Lets be honest.
Season 2 is mediocre at best. The loss of Thawne has
Season 1 had a stronger overarching storyline, but season 2 is very good and the Earth-2 story arc sounds very intriguing and promising. Plus, the first nine were sacrificed in several places to build up to "Legends of Tomorrow", which is now out of the way.
Season 1: 9/10.
Season 2: 8/10 so far.
>within 10 minutes of the Arrow/Flash crossover, Kendra learns Barry is Flash, meets the entire team for some reason, then learns Oliver Queen is Green Arrow and meets his team
Goddamn that pissed me off so much
I agree, Kendra and Carter's introduction was very awkward. And they have no chemistry.
They should've introduced Kendra earlier and let her built a little rapport with the team before they bring her in on the secret.
Both Arrow and Flash are in holding patterns until Legends of Tomorrow starts. They've both been pulling overtime propping that series up to get ready.
At least Arrow has managed to set up a villain in the first half. Zoom is a walking plot device who hasn't done shit except Bane Barry and make spoopy noises, he's had zero characterization.
>inb4 because it's a mystery
Good for them. That doesn't excuse the lack of villain writing, especially coming off a season that devoted an entire season to the characterization of its main villain.
Unpopular opinion time.
I like Cavanagh better as "i don't give a fuck, call the police" Earth 2 Wells, rather than "I wish I could silently hate you to death" Eobard-posing-as-Wells.
He feels a lot more natural in this role.
This! I was so hype for Jay and thought I was crazy for hoping, then I was validated, and now he's either gone or bitching about Wells.
Why must I suffer?
well good news
thawne is coming back in s2e11. sure it might be some doppelganger bullshit but i feel like the creators of the show know how much thawne means to the narrative of the story, and especially to barry's character, that they wouldn't cheapen it by psyching us out about it.
plus thawne could easily be essential to taking down zoom, because he has the most knowledge about the speed force and how it functions.
>Harry being maximum smug douchebag yet lovable at the same time
>scary Zoom destroying Barry
>Iris is tolerable and level headed
>Earth 2 shenanigans upcoming
>Diggle crossover upcoming
How can season 2 be mediocre when everything this man says is pure gold
Surprisingly, I think Arrow season 4 has the upper hand right now. It set up its villain and where it's going with main character is interesting. Midseason final was just a cherry on the cake. My biggest complaint is that they have established that Oliver likes to cook, yet it's not chili.
Why can't we have one show not dropping the ball even a little for once?
>still shitty Felicity drama
>Laurel being fucking bonkers just to fix the plot
>Felicity's mom still existing
>Malcolm still allowed to do whatever the fuck he wants because they want Barrowman screentime
>cop dad and Felicity mom romance because Tumblr
Upper hand? You crazy.
