Laurel’s obsequiousness is still present. It seems Slade went back to Craphole Island to get the scary mask seen in 1x01. Shrapnel is not down with ARGUS shenanigans. Diggle grimaces. Shrapnel is wasted some more. Oliver’s methodology makes him shout and his aggressive, insulting tone is interminable. Unhelpful steps Ollie! There is Windows 8 product placement. Diggle has a rupture of trust. Laurel is in AA and yet hangs out in a bar with Sara the wayward hussy.
Where are Isabel and Brother Blood? Where did Slade get the home videos of Shado? Bronze Tiger kills people, Deadshot and Diggle bond and Waller calls in a drone strike. Oliver is miserably dissatisfied and choice-blighted in the light of Slade’s full scale intimidation. Oliver deserves to be embattled. Waller mentions a mercenary named Deathstroke, oh that doesn’t sound good. This was good, I surprised how good given that TPTB wasted Sean Maher AGAIN.
“It’s in the apocalypse in the form of a chemical weapon.”
“Who thought that was a good idea?”
“Please stop giving him books.”
“OJ and Charles Manson weren’t available?”
“Best thing I can for her life? Not be in it.”
“You’re alive because Shado isn’t.”
“Did I mention the sex-trafficking?”
“We’ll be putting the implants in their spinal vertebrae now.”
Annie still wears Simon’s key. Annie and Joan rekindle and reiterate their feud. Annie bullies the terrorist’s girlfriend. Arthur plans a drone strike as he and Joan’s marital issues bore. The show deteriorates some more in this mis-step of an ep. I’ve no sympathy left for Annie. She and Joan finally have it out over the crap Joan concocts and the froideur she provokes. Joan is a ghastly, arrogant, neurotic, negligent, callous mass of grievances. Arthur moves out. This show needs revitalising as there is no complicity, contradictions or menace present. Annie has all the confidence and charisma of a compost heap.
“I’m done, I’m done.”
