out doing his thing. I hated how SV would only have their GA literally carry only three arrows in his back and expect people to think that he could efficiently fight crime with just three long arrows.

    Just wondering...whats the fighting style of Oliver/Arrow and Yao Fei? I thought initially it was capoeira, but now beginning to think it may be Brazilian jiu-jitsu. Is it some Brazilian martial arts?

    It's the one with the Blackhawks.
