    Surprised they never had her on screen with Bennett.

    Yeah the flashbacks are terrible. Every time one comes up, I'm just like, "Oh no, this again?!" Katana is cool but the rest of it is so weak.

    LOL.

    I thought the last Waller/Oliver scene was great. It's not often they allow Amanda to show any vulnerability so that was a plus. I liked when she dropped the gun. She also still looked pretty good despite beaten up :hmr:

    I would really like to see that. They work really well together. I just wonder if they'd be able to get through a scene together without giggling. I mean they've seen each other naked and touched body parts.

    They could go somewhere with Waller and Slade, and not just in a fan service way but organically; I want to know why she was so freaked out when she found out Slade was still alive.

    Honestly, this kind of reeks of last minute rewrite, to me. The flashback plot is ongoing all season, and then out of the blue the Real True Villain pops up, who is. . . this random dude you never met before, had never been foreshadowed, and has an Evil Scheme that makes not a lick of sense? If I were conspiracy-minded, I'd say "WB execs insisted on Amanda Waller being *ahem* white-washed, prior to the Suicide Squad movie."

    This isn't the last we're seeing of Amanda, is it? Because otherwise, their confrontation in the present last season - where she assumed that Oliver very much wanted to kill her - doesn't make sense.

    I immediately thought of that after she tells him to run, hoping they'll see each again one day. In 2x16 she says to Oliver is "Still mad at me?" and "Who do you want to kill more than me?"

    I guess you could argue that despite their last moments, she still treated him like crap, but it was a rather ambiguous send off for such a character.

    I hope the story idea they have is a good one.

    I don't think we'll be seeing her anytime soon. They basically wrote the SS/ARGUS out of the story this year. Both present and flashbacks. Deadshot killed off, Waller's sudden exit in the flashbacks, Lyla quit ARGUS

    To the contrary, she was the main villain of the flashback storyline. Until she suddenly, randomly, wasn't.

    I'll be surprised if we ever see her again, honestly.

    I'm guessing they had to switch gears when Cynthia became unavailable.

    Marc confirmed we will be seeing more of Waller in season four. Looking forward to what they have in store with this character. I'm really happy they can still use her on Arrow.

    I concur about getting Waller in the action. You've got a Spartacus alumni, use it.

    If they can still use Waller then would it kill them to show her active in the present or give some explanation as to why she hasn't been seen or heard from since last year's Suicide Squad episode (and she was gone 99% of that Season when it came to its present day story-line)?

    For me she was the best part of season 3.

    Hoping the next time we see her its a meaty part, preferably in the present as the flashbacks are redundant now. The last time she had a sizable amount of screen time was 2x16 and she has grown so much more into the role since than.

    I wonder how they will tackle her backstory, should they do a Waller centric episode. I really hope there's no death of a loved one, Arrow has done that with basically every character.

    I am glad that they can still use her. She is a great character and Cynthia is doing a very good job IMO. She is such a ruthless character that you could easily forget that she is on the good guys side. I love Waller in the comics too and I am happy to see her being portrayed well on the show.

    I mean ARGUS and Waller should be doing more to stop these "Ghost" from invading SC....Unless it all behind the scene stuff they are doing a bad job since they were concern about Slade and Mirarku

    I guess Lyla is the closest thing we have as a Amanda Waller role until we actually Amanda Waller in the present day again.

    Right. These ghosts are far more dangerous than Slade and his Mirakuru soldiers, so where is ARGUS?
