Thea and her manga mascara is useless. Oliver and Malcolm are unrepentant asses. This ep was awful and wrong. Oliver needs to piss off. There are more useless Hong Kong flashbacks and oh Shado may be alive. This show has become all about Oliver’s male validation. Oliver lies, Lance growls and is done with the Arrow due to Sara.
Felicity blabbers about TCP - isn’t that an antiseptic? I don’t care about Ray or his spin-off. Oliver is a shameless relentless ass. No-one is disarmingly honest. I loathe these bourgeois hilariously narcissistic idiots. Vague dislike has now become hated. There is total wrongness all round. Nyssa hangs out with Laurel because she isn’t Ra’s heir. Ra’s does a knife grab. There is a daft thin plot about industrial grade diamonds. Oliver is a negative force and is false, poisonous and full of vituperative language and self pity. TPTB are ruining this show.
Oliver name checks Tommy. Lance shuns Laurel. Arrow and Arsenal ride around on their matching mopeds. There is way too much Felicity. Where is Ted Grant? Ra’s dresses up in green lame pretending to be the Arrow and gets murdery. Sense was an afterthought in this crap.

The gang are sociopaths by choice. Michaela is a tool. Nate is married. Connor throws Sam’s burnt, battered remains into a dumpster. Wes is a tool. Connor has a breakdown in front of his ex. Asher and Bonnie boff. Michaela crawls to her future mother in law. There is a ‘twist’ and Wes lies more.
“This was all for nothing.”
This show is damaged beyond repair. What about this army Red was building in season 1? Keen is the sort who tends to annoy people. There is no Tom. There is babbling about bite marks on livers. Red gets into illegal organ donations and indulges in aggravated harassment. There is some unifying reason for what is going on but I don’t care. Keen gets smacked with a shovel. There are lies and babbles about the Fulcrum. Keen is a snot.

“Is there evil in your life?”
“Up there feeling sanctified.”
Nobody has a well-calibrated sense of volume control. Rochefort’s transparently vampiric attempt to control Louis goes on. He chuckles despotically, on the inside. Aramis lies accumulate. Rochefort’s wilful destruction of the French court goes on. Constance plays at being tough - it’s accidentally hilarious. Will she die already? There is a suicide and Rochefort gives us a back-story hint. There should be suitably horrifying consequences for all this.
The Queen is arrogant and smug. The notorious slag Milady has vivacity as she mumbles and whines. Rochefort tries to get the Queen executed. There is yelling, fighting and will Rochefort just get on with it? Unassertive Louis has a precarious tone. This episode was calamitous and not an ironic subversion. Even in the face of potentially lethal hostility from the musketeers Rochefort won’t give up. Everyone kicks his ass. The Queen and Aramis get away with their adultery. Rochefort dies and the Queen treats him with an almost unbearable contempt.
Louis promotes Treville. Louis has to suspect that the Dauphin isn’t his. Aramis quits. Milady pisses off. This ep rapidly went sour. I’ll miss the aggressive sneering Rochefort, how did the musketeers get away with rebelling and killing Rochefort with nothing remotely like an order to do so? This ep was monumentally unfocused, alienating, valueless, ropey and dubious. Gurning idiot Constance married d’Artagnan and his yokel veneer. Oh come on! War is declared on Spain and self absorbed misanthrope Athos is made captain. Louis just gets over being morbidly suspicious. This was a crap exit for the demonic Rochefort.
“You will not refuse me a second time.”
“None of us are musketeers now.”
“The disease of conspiracy spreads quickly.”
“We must face the truth, however terrible.”
“He’s a monster of your making.”
“Even I could not imagine he could climb so far.”
“I did not think of you once.”
“Than Rochefort’s allegations will soon be disproved.”
“You are a good and loyal wife.”
“All for one.”
“Foul and ugly thing.”
