    I think she was more rebelling at her dad killing her fiance.

    Yeah but she comes off as a spoiled brat who wants to get back at daddy dearest... does that sound anything remotely like any version of Huntress you know?

    None of the characters on the show resemble their comic analogues. Huntress was particularly bad because her story was more generic than usual and the actress wasn't very good given that role.

    Well she was trying to get back at her dad... he killed her fiance. And lets see, comes from a mafia family, uses a crossbow and has anger issues. Yeah that does sound like a version of Huntress to me. I just think they coulda played up her anger more. And admittedly her actress wasn't that good.

    I'd say most these characters do resemble their comic analogues. The only exception so far I'd say is Black Canary.

    I don't think they gave the actress a whole lot to work with. As much as I like those episodes, they're kinda all over the place, her character moreso than most. The character does decide she's going to go through with instigating a gang war to use as cover to murder her father because she felt embarrassed that a guy she's gone out with twice let her sit down to dinner with his buddy and his ex after she insisted despite his objection.

    Judy Dench would have trouble selling that, so it's hard to fault Jessica DeGouw.

    Kelly Hu is in the next episode extensively. I always enjoy her work. Seems liked Deadshot is back as well?

    It's never really said "mafia" in any direct way it just seems like her father is just another corrupt rich person.

    Also she only used the crossbow at Ollie's insistence when she would prefer to use guns as we have seen.

    No, even if they never said mafia, he was pretty obviously the head of an organised crime family.

    When she went after her father during the throwdown with the triad, she had the crossbow.

    They should just not write the Huntress into any episodes for a while and then have her appear as a different actress in a later season so people won't complain about the change because they had forgotten what she looked like before.

    Why are they turning green arrow into some cheap Christopher Nolan knockoff? I like my comic shows to respect the material instead of completely revamping every character only keeping the names the same and everything else is different

    Did Ollie kill Brutale at the beginning of this weeks episode?

    I like the younger Ollie and I hope as Ollie adjusts to normal life that he slowly becomes more like his old self except less whiney.

    The show's soundtrack is pretty horrid. They played some truly unfitting music during the double Dinah scene and it really, really took me out of the moment. I love the actress Katie Cassidy and I hope Dinah reuniting with Dinah gives Katie the spotlight and character development that she deserves. Also, I hope to see a momma Dinah and Huntress beatdown. Nothing like women in their 40s kicking serious ass!

    I have to say, I did not think Oliver would reveal his identity to Tommy already. I figured that would be dragged out longer, especially since we had the reveal to Felicity only a couple episodes ago. But it seems like now Tommy will grow closer to Malcom and grow farther apart from Oliver now.

    Next episode the Huntress is back. I really want to like the character in the show, but she's just an angry woman with no motivation. I wish I could be proved wrong next episode...
