Lian Yu
Chase has infinite malice and Oliver has moral vacuity. Oliver lets Slade out of the blacksite jail because he needs the help. Slade is indomitable and Oliver has causal disrespect. An ARGUS guy gets punched in the face and forgotten. Oliver brought scorn on his head and is now paying for it. Slade is dour faced and sane. Oliver and his monstrous grasping ego offers to help Slade find his son. Shame he didn’t do that YEARS ago. What about Slade’s son in the bleak future?

Oliver has the implicit assumption that Slade will have a servile attitude to him. Merlyn and his bad haircut looks over-botoxed. Wouldn’t Slade’s depth-perception be affected by only having one eye? Digger a forgotten bad guy bores. There is bad VFX and yet more useless flashbacks. Kovar and his man boobs bore. Somehow Kovar has unquestioning fealty from his men. This has no quiet foreboding or menace. Thea needs to drop dead. Evelyn and Talia are smug yet are easily defeated. Digger is bad, like duh.

This has no calm dignity and one does not get heart-swelling satisfaction from watching it. Evelyn is locked in a cage and forgotten. Felicity whines. Oliver is thankless. Felicity ruined this show. Lian Yu was a holy retreat with a temple back in the day? Black Siren has no hesitancy or discomfort. Nyssa and Slade must be sweating in their OTT outfits. Neither Merlyn nor Thea mention Tommy. Merlyn may be dead.

Felicity makes it all about her. Curtis is foolish and selfish. Chase covered Lian Yu in bombs? Quentin calls Dinah the Black Canary. WTF? Nyssa and Talia have issues and no vast reservoir of affection. Chase is nuts. Shrug. I may give season 6 a go. Chase is not evil made manifest. TPTB hate Laurel and spit on her, her memory and her alternate universe twin at every possibility. Kovar dies during a useless flashback. Chase’s reputation for unpredictability goes on. This had no hypnotic charisma. When and how did Chase rig Lian Yu?

Flashbacks show how Oliver staged his rescue and put on the outfit, mud, wig and beard. Nobody noticed the wig and beard? Talk about undermining 1x01 with this fake rescue. The fishermen had a satellite phone? Where was Oliver’s step dad? Does this mean the end of useless flashbacks? What about the ARGUS guy Oliver assaulted? Oliver’s stupid son needs saving. Chase reaffirms his commitment to vengeance by killing himself and possibly everyone on Lian Yu. This forfeits sense. Nobody noticed an island blowing up?

Best Lines:
“This is how you help me.”

“Should we?”

“What do you need an RPG for?”

“Evil dads.”

“Reference too dated?”

“You sure he’s yours?”

“You thought you could replace me.”

“I can’t believe him.”

“Father was always ashamed of me.”

“You’re late.”
“But they’re not.”

“You don’t seem too bright.”

“You’re not the first one to call him that.”

“This place brings back memories.”

“This is a large island.”

“I trust him more that you.”
“Didn’t he kill your mother?”

“The 3 gulf streams I used to have.”

“I regret enough as it is.”

“Everything has to do with your father.”

“We are nothing to each other.”

Clique 1x05&1x06
This concludes. Holly’s ‘friends’ know her no more, for a while anyway. Fay did not value herself and now neither does Georgia. Who is Charlie? Holly sees it as her solemn duty to reveal Fay’s truth and save the vile Georgia. There is no innocent explanation for anything. Holly makes grandiose proclamations and vitriolic condemnations. Nobody is wonderfully competent.

Rich people are calculating reflective evil and are the murderous embodiment of avarice. Rory is a wrong un. Georgia’s grim secret bores cos of her intransigence. Jude expresses concern about Georgia’s unmerited job. Nobody has a moral duty or a moral obligation. There is no grinding tension. Jude has seething rage and Georgia is a glum figure with terrible judgement. The driver lingers. Holly is incautious and bombastically accusing. Georgia is all enigmatic blankness as she is swallowed up by her predicament.

Why is Holly so rude to Elizabeth? WTF is wrong with Georgia? This was not soulful. The fate of Alistair the smirking weasel is unclear. Georgia constantly harangues Holly. This was not ablaze with intensity. This was volcanically stupid. Holly is a social outcast for a bit and then are twists. Georgia engages in refutation. Things go awry. Rachel is not a good friend and is emotively awful.

Things go more awry and there are twists and death. Jude is fired. Holly loses her mind. There are more twists and reveals. Georgia is the worst. There is more bad VFX and people move on. Holly’s bizarre behaviour and creepy Georgia obsession is revealed. Holly is a liar and a psycho. This ends on an interesting note. This was okay if not definitive.

Best Lines:
“Now things are happening without you.”

“Not equipped to understand.”

“Calling you a pimp for your brother.”

“Mad bitches with a vendetta.”

“What is wrong with you?”

“Made me believe that you were good.”

“I had to make him stop.”

“Make them believe us.”

“Corporate entertainment.”


“She helped you to ruin people.”

Grumpy Old Liv
Liv is annoying. Blaine is still around? Major is bothered by Liv. Major is a personal trainer now? A vile business man overacts. Everyone is awful. This ep and this show are both horrible trash.

Best Lines:
“A bra for his ass.”

“Manic violent episodes.”

“Is that my cue to start cackling manically?”

“Paint your face like a 2 dollar whore.”
