Duncan McLeod of the Clan McLeod! Wow, I havenít seen Adrian Paul in anything in ages.

I also now wonder if Emiko really is related to Oliver.

I had it on as background television when I immediately recognized the Highlander on screen. I'm amazed we haven't gotten another Highlander sequel lately.

The make-up and wardrobe people on Arrow aren't doing Katherine McNamara any favors. It's amazing how much better she looks as star of Shadowhunters than her appearances on Arrow.

Wonder when the Crisis will hit next season and how many Arrow episodes will continue after it's done.

I'd guess premiere 10/5 or 10/12/19 and air seven episodes, crossover will be episode 8, then two more episodes and it'll be over by the end of the year holiday break.

So Batwoman is probably definitely going to make it onto the schedule. It hasn't been officially picked up yet, right?

Batwoman could start in mid-season as Arrow's effective replacement.

Amell's departure was more or less known since last summer. The only thing up in the air was whether the CW would bring Arrow back without him. Every rumor I've heard says Ollie isn't killed off in Crisis, but merely retires so Amell can come back for future guest stints on Flash and the like.

There are credible whispers floating around that Supergirl also ends during Crisis and the Flash cast undergoes major changes next year. I wonder what Felicity will be doing once Arrow ends...

Re: Arrow (S7E14) -- "Brothers and Sisters" -- 3/4/19

Notice how no one is discussing the actual episode? That's pretty telling.

At this point in the show I don't really care what's going on. I'm this far in so I might as well see it to the end, but I'm just not invested in any of the characters anymore.

Look how they killed off Diaz, they just offed him while he was in prison. Also, why is every villain they encounter a freakin' ninja?

The future stuff? Who gives a rats ass? Seriously. Just a way of filling up screen time without having to have the main stars of the show on-screen.

Are we sure Diaz is dead? I may have missed the preview for next week if they showed it there.

The announcement the show is ending next year doesn't really get me more interested in watching this season, but I'll probably swing back around for this season's final episodes and try to watch the abbreviated 8th season.

It feels like the end of an era. Arrow's success lead to an explosion of superheroes on television and now cable.

Probably more of a combination of Arrow and The Flash spin-off.

Funny how Smallville was on for a decade yet didn't spawn any imitators- probably because of it's "no tights" policy.

Two movies really changed the game for superheroes in Hollywood - Iron Man and The Dark Knight. Their massive financial success got the ball rolling. I think it was only a matter of time then before superheroes would invade the small screen. A relatively straight take on The Flash became a smash success from the beginning, which unleashed DC going hog wild with tv.

My guess is still he will die and become The Spectre. Or get shoved in the Lazarus Pit or something...

I'm pretty sure Kelly Hu ages at a different rate than the rest of humanity.
