Hedonist Oliver wants to throw a party, Barry Allen talks too much; Felicity wears way too much blusher and is this a backdoor pilot for a spin-off? I hope not, because Barry is a flickering construct not a character. Sin shows up, she is less terrible than Barry. Malcolm lurks, he seems to not care that Tommy is decomposing in the Starling City cemetery. Oliver gets his ass kicked by one of Brother Blood’s crew. Oliver mutters that Ivo is dead, that he burned the serum and that he stopped a super soldier before.
Barry spews a sob story back-story, Felicity whines and sulks, Moira is billy no mates, Oliver breaks ties with Roy and Moira claims Ra’s al Ghul wants to kill Malcolm. It seems the undertaking broke the League of Assassins code of honour. Oliver gets beat down and needle stuck. Felicity brings Barry to the arrow cave; yeah bring in the dignity and courage free moron. Stupid show. I did not like this at all.
Flashbacks to the island show Oliver and his gang finding the submarine and the shooting up the crispy Slade with the super solider serum. Why hadn’t the serum evaporated since WW2? Poor Slade.
“She was acquitted.”
“Do your parents know that you’re here?”
“One very strong guy.”
“Pray I’m wrong.”
“You killed Tommy. You killed your son.”
“You made me the man I am today.”
“He’s not who he says he is.”
“They will not stop him.”
“It hurt them. Badly.”
“How do you know that name?”
“How are we supposed to explain this?”
Sharon asks Gigi to help her flog her biblical diet plan ‘Losing it with Jesus’ on a shopping channel. Rip plays Jesus in the tacky musical. Amanda lets her mean girl out and then has to grovel. Carlene naturally ends up playing the Holy Spirit due to her big Broadway voice and then has a flight harness malfunction that sends her through some stained glass. This was okay.
“You know how many eating disorders you left in your wake?”
“I don’t audition. I’m always just given the lead. It’s tradition.”
“People are still talking about my burning bush.”
“Lord if you are willing, make me less gross.”
“I just adore my crocodile toilet seat cover.”
“That outfit you got on looks like Tinkerbell threw up on it.”
“The devil’s sugary temptations.”
“You couldn’t become a star even if Hollywood was destroyed by a meteor.”
“Being where you are makes you the dumbest bitch I know.”
“His brothers are drunker than usual, if that’s possible. Now we’re already had two fistfights. That’s just between family members.”
“They’re drunk and they’re morons.”
“Having never milked a moose. I imagine one must catch it in the right mood.”
“He literally picked you up off the street.”
