Ha ha, welcome to another thrilling post from yours truly, Mr. Morbid.
Anybody watch Arrow and American Horror Story:Asylum last night?
Oh good God they were both awesome as hell, as both shows really hit it out of the park for this week's respective episodes.
Arrow gave us the arrival of The Huntress, or at least the person she'll become next week. So glad Ollie's finally found his match and a woman that truly understands his mindset, as we were introduced to the lovely Helena Bertinelli and her father's mob empire that's dwindling down fast by the time we're introduced to them.
And much like the comic series, well the pre-52 one, she has a mad on for her gangster father, which is all due to him having killed off her fiancee. From there she wages a one-woman war on his empire, and of course Arrow gets dragged into it. But then he was already going after her father anyway for the hit on some associate that nearly killed his mother, thus sparking his interest in Mr.Bertinelli.
A bunch of things happen and Arrow winds up facing off against her, and then teaming up with her towards the end, after she's been discovered by her father's partner. At the end, they decide they're the only two people that really gets each other and then they proceed to go do the vertical tangle/naked pretzel.
Next week shows a transformed Helena Bertinelli in full costume as The Huntress, as Arrow's now training her. Glad he's got a crime-fighting partner now, but you just know shit's going to go bad eventually. It just has to. Still, it's going to be a fun ride, so I can't wait until next week.
AHS is also continuing to entertain me, with all of the constant plot twists and turns every episode. I love how every time there's a sliver of hope for each one of the characters, something happens to fuck that up, ensuring that no one's going to get a happy ending, no matter how deserving they are of one. Love it!
And now for the main event, a brand new skit featuring Black Hand and my new addition to the family, Black Lantern Hal.
