Oliver’s moral posturing can’t hide the fact he’s not morally unblemished. Oliver’s acts are unjustified and unjustifiable. Quentin might as well be Oliver’s boot boy, his personality and balls are gone. The dire situation is Oliver’s fault. There is no consistent air of dread. Oliver is not emotionally vulnerable. Felicity and William get yelled at by Oliver who smashes William’s science fair project. Who cares about Oliver’s existential conflict?
Oliver isn’t even delightfully pathetic. TPTV act like Felicity is Oliver’s only significant relationship. TPTB overlook how Oliver got Tommy killed. Why is it morally acceptable for Oliver to be an enraging ass who holds particular scorn for everyone? Where are Slade and his sons?
Oliver is a very negative person. I’m sure a cataclysm and a catastrophic defeat are coming for Oliver. His often disrespectful behaviour needs to have consequences. Olive’s guiding principle is to be an unamused jackass with one facial expression. Quentin badmouths Diggle. Oliver still won’t apologise. Felicity babbles, shut up bitch. Oliver is dark and moody. Where is Watson? Oliver gets a gun and hallucinates Prometheus.
Oliver is socially troubled and harbours resentments towards all his friends. Prometheus has a new haircut and he’s growling cue an imaginary fight and dramatic music. Prometheus gurgles and mumbles. Oliver doesn’t care about his son. TPTB have cast Latino villains for seasons 6 and 5, I’m just pointing that out.
Oliver is tripping balls on Vertigo. Oh who cares? Oliver wails about failing as a father, a mayor and as a hero. Where is Susan? Oliver is ethically and morally obligated to be awful. Why is Quentin bootlicking Oliver? Why is Oliver conversing with Prometheus? Diaz’s malign hand is felt. Who is Kullens? Oliver hallucinates dead Laurel. Oliver destroyed Laurel and thinks her being a vigilante was a mistake. He hasn’t apologised for cheating on her. Oliver is berated by an imaginary Renee who he didn’t bother to visit in hospital. He still won’t apologise.
Diaz is the man with the dragon tattoos or something and he’s angry or something. Oliver wails about the mission. Diaz is not a known threat apparently. Oliver denies being the Green Arrow in smug unconvincing fashion. Oliver is impeached. Quentin is mayor now. Oliver fails in dramatic fashion. This was good. Oliver punches Quentin out and gets away with it. Felicity runs. I loathe Oliver. Felicity coos over her violent, drug addled, jerk ass, murderer of a husband. Oliver wants to be alone and fires Felicity. Oliver thinks he’s a lot more impressive than he is.
“Cloned a cabbage.”
“This is who he is Felicity.”
“A second rate drug dealer.”
“There’s no team.”
“Dad is on drugs.”
“A bunch of angry cops.”
“Drugs are bad!”
“Why does everyone keep leaving me?”
“I’m just not killable.”
“Just get them all to abandon you.”
“Kill you straight.”
“Why did you let her become the Black Canary in the first place?”
“Gave you an out.”
“Back to basics.”
“Go back to your secret lair.”
“Not a great tack record when it comes to hiring DAs, though”
“Solar hot dog cooker.”
“Go play video games.”
Aunt Lydia seems locked in long term regret. Janine is off to the Colonies. Offred sees what is being done to the handmaid Ofwyatt who did not practice self care and who drank drain cleaner whilst pregnant. The handmaids are punished some more for their rebellion. Flashbacks show June berated for ignoring her sick child.
The Commander and Serena Joy are blindingly avaricious over the unborn child of their handmaid and the chauffeur. Offred mouths off. Then she escapes. Flashbacks show the Eye existed pre-Gilead. Nick shows up. Offred bleeds and breeds. Is Nick still in the Waterford’s house? This was okay.
“God has created a new soul.”
“Now you are being given freedom from.”
“If you choose to be difficult. I will be forced to make arrangements.”
A Commander’s wife (Marisa Tomei) ends up in the Colonies for a sin of the flesh. The water is full of ecoli and everyone is sick. Flashbacks show death and Emily and her wife (Clea Duvall) going to a packed airport which was full of ICE and ACLU officials. Emily’s Canadian wife can travel as can her son (who Emily gave birth to) as they have Canadian passports but Emily is trapped. Janine arrives in the Colonies. Offred watches ‘Friends’. Emily is embittered and poisons the wife and strings her body up. This was okay. Did you know Elisabeth Moss was in ‘Suburban Commando’? Well now you do.
“You’re not a Martha making a run for the border, you’re a pregnant handmaid.”
“There’s nowhere for you to go.”
“Not in favour of the university purges.”
“A mistress was kind to me. Once.”
“The document is no longer recognised.”
“Some things can’t be forgiven.”
“You should die alone.”
“There will be consequences.”
