    Firefly is the only third rate Batman character he's went up against,Deadshot and Slade have history with Ollie and it does make sense for him to be facing off against those guys.

    Exactly and he went up against Meryln. I'm enjoying the hell out of the show. Ollie's been my favorite DC hero forever and I love that DC is finally pushing him.

    By season 3 they will be using crazy quilt at this rate lol.
    Isn't Firefly the first death of a major villiain, other than than the gang member from Episode 6? China White is still alive, Deathstroke will still be in flashbacks, it has been confirmed Deathshot lived, Dark Arrow is alive, most of the gang from Episode 6 is alive, Huntress is stiill out there.

Also, if Ollie's warehouse burnt down, why was it still standing and looking completely unchanged in the final shots?
    Maybe you should focus more on what Ollie is saying in the actual ep. He said in the last scene, that this is why its good to have concrete,steel place as his HQ, the fire couldnt hurt it. Also he saved more people by stopping the serial killer villain. Who would save those people otherwise? Tommy?

    Does anyone think Ollie is kind of a douchebag in this show sometimes?

    Of course that would be one of the few things that it does have with the comic book.

    I didn't know Quentin Lance was only a Sergeant i thought he was a detective.

    Is Katie Cassiday too young in real life to ooogle?

    You mean the bit that was immediately preceeded by Digg saying, "Good thing the fire didn't spread to down here," and that the arrowcave is fine, but everything else was toast? No worries, Champ, I'm on top of it.

    That's certinally not the tone of the commentator on the news cast.

    I was right- Ollie spent the holiday break completely recovering from his injuries!

    I smiled big when he got suited up and fully armed in combat gear on the island, especially when he found the map.

    Firefly reminded me of Two-Face, the way they did his makeup.

    I liked how Oliver was hesitant to be Green Arrow because he was afraid how his death would impact those close to him he lead into his life. Firefly's orgin was clever making him a fireman out for revenge.

    There's also that really manipulative guy who was retconned into his origin and the villain in a GA/GL cross over with Kyle and Conner.

    That's too comic booky. If Ollie kills Merlyn and Tommy finds out about it, Tommy might be mad (though considering their relationship, he might not), but being mad doesn't turn you into a super villain. (I'm still trying to figure how Ollie became such a skilled fighter and archer in the five years he was away.)

    Training from hell, either from the chinese archer or the assasins/soldiers on the island.

    Well, while she is old enough to be my daughter, I have zero qualms about ogling any woman in her mid-twenties.

    Having said that, Susanna Thompson is still my favorite.
