Eddie was in some form related to Wells. Without Eddie no Wells. Quite simple really.

I got that part, Captain Obvious  :biggrin:.  Why kill yourself, when you can just kill the baddie?  I get what he was thinking, just not why he was thinking that was the best/only choice.  And if Eddie was smart enough to know that 'no Eddie = no Wells' could mean that 'no Wells = nothing that has happened for the last 15 years in this timeline ever did happen'.

Like Hef said... we'll see.

This, although I doubt that's how they play it.

Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

After finally finishing Arrow S3 and seeing Flash totally blew Arrow out of the water.

It really says a lot when the Arrow characters are better when they appeared in Flash than they were in Arrow! Ra's was the only good part in this season of Arrow.

Yeah, season 3 of Arrow sucked the big one....hoping for better in 4, but somehow I doubt if they can reach the earlier standard.

I don't think it sucked at all. It was a bit of a step down from seasons 1 and 2 which were fantastic, but I still thought it was really solid. The main drop in quality was in the flashback story, which wasn't nearly as engaging as it was in the first 2 seasons.

I still think it was on a par with the first season of the Flash though.

Well alright, it wasn't crap. But I for one wanted to know more about what happened on the island. First it went from 'five yeas I've spent on a deserted island' to 'oh wait, I've spent some of it on a boat' to 'Oh, and btw, I spent about a half year running around in Hong Kong'....come on, man. I wanted to know about him honing his survival skills, his perfecting his bow-skills, all that. Missed opportunity for me.

As someone who really liked Constantine when it aired on NBC and was upset that it got canceled, I am thrilled to hear the news that Matt Ryan will reprise the role on an upcoming episode of Arrow.

Also, yesterday's reveal of Jay Garrick (in a mockup with Barry of the classic "Flash of Two Worlds" comic) was fantastic.

I quite enjoyed Constatine. Loved Matt Ryan's performance. Too bad it got discontinued.

I'm currently binging the first season on Netflix and am loving it so damn much. It has that slightly cheesy feel at times but it's buried beneath a lot of great moments, intense action and a great story. The main characters are pretty damn good actors as well, much better than I expected; especially the two 'leads' Barry and Harrison. Really interesting dynamic and this is the first DC show I've been into. I really did not like Gotham at all and am pretty lukewarm on Arrow, but this is some great stuff. The first ep collaboration made me want to get into Arrow but I'm still so very meh about it. But I'm totally into this! Flash was one of my favorite characters as a kid and I just kind of forgot about how fucking awesome he is as both a character and a superhero. This is one of the first origin stories I'm not totally sick of, and on the contrary, don't know much about. I actually like the slightly cheesy yet heartwarming moments on the show and it really reminds me of the better parts of Smallville. I know just throwing that name out there will invite cringing from a lot but I was one of the few that really enjoyed most of it (granted, I haven't rewatched it since my puberty and highschool days...then stopped watching around S6 or something like that). I digress, but it's got it's hooks in me and I'm liking it. Rawr.

Funny. I was actually the opposite. I really liked Arrow from the start, really dug the setup and storyline and all the supporting cast. With Flash though....took me some time to get into it. I wasn't really a fan of the comic either, but I really grew to love this. They really got the atmosphere and supporting cast right. The same with SHIELD, really great casting.
Got to say though, keeping up with all of these shows...whew! Quite a task!

I still easily prefer Arrow to Flash, though the 3rd season was definitely less strong and the Flash improved over the course of the season. Both are great fun though.

Hm! Well I'm going to have to check out both Arrow and Shield again after I binge Flash. I can't stop watching it though, I am in love with it. It's been a while since I tried to get into either of the aforementioned so maybe my tastes just changed or I needed to see it differently. (Although I'm just going to leave Gotham...that shit is horrible...from the main cast to, and especially (ten fold) the supporting cast...fuck that 'new joker'...the guy is ACTUALLY a joke.  :lol)

I thought the Flash was just ok.  Disappointed how fast (pun totally intended) they explained away and solved the singularity.  Don't really know why they had to remove the Henry-in-prison subplot, and get rid of the character totally - again, incredibly fast.  And 6 months later, the local coffee joint still isn't up and running?  Who owns the business?  Lots of little things were kinda annoying.

I don't know jack about the DC universe, but jingle.son got all jacked about the introduction of Garrick.

Overall, kinda bland, but sets up for a very interesting season.

Yes, the introduction of Jay Garrick is going to lead to all kinds of crazy shit.

he was the original Flash.  In the comics, this would have been WWII-era.  But the Golden Age ended in the late 1940s and superheroes were more or less forgotten.  In 1956 the Flash was reintroduced, but it was not the same Flash.  He had a different name (Barry Allen), costume, and background.  In his very first appearance, he is seen reading a comic book about the Jay Garrick Flash which is what inspires him to take up the name "Flash" after his accident.

A couple of years later, while doing some super-speed tricks, Barry inadvertently transports himself to a parallel universe where he finds Keystone City which is the hometown of his childhood comic book hero, the Jay Garrick Flash.  The person he used to think of as fiction actually existed in this parallel universe.  And thus Earth-Two and the DC Multiverse is born.  The idea is that there are an infinite number of universes that take up the same physical space, but are separated by vibrational frequencies.

although he never got his own comic book again, he made regular appearances all over the DC universe as a father/grandfather-figure, mentor, and all around bad ass (in the hero sense).

I like the friction between everyone on the first Arrow episode.   They need to work together but it won't come easy.

I agree.  Plus, the setup with Damien Dark and the mystical element is laying the foundation for the future.  Really looking forward to this season.

The mystical element definitely lends itself well to Constantine appearing at some point.

I thought it was a great opener, though that final scene was really cruel. WHO THE HELL DIED?

What a god awful Flash episode this week.  Jingle.kids and I were so  :facepalm: throughout the whole thing.

And for fuck sakes, stop talking so openly about Barry being The Flash.  Does nobody around them in the coffee shop overhear anything?

Finally caught up on Gotham season 2. Holy hell this has been a great season so far! Way better than season 1. Loved the Galavant arc. Hopefully the remainder of the season will be as good as the first half.

I loved the first episode of Arrow!

I thought it was really cool how they used the opening scene (especially considering how the first half of the season ended) and then went back four months. It's kind of an over-used plot device but they had a nice twist to it, I thought. Anyway, I'm engaged in the series again now that Oliver actually seems to be learning from his mistakes.  :)

same.  Kind of fun to watch, but a lot of the scenes that included all the characters seemed to boil down into "yeah, what he said", "me too", "I agree" over and over.

I do like that they are laying out some clear motivational differences for each character joining the team.
