(Reviews) Agent Carter 1x7, Arrow 3x14



Agent Carter 1x7

Ah, a fitting ending: Howard piloting a plane destined for tragedy, until Peggy pulls him out his hypnotic state. And poor Jarvis, facing the necessity of blowing his employer out of the sky!

I knew that Dottie wasn't dead! Someone like her doesn't go easily. The fight between her and Peggy was exciting. Appears Peggy can more than hold her own against a Black Widow.

Poor Sousa. He's a lovesick sort but a good guy.

What a grand residence she and Angie share now! Pretty fancy digs, ladies! :)

I do like the relationship between Peggy and Howard: friends instead of lovers and bonded by their love for Steve, though they knew each other before Steve came into their lives, so there was already something there.

Will we see more of Agent Carter in the future?

Arrow

Malcolm's getting his just desserts. I suppose Ollie's right in saving him because of Thea but damned if he's worth the lives of Diggle and Ollie.

Thea likes to live dangerously, doesn't she? We'll see what Nyssa has in store for her.

I do like the scenes between Nyssa and Laurel. Some good fanfic material there. :)

Felicity, honey, how did you resist Ray for so long? ;)

I guess ATOM isn't going to miniaturize? ;)

Ugh, hate waiting 'til mid-March for this and The Flash to continue.

I'm really glad that Agent Carter had the shorter season/mini-series format this year because I feel like not a second was wasted. The ending was perfect and I will be very sad if we don't get another season (or mini-season)

As for Arrow, Oliver was being an idiot in the last episode and was so blinded by his hubris that he didn't properly weigh the risk vs. reward of rescuing Malcolm. I did like the moment with Dig when he finally realized that he'd been an idiot, but I can only hope this leads to him actually listening to his team on certain matters.

And Ray is adorable and perfect for Felicity. No offense to Oliver, but I don't see how anyone in their right mind would choose the guy who doesn't seem capable of having a functional relationship over Ray. And from what I understand, the original season plan was for Ted Kord. It seems like DC said no, so they pretty much just changed the name of the character and the design of the suit and called it a day. I find it easier if I just pretend that he is Ted because he pretty much is in everything but the name. I also find it kind of funny that we got to see Jean Loring last season (she was Moira's lawyer) and got a mention of 'Ray and Jean' moving in together in a flashback last season as well.

Sometimes the shorter format works better! :)

I know poor Ollie always was Batman-lite in the comics until they gave him his own personality in the Bronze Age, but this is ridiculous! All this angsting and stuff really isn't him. And Ra's wanting him to take over? That's a Bruce thing, not Ollie!

I'd take Ray in a heartbeat! The man's gorgeous, rich as sin, generous with his toys, capable of empathy, and has a sense of humor! Which is sorely lacking in certain heroes in Star City.

Looks like Jean got dumped! :) Because isn't the woman Ray lost of a different name?

Oh, I don't think that he was ever with Jean. The show's version of Jean Loring was old enough to be his mom and was pretty much just in there as an Easter Egg. I think that's mostly because the original plan for season three was to have Ted Kord, and not Ray Palmer.

And yes, I'd take Ray in a heartbeat too! Even though he's lost someone, he's still pretty emotionally well-adjusted, gorgeous, funny, generous, empathetic, all those things you listed.

Yay for Easter Eggs! ;)

I hope we see more of Ray in his supersuit. Nice to have another hero in Star City. That place sure needs 'em!
