Arrow, why do you have to break my heart in this way?

SARAH!!! NO!!!! Goddamit, this show kills off way too many people I'm attached to (Tommy, Moira, Shadow, and now Sarah). I thought the inevitable Felicity-Oliver breakup was going to meet my heartbreak quota for this episode, dammit. I was really hoping Sarah might actually be returning, and was NOT expecting her to get killed off, at least not yet. Which is weird, because I half expected they would kill of Detective Lance, seeing as they almost did it at the end of last season.

And up to that point I was really enjoying the episode. I knew they wouldn't let Ollie and Felicity stay together (is Brandon Routh supposed to be competition? I don't care if he turns out to be evil, he's pretty damn cute anyway, and they can bond over hacking--if they have to go the love triangle route it's more interesting when the rival is someone you might also root for), but knowing that Ollie-Felicity wasn't going to last going into it, I really enjoyed all their cute couple-y scenes together anyway. I was also digging Lyla and John and their new adorable baby, and the integration of Roy into the team. I even thought the Hong Kong plotline looked kind of interesting--at least it's not the damn island again. So I was totally thinking A+ episode all around here, until SARAH. *Insert wailing and gnashing of teeth*

That's why I avoid spoilers. It was a shock, but the kind that makes you go, "WTF?" If I knew it was coming, meh. :)

Brandon Routh is yummy, isn't he? He seems to be having a lot of fun as Ray Palmer. I think his acting strength is in quirky roles. :)

It's also why bringing back people from the dead cheapens death. Laurel, Quentin and Dinah have all grieved strongly for Sarah in the past, and now have to do it all over again! :(

I like Brandon Routh so much more in this role than as Superman!

I'm not sure I agree with you about bringing people back from the dead, though.

Brandon is a natural for this role!

Oh, I know I'm in the minority with my opinion about bringing people back from the dead, but I'm used to being the square peg in the round hole. ;)
