    She's in the finale episode :woot:

    "OLIVER MUST DECIDE ONCE AND FOR ALL IF HE'S A KILLER OR A HERO -- Slade (Manu Bennett) moves forward with his plan to kill one more person in Oliver's (Stephen Amell) life. While Oliver has fought all year to be more than the killer he once was, when Slade kidnaps someone close to Oliver's heart, Oliver is pushed to the edge and realizes sometimes it takes doing the unthinkable to stop the monster. Meanwhile, Diggle (David Ramsey) takes on Amanda Waller (guest star Cynthia Addai-Robinson) with a little help from some friends, and Thea (Willa Holland) turns to Roy (Colton Haynes) in her time of need."

    Wasn't expecting an appearance this episode! It was nice to see her again (albeit brief). Still want to know about that cliff hanger in 2x16.

    She is as bad as she was in spartacus with Naevia...

    She destroyed the character in spartacus and i really despise the scenes with her. Sorry but its just it... maybe its because I am prejudiced by her destruction of Naevia.

    Cynthia did not destroy anything. If you didn't like the direction Naevia took, take that up with the writer Steven DeKnight, who created the character, and not the actor. Me, I loved her as Naevia. She was barely a character before season 2.

    I like her. I think she's interesting and I'm expecting a much bigger role for her next season.

    Lyla on the other hand... -_-

    Lyla Michaels? She doesn't really do anything for me one way or the other, she's sort of just there.

    Stills from the finale

    Hope she gets down and dirty in the action instead of having to just stand there and look tough

    My question is how the hell did Oliver get back on the Island.

    Maybe he failed to comply with her orders at one point and that got him back?

    So, it appears that (judging by that ending), Waller will be a major character in season 3.

    I can see her becoming a series regular for the 3rd season since Moira Queen is gone.

    And it looks like Det. Lance will have some reduced role as well.

    I really don't know what to say about Waller other than I appreciate her staying in pocket so much. She's got the right amount of tension without demanding any additional attention. She plays her role well, and I really like that.

    I don't really like Arrow's Waller. She is just way too much of a b**ch.

    I think Pam Grier on Smallville, was the better Amanda Waller.

    I dislike this version of Waller because I think Robinson's a bad actress....She's pretty much the only person on this show whose acting I've ever had a problem with, she ruins every scene with her overacting.

    Yeah I agree, Pam Grier was a way better Waller, even though Smallville is the weaker show. ..

    I would be excited about more Waller next season if Robinson was better. Hopefully she steps it up next season.

    Overacting really? She is find to me for what she is given. They aren't asking for her to do much but be a mean ass looking woman

    I think she's fine in the role personally. Other than the Green Lantern movie, i haven't seen any other incarnation of Waller on screen to form a bias against Robinson

    Amanda "The Bomber" Waller is what they should call her.
