An Ode to Brandon Routh

6 Mar

As his run on Legends of Tomorrow comes to an end, it seems appropriate to take a few minutes and appreciate all that is Brandon Routh as he flies off to the next endeavor. I, personally, will miss his adorable sweetness and charm on the show, but am looking forward to whatever he does next.

ARROW Season 8×10, “Fadeout” (SERIES FINALE) recap

1 Feb

Welcome back, Arrowheads, for the last time! This short season has been one long goodbye for Oliver Queen, as he’s said goodbye to friends and family, all while preparing for the Crisis that would threaten the entire multiverse. Well, the Crisis has come and passed, and Ollie is dead, having created a new universe for all his loved ones that is slightly different than the one his extended family remembers. And while we have seen how this new universe has affected other heroes, we only know about the future of Star City, being at peace for decades after Ollie’s passing. But what about our present? What has been changed, and what is next for everyone who knows Oliver Queen now? Continue reading

ARROW Season 8×09, “Green Arrow and The Canaries” recap

24 Jan

Welcome back from the break, Arrowheads! So in case you didn’t know from not watching Crisis on Infinite Earths (and also, why didn’t you?), Oliver Queen is dead. He died protecting the multiverse, and came back again to die (again), giving birth to a new Earth. A lot of things have changed (if you’ve been watching the other Arrowverse shows, you know it’s been quite a bit), but what about what happened to Ollie’s kids, Mia and William? What about their future, now that it’s already been radically changed already before Crisis? Continue reading

DC Recap Round-Up 3, SPECIAL EDITION: CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS (PART 2)

17 Jan

Welcome back from the holiday break, and welcome back to the second half of our recaps of Crisis on Infinite Earths! Before we close off this big crossover event, let’s just remind ourselves what happened last time, because it’s quite a bit. The Monitor assembles a team of heroes to combat the universe(s) destroying threat of the Anti-Monitor, and it goes…not so well. Oliver Queen gets killed off early, but may serve a bigger purpose in the fight yet to come, as something else. And as worlds are destroyed, our heroes fight to save the multiverse. Unfortunately for them, the last of their Earths are wiped away, and our core group of heroes find themselves whisked away to the Vanishing Point, a space outside of the universe where they are safe. That core group being: The Flash, Supergirl, Batwoman, White Canary, scientist Ryan Choi, Martian Manhunter, and…Lex Luthor? Just how do these seven even succeed at restoring EVERYTHING they’ve lost? And what is the dead Oliver Queen’s role in all of this? Continue reading

DC Recap Round-Up 3, SPECIAL EDITION: CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS (PART 1)

13 Dec

Welcome to the first of our special Recap Round-Ups on Crisis on Infinite Earths! There’s gonna be a lot of ground to cover, lots of team ups, lots of cameos, lots of surprises, and lots of deaths to cover for this one (making up the first three parts of this epic crossover), so let’s just get the basics out of the way. For the last year or so, we’ve had appearances by an alien being known as The Monitor, warning our heroes of a threat so immense it could destroy all of the multiverse! And now, things have lined up where that threat has come.

In the build-up, the Monitor recruited Oliver Queen and his friends (even bringing his grown children, Mia and William, from the future into the present) to prepare for the eventual multidimensional fight. Barry Allen has been living with the spectre of knowing The Flash will die because of this Crisis, and been preparing for that eventuality. And now, one of the Harrison Wells of the multiverse, Nash, may have just released said threat from its prison by accident! So, now the Crisis has begun! Continue reading

ARROW Season 8×07, “Purgatory” recap

5 Dec

Welcome back, Arrowheads! We’ve been leading Oliver Queen and friends on these missions for The Monitor to fight the coming Crisis all season, and we have finally come to the last leg of this journey before we face the end…of Arrow. And all of this has brought Ollie and friends to the place where it all began for him: Lian Yu! So what will Ollie do, now that he has accepted he won’t survive Crisis? What is Ollie’s plan for breaking this news to his kids? And what is Lyla’s role in all of this? Continue reading

ARROW Season 8×06, “Reset” recap

28 Nov

Welcome back, Arrowheads! Oliver Queen is juggling quite a bit these days, with his grown up kids from the future in the present, preparing for a universe ending event, running errands for the mysterious Monitor, and figuring out a way to fight said Monitor in case it turns out it is the bad guy in this whole thing. Well now he can add one more problem to his list of problems: Diggle’s wife, Lyla, also working with the Monitor! Before Ollie, Diggle, and Evil Laurel can get answers from Lyla on that, they get hit with tranquilizer darts! Now what? Continue reading

ARROW Season 8×05, “Prochnost” recap

20 Nov

Welcome back, Arrowheads! We’re at the halfway point of this final season, and we’ve had plenty of shocks and big events, but probably no event more shocking than our current Team Arrow meeting their hero children from 2040! How and why they are there is still a big mystery (bet The Monitor on this one), but while they are there, this gives Ollie and Diggle an opportunity to see the future through their children, adopted or otherwise. But while Ollie tries to figure out how to fight The Monitor if it turns out he isn’t the good guy he might be, we know The Monitor has agents in Team Arrow’s midst, like Lyla, and maybe another one, if he recruits Evil Laurel into the fold with the promise of bringing back Earth-2! Will Evil Laurel join The Monitor’s cause and betray Ollie and company? And how does Russia fit into Ollie’s quest to get a Monitor fighting weapon? Read on to find out… Continue reading

ARROW Season 8×04, “Present Tense” recap

6 Nov

Welcome back, Arrowheads! Last time, Ollie and friends were trying to figure out more about the mysterious Monitor and what his intentions really are, while in the future, the assault on JJ and his Deathstroke gang went sideways as Zoe got killed in the ensuing battle. But none of that matters because, shockingly our Future Team Arrow of Mia, William, and Connor find themselves transported to now in the Arrow Bunker, literally in front of their dads, Ollie and Diggle, respectively! What is going on? Is this the Monitor’s doing? And what could happen as a result of this combo of present and future heroes? Continue reading

ARROW Season 8×03, “Leap of Faith” recap

31 Oct

Welcome back, Arrowheads! When last we left things, Ollie performed another task for The Monitor, but eventually got to realizing he knows nothing about the being sending him on these tasks. So, he’s going to find an organization with enough ancient ties to put together who The Monitor is, and that is visiting Nanda Parbat, the home of the destroyed League of Assassins! What he doesn’t know is that he’s not the only agent working for The Monitor’s goals, and that one is a very close ally: Diggle’s wife, Lyla! In the future, JJ, Diggle’s son, has put his Deathstroke gang onto a mission to kill the group trying to bring Star City and the Glades back together, and William is on that list! We’ll get to the future story eventually (and you’ll see why), but first… Continue reading
