I mean I don't like her either but Jesus this is a lot of hate. I'm not saying she doesn't deserve it or even to stop but pause and take a look at yourselves every once in a while. This amount of hate isn't healthy.

>>79793284
Ah, so you are just pissed Oliver tried diplomacy over a murder spree, one where he just killed Nyssa.

Felicity spotted, probably the one who told Malcolm about William in hopes that he would get rid of the competition
>>
>>79793354
>He killed Nyssa
Yes. He was the one killing Nyssa. Not Malcolm. Did you even watch the same episode?

>Muh diplomacy
Had he allowed Malcolm to kill her innocent lives won't be spilled, Thea would be saved. You would think 4 seasons would teach him something about the greater good but he goes full retard instead. For his own selfish reasons, he wanted a perfect outcome. Luckily he has enough plot armor to pull it off. Not so lucky were the bystanders caught in the league vs league fights. But hey they aren't named are they? Oliver from Season 1 is much smarter than the Oliver we currently see.

You forgot Season 2?
>>
Okay, I'm gonna ask the obvious question.

Why the flying fuck was it necessary to cripple Malcolm to get the ring off? You cut off his fucking hand and then punched him to knock him out. WHY DIDN'T YOU JUST PUNCH HIM IN THE FIRST PLACE, YOU FUCKING PSYCHOPATH?
>>
>>79793623
>It's an Oliver goes full retard episode
>>
>>79793632
Full retard doesn't even begin to cover it. I was just starting to get a bit of hope back into this show. Figured maybe it won't be as bad as season 3. Nowhere near seasons 1 and 2, but hey - it's growth.

Then this shit happens. This episode was the dumbest fucking shit I've seen in a long time. It's worse than the time Oliver got stabbed through the chest, then kicked off a cliff, falling 100m onto rocks, in the freezing cold, with no shirt on, then he recovered completely in a couple of weeks with nothing but fucking HERBS.

Oh, and let's cripple the ONE villain in the entire show who can straight up beat Oliver without superpowers or mirakuru and shit.

My god I'm so mad.
>>
>>79793674
All the good writers moved to Flash
>>
The problem with the show is we all got cucked. It started out as a decent comic book show with some stupid drama, and in the second season it became a good comic show with stupid drama. Then the execs implemented their plan, it went full drama in the third season.

We aren't watching a comic book show, we are watching a drama. Oliver isn't the main character, Felicity is.
>>
>>79793623
At first I thought they were faking it, cause that was just such a retarded move that it had to have somehow been orchestrated, but the fact that they actually went thorugh with it, and then the fact that "surprise, surprise" it's going to backfire in their faces is just going full retard.
>>
>>79793126
>but pause and take a look at yourselves every once in a while. This amount of hate isn't healthy.
They never do and never will. I'd say just filter it out but it reached the level you cant ignore it since they went way past the hate threshold where they have to just bitch about something at every turn and just look like blathering idiots as expected of 4chan. I mean the person who responded didnt even seem to read what you typed and automatically assumed you were defending her.
>>
I'm watching ep12

I was hoping Ollie would say "Roy Harper, you have failed this city." when he broke through the window
>>
>>79793185

Nyssa's decision makes perfect sense character wise. She fucking despises Merlyn, so even if in the end she didn't want to rule the league, do you really she'd let an asshole like Merlyn stay in charge? After killing Sara and orchestrating all the bs to get the throne for himself, robbing her birth right? You understand nothing of honor and legacy.
>>
>>79794015
>you have failed this city

I don't get it is this some kind of movie reference? Why would Oliver say this completely random sentence?
>>
>>79793623
>Why the flying fuck was it necessary to cripple Malcolm to get the ring off?

Merlyn needed to be defeated in trial combat under witnesses with the proper etiquette in order for the league to go along with Nyssa assuming power from Merlyn. This is a secret, centuries old assassin cult, you need to follow protocol.
>>
>>79794085
>current arrow writers: the post

It's a reference to a better show.
>>
>>79794052
>Let me blackmail the guy who has saved my life multiple times with his sister's life, drag a war into the streets of his city because I am too much of a pussy to fight my own battles.
What a joke. Honor? Legacy? All I see is a coward hiding behind Oliver because she has no power to wield her own legacy which was stolen from under her nose.
>>
>>79794142

