The Flash 1x16

“It’s a bird…it’s a plane…!”

Ha, they really went there! Just like Mark Hamill’s “I am your father!” Tee hee.

I absolutely adored Cisco and Ray together. Talk about soulmates! ;) And Felicity’s remark about dating Barry in Oliver’s body gave me a chuckle.

I do find it sad that Ray is going to get his heart broken if it isn’t already. His expression while Felicity was saying goodbye to their friends certainly shows he knows what’s going on.

Okay, I’m going to go on a rant here: ordinarily I’m on the woman’s side when a man says something like, “Can’t we just have a nice dinner?”, implying that she’s too ‘emotional’ or some such irritating nonsense, but this time Eddie was right and Iris was wrong. I’m probably a minority of one, but she was rude. She just had to keep after Eddie when all he wanted was a few hours’ respite from their constant fighting. Instead of dropping it and going after Eddie later, she flounced off and ruined the dinner that Ray had taken a lot of trouble to set up for Felicity’s friends and the people he was meeting for the first time. I guess politeness is too old-fashioned these days. Iris was selfish. She wanted answers and wanted them NOW and to hell with any social niceties!

And then, the daughter of a cop doesn’t realize there are some things that Eddie might not want to discuss? Barry’s conversation with her was a complete bust. If she’s going to be the wife of a cop, she’s going to have to get used to her husband not wanting to bring the job home. And, yes, I know that he’s keeping the Flash secret from her, but honesty isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. I don’t know if I would want to know everything my friends thought of me! :) A little fibbing is a social necessity! As for the big secret that Eddie’s keeping, well, either he agrees with Joe that it’s better for Iris not to know or he’ll have to drop-kick his relationship with his future father-in-law and tell her himself. Otherwise he might lose her.

Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. 2x17

Nice little reveal with the bizarre family dinner having been already ‘seen’ by Rayna. So that’s her gift? Though why she needed to be transformed into Quill Woman is a puzzler.

So Melinda May used to be chatty and had a happy marriage until Bahrain? Interesting. Sad to say, with the Red Room program of HYDRA, she might come up against other dangerous children in the future.

The S.H.I.E.L.D. people are really foolish, going after each other instead of HYDRA. Talk about turf wars!

Arrow 3x17

Boy, if Ollie wasn’t considered the Bruce clone before, his attitude toward Ray with all the rolling eyes and other impatient gestures surely would convince people. Comics Ollie would enjoy his cheerful approach to the superhero game.

Poor Roy. It was a shock to see him killed, then I remembered, comics! So he’s alive, but can’t stay in Star City anymore. So now we have a show with no Green Arrow or Arsenal? I’d like to see how they get out of this one!

Maybe Roy can travel to Gotham and hook up with a certain bird. ;)

Now Thea’s dead? I saw by the previews that they’re going to use the Lazarus Pit. Will they do so even knowing that people who undergo that process often come out changed, even insane? This should be interesting!
