    Nice ep as far as the whole Darhk angle, though why did he all of a sudden lose his powers once the idol got smashed.. Surely there would have been some residual power.

    As to the kid angle, i liked initially how Felicity and co were handling it, but HATED how she walked out at the end. First off, she has been wheelchair bound for what, 4 months or so (at least).. And she just got her legs back and can walk out like nothing is amiss?
    Secondly by what right did she feel she had a 'right to have been included' in the decision????

    Funny when always bad guys say that your incapable to see the bigger picture and then expect something.
    But they never talk about the info about the bigger picture. How can anyone see the bigger picture if they have no info about it

    So theyre really narrowing the list of who could be in the grave... Im guessing Lance.

    So is Darkh in custody now?

    It's about time Thea remembered that she had a real dad.

    The final scene was sort of... abrupt, even though the idea behind it was good.

    Then again, if they showed her struggling or walking gingerly at first, it would have made the scene stronger but also have it make less sense that she walks away from the wheelchair.

    Thinking on that, i am shocked we have not heard one iota on 'dad 2' who got snagged back in S1 (or was it S2) when he investigated the Queen's Yacht..

    Yeah Walter. I almost forgot about him too, but he's still around technically. I actually liked that character, but he feels like someone from a completely different show now. They must have felt he didn't work because they wrote him out of the show pretty quickly and decisively after Season 1.


    But he is still the closest thing Thea and Oliver have to a father.

    Yeah...

    That last scene was some of the trashiest trash to ever grace the screen.

    Seriously, the producers ****ed up enough last season by giving in to the small yet annoyingly vocal shippers (some of the worst kinds of fans) and putting those two together, and now they split them up in the stupidest way possible.

    Felicity went from being a great secondary character in the first two seasons to being a terrible main character whose spotlight has taken away too much time from the actual plot and other, far better characters.

    It's not the actresses fault, but ******* these producers and showrunners have no ******* idea what they are doing, and even worse, how it is wrecking the show.

    I had such high hopes for this season and it started off great and has turned to ****.

    Does anyone else think Felicity's reaction was unwarranted? "I understand ... but you kept this from me." Aside from the condition the mother made, this secret, and the entire situation, had absolutely nothing to do with Felicity. She had no right to claim a stake in it.

    I do. And i felt she had no say in what happened with the kid (as i already mentioned).. Now if oli adopted him, she would, but since he has not, she has none..

    I think she has a right to be upset about not being told, but her reaction of leaving him in this episode and the Vandal Savage one felt like an over the top overreaction. It makes her seems like she is very quick to give up.

    Thing about this secret is that it's not even years old. He didn't know he had a son and when he got to know goes past few months and that's already a big deal.
    It's not like she has no secrets cause the past has not come to deal with her again.

    I wouldn't exactly call them a small group. I've rarely seen so many people ship two characters like Oliver and Felicity. I mean I don't even like shipping and I have been waiting for them to get together since she first entered the show. I have friends who are about as romantically minded as a dirty wash cloth who ship them.
    Please do me a huge favour and help me be with the love of my life.

    There is a difference between thinking "Oh, they could be a good couple" to "Omgz, Olicity is all I watch this show for...Creators, why don't you put them together!"

    Seriously, there are entire tumblr blogs devoted to the pairing. I saw one the other day that wrote such a ridiculous review on this episode. They literally wrote over a thousand words on the development in the episode...of Olicity. Absolutely no mention of Dahrk, Vixen, nothing else. Only focused on the drama between two of the main characters. And those are the types of people the showrunners listened to.

    Yay...

    I'm still not ruling out the son, just because he walked away from this doesn't mean that Malcolm won't go off the reservation on him in retaliation again, he really seems a bit unhinged again now.

    If Malcolm kills Ollie's son, then Ollie should kill Malcolm's daughter!

    ...Wait.
