My favorite part of “Trio”
During Blaine’s Sam/Tina freakout, he sounded like Harry Potter again.
You know, his timbre and Australian accent makes the “I promise” not sound cheesy.
It was always just a round.
Tonight was never going to be the night Slade won. It was always the opening battle. Oliver has friends, family, and allies aplenty, and he was always going to take them out one by one, prolonging Oliver’s suffering as long as he could, until Oliver was a shell of a man for him to crush. Why else put up cameras if he was planning on murdering the entire Queen Clan in one night?
But with Oliver rallying his troops, he couldn’t start a battle if he didn’t want the war to be over in a night. If he lost, he loses obviously. But he if won, he still loses. He’s suffered for five years, and it would not do for Oliver to suffer for a few hours.
By standing down, he has effectively gained more ground. Oliver may now that he’s alive, and who he’s allied with, but Slade knows everything. He know he’s got a former Army Ranger, a former member of the League of Assassins, and a street kid with Mirakuru flowing through his veins,. He also has the surveillance.
Team Arrow is not lost. Slade knows little and less about Felicity, and her capabilities. Before he left the mansion, there’s a good chance that everything there is to know about him is now saved on Oliver’s home base servers. His bank accounts, his phones, his cars, they can all be tapped at a moment’s notice.
There is indeed a war coming, and I doubt either side knows how formidable the other’s is.
I just want to make sure nobody forgets that Gabumon is a professional astronaut.
As opposed to an amateur astronaut?
Being a shade too clever
Sometimes I feel like I’m too clever for a TV show trying to make me ship something.
Not super-genius clever, just like 3% smarter than I should be, so I’m defiant when I see they want me to like two people together. It’s only 3%, so I don’t get any extra enjoyment out of it, but I miss out on the OTP fandom.
These are basically my feelings on Jake and Amy by the way. I think it’s stupid even though I know it’s no less stupid than a hundred of my other ships. And now Amy’s dating the guy from Perfect Couples and I’m all like, “Oh, look, two people who want to be together.” I can be on board with that. An actually healthy relationship.
It wasn’t five episodes ago that they figured out how to be friends. And it was the most awesome thing. I like them being friends, and if they want to be more, they got to put the time in. And by time I don’t mean “Jake pining after her, pretending to be supportive, subtly trying to sabotage her relationship”, which is where I suspect they’re going with this. That’s bullshit. In this day and age, I’ll support the healthy relationship over the dishonest one every time.
They figured out how to make Boyle and Rosa friends. They’re at least 90% dealing with their awkwardness in a healthy manner. They actually converted what was an offensive relationship into a decent one. Boyle swapped out an affection that was completely unreciprocated for one that was completely matched.
Fact: If there were a button I could press to make Sir Patrick Stewart a regular fake news correspondent I would never stop pressing it
I think my favorite part about Sir Patrick Stewart portraying John Oliver is using hackneyed Britishisms to differ suspicion, even though he’s actually British.
this deserves endless reblogs.
I suspect there’s a John Travoltacicle somewhere in L.A.
