How about last night's episode of Arrow huh?
Man, did Ollie swerve the shit out of us and Team Arrow, especially them , not once, but twice!
Basically this week it's revealed that Ollie and Merlyn cooked up a plan where Ollie pretends to submit to Ra's brainwashing in order to shutdown the Ra's and the League from within....over time. What they didn't count on was Ra's moving things up, and wanting Ollie to douse Starling City with the Omega Virus.
Forced to reveal themselves to Team Arrow, they all go back to Nanda Parbat to stop Ra's.
But then they all get captured....again...amd Merlyn snitches Ollie out to Ra's.
Nice one Merlyn. Never change man, never change;)
Now thanks to Merlyn, Ollie has to once again prove his loyality to Ra's, and supposedly exposes Team Arrow to the same virus that Ra's wants to use on Starling City and the same virus that killed Akio.
It was pretty cool seeing a really well-designed costume for Katana. She was wearing the NU52 version of her costume, but it fit here, and looked good instead of weird and unrealistic.
Gotta' feel bad for her though, as she was forced to kill her husband, effectively losing all of her family.
Maybe Ollie will feel bad for her and offer her a place on Team Arrow.....
And you know they're not dead.
I think Ollie just used some knockout gas so it would look good, but I bet Team Arrow didn't know that, as they looked and sounded like they were really about to die, once again betrayed by Ollie.
Man is that dude going to have a hell of a task in front of him just trying to explain and smooth things over with them after this.
Oh, and Thea found Roy. Who then hit it and quit it. Again.
Damn, you'd think she'd be smarter than that by now, but no, she's sprung.
Thouhg to be fair, she didn't think he'd leave her again....and with HIS costume too no less. Hmmm.
I believe next week is the next to last episode of the season, and man what a season finale yet to come I think. Can't wait to see how it all ends.
And now, onto todays fantasy fight, as I pit Cable against Captain America in this week's edition of So, Who Would Win?
Now these two have fought before during the Avengers: X-Sanction mini-series where Cable believes(or tricked into believing) that the Avengers will kill Hope, leading to the world ending.
It was horrible, and I really regret having bought the 3 issues that I did, because Jeph Loeb sucks.
The issue I have manily isn't so much that Cable couldn't take Cap, but just in the way it was done, and so, so quick.
Look, I realize that if you really think about it, Cable's basically a time-traveling mutant version of the Punisher, but even still, taking out Captain America should be by no means an easy feat. Just ask his rogues' gallery about that. Or the Avengers.
Still, I'm sure he could, but do you?
Here's the stats on both men:
Who Wins and Why?
You guys and gals know the drill. Tell me who think wins out in the end.
Have a good weekend folks.....
