THE TURNING POINT — Oliver (Stephen Amell) is shocked when he learns that Slade (Manu Bennett) has come to Starling City.  Back on the island, as Oliver, Slade and Sara (Caity Lotz) prepare to take over the freighter from Ivo (Dylan Neal), Sara pulls Oliver aside and tells him he needs to kill Ivo to prevent him from telling Slade what happened with Shado.  Oliver feels immense guilt over the situation but realizes Slade’s growing rage from the Mirakuru makes him unpredictable and he could turn on his friends if he thinks Oliver is to blame.  Oliver agrees to kill Ivo and the battle begins.  Glen Winter directed the episode written by Jake Coburn & Ben Sokolowski.

Arrow – “Suicide Squad”

AMANDA WALLER SENDS THE SUICIDE SQUAD OUT ON THEIR FIRST MISSION — Following Slade’s (Manu Bennett) return and his promise to make good on his threat to destroy Oliver’s (Stephen Amell) loved ones, Oliver focuses all his energy on preparing for battle with his former friend.  Sarah (Caity Lotz) tries to help but, fearing for her safety, Oliver pushes her away.  Meanwhile, Diggle (David Ramsey) is recruited by Amanda Waller (Cynthia Addai-Robinson) and A.R.G.U.S. to stop a warlord (Lee Majdoub) he knew from his time in Afghanistan.  Always the solider, Diggle agrees to help.  However, he’s not prepared when Amanda introduces him to the rest of the team – Deadshot (guest star Michael Rowe), Bronze Tiger (Michael Jai White) and Shrapnel (Sean Maher), all criminals he and Arrow helped put away.  Lyla (Audrey Marie Anderson) defends the team and explains the world is a complicated place, but Diggle isn’t sure he agrees.  When the mission takes a dangerous turn, Diggle is forced to make a difficult decision.  Larry Teng directed the episode written by Keto Shimizu & Bryan Q. Miller.

I don't binge-watch, I power-watch. I'm a major television junkie, but I love movies, too. I embraced my geek style at the turn of the millennium and have run with it since then. I have been working in the entertainment industry since forever, but it hasn't dulled my sense of wonder whenever I watch a great movie or an absorbing television show. I love genre -- sci fi, horror, fantasy -- in particular, I love vampires, the supernatural, space westerns, some slasher pics and stories / movies / shows related to witches and wizards. I also love comedies -- they make life easier. I've been traveling with Whedonopolis (https://www.whedonopolis.com/) since 2007 and writing for the site since 2008. I'm always up for an interesting conversation about the latest casting and plot twists on my favorite shows and movies. The views expressed on these web sites are my own and do not necessarily reflect the views of any of my employers, past or present (or future).
