Arrow and The Flash

I missed portions of Arrow while I was tweeting, so I plan to rewatch. Both shows were spectacular,but I enjoyed The Flash a lot more. Arrow,why the hell did you kill Sara? WTF? It wasn’t necessary in order to make Laurel the Canary and if it’s Ra’s Al Ghul, his relationship with Nyssa would be affected. I think he’s the most likely suspect,though. It could have been the person she was assigned to kill. Olicity ending as soon as it started was bittersweet,even if we got  kissing, a date and an “I love you”. I suppose it makes sense since she’ll be seeing Barry soon,but still.

The crossover scenes on both shows were too cute for words. I want these two to be friends,even if they both have a romantic interest in Felicity. Felicity is much better than Iris, Barry’s LI on The Flash. I know she’s canon,but she’s not that bright, she’s ordinary and suffers from “Main Girl” syndrome. He needs someone closer to his IQ level and she seems kind of boring. Then again, I’m a rabid Barry/Felicity shipper,so I’m biased.

On the Arrow,Roy was on fire as Arsenal. I feel bad for him since it cost him Thea,but it’s something he needs to do to give him purpose. He’s a great addition to the team and he handled himself really well. I liked Diggle’s scenes a lot, too. We don’t get enough on him and both his scenes with Lilah and Oliver were superb.  Felicity has chemistry with everyone and I liked her interaction with Brandon Routh’s new character. I hope she does take the job he’s offering-It’s messed up to see her at a Best Buy.

The Flash is really awesome. I love Barry and would even if he wasn’t played by such a hot guy. His allies are interesting, although Caitlyn didn’t stand out much. We’re supposed to see her be blank and controlled,so it’s okay that the others overwhelmed her. Barry having a steady family influence is what makes him different from Oliver. He has a humble background, a regular job and responsibilities he can’t ignore.  I’ll give Iris the chance to improve, but she’s boring and ordinary. She’s better off with that cop-Barry can be free to date Felicity and possibly Caitlin. The fact that his surrogate father knows reminds me of Smallville and Buffy. The scene between Barry and his father was sweet and the fact that Henry is played by the original Flash makes it even better. I’m seriously wondering what Harrison’s intentions are. He’s from the future and someone on the show sent him back in time. Who? Why? What happened?
