(Reviews) The Flash 1x6, AOS 2x8, Arrow 3x7

A lot to talk about this week!

The Flash 1x6

Kind of a middle-of-the-road episode but I did like Barry giving Iris the proper name for his hero. :) I also liked the Joe/Harrison interaction, but was heartily dismayed at all the evidence being stolen by Wells. Poor ol' Henry is going to rot in prison, isn't he?

Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. 2x8

I enjoy seeing the Bobbi/Hunter relationship. People like that can't live together but they have great sex and still care about each other a lot.

So we learn more about the Diviner. Interesting.

So it doesn't look as if there will be redemption for Ward. Kind of hard to come back from killing your brother and parents, eh? I half-expected him to throw Christian into the well and bury him, but that was too easy and not manipulative enough. Have to pretend to be the loving brother when of course he doesn't have a clue as to what that really feels like. I hope they keep Ward as serial killer/sociopath. Garrett only enhanced what was already there, apparently. How deliciously creepy is Ward now?

That poor girl caught 44 years later by that sadist Reinhard. And did we REALLY need to see him carve her up like a side of beef? Am I the only one that thinks TV and movies can really go down a disgusting road these days?

Arrow 3x7

Felicity, honey, GRAB RAY PALMER AND HOLD ON FOR ALL YOU'RE WORTH! Not only does he have a super physique (there, I said it!), but he's loaning you haute couture dresses and TEN MILLION DOLLAR DIAMOND NECKLACES? He's brilliant, quirky, and funny! He's a heckuva lot more fun than brooding Ollie.

Aww, Ollie taking Roy with him to the Diggles' house for dinner. Y'know, I can see a nice slashy relationship between these two archers. ;) Ollie doesn't have much luck with women, mostly because of his own failings, and Roy has struck out, too. Maybe they'd work well together in the romance department.

Since gay relationships between major characters will never happen on TV (at least in comics shows), I'd say the chemistry between Felicity and Ray is a lot stronger than between her and Ollie. I always got a friends vibe between the latter. Ollie matches up better (at least through my eyes) with Tommy (back in the day), Diggle, or Roy. His chemistry with women never seemed quite right to me. He even had more chemistry with Slade before he lost his mind.

Ironically, the best relationship on this show was a femslash one: Nyssa/Sara.

Looks like a Flash/Arrow crossover next week. Does that mean The Flash needs a ratings boost?
