I really hope they arent lazy with why E2 Laurel is still on E1...they could merge E1/E2 but then there'd be no reason for Dinah suiting up as BC so....yeah..
So if Ollie is dead, how exactly will they have 2-3 more episodes?
This episode is the "backdoor pilot" for a possible series. So Ollie's absence in the year 2040 doesn't require much explanation. (He wasn't in the prior flashforward scenes either.)
For the finale, I assume Specter-Ollie will make an appearance.
They never explained what happened to Mia, William and Connor for the final two episodes of Crisis. I hope there is some explanation for that.
New timeline, they never went to the past?
But from that promo it appears they did and that Mia ends up remembering.
She only gets the memories back but in Earth Prime it never happened.
I wonder if this and the Fadeout are two-part series finale.
Not really. This takes place after the finale and apparently is set up in a way that you dont need to have watched Arrow...and there are a lot of unanswered questions.
Overall I enjoyed it. Fairly fresh-ish for Arrow.
Loved me getting all that Laurel, she got to play with different aspects of herself though it's boring to give us Crisis and.....nothing really seems to have changed for her? Still usual ol'E2 Laurel? Couldn't come up with a decent amalgamation? Though as usual....she needs to work on her chill. Even as a good guy she likes to just jump into the thick of it. I wonder if she spent some time with the Legends and how they came across 2041 Star City blowing up...and why Sara and the team didnt all try to take it on. Or they decided "cant fix it" and Laurel being Laurel is all "I'll secretly take off to fix it myself!"
Crisis really did a favor for Dinah, she may have been erased from Earth Prime (or is it just the future?) but the more mellow Dinah certainly works better than the one we had. Of course they gave her the clock tower to live in lol.
New!Mia is interesting...I liked her for the most part but it's just weird thinking that Felicity would have raised her in the Queen mansion and that she'd be social lite. Seems like something Felicity would hate. Though maybe she was happy with Mia embracing that part of life given everything that she knows happened originally.
Can we seriously stop with Cisco replicating peoples powers? It's such a cop out and they dont even try to make sense of it.
Of COURSE JJ has his memories returned...now the only question is...who is that person who did that and where did they get that device? Was it Laurels? Did Cisco hand them out like candy?
Really enjoyed the dynamic between the 3, gave me Charmed vibes and hope we get a series with the 3 of them. Mostly cause I hate myself and need more Laurel in my life even if they probably do things that will piss me off for another 7 years .
I liked parts of the episode and I'm open to a spin-off, especially with Katherine McNamara in a lead role, but a lot of the post-Crisis stuff doesn't make sense to me.
It was interesting. I always like Laurel though I see she was tagged with 'guest appearance.' Would rather it centered on her. Would like to know how she's dealing with E2 and if it is still around at all. As above, I liked how she was brash and abrupt but also caring and having some feelz, though with her usual struggle.
I do wish they had all stayed in the 2020 timeline, but we are where we are. I might stay with it if only for Laurel.
Dinah Laurel carried the episode big time. No surprise the Earth-2 version survived since Guggenheim already tweeted that out.
Wow this was terrible. One of the worst episodes I’ve seen. Won’t be following this new series. Sad day for arrow fans.
I liked it because of Cassidy’s Laurel although I have to admit that I’m not used to her having the best scene stealing lines/scenes.
My main issue is I have no idea who on earth these other characters are and what they were pre-crisis - JJ, Zoe, Connor, etc.
I havent seen the pre crisis show versions of the characters but I dont mind much. Hope ti gets picked up. I wonder who the primary villain teased is...Lady shiva is what I want tbh.
This managed to be the highest rated DC-CW show of the week!
Very cool. Hoping it gets picked up to series.
10 minutes in, and thank god they came up with a way to avoid any more attempts at old age make up for Dinah...
I’m surprised it was watchable actually. Knowing full well that the previous flash forwards kinda’ sucked and practically nobody cared for them, and yet here we are, again in the future, but with a couple of twists.
I guess we’ll find out why Laurel is there in the Arrow final, although if Laurel has access to time travel, she can just jump around if/when she pleases, right? With everything we know (and the characters know) about time travel, you’d think they’d stop messing with it.
My only qualm here is that this show is just going to be Arrow 2.0 in the sense that it’s an ensemble of Arrow cast, again fighting to save the city.
It really is a legacy show and knowing that Arrow has troubling seasons where it seemed the writing team were struggling, and I struggle to think how many seasons this spinoff is going to get before it falls into the same boat.
Finished it. I quite liked it. A bit of a different set up than I expected, but it works. I will catch it next year. I hope, with the Bertinellis being a big part in the pilot, they get a chance to fix mistakes they took with Huntress.
It feels like Laurel may have palled around with Sarah a bit after the funeral. That is something I wouldn't mind seeing in Legends, though I don't think they are going to do that.
Meh. It wasn’t terrible but I just don’t feel the need to watch an actual series surrounding them. Same with Superman and Lois as parents.
Maybe that will make the spinoff official!
We may have to wait between February and May to see if Green Arrow and the Canaries get a series order. I’m betting it would be 13-15 episodes like Black Lightning and Legends.
