I’m going to keep my superhero reviews short and sweet. “Arrow” is in flux while Oliver recovers from his duel with Ra’as al Ghul, and “Agent Carter” came out the gate strong and has cooled down a little since. Let’s mix DC and Marvel:

Arrow S3E5: “The Secret Origins of Felicity Smoak”

Standard

By Josh Axelrod

This episode had me excited since the CW released those promotional photos of goth Felicity. Ms. Smoak has been this show’s not-so-secret weapon since her role was expanded midway through Season 1, and it’s about time she got her own episode. And for the most part, her origin story did not disappoint. Kudos to Emily Betts Rickards for absolutely nailing her first big episode.

And the plot thickens. It was only a matter of time before a clear and present danger loomed for Oliver Queen and company, and it came this week in the form of a feud between The Arrow and The League of Assassins. We also had the return of Malcolm Meryln and got some new direction for the Hong Kong flashbacks. It was a busy week for the protectors of Starling City.

Arrow S3E2: “I Don’t Want to Die Down Here”

Standard

For an episode called “Sara,” Caity Lotz certainly didn’t have much to do other than be a corpse. I expected to get some Sara flashbacks, maybe to how Sara and Oliver got together before they took that trip on the Queen’s Gambit. Instead, we got an episode that amounted to a giant dead end. There was some good material along the way, but also a few questionable creative decisions to ponder.