All Nyssa did was seek an option where she didn't have to split the league in half and cause an internal civil war that would have decimated the league. It's entirely tactical decision, and considering her way was offering Merlyn a way to save his daughter in exchange for abdicating, it was a honorable way to do it. Using Oliver to intermediate the deal makes sense when Merlyn is known to be backstabbing sack of shit.
>>
>>79794201
By blackmailing someone into fighting your battles for you? Also the initial condition was for Oliver to kill Malcolm not just to abdicate. The heir to the Demon's Head reduced to a coward. Her father was right in not giving her the ring, he probably flipped a few times in his grave during this episode.
>>
So, what was even the point of Katana in previous episode?
>>
>>79794285
What was the point of the entire episode. Oliver could have solved it by knocking out Malcolm and taking his ring in the first 10 minutes.

Fun fact: Merlyn was more helpful to Oliver this season than Diggle and Laura combined.

And yet it is a tiny, TINY fraction of the passion and anger football fans show towards their retarded fucking sport. But no, since it's nerds doing it, and it's directed at a female character, THAT AMOUNT OF HATE SUDDENLY ISN'T HEALTHY!

Fuck right off, dude. You're not helping anyone or anything by shitting on folks showing passion towards the media they consume. I know you think you're helping! The keyword there is "think." You're actually making the world shittier and more boring.

Eat shit, the /co/ Arrow live-treads are unusable now thanks to Felicity shitposting. You cannot have ANY discussion about it where she doesn't come up and get the fans REEEEing about it, we've gotten past even /tv/ and it's hatred of Skyler from Breaking Bad.

And football isn't a narrative series, that's a false dichotomy.

Gosh it's almost like people use the internet to vent their frustrations in a manner they can't do out in the real world.
>>
>>79795783
Actually, it's a perfect comparison BECAUSE football is not a narrative series.

Fans of any given narrative series don't go flip cars in the street, riot, set fires, and steal shit when a story doesn't go their way. Football fans have been known to do that when their team loses.

And yet caring about stories is "unhealthy."

You're an idiot. Not only is that not actually happening, but even if it was, that doesn't stop you from using it, that just tells that you can't stnad seeing people have an opinion other tan your own. The only way the talkback threads are "unusable" is because they're effectively dead due to everybody dropping the show.

It's fine for what it is, which is basically TV fan-fiction starring everyone's favorite D-listers.

I know it's just the writers being hacks, but why does EVERY hero need a no kill code? J'onn J'onzz should not have a moral dilemma about killing an extremely dangerous shape-shifting alien that just conned it's way into the super secret base and oh yeah committed genocide on his race. Last I recall Thea begrudgingly accepted Malcolms presence in her life mostly cause he's just going to ninja into her apartment anyways when he wants to chat, doubt she'd miss him too much.
>>
Lot is OK. You can miss the 1st 5 or so mins of an ep and you won't really miss anything. The problem I have with it is how bottom of the barrel the vandal savage actor is. Also I would have wanted a more comic accurate rip hunter

I just don't understand why the fuck Oliver would side with Nyssa, what kind of stupid decision is that? They barely even know each other other than "we're kinda sorta married and you killed my dad" and it's not like Nyssa can do anything to Oliver, she's fucking useless. Whereas Merlyn has been a constant ally al season, knows all of Oliver and co's secrets, it a more skilled fighter, s the father of one of the crew. Fuck all the bad shit he did in the past, everyone's been over it for the past year, why are they suddenly arsed about it now? Fucking stupid mother fuckers.

So Nyssa is finally in the spot she should have been at the end of Season 3. Now we wait for Laurel and Oliver to start banging again.

Season 3 starts off strong and then after the cross-over episode, goes to hell in a hand basket outside of the Vinnie Jones episodes. Then, Season 4 starts, and it has like.. a few episodes, which is like woah. Arrow might be back. But then it goes back to shit.

Felicity went from quirky, cute sidekick character who was a valuable part of the team to being Oliver's true love that hogs the focus of the story and cries in literally every episode.

That screenshot is literally all you needed to show me. Im going to save myself some pain and just skip to the episode with the boxing glove arrow and then drop it. Which episode was that?

I am fucking horrified at how quickly Merlyn went down.

He was an unstoppable monster in Season 1. He went down in about 20 seconds last night. It was bullshit.

The way it was shot was so weird I thought Merlyn and Ollie were in cahoots and it was all a trick on Nyssa. First Slade jobbed super hard last season, now Malcolm.
